My dear children.
Some may come first and many may not please don't despair. The academy positions are not everything. I have so many friends doing well despite being not so good in studies. The failure creates a desperate person and desperate person takes 'the path not taken' making him innovator, inventor and a great businessmen. Besides that, should you fall it is from a lesser height. So do not despair if you think you have put in your effort. Regret comes to those who shammed it out.
The toppers need to be applauded, but life is not all about academics. You have to learn yourself to be a good friend, a good husband, a good father, a good son, to sum it all, you have to learn be a good human being - no corruption in thoughts and deeds. Being kind to all beings including animals, that's what all our religion preaches.
We are all made differently and for different purpose, I guess. Some are good in studies, some are good in music, some are good in games and so on. But being born in an under developed country, you may not be able to make a living out of your aptitude, on the brighter side there are many fields left not tried. I know it is easier said than done but our government is willing to help the young entrepreneurs.
You are young and you can afford to make couple of mistakes from which you may stumble but you have to get up and fight. Never give up. Unless you go through the rough times you will not know what is a smooth times and once you have hit the rock bottom the only way is up.
This is not the end of journey. Journey has just begun. Do not despair. 'The best time to plant fruit tree was twenty years back but next best time is now'. Nobody other than you, know what is best suited for you. Do what you like the most rather than getting dictated in doing the things contrast to your aptitude and repent whole life.
Bon voyage …………….
