Irrational fantasm?

"....This is irrational.....I don't get why you want to take this up...This project is defunct...". Well, thank God, at times many of these seemingly worthwhile dissuasions fortunately fall on deaf ears.

Anyway, this was not the first time we have had to stomach such cynical view points. When some of us decided to plunge into the development sector post MBA, some pooh-poohed this as a mere hieghtened and nonsensical exercise to grab undue attention; a few wellwishers thought we were on an off-base and iffy mind trip; but a handful, who had some sense of appreciation, constantly fuelled our dream in many ways.

It seems that when passion meets focus, there is no dearth of opportunities. Today destiny has carved a path which we always wanted to tread on. We are not sure of the destination; but we do know that we have enough to soak up from the twists and turns along this journey. We may be insanely optimistic of making a difference in the lives of many. But, as someone said, nothing defines humans better than their zeal to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs.

Well, for now only time shall speak if this career choice of ours is irrational fatasm.
