The Curious Case of Rahul Viswanath .............

This morning I was listening to this song by a Scottish band Travis .......... "Why does it always rain on me?" . Then had few quick curious questions in my mind as to .............
  • Why was I born on Feb 28th ? Even though it was leap year,why not Feb 29th ?
  • Why did I never have siblings ?
  • Why did I get into engineering even though I wanted to be a journalist ?
  • Why did I not take up dance or theatre serious even though I won many accolades ?
  • Why did I move away from Bangalore - London - Chicago ?
I am sure we all have questions which are all left unanswered ? Then I felt the song lyrics should have been more like ....... "It does rain on everyone not only Me......"

It rains on all of us. I wanted to be a Physicist and work on Quantum Physics. But I've endede up working as a software engineer creating works that are based on somebody else's whims and fancies. Thatz life man.
But again... therez still time. We can change it if we are ready to take the risk. Like they do it in "Rock On..."

Rahul did you find answers for your questions ?

And that's ok, you don't want to be left out. Else you'd miss all the fun (or not so much fun) experiences in the life.

In regards to your 6 questions, I know there's nothing you could do about the first two but the rest you could if you want.

Ya.. Exactly.. Me too feel the same sometimes.. Why does it rain only on me..I always wanted to be doc.. N today I am.

but I always wanted to do something creative and I loved drama and dancing..and I dont get to do all this becoz of wht I had chosen...a proffesion which I chose where I cannot get time for other things.. life is like this.. u always want more...plus i m so greedy.. i want to do so many things at one time..
so I think I should stop askin more n more.. I think i Shud be content wid wht god gave.. n do wht i am supposed to do n not dance.. LOL...

@vinay @rahul
i guess its never late to do what you want to do.
For example CV Raman was a clerk for a long time before he got serious and followed his loved path. All of us are waiting for that tipping pt.
