Today is a special day for me; my day of promotion at my current job at ‘Accenture-Gurgaon’, after completing my first year of service as a ‘Software Developer’ today. Perhaps the reason I decided to pen down this letter of regard & honor to my University – Eternal University Baru Sahib.In the previous months I have been reading about Akal Academies & their alumni; though I didn’t get a chance to be at one of the Academies but I could well relate my experience at the Eternal University Baru Sahib with that of the Academy Alumnus.
About my parents – My Dad works as a cashier at Canara Bank & my mother was an Ex-Supervisor at PGIMS, Rohtak; she passed away last year – it was a difficult time for me, especially to handle things at both personal & professional end at the same time, but through courage & strength I received from Baru Sahib, in the form of ‘Amrit’, I was able to put myself together bounce back.
In the society, I feel the spiritual & human-values element is missing from Education & Medics; I realized this especially when I saw the medics at the hospital while my mother was under treatment; I realized the relevance of Human values & spiritual element through this entire episode in my life. I am hopeful that in the coming times more organizations will start following education module similar to the Kalgidhar Trust & its Academies to fulfill the gap of Human Values & Spirituality which lack in our societies in the prevailing times.
About my Career – In the upcoming times, after gaining the required experience, I plan to start my own software company. Before & alongside my job I have done several freelance projects as a developer in Java & PHP language.
My messages to fellow students – whatever you do in life, do it with patience and full confidence; always remember to be yourself.
