Those days were the most difficult days for me, just after college days. After those awesome four years of my life came the darkest phase of my life. Since out of 120 students in my department we, just two girls couldn't clear a single interview during our campusing. Basically my whole world came down before me like a blackboard, an unknown territory. I did not have a clue about how to take a forward leap. When I was getting drawn towards frustration and depression with my friend getting placed, she stood like a rock with me always. She suggested that we should shift to the garden city aka the IT hub of the country to try my luck there. So, after much discussion and speculation, we shifted to Bangalore. It was in June 2015.
I was always afraid of change and this was a big change to me. I was in a trance state adjusting with all the changes. Then real struggle started. In an unknown city to find a job rather know from where to start was most challenging. She held my hand, gave me the courage, and told me to fight with the situation. She used to say always "Time favours who choose to stay."I started my job hunt. I got help from a number of referral groups on Facebook and other sites. The real fight started slowly. Every day seemed like an extended routine, getting up in the morning, packed bags, take resume copies and go for walk-ins. She would always make sure that I take my tiffin and water bottle. After the tiring day out every day little by little I wanted to give up but she made sure to keep my pieces together. Months went by and finally, my road took a U-turn.
In November 2015, I got placed in an MNC. Finally, all the struggle, all these sleepless nights, all those long walks in search of walk-in were paid off. And that day also she was standing beside me smiling with tears of joy. She is none other than my "Mother". That day a new you mean new me was born. From a frustrated, sad individual to a confidant girl who can conquer the world was born and all credit and thanks go to my mother. She saw me rise from ashes like a phoenix and she was my rock-solid pillar throughout.
