Coming from an IT background, I know what it means to work sitting in front of the system utilizing mental energy and staying put for longer hours to accomplish challenging tasks. Having seen the travel from computer languages to mobile apps development today, the journey has not been smooth though people envy us for the money we earn but then the work the job demands is no easy task and carries with it stress, strain, fatigue and the additional overload of sitting in front of the system for hours together. Moreover this is one field we can grow stale on the job if we do not keep us in tune with the latest developments and technology updates. The challenges are many and multifaceted but still it holds the interest of many youngsters aspiring to make it big in this field.
There were times when we aspired to make it to US to work for the environment the firms offered us. Today, in the times when the whole world is looking at India for its Make In India, and Startups, I was shocked and sad to note that the IT pass outs ambition lies in finding their dream job in MNCs who have made it to India to utilize the vast talent pool we have here.

Positive Vibes make this world what it is and helps us survive and believe in tomorrow while living today with confidence. We grew up learning to be positive and it has helped us tide through difficult times with the confidence that this too will pass and better times lie ahead. But Positive has a negative impact in all our minds in one case, being HIV positive. Still an area people refuse to talk about or acknowledge, I saw one of my friends suffering from AIDS die a silent death for no fault of hers. She led a humiliated, ostracized life shunned by family deprived of support, refusing help from friends and suffering all alone wishing for earlier death as a boon.
