They say “The lust for comfort murders the passion of your soul.” Apparently, I murdered my passion too. Baba asked me again if he should do my admission in Prime CA tomorrow. Somewhere deep inside, I know maybe this isn’t made for me. I know figures and numbers don’t intensify me like words do. But how do I tell him that maybe I won’t be able to turn into reality, the only dream he has seen for me. I don’t have the guts to say that.
You know mamu, after you breathed your last, neither did Baba judge my choices, nor did I rebel against his decisions. Although this time, I wish I could. But no, I endeavour to elate him with my accomplishment. And why not, when he has given feathers to all my aspirations. As cliché as it sounds, I, for once, want him to pat on my shoulder and say, “नानी, I’m proud of you.”

It feels serene to see a wide smile on Baba’s face today after a blue moon. But, how do I confess to him that his daughter failed this time too. How do I torment him with my agony on his birthday?
They say, “The phoenix rises back from the ashes.” But these four consecutive attempts of failure and two years of fritter make me ponder whether am I apt becoming a CA and even if not, will Baba ever look at me with delight? Where do I learn how life rises from the dead? Who do I share my sorrows with if not my scribbles and you? I wish you were here to solace me during my vulnerabilities and console me that I will be fine. I miss you mamu. But no worries, your daughter is a warrior. She will fight this tough time too.

You always instilled in me that everyone is a protagonist of their story. Today, as my book “Decisions and Dilemmas” is receiving ‘Book of the Year’ award, I understand the meaning of your words. I know you must be smiling out there. Thank you for teaching me to survive through the worst, yet remain calm within. Thank you for being there for me when I wasn’t uttering a word, yet screaming out pain in that silence. Baba’s upbringing and your endearment have bestowed so much courage that I put the two words Chartered Accountant before my name with pride.
Much much love,
