Chalo ji, pehla saal repeat, parents pareshaan, aas pass society waale nazar utha ke dekh rahe. That year by far was the best learning experience of my life. It taught me that your relatives and the relatives of your neighbours who are in the most boring dead end job you could possiblty imagine will give you life advice while you in your head say, "Bhenchod tu clerk ki naukri karta hai." Because of course, society demands you to be polite to people insulting you if they're elder to you and/or are related.
But by far the most important thing that year taught me was that you shouldn't care about the money, the fame, the fortune, the success. Care about your happiness. Do things that make you happy, everything else will fall into place on it's own. Yes, it's easier said than done, yes you'll face rejection, yes you'll work harder than you would have ever worked had you taken the set path of school, college, post grad, office, marriage etc etc. But you'll be happier beyond your wildest dreams. I am. And trust me I've been way broke than I would have been had I done what society expects of me. But I've been happy even while broke. I know people who've been in similar fields and are amongst the happiest people I've met. Do what you want to do. Not what you think should be done based on what people have been doing over the years.
