The road to IIT
Years 1999 2001: So here it begins. I started preparing for Engineering Entrance in 1999 and could not get into any of the good colleges. Two subsequent failures because of my focus on something else.
The paradigm shifted in 2001. My dream to get into an Indian Institute of Technology became so intense that I always visualized myself as an IIT graduate. I took an old name plate of my fathers and on its rear side I wrote, AMIT KUMAR, B. Tech. (IIT). I dreamed about feeling the pride of graduating from IIT and being the first graduate of my family.
I could not get into IIT, but into the University of Roorkee in July 2001. And then my dream came true… in September 2001 the University of Roorkee was declared as the 7th IIT of India. I became an IITan!!! Still there are tears in my eyes when I am writing this story. I used The Secret unknowingly.
Today I want to say thanks to Rhonda who made everyone aware of it. Soon I am going to be the new multimillionaire of India. As the Universe has already told me… MY WISH IS HIS COMMAND.
