"I grew up with most teachers who only cared about my report card. They said 'This is the gateway to your future. Good marks, good job, good life.'
I was an aimless student stuck in the rut of life. I had taken up Physics as my undergrad major-having no idea of what it actually was. My physics teacher was my nemesis. After all, I was the problem child- A bane to teach. I had absolutely no idea about the subject or my life!
One day, I came across my father's old polaroid. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I started going around the city and clicking photographs. With 50 bucks in my pocket, days of multiple train and bus rides later, I found my passion!
But, my undergrad degree remained unfulfilled. Everyday was agony. This was not what I wanted to do. So, one day, my physics teacher noticed the utter detachment I had to her class. She asked if I needed to be somewhere. I said I wanted to be out with a camera, on the street. Surprisingly, she said, 'Just go. And don't worry about attendance.'(excerpt)
