‘Determined to Drop Out of IIT Exams, Till My Dad’s Phrases Modified My Life’


Ganesh Balakrishnan’s life took a flip when he confronted well being points a month earlier than his IIT-JEE examination. Regardless of feeling disheartened and on the verge of dropping out, his father’s recommendation helped him overturn his luck.

Do you could have an incident that modified the course of your life? For Ganesh Balakrishnan, co-founder of Aurm, it was his IIT-JEE examination.

As Balakrishnan writes in a publish on X (previously often known as Twitter), he had determined to drop out of his IIT entrance examination after he contracted hen pox a month earlier than the examination. He was disheartened. The years of preparation would go to waste, he thought. However when he instructed his father about this, his father suggested him in any other case. He instructed him to take the examination.

“Ganesh, your responsibility is to do your greatest with the issues you may management, and let go of the stuff you can not management,” had been his phrases.

And it was this recommendation that obtained Balakrishnan into IIT Bombay within the very first try.

Was it luck that helped him? “I consider luck is on the aspect of those that are constant,” he wrote. “I used to be relentlessly constant in the course of the two years of preparation for the examination. So lacking the final month (despite the fact that it was tremendous necessary) didn’t overpower the preparation of the final two years,” he added.
