Kahet Tagore ..

I did not really want to do an MBA, but got 8th rank in the entrance test for NM Part time MBA Program.
I really wanted to study Design, but failed in the NID's PG Entrance Test.

Dad came to Mumbai yesterday and after knowing about the results, quoted something that Rabi Thakur (Rabindranath Tagore) had said:

"Jaha chai, taha bhul kore chai. Jaha pai, taha chai naa."

Which mean, "What I want, I want by mistake. What I get, is something I dont want".

Now, you might wonder why Tagore said that what he wants is something he wants by mistake. Think..

The logic behind is that when you dont care about the things those things you do straight forwardly and bindass which have positive effect.

The things for which you are conscious and over concerned results in negative effect.

Isn't it contradictory to Paulo Coelho's famous (and now extremely over-used) quote - When you want something very badly, the whole universe conspires to make it happen?
