Dear Mr. Universe,
How are you? I am writing, to express my gratitude. You’ve been kind, and I am thankful. Looking back, I realised how fine life has been to me. I’ve experienced all that is good on the earth.
I’ve loved my parents, my brother, my friends, a beautiful girl, a lovely kid and I’ve been loved back. What a joy it is. Sometimes, I’ve been kind to strangers and strangers have been kind to me – genuine compassion – I don’t have the writing ability to express the satisfaction of this emotion.
I’ve complained of being in a rut sometimes. All I meant, was that I was not being able to fight for a mission. The complaint was never about set-backs or failure to win – no win or loss is anyways permanent. But not being able to fight for a cause was frustrating. I couldn’t make peace with a mission-less life. I indeed was in a rut.
And then, you helped me actualise the dream which is the essence of my existence. You helped me find a mission which was worth “dying” for and helped me on a path where I had a fighting chance to fight for the mission. This is where you won me over all the way. I wish to make a point i.e. even if death happens in the next moment – it is eventually going to come to all of us, there is no running away from the universal truth that death is – I’ll die a happy man. I’ll be grateful for the life I’ve lived.
The mission is to bring in “The great Indian coding renaissance” and PepCoding is the flag, under which I’ll take the battle for this cause. I’ll make sure nothing else will matter but this cause. I’ll not let money, health, motivation become roadblocks - I’ll not let roadblocks be roadblocks. I am just glad; I got to fight for it. This is my fight and I’ll gladly take the wins and the losses; scars and the medals; heartbreaks, jubilations and the tribulations along the way. This is the only way I could live, a life of mission.
I’ve been advised by people wiser than myself, not to make goal declarations. I understand it makes sense – a lot of it – if you lose on a declared goal you lose face. But me being me, I’ll rather make a goal declaration. I’ll not let the fear of shame guide my expressions.
Here is what me and PepCoding have setup on achieving
I’ve kept a single goal declaration to not let the emphasis be scattered, but a goal can never be clearly expressed without clearly defined and measurable metrics. Here are a few metrics we will hold ourselves against
It doesn’t matter whether the above will take 1 year, 5 years, 10 years or the entire life. I’ll love to die on my work-desk working for the goals and metrics mentioned above.

A Student turned Teaching Assistant turned Instructor. Not long ago while sitting among the students, I always wondered how I could replicate Sumeet Sir's way of teaching and make the best impact out of it. Now I am always on my feet to make sure that each student gets the same experience as I got with Sumeet Sir.
Being an ex-employee of Amazon, Microsoft and Traveloka, it makes me aware of the knowledge required and the competition to get into these top companies. Imparting the same knowledge to my younger ones and helping them achieve their dreams with my experiences is a goal which I always dreamt of.

The first face you will see at Pepcoding. I am THE ONE. Looking after customer sales and accounts at Pepcoding. I might not know all this coding, but I am the first test you have to clear to take admissions. With 10 years of experience in the education sector, it's always great to be around college kids.
