I was born and brought up in the capital city of India, New Delhi, though my family has its roots in Kolkata. Hailing from an entrepreneurial background, the word “scarcity” had no meaning for me. Besides my “wants”, my “resources” were also “unlimited”. Despite all this, my zeal for reaching a level higher than “optimal” was unflinching.
As a student, I have always been a hapless victim of “envy”, owing to the unique “endowments” that I am bestowed with. To say the least, I always won the rat race of reaching the “equitable” and “pareto efficient allocation” in class.
As I reached the end of school life, the tough task of decision making (about my career goal) left me all perplexed. In accordance with my tastes and preferences, I had to make the choice between Mass Communication from SIMC and Hospitality from Switzerland. To reach the “feasible” outcome, I measured the “marginal costs” of both the choices against their respective “marginal benefits”.
This left me stranded with a “tradeoff” between my country, family and friends and a brilliant degree from a top notch institution. As I scraped through the arduous process, I realized that the cost of studying in the best college of the world was way too high, and I preferred Mass Communication from SIMC to Hospitality from Switzerland.
Today, as I am penning down this autobiography, I am delighted to realize that I am very close to “maximizing my utility”, while “minimizing the costs.”
Living in a different city all alone, about 900 miles away from home, I have learnt to eliminate negative externalities. I have swung up and down the “booms” and “recessions” of my life cycle and learnt to bail myself out, keeping in mind my budget constraint.
I envisage entering the travel industry after a few years of experience in Public Relations as I feel I have a “comparative advantage” in communicating with conviction.
In a nutshell, I can proudly say that I am on the threshold of the “equilibrium” of my Life.
