A new role

On april 3rd I was celebrating my birthday with mom (dad was out of town). She had got few pastries and made  Pani puri. That day i turned 26. As we were celebrating, I looked at mom. She was emotional. She said “I have only one wish. I want to see you flying”. I told her”, “Don’t worry mom. Everything is fine. I will definitely get my dream job before your birthday”. I hugged her and we both smiled.

Moms birthday was on 1st September. I did not know how would i get my dream job before moms birthday. Everything was blank in front of my eyes. But i kept telling myself that ‘No matter what, I will get my dream job before 1st September’.

Last year, my ex-girlfriend told me about a book called “The Secret- by Rhonda Byrne”. This book talks about positive thinking and law of attraction. I really thank my ex-girlfriend for suggesting me this book. After reading this book, I kept thinking positive about everything. I made a wish-board and pinned all the things which i wanted. After few months i could see it was working. While surfing through online social communities, i had a chance to talk to a Naina. She is also a believer of Law of attraction. We used to discuss about our respective dreams and things we wanted in life. We were strangers but we still kept our positive conversation. This helped me to stay motivated. She helped me a lot in this process. I really thank her for this. I would never have been so positive without her.

As moms birthdays was approaching, i could see that Law of attraction was working in effective way. By August end i had cleared all selection processes at IndiGo and was waiting for joining letter. I wanted to see my mom to be happy on her birthday. I did not get joining letter till her birthday. But very next day i received a call from IndiGo HR informing about my joining. There it was. Though law of attraction was late by a day, it worked. Mom and dad were in kitchen, i hugged them and said “I will be joining IndiGo a day after. Its a dream come true.” Mom and dad were in tears. I have never seen them that happy ever before.

I joined IndiGo on 4th September 2014. Its been a great journey. If you read my past posts, you will realise how tough it was to reach till this stage. But nevertheless, I made it and i am happy. IndiGo was always a dream company for me. Its a great feeling when i put on my IndiGo identity card or when i see First Officer tag on my company profile.

Its a new beginning. I thank everyone who contributed to this. Thanks to my ex-girlfriend, thanks to ‘a girl who broke my heart’, thanks to all my friends who believed in me, thanks to Naina. Special thanks to my parents, sisters and Ajinkya (my bestie).

I always believed in myself. Never took ‘No’ for an answer. Now i have a new role to play in my life. A role as a Captain Nimish Ghandat, First Officer, IndiGo. I’m loving it.
