Rajiv stood by his office window which showcased his favourite city. He looked down at the paper in his hand. The most awaited letter was here, confirming his acceptance to a top notch University. This had been his dream ever since he could remember.
A foolish dream, his family and fellow villagers mocked as he was growing up.
An ambitious dream, his fellow students acknowledged.
A dream that had surpassed it’s coming to reality time, his colleagues reminded him.
Here he was, letter in hand.
Ageing parents. A pregnant wife. A new promotion at work. All requiring his attention, his presence.
He looked down at the city, at the crossroad spread symmetrically beneath him.
Which direction should he take, he asked himself again?
As he saw the cars and truck below following their paths through and around the crossroad confidently he made up his mind. He would go to University.
