  • Not exactly my story, but I can relate a lot with me. I never left my job, but compromised a lot at every step.

    Now, I feel I am too old but still gathering courage for final strike.

    Don't have any job suggestion for u. But u may apply for MSW through distance, that will surely add for future scope in NGO's and different UN organizations. UN jobs are highly paid and dynamic too. Being a CSE aspirant you can sail through their interviews.

    And as far as missing friends marriage, girlfriend and other such happiness is concerned, I believe that neither of the events were the last source of happiness. In future many occasions of probably much happier moment might be waiting to embrace u.
    This is my first attempt and I may not posses sufficient experience to suggest you but still I would say that we should always enjoy every second of our life. And by saying that I mean to ask you that didn't you enjoyed the preparation phase. Wasn't running from coaching to mess a challenge? And didn't you overcame that?
    Didn't reading newspapers and subjects enhanced your knowledge? Didn't preparation gave you a new, brighter and better perspective to look around?
    I know you enjoyed every bit, then why get dishearten brother. UPSC is not important than life itself.

    I wish you find pleasure in every coming moment, stay honest, stay noble. Wish you a great future ahead.
    Its not about how much time you have, its what you choose to do with it.
