I always wondered what I want to become. My choices always changed from time to time- from Army Man to Police to Engineer to Doctor. But all that changed the day I saw the news about the success of Indias’Mangalyaan Mars mission. It was an inspiring moment when our honourable Prime Minister declared to the nation that the mission was successful.The scenes of our scientists in ISRO celebrating excited me. It was a moment of pride when India received appreciation from all over the world. Since then I believe that my life’s mission is to become a scientist. My dad and Mum was also happy hearing it from me.
The life of a Scientist is both thrilling and exciting.A scientist is always engaged in a quest to explore new knowledge and discoveries. I believe that a scientist can serve the society and help to empower the poorest of the poor. A Scientist can help farmers to develop new seeds and fertilisers, Can help patients with better medicine and new treatments -making it affordable, Can help poor children with new technologies for their education, Can develop new clean technologies for power this world thereby bringing down pollution in this world. I got mesmerised by the life stories of Indian Science pioneers like Sir CV Raman, J.C Bose, Srinivasan Ramanujan and Satyedranath Bose. While CV Raman won the Nobel prize in Physics, JC Bose invented the wireless transmission which revolutionised the world. Srinivasan Ramanujan’s mathematical discoveries are still actively researched by scientists all around the word and Satyendra Bose invented BOSON , the god particle . More important, I believe that a scientist can solve many challenges the world is facing right now. In fact, the rapid growth in science and technology will be the key driving force in our progress , making this world safer for our future generations.
I am fully aware that I have to study hard and should do a lot of hard work and dedication to become a scientist. But I am determined to face those challenges. I always pray to god to give me strength and courage and motivation to work hard so that I can make my dreams come true and serve my country.
