As you young adults prepare for your board exams, attend tuitions, read through a million sites looking for career guidance and tips to ace entrance exams, don?t you think about the simpler times? The times, growing up when the answer to, "What do you want to become when you grow up?", Came as easily, like a smile. It was a fantastic time when you could dream of being an astronaut or a postman in the same night. A time when you wished you could cook or play hopscotch for a living. While some of you stuck to one profession, the more adventurous ones changed their plans on a daily basis.

And then, you grew up. Peer pressure, parental expectation and this mighty competitive world have made the process of selecting the perfect career quite stressful. While some of you know it in your heart that being a doctor, a lawyer or an engineer is perfect for you, there are a lot of undecided souls out there.
