There is absolutely no co-relation of certain elements in the world that you feel is a must to make certain things happen.
An example is pursuing higher education in a foreign land. I always felt that there is a certain quality that is a must to be able to face the challenges offered in a distant land, and to be able to cope up with the rigors of a curriculum that is deemed challenging.
But after 9 months and countless encounters with people who constantly amaze me, i have come to the realization that all it takes is a line in the hand, certain planetary positions, a few well placed amulets on certain body parts and some monetary offering to a few desired idols and behold… u shall attain all that you want.
It is the truth.
