It was a warm sunny day in Bangalore, India. 27 degrees in January 2006. It was just perfect. I packed my luggage with some smart clothes, some warm sweaters and a few things to eat. As usual my mother comes by and forces me to carry more food and sweets with me. I say "why do i need food when I can buy it there?". So I ignore the food, pack all the necessary documents along with the admission letter for the MBA degree from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.
I had never been away from my family for longer than 10 days. All of a sudden in a matter of 2 months, I decide to leave them and go to a place 10000 miles away for a year. I was really excited that I am going to a beautiful city. I saw some pictures of Scotland and just fell in love with it.
Little did I know that I was about to have the biggest life changing experience ever.
