In other words you are into this profession because your parents or your elders wanted this for you.  Peer Pressure, Parent Pressure will force you to choose a path that was never your choice. I don’t say that the Path they have chosen for us is not Right.
One of my Friend Rajesh, a software Engineer earning a handsome salary. Today Rajesh is in Software Profession not because he aspired; it was because his dad wanted him to become a software engineer. I know Rajesh always had the zeal to become photographer. He always liked capturing beautiful things in his Nikkon Camera.
