This Part Of My Life Is Called Struggle!!!

Scientifically the longest day of the year is in June but for us, 22nd feb 2012 was the longest day of our life. By us, I meant me and my wife.

Since the day we moved from Chennai to Pune, we both wanted to live life stress free, kind of liberated with every passing moment as a thing to cherish forever and follow our passion with vigor. We knew playing the game of life as we wanted will not be easy. So our struggle to listen and follow our heart started from Pune.

Struggle:

Alright, the fact is, we both are jobless and with very limited financial resources that may last for a few months from now. Although we our apprehensive about how things will fall in order but this apprehension is mostly overcome with the excitement to start afresh. This everyday excitement is the sole reason that keeps us happy and ticking every second of our life.

Today, one must not stop trying to make a beautiful tomorrow.

Dream:

She always dreamt to be a Software Testing Trainer and open her own Training Center in Pune where she prepare Software Testing Professionals for a better tomorrow and make every individual learn the craft of software testing the right way. Involved in the same profession from 8 years, her dictum is to create awareness and uplift the software testing domain which is still considered a job for the misfit.

As far as I am concerned, I act as a catalyst in making her realize the dream.

It wasn’t possible to do the same while we were in Chennai as we mutually agreed to start this venture from Pune which later turned out to be the main reason for our movement from Chennai. Thus MIND HUNTERS is born!

Personally, I never wanted either of us to lament later in life for procrastinating any decision and professionally, I too needed a change. I always felt exhausted doing the same old mundane work I was involved in from 6 years and I truly needed a pill of excitement to boost my professional graph which was at all time low. So I decided why not search for a better job from Pune in fact. Our parents are very supportive for the decision we made. So my main focus was now to setup a training institute for her and handle all the administration work till I find a suitable job for myself.

It’s now 20 days and the institute is ready with a classroom and a lab. The pamphlets are printed. Now it’s time to advertise. We’ve already spread the name Mind Hunters on internet like a spider’s web. It’s listed now on every second advertising website.

22nd feb 2012, we started advertising using pamphlets. We stood for straight 2 hours on the main gate of MIT (Maharashtra Institute of Technology) College, Pune, distributing pamphlets to every student leaving the premises for the day. We’ve never done this before and were also heartbroken to see students fling leaflets in air. I know it’s not easy but there’s no looking back for either of us. We may be beaten money-wise but the spirits are high to not just survive but do well in years to come. Patience is virtue after all.

I know it’s difficult but life is a STRUGGLE every minute!!!

Mind Hunters:

You can check out information about the institute MIND HUNTERS here: www.mindhunters.in

It’s located in Kothrud, Pune and themed on Software Testing Training.

All thoughts & reflections are welcome to help us in improving our webpage and providing tips for better marketing.

Big thanks on behalf of Savita for reading this post.

Have a great week ahead!

  1. I went through the website, its neat. In the last paragraph, take off 'only'. It reads slightly offensive. And try to make the first page shorter and give links to 'courses' from somewhere within the home-page text too. I guess that's your most important landing page.

    I can help you, if you want. I run a professional blog on computer networking & IT technologies called - www.excitingip.com . Its been there for more than two and a half years and it has a good search engine reputation.

    So, why don't you write a guest post on the topic, 'Basics of Software Testing' or any other software testing topic (applicable to general audience) and publish it in my blog? It should only introduce a technology and its benefits. You cannot talk about your testing program in the post.

    I can give you an author bio at the end and link your site from there. Its important to get links as a SEO strategy. And besides, people coming from search engines for a long time from now would click through the link, if they like the article or want to know more details about the same.

    So, think about it and let me know @ (excitingip[at]gmail[dot]com) . Its fine if you don't want to do it at this stage. And all the best to both of you.

    1. thank you Ma'm for the good wishes.

      yes, one must not lose focus and fight till the end. there's no looking back for both of us.

      i remember this song from one of Amitabh's movie "khuddar"

      "unche neeche raaste,
      aur manzil teri duur.
      raah mein rahi thakk naa jaana,
      hoke tuu majboor"

  21. Hi Rahul,

    Stumbled onto this pretty late, but all the best for your venture.
    I've worked as a R&D Engg. in Test for about 4 years, and I couldn't but agree more with your better half, on her thoughts on testing, and the goal that the both of you are trying to achieve here.

    Hope you guys do really well. Once again, all the best.

      although its not easy to bring that change in people's mindset who till date are stuck with old and orthodox methods and techniques of testing but bit by bit we are trying our level best to be the change and make it happen ..!
