My dad and mom really wanted me to come back as an engineer and work for the Tatas and settle there (Jamshedpur). But I knew early on in my life that I did not know what I was going to become, but I knew I did not want to live a routine life living in Jamshedpur and doing the same thing for 30 consecutive years. the father did so easily. They (his parents) were upset, in fact my dad made me cry. And I remember a line saying, “I wonder what I did wrong to you.”
