Saroj Ray is a mechanical engineer graduated from NIT Rourkela with an interest towards entrepreneurial success. Setting aside engineering skills, he has great research skills and entrepreneurial abilities that lead him to write an amazing book "Tales of Opportunities in Modern Era"
Saroj Ray does not have a classy background, rather he spent his childhood in a small town in Odisha. His family wasn't financially good enough to spend a handsome life, therefore, Saroj's father got into several businesses to support the family. Due to the insufficient education, his father couldn't find a promising job. Despite the poor financial status and failed businesses, Saroj's father didn't give up on him and let him continue his study. He didn't want his son to suffer the same problems as he did his whole life - all due to the lack of education.
Saroj had a deep interest in science subjects from the start. He always scored the highest marks in subjects like maths and physics. Within no time, Saroj passed the school and college with good grades and easily passed the entrance exam to enter one of the best premier colleges of all time - NIT Rourkela. The hardworking behavior and efficient sense of humor didn't stop him, and he scored a 9.41 CGPA in NIT while securing the second position in his batch. The interviews at NIT started and he clearly passed an interview for a job as a mechanical engineering. This was the first step of Saroj towards success.
However, the glamour was gone as soon as he jumped into the industry. Due to the lack of confidence and several mishaps, he had to change his job. This further drowned his confidence and he faced difficulties while communicating with the people. For the first time in life, he felt defeated. His years of schooling and college education wasn't helping him get past the problems. However, he didn't face the defeat and started working with the only thing he had left - hard work! Soon with a lot of hard work, endless working hours, and pouring passion into the work, he finally reached perfection.
Saroj wanted some more from his life, therefore, he left his job after a year and a half for higher studies. He joined IIT Madras as a research scholar for good. Research work seemed to be his dream job in the start. He had a great start and published many research works in international peer review journals. But after a few years, Saroj was again shattered to the ground. he wasn't getting anywhere rather was cut off from the whole research community. To overcome the never-ending failures, Saroj decided to accomplish his dream and write a book. He discussed with his seniors, found a mentor, and started writing the book.
Saroj had many good friends in every part of his life but he could never become an alpha of the group. In the recent few years, his failures taught him more than his years of education and gave him the confidence to bend the rules and reach the success no matter what. Now, writing a book helped him do that!
Saroj always had a deep interest in reading non-fictional, biography, and entrepreneurial success, and self-help books. Finally, Saroj's dream of writing a book fulfilled with the release of Tales of Opportunities in Modern Era
Becoming a writer helped him express his true self to the world. He said,
"I want to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. I am bold and will never stop chasing after my dreams."
The idea for this book came from his struggle during working in his relevant industry. Saroj had an interesting journey starting from doing exceptionally well in college to struggle in jobs and then going back to academia for research. Saroj's life was nothing less complex than a roller coaster ride. During this time, he faced many problems and struggled a lot to survive in the utmost competition. This book is a summary to share his experience with others and help others to cope with these problems.
Over the years, Saroj has realized that people can end up in difficult situations even after doing everything right for the whole life. For years, people can work passionately for a job they love, and then they can suddenly change their interests for another job. Fortunately, there are endless opportunities in every field of life in the modern era. Saroj believes that - each day gives an opportunity to live a better life.
Despite all the development taken place in recent years, people are still facing the same traditional problems. Saroj explained, "At this stage, you may start doubting your abilities, studies, and passion and assume that it doesn't mean anything at all". This is where most people lose hope. People either start hating their job, lose the job due to lack of interest, or couldn't get the job at all.
In the rapidly growing competition, every industry has become overwhelming. First, the advancement in technology and modern techniques have changed almost every field of life. Secondly, this evolvement only helps people who are passionate enough about their job. In simple words, this book tells the story of how to acquire skills through knowledge-based education, have an innovative career, and use technologies to solve twenty-first-century complications.
The author is excited about the book. This book was originally written to help people utilize their true self and make use of the opportunities to live their dream job. Overall, Saroj enjoys writing and have already started working on his second book.
