Well I am definitely not a topper . But, I listen to this:
I will start from a b'tful line-
"It takes Longer to built a palace than to Built a House"
Struggling with loneliness and feeling alone isn't your enemies, they are just making you Strong and if are able to overcome same you will steal the show.
First of all, It's not important or necessary to be left out from world and just study. Actually Why toppers make themselves left alone is just reason-
"After Sometime they just started enjoying what they are Doing" Because they know the "WORTH OF GATE" which take them to another level if they prepared well. Also, they don't want to pressurize themselves they usually spend time with their family, But again only one thing is always in their mind to get a good rank in GATE. They never thought the consequences of Failure Because they believe in themselves and their Hard Work which they are Doing.
May be your friend got a job in Infosys or wipro or whatever and you Supoose you Didn't make it, What now?
Ranker- take it as a positive way and think that may be God wants to give me GATE again and get a good rank. They start preparing and forgetting about that job wala friend because that friend will not put bread into his house at the end of the Day.
Loser- Give Excuses , Blames others Blames his Luck and finally end up destroying himselves.
Partying is necessary but for a Reason, if you a good position then party with your Family. Noone stops you.
Conclusion- disconnecting from everything isn't necessary but if your interest develops towards GATE subjects , you yourselves leave all this and get down to work early morning, keeping in Mind the Fresher parties at IIT Or IISC and ofc the placements which is much high in domain than your wipro wala dost.
