Dr. Vishwas Kumar Sharma, popularly known as Kumar Vishwas is not a regular celebrity but has a quite an interesting story. Born in Gaur Brahmin family in Ghaziabad, he left his engineering to pursue masters and Ph.D. in Hindi literature and went on to become a poet.
Let us see why and how did he leave Engineering in the middle in his own words —
“It was a tough decision to quit engineering. But, I was not made for machines. So, if I would have continued with engineering, I would have become a below average technocrat. When asked what would I achieve in life by becoming a poet, my only reply was that I would earn enough to have a shelter and food at least. That would be enough for me if I can continue with my poetry. Who knew at that time that I would be paid 10 lac per night performance one day.”
