Dear friend This is not a crisis that needs any drastic actions . The problem is that you are forced to run your fathers programme and plan and fulfill his wishes . you are simply executing your fathers agenda ,and become a victim of your fathers projections on you and the others.Iam not criticising or finding fault or influencing you against your father,this is the general trend ,everyone thinks engineering is a prestige issue ,and has the glamour of a career,and it get byou respect and status. This is wrong ,each one of us is born with inborn package of talents,potential,and passion. This is what is to be recognised ,accepted ,and encouraged . you are not allowed to do what interests you and are capable of ,but what does not interest you and for which you have no inclinations . What i suggest is be assertive and talk to your father dont argue or fight,but curteously and respectfully ,discuss your potentials ,interests,weaknesses ,and plans . you can make a honourable career from anything you do ,not just engineer ,because all feel this is the ultimate ,why follow the herd. be what you are .
life is not all about the chair,title,position,authority,power,designation ec but about being happy with what you do ,like to do ,enjoy doing ,and where your heart is ,and where passion fires your creativity and innovativeness. So dont despair, big things take time to get ,you just readjust and be assertive . dont let emotions and sentiments come in the way ,everything will pass away and fall in place ,you just set the intentions right. best of luck
