But his parents were not very happy, they had other plans for their child. They wanted him to pursue a law career.

So to make his parents happy, he went to Harvard to study law. But he found himself spending more time on a computer than in class. And that was because He was really happy when he was coding and law was not something that excited him. So it was time for a bold move.
