A person prospers in one's career provided:
a) He/she as a good qualification
b) He/she completes his/her MBA from a reputed institute
c) Immediately after an MBA, he/she gets a chance to work under a good boss
d) He/she gets a chance to implement what he/she had learned during the MBA course
In your case out of the four criteria that I have given above, which are applicable to you that you know best. Moreover, your grouse has resulted because of the comparison with your college mates. But then uneven career growth is common everywhere. Even IITians do not grow uniformly. Against this backdrop what needs to be remembered is the measurement against the entire career span which lasts till mid-fifties. Therefore, don't get disappointed because your chickens are still hatching whereas others have started counting them too!
One of the reasons why you have been lagging behind could be because of your career break because of medical reasons. But then nothing can be done on it as such. That was your fate!
You may do a course in HR but then these extra courses are useful provided you get a chance to implement the learning. Therefore, have a look at the company where you have got a chance to work. Do they give autonomy to implement the new HR practices? Secondly, the average MBA course is more than sufficient to implement HR practices.
To plan a career, I recommend you reading a famous book titled Catalyst by Chandramouli Venkatesan. Take a decision of doing any course or otherwise after reading this book. The price of the book has come down and it costs just Rs 131 on Amazon. You may click here to go to that webpage.
