    Is tenses used are correct?

    I have been working for two years.
    Got a bike and a girlfriend.
    An MBA from the best institute in Mumbai.
    And now I am going abroad

    #1 is correct

    #2 is missing a subject

    #3 is missing a verb

    #4 is a dependent clause - remove the "and" and it will become a correct sentence.

    I thought it was a quatrain. If that's the case, no verbs are required.
