as this being my first post, a lot of thought was spent in deciding the title of it."DREAMS"- why? partly, bcoz they are a reflection of a person's thoughts and partly because ,they inspire creativity. what did we dream of, before we joined an engg. college?by the term "we" here ,i want to refer to students like me who ,after spending a couple of years in an engineering college, feel digruntled, to say the least,or, rather in plain terms,aimless-just heading nowhere.i may sound pretty pessimistic and my thoughts may be dismissed as a mere rheotric of a loser.but , i can pretty well assure u that this is what not only me but scores of students feel the same a time for certain reasons:
while preparing for entrances ,we were told of engg as a miraculous career option which could bring the best out of us, but what have we done in last two years? at best, succeeded in mugging up whatever is there in syllabi, just a night b4 exams and then forgetting the whole thing after exams.ya,indeed we have become like comps, information once entered is shift+deleted the very nxt day itself.who is responsible for this?partly us, but as a whole the entire blame rests with the age-old boring material required to be studied by us or rather mugged by us, as , the case may be.the emphasis is rather on quantity , rather than on quality.everytime i say this , i am reminded of class of signals and systems in 3rd sem or that of mod theory in my current sem, where faculty made a complete mess of such intetresting subjects.
another major area of concern, which sadly affects students of small clgs like us ,is that of placements.for four years u work hard and spend countless hours trying to understand yhe nuances of electronics but what happens at the end?, u end up getting placed in a software company. isn't that horrible,to say the least.for guys like us , who are in electronics , its chaleble but what abt guys rom mechanical or say, chemical. the whole life then becomes a living hell.sadly, the whole education system becomes a complete farce.and that is when deams are shattered. dreams nurtured throughout whole childhood and fuelled by a desire to achieve something, when someone lands himself in such a predicament from where there is no looking back what is one supposed to do?just stand and stare or..........
