This post is about two things.
1. My efforts to get the most fucking amazing ringtone ever!
2. The status message of Natansh Verma.
I’m up right now trying to download a video and a video to audio converter as I couldn’t find the mp3 file of the most fucking amazing ringtone ever!
And I noticed Natansh’s gtalk status message, which was a rant against his institute. His institute is my dream institute. Now, I don’t know how much Natansh liked Maths before joining IIT-D and whether or not his 4 years there have changed his opinion of the subject. But I do know that 3 years of Amity have made me loathe science in general and utterly uber-despise Aerospace Engineering in particular. If Natansh’s feelings about Mathematics and Computing have gone the same way, and this is with him being in the best damn college for his course in the country (and if IIT loving lunatics -who’re usually the parents of kids who didn’t get in- have it, the world).
The point is, if Natansh’s feelings towards Math and Comp have been negatively affected by his institute analogous in essence and not quantity, to my feelings about Aerospace, that means that the best advice I can anyone planning to pursue (and trust me, pursue is the right word) their undergraduate degree in India is this: Find out what you love more than anything. Something you’d love to make a career out of. Something you know will not bore you even if you work at it for decades. Find your passion. And in no circumstances, do it as your undergrad degree.
All hail the Indian Education System.
