Engineers and India…

“The world is strange but I guess India is even more stranger…”

Its been about 15 years and 3 .5 months since I have been witnessing this majestic nation and its truly majestic people. Here I will depict another ‘MAJESTIC’ variety of Indians called “ENGINEERS”.

“Engineering is fun, it leads to a pathway of Jobs.”- said one. “Hell yeah! especially if you get into an IIT”- said the other. Well I don’t know what misconception has lead to such a far-and-wide rise of Engineers. It has become such a career option that if someone has yet not found his interest then he would become another great Engineer.

Analyzing the number of students giving the IIT-JEE gets me shell shocked looking at the budding engineers. “I do engineering as it has a lot of money” are most of the views.

Amusingly I found out even in my locality every second or third teen is an Engineer and most of my school seniors the same.

Mr. A is a Mechanical Engineer, Mr. B is a Computer Science Engineer and Mr. C is an Electrical Engineer. Now lets look at their jobs:

Mr. A works in a Bank as the manager.

Mr. B is an Indian Revenue Officer.

Mr. C is unemployed and may soon become a bus conductor.

Now, I don’t get the fun which people get by doing Engineering and then going for any random Government job.


P.S. This was just a satirical description. I do not intend to hurt anybody’s feelings. I do respect your views and would love to know about them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
