"Sign kyun nahin kiya exam copy pe."
"Sir, wo bhul gaya tha."
"Aise kaise chalega. Aap jaante hain aapne ye kitni badi galti kr di hai. Aapke wajah se mujhe kitni badi pareshaani ho gyi."
"Sir, galti se bhul gaye the ..."
"Nahin .. aap bataiye itni badi galti ki kya saza di jaye. Abhi minus 10 number kr denge.Hum khud hi nahin chahte aap bachon ki lab exam mein back aa jaye ... Lekin aap hum mazboor kr dete hain .. Abhi poora saal repeat krna pad jayega !! "

"Accha bahar wait kijeye.... "

After wasting 15 mins .. "Accha ye lijye .. Ayainda se mistake karenge to phirr hum aapko bacha nahin payenge "


Scenario: A typical undergraduate technical college in Uttar Pradesh. Yeah North India.

So you thought that teachers are builders of nation .. Blah ..Blah.. More of that moral science book blah ..
Well, at least I thought that the philosophy of 'Khud khao Khaane do' can be at least expected. Remember the RTO guys. But no sir no.You can't even expect this much from these babus in form of teachers, lecturers, professors who have entered this education field thanks to the corrupted system. And as we see a nation wide rise in corruption, slowly and steadily, I think it is securing its foothold in education as well. Education industry, to be precise.

We study, we learn, we work hard. Yet, you cannot escape the babu mentality. I think primary education hasn't seen much of it (thank God !). But undergraduate and graduate level is totally plagiarized.And technical education has gone to the heights of conning. Freekill. Left, right and center. You loot wherever your eyes land. Just put up a glamorized advertisement showing spectacled boys on computers/laptops and girls in traditional salwaar kameez carrying a pile of books !

I know the system is corrupt, unemployment is rising, etc etc. But can't you expect this much sincerity from these so called Lecturers-Professors who have negligible knowledge. I am not challenging your knowledge level. No, I don't want to. But can't these teacher-cum-actors do something worthwhile in life. No one expects anything but can't they mind their own business and let others do their's ?

Sadly, situation is grave here. Babugiri is a passe'. Gundagardi is the latest trend !

7 sequences from '3 idiots' that every engineer should take inspiration from

What proved to be a huge Bollywood blockbuster flick has also proved to be a must-watch-movie for budding engineers across the country.3-idiots besides being a superb entertainer also unraveled the many frailties in Indian education system implemented for engineering. Here are 7 sequences of my choice which are bound to inspire if you miss them in your studies !!

1. Relate to real world while studying
Most of the students while pursuing their engineering studies, especially in Indian education system, forget that they are studying most of the concepts that are already in use in outside world.It would always help you to become an efficient and skillful as a person if you spare a thought for that real world implementation.
In the scene where the professor asks Rancho to describe ‘Machine’ he simply starts by quoting the example of his pants’ zip. Funny, but notice how quickly he has identified which objects can be classified as ‘machine’.

2. Inquisitiveness helps
Remember the scene where Rancho asks Virus about the use of specially invented costly pen instead of a normal pencil which can also write in zero gravity. His idea to use pencil was wrong as latter told by Virus quoting the right reason.Although Rancho was wrong yet it took virus some time to actually find out the reason.

Always try to challenge a law, theory or a hypothesis. Don’t try to mug without realizing the actual value of the concept you have just studied. This will not only help you to absorb the concept but also to know where and when it can be applied. Who knows, maybe you can come up with something better.

3. Try to gain as much practical knowledge as possible

During the course period, students often ignore the practical nature of engineering.In the movie ,Farhan narrates how Rancho carried a screwdriver with him everywhere to study and conduct all types of experiments on the surrounding appliances, machines etc. Experimentation is the heart & soul of all scientific studies.

4. Always be prepared to take inspiration from other fields

There are times that something just out of your field will grab your attention and you wonder how something is not done on parallel lines in your field.Rancho gets a brainstorm about the quadrocopter while dancing !!

5. Come up with original ideas when it matters most
This is hard to expect every time. Yet this is what the world expects from an engineer. No one wants want textbook definition. This is why troubleshooters in any industry will always remain in business no matter what.

Rancho escapes from ragging by making an on – spot way to electrocute his senior.
In the climax scene he listens to the functions and specifications of the suction pump & comes up with his own made-in-few-minutes-from-household-items suction pump.What he actually showed was the real application of his knowledge.

6. Motivation should be by interest and not by greed or fear

When Rancho tells everybody in classroom how madly all students rush on to cram the books and notes, he asked everyone whether any of them had thought that they were going to learn something new that day. Indeed this child-like curiosity was what took him to pinnacle. Or in B.Tech lingo – he was interested in concept not in placement.

In fact Rancho also tells his friend Raju that he should stop living in fear of 'bad grades stopping him to get a decent job'.

7. Aal Izz Well !!

Unofficial mantra to hum along when in deep trouble. Fool your heart and convince your brain. And yeah, Rancho was right, you will need it a lot !

Hi to all readers. First blog first post, this is my first plunge into the world of blogging.

Though I was always passionate about writing, yet this is the first time I can voice my opinions through a blog. Big thanks to friends and family who are always there to support & encourage.

Though I admit it will lack professional look in many places, I request all to let it pass for a first timer.

What this will be all about

First things first; my write-ups will be comments, opinions or information.

Though I can’t be sure but the articles and post will be largely focused on

the tech and geeky stuff about computers, electronics, etc in India.(Shame on

you if you haven't guessed it till now by the URL :P)

Anyways it is just a theme or epicenter. Certainly not the only topic for me on this blog.

But don't expect procedures, technical help or hacks :P

Why should you care

Good question. For the readers out there in India, most of you must have experienced some common situations in one point of their life or other.

Share. Learn. Become nostalgic. Above all, enjoy !!!

For other readers around the world, this can be an insight into the 21st century Indian techies.

Opinions and suggestions

I would love to hear opinions and replies on the blog. Just refrain from using abusive or gross language.

Any suggestions about the blog can also be mailed on

How to keep track

Best thing I can think of is Twitter.

Follow me @abhaythehero.

Due to my hectic schedule ( B.Tech students will understand ....) expect weekly updates. Or even monthly.

If you want to you can also connect to me via Orkut or Facebook.
