ford kharagpur Q&A Review

What's the best thing to ever come out of West Bengal?

Having spent my formative years in and around Calcutta (ya some of us still call it Cal not Kol !) and having spent the last decade or so in various other parts of India I believe I can do justice to this question. Most people here have mentioned the Bengali stalwarts which are well-known in other parts of India and very rightfully so because human capital has indeed been the most sustainable(till date, that is) product that has been exported from Bengal. However, I would also like to mention the educational institutes which went a long way in nurturing and inspiring these people and numerous others like them and more often than not, were the vanguard in their respective fields. The list goes as follows: 1. Presidency College, Calcutta (now Presidency University) Set up in 1817, it is one of the oldest educational institutions of western education in South Asia and arguable the first in India and has given India its first President, two Nobel Laureates, one Oscar winners and stalwarts like Bose, Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Amartya Sen amongst hundreds of other luminaries. 2. IIT Kharagpur Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy (architect of modern Bengal and the then CM of Bengal) persuaded JL Nehru( the then PM) of India to set up an institute of higher learning for post-war Industrial development Of India at the historic Hijli Detention Camp ( British penitentiary for political activists) and thus was formed the first IIT of India in 1951. 3. IIM Calcutta The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) was established as the first national institute for Post-Graduate studies and Research in Management by the Govt. of India in November 1961 in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Govt. of West Bengal, The Ford Foundation and Indian industry. 4. Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta Set up by the polymath P.C. Mahalanobis as a Statistical Laboratory in Presidency College, Kolkata set up by Mahalanobis, who worked in the Physics Department of the college in 1920s, it is an Institute of national importance. Established in 1931, this public university of India is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions focused on statistics, and its early reputation led it to being adopted as a model for the first US institute of Statistics set up at the Research Triangle, North Carolina by Gertrude Mary Cox. 5. Bengal Engineering and Science University Bengal Engineering and Science University owes its origin to the erstwhile Bengal Engineering College. Prompted by the idea of meeting the requirement for trained engineering personnel for the Public Works Department, the Council of Education, Bengal, decided to open Civil Engineering classes and a Professorship in Civil Engineering. A college was established on 24 November 1856 named Calcutta Civil Engineering College, training personnel for the Public Works Department, and located at the Writer's Building, Howrah. This was the second/third engineering college in India. 6. Calcutta Medical College Established 1835 as Medical College, Bengal in Kolkata, India as the first college of European medicine in Asia. Many luminaries of Calcutta including Dwarkanath Tagore and Ram Comul Sen enthusiastically supported medical education at the CMC by instituting scholarships and prizes for brilliant students. 7. Jadavpur University Set up in 1955 in Calcutta, it is the only state university to beat even some of the IITs and needless to say NITs in terms of research output (mind you, I did not say placements !) and ranks in the Top 5-10 in India consistently in terms of research output. To do justice to the education system of Bengal one should also mention the likes of Don Boscos, South Points and La Martinieres of the World,... errr... Calcutta, but there are are just too many good schools in Calcutta (compared to any other Indian city) to list them down here !

How much do you really know about Arvind Kejriwal?

Arvind Kejriwal (born 16 August 1968) is an Indian politician and a former bureaucrat who is the current and 7th Chief Minister of Delhi since February 2015. He was also the Chief Minister of Delhi from December 2013 to February 2014, stepping down after 49 days of assuming power. Currently, he is the national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party, which won the 2015 Delhi Assembly elections with a historic majority, obtaining 67 out of 70 assembly seats. In 2006, Kejriwal was awarded the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Emergent Leadership in recognition of his involvement in the grassroots level movement Parivartan using right to information legislation in a campaign against corruption. The same year, after resigning from Government service, he donated his Magsaysay award money as a corpus fund to found the Public Cause Research Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO). Before joining politics, Kejriwal had worked in the Indian Revenue Service as a Joint Commissioner of Income Tax in New Delhi. Kejriwal is a graduate in Mechanical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur. In 2012, he launched the Aam Aadmi Party, which won in the 2013 Delhi Legislative Assembly election. Following the election, he took office as the Chief Minister of Delhi on 28 December 2013. He resigned 49 days later, on 14 February 2014, stating he did so because of his minority government's inability to pass his proposed anti-corruption legislation due to a lack of support from other political parties. On 14 February 2015, he was sworn in as Chief Minister for a second term after his party's victory in the Delhi Legislative Assembly election Arvind Kejriwal was born in an upper middle-class educated Agrawal family in Siwani, Bhiwani district, Haryana on 16 August 1968, the first of the three children of Gobind Ram Kejriwal and Gita Devi. His father was an electrical engineer who graduated from the Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. Kejriwal spent most of his childhood in north Indian towns such as Sonipat, Ghaziabad and Hisar. He was educated at Campus School in Hisar and at a Christian missionary Holy Child School at Sonipat.In 1985, he took the IIT-JEE exam and scored All India Rank (AIR) of 563. He graduated from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, majoring in Mechanical engineering. He joined Tata Steel in 1989 and was posted in Jamshedpur. Kejriwal resigned in 1992, having taken leave of absence to study for the Civil Services Examination. He spent some time in Calcutta (present-day Kolkata), where he met Mother Teresa, and volunteered with The Missionaries of Charity and at the Ramakrishna Mission in North-East India and at Nehru Yuva Kendra. Career Arvind Kejriwal joined the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) as an Assistant Commissioner of Income Tax in 1995, after qualifying through the Civil Services Examination. In November 2000, he was granted two years' paid leave to pursue higher education on condition that upon resuming his work he would not resign from the Service for at least three years. Failure to abide by that condition would require him to repay the salary given during the leave period. He rejoined in November 2002. According to Kejriwal, he was not given any posting for almost a year, and kept getting his salary without doing any work; so, after 18 months, he applied for leave without pay. For the next 18 months, Kejriwal was on sanctioned unpaid leave. In February 2006, he resigned from his position as Joint Commissioner of Income Tax in New Delhi. The Government of India claimed that Kejriwal had violated his original agreement by not working for three years. Kejriwal said that his 18 months of work and 18 months of unpaid absence amounted to the stipulated three-year period during which he could not resign and that this was an attempt to malign him due to his involvement with the Indian anti-corruption movement. The dispute ran for several years until, in 2011, it was resolved when he paid his way out of the Service with the help of loans from friends. Kejriwal paid ₹ 927,787 as dues, but stated that this should not be considered as an admission of fault. After joining politics, Kejriwal claimed in 2013 that he had chosen public service over earning crores as an Income Tax Commissioner. This led to a controversy, with the IRS association pointing out that he has never been promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Income Tax. Anti-corruption activism Parivartan and Kabira In December 1999, while still in service with the Income Tax Department, Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and others found a movement named Parivartan (which means "change"), in the Sundar Nagar area of Delhi. A month later, in January 2000, Kejriwal took a sabbatical from work to focus on Parivartan. Parivartan addressed citizens' grievances related to Public Distribution System (PDS), public works, social welfare schemes, income tax and electricity. It was not a registered NGO - it ran on individual donations, and was characterised as a jan andolan ("people's movement") by its members. Later, in 2005, Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia launched Kabir, a registered NGO named after the medieval philosopher Kabir. Like Parivartan, Kabir was also focused on RTI and participatory governance. However, unlike Parivartan, it accepted institutional donations. According to Kejriwal, Kabir was mainly run by Sisodia. In 2000, Parivartan filed a public interest litigation (PIL) demanding transparency in public dealings of the Income Tax department, and also organised a satyagraha outside the Chief Commissioner's office. Kejriwal and other activists also stationed themselves outside the electricity department, asking visitors not to pay bribes and offered to help them in getting In 2001, the Delhi government enacted a state-level Right To Information (RTI) Act, which allowed the citizens to access government records for a small fee. Parivartan used RTI to help people get their work done in government departments without paying a bribe. In 2002, the group obtained official reports on 68 public works projects in the area, and performed a community-led audit to expose misappropriations worth ₹ 7 million in 64 of the projects. On 14 December 2002, Parivartan organised a jan sunvai (public hearing), in which the citizens held public officials and leaders accountable for the lack of development in their locality. In 2003 (and again in 2008), Parivartan exposed a PDS scam, in which ration shop dealers were siphoning off subsidised foodgrains in collusion with civic officials. In 2004, Parivartan used RTI applications to access communication between government agencies and the World Bank, regarding a project for privatisation of water supply. Kejriwal and other activists questioned the huge expenditure on the project, and argued that it would hike water tariffs ten-fold, thus effectively cutting off the water supply to the city's poor. The project was stalled as a result of Parivartan's activism. Another campaign by Parivartan led to a court order that required private schools, which had received public land at discounted prices, to admit more than 700 poor kids without fee. Along with other social activists like Anna Hazare, Aruna Roy and Shekhar Singh, Kejriwal came to be recognised as an important contributor to the campaign for a national-level Right to Information Act (enacted in 2005). He resigned from his job in February 2006, and later that year, he was given the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Emergent Leadership, for his involvement with Parivartan. The award recognised him for activating the RTI movement at the grassroots, and empowering New Delhi's poor citizens to fight corruption. By 2012, Parivartan was largely inactive. Sundar Nagri, where the movement was concentrated, suffered from irregular water supply, unreliable PDS system and poorly done public works. Calling it "ephemeral and delusionary in nature", Kejriwal noted that Parivartan's success was limited, and the changes brought by it did not last long. Public Cause Research Foundation In December 2006, Kejriwal established the Public Cause Research Foundation in December 2006, together with Manish Sisodia and Abhinandan Sekhri. He donated his Ramon Magsaysay Award prize money as a seed fund. Besides the three founders, Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi served as the Foundation's trustees. This new body paid the employees of Parivartan. Kejriwal used the RTI Act in corruption cases in many government departments including the Income Tax Department, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, the Public Distribution System and the Delhi Electricity Board. Jan Lokpal movement In 2010, Kejriwal protested against corruption in the Commonwealth Games. He argued that the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) did not have any powers to take any action against the guilty, while CBI was incapable of launching an unbiased investigation against the ministers who controlled it. He advocated appointment of public ombudsman - Lokpal at the Centre and Lokayuktas in states. In 2011, Kejriwal joined several other activists, including Anna Hazare and Kiran Bedi, to form the India Against Corruption (IAC) group. The IAC demanded enactment of the Jan Lokpal Bill, which would result in a strong ombudsman. The campaign evolved into the 2011 Indian anti-corruption movement. In response to the campaign, the government's advisory body - the National Advisory Council - drafted a Lokpal Bill. However, the NAC's Bill was criticised by Kejriwal and other activists on the grounds that it did not have enough powers to take action against the prime minister, other corrupt officeholders and the judiciary. The activists also criticised the procedure for selection of Lokpal, the transparency clauses and the proposal to disallow the Lokpal from taking cognisance of public grievances. Amid continuing protests, the Government constituted a committee to Draft a Jan Lokpal Bill. Kejriwal was one of the civil society representative members of this committee. However, he alleged that the IAC activists had an unequal position in the committee, and the government appointees kept ignoring their recommendations. The Government argued that the activists could not be allowed to blackmail the elected representatives through protests. Kejriwal retorted that democratically elected representatives could not be allowed to function like dictators, and asked for a public debate on the contentious issues. The IAC activists intensified their protests, and Anna Hazare organised a hunger strike. Kejriwal and other activists were arrested for defying a police directive to give a written undertaking that they will not go to JP Park. Kejriwal attacked the government on this and said there was a need for a debate over police power to detain and release people at will. In August 2011, a settlement was reached between the Government and the activists. Besides the government, the Jan Lokpal movement was also criticised by some citizens as 'undemocratic' on the grounds that the ombudsman had powers over elected representatives. Arundhati Roy claimed that the movement was not a people's movement; instead, it was funded by foreigners to influence policy making in India. She pointed out that the Ford Foundation had funded the Emergent Leadership category of the Ramon Magsaysay Award, and also donated $397,000 to Kejriwal's NGO Kabir. Both Kejriwal and Ford Foundation termed the allegations as baseless, stating that the donations were made to support the RTI campaigns. Besides, several other Indian organisations had also received grants from the Ford Foundation. Kejriwal also denied the allegations that the movement was a plot against the ruling Congress by the RSS, or that it was an upper-caste conspiracy against the Dalits.By January 2012, the Government had backtracked on its promise to implement a strong Jan Lokpal, resulting in another series of protests from Kejriwal and his fellow activists. These protests attracted lower participation compared to the 2011 protests.By mid-2012, Kejriwal had replaced Anna Hazare as the face of the remaining protestors. In 2015 during the second term of AAP government in Delhi the Jan Lokpal Bill was passed by the assembly awaiting presidents approval Political views Kejriwal discussed his views on corruption and the state of the Indian democracy in his book Swaraj. He advocates for a decentralisation of government and the involvement of the panchayat in local decisions and budgets. He claims that foreign multinational corporations have too much power in the decision making process of the central government and that the politicians at the Centre are not being held accountable for their actions and inaction after their election. Personal life In 1995, Arvind married Sunita, a 1993-batch IRS officer. She took voluntary retirement in 2016 as Commissioner of Income Tax in the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal. The couple have a daughter named Harshita, and a son named Pulkit. Kejriwal is a vegetarian and has been practising the Vipassanā meditation technique for many years. He is diabetic. . In 2016, Kejriwal underwent a surgery for his persistent cough problem. Awards and recognitions 2004: Ashoka Fellow, Civic Engagement 2005: Satyendra K.

Which is better IIT or IIIT?

Let's play a game. Choose between the two options. Narendra modi or Rahul Gandhi. (PM) Aishwarya Rai Bacchan or Neha dhupia.(Favorite actress) Ayesha Takia or Sonam Kapoor.(You know about it) Adidas or Adibas.(The real one). Tea or coffee.(Your energy booster) Toyota Fortuner or Ford Endeavour. (SUV) Nikon or Canon.(DSLR) Mayawati or Akhilesh Yadav.(CM) If you chose first option in choices 1–4 you know about the Real essence of them , they are superior in their respective categories and the latter ones don't stand a chance against them. If you chose second option in choices 5–7 , you know the value of both of them. People are mad for both, but in the end what matters to you is how you wanted the things in your life . It's like you don't think the former things would work for you like you know people are crazy about Tea but you chose coffee because its about the taste and the aroma that matters to you. If you are stuck in the option 8 , you are very well aware of the fact that both of the things won't work for you and you're willing to opt NOTA over them. Coming to your differentiation over IIT or IIIT , sometimes you know it's worthless comparing the two of them. The old IITs like IIT Bombay, Delhi , Kharagpur, Roorkee, BHU, Madras etc. They stand a class apart from the newly IIITs as well as from many old ones. But when you'll relate to option 5–7 it's about your specifications like your passion towards a particular branch , the requirements for your career and interests in the different fields. It's like you're offered a lower branch in old IITs but you have interest in CSE which you are offered in IIIT Hyderabad , irrespective of the IIT you'll choose IIITH over anything because it's about your passion. Coming to the last option you're stuck between both of them as neither you're offered a good IIT nor an IIIT you still have the NOTA option( BITS, NITs and other GFTIs according to your options). PS- I still wonder why in the politics people didn't chose the NOTA option , it's better than choosing the best of the worst.( No relation with the question)

Why does BITS Pilani follow zero attendance?

Because BITS wanted to follow only one role model and perfect recipe -MIT. ,It was a part of bigger plan by MIT. In the series of research papers about the impact of MIT on the world, of which one is - ,http://www.cse.iitd.ernet.in/~arindamp/files/MIT.pdf, (partial document retrieved. Official documents in print can be found in respective libraries on request). IIT kanpur was mentored in its initial years by a team (the team was sarcastically called The Wasted Fleet as explained later) of several TOP US universities (Caltech, CMU, Case Institute, Berkeley, Purdue, OhioState, Michigan, and Princeton) of which MIT was leader. The Ford foundation, The Fleet and Government of India invested millions of USD at that time creating the best of the curriculum, infrastructure, faculty training and everything in between(Kanpur Indo-American Program). The board of directors at that time also took collective decision and unanimous vote to look at attendance as primordial tradition of Guru, Gurukul and Sishsya to be preserved and The Fleet accepted as there was no downside to it especially in its initial years. They thought changes may later be brought by IIT's administration later. Beside there was huge amounts of public money involved, that no one could assert their individual opinion on any matter let alone on a small thing called attendance or charter of leave allowance for faculty. The Fleet was so powerful that IIT kanpur earned a saying that '',When the body enters IIT kanpur, the soul enters MIT'' ,. The intention of that was IIT Kanpur students always dominated MIT just after their graduation for either research or further prospects. No one cared of their country or their Big brother's motto -,Dedicated to the service of nation."- IIT Kharagpur “Dedicated to the Service of the Nation” ,led to the inevitable question,, "Which nation?". ,MIT's own mission to establish an engineering excellence to bring about another America with strong entrepreneurial foothold also failed due to same reason. That is why its called The Wasted Fleet. In fact, after gaining such high level of skills and at the same time the Nehruvian-Mahalanobis model dwindling (loosely based on socialistic approach), The IIT KGP feared allowing foreign placements until mid 2000s .So it restricted. But just after that, an explosive levels of brain drain did occur. Same failure occurred in the Turkey's Institute MIT agreed to mentor. The founder and director Ghanshyam Birla felt he needed no bureaucratic/majority decision making among their members because it was not government money but his. He saw through the failures IIT- K went and rationalized many decisions. He also felt too many cooks spoil the dish and went on for blindly getting mentored by only one big brother- MIT. It took a decade of convincing MIT. Our Birla's intention was to leave a legecy in his hometown only. MIT's team of ~10 members saw through the opportunity Pilani possessed (after getting frustrated though) that - whatever is in Pilani is in BITS pilani. So even after attendance is removed, where else would you go to get distracted to? Cinema Hall or Shopping Mall? The grand solution of past failure - Birla didn't have a fraction of what IITs got showered with money. Ford foundation dried and MIT looked at second attempt with skepticism before coming. Still, Birla gave ,all of his industries, to train as compulsory internships and that is how Practise School system was invented after a little brainstorming . Slowly everyone other than Birlas also started pouring in linkages of industries. BITSians gained domestic reputation of work ethics,knowledge and capabilities such as smartness and hardwork. Tatas praised. Home entrepreneurs and business class all over India loved us. Soon we became someone whom business leaders would come take advice in both technical and ,managerial ,matters. This is because MIT learned that introducing advanced and high level specialized narrow curriculum at IIT-K would actually have its own shortcoming as side-effects. MIT introduced Humanities department and self inclusive non-dependable ,enjoyable, ,campus culture, as part of well rounded personality development. This was essentially viewed as survival skill to reign in businesses and made BITSians attend classes. At this point Attendance monitoring was removed as part of BITS wanting to blindly follow MIT's tradition of having no attendance rule. Compulsory internships across all over India made people to engage in technical subjects anyway. Humanities brought about several charming skills businesses needed, as a result attendance in humanities courses was high too. A perfect recipe was created with PUFF! mission of MIT -,successful,. GDP increase had an arsenal of BITSian brain power . Enough BITSian Entrepreneurs sprouted. Advanced technologies were trained to workforce. Observe the list to see that late 1960-late 1980s was golden era for BITSians - ,List of BITS alumni, MIT came back home happily weeping after failing itself two times. Our First year obscure and insanely costly book in MATHS -II about complex variables is by MIT because at that time that same faculty who is the author used to teach at BITS Pilani. Same is the case with the Mechanics and Vibrations and Waves Texts of MeOW course. It came down as tradition like attendance had its tradition. One small characteristic you will find common to both IIT-K and BITS- Pilani. MIT recommended gliders club as part of aeronautical engineering training. Though one's is bleeding edge and the other's is raking rust.

Why is Kharagpur underdeveloped despite having an IIT in the town?

I don't think kharagpur is underdeveloped it's just untidy. The IIT campus at Kharagpur is one of the well maintianed campuses across india. But when you come out you start to feel the diferrence. Development of a place will happen only when you bring in more industries and Kharagpur is already an industrial town. You have Siemens, Tata Hitachi, Tata Metalics, BASF to name a few. Also there is an Airbase adjacent to kharagpur- ,Kalaikunda,. There is a bigger picture to look at while taking about the development of cities in West Bengal. Tata Nano project at singur Kolkata and howrah once housed many industries (some of them have closed the business or are making losses - For example hindustan motors ) but after independence it was neglected in terms of industrial development. Ratan Tata thought if we could start (the most talked about project in the world- Tata Nano) the plant then may be the state could attract more investemnts and bring in employement opportunities to the people. But as it turned out people revolted and the plant was shifted to Gujarat. Look at Gujarat after Tata Nano, it was the turning point in the industrial development of the state. Though Nano could not meet the hype as expected it attracted many more manufacturing companies to the state (Suzuki, Ford). Look at Howrah the twin city of Kolkata, People who have visited the railway station would tell you how unitdy it is. It's not the only case of howrah any town in West Bengal you would find it in similar condition. We cannot blame the government, and atleast not the people of the state. ​ The population density of West Bengal is among the highest in the country, which means there are more people on a unit land when compared to other states. People from far off places travel to the nearby industrial hubs for work. The distance between kharagpur and howrah is 120 km and believe me people (daily labours) travel to howrah from places as far as kharagpur daily, and these are all local trains i am talking about (West Bengal has one of the robust railway network in the country). Try finding a seat on a local train leaving howrah after 4:30 pm, it's impossible. And all these labourers are uneducated and lack civic sense which result in situations like these and make the city untidy. ​ Unlike peopke in cities like Bengaluru, Hyderabad (where development happened due to the IT revolution) there are lot more people dependent on physical work. You can still see human carts plying in kolkata. ​ The only solution to this is the govt. has to bulid more industrial cities on the lines of jamshedpur which would provide employment to the people and ultimately bring down the number of people dependent on daily labour atleast for the next generation.

Why is that BIT Mesra has not gained as much fame as BITS Pilani though it was setup before BITS, with good infrastructure?

Let's take up an analogy. If you take two internet browsers, ,Netscape Navigator and Google Chrome, (completely ignoring the time frame both of them were developed at). Navigator, as we know, is a classic. It was one of the most heavily used browsers at the time when Microsoft came into existence, but sadly failed to keep up with the fast paced growth of the World Wide Web. Ultimately, it fizzled out and lost its ground. The World Wide Web was an easy access ground especially with Google Chrome introducing ,open source web development, to acknowledge user based interface thus making it user friendly. Now if you compare ,Navigator to BIT Mesra, and ,Chrome to BITS Pilani,, you would understand what's happening here. BIT Mesra IS still one of the premier institutions of the country alongside IIT Kharagpur from the 1950s. The alumni from BIT Mesra from that time have made some impressive strides in their respective sectors. If you didn't know, BIT Mesra had its own admission criteria, but was scrapped due to unethical practices being used in the admission of students. BIT Mesra, however, is similar to Navigator - it hasn't been able to bring changes to the system in a fast paced world with new research to the academic system. BITS Pilani, in fact, has an adaptive system (similar to the open source web development thingy) and hence is justifiable to be compared with Google Chrome. It seems to happen that the motivation of students at BITS Pilani and the quality of education provided at the same is of a better standard than that of BIT Mesra. If you don't believe me, then let's cite a situation; BITS Pilani does ,NOT, state an attendance criteria for students. In layman terms, it means 0% attendance for classes and you can still appear for you mid-terms and end-terms, but the fact is that there are students who still attend classes. Whereas, the attendance criteria at BIT Mesra is a minimum 75%; if you fall sick, you have a medical waiver of 10%, i.e. a minimum attendance criteria of 65%. Thing is, students have to attend classes, even if they don't like it. BITS Pilani's ,USP,? It was established by G. D. Birla in collaboration (thanks to the Ford Foundation) with ,Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA, and hence derives most of its academic program flowcharts according to its partner. This makes academics more interesting and attractive; its like studying in a REAL Ivy League University - in India! BIT Mesra, on the other hand, was established by B. M. Birla and has no collaborative backing as such. BIT Mesra, in very blunt words, has an education system which is suited to a ,rote learning, ,mindset,, more like studying for your boards. BITS Pilani and many other premier institutes in the country, have a more hands on approach - a more ,practical learning environment,. Students in both universities are of top class quality, but it all boils down to the system in both. If a student is asked to give feedback based on his experiences at either university and the amount of learning, he would choose the better of the two. I hope this answers your question.

I couldn't crack JEE advanced. IITs was my only aim. But now I feel too low. My friends who scored lesser than me in JEE Mains got into top NITs because of reservations. This let me down further. I feel like all the hard work I did for 2 years is all a waste now. What do I do now?

YOU MIGHT BE A GODZILLA STILL CHOMPING AT CHICKEN FEED!! Remember you were the only Sperm among 10 million to have made this far. If you understand that then you would have probably understood by now that the story doesn’t end here. If slitting our throat at every setback was the answer then there wouldn’t have been any Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Henry Ford, Azim Premji, Ralph Lauren, Walt Disney, Hiroshi Yamauchi (Nintendo)..& the list goes on (Fitting me somewhere...joking :P ). We cannot gauge our success on the basis of grades or a silly competition which was never meant for us. Lemme give you a brief example of someone who was standing in your shoes 13 years back. Yes that is me and here is a shocking little real story of me as today I get CV’s from IITians, Govt engineering college students, Doctors and other toppers seeking job from me. Yes! That is where the difference exists. Hailing from a mediocre hand to mouth family, I was hardwired to the belief that there was no country for non-IITian or non-Medico. Every day I used to drag my feet to the classes to fulfill the dreams my parents had seen. I was fed up to the ears with Elders dreaming up the war for young men to die in. I was taught ABC with a carrot and stick approach as soon as I uttered my very first word. Why does everybody want a Droid? Why do we live long enough to see the hand that rocked our cradle once bring us the books to grow old? That is it!.. I knew it that one day I would break every rule of that book! While reaching my Intermediate I had completely lost my grip on studies as my Dad was getting transferred from one city to another; with me being thrown to a new school every year to fit in. My falling grades were giving me a clear picture that my IIT dreams were slipping away. But I was firm determined that I won’t give up without a fight. I dedicated my all to it and crafted a fool proof strategy. I did self-study and bagged appreciation from Coaching and teachers for solving all the problems of Maths & Physics by myself; be it Resnik Haiilday, HC Verma or any other. The adrenaline rush ensured the high endurance level and made me push too far into the realms of Numbers and Formulas. I attended the Examination for the so called ‘Kharagpur dreams’ and found the equations pretty easy. Exam was over in a Jiffy and by evening I ran off to compare my performance with the answers posted at coaching, internet newspapers etc. Once I did that then there was not a twitch of the mouth or a brief glimpse of teeth, but a regular smile all over my face to predict my marks on that basis. Very soon various groups formed on the basis of random rank predictions. Those groups often attracted the attention of the parents of those femme fatales who were responsible for the strong arms of those nerds. Often there were conflicts among the members over their overlapping interests in those Lolitas. The issue grew so sensitive that the member receiving extended admiration from them was automatically thrown into the jealousy bin. Time flew away too soon and the Judgment Day had finally arrived. It was tough to get through the night before. The anxiety and peer pressure was so high that my heart was working overtime whole night long. The next day my friend knocked at my door to burst the bubble and end the suspense. “Yes ! you didn’t qualify my friend.” Those are the last lines I remember. Thereafter my whole world came down crashing around me. My mind went into a passive coma and soon I was left behind abandoned actually with no friends around. Even my Girlfriend broke up with me; Friends and relatives had adopted the untouchability policy towards me. The hell broke loose at my home that day and soon it became a way of life gradually. Every evening I was made to survive the success story of some Mr.Sharma or Agrawal’s son ( ha ha ! You know the drill). That does it! I had had enough of that crap. Every situation appeared so trying. Finally I had made up my mind to give up the ghost. One night, without giving any other thought I went to the bathroom and put a gun in my mouth; I was about to get ‘trigger happy’, but Lo and behold, I looked at myself in the mirror and there was an angry young teenager in a rather funny looking pose. Lolz! I burst into laughter as it reminded me of what I used to call as “my gun”. I didn’t take another second to pull out that gun from my mouth thereafter. In fact it was a wakeup call from the dream which others had fabricated on me. It is often late when you realize that it was all fools paradise in which you were waltzing around. The vigor of life overrides all odds. The new vantage point familiarized me of some unfinished business to knock off my bucket list. I was all set, I told everybody that I don’t need a job anymore; I would be providing jobs instead. People thought that I was losing my grip on reality and even I doubted my sanity at times (Lol). Finally success lost its way and came knocking at my door. In my case it came as a result of tough grind I had inculcated gradually, to fill in the social gaps people had left behind. I explored my natural inclination after studies and soon opened a college, then another and another. Now I own group of colleges. Those who looked down upon me once now were coming back to me seeking jobs. It was my turn now to turn down the friend request on Facebook of those who once had turned me down. Karma is a bitch! It is in fact discouraging to find that people now offer the chauffeurs a better pay than newbie engineers or number crunchers. You know why? Because there are millions of unemployed doctors, engineers, lawyers and on the flipside there are only handful of chauffeurs. The chauffeurs and uneducated masses are now enjoying a better social status as the moment they dislike our behavior they have a new warm hearted employer waiting for them. Ironic, isn’t it? What is more baffling is that during Medieval times practicing Medicine or Engineering was considered witchcraft and practitioners were publically executed (Lol). So the psychology of public is kind of twisted which adheres to the social conformity; what they disapprove today is what they yearn tomorrow. Statistics now reveal that those ancient beliefs regarding career have corroded over time. There are millions of other Job opportunities with better prospects now. My personal advice to all is to start following your rational dream. Always remember simplicity and innovation go hand in hand with success. So kick start your imaginations and remember that no profession propelled by healthy intention is bad. Get to know your taste before chomping at the food others serve you. Who knows? You might be a Godzilla still chomping at chicken feed.

Should I go to Sait to learn mechanical?

Mechanical Engineering is one of the most fascinating branches in field of Engineering and Technology. This celebrated field of higher study has for an evergreen demand and scope in job placements as well as research work. Mechanical Engineers have good graduate prospects In a notoriously tough graduate job market it’s fair to say that degree-level engineers have an edge. Engineers build societies and, mechanical engineers specifically, apply fundamental maths and physics laws to create and build mechanical devices we use every day. So it’s no surprise to see that mechanical engineer students enjoy particularly good graduate prospects. The vast majority of mechanical engineers end up in professional-level employment or postgraduate study within six months of graduating. There, is wide variety of opportunities in Mechanical field, starting from basics of Engineering Drawings to represent images of objects formally, to designing highly complex Robots and industrial application of automated or non-automated mechanical systems to ease production of a certain product. Personally, I like computer applications, and am quite enthusiastic about Robotics. I, thus, followed Mechanical Engineering and want to orient my attention on building robots while studying Computer-Integrated-Manufacturing; that is a dual application of coding and mechanical ideas. Apart from interest, Mechanical Engineering has a wide scope for jobs. Giant companies like Thermax, L&T, Godrej, TATA Group, Kirloskar, Mercedes, Ford recruit Mechanical Engineers with high annual packages and interesting work in designing and manufacturing Aerospace parts, Automobiles, Compressors, Valves, Pumps, Agricultural Products, Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and much more. Looking back into the past, you can find many successful Mechanical Engineers who have left their impressions permanent in our daily life styles. The well-known personality, Leonardo da Vinci, had remarkable contribution to this field in the late 1400s and early 1500s. His designs of flying machines, hydraulic systems and architecture are remarkable pieces of true mechanical engineering ideas. The famous James Watt, inventor of the steam engine and the extraordinary Nicholas Tesla for his significant contributions. The name of George Stephenson, Father of Railways, is unforgettable. Kumar Bhattacharya from IIT Kharagpur has been renowned all over the globe for his great work. Mechanical demands sincere dedication and hard work. You will need to study and ,practice a lot, and let the concepts seep deep. There could just be another name among the famous Mechanical Engineers – you.
