If you are serious about your exams…are you an ENGINEER? ;)

The word ‘exams’ makes our mind shriek a NOO, it brings us willies and makes us remind of the tensions of studying long portions of the hated chemistry and history textbooks, burning the midnight oil and then putting up all your hard work in a devil called exams where 3 hours go away by lightning speed. School exams were supposed to be those very serious times when we all had one little nerd inside us which used to unceremoniously wake up when the testing times came near. But exams at college have changed our perceptions about these scary tests, it has taught us how to study along with having fun, how to complete an entire 1000 page book the night before the exams and still come out of the class happily shouting, “Pass!”, college has taught us how even these tensed times can be the most memorable and it has taught us to be those tenacious engineers  who if can fight against these huge books and courses on the last days, can fight against almost everything in life. Having recently given a horrendous mid semester exam, I laugh upon it and realize that these phases of my college life are going to be the most memorable ones. 🙂

When the time table gets put up on the block notice board, there accumulates a flock of people around, not to check out when does the exams start and how many days do we have for studying, but to check when do we finally become free and can plan out holidays and outings with friends. There does not exist even an iota of tension till it is the final week before the finals. And when it arrives, even magnetism or vectors become difficult to seep in; you can feel the incipient worry in the air, piles of huge textbooks and reference books start seeming claustrophobic , you feel sleepy all the time, even a wall seems so interesting and the most popular statement becomes, “Oh, I have not even started yet!”. Some of us had a habit to read in the fresh wee hours of the morning while some stretch sleeplessly till late nights to study. But at college, you read both in the morning and at night. There are no options left, passing is mandatory, an IF is too shameful and you start getting nightmares about it.

And when the exams finally arrive, it strikes how tough engineering is and how the fun and truancy all through the year is going to make you pay now. Toppers have their phones ringing all the time. “Can you please tell me the course? “is the hot-shot question everywhere. Entire chapters and sums get explained on whatsapp groups. By the end of the day, everyone is calculating which chapters to leave and what are the most important topics to pass. Stretching sleeplessly in the night has no limits. Calls and messages are frequent even at 4 am. Half of the chapters seem out-of-the-blue and it is puzzling where exactly we were when this was done in class? Coffee and biscuits becomes the staple diet. Study leaves are for sleeping. The situation is so pathetic that we find ourselves laughing on us. The entire night we study like we have never before. And by the morning, how much be the course, we reach the exam hall with the satisfaction that we will manage to get decent marks. Then what happens inside is magic. The engineer’s magic! 😛

It is said, only an engineer knows how much he knows! But never challenge an engineer because exams and marks can never become his hurdle. He can shine out of the most difficult situations and manage even the most impossible tasks. An engineer may be a topper or a 5-point-someone, what matters is how gutsy and determined he is. Cheers to our spirit, People! Because that has made all the difference! 🙂

  1. Engineering is where our future lies…is that true….yes….we may not know some laws and theorems , we may not be toppers, we may not have great physic, we may be afraid to express ourselves, we may even question others existence other than us,but then what we really are….today in our lab, sir taught us we should smile while speaking or delivering anything to others, it looks nice…. almost everyone failed to do that present there…. strange, yes we may not do this too. But we are the reason for crores of smiles across the globe, best of managers are from us….because we have managed hell lot of things in our life till now… Ask those kids who live in hostels and pgs who don’t even know whether they will be getting proper food at night and still giving their best shots in each and everything they do in college. Aisa lagta hai hum to paida hi engineering karne ke liye hue the. Is that true…fuck that…thanks to great indian society….engineering mai dalo bacho ko..scope hai bahot…10th mai 90% aye hai..IIT ke liye prepare karvao bache ko…..par atleast ask him what he want to do….science ,commerce ,arts to dur ki bat hai….sidha IIT.…total bullshit…still we are here doing things which others think are supernatural…we are also normal human beings with same brains as other do….here we find way with everthing…
    • asked for project in morning , to be submitted by evening…..checked
    • give exams even without knowing which exam we are appearing…..checked
    • answering questions abot which we have no idea…..doble checked
    • feeling like there’s no tomorrow…..checking everyday
    • want a film to be made on our lives….in processing

    we , engineers as I told are not here by choice…but are something cum engineers…someone is singer cum engineer, some are writer cum engineer, some are actor cum engineer,some are cricketer cum engineer,and all professions possible included. We all are living 2 lives here, thinking that some day some miracle will happen and we all will be on right track. And we all thing that’s true. The famous dialogue of ranjhnaa movie goes like…”sala hum maholle walo ka pyar hamesha doctors aur engineers le jate hai..” beta kabhi koi engineering college mai ana…bajrang daal milenge….kabhi socha hai doctor itne khush kyu hote hai…
    As chaitzz told …sometimes I thing studing machines and electronic devices…we are also one among them…suppressing our emotions deep down in the earth…baat chali hi hai to…grounding them. But whenever you want to see this suppressed emotions in us…get to any football, basketball or cricket field….there u will see the real us…the human side of an engineer. Screaming ,shouting and hooting at top of their voices…abusing the opposition with different slangs….and spending their every iota of energy left in their body after attending 6-8 hours of marathon lectures.end of the day both team wins …as we all are engineers. We here at college are family of 300-400 odd people…calling them friends is a understatement …they play the role of father , mother and plenty of brothers and sisters out there ….because we know we all need each other out there. We have seen here the best and the worst days of our lives….we engineers are best thing happened to this world…college give degree when we pass all the subjects and get all the credits…according to me….even living and getting through the 8 semesters is a big achievement..and there should be some certification for this too. This is not going to end and this can go on and on…but as our professor says that “ engineering is a serious business”…got to return to our” boring yet we can make it interesting stuffs”…until next time

    Love life….
    Do good…..
    Live well….
