Engineeerrrrsssssss ......aaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!

I know I've been blogging a lot... I mean 2 posts in 3 days... with CAT roaring over my head... but on second thoughts, it really doesn't take a lotta time.... just 30 minutes max... and anyways I'm not one of those people who studies 23 hours a day that I'd worry about half an hour gone doing timepass. Also, Í don't talk on the phone now so I can time pass a bit!. Hah! Finally, feeling good after blurting it out that I'm not actually wasting time blogging!




Listen to your elders. And more importantly, listen to what your elders say. They say, " Don't count your chickens before they hatch" So please don't act over smart and start counting them, like I did!! My Goa IV is cancelled. And it is cancelled in such a way that I'm left to wonder if I'd have an IV at all! I was actually singing aloud yesterday and teasing my sis that I'm going to Goa!!Shit...this is not done! Listen to your elders, Nupur!! Does listening to your elders also mean listening to your mom who's always been right about you and you've always disobeyed only to regret later on, to not do an MBA now, that the MBA bubble too, has burst!? No MBA.. mom what will I do otherwise?!?? Creepy, to say the least... even the mere thought of only one degree ,...that too, well, which is like er..well BSc in the end! But maybe, I can go to UK/USA... those blondes revere BSc grads!! Only because they don't know what vella we've maroed in degree college. Now "vella" reminds me how baffled my Dad is whenever he spots Punju words in my speech... he's puzzled over the fact that I'm the first person who learnt Punjabi in Mithibai College(It's a place where even a Martian would turn Gujju!)!!! Dad... well, that's what happens when you're with Aanch the whole day!



I got my CAT center... some God forsaken place in Bandra East.. IES college or something like that! Bandra... Ah! Fond memories! But while I was at the IIM-A website checking my CAT details and stuff, I don't know what bug got into me and I decided to check the student profiles. I was kinda bamboozled and a bit angry. Figure this, for the 2008 batch, 74% students were engineers and in the 2009 batch... a whooping 89% were engineers! Holy Shit man!! In both the years, there were only 3% science grads! Now 3% of around 850 open seats would mean around 26 seats..... and I have to battle it out with 3 lakh aspirants... bloody engineers and IITians included to get ONE of the 26 seats!! FUCK!! And to top it all, I need to CLEAR Quants!!! Life has never been meaner. I also checked JBIMS' student profiles.... I must've gone uptill six pages.... and you guessed it right... all B.Techs and B.Es!




I'm just pissed off with them! Arey yaar, you're getting placement even before you pass out.... please leave some jobs and some seats for us gareeb people also! Now, I've actually figured out the entire recession cycle....how it started... no it wasn't the competition amongst banks to stay afloat that they started lending to bad borrowers.... it wasn't the global food and crude oil price rise, no it wasn't even real estate slump.... it was the ENGINEERS.... bloody who asked them to head banks and become investment bankers...... they should be building bridges and dams and things like those! OK.... I'll stop this anti-engineer bashing of mine before my engineer Dad, sis and friends come and wipe me off the face of Earth!





After looking at those figures, I was actually wondering why I am not an engineer. The most optimistic step that I had taken in my life was to buy engineering college forms and shell out 500 bucks per form, even when I knew that with my math and physics, I'd need at least 64 sems to become an engineer. I wonder how I passed class 12 Math and Physics... I did....like all other Bio students did....by rote! My sis till date shudders when I ask her to explain the Theory of Relativity to me..... she tried doing so a year back when she was preparing for JEE.... she spent 2 hours trying to drill in things in my brain... and the next day, she went crying to Mom that by trying to explain Physics to me..... she forgot hers!!! Ok... hyperboles apart... I'm not that bad in Physics, that I'd shake someone's basics...but I did manage to ruffle a few feathers!! So I can't utter the P word anywhere near my sis now!! And my sis won't utter the B- word... Biology of course!! After all, you can't beat the college topper in Biology in talking about Bio!!!




How much ever I may rant about engineers... I like them... they're are better than commerce grads at least! They have an iota of brain more than them.... and like you know... there's no bigger turn on than intelligence(and chocolates!!)!!! My guy has to be a tall, handsome, rich, engineer, Gujju guy.... Ok... now I know why I've been single since I landed on Earth... TALL, HANDSOME GUJJU all in one guy..... haha!!! Jokkkkesss!!!! LOL!!!

Seems like Engineers have given u a nightmare but believe me engineers aren't that talented to crack CAT and beat u in the competition...

u are smarter obviously...but dont u think its injustice on ur part having a balanced head above ur shoulders to be so generic in ur thoughts ??

Nupur said...

@Monty: Er..well, I wasn't serious about my anti-engineer stand... it was a light post!! I love em, infact!

Monty said...

i too was just kidding :)

but i can understand what it feels...not because i m also nt an engineer.....but engineering karke milta kuch nahin....isliye sab kuch alag karna chahte hain :P

Nupur said...

@Monty: Point!!

PRASAD said...

Nupur said...

@Rao: Haha!! But you know why I wanna do engg!!

Monty said...
