The liable

Dear all it has been long so thought posting something different, welcome back to a new story.

 As Winston Churchill once said “The price of greatness is responsibility. ” Here is something that will talk about responsibility.

Well when you don’t write for long this is what you suffer with, an anxiety and weird ideas. To be honest as an engineer we are blessed with the most wiered of ideas. After all 4 years of last minute job and using the rest of the time for no use has some fruitful returns and one of the biggest one is innovation and innovative thinking. IF you don’t trust me ask yourself and if you are honest enough you will get the same answer. To further strengthen my words I have people who are engineers and are known for thinking out of box Nitin Gupta (rivaldo), Kumar vishvas are the few which are known and popular but there are many more who like them think out of box but are not popular. So to begin with what am I here to present you with, well thinking of engineering days here an idea that inspired me to write this blog.
All our life we think what if we were a bit old, what if we would have scored couple of more marks, what if we did good in that paper, what if we had not gone to that place, life is full of what if and that is why there is nothing wrong in thinking what if. But if we can imagine a situation for ourselves why can’t we think similarly for others. The simple reason for that is we are too focused on ourselves &  our goodness, so let me take you out of your own realm and take you to another funny ride, some of you would find it close to your heart because after all we all belong to one useful community call engineering community. So here we go with another roller coaster ride named obedience. Being an Indian you would have heard a story about an obedient child named Shravan Kumar. When our mothers use to tell us this story, she uses to expect us to be like him. But things change because change is the only thing that prevails and is consistent. The biggest credit to this change is given to college life. But what our mothers fail to understand is Shravan kumar did not go to college if he would have gone to college i.e Engineering College this is how the story would have gone.
So after all the hard work and with lots of blessings from his parents he finally managed to reach a good Engineering college. But the big question would be would he be living with his parents then or he would have left his parents? Assuming he lives with parents so all day he studies in college (did I say study….oopppss forgot engineers study only a night before exams). But what is the key difference between us and Shravan kumar when he goes to engineering college?
The first one he cant smoke or drink just like other guys, the other big difference he cant trace Engineering drawings, he needs to show sincerity towards all subjects, he cant sit at the back bench and relax. The reason pretty simple when he goes to college everyday he is been asked to study properly and take down notes of all the subject. What he misses in all this is hostel life, the fun of ragging, socializing …to certain extent. Despite all the odds he still manages to find a love for himself. What will happen and how does he fall in love, what would be the romantic side of Shravan kumar?
So he thinks of falling love so he goes to his parents and asks for what do they think about his marriage, to which he got a reply the girl should be good looking from same caste and should be cultured. Shravan thought thats a easy thing to do. So what he does next is finds out list of all the girls in college. In doing this he finds that in his engineering college he just have 100 girls overall. In a college with over 1000 student only 100 girls, depicting a skewed gender ratio. Shravan still does not loose heart, he then tries to see how many girls belong to his caste, the filter reduces the girls to just 15. He was shocked but he still was strong willed he kept his hope alive he then tried to think of how many girls are good looking, which further reduced the number to just 1. He tried to enquire about that girl but found already changed 5 boys in 4 months, so she is definitely not cultured.
Disappointed Shravan does not loose hope, he still tries his luck on other 14 so he changes his strategy tries to look for horoscope match. He finds amongst those 14 only 1 matches in horoscope. So he decides that this is the girl for me and can you guess what is the next step Shravan takes?
He goes to his parents and says he is in love with this gal and he wants to marry this gal but he finds that his parents had one more condition that the girl should not work after marriage. This was the big question and even Shravan Kumar didn’t know the answer to this. Poor guy with no time to spare and no distraction to his study he suffered no love life for whole of his engineering life. So my question to you all is what should Shravan kumar be like in todays era?? Do let me know through your comment.

Thanks
