VIDEO: Engineering in India

Engineering is one of the most popular fields in India but many of them do not choose it for themselves. In this video, I talk about Engineering in India along with some hard hitting truths about Indian country! Watch the video and let me know what you think!

The L word

Learning is about inspiration, not information!

You are never really “done” learning. Learning is a constant process that keeps your mind alive and functioning. It can be thought of as breathing for your brain, once you stop doing it, your brain becomes dead<so to speak!> Idle mind is a devils playground. And when you stop assimilating knowledge, your brain becomes idle and starts wandering off in unproductive directions with you having no control over them!

When you do not feed your mind important, informative, intellectual <and other words starting from i that’ll make you think I’m smart> things to think about, it’ll usually result in you pondering over problems and overthinking, which is not healthy for either you or your brain. Keep your mind busy enough so it does not have time to think and worry about all the things that do not exist. Overthinking causes you to worry about the most unlikely scenarios <Imagine some witty example of why overthinking is a mess!>

We can all agree that education system, which says it is teaching something to kids, is heavily flawed. A bunch of kids — each definitely unique in their own ways, with obviously different interests, and who will all take varied amounts of time to comprehend and learn something are taught the same thing over a same period of time and are tested on the basis of their understanding of that! In my opinion, these tests determine the ability of the teacher to convey the information more than the student’s intellectual ability. <Many Indians nodding furiously in approval>

Since the obvious choice of learning seems to be below par, what do we do? Well, the Internet is a wonderful place to turn to at this time. We are fortunate to be a part of a world where you can Google anything and information about it appears for free, at your convenience.

Think about it, Internet is like your portable library+personal advisor+intellectual partner in crime.

In a world where information is so easily and readily available, the irony is that not many access and make use of it. We instead use the Internet for social media stalking and validation purposes. There’s nothing wrong with that but I urge you to take one small break from that routine and to focus on learning something new. It is a very small change in your life that could lead to many good things.

Why hate when you don’t have to?

It is very easy to hate and say mean things about each other but takes a lot of effort to spread love. Think about it, have you ever heard yourself say that you hate someone? Chances are, you have! But have you tried not hating them? Have you given yourself an opportunity to understand what they must be going through to have said or done that mean thing? May be they are not a bad person and do not deserve your hate – may be it was circumstances that made them do something horrible; it could be their bad experiences or their bad childhood.. either way, everybody deserves love.

Yes, sometimes you feel like you have no choice and what the other person has done is so horrible and you feel like they aren’t a nice person and you just wish they were dead. But give yourself the time to walk away from the situation and reflect on it. If you still feel they aren’t worth your time, then don’t cross paths with the person again.. Keep yourself away from that kind of negativity and give yourself a chance to love more people in a better way.

Why intensify the hate towards the people you hate when you can intensify the love towards the people you love?

Spread some love and some joy to the world. If you are not able to do that, at least don’t spread hate. Everyone has a story you aren’t aware of and stop judging them without knowing the whole chronicle. If you cannot be in the presence of someone without hating on them, keep yourself away from them and give yourself a chance to be around people that make you happy.

 

Spread some love.
