My doubt for the day is very simple. what do we own in life? We don’t own this body. After death, I have no control over it.Leave that, we don’t have any control over many phenomena associated with body even when we are alive, for instance diseases. We don’t own the water we drink. we don’t own the food we eat. we don’t own even the air we breathe. we don’t own our children. they come through us, not from us. So what do we own in life?
It’s the time of the year when students passing out from twelfth standard will find themselves busy in the preparations for entrance exams. I wish I could tell them what I feel about engineering after walking a bit longer in the way of life as an Engineering student. Engineering is the way of life where you question each phenomenon, find out reasons and if possible, apply the principle involved somewhere else productively. Never take a branch because of compulsion or because you think it can fetch you a good job. You can appreciate a concept only if you are interested in knowing about it. So interest is the first thing to be analyzed whenever a student decided to go for engineering education. Engineering education changes your personality and perceptions to an extent which you cant even imagine. If you stay on track, it would teach you to question and reason the various things happening around you. It would help you to appreciate yourself and others. It would teach you perseverance and teamwork. It would give you a whole new pair of eyes. Your life will be never the same after you choose to be an ENGINEER.
