Looking Back ! Missing Europe !!!

Though am not a regular blogger ,thought sharing things that wont deplete anything !
After my long stay in Europe I came back to my country on March 1st 2005 (Swades movie played important role ).From then on I had wandered across India for about 1 year ,starting from Pondicherry, Bijnor near Meerut,Dehradhun,Jaipur and finally Pune. I had spent minimum of 3 months in each of these cities.Pune has been my home for last 4 years .I had lot of dreams to fulfill and the place where am working gave me an oppurtunity do the same.

But as time went by ,I am finding myself in a routine,my academic dreams are shattered ,my physique isnt suporting my work,but my dreams are still alive and everyday my head is spininning with new ideas and thoughts and acheivable goals.(Goal setting is taught in MBA but life has taught me that in easy ,fast and in a furious way ( thats how my head also processes thoughts sometimes)

Being born and raised in south for 20 years ,my experiences in Europe for 6 years and my yatra in India 1 year and my experiments with Indian education system for 4 years have taught me many things in my life, I came to know about myself and what I am meant to do in this life,though i travel a lot ,i dont have any saving to think like average educated Indian middle class lad getting job,married and settling down. I have understood few things about this country ,but all may not be commonly acknowledged facts.

Living in hypocratic,selfish ,money minded Indian society ,I have found myself a loner but thats what I am.(Unless you are an elevated satellite ,you cant get overall picture of the earth) .Being loner ,observer and selfish (Howard roark) about my ideas,my observation are coming true.Thoughts which are being assembled inside my head from childhood ,which were ahead of time ,are becoming true everday .

For a sample read this : When I was in my class 8th,I had sung a rap song (R & B ( Rythm and Blues) many listen to these kind of songs without understanding where it comes from ,what it is ,how it got mixed in horrible Indian movie music ) and i was made fun off for that ,today i findIndian movies full of the same,( why you want to copy the west ) irrespective of the language in which the flim is made.

India at large is capable country but its people and common man ( especailly the edcuated ones ) are responsible for the country to become one like this .

Take a look at our edcuation system ,( boasting our habit ) 1.2 crore are enrolled in higher edcaution system in a country of 141 crores? ( isnt that funny).If one wants to talk about quality in Indian edcaution system then better we commit sucide .


Will discuss in length about this factor in my next blog ,I would also like share my thoughts on society and the qulaity of the society ,,,
sample this we have 5000 years old history ,we respect woman, woman is everything in this society ( atleast in rituals ) but Delhi ,the capital has been given the name of " Rape Capital of the world ", we have aids popualton thats equivalent to the population smaller population like switzerland etc,,,hypocracy????? doesnt end here its everywhere...

most important thing ,our thought prcess ,scoiety,edcuation ,comfort,religon,ritauls,science and technology everything is linked thats what we dont understand in India,thats why we are servants to others rather than creators??????

HI Sir ,

I agree with your views , if a country as small as Taiwan can export major electronics and be far more developed than us ,we better tighten our socks .

I believe that the one of the chief reasons for which we are in today is because of our 'chalta hain ' attitude .Be it a government office or any damn place except a few , it has creeped everywhere and destroying us ,our system and our country .

Waiting to read the solutions you suggest .

sir u have written the right words!!

we have to a lot of things to change this country but what can do
with this high profile "BABUS" sitting on the top.

and after completing my B.Tech I fell that a lot has to be changed in higher education model as I didn't found the education there off what I thought it would me {much practicle orienteded} & thats why some new brilliant new ideas die out initially.

well when i read ur blogs i see so much of grilling... :)
but whats the point in making remrks about any system?evry system in the world's got problem attached to it...while sheeding light i=on problem is important,its also important to give solutions for it....its always easy to criticize rather than give a solution ..bein in tech field u cud put a lota solution oriented views so tat atleast we may knw we can proceed in this way...

Vinod said...

Well I agree with Gautam... there is too much of grilling.

This county does not lack grilling let the BABUS handle it. I am really looking forward for solutions from you. Solutions to inspire people, and to change the mindset of the budding engineers.

You are there to add value to this system, lets not worry about the filth in the society, instead add sanity to this educational system.

I wish you success in your journey.

ya That's 100% right sir....
I too have felt that for years....
But...
When i came to realize about the education system that i am learning in right now,l have to express my point of view.so i spoke with my friends and professors about how to tackle it and what is our responsibility fight for it....

i have spoken with my friends(around 20) as a presentation about our responsibility in this country about an engineer and what are we doing now???

ya my friends agreed with my point but a few opposed pointing that they don't want to achieve their ultimate aim is only settle in life..

The friends ,who agreed with me,has agreed to cope with me..

after a week i observed each ones activity i came to know that they are back to their original position where they are from before my presentation...

Then i realized one fact.."when the world goes wrong try to change it..if you couldn't ...then change yourself to adapt with the world but don't give your way ...pretend to cope with the world..and walk in your way..." here i pointed out world as our educational system..

Right now i am acting in this way..
and the results are as "the right one will do only right things"

that's the thing (most important) i realized in my life "only the person who Couldn't will criticize on others but the winners will find a way even from a small hole which will lead to success"

i want to be a winner so i adapted myself pretending to be with the educational system....

My quotes to my youth community
"don't be among a person in thousand walkers who walk through the street.........
BUT BE A PERSON WHO LEADS THE THOUSAND"
Be a UNIQUE person....

INNOVATORS don't do different things but they d things differently
