Engineer!! I am

What did I want to be one when I was young? Well answer to that question is that I wanted to be an engineer but by the time I reached High school the thought of me becoming an engineer was as much far away from mind as much is the thought of me going bald over next few years rite now. Still I became an engineer, shows god’s short far sightedness for me; always making those things happen in my life from which my mind is far far away.

So what exactly happened? Although I would like to ponder over this question in my free time, Wait a sec, I am writing a blog post so this is a free time. So after thinking hard over this question for 5 minutes which involved side by side chatting with a friend on gmail and eating munching down a pack of Oreo, I have short-listed the possible reasons why I chose engineering:

  • I couldn’t score enough to get an admission in Medical School.
  • I didn’t have enough to get a full payment seat in Medical School.
  • Thought of studying one more year for Medical School entrance exam scared the hell out of me.
  • Engineering was still considered 2nd best option after medical studies.
  • My parents said that I have an aptitude for engineering citing examples of me disassembling any dysfunctional working electronic instrument and making it repairable beyond any one’s capacity.
  • All engineers in my family brainwashed me into believing that it’s a safe career and there won’t be any tension related to job in future.
  • It was after all my first choice, like your first love you can’t deny it ;).
  • And lastly most importantly no one told me about low female to male ratio in engineering colleges.

ohhhhhhh.........so unfair....nobody told you about the male female ratio.... anyways,,,you can't help it now..... And i think you made wise decision by joining engineering..... dropping one year for medicine doesn't gives the surety of getting admission...it's not that easy....ask me!!!

in case u do not make it Large then just ask your relatives who brainwashed u for an explanation.. but I still like 'first love' being the reason :) :)
