In the following argument i am targeting all of you who have done the project
in the so called project institutes or more precisely not entirely by yourselves….
Its highly unfortunate for having to see this silly trend of getting your projects done under the highly helpful guidance(sarcastically of course) of your ‘Project Institute guides’….There is no need to hide it,cos we know what goes on there..
I shall be giving you a detailed analysis of all the beautiful and important things you’ve missed out in doing so…These are the things you’ve missed:
1. The feeling of coming up with an ‘idea’ of your own, a coagulation of your own thoughts to give form to some abstract thing…Instead of choosing between the tested models of someone else….Sorry, you’ve lost a great deal of course in honing your brain to think productively…
2.Next comes choosing your plan of action and path of execution: Literally there are ‘n’ number of ways to bring life to an idea…Selecting the path most comfortable to you could be the best teacher you could ever encounter….Cos, thats when you introspect your real technicality and choose between all the probables…. Here again, unfortunately you have only a road trodden by many to walk through and not a path of your own….
3.Then comes the warm blooded emotional surge of desperation, frustration,helplessness as you realise your ignorance about the things you are supposed to know….Then it is followed by the most beautiful learning exercise-learning for applying….You won’t forget these things ever in your life….But, unfortunate again for you,you are made to learn these things before hand like preparing for your internal tests….
4.Then comes the best feeling,atleast my own personal best feeling till now….The inexplicable feeling when you see your idea coming into life slowly, module by module, part by part and the orchestration of all these together-I have no words to describe it…The air of euphoria amongst the team members, the sigh of relief and the anxiety to go and celebrate….Just superb!!!
Well apart from these, the rapport between the team members increases to a great extent, and you discover various hidden flavours of your own personality…
I pose an open contest to those of you who disagree with this- Try defend yourselves…..
Hey, awesome really 🙂 :)We too faced similar challenges. We were supposed get the results at precise timings. In our first attempt we got it four clock cycles later. We took one more day to bring it down to two. It was such a relief when we finally hit the target:) Later we had to work on an unfamiliar micro-controller. Had a tough time figuring out the way forward. Guess around that time you had sent this forward-‘knowing the path is not the same as walking the path’. Very apt. But once things fall in place it is a pleasure to work on…Our project at a prestigious PSU was not path-breaking. But I proudly say “It’s our work, we did it”(without the ‘highly helpful guidance’) Must say, you have been pretty bold in writing this ‘sarcastic’ blog! 🙂
I know, the amount of efforts we put in being at the same platform as others must be a taken as a beating for the others who always want to have a security even for their marks ;)And about this post, yes,it has stirred the reactions what i had anticipated it to…Unfortunately i have received varied comments on my cell and not here…
Good one man!!! Yes you are right!! But you’ve not taken any institute’s name here right??? Shall i give out the name??? or you’ll do it for me??? I am very eager to take that name!!! Hahahahaha
@Sunil:Dude no need to impress on a known fact…. Everyone knows who’s at the dart board 😉
Yes. I agree. I want to add that my own experience of “Buying the Project” has only worsened my situation. The least I can say is this kind of dependence on others only puts me down further. So for those who will be doing projects in future”Trust Yourself to solve your problems irrespective of the situation”
@Anupama:Yup…Positive results inherently take time and effort,keeping that in mind yours was a good piece of advice….
