The continuation for the previous post(lust part 2) will not be written because my co author and friend say it is too bold and raw and crude for people to perceieve(i had written it but later deleted it)So I apologize.here comes the new post.And this one is written in just a haste ,so it will neither have order nor humour nor grammar,so please bear with it
There is one great dialogue from a Rajni kanth movie 'BABA'.It is something like this"a wise man does not speak and a foolish man cannot be without speaking".I like this dialogue for primarily two reasons
1.It came from the mouth of RAJNI KANTH
2.It refers to the people i see around me in my everyday life and especially at IIT.
Because we(the so called intellectuals) come from IIT(the so called best college for engineering)people expect us to know everything.Recently when i went home for holidays the motor that draws water stopped working.
Suddenly my mom called me and asked what subjects i had studied the previous semester.i started replying 1.DIGITAL ELECTRONICS 2.MATERIAL SCIENCE 3.ELECTROMACHINERY.
Then she asked me to stop and asked what i studied in electromachinery.when she learnt that i had learnt about transformers and motors,she asked me if i could repair the motor.my first dialogue"what a joke",second dialogue"what the f..k",though the second was only in my mind and in my own language.
When i replied that i cudnot,she said isnt a mechanic better than you then.
I thought she had a point.
A mechanic who never might have gone beyond 10th class,never dreamt of engineering knows better than anyone of us the working of a motor and he knows everything about it.And he is not going to forget it like we do after a semester ends.
So isnt everything we are being taught and we have been learning nothing in comparision to what we call as "experience".So we the so called intellectuals are nothing when compared to people who have not even studied half as much as we do.
Thats what i think is wrong in the system,its high time we realised education is beyond the walls of the classroom,should cross the boundaries of school and should come out from the confines of the text book.
ALL THE ABOVE WRITTEN THING IS IN RESPONSE TO PEOPLES PERCEPTION OF IITIANS.AND ALL THAT I WRITE BELOW IS IN RESPONSE TO MY PERCEPTION OF IITIANS(WHICH INCLUDES ME)
note:the followingt subject matter contains references inappropriate to hypocrites

Because this post refers to my friends i will use capital letters to refer them and not by name.
Two days back i went into K's room.K was seeing a movie on his laptop(an english one).I also saw the film for about two minutes and realised that a girl was playing in a men's football match.I asked K why the girl was playing.He said she was dressed like a man and playing.I had no problem with the film or its storyline.The movie was SHE's THE MAN.But I had a problem with K.Because the same K told RAB NE BANA DI JODI was an illogical film and questioned as to why the heroine couldnot identify shah rukh after he has removed his moustache.I replied that it was a film and he indeed looked different which he refused to accept.So now i have a problem with K if RNBDJ appeared illogical how come you liked SHE's THE MAN.And with the extra assets the girl had it would be very easy to say she's a woman in the football attire of hers.
This is just one instance.100 such incidents happen everday.
The answer though untold by K(or any other) is very simple.It is written on their faces
HOLLYWOOD DOES NOT AND WILL NOT MAKE MISTAKES.BOLLYWOOD DOES NOT AND WILL NOT MAKE GOOD FILMS.
What I'm trying to say is people take pride in ridiculing their own habits and style and appreciating others as that would mean he was much higher than his own fellowmen.
It makes themselves believe they are cool and intelligent.
This is what i call 'I'm the STUD' syndrome.
People act like pseudo intellectuals just to say to themselves"ALL IZZ WELL AND I'm ALSO A STUD"
NOTE:Though the message i wanted to say is conveyed,the style of writing is in view of creating humour(if it created any) and i hope it wont be taken personally.
IMPORTANT NOTE:K is a stud and an intellectual except for that one meeting
