Mine Graduation Years

The quality of a university is measured more by the kind of student it turns out than the kind it takes in. If this is parameter of measuring my career development in ITBHU, I am both amused and amazed.

The reason for amazement is mine area of interest. It had changed dramatically from past. I had stumbled across Brand named I.I.T. after passing 10+2 exams. I consider myself good in Physics, Chemistry and Maths with lot of positive attitude. Then,I patronize only two things: Movies and challenging questions in P.C.M. (Physics, Chemistry and Maths).

Today, I remember PCM as percentage male character. Thats the ugly but naked part of me. I learned a valuable lesson now at the verge of graduation. If you are good in P.C.M., then it is not necessary that you will definitely succeed in engineering career.

The reason of amusement is the impact of university and friends on my personal development. There is such flow of knowledge available in the college that is beyond imagination. Even though it is a engineering college, there are bond guys in field of academics, music, sports, theater & technology. I was lucky to be part of such geniuses as college mates. It reveals the basic fact that diversity of species in ecosystem lead to better evolution.(Biological law applied successfully on an engineering college [:D])

I was full of energy, enthusiasm and determined to make point at time of joining. But, I was not molded for engineering stream. I was curious, original but not creative enough for engineering. I have prepared a chart of mine professional and personal gain and loss simultaneously in these years.


Optimistic Gain

Pessimistic Loss


Evolution from a school boy to college Student i.e. Fun loving creature

Loss of Enthusiasm for academics and frustration over system irregularities.


Excited about prospective Mechanical engineering

Illusions of interests in professional field due to lack of proper guidance & negligence of studies


Hope for better projects & internship. Shaping my career profile.

Poor academics and fall of grades. Charm of engineering is over.


Vision of mine future is clear. A sense of renunciation is in mind. Securing Jobs in hand.

Relaxation and carelessness about projects, studies & everything just flourished.

It was a pleasure to work with persons from different geographical and mental background. I enjoyed several positive changes in front of me in this institute. Internet connection, Wi-Fi Project, Availability of E-Journals, Activation of institute email id's, library computerization and several other things gives the positive input for institute and students.

From now on, I will carry a brand name of ITBHU on my shoulders with dignity and respect. I may not choose my life as a technocrat but these four years have left mark on me. I am proud to be called as alumnus of ITBHU.


  1. Hey! Really nice blog! I also have one, =) It’s in English, but I actually live in Sweden. How about U?
    Have a nice day =)

  2. Quite a frank confession... esp. the pessimistic losses in the table!
    Keep going. :)

  3. @loonytalk
    Thanks Sir for your words of encouragement;

  4. Good stuff man. You hit the nail on the head. Again. good job!


  5. Good stuff Himanshu! Don't forget that life is a collection of changes. The biggest change that one faces in India, for the first time (normally), is when he leaves the comfort and security of his home for a life in the hostel. However there are further changes / shocks in store when the person joins the work force. The experience of those 4 years helps a lot in absorbing those shocks!
    Later when you look back at your life and its progression you realize that those were the 4 years "very well spent"!
    Good Luck!

  6. I am sure most of the so called 'Engineers' from india's top T-Schools would echo your viewpoint, However they get this 'experience' aka 'comb' after they lose their 'quality learning time' aka 'hair'.
    Although my story was no different at college. But I feel, academically, students need to do more than what they do. An apathy towards curriculum is a sad trend, especially when you see US universities churning out Entrepreneurs who could create companies out of their academic projects. (It's arguable that Some would say they are mostly PHDs, but we have the right potential to start from the UG college itself on our entrepreneurial dreams.)
    In any case, one of the foremost contributors to boost this trend would be students' focus on academics & research in their chosen field of interest, it may or may not be his/her branch at ITBHU :-). The other day at Tie-Canaan challenge, saw a professor/students team representing a company from IIT-Mumbai incubation center. Their product was also inspired from their academics. In India, we would need to create an ecosystem for creativity/entrepreneurship through sound academics & research coupled with the all round skills (which schools like ITBhU anyway helps you develop ;) )

  7. @animesh sir
    Thanks for your guidance sir..

  8. @manu goyal
    I will try to accommodate and then evolve as a better professional in workplace.

  9. @Puneet Sir
    I am a simple fellow with no big dream but entrepreneur business is out of my reach.Problem faced by students is lack of official proper platform to discuss their problems with administration in college.Entrepreneurship or change in structure is dream without action involved by alumni and students.They do not want to read blogs(theoretical work bore them) but want change in system by practical ways.Every community has a voice;It was not marx but lenin which has brought change in the Russia.
