Physics Honours: worst mistake...last mistake

When I got the hell out of class 12(12th grade for people outside India) I was a naive little 6 footer who was torn between his parents' wish to see him as another product out of India's engineering factory and staying the fuck at home and devoting myself to metal. I gave 3 (of the least easy to clear) engineering exams, and (luckily) did not get in.Then my parents started panicking but were pacified when I consented to take Physics honours in 'the best college in South Campus'...Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams Sri Venkateswara College (no,you are not supposed to mention the whole name each time you speak it). Even the pep-talk given by the teachers initially charged me up a bit in the scientific direction.Then, the studies began piling on, the college premises itself started looking morbid. Then I started to see how INSANE the teachers were('insane' as in what you become when you go beyond being passionate about something,Physics in this case). Every one of them works as if the student is the enemy. Forget about guidance.Once you've taken Physics honours, you fend for yourself. You're expected to be reading up about freakin' electrical BRIDGES or different lenses or some SHIT like that in your free time!!!!!!!! And practicals? Forget it!!! They aren't even going to tell you how to START!!!Read about it,do it yourself and if you find it gratifying to go to the teacher when you get stuck somewhere only to hear "try again'',do right ahead. Its like the relationship Darth Vader has with Palpatine: he keeps getting sent on dangerous missions CREATED by Palpatine so that Palpatine can keep trying to kill him and make Vader angrier(basically a better Sith).

Personally, I have got more than sick of all this. And to think that I have to endure one whole year more makes it even WORSE!!!I can almost hear Satan laughing at me!!!!! I shall now make my decisions MYSELF!!!! No one,repeat, NO ONE makes them for me!!!!

Welcome to my world, dude!

My whole blog is based on a similar theme. Well, I hope you find what you really want to do in life, work hard towards it and feel satisfied.

I wish people would realise that money and security is no match for self satisfaction.

I know I want to do animation ad I'm doing diploma course from Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics.Have you heard of it???

Alok said...

I've heard about Maya and 3D Studio Max, and have even worked on some self made animation on 3DSMax.

This is indeed one field of work which has rising potential in the Indian Media. What more, it is extreme fun!

But this work requires artistic imagination and talent. I hope you have these.

well,i think i have the creativity.im just a bit lazy...

Alok Meshram said...

Haha, seems like everyone (including me, sometimes) likes to call themselves this. "Lazy".

Well, I hope you find a solution to this lethargy and find a way towards what you really want to do.

@ jiggs:

I was under the impression that where u do it from matters the least.at least,thats the case in animation

gunj said...

i did a similar mistake in life, had to bear it for 4 yrs, but wats gud dat came out of it was dat nw i hav loadsa courage to choose wat i think is right n not rely on others' decisions for me!

skeptic saint said...

whoa!

you are far better off than what you would have been had you some engg college... i m proof enough of that...

good luck!

Alok said...

My god!
"well at the end of the day it does not matter wh course ur doin all it matters is whr ur doin "

Now that is what I'm against.
All that matters is what you're doing, and the amount of dedication, hard work and innovation you put to it. Not where you do it from, and this is the case in nay field, not just animation and Engg.

Alok said...

Metal-Militant,

Whens the new post coming, dude?

metal-militant said...

thank you everyone for the support,at least there are some people out there that listen to my constant rants.thanks again.

Alok,I'm a bit busy with my exam preparations,but will try to sneak in a post or 2

Express said...

@ Alok,
aggressive again. I guess jiggs was speakin from biological sciences point of view. What you said makes absolute sense. If you have no passion for the course, doing it from anywhere won't help. Nut in case of biological sciences higher studies, Inst. make difference.

Not coz they make our future,
coz they make us better students.

Research is the field that CANNOT be struck hard without proper guidance. So, both you guys put it on rest, coz both u guys make sense in your own fields...

@ ishaan
Nice activity, ;-)
Cheers!

Aditi ''Jiggs'' said...

heyaa
ishan replyin to wt u said i guess
its the fault of the indian education system wh makes it so
as per the creative fields such as animation it does not matter whr u do it from but it does matter that u do.
as wt shatabdi said a good institute or college makes u a better person n enhances ur skills even in term of extra curriculum activities
wh hepls a lot later in life

cheers
