It is not an unknown fact that Engineering is the most popular stream in India. Is it the rigid mindset of we Indians or the lack of awareness, that leads to the serving of engineering as the only option on the platter, to the students?The engineering business thrives on this very market of eager to-be-engineers.

The only thing that matters is the whole process of graduating seems to be those 10 extra marks that can get one through yet another year of the Engineering duel.
What do you think is the reason behind this? Is it among the teachers, for this lack of motivation to make that extra effort?

The education, which is going to provide hands on experience and not just a degree certificate in the hands. The education which is going to shape the future of the country and not drive it into economics crisis.
