Let’s not tell our kids that what Sushant Singh Rajput did was right or that he was the victim of nepotism. Let’s teach our kids that all sorts of challenges (nepotism and much worse) may happen in every industry but they gotta fight it out. Suicide is quitting the game. HE WAS WRONG IN CHOOSING […]
Lets first look at some facts and prevalently accepted assumptions: People under the age of 50 have an extremely low mortality rate (0.2%) and that too predominantly for people with cardiovascular, diabetes, hypertension and other morbid diseases. You will at some point during the journey end up contracting CoronaVirus and if you are under 50 […]
Wikipedia defines World War as “a war engaged in by all or most of the principal nations of the world”. It doesn’t have to be a war amongst each other. No one said a world war has to be a war between 2 warring factions of humans. It doesn’t really need to be between countries, […]
Life is built on one basic principle – the extension and longevity of life itself. Every organism, every cell, everything is built with this one hardcoded algorithm. In extreme cases such as where adrenaline takes over or where we have a brain freeze moment, the algorithm may reverse itself. The only two other true facts […]
In a world where digital agencies keep flourishing and flopping…what sets us apart? People? Clients? Vibes? All of these certainly! But if we look closer…you’ll see him standing there. Smiling! The *funny man* who’s been sailing our vessel, quite steady and strong. As we rejoice recalling the good, bad, ugly moments of 10 years, we can’t […]
George Washington had 100’s of human slaves. Blacks that were part of his property. Yet, he is one of the most renowned libertarians of all time. Yet, he is one of the founding fathers of the place we know as United States of America. Here, locally in India, I used to jump traffic lights when […]
If independence is the ability to do what you want, when you want and where you want, then let me start by breaking down the basic notion of independence for you. Are you really independent? Can you really be independent? Will you really want to be independent? Before everyone jumps to the obvious answer, I […]
Saw something in the morning and started thinking about the concept of suicide: Ending one’s life of your own wish. While most people think of suicide as cowardly, I completely disagree. In my view, suicide is perhaps one of the most courageous acts one could perform. Unless, it is caused by a chemical imbalance. In […]
Today is Women’s Day! A day to either celebrate the might of 50% of the human population or, to rue over the exploits of 50% of the human population. The intention of both need to be identical. Creating the right place for women in the society. Please note, I didn’t say equal. Men and women […]
Engineering is the practice of making things better, more efficient and getting more out of the resources.
With the opening up of the economy nearly 2 decades back and the global workforce movement, India saw plethora of opportunities open up. The easiest thing to do was to open up a new engineering college, and hence we have more engineering colleges than McDonald’s, Dominos, PizzaHut and a few more fast food chains put together.
Over the last 2-3 years, as the industry has tightened and Indian IT industry is seeing perhaps its first slump in 2 decades, most smart colleges have doubled up (and more) their marketing spending and have been able to ensure sanity.
Till we saw 2017. The engineering colleges and the intake in them is struggling. By some estimates, the form sales have taken a hit by as much as 25% to 30%. And this in an industry where institutes have increased seats almost every year. The more expensive ones, the ones which have lower quality infrastructure and can’t justify their stance are the worst hit, but everyone is going through the pain.Continue Reading
