Education and similar inconsequetial stuff…

my education has seen a constant state of decline… my schooling was done at a 120 year old institution called Colvin Taluqdars’ College. heritage, traditions, you name it the place had it in exuberant abundance. quite a start for your academic career. anyway, the rot started right from the moment i entered a new college… hardly 7-8 years old. forget about traditions… the college did not even have well defined rules. Kumaun engineering College… that was what it was called. nestled snugly in a remote Himalayan Valley, the college kept away most of the world’s capitalist tendencies… in other words basically that meant no placements, no amazing salaries and sometimes a seriously unambitious crowd. what it had in abundance was beauty and lethargy. i am yet to meet a KECian who has not been super lazy at least in part.
chilly mornings to sunny afternoons to breezy evenings…. you name it we had it at KEC. classes, well yeah they were also there… amongst other things; like enoromous spiders, brawls with local villagers, RAGGING, stale samosas and an annual Sialdah Mela.
to me kec would always remain the place that took away my fear of speaking in public… and to some extent singing.
KEC also meant friendships… wonderful, beautiful, enduring friendships…

that was my college… then for my PG i entered an institute which was hardly a year old… SCMHRD nasik. the rate of this perpetual decline of educational standards suggests that i should do my PhD as the first batch of some institute in Bihar!!!
SCMHRD… well more about it some other time…
