The sense of relief and happiness that all students feel after their exams are over, is indescribable in few words. The exaltation is more if the exam is the last one of whatever course the student had been studying for a long time. The sense of riddance from studying on exam’s eve, doing an “all-nighter”, the nervousness, the nausea induced due to tension, sleepiness in exam hall, sudden blankness shrouding the memory and the postmortem of the question paper; is nothing short of a pleasure comparable to the sensation caused by cocaine (as rumored by drug abusers). And after graduation, often we pledge not to fall again into the trap of education system and its encumbrances. But as I’ve expressed my philosophy earlier, one often meets his destiny in the road he takes to avoid it.
After completing my Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical, I joined Master of Engineering in another and totally different stream due to my interest. But few months later I got the job of a lecturer in my core stream and I loved it. As for the M.E. stream, its really hard for freshers to get opening. Recently I experienced the joy of last exam on the day I had my project viva. But I knew the happiness was short lived because to promotion in this profession, one has to be postgraduate in the concerned branch and for that I would have to do M.E./M.Tech in my core stream. So here I am, again treading the path of Studies & Exams to do my 2nd M.E. (along with job), causing some people to be shocked, some to be amazed, some to worry and some to falsely believe I’m a very studious person. Whereas the joke is on me. 😀 🙂 In spite of my insincerity and lack of concentration, I have managed to come a long way on this path (credit to my sister, my intelligence, memory and luck) and now I fervently hope & pray that I get through this one too, notwithstanding obstacles such as these :-
These books are only of the 1st semester. And there are 3 more books which are authored by foreign authors and available as soft copies. So wish me luck guys and girls!!
