Engineer by profession

Memories!!!!!!
They tease me, make me afraid at times, but that is what inspired me to be persistent when I felt the world has turned upside down. I was actually puzzled again, for I got a comment that "my persistence is scary". Still I persist, for those who looked beyond the scary, high air nature and made me believe that I can. The first and foremost persons being my parents.


I remember, my father taking me to Kanakakkunnu palace and Nishagandhi, through the Museum-Zoo road to see Onaghosham. By 7th standard, I could read English and probably at that time, by reading the board which stood near to this Nishagandhi-Muzeum-Kanakakkunnu area, "Institute of Engineers" made me puzzled. At that time I know what a mason/carpenter/painter/plumber/mechanic/police/doctors does. But I hardly had a clue on what "Engineer" does. I think someone explained me that these are people who "makes vehicle/construct dams". "Oh, what is big difference between them with mason or or mechanic?"

Well I did not know the answer at that time. Don't ask me if I know it now :P. But by profession and by degree, I am that.

The passion or craze to do things is the start. Then "bad experiences and failures", follows, where you feel "u r n deep shit". From this point if u persist and make it work, that may be called as engineering (my own defn... please don't jump on me and stamp me for this). Software engineers are special category in this. They create "bugs", follow them with "mouse" and smile when they see others also running with "baygon and hit". I still like to be crazy, jump in deep pits and then come back to tell "f***", I should not have done that.

When I see the outcomes of such craziness, which forms different shapes and becomes a part of human life, improving the difficulties we face and make us enable writing this blog or interact with people around the world, to help and to stand each other, I feel to be proud of a "software engineer".

Belated "happy engineers day"

Oooooops!!! This day differes in different countries. Another craziness :-)

India celebrates it in memoirs of Visweswaraya of Mysore. (VTU and Visweswaraya Technical Muzeum of Bangalore are named after him).
