d kissa of a crazy engineer ...

We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much for so long with so little that one day we will qualify to do anything with knowing nothing...

this my frnds, is describing engineering in a nutshell..."dictionary.com" defines engineering as "skillful or artful contrivance; maneuvering", maneuvering who or wat dey dnt say...

a joke goes dat 1ce an ultra-expensive machine gt stuck...nuthin wuld make it work n d company couldnt afford noder one n dat machine's warranty hd expired, so dey decided to take d next best option which would go easier on deir pockets...dey struck a challenge dat ne engineer who could make it work again would go lush wid money dey askd fr...bt if s/he culdnt do it, no fees wuld b given...engineers came by tonnes n failed(IITians as well...;-)...days went by n d desperation grew...

one day dere came an old man who volunteered to do it...reluctantly, d machine was handed over to d man...

he askd fr 30 hrs to solve it...

24 hrs he studied d machine...

5 hrs 55 mins he slept n 5 mins b4 tym he woke up n askd fr a chalk which ws provided...

he marked a piece X n askd d company to replace it...ppl snorted n rubbished d man...

however, d company decided to try it out n dey replaced it...n voila!! it worked!!...den came d payment time...

d man asked fr $50,000...d guys lukd a him as if he was a crazy hag...

dat wuld get me a new machine- d chairman cried...

detail me ur fees, d director told him...

d old man gave a crinkled smile n said...chalk mark...$1...

knowing where to put it-$49,999...

knowing smthng is a two-way street...theory is wen u know smthng but it doesnt work n practical is wen smthng wrks n u dnt know y...we engineers combine both...nothing works n we dnt know y...;-)

adidas says-impossible is nothing...guess dey nvr hd psycho profs breathing down deir necks n assignmnts deadlines to chase...so i like nike bttr...atleast i cn say -"just did it.."..

bad decisions make fr gud experiences as m still realizing...d worse ur decision, d more outta d wrld xperience ur gonna gt...i mean take me as d perfect bunny...

rotting in tumkur in a stream called biotech. which i still dnt know y i optd fr...mayb d terms "insanity n jackass" will shed more light...my degree will b a joke(if i eventually survive dis place)...neither enginner, nor doc...stranded in b/w wid a career in which d only scope is a microscope...

i guess i shuld hv opted fr archaeology as a career...atleast it sound cooler wen i say my career lies in ruins...;-)

n not in finding y ppl luk fat in genes...

...or trousers fr dat matter...;-)...sry abt d pj fellas...if u cn cheer me up do post a comment coz dis blogger might get sm sunshine outta dat...
