“One needs to get into a really good college, because that is what gives you a job assurance.”
“Only few colleges have trust – worthy placement records.”
“Once a part of an IIT, you can expect a 7 – digit salary. Forget it otherwise!”
“A healthy competition means IITs: be it before, during or after the college days.”
“B.Tech is the basic education one needs to have, in order to seem literate enough. Other courses like B.Sc are losing their value.”

I personally don’t feel achieving even the most sought -after goal without any self – interest would bring any better hopes to one’s future. Why not invest your body, mind and time into something that fascinates you? This way, you won’t think of your work as a burden or a task to be finished off.
Before you start regretting the decision taken by your younger – self,
