IIT: Learnings do help

As proud I feel to be an IITian the more humble I feel to work harder to do something in life. There have been lessons I have learnt all the way along and don't know why but feel responsible to bring about a change. The aim is to do better for the people for our people. There is a dire need in our society of people who are willing to come forward and work for the people and I have no hesitation to be one of them. The attitude is more important than aptitude I realize and feel the truth in it more than ever. The attitude is to be positive with all the cynics and their ideas floating around. The attitude is reach there where I see my goal is and few unnecessary views/opinions and negatives vibes and energy have to be brought to their knees at any cost. If you find a disconnect between these and guessing why this blog lies in IIT life I have explanations. The explanation is IIT experience has taught me to get the work done, the importance of work is the top priority there. I can't just resist to think after living with those multi-talented individuals that they should escape the responsibility they have towards the society. I feel proud to be one of them maybe not talented as some of the others were, without any intentions to boast about myself I feel IIT has helped me realize that I have it in me to go out there, work hard and bring about a change. I want to do that even if people don't see me doing it I want to give it my best. I feel the people need us. A growing realization has to be there to accept the changes that are sweeping this world. India just can't afford to sit back and ignore. Technology, management and stong democratic government are the talk of today and we as citizens have a role. The optimization of resources to maximize our potentials, innovative and newer ways to conserve and deliver more, get above our inhibitions and to welcome continuous learning is a need of the hour. The youth has to play the role but it's people of all ages that need to realize and adapt to these changes. When I see people outside IIT a bit slower than people inside to be slower to adapt to these changes it makes me think there in lies the difference and there in lies the opportunity to bring about the change. That's where I would like to give credit to IIT. The atmosphere, the air has the pace to change and adapt than the world outside. Now when I see the outside world I can understand it much better. Maybe IITians are brilliant in themselves but there is no reason why the rest around can't pick themselves up and do simple things right. As an IITian I have learnt quite a lot from the people who are non-IITians. The only difference is the time ie I find the non-IITians to become wiser when they grow old. Maybe this is a controversial statement to make but you can discard as my personal take. Anyways the whole view the whole perception the whole realization and understanding makes me feel the IIT experience worth living it. Because I am not sure how good a technical institute it is but for me it definitely taught me more than a thing or two about life and it makes me feel good when I see much more sensible, practical, cool and mature approach towards different situations in life. The one year after IIT has made me realize that. And a person like me who has been a critic all the way when was an IITian that is the one of the big positives I see and would like to credit IIT life for it
