A story with a moral..with a message... It was the demand of this time. Hope it will be an eye opener for all students who roam here even during exam times(Disclaimer - I didnt mean anyone in specific, it was just a general statement
) But what make me clap for this is
this is similar to my experience -with minor changes.
I agree with your protagonist - But I cannot disagree with the interviewers too.. I say that from my personal experience. Now after being successful in my career, when I look back ,I don't see any value for the 4 years I spent in BTech degree.Bcs except for some basics and the final certificate.
I am not doing anything which I learned there..All I am today ,good or bad, everything is due to what i learned from my life and work.I cannot believe that I really had to waste 4 years of my life to get that piece of paper which is the main topic of this story
But you are true Sajjal - Without that paper,I was nothing..I shouldnt have been anything. and life had shown that truth to me - when I was declined my offer at the last round of interview ,just because I couldn't produce the final marksheet - just because it was lost in university itself due to some clerk's utter negligence..
For the interview board, whatever talent I could display during all rounds, whatever answers I gave couldnt replace that one piece of paper... Harsh reality of the real world...
Having said all these, can we really blame interviewers and world for being so harsh? I cannot.
The paper is just a proof of our talent,brilliance and hardwork.. BUT A VISIBLE AND MEASURABLE proof... I guess it will continue to be same - until someone invent some machine to see through someone's real talent
,and I really don't have any complaint for that.
So much for a comment, huh?
But hope it makes up for not commenting on Tumhe haq hain nowadays..Im too lazy to comment nowadays..
