And Thats About Engineers
September 15th is the day in India which will ring the bell of pride in every engineer’s ears as we celebrate the engineers day. The time has gone when somebody really honored this degree. Today the country possess thousands of engineering colleges and produces lakhs of Engineering graduates every year such that it has become quite natural you see an engineer in every family. Now the country has reached to such a position that you will find engineers doing the marketing job or making a call in some call centers. Still they would go for it because this will pay them higher than what they can achieve as an engineer. A fresher software engineer in India earns a salary of around 6000 per month while a person in a call center will get around 10,000. At least you don’t have to clear all those aptitudes and group discussions to get into a call center. The increasing number of engineering colleges in India in a way helps students to get educated but at the same time put them into trouble after they graduate. Hence the competition becomes tough, in fact very tough for these individuals to prove their skills to get into some MNC Company.
The time was different years ago, when Engineering meant to be that form of art which forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human needs and quality of life. The engineers’ day which commemorates birthday of the legendary engineer of India Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya was internationally recognized for his genius in harnessing water resources. He was responsible for the successful design and construction of several river dams, bridges and the implementing irrigation and drinking water schemes all over India.
But now with the emerging engineering colleges every year the standard gets sink. This year with the theme of “Making Indian Engineering World-class” let’s hope our engineers get recognized internationally and lets prove to the world once again that we Indians are a prodigy.
