5 guranteed ways to prove yourself as an epitome of capablity in VIT Vellore. 

In a tier-one private engineering college, EVERYONE you will meet is CAPABLE and if by any chance you aren’t, here are 5 guranteed ways to boost up your “capablity quotient” or atleast depict so.. 😉 

 Tried and tested, these methods are being adopted and recommended on a daily basis by professionals from all branches of Btech. These methods are for all genders present. 

1) Attend a MUN. Make sure you have ZERO idea about what is being debated. Mandatorily post a pic on FB, wearing formals. 

Guranteed Success with atleast 200 likes and reactions, more if there is an opposite sex in the pic!!

All your friends from previous school will get to know how you are “rocking” in college and that you have such a vast and diverse intellect. 

2) Be a part of atleast 5 ‘unique’ club or chapter (which you would be choosing from a set of  50, and which will be having atleast 100 other “unique” members). Mandatorily write “Chapter head/VP/General secretary.. blah blah..  at XYZ” in your bio description at Facebook. 

Method tested at various instances. Special results if people visit your profile. Added benefits, if combined with an MUN wala dp.

3) If you are rich, join a team, go to US/UK/Zimbabwe… for a competition, lose in it, post pics with taglines as “Believe in your dreams”, “Florida ain’t that far”, “Hardwork paid off”…. and so on… 

Good method. Slight drawback- majorly for people born with a silverspoon stuffed up there golden asses. 

4)In TT (technology tower) gallery, you have a standing desk for speakers, the desk has microphones attached and VIT written on the front. Ask your friend to take pictures with you standing, as if giving a speech. Make it your DP with some random inspirational quote. 

Can get a decent response. Good method for freshers.Make sure to take the pictures when no one is in the gallery and just try to pose, a real life public speech may make you shit in your pants, I assure you that a picture of it won’t be lovely. 

5) As many random “candids” as possible. Preferably with opposite sex. Wear formals as much as possible. If you are a 4th year student, try and act boss,especially in front of first years, even when you know that in actual you have the smallest balls possible. 

It works.
I rest my case. 

No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be; 
Am an attendant lord, one that will do 
To swell a progress, start a scene or two, 
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool, 
Deferential, glad to be of use, 
Politic, cautious, and meticulous; 
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse; 
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous— 
Almost, at times, the Fool.
~T.S Eliot

“Why don’t we just accept it?”

Our education system needs to change from a system of grades to a system of goals.

Years back, I met a guy who disliked biology. Even though he belonged from a family of doctors, he had absolutely no interest in the subject.

Under family influence he decided to take up the subject during his plus two. During his plus two he was seen claiming a sudden love for the subject. Yes, the same guy who ran away by mere name of mitochondria was proclaiming that his auricles and ventricles underwent systolic and diastolic phases only for biology.

He suddenly had an unprecedented love for MBBS and said that he wanted to become a surgeon. 
Anyways, unable to clear any competitive examination for MBBS or even BDS he decided to take up biotechnology in an engineering college. 
Now, there was shift in his life goals. He suddenly started loving micro bioengineering and his fb timeline was evidently flodded with posts claiming how technology is changing the medical field.

Few hours back, an acquaintance of mine told me that the same guy has joined a management institution and is about to do healthcare management.

From a biology hater to a biology lover, then from a  surgeon to an engineer and finally to healthcare care management, thats how our life goals change.

No problem with that, but the thing is that why don’t we just accept that the only aim we have is for a settled peaceful life  A life in which we can boast our monetary gains. A life which gives us enough of materialistic love.
It doesn’t matter which field of study gives us that. 
Why proclaim a love that we never had? Why be such a hypocrite?

Majority of our goals are society and family induced. As a kid in a school, I don’t remember any session which specifically stressed the need for us to understand our life goals.

Majority of us chose careers which, at the time, seemed the best to give us a settled a life. Be it engineering or medical.

Accept it.
