The most depressing part is that IITians can never reach their full potential in any big or small thing.
This is where 90% of IITians will end up:
- Middle level job in a cubicle farm in a very large company where nobody cares for themÃ‚Â even when they are fully capable of starting a company or organization that can change not just their country but the world.
- Living in no-name suburban sprawl in USA/India watching stupid TV channelsÃ‚Â in a middle class home even when they can afford to live in the world’s best cities and get a chance to imbibe the best entertainment civilization can offer.
- Eating home-made food every day and every nightÃ‚Â even when essentially any cuisine in the world is available to them
- Getting arranged married to a girl/boy from small-town-IndiaÃ‚Â when pretty much any girl/boy in the world can be theirs (if they just invest even 10% of effort they invest in their stupid CGPA)
Most of us IIT-ians live an insecure life constantly worrying about grades, money, achievements and time without realizing how lucky we are in all four.
