From a parent's perspective,an eighteen year old might make wrong choices if given complete freedom to choose a career.I am not in favour of forcing career on children because its children who has to live with it for the rest of their lives and they will not excel in something which they don't enjoy while studying or working....so peace of mind and enjoying what you are doing is more important so he should go for mass media if its what he will enjoy as career
Indeed.If he got into a premier engg college, it means he must have a good aptitude for it, nahi?
He's a brilliant kid. I'm sure he will do well in whatever he chooses.
Hmm.Basically its a bit of the solid "boring" stuff for 2 - 3 years till you hit the lode of cool interesting stuff in the 1 - 2 years at the end....so it can be bit of struggle for some people to get over that initial hump of foundation...some do drop out and go for more immediate creative pursuits.
Thats true. 1st year Engg results can also be equally discouraging.
Thanks Nilgiri. I think i will have to push him a lil.
True that.an engineer can always become a media person, but a media person can never become a engineer
I will suggest him that too.If engineering is a "must" switch to civil.
Thanks Anant.Do you like (passionately) Thermal engineering / Material Science / Stress Analysis?
I will put this across.
I'm sure this will help him take a decision
My advice will be, he should give full attention to mechanical engineering first and secure his/her future. And if by this time he/she has will, can go for part of time career in mass communication. It will keep him/her away from tensions while giving him/her good motivation. Thank you.
Yes. This is the advice most of my friends are giving me, to ask him not to quit engg, and pursue mass media later.
How did i miss this post?
Nai nai doctor nai...What if he has to perform a surgery and he ends up removing my liver instead of my kidney? Tauba!
