Every youth in this country aspires to become either a doctor or an engineer one day. While growing up all these aspirations shatter to pieces. As you grow up you realize that science is not the wonderful thing it always seemed. If you can’t fucking remember the atomic number of Platinum then you don’t have a fucking right to be in science. Yes, science is all about cramming up. Rarely do Indian institutions give a chance to the students to utilize their brains. You bloody mug up and you get through to IIT. What about those who see science not as a mere subject but as a never ending source of joy. What about those who don’t want to study science just for the purpose of earning money? India’s education system is fucked up. If you don’t get 90%+ marks then you are not fit to get a good job. What about those fucking people who can’t cram and yet have a genuine liking towards science. Do they just accept defeat and rot? I bloody am fed-up of this whole system. What I share with you is my own case. I have a genuine interest in maths, physics and computer. But even if I grow two more balls I can’t cope up with chem. So what the fuck should I do? Should I give up my dream of studying the sciences? I can’t even think of getting into IIT because of my chemistry marks. Is this fair? I bloody try all my best cramming up Chemistry but in the end I just can do it. I fail and then my parents shout at me. What am I supposed to do if my memory isn’t so good? Should I just give up on life? Because in the end if I have to study anything except Science I may just as well end my life. Do the people who teach at India’s Premier Institutions ever look at their surroundings and wonder about all the science in them. The protons, neutrons, electron and other particles. I fucking do and I wonder how it all works. I yearn to question the basic facts of life and nature. Doesn’t this fucking question count? Don’t I at least deserve to get my answers? Does anybody fucking care about a fucking nobody? So I bid Fucking Adieu to the bullshit happening in India. Does anybody dare to raise a voice?
