Why BE?

DISCLAIMER: Every rule has an expection!

Are you a BE (Bachelors of Engineering)?

If so, do a simple in-the-mind survey:
Out of you & your 9 fellow pass-outs,
1. Has anyone studied Mech and coding .NET?
2. Has anyone studied EC and working in Purchase?
3. Has anyone studied IT and doing recruitment?

So why do recruiters prefer BE?
Why do employers prefer BE?
Why is BE-requirement subsuming lots of job verticals/functions across different domains?

4 marks answer:

The entrance examinations, peer-pressure and unsolicited advice from Uncles and Aunties ensures that smarter individuals get into BE. There, you have the first level of artificial-filtration.

Pressure to perform:
With classmates doing well, with minimum 60% aggregate required for placement andor scholarship and/or foreign admissions, there is an unyielding committment (read as "by hook or crook"?) to score well so that the future isn't dark.

Enhanced Learning area of the brain:
Every 6 months (is it really 6 months, or should I say 4 months) or so, an individual has to erase 6 old subjects and; burn 6 new subjects. Thereby improving the individual ability to consume new stuff faster (but does the individual understand any of what's in it?)

For kick-arse men, it would be like juggling Girl-friends, Rock-shows, Exam scores and Personal finances all together. So, during the BE years, priortizing & de-prioritizing sub-routines are created. These may be modified slightly and invoked for execution later in life!

Satan's version of Murphy's law:
During BE if you didn't have a GF (for men) / BF (for women) then, there is and was something wrong about you!

Why do fathers-of-brides prefer BE?
Affluence, Prosperity, Job status!

Keep rocking

PS: Ofcourse, there are some 'boys' who after being dumped go in a negative downward spiral or whatever.


  1. a typical ECish language used. no points for guessing what you have studied in your BE.
