"I am the best"--no more:)

The title refers to the song "I am the best" by SRK from Phir bhi dil hai hindustani..
I realised while talking to a friend that IIT teaches you one good thing for sure..that you are not the best..all of us here, have been mostly school toppers etc etc before coming here..so there is a feeling of being no 1..IIT sure takes that out of u as it punches you in the face with so many people who are smarter and better than you...love this institute for taking all my air out and making me humble about everythng..and making me able enuf to accept losing and even appreciate the people who defeat me..
(reference reference to the ITC interview..still hurts a bit:D:D..will blog about it later)

hmmmm... i had to think quite a lot about this one... i wud definitely agree that "i am the best" is pushing it too far and it is interesting to see that IIT is making u humble...

at the same time, the big lesson that school & life taught me is that there are skills far greater than what can be taught in school that are required to make one successful. while i don't have the context of the ITC interview, the only "gyaan" i can share is that for ur next interview, don't present who u are and what you know. instead focus on who they want and what they want them to know. IQ/CGPA/problem solving/grades/projects et al are no measures of smarts....
