About a month ago i appeared for a mock interview at my colg.
Aaahhhh....guys i luv interviews !-the ultimate platform to pursue my
hobby & propensity to 'talk n talk sense'.
But with vivas the case has always been different.
Ever since i started calling maslf engineer ,ive flopped in most of the
vivas as it really turns me off.I fail to understand how can two people talk
on something so boringly technical when there are better things in life n
grave concerns around you.???!!!
u all must hav noticed the 'GANDHIJI'S TALISMAN' at the beginning of
NCERT books(if u havent......SHAME ON U..hehe).
It says ''whenever you are in doubt or when the self becomes too much
with u,recall the face of poorest n weakest man & ask yourself if the step u contemplate
is going to be of any use to him.''
So before any viva i think of such a person & conclude that my studying
for viva wont be of any gud to him.so i drop the plan.
Back to mock interview:
The inquisitor after going through my resume was intrigued about my
participation in a technical contest for the benefit of women.
After throwing all the usual questions there came the gud one-"How
would you compare the condition of women in the middle east with that of
Since i didnt exactly know the answer i thought diplomacy would be best
policy.My answer was spontaneous,with full on expressions of a
'new -feminist -born -in -country' I said-"Every home has the same kitchen
& same old story.A woman is destined to cook & is burnt in the same fire.No
matter shes rich or poor,educated or uneducated she is still beaten up
by her husband in many homes today.Demarcating women as western or
eastern is not justified sir."
He gave me a smile which made me believe he must have cooked for his
wife that day!
That reminds me of the brouhaha in parliament over women reservation
bill which was finally passed in Rajya Sabha.I was of the belief that we
are a country setting classic examples of women acclaimed
internationally for their roles ranging from Mother India to Miss India.
& reservation seems to be like a ladder offered to crippled though there are
When this system understand that women DONT NEED RESERVATION
,THEY NEED RECOGNITION & MORE RESPECT.
Even a house wife needs to be recognised by her family coz not every girl
is Sania Mirza or Sonia Gandhi.
But the statement of Mr.Lallu Prasad Yadav & Mr. Mulayam Singh
Yadav has changed my mind.According to them reservation will favor
only higher class females & wont benefit Muslim females & other
Now i am in favour of reservation.
REASON:The reality is these despots are afraid of female power & afraid
to loose their election seat & would still consider females as a cow to produce bull
for the family.No doubt this bill will create fight in political parties as
daughters will start to take part in politics.Also they fear that they may not
have a strong female candidate at home.And about muslim females i dont think
they give a damn to it or else they could have given election tickets to some of them.
Now it is important that the bill comes in to effect based on economic
criteria & not on religion or caste ,not because women need one
but its show time now!!!
Let them know how much devastation women can make to the
unscrupulous men in this system.
As for me im planning to participate in another such technical innovative
contest for women & this time my idea is of a technology that will secure a woman.
When the girl feels unsafe she can press the button of a remote that produces an
electrical shield around her so that anyone who tries to interfere through the shield
will get an electric shock!!!!
P.S. :Guess what my male friends are not supporting my idea & they are dead against it.They say they dont wanna die coz of an electric shock! :D
