"Time to enjoy guys", a huge noise came out from our seniors' classes. Our college had planned to conduct a huge event with a theme "Are we really worthy to be engineers ???"

It was just a week since I started my college life and so I couldn't interact much with any person over there. Many educationalist and entrepreneurs had come to that event. It was a three day event. First day was the time for speakers to share their ideas. Many people spoke well. They inspired me a lot. But all the second, third and final year students were just enjoying the day and many even didn't attend that event. Second day it was the time for students to express their ideas. A student from final year stood up voluntarily to express his idea but many students just made fun of him. In spite of all the opposition, he managed to convey a huge message which made all his teasers to shut their mouths and all the coordinators were also in a complete shock.

He started speaking from a flashback. "I'm the son of an army man. My uncle too served the Indian army at the LOC. But he couldn't work till his retirement as his left leg was damaged in an accident during a training section. When he spoke with my dad, he said that he had several financial problems in his life but he didn't worry about any such matters. The only sadness in his life was that he couldn't serve the nation. My mom too had pressurized my dad to leave his job. But whenever my mom said so, my dad's only answer was that he knew thousands of ways of earning money but none of those would bring him happiness as this job gave him. So he should not be compelled."

"Nowadays we only talk about fundamental rights but not about our fundamental duties. Our first fundamental duty is to respect and help our nation savers. There are several people who work in the army and become handicapped and cannot continue their service to the nation. We are all engineers. We must make some sort of a suit which safeguards the whole body and which is comfortable to wear." Thus he put forward his idea.

The last event was to choose the best idea from all the ones that had been shared. The guy's idea that I had mentioned earlier was the winner. That idea was taken to board of Indian engineers club and engineers from various fields across India joined hands and made a design of such a suit within a month.

There are several engineers who are jobless. It doesn't mean that they are useless. In fact they are used less. Let us all use our knowledge to help our life protectors.

Jai Hind
