…asked Mr. Yashwant Kanetkar to all 8 of us. Yes, the famous Mr. Yashwant Kanetkar – author of very famous book on C programming language “Let Us C” & our guide for our final year engineering project. We were building Web Services – which was the hottest thing then.
There were following answers:-
#1 “MS In US” – 6
#2 “MBA” – 1
#3 “I don’t know” – 1
Why “MS in US?”, asked Mr. Kanetkar. “Don’t you want to stay back?”
The six who answered #1 were confused. None of them had thought about it. One of them volunteered to answer on behalf of the group –
“Sir, there’s lot of scope & opportunity in the US”
“..and we will come back as soon as we earn enough money”, added another.
Mr. Kanetkar smiled and looked that the guy with answer #3.
5/6 who had answered #1 are in the US and the remaining one is trying hard to go there.
Other two are doing pretty well, I guess.
