People at IISc beware…

People working at IISc beware. Your work is at stake. For students in engineering colleges are already into research work and are doing things in less than 6 months, things that you took more than 5 years to complete.

Shocked?

I am. Students in engineering colleges are already presenting papers and doing research work, that too within 6 months! Is it that the “Homo Sapiens” have evolved into some new class, “Homo Sapiens II”, whose new identity is that they do things at an alarming rate? Clearly, the problem of info glut is showing up.

Students in engineering colleges particularly those in computer science are shifting from one domain to the other more rapidly than politicians changing parties. They start off on a new domain today and within 6 months I hear that they have won a prize in a paper presentation contest.

How can this happen? How can a person, who is new to a domain, learn the subject and then present a new idea in less than 6 months? Is it humanely possible?

Anyone listening?
