Why craze for IIT's ?
Why this craze for IIT's ? Do they actually want/like to learn all the technical courses in all its mathematical rigor ? No ! Does India have enough jobs to employ people with the skill sets that IITs produce ? No ! Do people from IIT's actually take up careers in their core field ? No !! Correct me if I'm wrong here... If you have 100 people running a factory/enterprise/whatever try running it with 100 IITians !! most likely it fails to be a success. You need people who can design stuff/take decisions etc.. you also need people who can understand these designs and effect them. Any successful enterprise needs all kinds of engineers (not to forget other kinds of people)If everyone understands that any one kind are just different and not qualitatively better/worse than others, there should be no problem.
