How is your GATE preparation

Dear all,
I hope, everyone is preparing well for GATE. If I scold anyone in the class please do not take it personally. I want you people not to waste one more year and at least with my words you will prepare well and will settle in your life quickly.

With these situations only, I am scaring to say anything in the class. Hope you will understand my feelings and my passion about students. I think it doesnt  looks good to speak anything other than waveforms in class. (Of course I am paid for only waveforms) But I came to this profession not to work as money making machine. I came here to give good engineers to India. Hope you will be part of that group. Kindly do not ask me any suggestions to go for abroad. I am not the correct person to guide that

If anyone demotivated and depressed about my words and my class, I am extremely sorry for that

With best wishes,
your electrical mentor

About mentor in our life

Dear All,
I would like to share few thoughts in my mind.
When I was in student stage, I thought that if we donate some of our earnings to poor students, it will be a great serving to the community. Because I struggled a lot even to buy a book of Rs 500/- also. Entire my education was carried out with scholarships and in govt colleges. I didnt know how coaching centers also, I am seeing these classes as a faculty only whether you believe or not
After I got job, as per my wish, I used to give some donations to charity trusts and some poor students. But, I am not getting satisfaction because I have not seen worth in that.
What I felt is giving some money or food will not help. If you give some guidance to the people, it will change their life rather than giving food or money. With this intention only, I left my job and entered into this student community as mentor.

When I was referring today's EENADU Sunday magazine after coming from class (of course it is Telugu version), I am very happy about my step. Our blog name is also perfect match
I would recommend everyone of my blog users to read this article. (Sorry for non Telugu guys)

I strongly believe we will have good career and future if we have good mentor in our life. Try to find good mentor from your friend, teacher, parents or end for this list

And also do mentoring for your next generation and contribute for the development of society. I am seeing lot of happiness in doing this

With best wishes,
Your electrical mentor
