Ragging: Govt Colleges vs Private Colleges

I was shifting from the School level to a collegiate one... my brother graduated from the most talked about college of this country and the college who owns the Star Performer of all the companies who hires engineer, that is Indian Institute of Technology, so disbelieving him was as stupid an idea as me myself.

Anyways,
In IITs, ragging is as hazardous as malaria, once you messed it, you will be in deep shit for a long long time, my brother narrated me a dozen stories about ragging in IIT and I used to have the fear of ragging since school.
Keeping that in mind, I played it very safe since my first day, and as a result of that, i became a dumb, speechless, tongue-tied, incoherent junior who only looked down due to fear of seniors, but I forgot that its no IIT, it is just a mediocre engineering college and your seniors are no star performers or entrance crackers, they are seniors only because they have born a year before than you did, 
I obeyed all the shittiest rule made by my seniors, only after watching the patterns for 6 months in this college, I find out that how exactly I should frame myself in this institutions, actually saying frame is inappropriate, in private college, one should be natural and fearless, seniors hardly have guts or authority to create problems for you neither they are going to help you with your degree. 

Our juniors learned it very earlier and the super juniors came with that natural and fearless essence.

we were the last Ragged batch of my college, I guess I believe.

    what i feel that ragging is not just a shit developed by the seniors, rather than it is a pathway that can transform you from maama's boy to a dude........
    no doubt you have a back ground which a mediocre will die for but when you look back to your own city, lots of students from govt. college are making out in engineering colleges every year and frankly speaking they don't have the charm a engineer should have.
    From very early age we had heard of words like ENGINEER SAHAB and believe me this is not the post that matters but the attitude. so ragging according to me is a pathway to transform the attitude of of a simple person to a engineer......
    and secondly i guess u have a 5-10 year old perception of iit.... and at that time ragging at colleges like bit sindri were havoc... so sincerely thanks to rule made by supreme court so that we all havent seen any such ragging case......

  2. I wont give you a disagreement dude.... Ragging is a great deal in a man's life... It has to exist in an engineer's life.. otherwise you wont have that X-factor...

    I just feel sad, that its not the same scenario in every college... In state universities, it is being a wastage...

    I plead to all...that please save the charm of ragging... its fun... its life
