Attitude Defines Your Altitude

 I was introduced to this concept long back when I was in class 9. There was a presenter on stage who showed us the following image: Skills are something that people around you can see and judge you with. Attitude is invisible. It is only when people take a dive deep into you, do they realize how worthful you actually are. It took me more than 10 years to realize the importance of this. Let me begin with a story. Three interns - 1 boy and 2 girls were hired for my team and I was their mentor. In their first few weeks, they were required to go through their technical training. The first course was Frontend - something that is tricky but still software engineers find it unworthy and an insult to their skills. They were required to work on it for the next 2 weeks and submit their assignments to me for review. One of the girls was extremely enthusiastic. She submitted the assignment within 3 days. I reviewed it, provided feedback, and asked to improve the code (optimization and readability

Teachers' Day

 Hey There! Welcome! India celebrates Teachers' Day on 5th September. Who has been your favourite teacher this year? For me, it has been Coronavirus and probably for many of you too.

Recursive Subroutine

 There is something very strange about the concept of love. Sometimes it feels like I am never learning from my mistakes. The only thing that I have is realization. This time, I realize that I am falling for a catastrophe. The consequences are going to leave a deep scar. I can forsee the future. There is nothing that I going to get except for pain. I will be wasting a lot of time on it. I will be wasting a lot of efforts. I have already watched thousands of motivational videos on YouTube that talk about why you should only love yourself. I was also motivated by them. I had taken an oath to never walk on that same path again. I was committed to focus only on my goals. Nobody cares! Really! No one in this world is concerned for you. Everyone is running their own race. Everyone is the protagonist of the movie that is reeling on their brain. Who has got the time to cheer for others, to support others in their difficult times, or to even care for their existence? If nobody cares for me, why
