There was a time when Engineering was considered as one of the best careers in India to aspire. The craze was such that every other parent wanted their son to become an engineer. Who can forget 2009 Bollywood Blockbuster 3 Idiots, which had a great reference to the craze for engineering among people and loopholes in the education system?
