What to learn from 3 Idiots:
- NO to Suicide. People should understand that suicide causes pain to everyones loved ones and is not the way out.
- Do not mug, understand! That way it is easier to apply the concepts, and even gives rise to innovation.
- Never get too snobbish - Money isnt everything, and never will be. Also, use of power and money to get your way is incorrect. You dont know who the other person might be. Money is good, for buying cars and feeding your family. But it is not a sign of happiness or success. Never!

I said I kept looking for options... how is that one way? Options means any number of possibilities.

Talking

For Pete's sake its a movie! Real life is more exciting

Patch Adam's anyone? same same though Munnahai was really inspired.

The whole USP in nostalgia, people just love to go ga ga over college life, once in a while. Formula works in almost all languages

EDIT: I voted for Raju, earn any degree get a decent job, rest you can pursue once you are "set" - ok this one is the easy way out he he

IMO Once we are "set" in life we generally Play Safe by not entering into new ventures or taking big risks.

Farhan Akhtars Lakshya is one of my favi's.
The Character of ritik, Nver knew what he want to do in life.

Ritik: I have decided , i will join army.
Friend: sorry i am going to US for MBA
Ritik: What?? What will I do in army alone?
Ritik: OK, MBA will take how much of time?

That is what the current generation is going through.
Finally after a personal setback, He shows his determination and become a Army officer.

In India, a person who catches snakes for wild-life/medical research is more likely to be called a snake-charmer than a scientist.
My favourite work is hair styling, imagine what people call me if I get in to this field.

My Friend is working as a Hair Stylist in LimeLite Bangalore. In two years time he was regarded as the best hair stylist of LimeLite in South India. He is the official hair stylist of many Kannada and Tamil film stars.

1) I think nobody loves to end his life, but what if there are no options left. Life is not fair as we can see in India itself. This also extends to entire world. If one tries hard, but does not get success then ?

I think suicide is perfectly justified for humans who, despite trying hard and giving their best, are not able to get desired success. If one puts his/her foot in their shoe, one realizes how much pressure and stress they have.

But there are better means. One book really helps is " Peaceful Pill Handbook ". One of the best book I have ever read. The Peaceful Pill Handbook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also one must use Exit bag for this purpose. Exit bag :
Suicide bag - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



2) It is easier, but do we really have time considering so many concepts ? We have to cover such a large base of study. Its not impossible if from begenning i.e. since KG or 1 standard the education style is changed.

3) Then what is ? Practically speaking, money is almost everything. Only thing above wealth is health. Else you can buy anything you want. Happiness also. People bring topic of love, but the faster one forgets love, the better.

I agree that using power and money is wrong, but its done practically all over and those who use it negatively are happy.
