Simple answer - No.
It was a scene of a college lab, without any standard 'medical equipments', even without any electrical power, attempting a complicated delivery.

All they tried to convey on the scene is to improvize and take decisions based on circumstances at hand.
If you get to a level above 'getting into the details of the process', may be you will see the point.

How does one identify a passion? How would you help your kid identify whether a interest is indeed something that can be pursued as a career? Or it could be a temporary craze or an infatuation (using this word for lack of other words) that would wane off after a couple of days?

To me, identifying a interest as passion at the right time is crucial. Is this the reason most of us end up taking the commonly tread path of professional degree, good job a la Raju, and may later become Roncho?

I am very interested in this field but not an expert as this needs few 'heads' to experiment it.I tried giving suggestions to some women in the past about their hair styling and even tried experimenting with my scissors on few!!. But most of my ideas are rather conventional/simple. To become famous I need to learn a lot to make those wiered look you see on movies!!.

I even thought of starting something in line with Great clips/Sports Clips but decided not to as
I have to learn lot and attend some professional training program before attempting.

Many times I faced the same issue, What is my passion? Even I get interested in many field and forget it after few days. But hair styling/int design/house keepikg/agriculture(spin farming) are the few area I am very much interested and think/read/do something. In my case it is multiple passion, god now how many more to come...kidding!!.

I am a Raju now and would like to become Roncho

I don't think that document came out of this thread. It is too confusing, except for the last page. It tries to explain a simple concept in an overly complicated way. Like the definition of a machine given by Chatur.

WHAT IF Rancho was punished by his land lord than letting him continue his studies?

would Rancho have completed his engg?

would Rancho still be having 400 patents at the end of the movie?

may be, may be not. speculation. umm

But yeah, the movie got me thinking. Thats why it was made. To make us think about this educational system. And we must agree it has succeeded in that part.

3 idiots is a refreshing movie, touching on something that hasn't been talked about much. But frankly, what's going to change in our society?

havent movies always told us to marry for love? havent movies told us about the corrupt politicians? not to give bribes? treat poor people with kindness?

Yet we enjoy the movies then go back to what we always have done.

Movies always show the good bad and ugly part of society in one form or another, a movie can be dark and serious to portray this and another can be funny. its just the way film makers defines it. 3 idiots could have been a serious art film, but then It was not going to break the Box office records.

Options depends on your knowledge level. The more you know more you will have options. Just observe keenly, and options are galore.

Agree on that. When you let others decide, this may happen.

Agree on that too. But before pursuing for money, pls decide how much u need. This will clarify many things.

Saw this movie yesterday.

My two cents - one of the message of the movie is about freedom. Freedom from goals and targets, freedom from fear, freedom from expectations, freedom from success. Once one is free, deeds are not tied to its fruits. Probably not something new, well explained in chapter 3 of Gita.

:
- The 'balaatkaar' scene -
- Loved the XC90 scenes and the roads.

This scene is not offtopic at all. It shows the result of mugging-up without understanding.

Reminds me of an incident that happened in 1988:

In electronics lab, we are expected to experiment with one electronic circuit every week. Sometimes the lecturers give us the circuits, rest of the time they expect us to get it ourselves. Now, when I say get it ourselves, they obviously don't mean design it ourselves (god forbid), instead get it from seniors.

This particular week, the circuit was Bistable Multivibrator. Forget kinky thoughts, it is just a transistor version of a J-K flip-flop. Damn, I can't believe I can still remember this stuff. Oh, I didn't mug-up this stuff, that is why.

Another team from my class had already completed this circuit test successfully, so I borrowed the circuit from them. This team (of girls) were the master mug-pots of the class, they could mug-up anything they laid their eyes on.

As was my practice, I started analysing the circuit. I visualized the voltage input, and started imagining the effect like a chess move. But I hit a snag. No matter how much I tried, I couldn't deduce the final expected output. I could see the first transition, but not the reverse transition of the flip-flop. After trying everything for an hour, I took it to my favourite lecturer, the one who is capable of analysis.

Me: Sir, does this circuit work? If yes, how?
Lecturer: [Casually looks at the familiar circuit] Yes, it does. Everybody is using the same circuit for this test.
Me: Ok, then explain me how it works.

This lecturer knew I wouldn't say this casually, so he starts analysing the circuit. After 5 minutes, he leans back in wonder.

Lecturer: No this doesn't work. Where did you get this circuit?
Me: I got it from them.

I pointed to the other team who were in the same staff room talking to another lecturer. By the scared sideward glance they were giving me, I realised they were entirely aware of the drama unfolding at this lecturer's table.

Me: I got it from them because they successfully tested and got the nominal voltage reading.
Lecturer: Aha... Hello ladies, please come here.. come, come, come.

All three gingerly walk towards, with a guilty look. Their lead girl looked crestfallen.

Lecturer: So, did you complete testing this circuit?
lead girl : Yes sir...
Lecturer: This particular circuit?
lead girl : Yes sir...
Lecturer: And it worked?
lead girl : Um...
Lecturer: Tell me young lady, did it really work?
lead girl : We tried very hard, even the teaching assistant worked very hard with us. But we could never get it to work.
Lecturer: But your lab record book says it worked.
lead girl : Um.. finally the teaching assistant took pity on us and provided the expected voltage readings. We really worked very hard sir.
Lecturer: It didn't work because the circuit is wrong. Now give me your record books.

He scratched out that experiment from all the 3 record books and asked them to repeat the whole experiment with the right circuit.

lead girl : We got the circuit from the senior record book.
Lecturer: Well, it is too late to scratch out their record book.

So, this is how "learning" happened in my days. People just memorised the circuits and re-produced them in the labs and exams. If it didn't work in the lab, it was considered an anomaly and nominal values were provided by the lab instructor. And if you tried to be original and produced a working but unfamiliar circuit, you would get a big zero for that sincere effort.
