Heil Karmalkar !!!

If there was one thing I was not satisfied with in IIT , it was the teaching. Many of the 'profs' seemed to look upon teaching as a burden . Then entered the charming , handsome stud Device Modelling prof Dr Shreepad Karmalkar . Its a pleasure listening to him and he is the perfect ' model ' of what a prof should be . Some of his gems ...

' Life is just a set of iterations. You try something out , check if it works , and then iterate to get something better'

'Modelling is like a game of chess . Just knowing how each piece moves does not ensure that you can win the game. You slowly develop expertise and improve your game. '

'What is understanding ? Understanding is knowing what is important and what you can ignore to simplify your problem. '

I'd forgotten to turn my phone off one class, and the phone rang. My prof began to dance a jig in front of the class and exclaimed that he liked my ring tone and asked if I could transfer it to him. Hehe. That's the kind of profs I've got :D

My word verification word for today - fckedof. Haha. Okay, I'll shut up now.
