    If you ever visit meerut

    Reshma, Its really aggravating to see 'moral policing' everywhere... a few days ago, there was an article in the local newspaper (Ahmedabad) talking about a high court judgement to stop various 'days' in colleges in Gujarat from being celebrated. And we all know what a big fuss is made about...

    If you ever visit meerut

    Well, I haven't seen girls being beaten, but cops in India do target couples. Its not possible for a girl to go out with a guy, especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

    No girl wants engineering

    I know what you mean. The number of girls taking up engineering in my college are very few. Anyway, the number seems to be increasing. Medicine seemed to be the norm in my school too, but I decided to go in for Computer Engineering, much to the shock of my friends, who still think girls cannot...

    Women earning more money than men

    I originally asked this question because a friend of mine turned down a job offer because she would earn more than her boyfriend does and this would upset him. She took up another job which she is not interested in. I guess this does not happen much outside India. Here, it is very rare to find...

    MSc. Bilogical Sciences-BITS,Pilani

    BITS Pilani is great...since you weren't keen on any particular branch of engineering, I think it would be a great option. But I'm a little confused. Do you have to do CIVIL/COMPUTERS/MECH/ELECTRONICS/IT and then an M.Sc. in Biological Sciences? What do the two have to do with each other...

    Terrorist Attack hits London, City on Alert

    Terrorist Attack hits London, City on Alert

    Why only obesity? Why not other illnesses? And by the way, i would neither want to be fat and unhealthy all my life nor die of a terrorist attack. Death by obesity is something you can control. I could have considered your point if you had said something like cancer. Sunayana I completely...
