    I am exactly in that very situation. I still not have choosen eng but i am sure to have it within next 15 days. I am very much enthusiastic abt physics and want to pursure research in astrophysics. But, nobody supports me wholeheartedly. Furthermore money is easy in engineering.

    Its hard to find a good salary in pure physics. My advice is engineering. then you'll make enough that you have time and can afford to study pure physics on the side. So by NOT pursuing physics (at first) you might actually learn MORE physics in the long run. And a few extra dollars come in handy for other things, too.

    but though you say,for good salary etc,engineering is better,but once you finish your
    engineering ,can you get back to physics?can you put your interest at stake ,
    i mean i find science very good than engineering?
