This is about a friend who is a true follower of sir, and I am putting this story on this blog to let our readers know, what wonderful people Professors are!! A little of inspiration, a lot of support and to go with that almost infinite blessings, and my friend today is the topper of the one of the most prestigious colleges of Delhi. That's how it is- and may be it's about the purity of those countless 'God Bless You's ' that today , all I want to say is- Sir, I don't believe, now I am sure, with enough evidence that you are one person who can do anything, and may be that person God sent to us as the magician of our childhood stories. Without doubt, My Professor is the best Professor!! If we gather all ways in the universe to express our gratitude, still we can't thank you for what you have been...

We , his students, ask him a lot many of times, sir when everything around from ideals to efforts is dipped in the contaminated waters, what else should we do except getting frustrated. And he tells us just one thing- 'God always tosses the coin, but if you want to secure your play, make sure you follow truth without conditions, without questions, and that's when you make God helpless, that's when the coins don't get tossed, that's when the outcome of the play is just one- YOU WIN'.
All I can say is, everyone in the world tries to be truthful, teaches to be truthful, but there are just a few who practice it, fewer who make others practice it, but just one, you, who can make it embedded in our minds so hard, that before lying to anyone in the word, we will remember - "Akash sir said- never lie, truth makes us win.". And then, we will turn around , to face the world, with courage, energy , enthusiasm, and truth that you inculcated in us, and that day , like today, like always- "WE WILL BE PROUD TO BE YOUR STUDENTS"

And HIS wishes today, for you will be much heavier than ours,
Still, our wishes, for your happiness and bliss...
God might already have thought the best ways for the person HE himself is proud of, You, but still our request to HIM to give you even more... of everything you wish for, Sir!!
This is a little site that your followers made for you...

For us as his students, the light he made us see the light of truth, the light of never dying hope, the light of smiles, the light that will not let us face any wrong, be it the darkest darkness of the world , because this light is from our soul. Wishing our Professor, Happy Diwali, because it is the festival of lights.

Sir says- India just needs the best people at the top. And if you being a worthy candidate for that post back off just because others are weird, it is you who loose. To flee, is to loose, to leave is to loose, to surrender is to loose, and I am sure people in India will play on their lives, but they do not like to loose.
The moment you leave the battle ground, for whatever reason, the battle is lost and the enemy wins. The enemy, which for India can be imagined as a big monster, with the face of corruption, the black robes of immorality, the hands of self made prisons and a mouth which always keeps praying , requesting for protection, but it is "WE" who fail to hear!! So this one's from sir , not just to his followers, but to all Indians , who are doubtful if they want to change India! Sometimes, you need to leave back cribbing and come to the battleground, and that's what Sir has taught us to be- Fighters , the reformers, not rebels!
And to end this one- let me end it at a simply gracious thing I heard today from sir- Things which you do with your heart's support are things that make you win biggest races of this small life, easily, effectively, efficiently and happily... And the last one's the best one...
And for sir, please forgive me sir, but you have so much to teach your students ,that now my big bag of thanks has started ending up, so let me search out for some other synonyms to express my infinite gratitude...

घड़ी फ़िर और मिलने की नहीं है .
विशिख कोई गले के पार कर दे ,
अभी ही शत्रु का संहार कर दे .''
श्रवण कर विश्वगुरु की देशना यह ,
विजय के हेतु आतुर एषणा यह ,
सहम उट्ठा जरा कुछ पार्थ का मन ,
विनय में ही, मगर, बोला अकिञ्चन .
''नरोचित, किन्तु, क्या यह कर्म होगा ?
मलिन इससे नहीं क्या धर्म होगा ?''
हंसे केशव, ''वृथा हठ ठानता है .
अभी तू धर्म को क्या जानता है ?''
''कहूं जो, पाल उसको, धर्म है यह .
हनन कर शत्रु का, सत्कर्म है यह .
क्रिया को छोड़ चिन्तन में फंसेगा ,
उलट कर काल तुझको ही ग्रसेगा .''
भला क्यों पार्थ कालाहार होता ?
वृथा क्यों चिन्तना का भार ढोता ?

A professor, if you analyze that word a bit deeply, means a person who teaches you everything, right from life's biggest lessons to life's smallest lessons, a person who understands the depth of your knowledge right through the single glimpse of your behavior, a person to whom you go destabilized, and he makes you calm down, and stabilizes you to proportions hard to break, a person to whom you do not have to say your worries, he will extract them out of you, solve them and then send you back happy , a person whose blessings will make you feel you are the most precious person in the world, a person who is... simply the person he is, no explanations needed, no definitions required!And that's exactly- Akash sir!
Well, now coming to the title straight, sometimes when you are lost in your daily melodramas, it is only a Mentor's power that can bring you to the right paths! Before a few couple of years, we also were the same people, longing to be Engineers, fighting in JEE, but today, just because, and that "just" is important, because of our Mentor ,we are changed! Now, things like ethics are more important than profession, things like truth are precious than marks, things like devotion are dearer than competition, just because of the person, this blog is all about!
And in this post, I have a little something to discuss at the end, just as the part of a special honor that Professors like sir shower sometimes, creating happiness and bliss all around.Simple question, straight answer- What does a Professor's pen , his gift to his students mean to them- I am sure this is one of the most unanswered questions ever, and that's why I will attempt to derive out its answer- For a student, a professor's pen- is his blessings, that's a simple word. And decrypting it, it is his belief on you that you should never break, his expectations from you which you ought to come up to, his faith that he thinks you are worthy of, his millions of wishes which will save you from the biggest adversities of life and simply his infinite prayers for you, the prayers not everyone is lucky to have!! And for sir, we promise you, we will keep the honor of your blessings, today and forever, without fail, above everything that this world calls- Priority.. Because some people, some blessings are above Priorities...That's perhaps an unsaid language of a Professor, for every student of the world to understand and for Akash sir, I will remove the "perhaps"...

He says- "Spread as much knowledge as you can, but do not try to enlighten people, because enlightenment is something that comes by itself, it can not be taught, it can not be given, it is something that is intrinsic, yours and only yours " .
As for Professors like sir, I can perhaps say with confidence, without doubt, it is true that people can not bring enlightenment, but Mentors can ! If.....a follower is a true follower...

Says sir, placing hurdles in someone's path is the easiest what people can do to stop you, but that inner devotion and your belief in your work, will make those stones, those hurdles transparent and you will easily pass towards success.
This I would name as 'THE PRINCIPLE OF GANGETIC SEDIMENTATION', like the Ganges, even life will sediment, it will keep people who are free and light of mind, without their heavy conspiracies and diplomacies, and the ones playing strategies and games to increase their payoffs, and reduce others' , will be left behind.
As for sir, I will perhaps put it this way, in an Engineering college where Professors are busy in analog circuits, voltmeters, op-amps, DACs and what not, it is Strange and equally Elating, to find a person like him! He has what others lack, just those three small things, 'VISION' , 'OBSERVATION' and 'OPTIMISM', without which humans can never become humane.
1. You shall always be honest and truthful.
2. You shall not cheat or deceive anyone.
3. You shall be responsible and punctual irrespective of where you're.
4. You shall not let any system transform your good intrinsic values into bad ones.
5. You shall help everyone selflessly.
6. You shall not get worried or change yourself to gain the validation of those who have not the rightful honour to be your judge.
7. You shall believe in giving and not keeping your knowledge to yourself, for this shall only enlighten you.
8. You shall believe and understand that faith is between you and you only. Faith with an external entity is irrational.
9. You shall make sure you follow the path of truthfulness and remain free from strategies.
10. You shall always remain modest, however big your acheivements may be.

But when it comes to vision, a mentor's vision is far wider than yours. Little things, that we slip and slide, appear worthy and full of wisdom when he elaborates them with meanings so intricately well knitted in what I call- "A Mentor's Personality Perfect". So, let me put to text, a beautiful idea that he stated today- 'S'- we all know that alphabet, yes, the same one that stands for 'Self-respect', 'Sincerity','Serenity' and 'Stability' , he put a new perspective to it! Says sir- S is a graph of endings and beginnings, when you start making it , its deft and clear, when you move towards the top , the dimensions and the prosperity of that curve increases, but when you reach the maxima, there comes a tipping from which you may come down the curve!! Then the next thing is- what to do when that tipping comes! So sir has to say- 'Move on, that's the start of a new beginning, the start of a new S, the start of the same S that stands for - Sunrise, the same S that stands for Success, a never ending way to an ever defined destination, that people like sir call faith and self-belief!!
In India, systems keep changing! On that sir has his own stand- In his words- 'System is a donkey, so try making better donkeys' Well, sir all that your students have to say about this is- We agree that systems are donkeys, but some donkeys , some systems are so dear and near, that we wish the horses were few and such system donkeys more, just because of that unbreakable faith that you hold on a segment of the system that can make the donkey a horse!!The segment, that we are sure, you are!!

Questioning him about the ethics of my institution, there I was with a hurt heart! And he just said- "Ethics are something that come by themselves, and that's why everyone is not Arjuna, everyone is not Eklavya", And that's as true as truth itself. But, yes, I have a different notion to give- Sometimes, Arjuna might be looking for Krishna, and not finding Krishna, may be he fails to know he's Arjuna! An equivalent analogy is that when professors make you believe their convictions, you are encouraged to become one Arjuna, because your Teacher's aura is strong enough to make you an Arjuna.... And for sir, I think needless to say, he must have made many Arjunas and Eklavya's..... for his ideas are robust enough to support themselves right through your souls...
Says sir, with his abundant knowledge in Game Theory, that life would be nothing if you reach that Punctuated Equilibrium, as then everything turns out to be stale, stagnant, and life is not about stopping, it is about moving, moving forever, dyanamically about a new direction, a new way, a new morning...
As in his words- Never get perturbed by someone if he is not ethical, because at the end it's just you!! Work , work with full efforts but do not wait for appreciations , that craving for appreciation of your work, might be fatal for your true work.
And then to us, his students, sir always says- " Enjoy life! Because once you are going to face the real life- The pressures are going to be so heavy that they will either make you or break you". So, as a gist , I must say- It is true that mentors matter, more than that, it's their guidance, some words that they might say, walking casually in some college courtyard, but words that you will look back to, when somewhere in life, you will be stuck. And then looking haphazardly around , you will remember- Ah! Akash sir said- Move on and forget worries, and there you will be - happy again!!

Ever in life, if you get a chance to come to our college, you can recognize him right there. A composed person, listening to everyone, solving everyone's problems, responding to his students nicely, and above all accepting himself to be happy even inspite of everything that goes around.... That's him!!
Well, when you start learning from a mentor, it's infinite! You can never find ends to what limits you can learn. This large blogger space is less, for sure! Still, even bits of his sayings are worthy to be read, so I thought I will put it down for you all to read! He does not believe in carrot and stick, and why should he? He does not need to! For all his students, are by themselves devoted. They don't need carrots, his tecahing is much bigger than that to us! He gives us a single reason for that- "If one to one interaction can not help you adhere to my principles, I doubt if any other electronic or social system can ever!" ... We are glad to have you there sir, for all of us, always!!
Without mention, engineering students are mad about their projects. They want to be at the top, beating everyone else down. They want to publish papers, too many. They think their life is an ideal impulse; everything should have success, magnitude infinity but duration to achieve that delta, tending to zero!! And I was the same person, just a few hours ago!
People transform, but for someone to cause a metamorphosis in your thinking, it requires the truth of conviction, the light of a notion which can bring about changes, permanent changes!!
As far as I have known professors, they have been just professors! But now I think, I have found a mentor. Professor Akash Tayal, one person I think the whole college respects, so I am no exception. Projects, he says are not just platforms where from you learn, they are those steps from where you will learn to climb the steps of the real success. We all keep running to him, sir we have done this and that. And always with a smile he says, well, what next? He tells us that the real happiness of life is in the dynamism it has, so keep on working. He is the person who told us, what an impulse function is, but I think, he implements it a bit differently. He likes to keep the impulse moving, shifting it throughout, uptil infinity, sieving the values that it requires to make a good signal in the signal-domain, and a good person in the human-domain! Because- everything in life is made of shifted deltas, the values have to be accumulated one by one, each one is precious! He explains to his students in an unmatched way that publishing papers will never help you, know the things, understand them, and then everything else is little play!
He says, always to work rightly and successfully in life, you will require three things- Energy, Enthusiasm and Direction. Unguided enthusiasm will not lead you anywhere. It’s just like the ray of light, travelling haphazardly through space will never help you, but when provided a core and a cladding, it will help you communicate! So, whenever you have an idea in life, to do the smallest or the biggest things, first look for a direction! Once you know where to go, the way is not difficult ahead.
And on an ending note, let me put it straight in his words. Life always gives a choice; just learn to know the right way for yourself. The direction you choose will never make you sad and unhappy. So, go forward, work on what you want to!
