This is quite hilarious. I recently bought some antiques that are mechanical banks made in the early 1900’s from Colaba Causeway. When I searched for these on eBay, I was amazed to see that there is a market for pretty much anything on eBay (considering that cats’ souls and Virgin Mary faced toasts have been sold, my shopping expedition had some merit after all). So I tried looking for “mechanical banks” on eBay India. Guess what the search results came up with – question banks for mechanical engineering.
I wasn’t so much disappointed by the fact that there was no market for the mechanical banks, but found it really funny that Engineering question banks were floating around on auction sites. I remember the good ol’ days of Engineering when crash courses and copying assignments seemed like the only way to clear exams, and how not even for one moment did I wonder at my apathy and ennui in those four years.
I hate second-guessing myself, but time and again, I’ve found myself wondering how life as an architect would have been.
