When I was studying for my BTech degree, there was a professor who was very student-friendly. He was young and ambitious and would go beyond his class hours to help curious students.
His passion rubbed off on me, and I became more interested in the subject. I made some digital circuits to do some simple tasks, and he encouraged me.
I don’t exactly recollect, but in some context, he had told me, “There is nothing we can’t learn. Just put in that extra hour every day, and in no time you will be an expert. ”
It was from one of those circuits which I used to make as a hobby that I was later able to win a circuit design competition. The competition win doesn’t matter now; what makes me happy is that I knew a person who lived with intensity and commitment, and just remembering him inspires and motivates me. Thanks to the Black Lotus app, I am reminiscing about him after nearly fifteen years.
Passion is contagious.
