The only thing that interferes with mylearning is my education.                              -Albert Einstein
Today people think of getting intocollege for education
And not for learning
Let me give you 2 examples oflearning and education
Story 1 : My College
Where I did my engineering inElectronics and Communicationscourse
Busted, right ?
But I memorized everything for theexam
Focusing for the exams, barely Ilearned anything
I didn’t understand Electronics norCommunications
Did final year project on ‘Hacking EMWaves and reproducing the same’
Project was a huge success resultedin Front page of National Dailynewspaper….
I learned Fourier transform,electronic circuit and more fromthis 3 month project !
I learned it from Internet!
Story 2 : Where I started my first job
DUBAI CITY
I started my work in IndustrialAutomation
3 months of intensive training
I learned more than what wastaught during my 4 years ofengineering career
In terms of technical as well as indecision making!
i.e, I learned Engineering as well asMBA 
I was executing one of the largestBMS project in the Middle East withthe things I learned during my first 3months !
Working for an 1 year and more…

Tintumon – more than 15,000registered users and sprang up atintumon fever for some months!
