Any Indian can vouch for the fact the people here are obsessed with engineering, parents more than the people pursuing the course. There is joke in India that people decide their career path after obtaining an engineering degree. Thus, most of the times these engineers seem to take up professions which are completely different from the degree they hold, and what is even shocking is that they turn out to be very successful in it. Below are some people who too saw such a turn in their life:
