Education is the key to fall in anyone of the category of good graduates or backbenchers. There are rare lucky lots who were backbencher as well as good graduate. Surely I missed out to be one in those rare lots. Let me give me bit of back ground so that as we progress we all be on same thread of fun.
Good graduated: - Someone who religiously followed the education system; pore as demanded by institutions but was hardly able to follow their interest.
Backbenchers: - Someone who took every other thing seriously apart what taken by good graduates.
Rare lots: Mix of both good graduate and backbencher. You can consider Aamir Khan Role in 3 Idiots movie for visualization (Indian actor in Bollywood film)
Both broad categories have its fun and sorrow. Good graduates are worshiped when exams around the corner, girls surrounds them to canvass for notes, course length, also going to canteen as well for a change. Now backbenchers who made fun of GG throughout the year have to rely on honesty from their girls groups to provide them material to sail through this chilly season of exams. To peek in another prospective this exam season also plays a payback season for girls towards BB who had religiously entertained them throughout. Oh my God seems everyone is appearing in exam!
One thing is common among all groups is that each one of us misses their role throughout the life. So question is which group is more Complacent? Both had discrete approach toward common goal of life i.e. to be successful, to lead descent life, to help making things /system better, to bring about change.
From value contribution prospective we can find people from both groups. Famous GG like Alexander Hamilton (The founder of USA financial system); Satyendra Nath Bose (Known for his work on quantum mechanics in the early 1920s); Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar (reconstructed the Bengali alphabet and reformed Bengali typography into an alphabet of twelve vowels and forty consonants); Sir Issac Newton (English physicist and mathematician); Sardar Patel (one of the founding fathers of the Republic of India), many more…
BB also has people whose contribution has brought difference to the way worlds is perceived such as RabindranathTagore (Who reshaped literature and music); Steve Jobs (American entrepreneur); Sachin Tendulkar (greatest batsman of modern generation Cricket); Lakshmi Niwas Mittal (London-based Indian steel magnate.), many more…
Overall what we infer is that being GG or BB is individual choice of taking things in certain prospective until we have common goal of leading healthy life. That’s why we are human and not perfect. Some takes less time to grasp/master logic compare to others.
One need to keep in mind is that your goal should not get lost or faded by perceiving to be 100% compliance to the education system. You should not be left clueless at end of your graduation and feel repented that you have no interests due to taking each subject as work and you just excelled at every subject just for purpose of excelling not learning. Else you will be left SCARED to the times ahead.
