Every cloud has a silver lining. The job market may be bleak but not the matrimony market.

Engineers get some of the best arranged marriage proposals.

1

Life always has a solution. Not placed? Worry not, you can always become a professor.

2

Every problem can be dealt with. 'Backs' are not the end of the world. They are just roadblocks.

Hell, Steve Jobs didn't even complete college.

3

These roadblocks (read backs) just increase your resilience to fight back.

Because somehow or the other, you need to get that engineering degree.

4

There's a positive side to everything. Case in point, 'Year backs'. You get to be in the same class as that hot junior.

Believe in God. 'Backs/Year backs' won't be too much to handle.

5

Sometimes, believing in Old Monk helps too.

6

Love your work, and not the girl. Haters gonna hate. But Mech guys would agree with me. Lathes don't ditch, only girls do.

7

Having friends is priceless. Nothing beats flunking together.

8

Finish today's work today. Xerox all your assignments right now.

9

Where there's a will, there's a way. You can still pass even if you begin studying one day before the exam.

10

The best friendships may not have the best beginnings. #Ragging.

11

Act smart! Just tweak your seniors' project to get a new one.

12

Splurge on girls, not books. Save money by taking 'guide' books from seniors.

13

Campus placements are overrated.

And last one
