One and Infinity

Based on the TED talk by Devdutt Pattanaik

Recently I looked at my syllabus for this semester and saw some words which haunts almost all aspiring engineers :

But, there are people who do not like to have time frames, who like to do things at their own pace. This TED talk was in a way inspiring, it explains why some people struggle with this system.
