Here's what he had to say:
Before joining the Academy, I had many misconceptions about the industry. I thought that since I was coming from an engineering background, the course would be really easy. Moreover, owing to our flawed educational system, I had become accustomed to fooling examiners by adding unnecessary theoretical fluff instead of real technical answers. I was so disillusioned by this entire process that my perspective towards the course was that it would just be another degree to boast about. Little did I know that my preconceived notions were going to be shattered, not just in terms of sound, but also in terms of my work ethic.
