There are two potent questions in my grey mind.

(i) Though in my 40 years of teaching no dumb (lacking the power of speech Ref: dictionary.reference.com/browse/dumb) student applied for admission to engineering. If it were true, should I have had denied him/her admission?). I hope not.. on the contrary the student shall get preference- because of handicap quota.

(ii) What would have happened if I had not wasted my precious years learning German, when I was not to be exposed to advanced literature ( technical or other) right one at right time

The former question has a rider attached. because the dumb has a guised meaning too as it may… [simplify or reduce the intellectual content of something so as to make it accessible to a larger number of people.] In that case the situation is twinned to negative side.

My focus in this discussion is on the 1st problem. Some help is solicited?

Let me recall a real life example:
We had called a professional engineer (from industry) to conduct oral examination over minor projects developed by students

When ambitions start flying, it is only the engineer who provides her wings. But such wings are woven both with likes of hard ribs and fibers making say ailerons in aero planes, together with the soft concepts that provide them the due strength and elevation. While scientists may study the wings for understanding the mechanism as to how wings provide due lift, only the Engineers will get involved to construct them for realizing the relevant functions. Gordon Lindsay Glegg, in The Design of Design (1969) provides the simile: “A scientist can discover a new star but he cannot make one. He would have to ask an engineer to do it for him”.

If you see a car on road, an aero plane in the sky, both at least endorse an engineer is somewhere

Confusion.Pages

… read conversation between Mr. Watt and William Knott*…

“Who’s calling?” was the answer to the telephone.

“What is your name, please?”

“Watt’s my name.”

“That’s what I asked you. What’s your name?”
