There was a time in this country when you did not need a degree to be either
a lawyer OR an engineer.

In fact, up until just a dozen years ago or so, it was possible to become a
REGISTERED engineer--we now use the term "licensed"--without a college
degree in some states!

Fortunately that has changed, and we now require both education AND
demonstrated experience (as well as an examination) to qualify.

Er, are we talking about INDIA? Or LOUISIANA? (GOOGLE: Huey Long).

Um, are we talking about INDIA? Or ALABAMA? (GOOGLE: Lurleen Wallace).

Are we talking about INDIA here? Or MINNESOTA? (GOOGLE: Jesse Ventura).

>India is a fascinating country.
>Welcome to India.

Maybe we're not so different after all.
