Currently I know nothing about different subjects and also don’t have any interest in a particular subject. Which department should I join in NITs as an undergraduate in India?

[A2A] Please look at Prof Dheeraj Sanghi's blog here: A Guide to JEE Counseling 2011  and make a choice based on that. I know it is really hard. I chose electrical engineering because my friend was choosing electrical engineering and his father was an alumni of IIT Roorkee and Stanford. He told me that electrical engineering has a broader scope than CS, so I put EE as my first choice on my counseling form. I wish there was a direct one-to-one counseling of students to help them make a good choice. But, counseling is really a bad term that they use for allotment of seats because there is really no counseling. Not that it is easy to counsel somebody when you have met them only for a few minutes. I am in the same dilemma, I have not even met you ever. I don't even know your name or your face as you are anonymous. Maybe this is you.

I like to blog about various topics ranging from education in IITs to social issues in India and US. All opinions and views presented here are my own and not of my employer.
