Silicon Valley engineer Rajeev Bajaj has a love not just for circuits and silicon, but for music also. One thing led to another and before he knew it, the 39-year old chemical engineer has become the poster boy for geeksta rap.
With his sweeping lyrics, Rajeev had become the crusader for acceptance of nerds around the world. Read and admire:
"scalar and vector told me to….
don't go as the scalar do,
you gotta know the direction too…."
Or what about:
"I made the calculator and computer, too,
'cause math is not something everybody can do . . .
I am an engineer.
Respect my mind.
So bow down when u see me downtown."
If this makes you laugh, you're probably not the only one. But just replace all the geeky words with some of the regular rap lingo referring to guns, women and sex, and you get a perfectly plausible rap song.
So if you DID laugh, you're exactly the group that Rajeev is trying to reach out to. So bow down when you see him downtown.
Last Novebmer The Pre-engineering Times declared Bajaj "cool engingeer of the month ". In an article for wannabe engineers he explains in detail what he is trying to say with his songs. Read it, it's a blast. But try not to laugh too loud.
