Is BCom useless?
Nothing is useless unless you make it. Everything has its pros and cons. You should focus on the positive aspects of Bcom rather than negative ones.
Not only BCom, for every course, this example is applicable
It is like tasting lemon juice without making it. For the tasting, first, you should make it. For making the best lemon juice, you should select good lemons. Then you have to extract juice from it and make lemonade. Then you can taste it.
From the above example, we learn that we should never judge a book by its cover. Good lemons in the above example refer to good friends. After making lemonade suppose it turned to be sour then you should not regret it. Instead, you should be happy that you learned the recipe for making lemonade.
