MONEY,MEDALS, FAME AND CAREER , AN ARTICLE BY KRATIKA CHOUDHARY
Scrolling down to my Facebook screen I just came across to a very strange questionnaire, and I just realized the vast difference between the typical real Indian parent mentalities and the Indian Sports Lovers!! The questionnaire has three basic questions but they will just show you the real typical mindset of our society. I am extremely sorry that I am using the brilliantly written sarcasm, without the permission. The sarcasm is:
Who are we? – We are Indians
What we want? – Medals in Olympic
What we want our children to be? – Doctors and Engineers.
Unbelievable but true. We have been born and bought up in a society of safe players. Players here do not mean the sports person but us, the common man (Mango people) of India. We have this unbearable mindset that the Doctors and the Engineers are the most reputed and money oriented jobs, giving you an assurance of safe and secure future too. What a Deal Man!! I mean what else we want? This typical mindset has cost us more unemployment than we should have. I know you must be thinking that how choosing a safe and secure career for our child can result as an increase in Unemployment?
I would not give you a survey report or a long statement giving a detail on employment rates of our talented country but I would request you to look around and Face the reality. We have approximately 3500 engineering colleges and around 450 medical colleges in our country and we top the list. Still we have donation system and the strange thing is that the minimum donation amount is a lakh. We have engineers but not the jobs; we have doctors but not the perfection not the expertise.
Why we don’t motivate our children to be a sports person, to be a singer, an artist or a Writer? I agree that all these professions need time and money but simply a MBBS degree can’t give you the bright future, PG and Specialization are the glittering stars. A B.tech degree will provide you a livelihood and stability but not the satisfaction. The spark in your life and the efficiency in your work will come only when you will devote yourself and love it.
As a famous movie shows that we all running in a race but why, we don’t have an idea. We are humans and not the Horses, this race is not ours. We don’t need to show society what we are or what we are capable of but we need to write the story of our own life.
As the Legendary scientists ALBERT EINSTEIN Says that “Everyone is a Genius, but if you will judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s a stupid”. Everyone has some different kind of potential, some specialty and some kind of Zeal, as a parent we need to support them so that they can explore the world of their Dreams and can bring the best out of themselves. They don’t need a platform or a grand launch, they just need support and understanding as they Have that much passion and potential that they will create a path for themselves!!
