A place for startups and entrepreneurs to meet in Pune
The way we all are brought up in India, basically the service class, is with a very basic notion - "if you don't study and learn you will not grow". and I sometimes feel this is the only reason why indians are excelling in sectors like information technology and research.
But when I look around I see so many open gaps between the knowledge and growth. I see knowledgable people, not growing. When I sit down to do some analysis I see the knowledge is not being used in the right sense to achieve growth. Knowledge accquired in field A, and the person is working in field B. Person had decided to take a field thrown at him and then later comes to know it is not what he wanted.
Inspite of all the information available on net, it is still difficult for students to decide what they like and what they should do with their life going ahead. There is no connect of the outside with the inside.
I feel there is should be a connect between the outside competitive world and various streams of working with the students. Students today are ignorant of what happens in the real world, of what skills are required to survive and how should they survive. Due to which they dream for things which are sometime difficult to attain due to missing REALITY in it.
We in india are all hard working folks, we can beat any ball coming between our goal. But we should clearly understand our goal first. And know that the goal we defend is it the really the goal we want in our life.
There are so many managements programs compaines hire to keep their employees up-to-date. But what about our schools / colleges. Aren't this as well our responsibility to get connected with the future work force and carry out some career counselling and guidance. Help them to realise and find what goes on in the real world.
