The Future of India According to 2001 census report, 35% of India is Illiterate, which is around 450 million people & let us see those who go to School do…. Go for the Best Convent Schools in India Ask High School Student What do you want to do?
In 95 % cases Now ask these Students. WHY? NOT EVEN 1% OF THEM REALLY KNOW RESULT

Who will develop the nation? ………. Few thousand Shwetas? …………Or millions of Ramesh ? What should we expect from students at other not so good schools in India? When Ramesh enters his professional life he is already so bogged down in competition that he struggles to think and act independently. ………..Did Ramesh lack the desire to be successful?. ………..Did he not deserve to be successful?... ………..Is IIT, IIM, HBS the only way to success?............ Definitely NO !
Today Indian students needs to be very lucky to have exposure of good career related information and advice ………....and this is the root cause of Ramesh’s failure. Common reasons amongst students for choosing a career: My father wants me to be an engineer and my sibling to be a doctor. My father is an engineer / doctor and I want to follow his footsteps All my classmates want to be engineers. My cousin sister is an engineer, she is very successful. IIT is the best place I can go,after school.
And Life goes on…. Students invest all their time in being the best. Striving hard to get good scores in high school and then prepare for entrance exams. Parents are very less aware of the trends and are very greatly influenced by successful engineers, doctors and beaurucrats around them. Schools concern themselves predominantly with the high school scores.
