Almost all of us grew up with dreams of becoming a Doctor, an Engineer or an IAS officer; some went on a slightly different path and thought of becoming pilots and astronauts. We never really knew or thought about the fact that there are careers other than these.

All these aspirations kept aside, whatever career we had thought of undertaking as a kid turned into a long-forgotten dream and we were lost in the mass hysteria of giving one competitive exam or the other, finally becoming a mundane job goer.

Ever gave it a thought that why this happened? The result is competition at the wrong places and us competing for what we were never really prepared for.

Hence we must know our strengths and prepare accordingly. Many of us drop a year after school and prepare, wonder what if we always modeled our studies to suit our career later- we would have saved a drop year, the money that we spent in the coaching (studying less and getting more depressed) and our performance would have got enhanced without a doubt.

Also, these added years of practice would have made our aptitude a habit, instead of some knowledge that gets acquired over a comparatively minuscule period.

It is thus necessary that we make ourselves career-ready right from the beginning. To further support this fact, and the readers can check that most of the European and East (not South-east) Asian nations follow the same pattern of education whereby the students are taught subjects based on their interest and career-excellence abilities. The results shown by the students of these nations are in-front of all of us.

Leaving this on a thinking note for the readers-

Indians are known to have the genetically best brains in the world, yet most of us fail in the face of competition with the European and American nations- where are we lacking then when class 10th onwards, the only thing most of us did was to study?
