I started preparing for IIT- JEE since 8th standard.
The competition is increasing with each passing day (*no doubt about it). But that doesn’t means that we need to sacrifice our childhood for a glittering thing in the future.
Nothing is more precious than childhood days!
Businesses run for-profit & they will sell anything you demand.
The biggest mistake parents can do is to enroll their child for an IIT-JEE coaching in 8th standard.
This deprives him/her of the opportunity to explore the world. It leads to cut-off from social life, time to think & ponder over life, etc.
□ Life is the playground where you learn. If social-life is cut-off, one gets no opportunity to learn from the real world & hence results into poor people’s skills.
□ Isn’t it crazy? Preparing for IIT-JEE for 5 years, is that worth?
In 5 years, you can establish a profit-generating business if one can guide you from the beginning without any money or capital.
We are going into the wrong directions by laying too much emphasis on institutions rather than our own children.
□ Who are the top-paid employees?
They are usually not the one’s with technical knowledge or skills but they are the THOUGHT LEADERS. It requires critical thinking & understanding of the social sciences & the application of the same in real-life.
पर अब तो कोई सोशल साइंस ठीक से पढ़ता ही नहीं because it is considered by many inferior to science & technology. This very assumption is disastrous.
Isn’t something fishy about the society when it defines the trajectory of life for you & forces to fit into it?
Go to IITs, then to IIMs, then have a job in an MNC, etc. Going to great places & have the opportunity to study there is also great but at what cost?
I desist to agree more. There is very less likelihood that you were born to compete in the world with others. Go where there is NO COMPETITION.
There is no competition for you when you start doing what you love to do. Because anyways you are going to do it (*isn’t it?).
Over emphasis on institutions rather than on individual abilities will prove disastrous. Trust yourself & fly high.
