Why a Career in Teaching and Research in India Makes Sense Right Now
If you are someone who wants a lot of money right from the start of your career, this post is not for you. But I would suggest that you read it still. Strange but I see 100s of super successful people making a U turn, late in their careers to come back to the field of teaching and research. So, stay tuned and you never know – it might be your big idea! Now, to the main question – Why a career in higher education, teaching and research makes sense in India right now? What is it about the education scenario in India that makes me believe this could be the most cunning move for people with the right fit?
This is my first blog and I want to share some very crucial lessons that I picked up during my growing up years about choosing the right careers after 10th, 12th, graduation or whichever stage one might be in. I feel bemused when I see some very smart youth; across the world getting perfunctory when it comes to the most important decision of ‘How to smartly choose a career’ that’s befitting and makes them happy too.
