    I agree with Kalyani. Despite of having degrees our graduates are not skilled to work in the current situation. Moreover, our systems does not allow students to explore their strengths and weakness and then choose a path based on their aptitude. Our children get confined at very young age before they have explored enough for themselves. Like many students go for Science after 10th, so that the avenues are open. They can switch to Commerce and Humanities later. But switching back to Science is not possible. Most of these children are unsure. They are just 15 or 16 years and have not known much of their interest and calling. Most of the decisions are taken for them by parents and adults and they go in to blind rat race facing frustration, depression and other issues.

    Recently, there is an app launched, for school students to know their aptitude and the direction which will be better for them.

    Exactly. And I find it very sad to notice that later in their life many of them end up joining a career which is not related in any way to the subject that they have studied for higher education. Its destroying not only their life but also those students who were genuinely interested in the subjects which the first person studied but didn't get seat for admission as its filled with uninterested studends.

    Very true Arunima. Also, I wish to point out a sad fact that the parents themselves, in spite of knowing and understanding, are reluctant to let the child explore and decide what he or she wants to really do. The parents go by what is the current trend without considering whether their child might or might not be able to study a particular stream to their fullest capability. So a child who is very brilliant and scores very good marks in 10th is made to take admission for only science even if he might want to pursue arts or other streams. This leads to severe problems with the children later on and they might even go into depression.

    I think instead of theoretical burden there should be more practical activities to increase interest in students on reading and writing. Heavy wait could be burden if there is less interest on study but student are interested then he feel happy all the time. So to increase interest things should be more interesting in form of practical .
