Education

Education is a word that means different things for different people. Similar to the situation with the “The Blind Men and an Elephant” story. Even we are forced to use the same word (Education) for naming this section on the website in order to avoid creating any confusion with our readers.

Sub-sections:

Academics
academicsWhen people say 'Education' many mean it to be academic qualifications, degrees and institutes. There are many who have made academics a business and created a false impression that you need just an advanced degree to get and hold a job. However, this assumption has been proved as clearly false by several studies that clearly indicate that only a small fraction of the academically qualified in our country are employable. Our 'Academics' sub-section covers all things related to academic institutes, degrees, professors, students, etc.

Preparation

In addition, there are not many resources nor much guidance available to direct students on a variety of topics like - how to prepare for service sector jobs, what is not negotiable in service industry and how one should perform in the services sector. Through insightful articles in the 'Preparation' sub-section, our goal is to prepare students for a job in the services sector.

True Education
Our 'True Education' sub-section is not meant to improve your technical knowledge or skills, but to help you broaden your mindset to be able to connect meaningfully and positively with the society and its institutions; and to support and enable a positive transformation in it. Because positive social change is possible only by a truly educated!
