Harvard Blog!

I hit a Harvard university blog


My humble opinion here. (Cant post in Harvard blogs for obvious reasons :))

Issues for students in India in choosing their career, these are not in the order of their mention, but in the order that I feel is impacts!

  • Lack of financial returns
  • Lack of funds
  • Lack of governmental support
  • Lack of guidance
  • Lack of proper training
  • Lack of Infrastructure
  • Lack of communication channels
  • Lack of vision
  • Lack of nurturing of vision
  • Lack of resources
  • Lack of confidence
  • Lack of motivation to pursue the dream
  • Lack of corporate/professional exposure
  • Lack of exposure
  • Rigid bureacracy
  • Corruption
  • Lack of proper labour force
  • Lack of honesty/ cheat involved in start ups
  • Sustainability
  • Lack of committed partnership

There are some initiatives on in the country to address some of the specifics here. But the broader look at the list demands for the idea of India itself to change. . There is a greater need to revamp the Q & A columns in the newspapers.
