Gone are the days where a person writes a letter to his relative who is living far away. But now, wonders are happening with the help of a single button. What more! There are myriad of advancements in technology. As technology began to take its shape, lots of changes have taken place in our education system as well as it created huge employment opportunities. As a result corporate offices, new organizations are emerging.(on the rise) which really adorn the Technological boom Whichever technology you choose correspondingly you will find multitude of openings and courses in that . A student after finishing his high school wants to opt for a course which has lucrative career options. Every parent wants their child to get the highest grade in examination. They strive hard to bring their child an ostentatious and outstanding candidate.This is an important moment in his life and it is at this point the confusion starts.A student faces exam tensions,cram his mind with equations, formulas, theories, experiences sleepless nights. While this is a deplorable sight one side,the other side is selecting a course which decides his career. Apart from the multifarious opportunities and courses a person wants to step into a field which showers enough them money.People want to earn their huge money back spent on expensive courses.When we speak on expensive courses and big salaries only a very few options from the list hits our mind.The booming industries such as IT,Telecommunication,BPOs, are the most favoured options. Obviously when a student enters Twelfth standard ,parents insist him/her to focus on marks so as to catch a seat in one of the above mentioned courses.In this situation it happens at times that a parent may fail to watch their child’s interests.They take efforts to make their child concede to their ideas/suggestions.Students definitely must listen to parents’ words.Nobody can disagree to this.A child may or may not develop interest in some other specialization other than engineering,medicine .Inspite of the fact that a child showing indifferent attitude and gesture of refusal still they are made palatable by the parents. We may be of the notion that a person working for a multinational company alone have chances of coming up in life.Whether engineering and medicine are the only two options in life.I want to narrate a incident happened to one of my known person.He scored a pity score of fifty percent in public examination.His parents decided to join him in a engineering college.They made arrangements for money since his scores cannot get him a free seat.Though he refused and insisted that he is not interested to pursue engineering and opted for visual communication,he is not allowed to chose his role.His family members strongly opposed to opt for Visual communication course .“What? Have you gone mad?Are you going to become a cine star? This course will not suit for our family” was their reply. He was some how convinced by his family members to join engineering and he gave up finally .He was really not interested to study or go to college.His performance was very poor.He dropped the course towards the end of the semester exams.What is pain staking here is that all efforts taken for his least favoured course gone wasted. From the incident what do you feel?Should students be given freedom to decide their career?
