I really like this article. I have been in this situation where I didn't like my job and one decided t change the world. Quite the job move backed to India and started a new career from scrath. Now in 5 five years I have achived what people achive in 10years because now I do what should be doing for ever.
I fully agree with Mr. Joshi upon his comments on our education systems. They are just to enable a person getting a high profile job. Often as we look around we find top class physict doing the job of a simple office bearer. In my opinion more job to be created in the general science stream where the budding scientists could be attracted. It is then only India can grow.
These all statements looks good when you are giving advice to somebody but in this professional world u have to choose the career who has lot of scope and money .wat a waste of article promoting some website

It definetely is practical. Profs in JNU are paid well, given staff quarters and do not work like IT coolies or snake oil sellers (marketing). What he is talking is absolutely practical and in fact very practical. The field of profession u choose stays with you for at least 40 years of your life. If you are doing it for money then it is a pity.

Ditto to Mahesh and Aditya. Nobody will feed your family when there is no money with you. Go for money and to safeguard your job work hard.

We need to work for money...but money isn't all....think what you love and choose that field....this way you will enjoy your work and get money...but some money is everything...those kind can go the field where there is more money....but if you want to enjoy your work first find your area of interest and work in that field then you will be happy....and if the area of your interest is the one where you can earn more moeny then you will be more lucky
it is the school education that should be taken care . Many students are struggling even to talk english after completion of school. Once these students enter college they face severe problem. it is the teachers responsibility to build the knowledge of students. yes . it should start from base. lot of Attention should be paid to rural students. Only by nurturing the young minds science can be taken across the boundary.

Well Gautam, while I appreciate your views. We have quite a long list that needs to be addressed before primary education. viz., primary helth care, malnutrition etc.
