We have for eons been bred on set lines where toeing the family/caste/clan perception of what one is expected to do with one's life is the beaten path one takes due to expectations. It also becomes easier as support whenever required is readily available. In the process we miss out on experiencing life in all it's complexities. Studying philosophy, ethics & history at Stanford would never do for us. Of late light has dawned on our education mandarins and mixed discipline studies are being introduced in the better institutions.

I have to appreciate folks like her whose motivation is so off the typical motivating careers.

I wonder what motivates them to think about philosophy, political system, teaching english, etc. I cannot motivate to do anything if it does not benefit me monetarily or otherwise.

That is the difference between mere EDUCATION and the THIRST for KNOWLEDGE!

So if another profession pays you more you will scrap off your current profession and take the other profession that pays you more.

Let me tell you without knowing anything about you. You are working in software industry; this is so typical of how software folks think; and this is the thinking that is hard coded in their brains.

What motivates them other than money? The answer is intellect, passion, love and enjoyment for what they do.

Yeah people like you get motivated to earn money, money, money and what's the use when they cannot take a penny with them when them die. This is typical Indian mentality and what separates the west from us Indians. There will be people who want to do things they enjoy the most and live life to the fullest as long as they live and put less weight on the money they earn.

not just money when you die you won't be able to take even knowledge with you..due to total absence of any social security mechanism and reluctance of private companies to hire people with non-conventional qualifications, most of the Indians have no option but to go down the beaten path...few exceptions will always be there
