It is high time that we, Indian parents think beyond the traditional career choices that we push our children towards, and start thinking ahead. Engineering / medical / law / teaching had been the choices for decades. Then came the IT revolution.

What now?

What next?

We just haven’t EVEN explored an ocean of possibilities that wud come up with the changing times.

There are a whole new list of unexplored needs of this planet and its survival. I will list a few rarely touched fields but there are thousands more. Concentrate on them. Especially, the students, who have just completed their school education and waiting for their college admissions in India, please look out for these options and do your due diligence. In today’s world of internet, eveey bit of information is at our finger tips.

The coming years will need a lot of human resource to tackle the needs of these fields.

Be smart, be vigilant, train yourselves and embrace the future opportunities.

Remember, choice should be based on minimising the effect of recession on your career.
