Why Indian parents wanted their children to score high marks?I have seen two scenarios in my life.
1. A guy scored high marks in his board exams and he joined a very good reputed engineering college. After completing his engineering, he got a job in a top MNC through campus placement and is now earning a lump sum salary every month.
2. Another guy scored very low marks in his board exam. Almost all the engineering colleges refused to give a seat for his marks. So he decided to do a diploma course. After completing his diploma course, he joined a small company and earned a descent salary. He gained lot of experience and then he started his own business. Now he is an entrepreneur.
After seeing these 2 scenarios, my mind started to overthink. Both are in a good position and are earning well. The first one is getting salary but the second one is giving salary. The first one is facing a lot of mental stress in his job and the second one has a job satisfaction and is enjoying his job. On comparing these two scenarios I came to a conclusion that marks are not a deciding factor to finalize a person's career.
There are lot of such examples available in the society and the parents are also aware of that. But still many parents wanted their children to score high marks. They are admitting their children in coaching classes and are handling many other ways to score high marks. All these actions of parents are creating a stress in the children's mind. Why parents are in such a mind set? Why they are forcing their children to score good marks?
