Dear Shreshtha,

You are right. The above written degrees are really in great demand. But it is so pathetic to think about the students who are doing Bechlors in Arts. Which career path should they choose through which he could earn more and more.

They are not to be blamed. I feel that lack of educational background in a family is also one of the factor responsible for misguiding. If they get proper source for the information about the scope, definitely they will start thinking beyond this. Everybody should get aware of internet use, so that they can choose the right career path for them.

But Shreshtha, the educational policies in India are very poor. Do you think that in each village every rural student is computer savvy. It is very humourous to think in such a way. I am cutting your words but want to draw your kind attention towards the poor people who are earning their both ends meal by toiling the entire day. Suppose, a poor person earning 100 rupees daily. Would he able to provide a good education to his children/child. It is easy to say. But it is very tough to cope up with the problem. Do you think a poor person who is earning 100-150 rupees daily can purchase a computer with internet connection. Person born with silver spoon in their mouth talk like that. Because they haven't seen the real Bharat. We people are living in India not in Bharat. If we want to know the real Bharat, we need to move to poor people.

You are right. That is the side; it is a case of poor people. Definitely they can't avail this facility because of their poverty. But basic education about the internet should be taught in every school and college. Even if they get internet education they wouldn't be able to pay the fees of these courses. I have seen most of the farmer's son prefer to be a farmer because they don't get enough money to take an education. They should get some concession on the fees, and then only they can think about it.
I was talking about the middle class family, I am the best example. My sister did MA, because that time she didn't get the proper guidance. We had money, but just lack of information about the scope. I got into software after doing my BSc, because I was aware that there are other fields where I can make my career. Now my relatives ask me about the scope in different field, definitely I can suggest them. I said family educational background is one of factor (not the only one) which can help them to choose the correct one.

Hi Mr.Shreshtha,Very nice work on the collection of the courses,But you have forgot to post an important course in the Masters level that is MCA.Now a days after B.Tech the mostly joined course is the MCA.Almost 65% of the graduates are going to choose the MCA as their Masters degree.
