Let us encourage these youngters in all waysIn the past one week, I met with six graduates. Three of them were from two famous Chennai colleges, the prestigious Loyola Collage and Vivekananda College. The boys spoke English with an American accent and we're eating to go. Since all the three were commerce graduates, they have taken up BPO jobs and are either doing the CA or ACS course. They are paid quite well. The jobs are purely stop-gap jobs. Another three were B.Com from one particular college in Madurai district. Technically, they were good. However, they were dazed by the presence of so many smart girls and boys, each of whom did not communicate much to them. The reason? They can speak only Tamil. It took two hours to convince them that they can also improve their spoken language skills. They just need a bit of motivation and advise. They are now far better, and are confident of improving themselves.
Those of us who have such opportunities should encourage graduates who have degrees through their mother tongue.
