Is scoring high percentage in board examinations alone enough for students today?
Students today need to know how to market themselves in addition to scoring good percentage in examinations, feels author Chetan Bhagat. Speaking at a session in a Kolkata based engineering college, author Chetan Bhagat highlights the significance of communication and marketing skills for students.
The author brings back the focus on the need to change the education system of the day to help students connect their knowledge with real life. Sharing his insights on the education scenario, author Bhagat said “Americans are good at marketing, they are the best at marketing.”
Referring to Vasco Da Gama, Bhagat says, students are more interested about scoring marks than gaining knowledge. They would know Vasco Da Gama came to India in 1498 but they were never taught how Da Gama established connections with the local people in that age.
Chethan Bhagat stressed on the role that hard work plays for students to be successful. “Each pain I weather will pave my path (for success),”
