India as a country has always been lauded for the educational geniuses it is known to churn out. We have a number of highbrow intellectuals, working in the most sophisticated of places, both in the country and abroad to prove the same. This seems to be the result of the efficient concoction, of the importance given to education and the corresponding mushrooming of classes for every sub field. While the upside has extremely lucrative careers, magnificent laurels throughout, the downside to it is the very popular, single degree disdain syndrome and the crude commercialization of business.
The fear of getting stuck in a dead end job and the anxiety that comes attached to it is pushing the youth today towards this new herd mentality. The job market is gradually transforming into a place where the most polished CV is able to bid for the most lucrative, high reaching job of them all. Students, today feel the pressing need to upgrade their resume by opting for courses, providing them with multiple degrees, thus bringing them one step closer to that dream job. Because of this, there are scores and scores of students checking out various master degree courses, attempting multiple advanced aptitude tests at once, to acquire that seat in a prestigious college.
For colleges, it seems to be a win-win kind of situation as they not only charge these master degree courses exorbitantly, but also give themselves a very formidable reputation by setting the cut off to a grade, and quite high might we add, which would only allow students with extraordinary educational skills.
Digitalization has taken the whole world by storm lately and no field, including the field of education has been spared. Earlier it was just at a primary level, where students would prefer the virtual world to their school or college libraries, for skill enhancement, when it came to delivering exceptional projects.
