There are more than 10 lakh students who like to choose to become an engineer because it’s trending. After that what happens is only a few become the real engineer. Others just have a certificate which proves that they wasted their 4 years.
In India what happens is that parents and schools give high pressure to students. From parents a pressure of scoring good marks. From school pressure of doing more study. It’s not a parent’s mistake because most of the parents are coming from poor backgrounds. They think that only the education given in school will make them capable of getting a government job. Although it is true as it will make you capable of doing that job. It is not sure that you will enjoy your life or not. Parents think that doing something else like sports, painting, dancing, singing, etc, is a waste of time. Sometimes you need to disobey your parents to achieve your career.
