Considering the number of hours spent at work, the wrong career can consideraby harm one’s life. That can only be avoided by the right kind of education. This poem propagates that to avoid a severe tragedy later on:-
The two most important decisions are one’s career and one’s wife.
Considering the time spent on the former, a wrong choice can ruin one’s life.
In fact one’s career is something that one spends most of his time.
It would be an understatement to state whether in prose or rhyme.
If there is one thing that in one’s progress as an individual can be a strong barrier,It is the wrong choice of career.
On the other hand the choice of the right occupation
Thomas Edison’s “I never worked in my life. It was all fun.” suggests a lifelong vacation.
There are many for whom the “Concentration or absorption in work is a kind of orgasm”
If really so, why in theory and practice in education, there is such a wide chasm.
Concentration is the secret of success in politics, War, trade, in all of human affairs
It is actually spontaneous concentration; a wrong job is full of nightmares.
“Idle mind; Devil’s workshop’ the result of education not being able to draw out.
Work banishes boredom, vice and poverty; for misfits there can be a dangerous fallout.
The consequences of not following the real education are far reaching.
A teacher should try to be an educator; he should not restrict himself to teaching.
A lot of teachers are obsessed with knowledge stuffing and blind instruction.
They should give personal attention to ensure that in “knowing thyself”, there is no obstruction.
Education has to go beyond the obvious, it has to go beyond merit.
Instead of stuffing facts, it should be detecting talent; looking at spirit.
Occupation should be such that in which one can spontaneously occupy
You are in the wrong field if it takes too much force to apply.
One’s career is something you simply cannot but adore, it should not be a bore
How can one spend a lifetime on the work which seems like a chore.
What is the purpose of running after infotech and biotech
Why not get the right occupation for everyone, why not pursue humotech.
It is for this reason that for not detecting talent the education system has no excuse.
For being in the wrong place forces people to live the life of a wretched recluse.
How can one not pity if in one’s work ones sees no beauty
Who wants to live lifelong doing some imposed duty.
It is a pity that despite the kind of clout that the education authorities wield
They are not able to fulfill the basic purpose; people still end up being in the wrong field.
Whether the pursuit is knowledge based or vocational,
The education system must try and ensure a perfect fit; such instances should not be occasional.
The well reputed education institutions boast of very good placements.
however once inside, both the employer and employee face a plethora of resentments.
Everybody has heard of “Square peg in a round hole”;
There can be nothing more appalling,
Then not being able to find one’s calling.
It is high time that the benefits of education are both financial and emotional.
Restricted to degrees and jobs, they are merely notional.
Considering the emotional and financial implications involved, there cannot be any concession
In not being able to pinpoint the right profession.
If there is one thing that for individuals and nations can prove to be a blessing,
It is that there is not a single misplaced human being.
I hope I have been able to prove that the inappropriate career is a major wrong
