Devil in the de­tails

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

At first glance, 'The cri­sis Modi is not tack­ling' (1-15 Novem­ber, 2015) does ring alarm bells. But read­ing in be­tween the lines re­veals the real pic­ture. I agree that there is a short­fall of jobs in In­dia. But the in­stance of peo­ple eith PhDs and BTechs ap­ply­ing for a peon's post, as cited in the story, shows that there is some­thing wrong with our higher education sys­tem. A post-grad­u­ate or an en­gi­neer is sup­posed to

have ac­quired a cal­i­bre with the help of which she or he can cre­ate self-em­ploy­ment. The only ex­pla­na­tion about those ap­ply­ing for the peon's job is that ei­ther their de­grees are fake or they in­tend to pur­sue a par­al­lel vo­ca­tion along with the as­sured salary of a peon in a govern­ment depart­ment, know­ing that a peon nei­ther has re­spon­si­bil­ity nor ac­count­abil­ity.
