Please could you introduce yourself?
We are involved in organizing an education fair across the south Asian countries. Ane when we organized the education fair we came up with the views of students in the south Asian countries and the institutions from India. So we facilitate the students of south Asia to understand about the education system and how they can pursue careers in our Indian university.
So you are going to introduce the education fair in our country. Can you explain what you will be presenting at the fair?
Let me tell you, we are a very diverse country. India attracts thousands of students from across the globe which provides the opportunity of multicultural interacting with people from different cultures, teaches tolerance, acceptance of diversity and help to build close cultural connections.
So I am talking about why Myanmar students come to India. We have a very long border but we also have very close culture, our cultural similarities, and our systems, even the food habits. We are so close. So when the students are obtaining an education in India they will not find (problems) they will always feel at home.
Why should Myanmar students attend this fair?
Number one, that is what I said, India we are a multicultural country. It means an acceptance of any kind of a race, culture, anyone who comes to India, because we
European country, an American costs to study, Chinese come to study in India, but the Myanmar definitely we don’t have an exact number of students coming to India but roughly estimated by the education consultant who sends students across the world, so they said that in India around 500 students come from Myanmar. And this number is increasing day by day.
What are the most popular subjects?
The number one point when we talk about the Indian education, we talk about Myanmar coming to India, so we have one of the biggest example, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. She studied in India at Delhi University. She did the entire, even the schooling from India. So that gives you an example, looking at your leaders, definitely the Burmese people should understand what is the standard of Indian education.
What is your message for students who want to study in India?
I will definitely want to convey this message to Myanmar students. Number one, when you choose the careers, it is very important, it leads to your golden life. So number one when you choose a career, you should listen to yourself, you don’t listen to others. And try to find out what is your passion in life. What excites you to do something. So follow your passion. And choose the subject where you can do the best. Because ultimately most of the people around the world who are successful turned their passion into fruition. So I will definitely convey this message to all the students of Myanmar. Follow what you decide yourself, follow your passion and definitely you will have a golden career.
