San­jay Thapa is the founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Sape Events & Me­dia Pvt. Ltd in Kolkata in In­dia. Here he dis­cusses the up­com­ing In­dia Ed­u­ca­tion Fair 2018 to be held in Yangon at the Sum­mit Parkview Ho­tel on March 23-24 with Mizzima’s Myo Thant.

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.
