Candid talk: Indian students giving less priority to academics?

K P Isaac, member secretary of All India Council for Technical Education ( AICTE) has said that students of Indian institutions are more relaxed and academics never seem to be their priority. He made these remarks recently during the convocation address of the University of College of Engineering, Ariyalur, Bharathidasan Institute of Technology (BIT), Tiruchirappalli, and University College of Engineering, Thirukkuvalai, all coming under the Trichy region of Anna University.

Speaking on the occasion, Isaac dedicated most of his time to giving the students a pep talk that bordered on a stinging criticism of the academic life in India. Drawing a comparison between the academic system in the US and the national-level technical institution in the country, Isaac said that students at the Indian institutions are much more relaxed.

And instead, they spend their time putting on amazing shows, playing lots of cricket and organising incredible festivals. According to Isaac, students in India work really hard to get into a good institution, but once they get there they become complacent and start enjoying life and rigorous studies do not seem necessary.

His remarks assume signifance in the backdrop of several studies suggesting that though India produces lakhs of graduates, hardly ten percent of them possess the requisite skill set for jobs while the rest don't even qualify in the initial rounds of job selection. This can in a way generate a disastrous impact on future generation unless addressed on a priority basis.
