Students should select career according to their basic inclination and interest

Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan today showed the way of living a successful, meaningful and happy life to students at the inauguration of the ‘Hum chhoo lenge aasman’ career counselling initiative at the Model School auditorium here today. Shri Chouhan said that there are several opportunities for better career. Students must choose their career as per their basic inclination, interest and expertise. They must discuss with known persons and relatives. Determine the goals and create a roadmap for detailed and advance action plan and be determined to succeed. The Chief Minister said that no work or goal in the world is impossible. There are infinite powers in every person. We become what we think. The Chief Minister shared the experiences of his life, studies and related incidents with the students.

CM Shri Chouhan said that he wanted to see that children should always smile. If children move ahead the state will also move ahead. Every child must make his life successful. The state will definitely get the benefit of the child’s success and capacity. In order to make Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's concept of building New India a success, we have to create a new Madhya Pradesh. He said that the state government has made arrangements for the payment of higher education fees of the children. Career counseling has been arranged with this intention so that children are able to move forward in the right direction. Shri Chouhan said that higher education is not compulsory for success. There are several people in the world who are not highly educated but have touched the peaks of success. They have established several new and big establishments and have created new records. He cited his own example that his family wanted that he should become a doctor but the nature of work did not match his basic inclination. He was more attracted towards philosophy and he started moving towards this direction.

The Chief Minister urged parents not to put pressure on their children. He urged them to support their children to choose a career of their interest and inclination. Referring to the happiness that a poet attains from reciting poetry, he told that happiness can be attained only by working according to one’s basic inclination. The happiness of a poet by his poetry and a painter by his painting is invaluable.

Shri Chouhan said that the initiative to support students in choosing a career comes from the core of his heart. He wishes to see the youth move fast in the right direction. He said that meaningless education is a waste. The objective of education is to provide knowledge, culture and skill. Employment-oriented education is also must. Expressing happiness over the fact that 1 lakh 12 thousand 625 children have secured more than 70 percent marks by appearing in the Board of Secondary Education this year, Shri Chouhan said that until last year students securing more than 75 percent marks were being given benefits under Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Vidyarthi Protsahan Yojana. On the demand of children, this score limit has been reduced to 70 percent. He told that the state government is paying the fees of the bright students under the scheme. Last year the state government has paid the fees of more than 750 medical students. Up to Rs 40 lakh medical fees is being paid by the state government. He said that he will not allow the dreams of the children to shatter. For this schemes right from distribution of free books, uniforms, cycles to fee payment of higher education have been implemented. At the outset, the Chief Minister dedicated the Employment Department’s “My MP Rozgar’ portal. This portal will be a strong platform for establishing contact with the planner and the unemployed.
