Changes In The Professional Environment:
Nothing special. As it was decided a few years before start the things professionally,it gave me problem.
Professional Strengths:
When i asked a few students to choose the career/professional education according to their latent skill. After conducting a joint discussion they accepted my suggestions & got success in their respective career. Then my both children & their friends did a well after accepting my suggestions in 2000 AD.My regular study related to the field of work boost my courage & finally I got that I have some this kind of professional skill and I should go ahead in the aforesaid field.
Degrees That Matter:
No, I don't have any such qualification/certificate but my qualification/my experience/my passion, and above all my necessity & environment force me to start/do this kind of work.
Working Life Management:
I have bifurcated my work into three four stages & every stage has a strong hold.I also seek the help of other experts.So managing a work is not a problem if it is well planned.
Growth Strategy:
No, not at all, I do not want to show anything I do this work just to satisfied my self.I always tried to do something for the society.Now doubt I have never been accepted by the society in open but in a silent mode they often accept my work & that is enough for me.
Role Model:
Prof.V.C.Pandey my Hon'ble teacher & Ph.D guide is my Role-Model. When I was in Hostel,often I refuse to eat my food in hostel.My room mate told this thing to him.He suggested me something & the same tasteless food became tasty. He often told me that I have the qualities to choose this kind of profession.But I just ignored this all at that time but later on,I accepted it.
Done Differently:
A man cannot get all things at a time.He takes a long time to learn.If he distribute it, he gets more. This field also requires some machine tools & technology.Definitely it will give me a problem being a non science student but one's effort & determination never fail a person who decide to do it.
If I do the job the way I want & get success,I have been doing the things differently.
Family Background
I have my wife who is a Senior teacher & She is M.A.,B.Ed.,Then my daughter Who is an Engineer & working AGM in a software co.in Banglore,Then my son Who is MBBS & working with SSB as Medical Officer.My self retired from Govt.Handicrafts(J&K)deptt.
Advice For New Professionals:
They must be determine,sincere,honest & polite in their respective profession.Study the subject in which they work as much as they can.
Job Profile:
I worked as University Correspondant for about 3 years and I/c of different trg. cells in Handicrafts industry.my interest to study human psychology in general & Education & career in particular,boost my interest to come into this field.I am M.A.(History),M.A.(Archaeology ),M.Phil & Ph.D(scholar). Due to wrong planning & lack of guidance often we don't get our destination and I did it for my clients.
When a few students did well after getting my counselling at the time when the said job was not taken up professionally.It boost me a lot.Then both of my own kids did well & now both are well placed & well paid engineer.Being a national level sportsman,Coordinator of NGO( for children),I received a good response & my approach was appreciated by all.Now after retirement I have been doing this job independently.
The Journey So Far:
It is not a job to visit hither & thither.I often give advertisements in local papers & remaining work is done by my clients.An interview in Local TV channel also circulate my mission.
Other Thoughts:
A good sport man needs appreciation if he plays nicely.Every person is a sportsman in his field of work.Every person needs encouragement, I too.
The Decisions That Matter
I never studied science as a subject in my educational career & when I started my NGO dealing in science projects(For Children Sc. Congress),it indicated me that if I were a Science student,I do better.This kind of enlightenment forced me to do the job in question.
Often we seek the help of an Architect to build a good & well planed house but we don't do the same for giving our child a better & successful future.Moreover parents force their child to do the things according to their wish without knowing the temperance,attitude,capability & above all Latent skill of the child.
Then the wrong planning also disturbs the child.
Till the date I was in service I always took wrong decisions,made wrong planning that was why I was badly disturbed & not satisfied with my career & job.
Though I was late but I took the decision to help & guide the worthy students who face difficulties for doing all this.
Contribution to the field
1.One of my relative,who after doing his B.Tech appeared for IAS I asked him when he passed 10+2,go for journalism,he did not hear me.He could not get success in IAS,literally he did journalism after wasting 6 years & joined a reputed National News paper as an editor & hide the last fact from me.
Like was A candidate was interested in Computer Sc.& I suggested him Bio-Informatics he did it & now he is enjoying the job very well.
There are so many other cases which prove my worth as people say.
Required Reading:
One must study different books/articles related to Education & career Counselling often publish in different papers/megazine & books.& then analyze the same according to your knowledge.
