Why getting through Harvard is easier than IITs: Shashi Tharoor

Hiring Image Credit Continue reading The Harvard takes 10-11 percent of all the applicants while the IITs take only 0.01 percent of the total number of applicants with a rigorous screening procedure, says Shashi Tharoor, loksabha member of parliament from Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala. We are the youngest country in the world. If you count the number of children of school and high school ageing between 10 to 19 then we have 225 million of them. Looking at the demographic trends and these number it means that in the next 30-40 years India could, rather should have a youthful, productive, dynamic working age population at the time when rest of the world including China is ageing, said Tharoor. Shashi Tharoor also added that with this India is poised to become the powerhouse of the world but all of this will only happen if we get one key thing right that is education and skill development training. If we don't get it right we face disaster because if 26 percent of 1.2 billion people don't know how to read and write then we have the largest population of illiterates people in world.' ''In the old days if a kid is not in school then it was the parents fault today it is the state's fault. When I went to a graduate school in 1975 I discovered that every single graduate of an IIT was guaranteed a scholarship somewhere in the US and just getting into IIT reflected that your quality was higher than that of the average applicant to an American graduate school. There are a few institutions which offer this kind of quality and if you move beyond them then you will find Indian employers telling you that they are finding that the graduates they are hiring are essentially unfit to be hired,'' added Tharoor. The MP also states that we must have an education system that can employ people and that shouldn't be restricted to IITs and engineering institutions it means that those who are not capable of entering such colleges should have a worthwhile available alternative and that alternative must lie in vocational training. ''Too much of our education has concentrated on filling the children heads with facts in order to able to prepare for and pass an examination. That examination culture is deeply entrenched in India. The ultimate objective, the measure of a child's worth has been seen for too long as the marks he or she gets,'' said Tharoor.

Setting Up a New PC ? Check Out These 4 Tips for a Successful Migration

Internet Image Credit Continue reading Using a computer is something most people do on a regular basis. If you use a computer for work or school, then making sure your machine stays functional is a must. Over time, the existing personal computer you have will begin to wear out and will have to be replaced. Getting a new computer can be very exciting, but you will have to do a bit of work to successfully migrate from an old PC to a new one. Doing things like taking advantage of a Laplink Discount is a great way to get help with this process without spending too much money. The following are some of the things you will need to do when trying to migrate successfully to a new personal computer. 1. Focus on Your Files The main thing you need to do when trying to successfully migrate to a new computer is to get all of your files. The best way to do this is by investing in an external drive. Doing this will help you get all of the files off of your existing computer with ease. Before getting a new external drive, you need to find out exactly how much room you need. The last thing you want is to get a drive that is too small due to the aggravation this can cause. If you are unsure about exactly what you need, then consulting with professionals in the computer industry is your best course of action. They will be able to assess what your needs are and then recommend the best type of external drive. 2. Transfer Your Bookmarks For most people, bookmarking various websites on their computer is important. This is especially helpful if you are doing research for a project or sourcing material for your business. One of the best ways to migrate your bookmarks is by using a Google Chrome browser. With this type of browser, your bookmarks are saved under the Gmail account you are using. By downloading the Google Chrome app on your new computer, you can sign into your account and get all of your bookmarks. Doing a bit of research is a great way to find out what can be done to migrate your bookmarks from the type of browser you are currently using. 3. Cleanup Your Old Computer Once you have gotten all of your files off of your old computer, you will need to spend some time cleaning it up a bit. Running a virus scan and getting rid of all of the unnecessary things on the computer is essential. If you depend on a computer to make a living, then you may want to keep your old computer for a backup. You may want to take the computer to a professional to let them get it back in good working order. This will usually not cost you much money and can help you greatly in the long run. Before using a professional for this type of work, you should take the time to do a bit of research to find out about the experience they have to offer. 4. Deauthorize the Programs on Your Old Computer If you have a variety of programs that you have paid for on your existing computer, you will need to reauthorize them in order to use them on your new computer. Programs like Windows Office Suite will only allow you a certain number of downloads. This is why taking the program off of your old computer the right way is so important. If you are unsure about how to do this, then calling the technical support the program has is important. Usually, professionals in this department can offer you the guidance you need.
