India has a vast dearth of human resources which are potential to scaling great heights. India becoming a super power in the nearest future is a dream comes true for every patriot of the nation. This purposefully lies in the hands of every young Indian sitting in the classrooms. For effectiveness to be achieved there requires an understanding of one’s own self opened through enlightening and uncovering the blind self. This treasure is what is termed as talent or called one’s potential. The ravages of the potential are unravelled through inward journey and this enables one to have tryst with destiny. In this mechanised age identification and usage of talent is very much needed to achieve the nation’s objective of growth and development.

b. 69 per cent feel that there is no suitable affordable course to bring forth their talents.
c. 40 per cent of the respondents feel that they are being forced to make choices of their career.
d. 60 per cent feel that higher education system in India brings out their best potentialities.
