The Chairman Emeritus of Infosys N R Narayana
Murthy has said that the craze for Medical and Engineering courses among Indian
students will subside when the country becomes developed.
“India is a poor country. There are a
lot of uneducated persons in this country, no proper drinking water (in many
areas) and there is unemployment problem. Everyone wants to get jobs after
completing their courses,” Murthy said.
He said that in developed countries students
are pursuing programmes in different streams as their primary aim after study
is not procuring a job. He said once India would become developed, the current
trend would change, “When the country becomes developed, there will be a
reverse of this present situation,” he said while releasing the Malayalam
translation of his book ‘A Better India, A Better World”.
During his interaction with students, he said
India was second to none. “What needed to be done for youngsters and the coming
generation was to create an environment that enhanced the enthusiasm of the students
and get the cooperation of the central and state governments and corporate
leaders,” he said.
