What do you want to become in life? When kids do not know what career to pursue and what to do with their future, it is their parents who help them tread the right path. But we often see children being forced to just follow the footsteps of their parents or take up a popular career that
they might eventually fail to realise.

And what are the ideal professions these days? Either to become a doctor, engineer or an advocate. Does that mean all other jobs are below par? Definitely NO.

Every job has its own dignity, be it a chef, plumber, electrician, construction worker or tailor.
