The need of the hour is well groomed professionals, who can take the pharma industry of India to great heights.
Nowadays in colleges the focus is on getting good marks and getting a good G.P.A. No one guides us at the practicality of the knowledge that we are gaining. The course and the curriculum is so vast that we don't get time for industrial exposure.
For example: I have completed my second year, we got less than a month summer vacation, there is hardly any time for industrial training. But still I got into training in a testing laboratory. There what I have to do is totally different from what we are made to do in college. I am doing testing on actual samples of medicines by referring IP, BP and USP. But in college we have some tests stipulated in our course and we are made to do that. Before attending the training I had no idea about what happens in the real world.
A little more experience and a exposure to the industry can not only increase our knowledge but can make us more aware of the things going around us. Sitting in college, attending 9 to 5 lectures just exhausts our minds and we loose interest in wanting to know more about the outside world.
Less oppurtunity to explore the industries, lack of 24 hrs internet and lack of recreational activities in few colleges add to our reluctant behaviour.
10 years back the culture was different, though there were less facilities but still the students had an inner drive to excel, explore the world and gain knowledge. But today as the population is increasing, neck to neck competition is becoming a hurdle in front of many mediocre students. The mantra is ' if you want to succeed then become better than the best' .
Today we need to widen ourselves in terms of our knowledge and personality so that we can compete with the world and prove to be an asset to the people we are working for.
In my next blog I will discuss some of the steps we can take to become better than the best.
