Following on from this, the discussion got into streams that could be chosen after school education, fields that are good career prospects, education options abroad vs. in India, alternatives to IIT, developing relevant skill sets, etc. All students participated enthusiastically in the discussions. Further, Mr. Ankit Kumar (Faculty SRMS CET) shared some key concepts like self-introspection, personality assessment, and individual SWOT analysis which can help the students finding their true potential.

The session came to its end with the motivational words of ladkhadate hai pair jinke , unko kabhi rasta nahi milta , aur hote hai jinke hausle buland , unko raste pe khada Himalaya bhi nahi dhikta”.
