“LRS India aims to bring a change on the aspects of the present education system in Manipur and allow the students and the parents to select their preferred trades on the basis of the popular Institutes. The Edu-expo2013 is being held to demonstrate the outside educational Institutions having high proficiency and competence to the young students of the state”.
Dr. Longjam Robindro, Managing Director, LRS India Pvt. Ltd. shares his view with Manipurtimes regarding the ongoing Edu-expo 2013 being held at the Nupilal memorial complex, Imphal.
He said that a student’s life after 12th class is full of choices when it comes to building a career, thus stranded in a crossroad they are full of confusions. Which course or which college to choose is one of the toughest decisions one has to take. Again, lucrativeness of the career and job prospects also plays an important role in decision making. This crucial phase affects their life many years down the line. Therefore, with the vast increase in the number of career options available nowadays, students need to figure out what are the courses available, which colleges provide which courses, which field suits them the best among all the fields they are good at, how much it all cost, what about the future prospects and so on. Students need to evaluate their interest, skills, strengths, potentials, advantages and weaknesses.. Some students already decide their careers even before they enter class X which might not be the best career for them as they are not exposed to and are unaware of the other opportunities out there, thus missing out what would actually have been best suited for them. Many follow the herd mentality influenced by their peers and simply follow trends. Just because someone else took the course or their parents want them to take up a course, students shouldnot go for it. Choosing the right career is very important for an individual. An individual spends a considerable amount of time doing his job, so loving one’s work becomes important for personal and professional satisfaction and happiness. Some follows their line of interest even though they came from a different academic career. At such a turning point, education fair comes as a help and rescue from all such dilemmas. Education fair represents one of the most efficient ways of meeting large numbers of renowned institutes and universities which assists students through their representatives in choosing the right field. Delegates from top universities will be present for ON THE SPOT offers, Interactions, counselling and admission. Student queries about courses, facilities, placements, activities, hostel, scholarships, loans and so on will be fully acknowledged. Reference materials regarding programs, admission procedures etc would be displayed.Basically, the purpose behind organising such Edu-expo is to bring students and parents face to face with representatives from various accredited and recognised colleges, universities and Institutes, to gather valuable information about potential Institutes, to discuss future plans directly with the delegates, to ask questions about college, admissions, academic programs etc, to eliminate wastage of energy by coordinating with multiple different universities, to provide and highlight the most up to date and relevant educational programs available today, to provide guidelines, counselling and forum for adults to make informed decisions of their future education endeavours, Institutions and universities profile distributed to all fair goers, to provide one on one opportunities for students, parents, guardians, Career Guidance and the General public to gather available career opportunities in India and overseas, to promote tourism Industry in a wider scale and we get an honour to showcase Manipur from a larger point of view across the country.
Edu-Expo organised by LRS India is a great platform that primarily aids in the development and advancement of the educational sector of the state of Manipur. It has been held since 2010 and held twice a year. The ongoing edu expo at the Nupilal complex will again be held on 9th and 10th June this year.
