Pressure of educational loans vs grind of experiential learning


Educational loans are proving to be a major stress-point for young professionals all over the world. The pressure that comes with paying off the loan restricts the bold career choices that a fresh graduate would make.

On the other hand, experiential learning gives the student a reality-check at all stages and equips them with real learning, without EMI struggles. Although that definitely is a high risk route to take, and one which won't work out for every one.

What factors can students consider before choosing between the two routes? Are degrees from reputed colleges really worth the post-graduation narrowing of choices?

It's more a matter of each individual's personality, rather than a clear-cut approach? Some people work the best when they have their life plans charted out properly, some are just the opposite. But I feel that the education system should have more incentives for people to grind and learn through experiences, rather than make them feel that they've missed their train.

Its a modern form of slavery.


Farmers in India used to take land on lease and then spent their lives just paying the lease and barely making anything for themselves for the yield produced.

Same is the case of education in India.
