Why Is It Important To Read Books For Indian Students

Books Jul 12, 2021 7 mins read

I don't know, how to start this post because a lot of things are happening currently people are getting unemployed, and we are trying to survive a pandemic.

So, the point here is not to mention this pandemic and the problems caused by this pandemic. Then what's this post is about?

This post is about proving information that can help you with planning matters for your future as a student, and if you are intending to secure a job in the future, then what you need to change, now?

I know in student life, students are not aware of several points, which are important for students, whether they are in schools or in college. There are certain important things that they don't give a sh*t, later these things don't give a sh*t about them.

What are these things?

  1. Books.
  2. Knowledge about jobs and careers.
  3. The present situation of the world and our country.
  4. Future of the students in our county and what you need to do to have exact details.
  5. What is the current situation of Indian students?

So, let's discuss.


I think before moving to that I just want to share problems that students currently are facing, and what is the ground situation of jobs for students who are graduates and PhD holders and belongs to the Indian student category?

I was surfing youtube and came across a video stating some details about the bad conditions of the PhD holders and graduates.

What are these problems actually?

  1. IITians filling forms of small jobs, you can say forth grad jobs.
  2. PhD holders are filling forms of peons jobs.

I think you can grasp the situation, which is not so pleasing. The only thing that you need to understand from this is, situations of Indian students are getting worse day by day, and it doesn't matter from where they have done their graduations.

You know that total there are 23 IITs in India which offers 11290 seats, which are not even enough for toppers students of India.

If you are aware of data of students who gets above 90+ is way more than these seats.

So, what's the point of preparing for these fancy IITs, if you know that you are just diving into a pool of foolishness, why?

The trend of IITs,  NITs, AIIMs, NDA and other popular exams is because of the marketing that is done by the coaching institutions.

I am not saying preparing for these institutions is wrong, the wrong thing is students don't get the chance to think, whether they really want to do it or not.

There are 1000+ institutions that offer preparation courses for IIT JEE and the same goes for other exams. These institutions just misguide students by putting large hoarding of students, who have cleared these exams.

Because of one student, the life of 100+ Indian students gets destroyed only by one hoarding. The reason is that students never give a thought to, what they want to do and why? and no one in their family and friends tries to guide them for that.

Most of the students just follow the footsteps of their parents or someone they know, who has succeeded by taking coaching in the premium institutions.

Today India has 760 universities and 38,498 colleges. These are only small numbers that do not include private coaching institutes.

If we have that amount of colleges and institutions than why? we have so much unemployment in our county, except that we also have the highest number of uneducated children's.

I think something wrong is going on in our country?

These problems can be solved, but only when we'll become aware if we can't think about other well-being than we just scum.

As you know that conditions were never good for Indian students, they are just getting worse every year, and degree is not important any more. And Indian students are not getting jobs because of those provisions certificates they hold, they need some professional experience in good companies for getting a good job. For that, a lot of startups are going on.

List of startups that are going on in India by Indian students.

1. 2020 best 50 startups in India.

The fact is that for getting the experience you need a job and for getting a job you need experience, lol.

So, what you need to do being an Indian student?


Let's start with the first one.

1. Books.

Why books are important for Indian students?

Books are necessary for all students whether they are Indian or from somewhere else. The point is that most of the students have left reading because of the availability of the visual content.

And they are consuming too much visual content and getting misguided by that, you know this if you are consuming any think just use it as a source of information, not for the source of your decisions.

You may be reading a lot of books of different genres depending on your interests.
like, books for the Indian constitution, books for Indian history books for the Indian economy, books for Indian stock market, Indian geography book, books for Indian polity, books for Indian economy UPSC, books for the Indian navy, books for Indian culture, Indian gk book, books for Indian economic services etc.

There are way more types of books more than you can imagine, and you are can not read all books because you don't have enough time for doing that.

So, what sort of books students need to read?

A student must start reading books from class 10th or class 9th because only then he'll be able to develop an understanding of books.

Only reading is not essential, how you decode a book that matters, and after that utilisation of the information that you have decoded from the books carries full value.

One must-read books of his interest without taking any suggestions from anyone because these books will later guide you to the right path.

I am saying this by my experience, books always allow a student to develop a vivid perspective in terms of life.

If you are reading books other than your interest, this simply means you are wasting your time, and not gaining anything from these books. So, you must choose your books wisely being an Indian student.

Reading recommendations from schoolokay for Indian students.

  1. Must read magazines that provide monthly data.
  2. Books that have facts and figures about the Indian economy and education system.
  3. Books that provide business ideas and perspectives for the future.

2. Knowledge of jobs and careers options.

Students must be aware of all sorts of jobs and career options that they possibly can pursue, as a profession, only then they can make a stable decision.

Only because of insufficient information and lack of awareness students falls in traps laid by coaching institutes and private colleges.

If you are well aware then you can save your money and time, otherwise, you'll going to waste both for nothing.

You must know this a coaching institute only cares for the topper students because they'll provide the rank and rest of other students are used as a financial source. I hope you got it.

Schoolokay is trying to spread awareness. Because I have visited a lot of top institutes for preparing IIT JEE during my school time, but never got a perfect one.

The reason for this is simple, they just don't care for the students who score fewer marks.

This fact proves that you only valued by others when you value yourself

So you must think 2-3 times before taking any step if you are obsessed for certificates and fancy colleges for that nothing can be done.

You must underline this, A student must always look for the products and services that are cheaply available because expensive products can be fancy but cheap products are reliable.

And true students and a businessman always understand, how to get something for free and use it.

3. The present situation of the world and our country in terms of education and jobs.

This is the most important because if you are planning to achieve something in your life, and don't know about the situations that you're going to face when you'll enter the field, which proves you're a fool.

As I have mentioned above you must have complete knowledge of the availability of options and must make choices precisely.

Because unemployment is not only our problem but developing countries, like the USA, UK and France have these issues too. Even when they have skilled people.

So, if you are ranging about unemployment then you are stupid, instead of that, you must find a way to employ yourself.

You can read this, the unemployment rate in the world. Because of coronavirus things have got much worse for all, students and professionals.

An Indian Student must have an awareness of all these matters.

This also includes the future of Indian students, how things are going to be for students in upcoming times.

By looking at the facts it can be said not so good days are coming because we have a lot more graduates than we need. even though they are not eligible for anything.

All thanks to our education system and the peeping services we provide in our schools and colleges.

Students who are not eligible for basic jobs try to claim big ones because they are graduated from some college you don't know about that. And you must have heard about the girl who was the topper of Bihar board but doesn't know her all subjects.

So, you can conclude from this.

Last but not least.

4. The correct situation of Indian students?

As you are well aware things are not very pleasing for Indian students, it's not the fault of the government, it's the fault of students, who try to get degrees and certificates by the false process.

And nothing can be said about the false certificates, even people who have grabbed big positions, have grabbed those positions by a wrong process.

My suggestion to all the students is that you must not get misguided by the people and the visual content you watch. Because if you are getting misguided and creating opinions on the based on them, which simply shows you are not interested in putting affords into anything.

Student life means putting affords into things and producing results out of them.

So you must put some afford into what you want to do, don't allow others to tell you, what you need to do. As I am doing the same, but I am only trying to open your eyes.

Because if you are taking other's advice for everything, later you'll just blame others and never going to realize that it was all your fault.

I hope now you got it, why reading books is important for students because they provide you with real data.

If you are in class 10th or in class 9th you can start by reading these schooling books.

If you are reading this must comment below, with yes and no.
