MILLIONS of students, with dreams of bright future, appear for the momentous 12th board examinations each year. What most of these students share in common are their lofty ambitions, ardent dedication and unswerving determination to make it big. What many of them often lack, especially those students who pursue their schooling in the most far-flung corners of the country, is proper career counseling that equips them with the information needed for identifying the right career path, choosing the most befitting higher education programs and effectively steering them towards their dream careers. As a commendable initiative to bridge this gap, the Krishnanagar Education Conclave, held on September 20 in West Bengal’s Krishnanagar, turned out to be a huge success, with over 700 students from various schools, along with a large number of parents and teachers, attending and reaping benefit from it.
