Talent & Potential is futile in India

By Dr. R.B. Thohe Pou *



Many young people have numerous talents and potentialities but due to some reasons they are unable to utilize their talents and potentialities. One simple reason is that they are no utilizing their talents and potentialities in a meaningful way. The other reason is due to widely prevalence of corruption in our country.

Today, money and influential people are playing an important role for deciding the young people where to utilize their talent and potentials. The corruption and influences of the people prevails from the grass-root level to the highest level in the country.

Do you think that you have the potentialities but no opportunity to utilize? Do you ever ponder that if you have money or some influential people then you can do better in your life? Do you want to utilize your potential and where? Why many people don't get the chance to utilize their talents and potentialities in a right way? Have you found the hidden potentialities within you?

If you have found your hidden talents and potentialities but no place to utilize your potential; it is only due to lack of opportunity and corrupt system. Unless we remove the present corruption in our country, many of the talented and potential people will no get the chance to utilize their talents and potentials.

I know a person who is talented in dealing with others and he is also a good orator too. He wants to be a great politician but he does not have money to contest in MLA/MP election since money plays an important role in election.

I know another person who has great passion to teach; he has very good knowledge on the subject but he never get teaching job in the college/university. Some people are really good in some specific fields; they have also great passion and talented but due to some unreasonable problems, they shift to different streams. This is another great brain drain within in our country due to corruption, money power and influential people.

If we can find all those potential people and place them in the right job or work. I am sure that the present system and the productivity of our country can be changed in a positive way. Many people have great potentialities but they do not get the chance to utilize their potentials; there are some people who have less talent and potentiality but they get the chance to work inplace of the highly potential people.

Why these things happen in our country? There is division between the rich and poor; the influential and no influential people, which make more difficult for the poor and no influential people to get the chance to utilize their talents fully. Today, the corruption plays an important role in deciding to get a white-collar job or any clerical job in our country. In every white-collar job, the influential and rich people involved which gives little chance to the poor and less influential people to get the right job and utilize their potentialities.

I know another person who recently joined in one University as a Lecturer due to some political influences. It becomes an open secret in our country that only those who have political and influential people have more chances to utilize their talents and potentialities. Due to huge availability of human resources in India, it becomes more difficult for the less influential people to utilize their potentials. But more difficult to utilize our potentials is the corruption in our system. Tribalism, casteism, regionalism etc also becoming another attributes in job placement.

When we observe and ponder more deeply, it is indeed excruciating to see the present situation in our country. The productivity and returns decreased once we substituted the talented and potential people with less talented people. We know that many people are highly qualified and talented but why they do not get the chance to work in any organization/sector? How long will the talented and potential people suffer due to corruption and due to lack of influential people? It seems that only the people who have less talents with more influential people can do better than the talented and very potential people.

In many governmental sectors, it becomes very difficult to get a job without bribing with money and if we have enough money then why do we need to work in govt. office? In Christian doctrine or some other religious doctrines, bribing may be another form of sin. Do you consider that bribing is another form of sin according to your religious doctrine? If that is no a sin according to your religious doctrine, do you think that it is against the system or law?

How many people have got the State govt. job in your State without bribe? In most of the States in India, no job can be guaranteed without bribe or influential people even if s/he possesses enough experiences and knowledge. Due to corruption in our system, many talented and potential people are not employed in government offices. Today, Private Sectors or organizations are doing much better than the government sectors in many aspects; it is because many young talented and potential people are recruited in these organizations easily without the political and money influences.

I know a person working in Call Center (BPO) after serving as a Lecturer in Private College. He is a very capable person having sound knowledge on the subject. His teaching also very tantalizing and the students always listen patiently to his teaching. Here the question is, "Will such a talented and potential young man contributes something good for the students in our country?" He is highly qualified but the only option for him was to join in Call Center as he needs money to survive. Thanks to the Call Center and all those Private sectors for providing job to the talented people without money and influential people.

Today there are many talented and highly potential people but due to corruption in our country, they cannot fully utilize and exploit their potentials. In order to utilize our talents and potentialities, we may need to eradicate all the corruption in the form of money and influential people. Removing corruption in our system also will enhance the productivity and progress in all the work in every governmental offices or institutes.
