Dear reader,

This newsletter features a slightly longish but relevant article How to choose your career? as 10th standard and 12th standard results are being declared in India. It is that time of the year when these students are constantly bombarded with the question - 

So, what are you planning to do after your 10th or 12th?

I have tried to dig deeper into this career selection with reference to Ikigai - a Japanese term that means ‘a reason for existence'. I have intentionally kept it practical and relevant to the pressing question - what to do about it. I have attempted to offer tools, insights and resources that I believe would be useful for any teenager keen on building a fulfilling career. 

Do read, share it with others who might find it useful for themselves or for their children. As usual, your feedback would be highly appreciated. 

Have a great weekend and wonderful month ahead!

Thank you!
