A victim of our limited-choice education system

I feel proud to be among the readers of HT when I see the kind of initiative undertaken by you in Inspired India. It shows the hard work your team has put in, in order to bring about such a diverse yet interconnected series that is so absolutely relevant today. I wholly agree with you on the need for a credit-based education system. I, in fact, consider myself a victim of our outdated system. I wanted to try out for the Indian Air Force and study Finance. But in our system, one has to choose between Science and Commerce in Class 11. I could never even give IAF a chance; I went with Commerce. I still dream of trying out for the armed forces. The system you have suggested would allow many others’ dreams to come true.
