Major challenges faced being a Director
In my experience, the education sector is lacking in terms of providing practical knowledge. In today’s world, students are not equipped with the required skill set, which results in unemployment.
As an educationist, it is my responsibility to bridge the gap and introduce changes according to the market requirements. However, dealing with this requires much time, which is a significant challenge for me. However, being a responsible teacher, I fulfil all my duties timely.

Suggestions to young generations
My suggestion to all the students is not waste their precious time on phones and internet. There is a life beyond it, so live it to the fullest. In the current scenario, it is a must to keep oneself upgraded with the ongoing and upcoming trends. To achieve the same, they must put their time and efforts in the right place. The era of the internet has caged the minds of the youth and put a stop to their creative and innovative minds.
