The talk show was organised by the Kaziranga University, Assam.

Other panellists were Tabassum Khan, faculty of Unity College; Kaba Daniel, principal of Yemhi Memorial College; Andrew Ahoto, principal of Living Higher Secondary School; and Amar Dey, faculty of Tetso College.
Speaking at the talk show, Bobby Roy stated that many students chose a course due to parental or peer pressure or because somebody told them about a course which they do not really know. He, however, opined that a student should choose the subject of their interest.
“Asses your potential, interest, aspirations, and assess what you like to be and then you evaluate what kind of options are available for you,” he stated.
He also urged the students to concentrate more on building career than looking for jobs saying, “We must set goals for ourselves and that will be the driving force.” He also questioned why many people only look for government jobs and not opt for private jobs. He stated that private job is better than government “If you are good in your work.”
Resource person Diganta Munshi also stressed on how to prepare for the upcoming board exams and entrance examinations. He suggested that students need to primarily focus on the fundamentals and not resort to short cut methods. He also expressed that a student needs to choose their career and accordingly take a decision for what they want to become in their life.
“Parents and guardians should not pressure their child to undergo a particular programme,” he stated. He cited that if they impose pressure on the child, they grow up with difficulty.
“And there are plenty of opportunities in our country for every individual to grow and live in a comfortable way, so let us not confine our decisions to such narrow aspects,” he added.
The organisers felt that it was imperative to instil proper guidance and also motivate students to choose the right decision in order to ensure them achieve success in life.
