Well people repeated humiliation is the key factor behind me writing on this topic, I openly admit!!! I was forced to join and take up science when I was at high school when there was an option to choose between arts and science, I was very much interested in taking up arts which included the study of literature and things like that. My parents were invariably prejudiced and were insisting me to take science as the main stream, till then I was good at studies and was well liked by my professors but after choosing science as my stream the whole scenario changed!!! I couldn't perform well, the whole point was I was not interested, the world started to consider me as an incompetent individual, which seriously put me almost to a demented state. Anyway now I am well settled as it has been ages since that incident occurred!!! I always have the feel that it could have been better if I had taken the other option in my life, as that field also has good prospects. So I personally feel that instead of calling an individual incompetent it would always be better if you categorize him as per his interest. If a person is very much interested in some art if not immediately but would soon master it!!! Some people have the gift of adjusting and excelling in every field they get into irrespective of their liking, those are somewhat rare and not a better option as per me. So my sincere request to parents and educational institutes is only these, always try motivating students and induce some kind of interest in them instead of eschewing the poor performer and calling him incompetent!!!
