In this age of hi-tech and era of ITes, what is the fate of many Engineering graduates in Manipur? Number of engineering graduates(even M.Tech/M.E) in Manipur is increasing like floods in the last decades and continuing the same trend still today. In fact this is the sign of development in the field of Science and Technology in Manipur. But no development in this sector is  visible yet.The question is why? Many young and dynamic engineering graduates(some of them are excellence of international level) who are  desirous  to do something for this land are living like a lay man in frustration with no hope and no future. Tireless efforts of parents to make them an engineering graduates with huge investment have become like a business of acute loss. All of us know that parents run here and there from dawn to dusk taking their wards for private tuition and coaching in the hope that their children will do well in examination and score good marks to be  eligible for undergoing engineering course. Yes ,children also tried all their best and did well in the examination and fulfilled the dreams of their parents. They underwent the said course, put the efforts at their wits end. In fact ,engineering studies is not a joke as compare to other course of studies (I experienced as I was an Engineering student),it doesn’t mean other courses are not tough. After graduation ,what where and how is the questions they themselves and their parents asked? But no answer yet in Manipur. One reason I suppose ,could be no factory, no industries no Institutions, no organizations  nothing for them to work and to show their expertise. Answer from authority will be –Manipur is a land lock area ,so heavy industries is not possible. If this trend continue, isn’t appropriate to coin Manipur as the dumping ground of excellent engineering graduates and post graduates as waste products? Just to survive many such people are working in  private schools deviating their line of study in different directions.  This ,in fact is not the sign for development in our land.

 Government should choke out the plans and strategy to harness the endless potentials of our youths for a better and highly develop as well as  advance state among other states of India. Simply shouting in the public platform and theoretical analysis and discussion in the media will not help to transform into action and reality. It’s high time for the government to take up serious and sincere action before it’s too late as today is towards the end of 18th year of 21st century.
