I do think that BA graduates should be encouraged to go into real India for two years and serve those who have not enjoyed their privilege.

They lack contact with the reality of India. The MAs remain cosseted in the unreal university world.

The UPSC hopefuls concentrate entirely on studies relevant only to passing the exams.

The MBAs often escape to America. Wherever they study they only think about avoiding reality by entering the unreal corporate world.
