RAJHEDI, INDIA - MARCH 11: Vanshika Sachdeva, a 12th grade high-school student, is the first in her family to speak fluent English poses with her father (L), Jagdish Sachdeva, who is a farmer, and her mother (R), Anita Sachdeva, who is a village council chief, in their wheat fields in Rajhedi, India on March 11, 2013. She rides a motorcycle in her wheat-growing Rajhedi village in northern state of Haryana, downloads almost everything on her smart phone and plays volleyball. But when it comes to choice of career, Sachdeva defers to her parents. A new survey says that about 84 per cent of respondents in the survey said that their family elders guided them on education and career choices. It says that aspirations are largely misaligned with the skills that India requires over the next decade, leaving many young people ill-equipped to help Indian economy grow.
