Specialized education

In a recent address to Tibetan university students in Delhi, HH the Dalai Lama stressed on the importance of specialized education for young Tibetans. This is not his first mention and nor it will be his last. 50 years in exile, the Tibetan society has improved tremendously on literacy rate. Every year hundreds of Tibetan students go to colleges as they graduated high school and around the same number of students  completed their 3 year college degrees in India and come back to soceity to serve. But how many of them have successfully took up positions or  the challenge  to serve. It is not the mumber of graduates that counts, but the quality of their education and the skill that that they brings to put to use. That is why specialized education is the  buzz word.
