India became a democracy only in the 20th century. Before that the country was divided into provinces and kingdoms ruled by Kings. A Rajguru was appointed in each kingdom to give him advices, a minister to assist the king in implementing rules and regulations, a military or police general and force to keep the boundaries of the country and implementing law and order, a set of people (businessmen) to collect and sell essential materials to the people and another set of people (servants) to do other jobs like servants. In short, the types of jobs were very few, the population was small, and their wishes were limited.
Today the scene has changed. The country has developed tremendously. Instead of one king, there is a government with lot of officers, bureaucrats and political leaders on the scene. The requirement of modern support people has increased. Population has increased many folds. The need of luxuries has increased, people have become more complacent, and their health has deteriorated which has brought new equipments and gadgets in the market other than super specialty hospitals. So every field requires specialists. To cater to these requirements new type of educational institutions has come into being. With computers entering this scenario, a new professional ethics and work culture was instated. With every year there is new technology coming in and new people required to take this forward. This has opened up enormous fields of employment. And this has also led to a choice of careers available for the youth. But it has become increasingly difficult for them to choose the right career for themselves. The importance of astrology comes into the picture here. Only astrology can guide people in choosing the right education and right profession.
