    Well, thats true. The society here dont give a shit if you work online and earn good money. They will still question behind your back about your degree if not infront of you. Some will even Pity you because they think you dont earn much(I dont showoff my earnings on Billboards here so they are not aware of how much i earn and they dont know the potential of online job).

    Every parents discuss about what your son is doing. If you say he is a MBA or Engineering or IAS(Most respected) guy then you will be saluted for your work even after you dont get a job(only 2% placement in most of the colleges here)

    So fellas, if you want to get married, want to get a good girl, want to get a good status in the society, atleast get a degree for namesake otherwise thing will turn hard for you

    I wish I was born in India, I would fake lots of degree papers hanging them around me and be surrounded by beautiful Indian girls all of the time. Without having a job.

    I disagree. Degrees won't get you anywhere if your face is unbearable.

    Luckily, we don't have this problem in the UK since parents don't have much control over their children!

    I dropped out of school with no qualifications but no one really questions me. It is all about the job you have in the UK, not the degree.

    Why care about what people say to you man? The kind of freedom and earning potential that IM allows often matches and even exceeds the earning capabilities of the guys with degrees from best colleges. Stop paying attention to what people think about you and just keep on doing your own thing.

    You know what you can do. Come to the USA. Get a fake degree. Go back to India and get a nice job with that degree. The place where you get your degree can even verify it to your employers. It would take a while to find out if it was fake. Have you heard of some people working for NASA etc or for the goverment with fake degrees. In India they would never know because you got it in the USA and they make it very realistic with your teachers name your grades the location of the school and even the phone number so even if your employer tries to verify it, the place where you got your degree will verify it. They are "private" schools you could say but they will give your degree in a month for a price of course.

    Why do you care what other people think?

    Spend your time hanging around with people who respect you for who you are, not people who expect you to conform to their views of what is "successful".

    But, why would you? You have great freedom when working in IM, you (hopefully) make very nice bank, but you still want to throw it all away?

    It is easy to say "why care" when you come from a culture like in the UK and US, but in places like India it is(as far as i know) a very different culture with different religions and values. I know of Indian families who are very family orientated and family honor is very important. In the UK, we don't speak of family honor and many families are broken with single mothers and education is often not of as high importance as other things.

    So yeah, for me, i don't have to care because others dont seem to care that much, but in other cultures you will be scrutinised as a family member if you are not of higher standing and having a son or daughter without a degree can be shunned upon by others and lower the family's standing.
