Medicine and engineering have long been the two 'most wanted' careers for middle class India [ Images ].

Slowly and steadily, though, engineering seems to be gaining ground. Four years of engineering study at a decent college fetches you a well-paying job.

Or one can choose to go abroad for further studies with a good possibility of financial aid and a quick job.

Five years of basic medical study -- even from the best institution -- gets you nowhere.

You have to do a post graduate specialisation (another three years). Preferably, you must also go in for 'super-specialisation' (another two years).

Engineering is the good option than medicine. It has some fixed timings and mostly collective job. Where as medicine it has no timings at any time ready to serve a sensitive field where the result may be very crusial. Engeneering all in mostly one mould the site and the work may different but the job more or less the same repeating.

Medicine - The career starts after 30 - 35 years i.e you finish your MBBS by 23. Practice for 2 years or to opt for MS which will again take 3 years. If it is earlier, you will be about 26 or 28 when you finish MS. You have to practice a lot to become renowned and start your own clinic. So it takes 5 to 7 years. If you are that patient enough, you will be rewarded.

Engineering, career starts after 23 years and good pay if you join good companies.

But, Doctors are always special. If you are known as Dr. Sheetal, it will make you and your family proud. Country needs more doctors.

Evaluate your own qualities first. If you think you will find more interest in engineering, choose, but if you have aptitude for medical line, go for it. If you are capable to choose any one of them, I would prefer to suggest you to choose medical line; because you can not only earn better; you will have satisfaction after you cure some one. and above all, the person blesses you whom you cure with interest and not only for money. Whereas in engineering you are never going to get this spiritual blessing from any one. Good wishes are costlier than money. So, here is a good wish for you from me, just now.
