But think of this guy. Probably he is better off as a cab driver in Sydney, than in Pak Army .
Though if he were a higher ranked officer, he might get a better life (all know Army is supreme in Pak)

Re: Former Pakistani Cricketer Arshad Khan Is Now An Uber Driver In Sydney

i remember even Doordarshan showing the pitiful state of ex-sportspersons long back like the brother of DHyan Chand, who was a peon and one former wrestler who had a street named after him, but was selling vegetables.

It is probably, better now. Both the sportspersons are cleverer now and there are more sports guys in Railways, IOC, etc. i remember meeting one guy who was employed by customs in the sports quota!

Re: Former Pakistani Cricketer Arshad Khan Is Now An Uber Driver In Sydney

Poor state of affairs...

But it is we who have made this situation. We Indians pay way too much attention to cricket and have made it a national religion. We dont care for any other sport.

So other sports like boxing, wrestling, athletics, etc have no chance to survive in India ... far less the poor boxers, wrestlers, athletes et al.

Now it has gone beyond control - interest in cricket cannot be controlled now.
What govt should do now , is to support players from other sport. Have similar structure as cricket wherein players start getting benefit once they reach a certain level.

Re: Former Pakistani Cricketer Arshad Khan Is Now An Uber Driver In Sydney

One keeps hearing of the disinterest of youth in joining armed forces, since defense are unbiased to caste, religion and such foolishness, it makes for a compelling case to recruit such able bodied men. Do Indian armed forces have recruiters who and speak to the youth about wonderful career options in defense? I have met many defense recruiters in US, they even come to university campuses in career fairs.

Now with OROP being granted it should serve as an incentive to join defense, serve nation, and have a rewarding career.

I think army is overstaffed with Jawans and understaffed with officers

They have more officers per regiment and more pilots/squadron compared to us. It is number one profession there. If one looks at soldier ratio, they have standing army of 6Lakhs for 18 crore people, we have 11 Lakhs for 120 crore

Is there any 'scope' in India besides engineering and doctor?
We indians go where money is, a state gives chance to every idea to proliferate such thing is not available in India

Disinterested as joining in officer ranks. When Rs 80K can be earned by sitting in office by double degree of Engineering and MBA
Why go to Siachen or Tripura as posting?

True, engineers are mostly unemployable unless in IT.
