These Indian parents are a bit refined

  On November 15, 2022, the United Nations announced that the global population had crossed the “eight billion” mark. Among them, China, India and the United States rank among the top three in terms of population.
  According to India’s current population growth rate, it is not a problem at all to become the number one in the world.
  Where there are many people, the competition will be particularly fierce. India should be a typical example.
  For example, in the past few years, Asian American organizations have been fighting against the “admission discrimination” of the Ivy League schools. Some studies from the private sector have found that Asian-American students score 140 points higher on the SAT (known as the “American college entrance examination”) than whites, 270 points higher than Hispanics, and 450 points higher than African-Americans if they want to enter the same schools. just work. This portion of excess points is known as the “Asian tax.”
  Of course, it must be noted here that admission to prestigious American schools is a comprehensive judgment model, and SAT is not the only standard.
  What’s more interesting is that some statistics have found that among Asians, Chinese are not necessarily the highest scorers, but Indians are. For example, when applying for graduate school, the GRE, GMAT or LAST of Indians in a broad sense (including Indian students from India or Indians in the United States) are all leveraged, not lower than Chinese students at all. According to the joke, Indians applying for graduate school have to pay another “Indian tax” on the basis of the “Asian tax”.
  Because a country with a large population is too cumbersome. In the past many years, India’s domestic economic growth has been very unstable, resulting in a serious shortage of domestic jobs, especially jobs for the middle class. At the same time, coupled with the excessive control of the economy by large private families, there are also insufficient entrepreneurial opportunities-the Indian “unicorns” that we have seen are hot in the international financial market, not every Indian entrepreneur can have them. Therefore, Indians especially like to study abroad, so when applying to any famous British and American schools, the competition among Indians will be extremely fierce.
  However, for some other Indians, they found a better way to get their children out of the “Indian tax”. The life story of the new British Prime Minister and his wife is an example.
Where there are many people, the competition will be particularly fierce. India should be a typical example.

  Rishi Sunak (Rishi Sunak) is the first Asian Prime Minister in British history. He was born in 1980 and was only 42 years old. Sunak’s grandparents and maternal grandparents are Indians, and later went to work in East Africa to make a living. In Tanzania and Kenya, they gave birth to Sunak’s parents respectively. In the generation of his parents, the Sunak family immigrated to the UK and gave birth to him in the UK. From the struggle history of the Sunak family, it can be seen that every step of the family actually increases the probability of their descendants being admitted to prestigious British and American schools.
  As a British citizen, the probability of being admitted to Oxford is definitely much higher than as an Indian. In middle school, his parents spent a lot of money to send Sunak to Winchester Public School, so he was closer to Oxford, known as the cradle of British politicians. The probability of students from this public school being admitted to Oxford and Cambridge once exceeded 33%, that is, almost one out of three students was admitted, which is very exaggerated.
  Sunak’s wife is from the real upper class in India. As the daughter of the “Indian version of Bill Gates” (her father is the core founder of Infosys, India’s most well-known software company), she directly completed her university studies in the United States and worked for several years. , and then enter the top Stanford Business School. Here, she met Sunak, who came from a British noble high school and Oxford University, and spoke British English without an Indian accent.
  It can be seen that, unlike Indian tycoons who were born in the middle class of India, such as Google CEO Pichai, who was admitted to the Indian Institute of Technology first and then went to the United States for further studies, the Sunaks’ road to success has been more leisurely. From the beginning, I directly got rid of the desperate “rolls” that Indians have in entrance examinations and studying abroad.
  As a parent, perhaps what you should do is not to drive your children to “roll” every day, but to use your own efforts to let your children enter a competitive structure that most peers cannot enter, and effectively reduce the intensity of “roll”. In fact, the number of people is not terrible. Among the 8 billion people, there are always many lucky people who will be on the track with a greater chance of winning.
  In this sense, some Indian parents are quite sophisticated.
