A conversation with Prudential: As people are living longer, how can we plan for a retirement that could last up to 30 years or more?
Education is primarily important. People should try to learn the basics of financial management so that others wont be able to dominate their thought process while selecting an investment plan. Keep a certain portion of your money invested in government securities that will ensure that it does not bite the dust (even in times of recession.) Cut out on the unnecessary expenses (it varies from person to person) and invest those savings wisely. Try to go for multiple sources of income by utilising your free time in developing your creative instincts and being updated with the developments in the economy. This is will yield results in the long run Invest in the stock market in long term securities. They are generally low priced in the beginning. Go for short term stocks as well but make sure you quit after a desirable return on investment. With proper planning your investment will definitely multiple in the long run.

Is History an important subject in school? Or should we be focusing on the future?
Lets take it the Corporate Strategy way. First we should know about our past (History) to understand what we are. Then we should focus on the future (what we want to achieve). Only then can the strategy be implemented. History helps to preserve our language, culture,. traditions and ethics. We should modify ourselves according to the changing times but should never stay rigid. Future and Past and related in some way which makes the study of history absolutely essential.

Teaching : A Profession by Choice or by Chance
I'll speak about India as I don't have an idea about the situation in other countries in this regard. In India dirty politics is responsible for the lack of quality teachers. In Govt ridden schools caste politics is predominant while selecting the teaching staff. When it comes to colleges its the politics of the NET and SET exam. As such good teachers tired of politics prefer to enter the corporate. Those who are still inclined towards education leave our country and settle either in the US or the Gulf. There is shortage of good teaching staff out there. Its been observed that many Indians have become Deans or HOD's in other countries.
