FOCUS is under siege more than it has ever been in human history, we have more distractions than ever before, we need to be more focused on cultivating the skills of attention.

Do you feel when you are sitting in your classroom and the lecture is going on that your mind is somewhere else? You are physically present in the classroom but your mind is travelling elsewhere and losing your focus on where it should be. Are you disoriented in life and unable to take decisions? Well, we live in the world of distractions today and to create a focus in life seems to be like climbing a mountain. But eventually we have to climb it to rule our distractions.

The first question is to find out why are you so unfocussed in life?

1. Are you using your cell phones more than you should?
2. Are you more extra active on social media?
3. Are you eating well?
4. Are you exercising?
5. Are your friends distracting you?

Well, reasons can be many but you need to find the cause and rectify it before this crucial age takes a different turn. Cell phones are considered culprits and are the biggest distractions. A survey showed that over 70% of students silently use cell phones in classrooms. The lure of social media has taken a toll on many. With junk food on the spree a lot of you are not eating well and with lazy routines you are not even exercising and keeping yourself fit. And those of you who have a little focus are not in the right company or can’t take the peer pressure.

We are all born with same brain like that of Albert Einstein, Aryabhata, Shakespeare etc. but it’s on us how much and where all we use it. If you are losing your focus in life for some petty things that gives short lived enjoyment, which is just a very bad bargain. Being a student you are in a very crucial age of your life and you are setting up your base which needs to be strong and focused.  The way you live your life, from the career you choose all the way down to the food you eat, should fit within your values and beliefs, purpose and priorities. Being Focused and Serious in life does not mean you are UNCOOL, it’s more so an understanding that when you are studying you are just studying and nothing else and when you are playing you are just playing, nothing else. It’s in fact a more cool way to look at life. You need to be right in the very moment to live it, enjoy it, give your best and reap the best. 

Exercise and keep yourself fit not just for good looks but also for stress- free mind. Eat a healthy diet to keep your mind & body healthy.  Friends are a very important part of life but then wise men say choose your friends correctly. Those who distract you and do not add anything to your life, you need to stay away from them and choose healthy friendships that will encourage you to grow in life. 

Also an important factor is that Digital boom has changed our lives. It’s good to stay active on social media and search things on internet but you need to draw a line and don’t let it distract you from your main aim in life. Social Media will just stay there but this time of yours will never come back. So take the best from everything you have and create an aim and focus in life.

Last but not the least, increase your concentration by meditating. It’s a great way to help kill the distractions and strengthen mind to take a leap and stay focussed.
Numerous studies have shown that mindfulness meditation can improve our ability to sustain attention. The ability to concentrate on our breathing for long periods of time transfers over to other pursuits. If we can focus on a subtle object like our breath for 20 minutes, think how easy it will be to focus on sports, studies, work, or anything else for that matter.

What the future has in store for Chemical Engineering?

What the future has in store for Chemical Engineering?

The most popular college major choice for high school seniors, the majority of whom already have a career in mind—is engineering. But it’s hard to come to terms with your own chosen field of study when there are less job prospects. However engineering is a very evolving field and has always grown, sometimes more and sometimes less.

Job growth from 2010 to 2015 has been in the double digits in four occupations: petroleum engineers (30%), mining and geological engineers (12%), biomedical engineers (10%), and industrial engineers (10%). But every engineering occupation has added jobs, the most coming among mechanical engineers (21,500 new jobs since 2010). As a whole, engineering jobs have grown 7%.

In our special series – ENGINEERING SPECIAL we will take you to the in depths of job prospects of every engineering field for you to decide, which field of study fits in best with your passion and job prospects.  
Twenty or 30 years ago, most chemical engineers had two basic choices. They worked in the chemical industry for companies or they worked in the petroleum industry for oil companies. Today the choices are much broader, and involve fields as diverse as food, biomedical, and semiconductors

1. Biotechnology

 With being  No. 1 producer of Hepatitis B vaccine recombinant and Third biggest biotech industry in the Asia-Pacific region Bio technology is a rampantly evolving industry. The sector has seen high growth with a CAGR in excess of 20% and the key drivers for growth in the biotech sector are increasing investments, outsourcing activities, exports and the government’s focus on the sector. Major recruiters include industries engaged in processing and developing agricultural and biological products, bio-processing industries, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. There are ample opportunities in industries producing healthcare products, textile industry, cosmetics and organisations engaged in different types of industrial research and development. These days a growing number of qualified biotechnical professionals are engaged by different industries for environment protection activities and for the safe disposal of hazardous materials.

2. Genetic Pharmer

Farmers of the future will not only raise livestock and agricultural crops, they will also grow plants than have been genetically engineered to grow therapeutic proteins, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Hence they are Genetic ‘Pharmers’! Chemical engineers are already working on producing vaccine carrying plants. A recent example of this has come to light in the ebola epidemic; tobacco plants have been engineered to grow the antibodies for the ebola serum. This will be a key area in the future, where chemical engineers can have a huge role driving these processes further to achieve better results.

3. Nano Technology 

The explosion of technological advances in nanotechnology will lead to opportunities arising for chemical engineers to lead the way. With advances in nanotechnology already offering a huge range of nanoscale processes, a new group of nano-chemical engineers will be required to manufacture these systems. Also, research labs and institutions such as IISc, TIFR, NCBS, IITs etc are performing excellent research in India. The areas where a nanotechnologist can seek employment include biotechnology, agriculture, food, genetics, space research, medicine and so on. Job opportunities are also available in National Physical Laboratory, Indian Institute of Astrophysics. Candidates with Ph.D. can also join as faculty members in colleges.


The current scenario of space industry in India is very promising. India’s space programme stands out as one of the most cost-effective in the world. 33 countries and three multinational bodies have formal co-operative arrangements in place with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Also with 30 spacecraft in differing orbital paths, more space engineers are required to keep everything in place. Chemical engineers are currently working to find new sources for fuels e.g. bio-refineries, wind farms, hydrogen cells, algae factories and fusion technology. These could be applied to fuel space travel. With the prime objective of ISRO is to develop space technology and its application to various national tasks new jobs for chemical engineers are on the radar..

5. Climate Change Reversal Engineers

 Chemical engineers are currently working on models that predict the outcomes of climate change and developing strategies to combat it. In the future they will need to work to develop long-term strategies to intervene before an anticipated climatic disaster occurs, to deal with climate events that are already happening and to try to help locations that have been devastated by climate change. This work will typically involve developing energy strategies, refining alternative energy systems or protecting and rebuilding ecosystems.

There were many more areas I could see chemical engineers leading the way in, for example; Energy Storage, Zero Water Strategies, Alternative Food Design, Disposal Textiles Design, Land Fill Reclaim and GM Food.

However, some aspects of chemical engineering will never change. We will always need waste engineers, drug developers, researchers and food processors.
