4) A subject called 'Hobby School' should be made compulsory in all government schools and colleges, and recommended for all private schools.
This subject will attract the youngsters. Hobby School will be different for different ages. Here the student will choose each year, a different hobby to learn and practise. The List of Hobbies, developed by the Skill India mission, will, at the lower classes, include skills in short supply such as plumbing, electrical, carpentry, mason, gardening/farming, cooking etc, which are in perennial short supply, and can easily be practised in school.
At the higher levels, it will include higher order skills in short supply such as writing, AI, customer service, research and development, problem solving, team leading, installation of different types of plants, project planning and management, starting new small businesses etc.
