With the simmering summer heat, a sizable portion of Indian parents is pondering on how to tackle another dilemma, the college admissions for their kids. While the school going kids are enjoying their holidays in full swing, their elder brothers and sisters are scampering for cover from their parent’s questions and ire. It is at this time that they make decisions that would make or break their careers.
