But funnily, on the other hand, Indians on Twitter have been raving about government jobs because “job security”. Would a candidate like Parag Agrawal ever get fired if he had a government job in India? Probably not. And his elimination from the ‘throne’ went on to prove what our parents’ and grandparents’ generations believe in – government jobs are better than private jobs.
