A Kolkata-based teenager identified as Shouvik Dutta had recently posted about a Zomato delivery guy who was ‘overqualified’ to be doing that job. In a post that’s spread like wildfire on the internet, Dutta wrote, “It was one of those usual checkouts ordering food when I was taken aback after I was updated with the details of my delivery agent.”
FYI, the food delivery app allows its customers to know basic details about the delivery agent and the teenager Dutta stumbled upon it only to get shell-shocked for a moment.
The delivery guy by the name of Meraj, who could fluently speak Hindi and Bengali did his post graduation in Commerce. “We had a quick chat where I got to know he was an M.Com graduate from Calcutta University and also done PGDM in Finance or Investment banking something similar,” wrote Dutta.
“What have we done to this country, what have we done to this state where a Master’s Graduate delivers food to the regular Undergraduate Teenager” he conveyed.
This incident came to light after a report that reflects the reality of the unemployment rate in India at a 45-year-high of 6.1% in 2017-’18. The report went on to show that the unemployment rate among the youth was at a higher level as compared to previous years and “much higher compared to that in the overall population”.
One more shocking report revealed that people with educational qualifications like M.Tech, B.Tech, and MBA, postgraduates including the graduates have applied for posts of ‘sweepers and sanitary workers’ in the Tamil Nadu Assembly Secretariat. This clearly shows the ugly face of unemployment.
