I finished my MA last year. I want to do some business in my hometown. Is it possible for me to open an oxygen parlour in my town? Where can I get the details and how much do I have to invest?

M. Kalyani Namakkal

The first oxygen parlour in India was started in Delhi. You can correspond directly with the National Oxygen Bar Association for further information.

I would like to know from where I can get the prospectus for SAT- I, SAT-II, and TOEFL.

Ashish Kamalasanan Raipur

You can contact or correspond directly with the Institute of Psychological and Education Measurement (IPEM), 119/25-A, Mahatma Gandhi Marg Allahabad-211001 (U.P.), India, E-mail or you can visit their website for further information.

I am a 29-year-old BSc Honours graduate (with Chemistry, Botany and Zoology). I want to do either MCA from Madras University or a Masters in Human Rights (2 years) from Pondicherry University. Both the courses are through distance education. I want to know about the job prospects of both the courses considering the fact that these are not regular classes and Human Rights is a newly introduced subject. Is there an age bar for such professionals in private organisations? What other certificate/ diploma/ specialisation course should I take along with it?

Pramod Kumar Singh


It would be more viable to do an MCA as it will definitely ensure better career prospects. A course in Human Rights would prepare you for work that would be oriented towards social welfare and may require you to work with welfare or voluntary organisations. There is no age bar for seeking employment in the private sector. Though additional courses may not be necessary, an MCA would necessitate that you spend considerable time in perfecting your programming skills. Graduates with mathematics background, either in their intermediate or graduate level can take up MCA.
