    After 12th which field is better? Homeopathic or vatenari.
    Please give me answer.
    Thank you……

    • Soumya Daskabiraj says:

      You can go for Homeopathy or Veterinary.. Veterinary is better because of its employing ability- as the students are in few numbers,so a veterinarian can get a job more easily than a Homeopath.
      But Homeopathy is far more interesting subject . You can also get jobs with this too-but chances are limited. If once your private practice be clicked, then you will be very satisfied cause of its huge return- economically, socially and mentally too.
      Whatever you will do, must do with loving nature- only then you will be successful.
      Good Luck.
