I was using Microsoft office 2003 and recently I got a mail in which a file with the extension with .docx was attached. I downloaded the file eagerly to read it, but while opening the file, I found difficulty as some error messages were shown. When I opened it I saw a corrupted file with some unknown characters. The file was of utter importance to me and I was really disappointed at not being able to open the file.

After consulting with some of the friends they told me that .docx is a file format which was accompanied with Microsoft Office 2007 and was not compatible with the previous versions of Microsoft Office. They asked me to open the file and save the file with .doc extension. I did the same, but my efforts went in vain as I was not able to view the original content of the file.

Education is the major backbone of a civilized society and brings a different and unique culture into the society.  In India there are a large number of Universities / colleges which offers varied and quality higher education, irrespective of caste and religion. So there has never been any difficulty in selecting the desired course and colleges.

But this is not the case with every one, as a large number of efficient and bright students are deprived of the  quality higher education due to financial drawbacks. Many of the students are not able to afford the fees of higher education and they are forced to study some other courses which are of no values and interest.

This situation can be reduced to a good extend by making use of some of the available scholarship programmes in India. Here I would like to list 5 of the major Scholarship programmes in India, which can help the deserving and financially backward students towards fulfilling their dreams.
