When a child learns something out of interest and context, it is natural for him and does not even need to WORK.
Ask someone who goes to hike the mountains because he loves it. That is not Hard work for him.
Every child and human being should get same opportunity. Where he chooses a profession which suits him and interests him so it does not become a drag to live with it.
That is natural process.
If we act against the natural process, because the other option seems more enticing. We are basically slipping into the zone where we have to swim agains the flow of the river.
We might make progress, but the effort will be multifold and result will of tiny fraction.
