Having grudge over education system is commonplace in almost all the societies, I guess, since the perception of quality has no commonly accepted standard. and gross comments like "
It becomes more scary when you stand at the end of your educational life and earned nothing literally but wasted time" are also very common.

There are significant amount of debate about the purpose of education among pundits. Some says education is to prepare a human being to become a human being (vague, isn't it?), some says Education is to install values. Others are angry as Education solely aims to make good executives/workers etc. 

And we've examples of successful persons, who have depended less on education. There is a nice saying that "Properly educated peoples are self educated". So, I'm not trying to counter your arguments/grudges on the ground that our education system is finer, rather, I'm trying to say that this type of anger/disappointment has become a cliche, especially in South Asia.

I'm expecting deeper thoughts from this Blog 🙂

p.s. 'scarier' is is less scary than 'more scary'.
