    N on growing pvt tutorial n coaching classes who compet with each other to grow their business by putting up hoardings of students scoring highest marks which create in security n inferiority complex in an average student n poo parents who can't afford high fees for coaching classes.. Its really a shame as education has become a business..

    I went through this hell. I pulled out my daughter out of this system. We are now living in a free country where she will learn arts and music, and be an astrophysicist at the same time.

    Hope many parents who are setting undue expectations see this and understand. To take right decisions for their children.

    Now they they have seen someone with a fictional "Entire Political Science" degree become the Supreme Leader of the world's most populous democracy, while claiming to be a tea seller -- students should stop hopefully obsessing over marks.
