Indian Textbooks Push Colourism

A textbook in West Bengal used a Black person to illustrate the meaning of "ugly". This is how Indian education teaches children they were born in the wrong skin.

    I always use word kali chamdi to those people who openly say muslim to go pakistan and say all muslims converted ( genetic data give other thing go to y Haplogroup at Wikipedia) ...but on the other hand same natonlist people on Quora filled comments section that they are from central Asia, they are kulin, they are from indo Europeans......but the fact of the matter is that all the central Asia and west Europe turkey, azarbezan etc become hardcore Muslim. In shorts all ancestors of central Asian ethnicity claimers of india become Muslim ....that is who's your daddy?

    In hindi,there was a lesson about koyal the bird. And the writer was keep praising the bird . Koyal is very good, always listen to their mother, good in nature n many more thing. But truth is that koyal have only sweet voice. Except that she don't care about her own kids. I am an NRI, my kids are doing study in india school cbse here, and their friends are some are from British school, some are different. In all schools they need to write point to point answers, and emphasise on creativity. But we need to keep writing , long answers. My kids have more school hours, heavy bags. Also their exams finish in 5 days , but in cbse school, they have more than 15 exams. Whole month kids are in pressure, keep study n study. But their friends they are learning + enjoying their life. I really feel we need to improve our education system. Where kids learn somthing new and creative.

    Will you say handsome (instead of ugly) to avoid Racism. Will you teach your children the skin of black/yellow as white to avoid racism. Then, we are giving the knowledge of falsehood - an education with full of manipulations.

    So sad and so unfortunate. No wonder why India could not stand up and support the Blacklivesmatter movement. The colonial education system left a huge inferiority complex in colonies.
