    I scored less in maths in my 2nd PUC board exam , not because my answer was wrong , it's just because I didn't solve in the way, how it was solved in textbook.

    A very important point here, about 'Art'. Art and is so stereotyped and misunderstood in the Indian psyche (its all over the world but India holds distinction in it) that its nothing short of a national tragedy. Art is not just about becoming a painter or a musician. Its about how you look at life and your place in it. It should be a part of the mighty syllabus in all academic pursuits.

    If cricket is introduced in Indian schools then after knowing that cricketers can earn more money than an Engineer or a Doctor, Every child will be forced to take cricket field. And then govt. will introduce a degree for cricket. After that in upcoming yrs India will produce max. No. Of cricketers but then we have the worst indian cricket team bcz many good cricketers will not able to clear theoretical exams in which toppers have answered all questions as they are good at remembering the things taught in the classroom in blackboard- bench form.
