The basis of education is the “Three Rs”; ironically, reading, writing, and arithmetic don’t quite spell the way they sound. The first reference to the “Three Rs” dates back to the end of the 18th century, a speech by an MP, Sir Richard Curtis.

Anyone who grasps these basics has a foundation to move into more specialist subjects.…Continue

It was heartbreaking to read today's Times of India article regarding India's poor show in press freedom ranking of nations. I am counting on current students who will be architects of future India to change that. It is quite amazing to see most young Indians, despite all systemic handicaps of public education system, move into salary earning roles. Although National Skill Development Corporation is making good progress with National Occupational Standards, I wish we had started earlier.…Continue

Two notes from the piece.
"The other day, I overheard two parents talking about their sons. One mom turned to the other and shrieked, “I found him in his room, just sitting there. Not doing anything!” The other gasped and shook her head in disbelief.
Their sons are 6 years old."
