How many of our of kids lose themselves at the production line that is school; expected to excel in things they have no interest or aptitude in and punished when they fall short in an arbitrary competency marking scale?
How many of our students hate books because they were thrown at their faces for a spelling mistake or an incomplete answer?

How many potential writers, painters, social workers and entrepreneurs were sacrificed to amass engineering and medical degrees? How many children sacrifice every waking hour to realise their parents' dream of a professional degree? How many children are mad…

Start-up-India-Action-Plan
