The Indian edge in education

Johnny can't add but Suresh Venktasubramanian can
An American points out that India is not merely a land of ghastly poverty but "a country with a lot of very bright people who want to get ahead." Couldn't have said it better.

Speaking of education, however flawed our Indian system of education might be, Indians value knowledge and in the quest for knowledge, they overcome most odds. While most American children are switching channels on TV or hooked on playing three dimensional games, a majority of their Indian counterparts are busy learning multiplication tables or trying to master a new language. Children studying in Indian schools may not have up-to-date computer labs and facilities but they do have a better and solid foundation when it comes to mathematics and science.

Now, theres another good reason to go back.
