Commentary: Author makes an interesting observation when he says the present education system of india promotes a malevolent hierarchial system among the students of the class much resembling our caste system. Please do look out for how he notes that our colonial masters realised it long back in 1904. The most thought provoking idea would be that taken from Alberuni’s travelogue through which he identifies indians as people, who are unwilling to invest themeslves in a matter involving change.
