indian education system has a lot of flaws and you should also understand that it is not inclusive at all. the difference between wages earned by the top 1% vs the bottom 1% must be atleast 10000 times more than it is in the us.

what we are forgetting is that india has a population of 1.15 billion :) and its educational standards according to that number is really low and yes, most of indian students are unimaginative, but its not their fault, its the fault of the education system that makes them like that, otherwise we definitely would be the best in the world - it is the same reason why we produce some of world's best management gurus, doctors, engineers. its because we are talented but we don't get the resources we need, when we eventually do (within the next 25-30 years) we will be the best because the numbers add up :) it just makes statistical sense :)

excellent documentary though...want to make one on the indian education system exclusively? you are welcome here :) i would love to help you around if i get time enough.

by the way, keep a watch for this movie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1187043/
and you will learn a lot about our loopholes

Well teachers in India do not strike work, but professors do. Such as the hallowed profs at the world renowned IITs - they do go on strike. I wonder what kind of role models we are trying to offer to the younger generation.
