Reading this gave me an idea which I what to share with you all here.
Those pupils who were not particularly "noticeable" in schools who have
eventually become researchers, doctors and so on should make it a point
that in their life time they go to the schools they studied in and share
their experience to the students and teachers. I consider this as a
meaningful contribution one can give to the education system. I am sure
many of us here would fall in to this "not noticeable" category in high
school. I include myself for the simple reason that I am able to talk to
you like this. This simple fact itself does put me in more advantageous
position than my classmates. In India getting access to Email discussions
itself is a privilege. When I talk of myself I can say that I am one of
the few (may be around 10 out of 80 - In my high school there were 80
pupils in my section, I mean class, right from VI to X standard) who have
such privilege.
