  1. Lakshman Anand’s picture of the Gujarat classroom is cute. There’s a bored student in the background stretching his arms, and the curious kid in the foreground has her shoes not on her feet but on the bench in her front. Relaxed class.

  2. Oldtimer,

    The person in the backyard is more likely to be the teacher. But I spent a lot of time wondering what the shoes were doing on the desk…

  3. Ananth,

    Criticising the UPA budget is the subject of a multiple volume book. The fertiliser subsidy is only the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
