Yesterday I heard shocking news “Tinu didn’t get admission in (so called good) school”. He was failed in the interview so they rejected him..
Tinu is three year old lovely son of my friend. He is very talkative; full of questions. He loves to talk a lot; anyone who can keep a distance and doesn’t try to hold him can easily talk with him. He can identify colours, animals, alphabets, numbers and all the things, which a three year old should know. He was waiting for last 6 months or so for his turn to go to school..
His parents were quite confident that he will be through with interview. But he could not…his only crime was that he cried in front of interviewers..
What else one should expect from a 3 year old when he had waited for 1 hour for his turn and then was pushed in the room alone (his parents not allowed to accompany him), where 6 unknown eyes were staring at him and shooting questions at him!!!

Probably the neck tied and starched sareeid educationist interviewers can know what makes them to torture such small kids. They argue that they can’t admit everybody but they can’t interview the little ones either. They must adopt some other methods (may be a lucky draw) to choose the kids..
All the requests from his parents to give him a second chance as his elder brother also studies in the same school …were in vain..
The wonderful little kid had to face his first failure in our cruel education system..


  • rachana, could anyone tell the interviewer that , even he/she did the same thing which the little kid has done(crying) at that particular stage. this is disgusting.

  • Interview of such a small child is ridiculous in itself. But things cant be helped.
    We live in a country where 2 lakh people sit for engineering entrances and only 3000 get selected. So compition is cut throat.
    Look at things from the colleges or schools perspective probably we will see different light.

  • "but things can't be helped"????? com on You are an iitian! come up with up some solution..One can not deny a lit kid his primary education (of some standard)in the name of population..The problem is the 3000 selected sudents get away with thier lives and dont think about the remaining 1 lakh 97000..

  • Didnt read your reply earlier. Some how reached this page again. I think i wrote the answer to your problem, Look at the problem from the perspective of the school or college.
    As a good institute, its imperative for you to take the best. And in India best doesnt only mean in terms of talent. It also means in terms of 'JACK' and 'CHEQUE' also.
    Everyone thinks that his children is the best. As a school if 300 people come to you for admission and you have only 50 seats what would you do, and mind you whatever may be the case, you have to take the BEST.

    Regarding 97,000...I would make that figure 2,97000 for this year. Life is tough and everyone doesnt get what he deserves and some people get what they dont deserve.

    The only solution to this problem of compitition i can see, is public private partnership for education. It still would take a lot of time and till then these 2,97,000 people have to suffer.Who is to blame!! i dont know
