“I know about these people, I studied sociology and read about them in textbooks and learned about them,” the sweating, bespectacled man huffed, walking quickly to keep pace.
“Do you know primary education in India is free? And these people don’t even send their children to school. They just want them to do the same work they’re doing, picking up trash,” the man informed.
Later, Shashi Pandit smiled at the recounting of what the man had said. “Yes, public education is free, but many times the children go and the teacher is not even there. Or the teacher leaves early, or doesn’t do anything. It really is no education at all.”
“We need education for our children, but the school are too far or not good.”
