Results of the Class XII Exams – the other side

Now that the results of the CBSE exams for Class XII are out, and some have performed better than others, it is time to introspect in retrospect. There are many reason, I believe for which some students have scored higher than others. I will list some of them here:- 1. The results you got is directly proportional to the hard work you put in. 2. The percentage obtained is similar to the circle of students you befriended. 3. The result is dependent on the quality of education ( in schools) and tuitions you received. 4.

And strangely, when a coalition government is lasting the full tenure, we start to treat and evaluate it as a single party governme

Bharat and India

As I was traveling from Lutyen's Delhi towards National Capital Region of Ghaziabad, I could at once see Bharat and India. Two of them separated but lying next to each other.

But, as I crossed ITO, I could see the real Bharat [ in urban terms], which is responsible for the entrepreneurship and economic prosperity saddled with poor infrastructure, lack of planning, pollution, no green cover and abundant chaos.
