    PLEASE north Indians… PLEASE learn to pronounce non-north Indian names and words correctly.
    For instance,
    It is C.V. Raaman (रामन), not रमन,
    it is Chidambaram (चिदम्बरम), not चिदाम्बरम,
    the dish is pronounced saambaar (साम्बार) not साम्बर .
    Or are north Indians too arrogant (or lazy) to learn to pronounce correctly?

  2. As a kid I feel studies quite bored. And I am not a backbencher at all. I am a topper. I don’t like to study in school or about school. I like to learn from encyclopaedias, google, YouTube, and the outer world.

  3. Indian kid – "Mom, I wanna do some research and be a great Innovator. I wanna have few patents on my name and bring forth a positive change into the lives of millions."
    Flying Chappal received
    Mom's reply – "Study hard.. get good grades, be a doctor or Engineer. Look at Sharma ji's son and learn something from him. Get a job and get married soon. Your life will be set after that."

  4. Here In India PhD has gone worst. Yaa it's very true research is all about making ur Excel and ppt files good. The various rules like clearing jrf etc… should be removed. Basically for a researcher has to discover something new then how a single entrance exam can justify that. Secondly, Indians are only running around money, position and secure life. Here knowledge and research doesn't matter. Everybody is in a race.

  5. We the citizens of Bangladesh, neighbor country of Great India,feel proud of India and its multi dimensional culture and ancient history as well as heritage.We also expect Indian same feeling about My Dear Motherland , Bangladesh…thanks to you and India…

  6. I dnt know how india will change its behaviour on research nd it's impact..
    As the soul of education is rigged nd distarous..chaplusi nd interference of politics is making things worse…

  7. The truth is, innovators think differently, and thoughts come to them in a different form from a different place. Most people will never be able to do it and they will never understand it. It's the same issue that China has .. they don't understand it either, so rely on numbers to achieve something similar, but it still largely copying. There is a reason why most of the innovation comes from the west, but even most of the west still don't get it. And there is also a reason why most of the innovation in the west comes from men specifically .. and feminists will always struggle to understand it. The few of us that have it, do understand it, but we cannot change the rest of you, it doesn't work like that. It does not come from the brain, but you still won't understand even that.

  8. Indian educated student gets no respect and value in India then go to foreign country and make fortune and ceo of global country, who is responsible , politics, lack of will power, lack of support,. Castism, favouring family

  9. Prominent topic to be considered as grave importance needs from government of India to take serious steps to improve R&D facility by investing at 4% of GDP.
