"Hustle" is the buzzword of the twenty-first century. We must prepare our children to take over from the current generation of hustlers.
"When you all have kids, it's important to let them win," President Obama said to his White House interns in 2012. "Until they're a year old. Then start winning."

Last September, my friend's husband got a highly coveted well-paying job in Dubai. She was about to pack her bags, when she and her husband decided that their pre-school going son would not respond well to this sudden change in his environment, and that it was in the best interests of their child if he were to finish his school year in the same school.

In July 2020, the Union Cabinet cleared a new National Education Policy (NEP) which proposed extensive changes to India’s existing educational framework. Most of us have read about the educational framework changes recommended.
