I went to attend my daughter’s result day gathering at her school. Sitting there waiting for my turn I overheard more than twice some parents fretting over the result and asking for an explanation from teachers regarding the dreaded subject “MATHS”. Most of them seemed troubled about why their kid is not doing good in maths when he is good at all other subjects. Teachers seemed equally bothered and amidst all this chaos the poor student stood like a prisoner waiting for final decision.
