      This incident shows that ruling cl is aware with the poor conditions of government schools, but they have got no clue how to improve it. India produces great saints, scientists, musicians etc. but alas this country does not produce great rulers and administrator to rule a country. The first sign of a great ruler is that he thinks all the residents of the state are his own family members. The day this wisdom comes in the heart of a ruler, he will be great what so ever his education or capacity. Every woman whether educated or uneducated is fit to look after her own children. Similarly the day a ruler thinks that all people are his family members, God will give him wisdom and resources to perform is duty as a ruler.
