Gripping,realistic,and a true image of the education in India!!
23 September 2016 | by abbievasSee all my reviews

Right from the beginning of watching this documentary i was half expecting what i saw. Having studied in India till my SSC i knew the pressures that existed and then moving to England made me observe the differences between the two educational scenarios. I am of the opinion that an education like medicine doesn't only require knowledge but also a much deeper understanding of what it is to be selfless at all times and at all costs!You can receive knowledge from anywhere, but knowledge without understanding and experiences is worthless. This is the key issue highlighted by this documentary how some of the so called "brightest minds" are so vulnerable to suicide, an issue that can be solved with the right approach and understanding. Hats off to the maker of the documentary for this idea and bringing it out with such purity. Brilliant work!!!
