Twist..

Thomas Friedman in the New York Times....

"When we were young kids growing up in America, we were told to eat ourvegetables at dinner and not to leave them. Mothers said, 'think of thestarving children in India and finish the dinner.'And now I tell my children: 'Finish your maths homework. Think of the children in India who would make you starve, if you don't. "

What do yo think?

A little hype, A little exaggeration and only a bit true! Indians have achieved much but not true as Thomas Friedman said!
