"Indians always knew everything. They invented the Pythogoras theorem. There was a plane in the Ramayana."
Not only is this unscientific and embarrassing social behaviour. It also moves our focus away from Indian academics as it is today.

Is there a passion for science among kids?
Are they into non corporate research? science for the sake of science?
Are they even curious?
