Whatever is asked, answered and subsequently commented upon is
pitiable. Asking such a basic question by student tells about his
unpreparedness or level of understanding. but still he must be a MSc
or PhD student. If he is so unprepared how is he a student of this
level- The fault lies with the education system and we are part of it.
The student has only dared to ask a question using this e-facility so
that his job is simplified. We are not in bussiness but in a
profession. If one does not likes a question he should not respond in
a foolish manner by telling his own standard. Try to contribute for
bringingout good students- otherwise it will kill science and
scientists as well.

Agree. The education system in india is not up to international standard.
Disagree. Science is not all pure research but also practical. Intellectual
property gained from research spin off many new businesses that allow
research to continue. We can't always rely on the government for research
Disagree. Encouraging students to post silly questions and expecting the
public to hand-feed them is in my opinion foolish.
why such anger against India?? how do u know the student is in India and how
do u know Dr.Gupta is talking only about India. You have no clue what you
are talking about, "The education system in India is not up to international

contrary to good scientific practices and temper, you are quick to
