Education and AIDS

Atanu makes an interesting point on how India has formed the vicious circle out of which it has dim chances of coming out:

The government has done the most damage to India through its stranglehold on education. By destroying the education system, it has destroyed the capacity among the people to perceive the problem in the first place. It is like the human immunodeficiency virus which causes AIDS: HIV acts by attacking the immune system itself. Similarly, hitting the education system destroys the capacity among the people to ever understand what ails the education system and why.
