When people think of India,
They think of the game of cricket.
If you're an Indian, knowing the rules of cricket is a criterion,
It's the rite of passage, the Indian ticket.
They say that cricketers don't play for the crowd, they play for the country.
Somewhere in the country is a small kid in a slum,
Praying for his mother to earn enough money to send him to school.
Somewhere in the world is a young girl with no income,
Hoping that college isn't as expensive as everyone says it is; which is the wish of a fool.
Education is a debt sentence to some people in the country.
On one side is a boy who pushes his parents to buy him stadium tickets,
On the other side is a boy who doesn't have textbooks to read.
Instead of spending money on "Ultra Edges" and shining wickets,
Why can't we invest that on education and kids' food and bread?
Doesn't an investment in knowledge pays the best interest?
