Daughter narrated some hilarious and heartening stuff from her class debate. A boy speaking on “inspiring leaders” and first name he comes up with is Gandhi. A kid from the audience asks him, “what exactly were the qualities of a great leader that Gandhi had??”
Another: “you said great leaders are never partial but Gandhi favoured Nehru over Patel”. A third: “a leader looks after the welfare of his followers but when Gandhi signed the peace treaty that’s clearly not what he did”.
The boy, shaken, goes to his next “great leader” and unluckily for him it is Alexander the Great 😂
a kid from the audience asks him “Alexander was also known to be very cruel. So did people follow him out of fear, trust or not follow him at all!!” Poor guy went mute 😂😂
Kids these days are smart and not taking the bullshit that we were fed during our school days at face value any more, it gives me great hope for our future!!
By the end of it my daughter almost started to feel sorry for the guy. But only for a moment before she went up to personally greet all those who stood up to question our textbook history.
