I read a blog in Information Week - Indian Schools Ditch Microsoft For Linux, Kill Golden Goose. Its about Kerala's decision to teach Linux in schools instead of Microsoft. I was astonished to the extent people read this simple decision made in a school district in Kerala. I mean its like any decision made in any school district in the US. The article and people who has commented it reflects not only their ignorance about other countries and cultures but also their arrogance (in some). The blog and the comments, reminded me of a line in the movie "The Last of the Mohicans" - "...do not try to make them understand you and do not try to understand them. That is because they are a breed apart and they make no sense...".
The proverb - "The fish would have not gotten into trouble if it has simply shut its mouth" - proves to be true for the author of the blog.
