I read this BBC article about an Indian village boy, Saurabh Singh topping the NASA ISD exam. ISD stands for International Scientist Discovery program. Impressive! Only two other Indians have cleared the exam. One was our President Abdul Kalam in 1960 (came in 7th) and other was Kalpana Chavla in 1988 (came in 21st).
It is talent like this and this that is being robbed by politicians who think people have given them a contract to rule.
