4 Reasons why there are few Navodayans in IITs

The education level in Navodaya schools is good as compared to many private and government schools. Students mostly from rural areas are given free education from 6th to 12th class. But to crack exams like IIT-JEE you really need to be very hardworking and creative. Sometimes talent works, and yet many times patience and hard work are required to solve tough JEE problems. Sure, you hear the news about Navodaya students getting into IITs but those are students who took coaching from different centres after leaving navodaya in 11th. The % of students getting in IITs directly from navodayas is still less. These are the major factors which I think is the reason why Navodayan students are few in numbers in IITs. 1. Sources To study for competitive exams, we need sources like books, magazines, internet through which we gain knowledge. Navodaya provides NCERT books which are not sufficient. Students don’t have the necessary books required for these exams. Without these books how on

What was the Oath of Vayuputras?

Have you read Oath of the Vayuputras? No? Then please don't read this article. There is a spoiler. And I want you to enjoy your third book.    Yes? okay. Continue. But do you know what was the oath of the Vayuputras? I think you don't. Me neither when I first completed that book. And I never actually thought about it. I mean, when you complete Amish's book you have so much else to wonder about rather than the title. First, I was very sad when I knew about Sati's death. Her death saddened me so much. She was my favourite character throughout the series. Then the end was also not something I would have imagined and it came as a shock. Or maybe I watch too many Disney movies that I am habitual to happy endings.  Oath of Vayuputras  “We will always remain faithful to your command, Lord Rudra, this is the blood oath of a Vayuputra”. This is what  Manobhu  - Vayuputra Lord , one of the Amartya Shpand, a member of the council of six wise men and women who ru

Samichi - Sita Warrior of Mithila ( Ram Chandra Series #2)

What is the relationship between  Khara and Samichi is one of the questions that pops up in your mind if you completed reading Sita - Warrior of Mithila.     I have tried to answer this question to the best of my knowledge from Amish's books as well as our Hindu mythology textures. Please read it carefully and if you have any questions, feel free to write them in the comment box. KHARA In   Sita - Warrior of Mithila , there is not much of the description of Khara. The book is about the life of  Devi Sita and it unfolds the events starting from her birth to how she got kidnapped by Raavan’s soldiers.   Mostly, we know about Khara from the initial chapters of the second book - Sita. He tortured Jatayu so that Sita would reveal herself as she was hiding behind the trees and observing all this. It was because of him, that Sita had to come out to protect his brother -Jatayuji. She did come. But Khara was very cruel. He killed Jatayu. This infuriated Sita and she sho
