Despite being feted as a huge success, the flagship programme of the government for the universalisation of primary education leaves much to be desired. Ironically, the easy availability of the funds for a supposedly successful scheme may be the preventing it from being as productive as it could otherwise be. Kalpana Misra reports.

P Sainath: What the heart does not feel ... 10.9.2006 India Together
