    The Indian Education System

    Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes made of ticky tacky, Little boxes on the hillside, Little boxes all the same. There’s a green one and a pink one And a blue one and a yellow one. God made them all differently, They looked anything but the same. Then the students in the houses All go to the university Where they are put in boxes And they come out all the same. And there’s doctors and lawyers And business executives God made them all differently, Now they all look just the same.
