शिक्षा बचाओ -- Shiksha Bachao

"The child is taken to school, and the first thing he learns is that his father is a fool, the second thing that his grandfather is a lunatic, the third thing that all his teachers are hypocrites, the fourth that all the sacred books are lies. By the time he is 16, he is a mass of negation -- lifeless and boneless." -- Swami Vivekananda

NCERT quotes Sanskrit Drama

On page 118 of the book on history for class VI, NCERT quotes from a drama by Kalidas. And then the child is asked "Do you think that is a poor man finds something and reports this to the police he would be treated like this today?" Yes my child, all your great grandfathers were not only lunatic, they were corrupt too!

What is the logic of quoting from a drama! Do the British historians quote from the "Arms and the Man" by Bernard Shaw to prove that all british armymen are flukes and cowards.
