obsession with numbers

One of the things I have learnt in my life is that being good in maths can be useless. Many Indians send their kids to maths tuition. IMHO maths tuition is the waste of all wastes in the entire world. Let me explain why. There are four types of people. a) those who love  maths. These people do not need tuition. b) those who are good at maths but not necessarily obsessive with it. They do not need maths tuition either. With the help of tuition they can make it look like as if they are as geniuses as those who are obsessive with maths. but they can never really be obsessive with maths and so it is really useless to do all those maths tuition classes. c) those who do not mind and can cope with maths. These people do not need maths tuition either. With the help of tuition they can make it look like category a or b but they will never be category a or b, and hence it is useless to do maths tuition again. d) those who do not do maths. They don’t need maths tuition either. those who do not do maths will never do maths and tuition classes are waste again.

So, If Avni has my maths genes she will not need maths tuition or if she has Balan’s genes she will not need maths tuition either. me not saying who is which category 😉 🙂  Anyway, the kids are not going to do maths tuition. That is my first and foremost decision about how their eduction and related stuff are going to go. Avni is obsessed with numbers these days. Hope it is just a phase. She can recognise up to 9 (number 10 is number 1 for her. I thought fair enough) and can say upto 20.

    If I did not have math tuition I would have failed my board exams!
