This aspect struck me when I visited the social welfare schools in Karimnagar and Pulivendula recently. It was saddening to hear that students from these schools, who got qualified with good scores and joined the IIT institution from here, were very much embarrassed by their inability to communicate in English with the rest of the students who joined there, felt inferior and humiliated and quit their studies. After this shocking incident, it is heartening to note that the authorities have, of course, realized the importance of providing this essential support to all their students so as to make them confident participants wherever they go.
