Great writing Sankarshan,
I hope there are teachers also on the list and they are reading your reply.
Only if and when the teachers attitude change, things will change.
(Students are already changing for good. They have to go in the

Changing the academic system takes a very long time. By that time, the
industry has gone too far.
