“We actually did not expect such a thing to come out… sometimes when you don’t suffer to acquire certain things the tendency is that you don’t value it until you begin to lose it. Maybe it is because of the way they had everything free throughout, there was no suffering on their part neither did their parents suffer so much as far as education is concerned,” he said.
