'If we keep bombarding our children with weapons of mass instruction, their overwhelmed brains will look for weapons of mass distraction. So excited about this book reaching as many parents and educators as possible, so that all of India is shaken away from the false belief that academic success in board examinations is the only path to life success. This book paves the way, for us all, to think about human potential, purpose and possibilities in new and exciting ways. It will shift the questions we ask our children from "What do you want to be when you grow up?" to "Who do you want to be when you grow up?" and "How would you like to contribute to the world?" to "What world problem do you want to solve?". The "old genius" scored as close to 100 per cent as possible in the board exams. This book is about the "new genius". Each of the children featured have found meaning and purpose and this book and the stories it tells will ignite inspiration in parents, teachers and society to reimagine what learning, creating, innovating and contributing is. This book will herald a change we want to see in the way we educate and parent our children'
