Divaswapna by Gijubhai Badheka

Divaswapna (Daydreaming) by Gijubhai Badheka, is an Indian classic on education. Bereft of educational jargon, it is an inspiring tale of a school teacher who, despite severe odds, tries to make learning fun. It tells what one teacher was able to do when given a chance and a little help. Even in the 1920's, Gijubhai was able to sense the futility of stupid textbook. A must read.
