    The idea of teaching the entire year and deciding the fate of kids facing college within 3 hours is OK but might not augur well with those having to make amends. Rather than label them for life, this is a welcome move. However, the best data that caught my attention was..."A tota of 10,000 guest lecturers were appointed in two days." Is this practically possible? What was the total number of applicants and was it a machine inspired online screening? Did anyone talk to these candidates? Even they interview 24 hrs per day the average interview time for the selected 10000 guest lecturers is 17.28 seconds. At this rate 3 examinations would not suffice to give a fighting chance to the students. Yenchi whatis maraya?

    If this rule limited to 10, P.U (10&11th) is okay. Do not extend it to Professional courses such as Engineering, Medical, law etc... Another thing I oppose is distributing eggs. Do not think eggs only have proteins. Even thur dal, masoor dal or any lentils have proteins and give students these dal soup. Your motive of providing protiens is done, students get required proteins, expenditure is also is less and the farmers will also get benefitted.
