'Killing Childhood': Viral Photo Shows Hyderabad School Released List of 'Nursery Toppers'
According to viral photos on the internet, a school in Hyderabad, Priya Bharati High School has put up a banner of toppers in nursery, UKG and LKG.

For most of us, school meant meeting your closest friends every day, a whole lot of fun and figuring out ways to evade homework as far as possible. But things have changed now - schools, parents and consequently children are becoming more and more competitive. There's a constant pressure on the young ones to prove themselves, to outdo their classmates.

But as an advertisement by a school in Hyderabad shows, even toddlers and pre-schoolers will not be pardoned. Children as young as age three and four are being pushed into the rat race when they should be playing outside, watching cartoons and just taking it easy till real life kicks in.

According to viral photos on the internet, a school in Hyderabad, Priya Bharati High School has put up a banner of toppers in nursery, UKG and LKG.

The list features photos of kids who managed to top their class. But, erm, in what?

The tweet has enraged netizens who feel that toddlers should not be pitted against each other or forced to compete against each other, especially at such impressionable ages. This is what they had to say:

As one person wrote, this picture symbolises everything that is messed up about the education system in India. These kids are way too young to be burdened with the pressure of living up their parents' expectations. Can we just leave them alone and let them be what they're meant to be - children?
