Karkala, Dec 7, 2013: Jammu Kashmir is in the Northern most tip of India and Kanyakumari in the Southern most tip. There can be no doubt in this regard. But, a map of India made of bricks which one can see just outside the Headmaster’s chamber at the Muniyalu Primary School seems to be misdirecting the students.
Here, the map is drawn in such a way that Jammu Kashmir is in the Southern direction of the school and Kanyakumari in the Northern direction. Many parents point out that any teacher who teachers the students standing in front of this map would certainly land the students in confusion as far as the directions are concerned.
In reality, the school ought to have prepared this map in accordance to the geographical directions so that students are guided in the right direction.
