Virat’s girlfriend— Priyanka or Deepika, a school asked

To everyone’s surprise, a Maharashtra school has justified the meaning of ‘nonsense’ and ‘bizarre’ by asking an absurd question about Virat Kohli.


For their Physical Training or PT exam, class nine students of Chacha Nehru Hindi High School in Bhiwandi asked students to name Virat Kohli’s girlfriend. 


Multiple options were also given to the students namely, Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone. 


This is not the first time; a question paper has proved to be an epitome of senselessness absurdity. Earlier this year, a civil engineering exam question paper featured a question on Tamil blockbuster Baahubali. Students at Vellore Institute of Technology were asked to design engineering set-pieces for the film's war sequences.


Yes some of us worship bollywood celebrities and cricketers, yet they are not a subject of study.
