Education becoming creative is now an accepted trend. But a school in Bhiwandi has taken it to near-ludicrous levels by asking its Class IX students to name Virat Kohli’s girlfriend. The physical training (PT) has since gone viral, with experts and laymen alike wondering if children need such `education’.

Chacha Nehru Hindi High School, a private institute, listed the question in its objectivestyle PT question paper on October 13. It asked students to pick the Indian Test captain’s girlfriend from among three options: actresses Priyanka (Chopra), Anushka (Sharma) or Deepika (Padukone).

When the parent of a stu dent highlighted the question on social media, school principal A R Pandey tried to pass the buck, saying as they did not have a regular PT teacher, Hindi teacher Manoj Rai was tasked with setting the test paper, and had apparently made a mistake. Both Pandey and Rai have since apologised, but the issue continues to trend online.
