Getting through to a good school in the Indian big cities is no joke. The reasons for this varies from one city to another.
Our main criterion for a good school is that it should be inclusive. School ranking etc. can be secondary as we don't even know what our daughter wants to become when she grows up. If she wants to study any form of performing arts in Berkley or The Julliard School, no elite Indian school can get her there unless she has the talent and we have the means to be a part of such schools!
For now, Anushka will go to either a regular (good) school, if she gets through; or, she starts at a pre-school.
