Education has been a problem in our country and the lack of it has been blamed for all sorts of evil for hundreds of years. Even Rabindranath Tagore wrote lengthy articles about how the Indian education system needs to change. These days teachers are teaching the students from the guides instead of textbooks keeping only getting marks is the main aim. The education minister of Uttarakhand Arvind Pandey's arithmetic theory at a government school recently turned the Mathematics and Chemistry upside down.

This minister paid a surprise visit to Dehradun's Mahila Inter College and asked “basic” questions of mathematics. As he is in the visit to inspect the quality of education in government-run schools, he thought of asking a question or two of the teacher.

He asked the teacher what would be the answer for “minus plus-minus.”, that is (-) + (-) =? in Chemistry and as expected the teacher got it right. He then proceeded to ask her what would be the answer to the same question in Mathematics, but ironically he himself deified the logic and ruled “minus plus minus is plus”. The video is going viral on the internet.

He wanted to know how much would two negative signs add up to. "Minus plus minus is plus," he told the bewildered teacher. Next, he asked her how much would minus one and minus one (-1) + (-1) add up to. The correct answer is -2. The education minister declared, in front of a video camera that had accompanied him on the inspection, that the answer is zero and stood his ground.

The minister, who had defended himself on and blamed the teacher for using a guidebook and not the prescribed textbook, went into damage-control mode the next day. On his Facebook page, the minister put out a video of another school inspection. In this one, the minister who had been criticised for being brusque with the teacher on Monday, appeared to be at his best behaviour.

Also, before leaving the classroom, he warned the teacher, "I am sparing you because you are a woman".
