Kudos to NIHAR JANGA and JAIRAM HATHWAR. It was amazingly F-R-A-B-J-O-U-S (my limited vocabulary could think of no better word).

The recent annunciation of the winners of the prestigious Scripp’s National Spelling  Bee came as no surprise. The winner had to be a PIO(People of Indian Origin). PIOs simply rule this prestigious contest.
Some erstwhile statistics of these competition presenting Indians in a brighter light are-

*15 of the last 19 winners of this competition are South-Asians.
*PIOS have been winning this competition for the 9th time in a row.

This is despite the PIOs accounting only 1%, a small iota, of the total American  population.

So what actually is the reason behind this flabbergasting results  which have made the people all around the world dumb-founded?

English is the second language for the Indians. It has been proved beyond doubt that a person understands(and therefore uses) the second language better than he or she does the first language. People take special care to pronounce the words,  avoid usage error of certain words, keep the grammar in mind(etc.) of second the language making them even better at the language than the denizens.

Then the Indian expatriates are the people who are highly-educated, highly  positioned and have reached a much craved authority. They have a great  opulence of knowledge and transfer this trait to their young ones. These overambitious parents focus on their child’s learning as much as they do on their breathing!!

Furthermore typical Indian parents leave no stone unturned to instill the spirit of competition in their children. It’s DO OR DIE for them in whih Indians prefer DOING. ‘Rote’, ‘learn’,’study’, ‘first’ etc are some of many words that even an Indian  infant would be wont to.

As a result, the toilsome nature of the Indians is innate. Indian students are industrious, full of perseverance and give less priorities to other activities.

This attribute may be lamented by people elsewhere but India. However it is appreciated if it results in bringing laurels to our country(which it did).

So while the Americans are gross about this and are bemoaning the success of the PIOs over social – networking platforms, another Indian might be swotting hard for the next  Scripp’s National Spelling Bee contest.
