Holy cow – Why a Lesson for Jammu and Kashmir’s exam system?

Kashmir: In a bid to expose the faulty system, owner determined to take cow to write exams. One of the many candidates for next week’s polytechnic entrance exams in Jammu and Kashmir, one has made news already. Ms Kachir Gow might not be a prodigy, but she is unique. Kachir Gow is a brown cow. And her owner Abdul Rashid says come what may, he would take her to exam hall on May 10. Holy Cow! A ‘brown’ cow issued admit card for exam in Kashmir, authorities say they were pranked.

Srinagar: A cow, cocoa in reality, has got a concede card issued by powers on her name to compose an expert selection test in Srinagar and previous Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah is excited about seeing her show up in the paper.

In an unusual unforeseen development, the concede card for the selection test for Diploma in Polytechnic was issued by Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE) for the sake of Kachir Gaaw (Brown Cow) who is as far as anyone knows girl of Gura Dand (Red Bull).

“The J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examinations issued this roll-number slip to a cow after due verification. I have both the Provisional Confirmation Page for applicant Ms ‘Kachir Gaw’ as well as details of payment she made to BOPEE,” Mattu wrote on his account.

The Education minister Nayeem Akhtar said that “I am surprised and shocked by this. If this has indeed passed through the system… it has to be verified… It is a disturbing matter,” and ordered the officials to inquiry.

The opposition parties are having a field day. Former Chief Minister Omar Addullah tweeted that “Brilliant. I wish Kachir Gaaw had turned up for the examination.”

“It was not my intention to hurt anyone’s feeling or make a joke of someone. I filled this form only to check the system,” Bhat, who hails from Chadoora area of central Kashmir Budgam district, said.
