    Now how in the world does a 8 year old became MS Certified? EHEHEHHEE.......

    Karachi: Following the foot steps of Arfa Karim, who became the world?s youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) at the age of nine in 2005, another talented Pakistani student Shafay Thubani has become a world?s youngest Microsoft Certified at the age of 8, report said on Wednesday.
    Shafay says earlier it was difficult for him but now he feels it quite easy.
    Arfa Karim rose to international fame when she became the youngest MCP at the age of nine in 2005 but died in February this year after complications resulting from an epileptic stroke.
    ?We were impressed from Arfa Karim but we never forced Shafay to this. He did what he wanted to do,? Geo TV quoted Shafay?s parents as saying.
    The Microsoft Certified award is a title given to those who master the company?s program and is often used by adults to further their careers in the tech field.

    Put yourself in the child's situation. It's exploitation at its best.

    People in India, Pakistan, China, and the Philippines seem to be good at rote memorization of western technologies, but those cultures don't seem to foster innovation and creativity enough for them to create anything new.

    I think India will end up as a huge player in the tech world, it already is in some ways, but the education system in these countries focuses too much on rote memorization and not creative problem solving, I hope that changes.

    Lets keep politics out of this thread and forum.
    This thread is about a very bright kid so lets just wish him the best in future rather than starting a political discussion which would eventually lead to bans.

    By the way in my perceptions, Education system has changed a lot. we are snatching their childhood by put burden like this. Think about our childhood, if we had to do such things in our past. where were our childishness. In the nutshell, I would like to say that we are not teaching them human values, we not making them human. we are making them machines who does have most of the informations in it's harddrive, that's called mind.
