Wouldn’t let a child stand straight,
Deformed spine is a change of state!

Comment Thank you so much, Rupradhaji and Padmaja for your kind words.

Along with the present education system, I was looking at the word "Spine" in much broader sense. In the changing socio-economic condition didn't our learning form humans with spines, which are often not straight? So the backpack is not loaded with books alone but much more........ -
