Description

A HINDU SCHOOL There is something strangely familiar, and, at the same time, peculiarly foreign and Oriental about the picture here presented. The states and blackboard, the eight-day clock, and, above all, the familiar proposition ot Euclid on the blackboard might all be borrowed, as indeed they are, from a London School. But the dark-skinned pupils, the teachers in their long white robes, the Oriental characters at the angles of the figure. all tell of a distant land, and of a strange acd ancient civilisation—a civilisation which had long existed when our British forefathers were running wild in the woods, and which had a complete philosophy before the Greek mathematician invented his problems to be a torment to the ingenuous youth of all races.
