The top business newspaper Editor who had failed in three different ‘third languages’ by the time he was 12!

Editors are ever so eager to project themselves as repositories of knowledge, those who have never put a foot wrong in their academic lives, those who know it all.

What a relief to see T.N. Ninan, the well-regarded former Editor of The Economic Times and Business Standard, admit to some decidedly human frailties.

In his weekly column, this week on the new national education policy, Mr Ninan admits that as the son of a father with a transferable job, he failed in third different “third languages” by Class VI.

Mr Ninan even uses an exclamation mark to close the sentence.
