Sohan and his friends attend one of the MP government-run 924-odd 'headstart' schools imparting computer education in villages. Dirt-poor Dhar, where less than three of 10 people are literate and 74 per cent live below the poverty line, has 18 such schools. "The kids have taken to computers easily. They want these classes to go on and on," says Kureshy. Some walk barefoot up to 15 km for their share of interactive learning.

High school students are also beginning to savour the joys of e-education. Some 34 schools in Dhar are launching e-education over the next few months. That means equipping schools with computers carrying question banks and career guidance lessons through the Intranet. "This is value-added education," says Mulayam Singh Tomar, a maths teacher at the boys' high school in Sirajgarh.
