While speaking about her school days, she shared details about her favourite subjects and the one she hated as a kid. “I only really cared about history and literature, which I did really well in,” she said. And, then she was asked about the worst subject that she couldn’t stand, she blurted out “Maths”.
She added, “I don’t understand the point. Calculator invent hone ke baad aaj tak maine Algebra ka istemaal kiya hi nahi hai toh itna kyun maine sar toda? (I never used algebra till date since the invention of calculators, so why did I try so hard). Like… what was the point?”
She further added, “History and literature, on the other hand… it makes you a cultured human. Maths just makes you like retarded.” People over social media didn’t take much time to point out the problematic statement. Many netizens took to social media to share their disappointment with such a shocking and bizzare statement.
While reacting to the video, a netizen mentioned, “Yeh Hamaare Young Generation Ke Idol Hai”. Another said, “Instagram University Graduate.”Here is what the people on internet had to say about Jhanvi Kapoor’s statement:
#JhanviKapoor is trying to do algebra by using calculator. And that’s end the all logic.
Jahnvi Kapoor, who completed her studies from Dhirubhai Ambani International School, also shared how her school attendance was short because she had to travel with her parents Sridevi and Boney Kapoor. And, that’s the reason why some teachers were hard on her. But, some like her “based on her merit, and not for who she was”.
