Let's take a walk down the memory lane and remember those different types of charts we would go buy for school. They were usually something like 'types of fruits' or 'types of flowers' but there were some particular charts that had directions to become the ideal child. We all remember the 'adarsh balak' and now even Stephen Fry does.
The English comedian, actor, and writer stumbled upon a framed 'adarsh balak' chart at his doctor's office and was so confused by it that he decided to share it with his 12.7 million followers.
Decidedly odd of my doctor to hang this in his surgery. I've tried to live up to it though. Haven't managed to "Pray Almighty" or "Join NCC", otherwise I'm getting there. pic.twitter.com/Dl52jaqang— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) January 19, 2019
When a 61-year-old man is just about getting close to becoming the ideal child, then why was so much pressure put on us when we were kids?
He was so fascinated by this chart, he went ahead and found more of them when someone asked.
I'm afraid to say that the closest I could find was this ... make of it what you will pic.twitter.com/m5Yc6uvg1T— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) January 19, 2019
This obviously sparked the interest of desi Twitter and so many people shared a lot of other charts in the comments. Something that's related to India and desi Twitter isn't all over it? Impossible!

God bless whoever made this version, it's hilarious.
This is really great because there's a whole series of satire comics based on this supposed Adarsh Balak ie An Ideal Child. Here's a few I guess pic.twitter.com/SAyGurzT6B— Bot (@yass_yash) January 19, 2019
The best thing anyone will ever see.

is your doctor Indian, by any chance? This what they put up in class when I was a school and we had to buy it at stationery shops to cut out and stick in scrap books for "moral science"— Alyssa G. Lobo (@filmibaby) January 19, 2019
