When it comes to uniqness in education,ICSE has always made the headlines.And they have done it yet again.

According to recent media reports,ICSE has announced it’s newly reformed syllabus which will pe replacing old shakespearean content with modern and much popular names like Harry Potter, Tintin, Noddy.
