draw a comparison between khushwant singh's village school education and city school education.

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Khushwant Singh's village school was attached to the temple. The priest taught the students the alphabet and the morning prayer. While the children sat in rows on either side of the verandah singing the alphabet or the prayer in a chorus, his grandmother sat inside reading the scriptures. When they had both finished, they would walk back together. The village dogs would meet them at the temple door. They followed the narrator and his grandmother to their home growling and fighting with each other for the chapattis they threw to the dogs. In contrast when the narrator joined the city school, it was a turning-point in his friendship with his grandmother. Although they shared the same room, his grandmother no longer came to school with him. He used to go to an English school in a motor bus. There were no dogs in the streets and she took to feeding sparrows in the courtyard of their city house. Sometimes she would ask him what the teacher had â€‹taught him. He would tell her English words and little things of western science and learning, the law of gravity, Archimedes’ Principle, the world being round, etc. This made her unhappy. She could not help him with his lessons. She did not believe in the things they taught at the English school and was distressed that there was no teaching about God and the scriptures. One day he announced that they were being given music lessons. She was very disturbed. To her music had lewd associations. It was the monopoly of harlots and beggars and not meant for gentlefolk. She said nothing but her silence meant disapproval. She rarely talked to the narrator after that.
