New Delhi, Aug 21: Letter sent by HRD Minister Smriti Irani to CBSE teachers became talk of the town on Friday. The letter went viral on social media not because of any political reason but because it had spelling mistakes in it.
Smriti Irani had sent appreciation letters to the CBSE teachers congratulating them for good result in the exams.
After receiveing the letter, one of the teacher from Chhattisgarh responded with a "thanks" - and some advice.
Highlighting the errors in a Facebook post, Richa Kumar, a teacher of the Delhi Public School wrote:
"Thank you for congratulating me on the excellence I exemplify. However, having been a teacher for the last twenty years, your official letter head is an affront to my sensibilities as a Language teacher.
The attached photographs are self explanatory. Please ensure that at least the people who work for you, in your ministry, are well educated."
Later, the mistake was also pointed out by a Twitter user.
Smriti Irani replied to the same and said, "Would not misspell my own name in Hindi. Have asked concerned organisation to give an explanation."
@rai_saurabh100 no it's not Saurabh. Would not misspell my own name in Hindi. Have asked concerned organisation to give an explanation.— Smriti Z Irani (@smritiirani) August 21, 2015
The minister has now asked her ministry for an explanation.
