Malappuram:  In a glaring error, the social sciences textbook for standard ten in the state syllabus, English medium stream, has marked  Kavaratti in Lakshadweep as an island in Andaman and Nicobar.

The error was identified by Gopika, a student from the Mangada High School. On the 124th page of the second part of the social sciences book, the satellite image of the island of Kavaratti was marked as an island in the Andaman and Nicobar islands.

The student could identify the error due to her familiarity with the Lakshdweep island community as her father Mr. Gopal Mangada, the head of the Government BEd. centre at Malappuram, had worked for long years in the island.
