Abstract: Over the last decade there has been an increasingly vocal demand in many countries that Computational Thinking (CT) be a part of the school curriculum. In India, the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020) has not only given importance to CT, but has also coupled it with mathematical thinking. While this has generated quite a buzz in the country, it is quite unclear whether there is a clear perception among the community of educators and teachers what CT is about, why it is being coupled with mathematical thinking at all, and whether promoting CT in schools is necessary or even desirable. There is a real danger that to the broad community of schools and educators this buzz reduces only to the promotion of coding during school years.
