School is a place where we are expected to learn all disciplines of life. The value of education has raised to a whole new standard. Picnics and functions are very common part of every school. We expect our children to learn some good knowledge and come back to home. But a shameful act took place in Tamakuru District of Karnataka.
Students from 8th, 9th and 10th class of Kotagere Taluk Government school have been taken to a field trip to Dharmashala, along with some teachers. When a student was asked for water, the teachers passed them a bottle which has alcohol in it. This is completely an ill-mannered act, which show that there is no concern towards the students and their health and hygiene.
Police have arrested two teachers Muzammil and Rathore along with the school headmaster Sachidanand for giving liquor to the students. While returning from the trip, the bus was stopped at Hassan for some dinner. The teachers were seemed to be drunken and passed the bottle with alcohol to the students when asked for water.
One of the students who described the incident said,
“Our headmaster Sachidanand was fully drunk. We requested Rathore and Muzzamil sir to give us some water from their bottle. They gave us the water bottle but didn’t tell us they have mixed alcohol with water. We drank the water and after some time students started feeling dizzy and few students vomited”.
Parents filed a complaint to management committee, after knowing the incident from their children. A few students were fallen ill and a student had numerous vomiting since then. He said
“I vomited several times. I don’t remember how I reached home,” said one student. His father, along with other parents, who complained to the SDMC said his son returned home in a terrible state.”
May be this is why we are still a developing nation, we are not concerned, we are careless, we aren’t scared of any law. But not with children, they are the future of India. Hoping for a Better Nation.
