Citizens of Tomorrow !





If frequent rapes, day light murder were not enough to label Delhi a crime capital and the state where the values of society are declining rapidly this incident of killing of a teacher by students will definitely do so. A student expelled for poor attendance by a Hindi teacher Mukesh Kumar (50) at the government school in Nangloi, Delhi had barged into the classroom to confront him during the exam around 5 pm. His friend, who was writing the exam, left his seat and joined him. The police say the boys "lost their temper" and attacked the teacher with a knife. They punched him, stabbed him repeatedly and then ran away, leaving him bleeding on the floor. He was admitted to hospital where he died due to his injuries.

Both class 12th students were arrested but they instilled a permanent fear in all teachers which have brought the beautiful bond of student-teacher under threat. We say that schools are temple of education which raises teachers to the position of god and see that's the treatment we gave to our gods. People are ready in our country to die or to kill for a god who is not visible but not even respect the person who imparts education and make us aware of the world around. There is hardly any respect for teacher's in today's students and those in board classes (10th & 12th) believes that there is no point in respecting teachers who will not check your exam papers. Such kids of class 12th becomes unmanageable and often threaten their teachers.

Our education system is responsible for all this fear among teachers and all the hatred for teachers in students. To score high marks is necessary instead of understanding what you are taught and if you are unable to do that you are a bad student. Really! Education decides you are good or bad? In current education system it is the duty of parents to teach their children to respect teachers and take their scolding/beating sportingly in a motivational way because they don't have any personal gain from success of students. Unnecessarily pressurizing the students interested in other things than study will only increase frustration and hatred for education and teachers. Some parents fought with teachers in front of their child in issues relating scolding by teachers or duties of parents. This encourage child to disrespect teacher because parents support them in all their wrongs. I used to hear from earlier generations that parents used to punish more if a student complained about teacher's scolding. This role has reversed now.

It is not right to hit students nowadays because they are sensitive than the previous generation but that doesn't mean they should be so touchy to feel humiliated if a teacher scold them in class and I think that's the duty of the parents. In the above case of teacher's murder we have many things to think like the temperament of students, no fear of police and law, role of parents, security of teachers in schools and the most importantly the value of bond of love and respect in student-teacher relationship. We all in our student life have hated some teachers but never thought of killing them for being harsh on us. An attitude of positivism should be there in the students to be better citizens of tomorrow.

    4. I understand that you didn't mean it. Anybody would tell that you have spent a lot of time crafting this nicely written post. If you take a break and have another fresh look, you would find why it appears biased on first reading. Nothing personal.

      Why are children becoming criminals is very difficult to answer, esp in a comment box. And let me clarify beforehand that I am not a psychologist, instead just a citizen who is equally concerned.

      The way I ask this question to myself is -- 'Have just the kids gone wrong, or has the whole society gone wrong'? You have compared your childhood with today's generation; but society itself has degraded too much since that time. And kids see, hear and read all these things all the time. Children are not aliens, neither have they descended from sky. They were born here, and are growing up here; so the impact of surroundings would definitely be reflected.

      A hundred thanks to you for highlighting this issue. It is alarming and very very disturbing. And we only have to responsibility and look for solutions. It is not an easy task, but the effort would have future implications for society. You could have a look at this short note

  5. There is a strong deficit of tolerance in our people.

  6. There are many things seriously wrong with today's educational and social system. Quite many students grow up as people with no idea about morals and principles.

    1. Matheikal Sir, perhaps the best we could do is to act as a role model and
      set up an example before children

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound.

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
