School - A temple of knowledge? I wrote this on my blog on the 1st of July and to my horror, i am here writing again on this topic with my heart in terror.
Where are our children safe?
I am ashamed to know that I am a part of a country that swears freedom from 73 years.
However here; where children are abused and not only raped but murdered as well in the temples of knowledge. And the victims are only worth a few candles?
My heart feels a terrible ache when I see cases that happen on a weekly basis from the different parts of our country. I feel sick in my bones where children are dying and being hurt and yet the social fundamentalists are snoozing over it.
Taxation like GST getting prime focus instead of looking for safety the government is busy in looting the common man. And yet after being good citizens, paying more than half that we earn. the citizens have no vocals for the our future generations.
Paying school fees that are now in the lakh equivalent digits. There is zero safety in the people that are the caretakers of the temple of knowledge.
How many Pradyuman Thakur will need to die before our system works on it's ethics?
How are we gonna survive this gigantic hole that is punched into the chest of those mothers whose children are never going to understand why we couldn't protect them?
How many fake answers will be given to those fathers who give in their blood and sweat to know that they failed in saving the life of their beloved children?
Will we ever find any valid reasons to the loss of these fates?
I pledge for parents to come in as a single community, pre schools, primary or secondary.
Rich or Poor! Big or Small!
Our children need to be protected NOW!
CCTV is not the answer!
Regular checking is not the answer!
We cannot allow to jeopardize the safety of our children.
We the parents, mothers and fathers have to work as a team.
We all need to take turns and be in the classroom, make amends to be one parent for a class to at the least keeping an eye. Being around them for the shortest fraction of time.
To avoid all that is happening we have to take the matters in our own hands, before it's too late to save your and my child....
