A sign of increasing violence in schools?

Chennai teacher’s murder: A sign of increasing violence in schools?

A Class 9 student Thursday stabbed to death a teacher in his school here for complaining to his parents about his poor academic performanace.

Mohammed Irfan of St. Mary's Anglo-Indian School killed Uma Maheswari, who taught Hindi and Science, in the classroom.
Maheswari, a mother of two, raised an alarm when Irfan started stabbing her but before others could come to her rescue she bled to death. She was rushed to the Government General Hospital where doctors declared her dead.
The school officials caught Irfan, who hid in a toilet room, and handed him over to the police. Parents of other students rushed to the school to take home their wards.
A visibly shocked Father A. Bosco, school administrator, told reporters that the boy had come prepared to attack the teacher with a knife in his bag.
Police said Irfan was upset with Maheswari for complaining about him to his parents and killed her as revenge.
The school administration has declared holiday for four days.
"It is shocking, but it was expected to happen given the attitude of the parents and the media towards school teachers," K.B. Sreevidya, education officer, Srimathi Sundaravalli Memorial School, told IANS.
"When we were in school our parents respected the teachers and did not get angry when our mistakes were pointed out and corrective actions were suggested. Caning of students was prevalent then and no parent complained against the teachers," she added.
She said in contrast, teacher are nowadays hauled up in police stations for punishing the students and the media highlights the incidents, which emboldens the students further.
Sreevidya added that the absence of moral instruction periods in school nowadays is also a factor for the indiscipline among students.
According to her, disturbed students will avoid eye contact with teachers, and act very obediently, whereas an entirely opposite picture will be presented towards school/class mates.

Chennai Traffic Police/ Spot Fine System

On Jan 30th 2012, the Chennai City Traffic Police (CCTP) took the first in a series of proposed steps that aim to tackle bad road behaviour and unsafe driving. While the increase in ‘spot fine' rates has received wide attention, what is more significant is that repeat offenders would henceforth be targeted more stringently.

For certain offences, the fine could be three to four times more. Since the 200-odd e-challan devices deployed by CCTP would have to stay connected to an online database all through the day in order to identify repeat offenders, the discretionary powers of police personnel would be greatly reduced. From now, all offences would have a digital footprint and they can be tracked.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Sanjay Arora said that it would take a few months for the move to start showing results. “Fine collection would definitely increase manifold.”

Increasing the penalty for bad road behaviour does have its benefits. Hyderabad did it in August last year and the number of road accidents dropped by 30-40 per cent in the last quarter of 2011.

Charu 's Exile - Review & Discussion

27th India International Leather Fair

ITPO has been organising India International Leather Fair in Chennai for the last 26 years with great success. The brand IILF is very well established and recognized by the trade & industry not only in India but in overseas market also. A large number of companies are participating in the show regularly. The foot fall of overseas trade visitors was very encouraging for the last edition of IILF, held in Chennai. On the request of industry and the space constraint at Chennai, it has been decided by the ITPO to make the event bi-annual.
