The Chennai School Horror

Ghastly incidents have occurred in the past but this one seems to have an icing on the cake. It was shocking to hear an incident where a student allegedly stabbed a teacher to death. The Hindi Teacher apparently was reported to have been rude to the boy earlier and would constantly send written complaints to his parents. Frustration and anger manifested itself into this ugly episode of murder and juvenile delinquency.

It makes one wonder where today's youth is headed to? The alarming rate of increased aggression is a case of concern for Parents, teachers and counsellors across the country. Children are pressurized from a young age to perform their best. Any deviation from the set standards leads to severe reprimand and abuses. Some teachers tend to be abusive towards the children who after a point are unable to withstand the scolding. Pent up anger towards their professors ultimately results in the ugly demon raising its head.

A different approach towards students could possibly help in reducing such crimes. More understanding, less pressure, restrain from abusing and a holistic approach towards education will benefit the students. Its high time the nation wakes up to such instances and brainstorm towards a better future which lies in these students hands'.
