I was more angry than sad, so I wrote my opinion, but didn’t realize there could be another story to the Kuensel’s story. I have also come to believe what people say about our media to be true, that they are not credible. The news misinterpreted the teacher’s spank on the boy’s back as just a tap. I found out that the teacher spank the boy four times, the boy even tried to run but the teacher caught him and spanked him hard on the back. What the boy did was, he asked some doubts in a challenging manner. I also came to know that the teacher always picked on that particular student. The father did not enter the classroom but called the teacher out. The teacher got one lakh for his broken tooth, and he went to Kolkata to fix his tooth. The teacher is still teaching in the same school.
Talking with some of my colleagues, most say that the teacher got what he deserved, but also agree that the father could have made it less painful the teacher and more civil for himself .
I think the teacher should encourage his students to ask questions and doubts, and always find time to clarify them.
