Damn. What kind of world is out there?
I was just watching the news today when i saw this news about a teacher in India burning the hand of his students to see if any of them had stolen his money. the students, well, they were at most 10-12 years. they were showing their little hands where there were horrific marks due to burns of candle. the kids were said to be scared to go back to the school. i think that they said the the teacher was expelled or something. i don't think that the psychological disturbances that the kids go through will be eliminated by whatever punishment they give to that teacher.
its sick. just sick
we talk about modernization..stepping into modern age and stuffs like that when a sick incident like this comes up. there are still people here who force people to eat human excreta just due to the superstitions. obviously education is the key to eliminating ignorance, but when a teacher ends up with acts like these, how can we expect the students turn out to be well?
these violations against human rights and humanity are not just a problem of developing countries, but worldwide.
