THE BEST TOURIST PLACE

The best tourist place in the world is the place where our father and mother are living.No other place can compensate is it.Blood is always thicker than water.When we live in the city we forget our parents.There may be many reasons for us to substantiate.There may be days that we forget our parents.But if you ask them how often they remember us,they will say that they remember us every moment.Our bondage is with our career. We give importance to the career-related tensions and issues.We forget our father and mother in the great ocean of day-to-day affairs.We are ready to spend lakhs and lakhs for tour the world.But,we neglect our parents who suffer in the great heat of 4 degrees.We dont care even to spend 50,000 rupees for the purchase of an AC for them.Where are we going?

Cyber Crimes and Students

 

India has become the country with the largest number of internet users and our school students are not apart. In this era of cyber crimes, students become the victims and sometimes, the perpetrators of the cyber crimes. When we are living in the knowledge-filled society, it becomes very difficult for a student to sort out the good from the bad. It is too difficult for them to differentiate good and bad. What is good for one student may not be good for another student. The clear-cut bifurcation of good and bad elements of the internet is humanly impossible too.

At this juncture, what should be a role of a teacher? Recently, I read an article and the name of the article was “Usage of Mobile Phones inside the class room.” When India is the largest user of cell phones, other countries try to use cell phones in class rooms and we are in the process of prohibiting cell phones. Whenever there is forceful restriction happening, the infringement into the rules will occur. If there is a policy of letting go, things will go smoothly. In the case of students also the same approach is better.

There were the days during which we were disallowed to watch televisions by our parents’. The parents of the yester years were of the view that the television would spoil the child. It is not television show or the channel which spoils the child. It is our attitude or attitude of the child that spoils the child. It is quite natural that a child who is in the adolescent age group will have a natural curiosity to know what is hidden behind. This inquisitiveness will not allow him/her to take rest. Till he/she grabs the information, he/she will be searching to find out the “truth”. Our prohibition or restriction will never be playing any role. If we are trying to block his / her natural inquisitiveness, we are leading ourselves in to a failure.

I am sure no child will be spoilt if he is brought up in a good family environment. If his / her father and mother are living as the best examples for him / her, he / she will be grown as the best citizens. In my point of view, there is no necessity to monitor him closely when he/she is browsing internet. If we do so, what we are creating is a kind of curiosity within him/her. This will lead him to search the sites which are created only for the purposes of enjoyment.

Cyber crimes are increasing in numbers in India. Though Information Technology Act (IT Act) has been introduced a decade back, the number of crimes registered has been found very less. The victims of the cyber crimes , mostly students are the categories of group who may be more prone to the level of victims than the adults. The checking point should be done by the teaching community and the parents. The teachers shall take the great effort of sensitising the students about the gravity of the situation. There has been reported by the media about the suicides because of “Cyber Bullying” and our legal enforcement system is handicapped in taking stringent penal action against the perpetrators of the crimes. The western countries have reported about the psychological harassment faced by the students from the unknown friends of the social media. In India, even though we have IT crime cell in each of the police station, the authorities are reluctant to file the First Information Report (FIR) against the cyber criminals.

A day should come on which our students should ready to pour their grievances in front of the teachers and parents regarding the negative results of the extensive use of the internet. The mental block between the parents and child should be vanished.

My school has adopted the following ways to check the cyber safety:

  1. Though our school has 24-hour internet facility with Wi-Fi Technology, we have instructed the teachers to be present in the Computer Lab, when the students are doing Google-assisted projects.
  2. Clear-cut instruction has been given to the parents to talk to their children freely and in a friendly manner.
  3. Knowledge-based, information-filled websites are listed and are given to the students.
  4. Some of the websites are blocked.
  5. Separate user ID and Password have been given and none can use the facility unknowingly.
  6. Proper check-point is there with the parents in the case of free-hand usage of Net pack in cell phones.
  7. We used to conduct brain storming sessions on the positive and negative aspects of internet.
  8. The Pamphlets explaining about cyber crimes and the victims are distributed to parents during their gatherings.
  9. Students are guided to approach the appropriate authority if they become the victims of “Cyber Bullying”.
  10. Power point presentations are done both for the parents and the students separately.

As a conclusion, let me point out the fact that the ultimate safety is not within the hands of the parents and not within the hands of the teachers , but within the mindsets of the students. For that, what we require is a consistent and continuous motivation to the students to speak out freely to their teachers and parents.

teachers are poor always

I don`t find any teacher who is rich.Of course they are rich knowledge-wise.But,the bank balance of every teacher is zero at the end of every month.He gets the blessings of Goddess Saraswathi,but does not get the same from Goddess Mahalakshmi

crackers – a foolishness

recent temple crackers tragedy………….

agprakash

I wonder why do the people are spending these much amount of money on crackers without thinking about the people who are suffering.A day should come that every festival should have a social responsibility and a percentage of the amount spent by by the rich on festivities should go to the poorer sections of the society.

Let us have a streamlined policy for the eradication of poverty and there should be a compulsory procedure to tax the people who are spending the large amount of money on the luxuries during the festivals. A festival shall be meaningfully celebrated if the consideration is given to the needy and the poor.

People are  worrying about themselves always.By worrying,nothing shall be changed.Sambhavami yuge yuge….

Then why should we worry…………..? We spoil our present by thinking about the future. Face everything as it comes.You cannot have a control on what is going to happen.Reduce your worries.Your worries will make others ,especially your near and dear ones worried.Worry is an epidemic.It will spread to your family members and friends.Only your enemies will be happy about your worries.Do you want to make your enemies happy and friends and family members unhappy ?
