Hi all, I paid Rs. 4000 to poor students (who scored above 90% in X-std) of my school as their annual fee (4 students each 1000 Rs.). I started 300 Rs onwards and doing this last 8 years (after I got job in 2004). 2004 ; RS. 500 2005: Rs. 1000 2006: Rs. 1500 2007: Rs 1500 2008: Rs. 1500 2009: Rs. 2000 2010: Rs. 2500 2011: Rs. 3000 2012: Rs. 4000 These all for paying tuition fees to talented rural poor school students. This year i paid Rs 3500 for buying generator to manage power cut problems ( 12-16 hrs daily in tamilnadu) in the computer labs. I thought of not sharing this information. But my school teacher asked me to put in the social network also. He told me that your friends also will try to help to their school by seeing this post. Though it was a small help, I was felt very happy when that students called me for telling thanks. I believe the following quotes told by legends: 1. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” - Nelson Mandela 2. “Education: the path from cocky ignorance to miserable uncertainty.”- Mark Twai 3. “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”-W.B. Yeats 4. Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one."- Malcolm Forbes 5. Education is not the answer to the question. Education is the means to the answer to all questions." - William Allin 6. “Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” - Plato

Sexual Harassment against Women and girl children:

Sexual Harassment against Women and girl children: I have put my view for the probable reason for it and what to be done to stop it. 1. First point is cinema i.e the dialogues starts like that among friends in many movies. This time the party should have drinks with very young girls dance like that. After hearing this dialogue, a common man getting disturbed. 2. Second is now a day people have more awareness about HIV/AIDS. That is why they are afraid to go to such a women or prostitute standing in the streets or licensed areas. So they are trying to do crime near to one who is in same village or in the city. 3. Third point alcohol drinking or drunken people roaming in the public. 4. Fourth point is we must agree that dressing sense of the women after seeing the cinemas (especially in the last fifteen years cinema shows sexiness in the dress code). Because of this, I think the respect for women has come down in the society among men and boys. “Dress is made to cover our body not to expose” Some 25 years before such a violence against women was not there. Because cinemas also had a limits. Now television providing enough details without censor. And also easy to access sex violence through internet. What to be done: To avoid or reduce such a crime either we have to censor television or control the cinema dialogues or editing the details in the internet. But it is very difficult to do the above things. 1. Hence the solution is, the view of the society has to be changed or we have to teach the children to respect women in their child age itself other than study in the house or school syllabus. 2. Every man must remember frequently that their mother also is a woman and they might have sisters and daughters. 3. Then we have to stop by showing the cinema or advertisement that woman means only for sex or attractiveness. 4. TV channels and Newspaper has to broadcast or publish the programmes which is givng importance to emotional feelings of woman and also must show the other difficulties of the woman other than sex like pain while delivery or period time or maturity time or menopause time etc. They are facing naturally many problems in addition to the sex crimes. 5. This type of programme gives the man to understand the sentimental or emotional feeling of the woman or girl children. This all for long term idea to stop the crime over a woman Obviously, Severe punishments through laws for sexual harassment will give fear among people. It will reduce the crime at some level. Because After delhi girl shame, some more than 20 rapes happened in india within the 10 days’ time. It is due to not having severe law in india. At the same time, the laws should not be misused to punish innocent man also .
