Exhausted! May be the right word for the students these days. Handling so much of pressure in their life isn’t easy, we all know. Be it studies or love or friendship – every phase is difficult because of growing competition among youth. Don’t the teachers realize that it weakens them emotionally and adds disappointment?
Today, we’ll share an incident with you which will distress you! Well, on Wednesday Samprit Banerjee, class 11th student, updated his Facebook status as “Goodbye” but none of his friends realized that he was actually bidding a goodbye to his life.
The very next day, he was found dead in his residence in Kolkata’s Paschim Putiary! Yes, he actually hanged himself. This was because his accounts teacher used to constantly humiliate him for his poor performance in half-yearly exams.
Even parents also blamed the account teacher.
Samprit’s mother said, “The accountancy teacher used to hit and make my son stand holding his ears in class. He is a teenager and it is a co-education school. He would find it very humiliating. He was so terrorized by the teacher’s punishment that he had stopped going to school on Wednesdays and Fridays because he had accountancy classes.”
Another classmate of Samprit stated that he was badly beaten when he asked the teacher why he got such less marks.
He even compared his marks with other students who scored high percentage in spite of writing the same answers. This made the teacher very furious and he immediately asked Samprit to get out of the class. This was sheer humiliation for him which he couldn’t handled.
This embarrassment was enough to compel him to take an extreme step, Samprit posted his last Goodbye on Facebook and ended his life!
It’s high time our education system realizes the pressure on students and take the necessary steps to avoid such circumstances further.
