I was standing outside the house this evening, when my nephew Arvind (the dude with the glasses) and his two pals came cycling back from scholl. They stopped to say a brief Hi...
They appeared quite surprised when I asked them if they were returning from some Hike organised by the school. I was aghast when they told me that they carried the same kinda luggage to school everyday and that they dont have a desk/locker where they can leave their books behind. Can you see the size of the backpack/school bag each guy is carrying ?
I went to a school where we were given individual desks with a flip-open cabinet where we could leave behind text books that we didn't need for home-work or revision that evening. Of course we ended up carrying something like 5-6 books, but that's what we needed for that evening. Heck, why carry the whole years' books everyday to and fro school is something that beats me...
Assuming the option of providing individual storage to students may not be possible by all schools for comercial reaons, they could still put up common pigeon-hole design racks with locks.
Last night as I lay sleeping
I died or so it seemed,
Then I went to heaven
But only in my dream.
Up there St Peter met me
Standing at the pearly gates,
He said "I must check your record
Please stand here and wait".
He turned and said "Your record
Is covered with terrible flaws,
On earth I see you rallied
For every losing cause.
I see that you drank alcohol
And smoked and used drugs too,
Fact is, you've done everything
A good person should never do.
We can't have people like you up here
Your life was full of sin".
Then he read the last of my record
Took my hand and said "Come in".
He led me up to the big boss and said "Take him in and treat him well,
He used to work in a call centre He's done his time in hell".
