Most people around the world following Indian politics would be aware about the Sri Krishna commision report.
Well, the report was released on Jan 6th. As anticipated there was unrest in some parts of our state. Some political parties called for closure of schools and colleges since they were not happy with the outcome of the report.
Some schools like my children's school did not take the bandh call seriously and so they went to work.
Just an hour into their work and their school gate was rattled with some anti-social elements wearing the party colors of a political party. They carried acid bottles with them and threatened the school authorities. The school authorities immediately huddled all the children into their classrooms and promised the party workers that the school would be closed.
Immediately all the children were put on the school buses, as they were boarding the buses my son said he and his friends were told to shout slogans in support of the party.
Even as I was reading the sms from school stating that the school was closed due to political trouble and the buses will leave school at 10.am, my daughter reached home by the high school bus and told me ' amma, all the primary school children are shouting slogans, their buses will come soon' and a few minutes later my son got down from the bus and came running to me and said ' Amma, I and my friends shouted "JAI ---------- " today.
