announced shutdown while alleging harassment from a few parents Euro School in Wakad has followed suit by sending a letter to parents of its students hinting at such a possibility Like D Y Patil school Euro School too has been facing protests against fee hikes for the past few months On Thursday the school management sent a letter to all parents pointing out to media reports about the protests over fees and hinted at the possibility of a shutdown Share This Article Related Article The letter dated April 7 says that after a group of parents were asked to take a transfer certificate for their children by the school and seek admission elsewhere since they had refused to pay fees for several months some of them continued to send their children forcibly to school even after their names were struck off rolls When the school management made such children sit in library the letter says parents alleged their children were being held in detention Towards the end of the letter the school management talks about safety of children in the wake of protests by parents during which school staff had to allegedly face physical threats “We cannot at any point risk the safety of the children As Euro parents please be aware that if the school continues to be harassed in a deliberate manner by such parents the school staff and management may need to take drastic steps and may be left with no choice but to close down the school indefinitely” says the letter However Vikas Phadnis a trustee of EuroSchool Education Trust denied any knowledge of an impending shutdown of the school “We are nowhere close to a shutdown and do not intend to threaten any parents by this letter Why would I want to threaten other parents who are paying fees regularly and co-operating with school It just happens to be a co-incidence that another school announced a shutdown and we sent the letter at same time” he said Asked why the letter hinted at a shutdown Phadnis said it merely mentioned a possibility “We are trying to just indicate the eventual outcome of this harassment by those 10-12 parents We are merely saying if things like harassment of staff non-payment of fees continue it may lead to such a situation In two days the management will meet parents and clear any doubts or fears they may have” he said One of the parents requesting anonymity said “How can the school say it might close down What is the fault of parents like us who are paying fees” Another parent said that after reports of another city school shutting down over fight with parents regarding fees this letter had unnerved them “If one school can do it so can another So the message is clear Now we need to stop these parents or we will suffer” she said However the protesting parents say this is just a pressure

Indian Express App More Related NewsAs the country awaits anxiously for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at the Dussehra rally in Lucknow there a question on everybody’s mind: how would he approach the surgical strikes an issue that has left the country’s political parties divided Will he assuage ruffled feathers or will he make the divide deeper by taking a hard political stand We will have to wait for that till the evening If he is keen on cooling tempers he can opt for this speech Here we go: Brothers and sisters PM Narendra Modi PTI Today is Dussehra My best wishes to all of you We have gathered here to celebrate the victory of the good over the evil While the fate of evil calls for celebration I cannot stop reminding myself that it is back here year after year with all its crooked heads intact despite its crushing defeat it is handed out It revives itself maybe one head and two arms at a time while we are busy with our overlong rejoicing Perhaps we get too carried away by victory or equate a minor retreat of the enemy with total defeat Whatever it is the fact is we lose the sense of balance and get distracted allowing the enemy to recover That brings me to the topic of equanimity Our ancient texts would say it is a state of mind that is attained after one frees oneself from all worldly attachments physical and sentimental It is a condition of equipoise where all notions of pain and pleasure become irrelevant The person is neither ecstatic nor depressed over the success or failure of his actions; victory or defeat doesn’t drive him to extreme reactions But the state of equanimity does not mean a state of inaction The person has to do what he must and do it well As a country we have to do what we must But let’s not get overwhelmed by our own successes The surgical strikes against Pakistan-backed terrorists have left us is a state of excitement But we must remember it is only a small episode in a big continuous war We have defeated Pakistan four times but it has shown the ability to revive itself the way Ravana does with all his heads every year One big blow does not mean the end of evil We have to be alert on our toes all the time We don’t know where and how the enemy is going to strike next So we must guard against getting distracted in celebrations and wild chest-thumping A sense of equanimity is a must I notice with great concern that the country is getting divided over the military action Some political parties have started demanding proof while others have been busy painting all those asking for proof as anti-national This controversy is unwarranted I make it clear here that the credit for the surgical strikes goes entirely to the defence forces They have been hitting back at terrorists and Pakistan earlier too and they have done it again They are doing their job on the border with utmost dedication and bravery They belong to the country not to the government and certainly not to any political party Our gloating over their action and our criticism of them only shows we are insensitive to them We want to take unfair advantage of their sacrifice for the country Let’s stop it I promise no one from our side will get into politicising the action of defence forces I expect the opposition to put the matter to rest In the battle between good and evil the good always wins That is what we have been told all the time But no one ever told us what the win cost the good It is usually enormous There’s no such thing as zero-loss war So let’s get out of war-mongering and think with maturity It is better you let the government think in its own way I promise you we won’t disappoint We shall strike at the enemy in our own ways appropriately and with no mercy The evil has to be defeated When it’s victory finally it will be of the entire country not of any government or of any political party Wish you all well again Written by Express News Service | Published: April 2 2013 12:56 pm Related News Insomnia is

Muslim leaders In Uttar Pradesh the BJP won 312 seats including some of the Muslim-dominated seats such as Deoband Chandpur Moradabad Nagar Noorpur Naanpara and Nakur where analysts feel that Muslim

se" is somewhat an "abstract concept" "Contrary to general perception Muslims do not vote en masse for any party The BJP projects Muslims as a monolith to consolidate the Hindu votes The fact is Muslims vote just like normal voters on issues which concern them" Farooqui told IANS "It is simply not possible that all the Muslims in Uttar Pradesh vote for any one party Muslim votes do matter.
