This Ruby, a teacher, can’t write ‘Namaskar’ in Hindi correctly
Patna, (DHNS): If an Uttar Pradesh school teacher can say that IMF stands for “International Money Found”, then Bihar teachers are not lagging behind in terms of “merit”.
A primary school teacher in Bihar’s Buxar district could not even write “namaskar” in Hindi properly when she was asked to do so.
The matter came to fore when the District Magistrate (DM) Raman Kumar decided to carry out a surprise inspection of a primary school in his area. When the DM reached the school in Masarhia, he found the teacher concerned Rekha Kumari absent. The other teacher on the school campus Ruby Kumari was summoned. She was asked to write “Namaskar” in Hindi on the black board. She failed to write it correctly. With much difficulty she wrote “Nasmakar”.
To be fair to her, the DM gave her another chance and asked her to write “Aashirwad” (blessings) in Hindi on the board. She could not write even “Aashirwad” correctly.
This infuriated the DM who publicly snubbed the teacher: “How do you people teach the children here? Is this the way new generation of student is being readied?”
The DM later interacted with the students who informed him that the school teacher Rekha Kumari visited school only twice a month. When the students’ register was verified, it was found that out of 43 students enrolled, only 16 came to school.
The rota in Bihar’s education system recently came to fore and made national headlines a month back when Intermediate Arts “topper” Ruby Rai pronounced political science as “prodigal science” and added that “cooking” was taught in that subject. She could not even answer how much marks she scored in the intermediate exams. Having failed in the re-test, Ruby Rai is at present cooling her heels in Patna’s Beur Jail.
