Dear all, Varalotti has written a story “ A violent Student” in W E dated July 1 st. This story is about a “ much less talked about” aspect of human behaviour and so makes very interesting reading. Our immediate reaction towards such behaviour is shock and disdain. Sridhar, you have smartly explained that it is a different behaviour and not abnormal ! I am now learning to look at people like Mallika with a softer outlook. It is not easy, though. Believe me, I was in the same boat as Malathy when my daughter was in one of the most prestigious schools of Chennai. Besides being young, I was too naïve to know that such behaviour did exist in reality. I really struggled as to how to help her out and finally sought the help of yet another teacher. She really helped me out of my “ idiyaappa chikkal” , safeguarding my daughter’s identity. Years back I did’nt even know that pshchological counselling existed in educational field. Sridhar, I can’t help admiring your writing prowess – you are reaching new heights with your indepth analysis of human psychology from hitherto unexplored angles. Very well written, dear Sridhar. Love & regards, Chithra. I suddenly realise that I am becoming your P R O ! This keeps me more busy than ask chitvish or culture thread ! I assure you, I fully enjoy this new portfolio !!
