    This may be the reason for division among people.... I hail from that generation where we had no holidays in 1970-71... Today dc just decides what was best left to school head master... After covid we the people are more detached... Great were those days when some who had no umbrellas used to join(serunu)... At times many in so called Anjana kode... Unforgettable moments... Welcome rains folks... Never fear them... They too want out there....

    Based on an expert weather report.... the DCs declare holidays to school..... how exactly does this lead to division among people? what exactly are you even try to say? Moreover the DC's have access to daily weather reports, where as the school headmasters don't.

    What Shri Prakash has revealed is right Ramp ji.....I think some 20/25 years before rain was more than this......everyday students were drenching fully and sitting in the class from 8.30 to 4.30 till reach home may be 7 or so. Sometimes, headmistress was asking students to get extra pair of cloth. That too was getting drenched. Water bag/tiffin/loadful of bag.....keeping books in the plastic cover in the bag. Plastic also getting torned because of no. Of books. Who was giving holidays that time. 24 hours x 5/6 months continuous running nose. If fever comes then only doctor who was giving pink color syrup....thats it...Artificial floods were not occurring that time....drainges/thodus were cleaned up every quarterly. Now so many buildings are come up and blocked the drainages by extending the place and building walls around. Whatever holidays these children are getting now are compensated by keeping the classes on Saturdays or cutting down dasara holidays....

    But the sad part is that private school teachers have to go to school on these days and also work extra when these classes are to be compensated. No person in authority cares for their lives
