    TMA, you won't be able to become a good parent at all. Kids are born to do such things and they learn from them. However, the school management should have removed it to protect the students from such a disaster.

    So the maintenance guy has to look each and every corner of the school in the future. And also this school in the Mellwagedara area might not be having maintenance guys at all.

    It is not good to kill any insects 'panathi patha' but these children are paying a big price for a small naughty act.

    This is not surprised. The snake also will bite the students because the teachers are the main snakes
