    Only 5000/-, what about principals taking more than 100,000/- from the popular National Schools?

    Moral learnt : Remember if getting bribe make it really big - you will not get caught but if you do, you have enough to bribe the full system and pay top lawyers to escape.

    You are very correct Mandy.This is very wrong of the Principal to do this, having said this, the salary these government servants are paid is not enough at all, how can they have a decent life when they are paid peanuts?
