Dial T for TamilNadu (Part II)

I love my home state of Tamil Nadu.

Check out this news about Vellammal School, one that strives to maintain the decorum and discipline inferred from our culture. A gender based segregation is effective in a school of about 11000 students.

Cute, isnt it?

I wonder that parents of 11000 students thought it fit to put their children there.

- Does it reflect that the people of Tamilnadu want what the school enforces?
- Or is it a case, that considering various factors, the academic learning, facilities etc far outweigh the interaction among students factor?
Maybe a person like HH G'ma would be able to throw more light on this aspect.

Hey Kid,

Liked ur blog.

I am from this school (graduated out of it in 2000). Apparently this school has an engineering college and i did my bachelors too
(engineering) at this place. I have spent a whole lot of my childhood ( 8 + 4 years ) studying in this place. I was never restricted from talking to girls while I was at school or college. There was no restriction for a healthy relationship between boys and girls both at school and in college. The school bagged several awards (including one national award
a couple of years ago) for its academic excellence. The engineering college has been
consistently ranked among the top under Anna university for the past 4 to 5 years in terms of its results. The founder of this school, velammal was once invited by our Hon'ble President Shri Abdul kalam to his residence. I am really proud of this place. This school is known for its scholarships and huge awards that it bestows upon its students for their excellence in academics and sports. I was one of the beneficiaries.
This news article is very shocking to me. I enjoyed great freedom in organising events, joint trips involving boys and girls. I hope this news is not true. I still maintain a good rapport with the chairman of this institution. I shall lodge my protest once I confirm the veracity of this article. No parent with right senses would ever put his child in a school with such a stupid rule.

Thanks a lot for sharing this news in your blog. I concurr with all the other comments. I also believe that such a rule in school is definitely not healthy for its students.
