How much does a Teacher earn in Your kid’s School?

All parents do enquire about the fee structure while searching for the right shool for the kid, but how many of us ask them about the pay package of their staff?

Except few exceptions where in a talented married woman might prefer to work in neighborhood school for less salary to keep herself engaged, most people do join jobs to earn money, to make a better living. And they would demand more salary if they are more talented. Organisations have to pay more to attract the best talents. So it is clear that if a school needs best teachers it has to pay them more.

These days we are paying minimum one lakh per annum for the best schools in cities. It can be Hyderabad, Bangaloe, Mumbai or Pune. If the class strength is 20 students, then those students are bringing 20 lakh per annum to the school. Out of this, how much is going to Teacher as Salary? In most of the cases not even 2 lakhs!! Can you believe it? Thus the quality of teacher is nowhere matching our expectations. Not only teachers, most of the events, activities, attitudes everything makes us feel shocked rather than surprised!!

So next time you choose a school, be doubly sure of the salary the teacher gets, that will tell us how qualified and efficient he/she is and inturn we can understand what to expect from the school!

what do you say?

Best Surgeon for Hernia Problem

Dr.Mohan Das of Raghavendra Nursing Home, Shimoga, Karnataka, India is the best surgeon I have seen for hernia related problems.

From our past experience we were quite disappointed with major hospitals both in Bangalore and Mysore. Hence even though my mother was diagnosed with Hernia almost six months back we were hesitating to go for surgery. This is when my sister’s sister in law underwent Hernia surgery at Raghavendra Nursing home in Shimoga. We found the doctor to be very efficient and also could see how fast our relative recovered.

Hence without any second thought we decided we should go to Dr.Mohan das. Dr. Mohan Das might be having more than 30 years of experience in surgery. He is not soft spoken, hence many patients might get fooled by his rough and tough behavior. But we took every thing positives as we were informed of his talking styles before hand. First of all he scolded my mom for postponing the surgery for so long. He said had she come earlier the Hernia growth would have been smaller and could have gone for laproscopic surgery. Now it was big and major surgery was needed.  We got more worried. But nevertheless there was no other option.

We got her admitted on November 28th and to my astonishment I realized that the Nursing home did not have elevator. Stair case on one side and sliding path on other side to move patients in stretcher. Even though the hospital is not very posh we could see that it was neatly maintained. The corridors and all the rooms were cleaned almost thrice a day. Daily bathrooms and sink were washed. I could never smell any bad odor in the hospital premises.

29th was the Surgery and I was more tensed, my mother kept herself cool and said she was not tensed. Surgery was over by 11.30am, and she was moved to the ICU, the anesthesia effect was there hence she could not feel the pain, she spoke to all of us and I was so relieved. She told me that she kept talking with doctors when surgery was going on and it was lively. Also she was carefully shifted to other bed after surgery. She did not have any problem when she was shifted from OT to ICU.

I could remember that my experience when I was shifted from OT to Ward during my C section was not so smooth, so was my sister’s experience in Fortis Bangalore.

The good thing with this hospital is doctor came daily twice even after surgery to check the health of patient, in big hospitals the surgeon hardly visits the patient after the surgery is over. He delegates all the work to juniors. We have to keep running behind the doctors and nurses.

The nursing staff was very good and efficient, they always ensured that Patient is not hurt while giving injections, and other related procedures.

As the doctor accepts only one or two surgery per day he gives his full attention and time to patients. Also there is no hurry in discharging the patients. My mother was discharged after one week. She needs somebody’s help to get up from bed because of age factor and also her knee pain. Otherwise I definitely felt the recovery speed was better compared to previous surgeries she had.

I would suggest you go for Dr.Mohan das irrespective of your place of domicile. Shimoga is not very costly your relatives can stay in a nearby lodge and can take care of you.

The total fee was INR 60,200/- which included Surgery, all the medicines and special ward stay.

The Address of the Nursing home is

Sri Raghavendra Nursing Home
Laproscopy surgical center
JPN Road,First cross
Pin code – 577201

Divide and Rule – Congress Mantra

Teacher Students

School Children

Divide and rule seems to be the mantra of Congress all over India irrespective of states. Long after the British left India, the congress continues to follow the rules set by British!

I must have asked nearly 100 people in Hyderabad as to if they need bifurcation of state, and the answer is NO. But still the congress nodded to division of state and thus dividing the people.

In Karnataka the Government has taken dividing people to new heights. First it came with some Shaadi scheme where in it said it will give money to minority community for wedding purpose. So the other communities obviously asked ‘Why only for them?’

Now the Government has said education tour to students from backward classes! This will be a torture to the backward classes than treat! Because the other students will start hating them, everybody will come to know who belongs to the backward class. The students will start forming their own group on their caste and creed. Is it necessary?

Till date discrimination for the backward, minority, economically backward etc started at University level because of reservation. People do not bother about students who score less and come through donation seat, but there is a discrimination for those who come from reservation. But now even the school students have to undergo through this Hell. How cruel, how irresponsible government!!

VOLVO Bus precautions

If you are in India, I am sure you would have come across the recent accidents that happened to two Volvo buses departing from Bangalore. One was of Jabbar Travels which was heading to Hyderabad from Bangalore and another was National Travels bus which was going to Mumbai from Bangalore.

TV9 Kannada showed some of the Emergency openings in VOLVO buses. Sharing the same with you.

  1. In KSRTC buses there will be hammer near windows and also a square shaped marked on windows which you have to break with hammer.
  2. An emergency door near the second or third seat, if you fold the seat you will be able to see the door, you can open the same and come out.
  3. You can break the rear glass panel.
  4. you can come out from Driver’s door.
  5. you can also lift the ventilator door and try to come out from there.

Please ensure what all emergency exit options available in the bus you travel before departure.

Please ask the driver and conductor to check the luggage of all passengers so that nobody is carrying any inflammable material.

It is high time we start taking responsibility to save our lives!!

JK Mania

jk ashvinijk ashvini

Few months back when they started showing the preview of Ashwini Nakshatra in ETV Kannada, I never thought I would watch that serial. But recently while surfing through channels I came across this character called JK and stopped to watch his acting. He really has a new style and the director has really hit jackpot by introducing this guy. Small screen is too small for him, no wonder if he jumps to big screen soon.

All the best Karthik, great going. Keep it up.

An Immune India!

Well Indiblogger has come up with new contest ‘An immune India’ from Dabur, and wants bloggers to write about being healthy. But as soon as I read the topic my mind ran superfast in a different direction. India is immune to what? Yes literally we are not immune to Dengue or Malaria! It still attacks us. We are not immune to obesity, cancer, heart attack, Diabetes so on and so forth. But we are more immune few things homogeneously throughout India such as

  1. Corruption
  2. Violence on Woman
  3. Attack on Self respect
  4. Attack on freedom of speech
  5. Over powering of foreign culture over Indian culture
  6. Increasing cast-ism
  7. Fake organisations
  8. Diminishing Indian Languages…

so on and on and on………..

We have built such a strong immunity to all these.

A school asks you to pay donation in cash and does not give receipt, you pay and do not argue.. we are immune to corruption. It does not touch our nerves. It never makes us get angry, or ask for a reason.

A boy is teasing a girl on the road, there are plenty of people around, but no body is bothered. Does not affect them in any way. None of my concern!

You know the auto driver has wrong meter, you do not complain, why take unnecessary risk?

The candidates know that it was a fake interview, conducted just for the sake of rules and regulations, but nobody will complain! Not affected, not bothered.

There will be 50 students in a class so around 100 responsible parents, but if the teacher makes mistakes in Notes or teaching, nobody will question. Why should I? Why not others? Why should I be the problematic parent?

Where is India heading with this kind of immunity? When does our hair stand straight and hand is ready to give a punch? when will we pick up the phone and dial 100 as soon as we see something wrong?

Is it because of this urban lifestyle that our bodies have become so weak that they no more hold any hot blood??

will Dabur help us? To be not immune to these things??

Should we laugh at this or cry??
