Mumbai. Parents who went for new admission of their kid in an Angrezi medium school had heated exchange with the school principal after she refused to entertain on their demands.
“I was not asking for the moon. I requested, Ma’am the fees structure your school has does not match with our status. She told us, it is beyond her capacity when I requested her to make it at least 2.5 lakhs per annum”, said Gautam, father of the child.
Gautam added, “I understand she has certain compulsions to deal with. But Schools must understand our situation too. How I will deal with my relatives who do not send their kids to any school where fees are less than 3 lakhs per annum”.
“I am working as HR head of an FMCG company, my husband is a VP. Log kya bolenge. Khali BMW aur iPhone X flash karne se toh nahin hota hai aaj kal. All my friends will ask in Kitty parties, you both earn so much, and you are going to send your only kid to such school?”, said Radhika, mother of the child.
“Other day my neighbor saw my Papa’s heart surgery bill. By looking at the bill she told, only 5 lakhs? She told me Beti, you should have taken your father to a ‘good’ hospital”, added Radhika who refused to touch a multiplex samosa billed 150 rupees.
School Principal has full empathy for Parents like Gautam and Radhika. “I have already told my school top management, it’s high time we build a school like the infrastructure shown in SOTY2 and our starting fees should go above 4 lakhs per annum”, said the school Principal.
