Mumbai. If you are a North-Indian Punjabi, you must be well aware of the terror of a chittar? The term is the ultimate weapon of a Punjabi mother to hit their children with shoes, slippers or any other form of footwear.
At a time when the Right to Education (RTE) Act prohibits any form of corporal punishment against children in schools, a survey has revealed that kids still face spanking at home.
A recently conducted nationwide survey has highlighted that 77.5% parents resort to hitting children, with 28% admitting that they do this on a regular basis. And the sale of Chappal shows the same. The CBSE results are due in the week from 8th to 15th May. Parents are not worried about the election results, but they are worried about the CBSE results as according to most Indian parents only good marks shapes the career of their kid.
All major slipper and chappal companies are recording big sales and the figures are so large that they have earned the profit for the whole year. Parents buy slippers of all types of sizes as they need to match the size of the chappal with the size of their kid’s cheek. After the week of the results Iodex, Burnol, and band-aid companies are expecting their sales to hit the roof as the kids will require it to counter the pain inflicted by their parents.
