“Gudiya school se vapas aagayi”, my cook said with a sad face. I was alarmed. She is my maid’s daughter. My maid is a responsible lady but tried escaping the wheels of heavy fee structure. She must have thought School Management will forgo it.
I felt Gudiya’s pain of not being able to give the test. I had met her a few months back and gifted my son’s favourite Sunglasses. She was adorable.
My cook and I, along with my maid went to the school, a private academy run by a good Management and understood the whole story. We managed to pacify them after paying the fees. And asked the management to call anytime if Gudiya fails to attend. Many times parent’s negligence is what keep kids away from a good education.
Next day Gudiya resumed School and appeared for the test. Previous day test would be taken care of.
What a feeling of educating a girl child. I have asked my maid if I can pay her fees till the time I am in Jaipur.
