BBC: School Fire in Tamilnadu kills
75 80 kids.
In typical Indian custom the authorities have arrested the principal.
For anyone who has deep understanding of Indian school system, this is no surprise. Most schools in India lack basic facilities like drinking water and bathroom, so I am not shocked that there was lack of water to fight the fire. The wrong is with the society and not with the head-master. Poor teacher, let him go.
Also, this arrest is for public consumption. Who has been convicted in India for the 1981 circus fire (some 300 children died), the contaminated alcohol (hundreds died of poisoning) tragedy, or the terrible Bhopal Gas Leak (three thousand died)?
Dishonest system, helpless population.
