Respected Chitlange sir / Principal madam,

Birla school kalyan has enjoyed a remarkable reputation in the field of education in the city of kalyan. But off late, the school has started taking unilateral decisions which are proving extremely troublesome for the parents.Regarding a few issues :

1. Recently school has passed an order that children will have to carry tiffins for breakfast and lunch right in the morning when they come to school at 8 am. Many of us mothers are working class parents, who are juggling on many fronts and have got certain things sorted according to the availability of time/people and work schedule. Anyone who has 2 children, has to make 4 tiffins early in the morning and this is extremely difficult. Please don't send us on a guilt trip that we want to rest and don't want to take trouble of making tiffins in the morning and hence we are raising this issue. Sir/madam please either allow tiffins in school as they used to come before or start canteen facility for who ever opts for it. How are 100% parents expected to arrive at a consensus on any issue? This matter is troubling many parents but either they are too worried but not finding a way to raise this issue or are too busy or are simply too scared to take this matter forward.

2. The fee hike that is proposed is too steep. The school should either call a general meeting of all parents or they should ask the PTA members to inform their respective class about the fee hike before they agree to anything on behalf of parents. How can the school hike the fees so much by taking only PTA member's consent?

There are many other issues which are a great cause of concern to many parents, but in view of the recent order by school regarding these 2 issues, we parents request you to kindly reconsider and revert these decisions.Anytime any parent voices an opinion contrary to what school is trying to implement, please don't turn them down by either putting the mothers on a guilt trip or by saying that anyone who does not agree can ask for LC from school. We love Birla school, our children love Birla school, so we sincerely hope you will take our troubles into consideration.

Thanking you in anticipation,


Mrs. Niharika Shah
