Give justice to my elderly parents

This petition made change with 512 supporters!

My parents have dedicated their whole lives to educating bright but underprivileged kids.They are kind and simple yet intelligent educators who are suffering because of indifference shown by authority.

My mother Mrs. K. Sharma, who is a senior teacher at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya (JNV), Distt. Etah, is 58 years now and is suffering from chronic diabetes and many other ailments. My father, who is a principal, is posted in Mathura. As my mother can't live alone and has to stay with my father in Mathura, she is unwillingly on leave. Not only this causes her great distress, it is bad for students who are missing out on quality education.

There are various possible options that would put my parents at the same location, without causing any inconvenience to anyone. That it has not been done despite repeated requests shows how authority lacks empathy.

A couple who has worked hard for decades for such a noble cause shouldn't be made to suffer like this. Transferring of a 58 year old teacher so that she is united with her husband can't be such a tough task for an organization which is 3 decades old. If an organization can't support and understand the needs of its employees, how would it cater to rest of the society?

I am proud to be a product of JNV schools, as are my sister and brother. People like my parents who have helped tens of thousands of students do good in life should be helped in every way possible. It's not a favour they should be asking for; it's their right. If they don't get justice, then the ideals based on which these schools were started are not being practiced by those in power.

On behalf of my ailing mother, I request everyone to sign this petition.
