In India, unlike the system in foreign countries of using tablets and mobiles for the educational purposes and issuing a set of books from library for a year and then returning them, lockers in school etc, the system of education in India still based on carrying the books and notebooks to school everyday and bringing them back home continues.
Students in India are required to carry the heavy notebooks and textbooks to school everyday. This makes their bag really heavy and it really becomes a burden for them to carry it to and fro from the school.
The institutions here however, are focusing on the issue to solve the problem but it still remains unsolved. Due to these heavy backs students also complain of back and shoulder aches. The heavy bags are the real problem behind these aches. Therefore it is an important problem that need to be solved as fast as possible.
I composed a short poem on this issue. Here it goes,
“HEAVY SCHOOL BAGS”
I would like to call the child helpline
To impose on my school a big fine
For making us carry such heavy bags
All jammed with folders, books and other stacks
It causes pain in our backs
And our hunched shoulders just proves that
Please have mercy on us
So that carrying them becomes easy for us.
