Recently, a section of students from PSBB School in Chennai accused their school's Commerce Teacher, Rajagopalan, of making sexual advances. The incident came as a shocker for the entire state of Tamil Nadu and with immediate effect, the Police arrested Rajagopalan on charges of sexual harassment. He is being inquired by the Police and further details are awaited. Meanwhile, this incident has made many people open up about their traumatic school experience. Actress Gouri Kishan, who rose to fame through movies like 96 and Master, took to her Instagram page to mention that she also had similar disturbing experiences during her schooling at The Hindu Senior Secondary School, in Chennai.

Gouri mentioned that she would not like to take the names of the teachers who were involved in these incidents. Gouri's long note read, "In light of the recent expose on PSBB for harassment and misconduct, I'd like to put forward that my schooling in Hindu Senior Secondary, Adyar was hugely problematic too! After speaking to several of my school mates about the same, we've all come to a collective realisation that there was a great deal of ingrained normalising that had taken place in the school environment. Slut shaming, casteism, bullying, body shaming, character assassination, objectification, baseless accusations thrown at students, consequentially having a profound impact on a child's self esteem.

Most of us from HSSS, myself included, have faced all of the above, first hand. I don't wish to take names of the teachers who caused the emotional mayhem, but it certainly does not discount the fact that I wish to see a serious shift in culture. The environment in school was toxic as hell, and my heart goes out to each and every person who faced similar trauma - hearing personal accounts of PSBB, CV has been distressing, to say the least. Honestly, at this point, I'm genuinely shocked that in spite of the messed up schooling, many of us turned out quite alright but childhood trauma (Especially unresolved ones) run deep, and is proven psychologically that it is the reason behind several issues we face in adulthood too!

Having recalled this unpleasantness has been traumatic but a huge burden off my chest. Now I wish, more of you come out with your personal accounts in order to take this up with the school administration formally, so that we can at least hope that the forthcoming batches don't face similar abuse!".
