Chandigarh: An hour-long teaching session held by former Union Minster and MP Pawan Kumar Bansal with Class XI students of Government Model Senior Secondary School (GMSSS) Sector 19, Chandigarh, passed off in complete chaos for the hapless students because most of them had no clue about the identity of the person speaking in front of them. Despite the fact, Bansal gave a formal introduction before teaching the class.
Surprisingly, soon after the session ended, many students did not know who exactly he was, Some thought him to be ex-Chief Minister while others showed a complete lack of knowledge about Bansal’s background. One such student categorically said, “Bansal looked like the same person who sought votes from their area sometimes last year”.
Only Sunil and Pradhum Mirsha, Sandhaya were among few students who were aware of Bansal’s identity and shared that the session was very
informative. Meanwhile, to make sure that each student should understand the taught lessons, Bansal conducted the entire interaction in Hindi and Punjabi.
I will assure to make next class more interactive: Bansal
“It was a great experience making students aware about country’s constitution, their rights and duties towards the country. From next time, I will make sure that it would be a more interactive session, which was missing in the first session. I am not here to teach, I want to give them legal literacy. After legal studies, I would like to teach students about the environment and how the Indian laws were made.”
You will be surprised as I am parsing admn: Bansal
While answering to a question how he sees the UT Administration’s initiative of introducing voluntary classes, he said, “It’s an excellent initiative. You might be surprised as I am praising department,” added Bansal.
Students had little knowledge about Indian law
However, during the class, the surprising element was that the students were not able to answer even some of the basic questions asked by Bansal. Questions related to January 26 (RepublicDay) and untouchability remained tricky ones for the students.
Drafting and implementation of Indian Constitution; what is sovereignty; Right to Education; what is democracy; fundamental rights and duties and other legal terms.
