“Sir what’s your decision about icse exam I think u must not cancel it because our future depends on it,” said Shreyansh.
As states had instructed schools to waive off fees, the teachers expressed their concern about their salary. “If school fee is waived how will my school pay me my salary? Many teachers won’t be able to survive without salaries especially the one’s who are living alone or are not even permanent,” teacher Rhea Sanjeev expressed her concern.

“I wish to know if school fees will be waived off, who will pay the teachers and other working staff? If a teacher is the only source of income for family, then how the family is going to survive without pay?,” said another teacher.
Sir i want to mention you that online study is very boring because of the following reasons:-
1.) Our teachers don’t have dslr camera so, the quality of the video is very poor.
2.) My eyes starts paining due to online study. @DrRPNishank@HRDMinistry
