Sub: English subject denied and Sanskrit subject imposed

Dear Sir,

It has been brought to our notice by Kumari Keshwati D/o Suresh Chander Baghel R/o B-187, Galli No. 13, PH-10, Shiv Vihar K-Nagar, Delhi-94, (Ph no: 09718621614) that she has passed Class X CBSE Examination 2010-11 while studying in Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya, Gokulpur village, Delhi-94. A copy of mark sheet is enclosed hereto for your ready reference. A complaint of Kumari Keshwati addressed to the undersigned is also enclosed hereto.

Kumari Keshwati has complained that despite the fact that she has passed Class X Examination (Passed in English subject also), the school has denied her admission/promotion to Class XI in Humanities stream with English subject and compelling her to take Sanskrit instead of English. The student is very much mentally disturbed by such illegal and unjust action on the part of the school.

The case of Kumari Keshwati is not the only case in which the school has denied English subject and compelled the student to take Sanskrit subject, but almost all Government schools are doing the same thing causing great prejudice to these young students career. It is submitted that the schools by hook or by crook want to show the highest pass percentage even if it is done at the cost of the career and the life of the students. You will appreciate that Sanskrit has no utility whereas without English, it is almost impossible for a person to survive in this competitive world.

It is, therefore, requested that you may kindly look into this matter and take necessary action ensuring that the students are not unnecessarily harassed by the schools by denying them English subject in Humanities stream.

With regards,
