School building slab collapses; 3 kids serious


Anantapur: At least 15 students of Class 6 of Mandal Parishad Upper Primary School at Borampalli village in Kalyandurg mandal in the district suffered injuries after the pieces of the slab in the classroom collapsed and fell on them. Three of the students were reported to be seriously injured.
Sources said, the Upper Primary School building was constructed 30 years ago with RCC roofing at Borampalli village. Nearly 160 students were studying in the government school including 22 in the Class 6. The Class 6 students had entered the classroom after having their mid-day meal at around 2 pm. All the 22 students were sitting in the class room when the incident happened.
Sources said that pieces of the concrete RCC slab started falling down in the classroom. Different sizes including a few big pieces fell on the students causing serious head injuries for some. Students who were identified with serious head injuries were K Satyasai Simha, B Praveen Kumar and B Saikumar.
The trio suffered severe injuries as big pieces of the slab reportedly fell on them while 15 others escaped with minor injuries. The school teachers and villagers rushed to the class room and took them to a near-by RDT hospital at Kalyanadurg with the help of 108 ambulance and other private vehicles.
The doctors referred three of the students, Satyasai Simha, Prveen Kumar and Saikumar, to Anantapur General Hospital after their injuries were stated to be serious. The three students, however, were said to be out of danger and were being treated at the general hospital in Anantapur.
Villagers K Hanmi Reddy and B Ramanjineyulu lamented that the officials had neglected their representations to construct a new building for the Upper Primary (UP) school at Borampalli village as the 30-year old structure was badly damaged.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
