Munmun Dutta aka Babita from the cult show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmahhas been actively involved in social causes alongside her hit show. We recently learnt that the actress has been sponsoring education for her hair dresser’s daughter and also her househelp.
In a discussion with one of her co-actors, Munmun found out about the exorbitant fees schools charge these days right from the nursery, the actress who has a reputation of calling a spade a spade had a serious question and put up a hard hitting message on her social media.
She wrote, “Education is everyone’s right. Be it a boy or a girl. In my case, it was the plight of a widow and her 6-year-old girl who needed this help. I’m also very appalled at the fact that schools here charge lakhs per year as fees or donations to impart education to kids! Seriously?
It has supposedly become mandatory for everyone to pay huge donations to get their kids admitted. Their yearly fees gives me the fright. When & how did education become a business I wonder. We studied in schools as well without all the ‘fancy trimmings’ that these schools offer & we turned out fine as individuals. My middle class parents would have got a heart attack if these donations & fees existed then.
