“Don’t say Jai Shri Krishna, this is English medium school” Father gives a good message to modern teacher

The Hindi language is our mother tongue and it is the identity of our culture. However, in today’s times, it is gradually being left behind. Everyone is adopting Western culture, and they are forgetting their own culture, or they might say that they are feeling ashamed of it. A video is being circulated on social media that showcases our culture and traditions.

The video depicts a scene from a school where a student greets his teacher by saying “Jai Shri Krishna” instead of “Good morning.”  But his teacher feels very embarrassed to hear this, she tells the student that you study in an English medium school. You should say good morning, not Jai Shri Krishna. However, the student wishes the evening to the teacher only by saying, Jai Shri Krishna. Due to this the teacher gets angry and calls his parents to the school.

But the student’s father explains to the teacher, “You forgot your values and your culture even while living in the country of India. If my child is saying Jai Shri Krishna instead of Good morning, then there is nothing wrong with it. The name of God is on his tongue, so what’s wrong with taking the name of God? And you are forgetting that school is also a temple of education. If we can say God bless you in school then what is the problem in saying Jai Shri Krishna? “

However, the problem is in all of us, we have started feeling ashamed of our culture. There is no shame in adopting Western culture, but when it comes to our own culture, we feel very ashamed and this is true.

With whom we are identified and we exist, we should not be ashamed of that. This video has given a very inspirational message. This video is helping to remind us of our culture, and giving a lesson to those people who are ashamed of their culture.
