Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Sept 11: Amid uncertainty, the authorities have started preparations of examinations to students without completion of the syllabus.
The students in Kashmir have not been able to go to schools. Although the government has made an effort by reopening of schools till middle class, still the parents showed reluctance to send their wards to schools due to prevailing situation.
At the same time, the government has asked students to submit examination forms for various examinations.
Shahid, a class 10th student has moved out of his home only few times since August 5 after clampdown by the government, following abrogation of Article 370 and 35A.
He has been confined inside four walls, causing him distress and anxiety. "We have completed less than 30 percent of our syllabus. How can we sit in examinations," he asked.
He said before announcement of dates for examinations, the government should clear the air how to conduct the examinations. "The authorities should tell us whether there will be any curtailment of syllabus," he said.
Students are in great stress as there has been no class work for over a month. Students said that it was very difficult for them to focus on studies in the current situation.
Education department has directed 10th, 11th and 12th class students to submit their board exam forms in their respective schools. "I don't know what to do. We have completed less than 40 percent of syllabus. I am in great distress and not able to study," said Adil, a class 12th student.
A doctor at Srinagar's SMHS Hospital said the ongoing crisis have taken a toll on the mental health especially on children in Kashmir. "During such situation, people face depressions and also develop post traumatic mental disorder," the doctor said, wishing not to be quoted by name.
"There will be post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) of the ongoing crisis but its intensity will be known when doctors examine such patients as people are not able to visit hospitals," he added.
PTSD is a condition that develops after an individual goes through a terrifying ordeal that involves physical harm or the threat of a physical harm. Symptoms may include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events, mental or physical distress to trauma-related cues, attempts to avoid trauma-related cues, alterations in how a person thinks and feels, and increased arousal.
