Kolkata, Feb 7: As a primary school student, most of us remember writing an essay on "My Family", in which children describe about their families.

Similarly, a 10-year-old Class 5th student at a school in Salt Lake in Kolkata was also asked to write an essay on "My Family". Her heart-wrenching words left the teacher astonished.


In the essay, the girl described her family as, "My dad is a bad man. He beats my mother regularly. Mom and I cry every night. No one cares for us. Even our uncles have turned a deaf ear to us. Dad beats me also. This is my family."

"When I will grow up, I will take my mother far away from my dad", the distraught girl further wrote.

The girl's English class teacher, who was left stunned by the content of girl's essay, took the matter to school principal and a counseller.

The school counseller summoned girls' parents to the school and advised them to either live separately or stay with harmony, for the better future of their child.
