In an unusual incident, a number of students were recently found dancing to the tune of high decibel DJ song in a wedding procession in front of Daspalla Boys’ High School in Nayagarh district.

As per reports, a baraat party was moving in front of the school by playing high decibel DJ songs. Some students of the school find it tempting and made up their minds to shake their legs to the tune of the music. Soon, they slipped away from their classes and went outside the campus through the school gate. They joined the baraat and danced wildly with other members of the party.

After a long time, better sense prevailed. A teacher reached the place and asked the students to stop dancing and return to school. While, some students obeyed their teacher, some others continued dancing.

Following the incident, question mark has been raised over the effective management of the school and lackadaisical attitude of the teachers in guiding the students. 

Meanwhile, the headmistress of the school Pranati Patnaik admitted the mistake.

“It was a mistake. We will ensure that these kinds of mistakes will not be repeated in future,” said Patnaik.

“We have more than 450 students. It was a break and we don’t have two common rooms to accommodate both the boys and girls inside the school campus. Some of the students had gone outside to have lunch. They might have joined the baraat party along with some outside children who are not the students of our school,” she said.

The role of NAC is also under scanner as how they gave permission to the baraat party to take their procession in front of the school by playing high decibel DJ sound during day time.
