Rajasthan Government School Teacher Perform 'Nagin' Dance:
"We have suspended a teacher who organised the dance and have issued show-cause notices to two others as they are new recruits and may not be aware of the rules. There is no harm in organising dance and playful activities, but a code of conduct should be maintained," Jalore district education officer Ashok Roeshwal was quoted by Times Of India as saying. Some teachers, however, objected to the action taken against those were seen dancing.
"They were just enjoying with other teachers during the break time. What's vulgar or harmful in this? Can't a government employee have a good time with colleagues? This is not justified," said one of the teachers.
