There is a punishment called 'murga'. Do you know what it means? Many school children complain about this humiliating and painful punishment. One student wrote at a website for filing in stupid school punishments in her school: "I was made murga in school when in 10 to 12 classes. Very shameful to be murga in co-ed school in class. Our maths teacher made girls murga in ground while boys used to raise hands. Coming late punishement was murga in assembly in front of all. My legs starts paining when made murga in 12 class because become old. Girls should not be made murga in high schools." I still don't know the complete details of the 'murga' punishment. Do you?
