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?

Great! I was going into a school-kids' website for grievances yesterday, and ran into this!!! Glad I brought back your forgotten nostalgic moments! And may be purgation, or even catarrhsis for some others?!

Hi, OK first off ... thanks for the 'best response' reward. Yay. Well 'murga' simply means just that 'murga' = chicken. Here the punisher says 'jao jake kone mein murga ban jao'. And the punished goes to a corner and takes a certain position which is hard to describe but I will try. You basically squat on your feet with your arms tucked under the bend of your knees and coming up to hold your ears. Thus locking you into a really uncomfortable position. You look more or less like a chicken with your elbows sticking out of your sides. This punishment usually lasted during the time the teacher stayed in your classroom, at times they left the room without realising that he had a murga in the corner. At this moment you could regain your seat. lol hope that helps. Love Autumn

This is one way of our traditional Squatting. It is called in telugu as 'Gunjeelu'. But slightly differs with the Murga position. With murga position the punished has to squat like chicken without touching the hands to the earth. It is more hard but good excersige too. Girls were not allowed to do this.

This punishment was the favorite of our maths sir, but he never gave this punishment to girls.
