Addressing the principals, Daya Pant of NCERT pointed out, "At least once in a day we should ask ourselves, whether we've spoken any harsh words to anybody and we should teach the same to our students too."

Sourish Bhattacharyya, associate editor of Hindustan Times lamented, "As a parent I can say teachers call us parents only to inform how well the kid has scored in the exams, but they never call us for the all round development of the child."
