Mandya: Principal uploads semi-nude pic on WhatsApp, earns people's ire


Daijiworld Media Network - Mandya (SP)

Mandya, Jul 20: Principal of Kittur Rani Chennamma residential school, Shivakumar, finds himself in a soup after uploading his semi-nude photo along with a liquor bottle in a WhatsApp group. His action has drawn widespread criticism and anger.

Shivakumar happens to be the principal of Kittur 'Rani Chennamma residential school near Vaddarahalli in Malavalli taluk, Mandya district. He finds himself in an unenviable position after posting a photo of his private life in which he is seen partially clad, with a liquor bottle placed near him.

It is said that he uploaded the photo in a drunken state. The picture was taken in the government residential quarters allotted to him in the school campus.

This controversial selfie was shared in a WhatsApp group having media persons, local people's representatives and many taluk level officials as members.

    After Jarakihole episode this looks like silly and unwanted controversy.When the rulers don't have ethics we cannot complain about others.

    People who work as public servants, law makers, bureaucrats, academicians, priests, medico's have to maintain a certain decorum, modesty, and propriety. It doesn't mean that they cannot enjoy their private life, yes they do. They have every right to enjoy their private life, go to places where the rest of us go and lead a normal life. Since these guys are the torch bearers, they have to be really careful about their habits and how they project themselves in the public domain. Actors are entertainers, they are not public servants. Clinton had to face impeachment. If he was not a public servant, it would have been completely normal.

    Rajesh Shetty Udipi,what is there when he drinks in his room?Nothing .But you forget as he is a partially clad ,withe that pose ,a person in a position in Public,doesnt make good impression but bad.People may think how it will be later with children to handover in the school believe him.?Only this picture is enough later suppose something goes wrong in that school.He can drink dance or nude move about private.But please dont send your image in media.In promis do that ,it is their business.They have to live with it.But not as principal in school.Shows his intention here.Never with a bottle even as joke.Is a bottle of alcohol drink necessary for a person ?Be as a educated and social versed man s image comes always good to the soceity.He is not principal in a brothel,but residential school.

    What's wrong in it, he is Drinking in his room. Unlike some high society people who drink on the streets & break bottles on roadside. Morover what obscenity, nowadays obscenity is freely shown on social media, bollywood parties, on the street. This is a Democratic country.

    wrong is making public of his private life. What was the need to show himself half nude with a bottle? Let alone the other people. what impression his own students will have about their principal? By displaying his private act, he had earned disrespect in society.

    What is problem in this pic? He is in his home attire and he is having a relaxing drink after a hard day work like many here in Canada. Fascist govt in India isninterfering in private life’s of innocent people’s in India nowadays. It must be investigated how this photo of principal sir is leaking, maybe effect of this Pegasus snooping by central Govt. here after daily works we all colleagues is going together to some corner shops in Scarborough and sharing some cans of beer or cider which anybody is managing to procure on credit . It is socially acceptable norms as long as no ruckus is created and we are all careful to avoid any police scrutiny due to visa issue. Govts must not interfere in private life of citizens as long as they obey the laws.

    Selection of Teachers and police needs to be looked Holistically. These 2 profession is a service to man kind. The first one builds citizens for good society and another protects good society. we must look this 2 profession beyond salary and employment generation . the best people morally fit, psychologically fit, who are brought up in a good surrounding must be appointed as teachers and policeman ( esp. constable level of police) who are in contact with general public everyday. Sending a pics of one drinking on a WA group being in such a responsible post is nothing but a dirty mind hidden. check him out first .

    All of us, brainwashed with 74 years of socialism, think that others must “serve” and “sacrifice” for us while we amass wealth for ourselves. There is a famous saying: “pay peanuts and get monkeys”. If we want good teachers and police they have to be paid well, regularly trained well, equipped well, treated with the same dignity and respect as expected from them. Accountability has to be built into the system that employs them or anybody else in any profession. Man naturally looks after his self-interest first. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Below is a quote from pg. 173 of “Breaking free of Nehru:Let’s unleash India”: Second, in India, civil servants are always exhorted to sacrifice for the sake of the country. While it is true that good civil servants are not driven only by money, they do expect to be looked after reasonably well as acknowledgement of their contributions and for the management burden they shoulder. In any event, it is improper for civil servants (or anyone else for that matter) to be asked to sacrifice. Indeed, the concept of sacrifice is anathema to a free society. A free citizen never sacrifices and never asks anyone for a sacrifice. If I were to have the occasion to save the life of a drowning child at the cost of my own, that would not be a sacrifice. Having voluntarily chosen such a course of action, ......... What may appear to be altruism on the surface is often enlightened and reasoned selfishness - the ultimate virtue. Enlightened selfishness and so-called altruism merge seamlessly into one. As a general rule, each of us helps our society most by looking after ourselves and standing on our own feet. A free society is therefore only entitled to make an appeal to the self-interest of others.

    In India, sometimes designation is given for the sake of giving. A person working in a corner shop dealing with electrical items, mobile accessories etc have their names printed as General Manager. A Co. decided to print cards to all their employees and office boy serving tea was also given designation as Catering Manager. This person is too young to be a principal. Perhaps he is just a head master in a small school as generally this position goes to someone with years of experience and caliber. It is not just a beer bottle but the background of other things explains his position.

    Just bcoz a alcohol bottle is seen in the picture doesn't necessarily mean he was drinking. He doesn't seem to look drunk either. People need to change their thinking seriously. Tomorrow they will show a woman in a saree and say she's exposing her cleavage.

    Do you mean he was doing puja with no clothes on upper body and was using the beer bottle as a statue of deity? Please don't defend anyone just for the heck of it. Misbehaviour or misdemeanor of such kind, even more so, when the culprit happens to the Principal has to be condemned.

    Mario Baba, What you are saying...he is the principal of the college and need to maintain some sort of discipline and standard in his personal or social behaviour to command the respect from his students. Let him drink and do nanga nach in his bedroom without posting the pictures in public social media. What if your own are attending the college where he is the principal. Ha.... decent women in saree or churidar will never expose their bodies but sometimes some go with the trend....!!!!

    There is something called Responsibility. Which is seen clearly missing in this person. No offence whether he is drunk or not. But he should have acted in some more responsible way.
