In a bid to make Math classes creative and not too boring, an assistant professor of a government college for women in Haryana’s Karnal taught love equations in classroom instead of mathematics formulas. A video of his teaching love lessons went viral following which, the teacher named Charan Singh received a suspension letter in his e-mail.
According to the reports, Singh who was posted at Government PG College, Sector 14, has been working in the college on deputation.
A video shot by first year B.Com students surfaced online in which Charan Singh was giving love lessons to the girls. The girls could be heard laughing in the video when the professor was telling them the difference between friendship, attraction, crush and love.
The first lesson was about friendship, which according to the professor is about ‘closeness’ minus ‘attraction’. “Husband and wife become friends in old age after the physical attraction dies down,” Charan Singh said. The professor then asked the students what will be the combination of ‘closeness’ and ‘attraction’, to which the girls answered ‘love’.
A girl student had filmed the proceedings on her mobile phone and made it viral. Interestingly, none of the students objected to the ‘love lessons’ given by the professor their Maths class. No girl came forward to file a complaint against the professor. However, a Karnal-based social activist in a written complaint to the police, demanded Charan Singh’s arrest but no police complaint has been filed so far.
Following the controversy, the college dismissed Charan Singh as the maths teacher and gave him another subject to teach.
