New Dawn School Punishments
Divya trembles in fear as another girl of her class, Solanki, has been punished. Divya sits in her seat, her hands shaking, trying to concentrate on the math problem she was supposed to solve.
Divya cannot bear to watch the punished Solanki, who was standing right beside the teacher’s desk, as this only increases her terror. But from time to time her eyes wandered at the corner to an equally terrifying sight. There lay the clothes of Solanki. Her white shalwar kameez and on top of that her underwear. Solanki was standing completely naked in a 10 standard coed class.
Every day when Divya reaches home, her mother has only one question to ask her, ”What punishments did you receive today?” And Divya tells her that she hasn’t seen the worst yet, meaning she hasn’t recived the naked punishment yet.
At the dinner table, her family usually discusses the things going on in India. The discussion starting from Divya telling the punishments she and other girls had received in school that day. Then her younger brother, who was in class 8 tells how many girls he observed naked and in other punishments. Then the discussion goes into politics, where her father tells them the conditions of India and for how long all this will continue.
Divya: today Solanki was made to take off clothes in class. Her pen’s ink finished and she did not have an extra. Her whole body was trembling because of fear and humiliation.
Suresh (Divya’s father): what punishment did you receive today?
Divya: I got 100 uthak baithak in hindi class for not shaking head when teacher asked if everyone understood. Then I got murga punishment in maths class because I looked away from the blackboard for a while. I was just thinking how to solve. Then I received about 3 slaps from my drawing teacher. I mean they just look for reasons to punish.
Sanjana (Divya’s mother): but thank God you haven’t received the naked punishment as yet.
Divya: it is only a matter of time Mom, before I get it. Sayani has received it twice for what? She was late by one minute after break, and one day she had a stain on her uniform. Nobody can avoid these situations. One day I will have to also stand without clothes in front of boys my own age. May God curse the President for regulating such punishments against girls.
Divya’s brother Sonu always loved hearing Divya’s punishments. He wished he could see her sister in all the punishments she described. Before all this had happened in India, Divya was very bossy. She was a strict elder sister, who took pride in the fact that her younger brother was in her control. She scolded him, pulled him by the ear, slapped him and gave him punishments she desired. Now when things had changed, Divya had gone from being a tigress to a pussy cat. She is no longer bossy and feels vulnerable.
Sonu: today, 2 girls in my class were stripped naked and made to stand on the bench. They had solved the sum wrong. Although I had too, but I just received a scolding.
Sonu made a serious look, although he enjoyed seeing girls like this, every boy did. But one day he said all this while laughing and was given a good beating by Sanjana for laughing at girls who received such punishments. Sanjana scolded him that he should be ashamed as one day his sister might have to face the same the situation. From then on Sonu always spoke with a serious tone about the punishments girls are facing in his school, but deep down he still enjoys watching girls getting punished. He craved to look at Divya’s face when she would be given the naked punishment and telling about it on the dinner table.
Divya: the P.E. class has just become murga class for us. They just take us to the ground to make us murga for 45 minutes. The boys play football, while all the girls have to remain in murga for the whole period. They punish us for a reason like not making a straight line to leave the class. How can someone make a perfectly straight line?
Sanjana: beta, I know what you are going through, there no use complaining, we have to wait until all this is over, this can’t go on forever.
Suresh: surely, other countries will intervene and the laws will be revoked.
Divya ate in silence from then on, wondering how many uthak baihaks she will do tomorrow, for how long she will have to remain in murga and whether tomorrow will be the day she takes off her clothes in a place other than her bathroom.
India had been facing many separatists movements within its borders. The movements became more violent and aggressive. Then the army had to be called upon to conduct intelligence based operations within its cities. The army men started living in the cities to eliminate any separatist people they come across. Soon the army men started thinking the people of India are their property. They thought everything the people had was at their disposal too. They started beating people who refused to give them food or anything they asked for. Going into homes of people and eating anything they found. Soon they started raping women on the streets and also by entering their homes.
This led to massive anti-army campaigns. Women started protesting against the army. In many cities women protested completely naked in order to bring the attention of the foreign media. The separatist movements gained momentum because of these campaigns. In 2020, a fully fledged civil war started in India. It took the Indian army a full one year to take control of India once again. India did not lose any part but a great loss economically was bared. The army overthrew the civilian government and imposed martial law. Then the army took its revenge on the people. It hung all those men that were involved in the war. It took into custody the women who were involved in protests and speeches against the army, and God knows what was happening to them now.
Since women were actively involved in anti-army campaigns, the new President (Dictator) vowed to show women their right place. He regulated extreme punishments on girls in school. He said that women really love being naked in public (referring to the naked protests), so regulated stripping girls in school as punishments. Other harsh punishments like murga, uthak baithak were regulated as well, and teachers were given instructions to give these punishments on the slightest of offence. All girls school were made coed so that it would be extra humiliating. It was made a crime to not send a girl to school. If a family was found not sending their girl to school, their father would be jailed for life, mother would be paraded naked in the streets and then jailed, and the girl will be taken into government custody and then sent to school.
Atrocities outside the school were also carried out. Whenever a woman would be found to be doing anything bad, she would be made to strip there and then. Many women were found standing naked on the streets, or in naked murga position, for petty things like talking on the phone while driving, not wearing seatbelt etc.
Everyone believed this was all temporary as sooner than later other countries would put pressure on India to stop all this non-sense.
The next day was Divya’s P.E. class and she knew what was to follow. As soon as the bell rang everyone made a line to leave the class. The boys left first followed by the girls. Once again when they reached the ground the P.E. teacher said that the line was not straight and all 13 girls will have to be punished.
Although the female teachers did not like punishing girls so extensively, they were forced to. The government was keeping a strict check on schools to ensure the laws were being followed. You never know who is reporting to the government. It could be a male teacher, a male student, a peon or office staff. Female teachers who were reported to the government for showing reluctance in giving girls punishment were paraded naked in the whole school. Divya herself had seen 2 female teachers been paraded.
All 13 girls stood in one line awaiting the punishment they will receive. They all knew that they will be made murga, because for the previous 3 classes they had served murga.
Teacher: this is the 4th time in a row you have not formed a straight line. Should I strip you all and make you stand in the sun.
Divya was horrified after hearing this. She thought this was it. All this time she had been at her best. Completing her homework, scoring full marks in the class tests, making sure her school uniform was spotless and ironed perfectly. She did all this to make sure she wasn’t stripped. But the time had come now, she thought. Out of the 13, 10 girls had received naked punishment at least once. Divya, Mitali and Sunaina were the ones who still hadn’t experienced it.
Teacher: I have a better idea. I want to teach you all a lesson. I will teach you how to coordinate and act as a team, so next time you all will be in a straight line. I want you all to form a circle.
All girls formed a circle. Divya was now anticipating that she would be told to strip.
Teacher: hold each other’s ears.
They all adjusted their positions and took out their hands to catch the ears of the girl next to them. Now a circle was formed in which all girls were holding each other’s ear.
Teacher: move out as far as possible so your hands are stretched out and the ears are pulled.
All did as told to them. Every ones ears were now hurting because they were now being pulled.
Teacher: now you all have to do uthak baithak 100 times. All your uthak baithaks should be synchronized, otherwise your ear will be pulled and the other 2 girls ears you are holding will be pulled also.
Of course it was very difficult for all of them to do uthak baithak together. Divya’s ears were being pulled so harshly after 2 to 3 baithaks that she felt like screaming. After the torture of 100 uthak baithaks were done, all girls were rubbing their ears to abate the pain.
There were still 30 minutes to go in the P.E. class, so the teacher made them murga for the rest of the class. Divya was relieved that they weren’t stripped but she hated becoming murga in the playground. During the P.E class, the junior section has their break and they watch them and laugh.
The PE class had ended but the teacher still hasn’t ended their punishment. The girls are not supposed to stand until told to do so. If they are not told to stand for the whole day they will have to remain in murga. Students of other classes started pouring into the playground, which was also the break area. The boys were laughing at them. This was only the icing on the murgi cake. Ten minutes into break-time they were asked to stand. When they stood every student wanted to look at the face of the murgis which were red with humiliation. They quickly dispersed from the scene. Their bodies feel like breaking apart from the pain. Many girls spend their break time in punishment as well. Teachers just find a reason, like not eating properly or not forming an orderly line in front of canteen. The punishments are usually holding ears, or nonstop uthak baithak for the whole break, or murga. There were strippings during break as well.
Divya wanted to go to the washroom before going to the canteen so she headed for the academic building. She was stopped by a teacher who was on duty during the break. She told Divya you are not supposed to go inside the building for break, but just stay outside. Divya was then sentenced to nonstop uthak baithak for the rest 20 mintues of the break time. Divya did not even know since when this had become a rule in the school, she had spent many breaks inside the academic building. But she knew one thing, arguing or delaying the uthak baithaks would surely result in her being stripped right in the break area. So she started doing the body breaking uthak baithaks.
Some boys of her class saw her doing uthak baithak at the corner of the playground and shouted,
“hahaha, from murga to uthak baithak, bechari (poor soul)”
Divya felt even more embarrassment.
She was doing the uthak baithaks very slowly to make she did minimum amount in the 20 minutes, when the teacher said to increase the speed of her legs otherwise she will strip her.
During the history class a new high was achieved. A girl named Radha was made to strip and then made murga. This was the first time Divya had seen a naked murgi. She thought how can Radha be so stupid, forgetting her notebook at home in situations like these.
In the science class, all girls were ordered to become murga on their desks. The desks in Divya’s school were a 2 student desk on which 2 students sat side by side. Divya used to sit next to a boy. When all girl went onto the desk and folded their bodies in murga pose, Divya felt very embarrasses and exposed. Her buttocks was coming out right next to the face of the boy. And there was a boy sitting behind her as well. He was having a good full view of her butt. Although the uniform was Shalwar kameez in which her legs and body were covered adequately, still she felt exposed because the shalwar usually tightens in murga pose.
A month went by in all this. All 3 girls Divya, Sunaina and Mitali were the ones who hadn’t received the naked punishment. They were being at their best to avoid such situations.
On Monday right after the first month had ended, in the first period a man from the office came to Divya’s class. He had a sheet in his hand. He called out three names from the sheet of paper.
“Divya, Mitali and Sunaina.”
All three raised their hands.
“You three are reported not to have received the naked punishment for the whole month. It is compulsory for every girl to receive it once a month as directed by the government. May I ask all 3 of you to come in front of the class and take off your clothes.”
Divya could not believe what was just happening. All month she had tried to be perfect in order to avoid this, and now she is being given this punishment for nothing at all. All 3 girls closed their books and stood up very slowly. Divya had went red in the face, and she saw both the other also had went red. They moved out slowly from their place and walked up to the front of the class.
“I do not have all day please hurry up.”
Divya unbuttoned her kameez first. Then she removed her it. Then she untied her shalwar and it fell on the floor. She put both the things on the side. She was now standing in only her underwear. She saw that Sunaina and mitali were still to remove their shalwars, so she delayed taking off her underwear. She thought it would be less humiliating to go nude with them.
When Sunaina and Mitali were also in only their underwears also, Divya put her hands on her knickers, signaling that they should remove their knickers now. all three of them lowered their knickers together. Wind blew and touched Divya’s buttocks. The sensation was very humiliating. Wind had never touched her buttocks as she had only been naked in the bathroom. Once the knickers were done, they unclipped the bras and were now standing completely nude. Again the wind touching her buttocks and breast seemed very unsettling. It was as if the wind wanted to enter the butt line of Divya.
The eyes of the boys were groping and caressing the 3 naked bodies standing in front of them.
“you all three will have to stand like this for the whole day.” The man from the office said and left.
Divya thought being perfect is a bigger crime now. She had been given the naked punishment the most severe.
She will have to stand naked for 6 hours straight.
It seemed like an eternity when the bell rang for off and the 3 girls wore their clothes again.
When she got home her mother asked again, what punishments she had received.
Divya went inside the room without saying anything. That was the last day Divya was seen.
