Teachers from Shankarapeta government high school in SangaReddy district of Telangana have been protesting against dilapidated condition of their school by wearing helmets inside classrooms while teaching. 

The ceiling of the school has been leaking ever since the monsoon began and patches have been peeling off, leaving 600 odd students and their teachers in the lurch.
The teachers staged this unique protest after three years raising formal complaints with the authorities time and again.

Students say their concentration has shifted towards the ceiling and not their studies as their afraid the roof could collapse at any moment. Why is that a state government that has been promoting digital classrooms cannot take care of even basic necessities?
