Although there are laws in India against corporal punishment, in a majority of schools, it is still a daily occurrence that teachers beat, smack or hit children. They are punished for small offences but often enough teachers become violent without any reason as well.

Balendu and his family have made it one of their goals to fight corporal punishment. In their own charity school, there is a strict policy of non-violence and an emphasis is put on a loving environment to learn in.
