Raman Singh, a mid-level IT executive, recently got his three-and-half-year-old son an admission in nursery in one of the top IB schools in the city, which cost him Rs 2.5 lakh. But, he’s not complaining.

«When we talk about the overall future of the kid, we want to give our best and in the process, are willing to let go some of our luxuries. The school we decided upon for our son had a higher fee structure, but we were also looking for better infrastructure facilities, day-boarding facilities, etc,» said Singh.

Singh bought 10 forms of various schools, including CBSE, ICSE and IB, costing in the range Rs 500 to Rs 1,500 and ended up spending around Rs 10,000 just for that. «Finally, we got the form for this school for Rs 6,000 and paid an admission fee of Rs 75,000. Another Rs 1.5 lakh was deposited, which includes a refundable security of Rs 1 lakh and Rs 50,000 as fee for one quarter. Each quarter, we have to pay Rs 50,000,» he explained.

Admitting that the fee structure is high in the city, Singh said he had a fair idea of the expenses and did not want to make any compromises when it came to sending his son to the best school possible, and was prepared. «Unless you are filthy rich, one has to make an effort to save for the child’s education. I started saving for my son the day he was born,» he said.

Singh added the good thing in Gurgaon, unlike Delhi, is that the schools do not demand donations for admissions. Whatever is charged is on papers.

Sudha Goyal, principal, Scottish High International School, explains the reason for the high fee structure. «Our school gives value for money. The school has day-boarding from 8 am to 4 pm and it spends on breakfast and lunch. Facilities like air-conditioned classrooms, sport grounds, swimming pools, among others, come at a higher price Also IB curriculum is more expensive than the CBSE or ICSE. Where a CBSE curriculum would cost Rs 10,000 per year, an IB curriculum costs anything from Rs 7 lakh to 8 lakh,» said Goyal.

«There are no hidden charges. Everything is known to the parents. Gurgaon has no dearth of schools, be it for CBSE, ICSE and IB curriculum. It is up to parents to choose what they want. Knowing the features and fee structure, they come to us. So, the schools cannot be alleged to be charging a high fee,» she added.

Most parents, however, say that while they don’t mind paying the tuition fee, some demands by schools are unjustified.

Said Anjali Khanna, whose 13-year-old daughter and nine-year-old son are studying in a top CBSE school in the city: «I find the tuition fee reasonable and balanced compared to the international schools, but every now and then, they have competition fee or school day trips, which cost anything from Rs 1,000 to Rs1,500 per trip, which, I think, can easily be managed in less than Rs 1,000. Every annual day, I pay anything ranging from Rs 500-Rs 1,000 for these flashy dresses which would cost much less.»

«Then these schools make it mandatory to buy the book and stationary set from the school, which again is not justified. A book set costs you anything ranging from Rs 3,500-Rs 5,000, but the same books could be purchased at a cheaper rate outside. Some of the books they give are not even being referred in the entire session,» she added.

Added another parent: «My ten-year-old son studies at a top CBSE school, which recently made it mandatory to buy Reebok sports shoes, which are expensive, and not everyone would want to buy them. While many parents may afford it, there are certain others who cut down their other expenses so that they can pay for the tuition fee to provide the best of education to their kids. These expenses come as an extra burden.»

Explaining these additional expenses, Ruchi Seth, principal, DPS, Sushant Lok, said, «If these expenses are giving you value for money, it is justified. There are day trips which a school can organise for Rs 300, Rs 500 and Rs 1,000. This depends on the facilities provided. Also, these trips have educational significance, so we often tie-up with certain organisations, who charge money.»

«The primary reason for making certain things mandatory like stationary is the uniformity that we want, so that a child is not singled out and start vying with each other,» she added.

A year after the Church Street bomb blast case, in which one person was killed and three injured, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) has released a video footage seeking information on the alleged suspect seen in the video.

    It’s a Spud Wrench

    Creating tools for specialty applications isn’t something tool companies started a year ago. Hell, most modern tool conglomerates started out looking to solve just one problem. Milwaukee originally founded to provide a 1/4″ power drill light enough for Ford’s assembly line, for example. That’s why I used to love rolling ’round the flea market tool tables with my Dad when I was a kid. Sometimes we’d find a usable wrench or socket to add to the collection, but the real joy came from picking up some weird-looking tool and asking “What it it?” Or, maybe even more importantly: “What is it for?

    What you see above is called a “spud wrench.”

    It was designed to solve a problem common to workers assembling steel structures. On one hand, they needed a wrench to tighten the bolts. But they also needed to make fine adjustments to alignment to line up the bolt holes. With that in mind, you can pretty much guess how they use the spud wrench.

    Despite its special application, there’s nothing special about the idea of custom tools for custom apps, even when you have to modify the tool yourself. My favorite example of this is a socket we found in the seat box of the old BMW bike Sean and I picked up years back (and had to part out due to lack of available time, dammit). It was a normal Craftsman socket, but someone had clearly machined down the outside of it for clearance. But clearance for what? We found out months later when we went to remove the bent forks. The main fork nut was slightly recessed and BAM: we found the use for that modified socket.

    What’s your favorite custom tool, either one you’ve run across or made yourself?

    My buddy and I have a little hobby where we try to build or combine tools to save space in our saddle-bags. The game is to have as many tools as possible in the smallest amount of space.

    My favorite was also the easiest. I took a bit extension and ground it flat so it would fit into the bit adapter on a Leatherman. That allowed me to carry every bit the bike takes, plus extras.

    His coolest was a hammer head that screws onto the end of a ratchet handle. It is always nice to have a persuader when working on a motorcycle.

    Hammer Rachet, Brilliant!

    Wera must have heard you:

    ground down the depth and thickness of a 10mm box wrench to fit on bolts holding a fan on. also bent and ground down a box wrench to fit on a nut under an injection pump that was near impossible to get to. and many more.

    Finally broke down and bought an O2 sensor socket, just for the cutout and the hex turn head.

    Plenty of spud ratchet wrenches out there too – from Klein, Proto etc,

    Knipex 13 05 160 does most of task I need for a cable work: holding, cutting, stripping and crimping end sleeves. Together with exceptional Knipex brand quality, it’s complete win.

    Considering that those are about as useful for most common crimping applications you’ll come across in North America as two flat rocks, it’s kind of funny that they promote those in the U.S. as crimpers.

    I ground a slot in an old plug socket for driving eye/lag bolts with my electric impact wrench.
    BTW – this blog needs a Facebook page (RSS Graffiti would do nicely. Then I can follow it easier!)

    Fifty years ago, when I was working steel in New York City we called this a “drift wrench”. The tapered part was used to drift steel together. We also had “drift pins” which were double ended pins designed for the same task.

    However, I never saw an adjustable drift wrench since the head was used to back up the pneumatic wrench that set the bolt’s tightening torque. An adjustable wrench would not stand up to the impact of a pneumatic driver

    Tim Gordon says:

    I think there’s a lot of tools out there today that are essentially reproductions of, uh, ‘old favorites’. They usually don’t cost all that much, but they sure aren’t made like the originals ‘back in the day’ were, either! In most cases, the need the quality original filled is mostly in the past, and the new ones are made because they’re a different product than everyone else is marketing. There may very well be a touch of nostalgia involved, too. I can see where a real spud or drift wrench would be solid, fixed sized, and extremely robust. The adjustable head looks handy, and maybe some who acquire them actually find good uses for them that have nothing to do with structural steel. I’ve seen ratcheting ones, and I don’t quite get those! They seem like a long handled ratchet, but the tapered end has to be just miserable to bear against very hard or for very long, and the very end is just pointy enough that it looks dangerous to use!

    I love my Body saw, that i files down the mounts and it now takes regular jig saw blades, like a poor man’s handy saw, or cutzall….

    Or some wrenches ground down to fit into a tight spot, or widen a wrench to fit a specific hold….

    Does anyone know what this measuring tape might be used for? http://store.helpinghandtools.net/12tapemeasure.aspx It has markings exactly twice the size of inches. I picked one up from CVS when I left my regular one at home and it has been driving me crazy ever since. The only thing i could come up with is if you wrap it around something twice it would be correct. The package has 3 languages on it so you would think they would put a metric side on it instead.

    I my self only use the metric system but here is a guy talking about a tape that hase something like you do i dont get the point of it but then again i never used a pice of dry wall or a stud

    Thanks for the link.
    So as far as I can understand, the measurements should actually be half sizes to be able to find the center faster. So this measuring tape is just an outsourced or misunderstood copy of other measuring tapes.
    PS I prefer metric as well since our materials are from Europe but it would drive anyone else we work with crazy.
