Many societies that believe in the Evil Eye also adhere to a strict caste system, like the one in India. It is often those at the bottom of the caste, the "untouchables" who are blamed and accused of casting the Evil Eye upon those higher up in the caste system.
This is the caste system in India. My baap and Sassur were both part of the Brahmin caste. However, this does not always mean that we are the wealthiest. Both my family and my groom's family have stuggled with money all our lives.
You KNOW something's wrong with the education system when people hope for disasters, fake illness, consider killing themselves, hoping they have an appointment, or hoping they're going on a trip and they're leaving on a school day. Basically, hoping for ANYTHING to get out of school.
Best rant ever...some teachers are so cruel. I had a few. Being a teacher is so important. You are fostering and nurturing the youth. Kids aren't there for you to use and abuse to make you feel better.
