I work in a govet school under delhi administration as a hindi teacher.
there is one colleague who passes personal comments on my dresses that they are too fashionable for a teacher to wear(i wear salwar suits),on my jewellery on my kajal,on me applying nailpolish,etc.many teachers in my school come daily in anarkalis,jeans with kurti,high heels,open hair,long earrings,etc etc.but she never criticises them becoz they are her frenz.
she also interferes and tries to put my views down when i'm having a conversation with any teacher even though it's none of her business.
after school,we use the same cab to reach our homes.
its too hot in delhi summers.she always occupies the front seat (which is comfortable)so that i cant sit there by reaching slightly before school bell rings.i have a health issue becoz of which i need to sit at the front seat so that i can stretch my legs.talking to the driver doesnt help since he too fears her.
likewise there are many more incidents where she does or says things that trouble me or defame me.but she does them so subtly that nobody knows.
for example once i was wearing a neon shade salwar suit.
on the same day in our cab she said that she hates neon colours because they irritate her eyes.on questioning her,she fought that she was talking generally.
i am facing deep anxiety due to her bullying behavior.
i have tried to reason with her many times but she's too quarrelsome.
i tell principal but she does not take my complaint seriously and tells me to take a transfer.
now what am i to do?please dont suggest me a transfer.
