Presently, bullying is a very common and disturbing phenomenon among the school and college students. It is a troublesome repetition in school that affects a child's wellbeing and security. Though, life is a journey and a tough fight, every child doesn't have the capacity to play tough. Students with a strong family background and strong sense of power try to be scornful and arrogant towards the weaker faction, which may take away their dignity and innocence at a very early stage of life. Bullying may consist of teasing, insulting, name-calling or deliberate act that can cause physical or mental harm to a person. Both, the bullies and victims experience a wide variety of physical and psychological issues, which may stay with them for the rest of their lives. Strict school policies, interpersonal interaction, parental awareness and close monitoring of children could help to combat this problem at the earliest and could help in preventing it. There is a dire need to gather the relevant statistics and to take stern measures to fight this problem in schools and colleges.
