I can't believe management falls back against such hooliganism. I have seen several freshers living so humble when they were studying they were used to pay rent to their "relatives" for their self-esteem.
Definitely it's not the education they are getting in JNU with such a sycophant environment.
I just found the current hostel charges per month(In Rupees)
So all these years they were enjoying all the facilities for at a price of a peanut however 300 Rs. a month charge is not acceptable for them in the Posh area of Delhi.
If I remember correctly then I used to pay 3000 Rs. of one-semester* charge for Hostel way back 12 years before and that location/college was 100 KM away from one of the Metro City!
*500 per month.
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
A room for 10/- is not subsidy. Its equivalent to free.
I saw people/students talking to news channels. And they are wearing wild-craft bags and other nice clothing. Its hypocrisy. And please keep in mind that it's the taxpayers money which is going into these subsidies and it is better to keep the subsidies to minimum
What do you mean by it
As I said, if they get loans at least they will have the burden to repay them back. And the period of stay also needs to be limited. If the course is for 3 years, there is no point in allowing a student for more than 5 years (under normal circumstances).
With no strings attached we are making them duds and useless and doing more harm to them.
IITs and IIMs have much more strict rules and higher fees. So I am thinking why not JNU
I can digest Crap movie only from one industry and so I stick to Tamil
Haha, there's truth to that statement. The only reason I was following Tamil movies was for Vadivelu, and I've completely stopped since he disappeared. I mostly watch Hollywood movies these days, but there's a ton of crap to be had there as well (the PC nonsense in hollywood these days is nauseating).
In every country many incidents happen time to time but nation or people just take it is like its "normal" and there is indifference from society.
Nirbaya Case shook up the nation and laws were amended.
In Tamil Nadu, A young girl was killed in road due to the political banner hitting her while driving which forced Actors, Political parties to stop that banner and hoarding culture.
This time during Diwali, Whole of state was consumed on the plight of 2 years old who fell on the unused open bore. With continuous 75+ hours of live coverage with numerous rescue attempts failing, he was declared dead and his body retrieved. RIP Surjith
This incident will hopefully tilt the scale and this incidents of Kids falling in Bore well will come to end.
Too much of good is bad,mix some evil in it
Its a very tragic accident. Its even unimaginable to think how that kid endured those hours. The need of the hour is to provide (or develop if not there already) state of art equipment to the rescue personnel to handle situations like these.
Like you said, if this incidents triggers movement in that direction then its well and good
The problem is that regulations are nearly non-existent in this industry, and there neither any accountability. A regulatory framework has to be setup for this. If a borewell has been dug, then:
It must then be the borewell company's responsibility to ensure that pipes are laid, and the well is sealed permanently.
If the well is deemed unworthy, the borewell company still seals it permanently with or without (at the discretion of whomever is paying for the project) having laid the pipes. In other words, laying pipes is optional, but the well must be sealed nevertheless!
Heavy penalties must be levied, and criminal cases be lodged in cases where the protocols are not followed. The consumer for whom the borewell was dug, and the corporation that dug the borewell, must both be penalised.
The sealed well must be inspected by an independent third-party to ensure that everyone has done their job well, and must issue a fit-for-use certificate after the inspection, and presents pictures of the sealed well to the governing authority to be filed as evidence.
Right now though, one could commission a borwell company and dig like 7 holes in their backyard and leave them open. That's the crux of the problem.
