Etc. etc. etc. etc.

Well these where some very common and flashing news till some days ago but now the news changed to be……

Students rusticated form college for ragging in college….where as they claim to just have asked to give an intro……..

Students debarred from any education for years for ragging………where they say that the juniors had misbehaved them...

Now what is all this. Just a form of news, or just a way to time pass in the collage or is it the latest way of in campus entertainment?

Any thing excess is bad. Even, if something is too sweet it gives a bitter sensation. This is what has happened to the environment in the educational institutes in India. There was a time when ragging was termed to be a very good, as it helped a lot to improve one's smartness, attitude, respect to seniors, and it used to be a very good way of removing one's fear towards facing problems and speaking in a gathering.

But what happened now?

The same is banned as many of the students were afraid of going to collage just because they had to face ragging and had a fear of being insulted in front of other friends. Why? were they lacking in confidence? No, as they knew seniors can go to the extent of exploiting them sexually. Many cases have been filed where students have been forced to do many unsocial acts. In many places the students had to return crying to their house just because some senior’s hyper bad behavior during ragging. So the Indian government termed ragging as a punishable offense.

Did this actually work?

Well I don’t think so. As with this the juniors in the college have been provided with some extraordinary powers and there is a special anti-ragging squad in nearly all colleges and universities. This has resulted in a even worse situation. Now days in many places affidavit is being taken from students stating that they wont rag their juniors, so now the juniors are directly going to the seniors and misbehaving them with their sentence ending with “you must have given an affidavit so don’t dare to reply me”. If not this, at least in all colleges the juniors are completely distanced from their seniors, due to which they never are able to build a bond with there seniors and miss the chance to gain all the experience he/she could have gained.

Do you think this is right?
Is the Indian government taking the right step?
Can’t it actually be stopped in college level?

Well we all know the answer. If the seniors use their power correctly and with that teach the juniors how and what is a professional life it can be solved.
And this is not all the juniors have to also support them as it is for their betterment and they get to learn a lot.

Just, if everyone uses his/her power in a right manner there wont be any problem.

Well this is what I feel but what do u feel????????
