In politics giving sops to electorates and launching populist schemes at the cost of public exchequer, particularly before the elections is a common feature but the government of Aam Admi Party in Delhi under the chief ministership of confrontationist Arvind Kejrival is steadily but gradually trying to launch such populist schemes for the benefit of the backward and down trodden sections of the society, despite the fact that elections of Delhi Assembly are still twenty eight months ahead, even later than the national elections of 2019.

As per the latest news, a policy have been prepared by the Delhi government giving high economic concessions/ facilities to the students of the SC and ST catagory of NCT of Delhi for private coaching in prestigious instititions or coaching centre for future career making in various fields. To start with this policy will be applicable for the first batch of 1000 students of the SC, ST catagory, hailing from the lowest ebb of the society.

As per the guideines the SC/ST students whose parents’ income would be below 2 lakhs annually, the government will bear the full fee expendidure while these who will come under the slab of 2 to 6 lakhs will have to bear the 25% expenditure of the fee where as the government would bear the rest 75 percent.

These concessions to the students of the unprivileged and economically deprived students of the SC, ST catagory will definitely benefit AAP to gain the support base of the dalits of the lowest ebb of the society in Delhi. The AAP chief Arvind Kejrival has earlier too granted reliefs to the Delhites in water, electricity, health and educational sector thus regaining the faith of Delhi populace, particularly those belonging to the lower middle class living in unauthorised colonies, Jhuggi Jhopri clusters and low and medium traders and government servants.

The minorities of Delhi also seem to be happy with him due to its secularist policies and pro minority stand. This has put tremendos dent on the traditional Congress vote bank while BJP claims of its vote bank still being intact.

Through such sops and concessions including passing of a bill for the regularisation of the services of 1500 adhoc n contractual teachers Arvind Kejrival is gradually trying to succed in making solid and credible inroads in the actual vote bank of Delhi i.e the middle, lower middle class and those at the lower and lowest ebb of the society.

    When the society fails in its moral activities or when its intellectuals ignore moral duty, activists will rise to counter them.

    Activists have become highly unpopular and have become the targets of a highly active middle class. It is hard being an activist, although it is a little easier being an intellectual. The activist is always in the middle of conflict while the intellectual is in the middle of the world of ideas and scholarship.

    Becoming an intellectual is a very long process and often relies on access to education as well as on various resources. A school student can be considered an activist but not an intellectual. Students can easily join marches, shout slogans and are free to write blogs. The opportunity to be an activist is easily available.

    Activist may or may not be a scholar. But what an activist does is far more important than the scholar because any action by them is most fundamentally a moral action. On the other hand, action of an intellectual is most often an epistemic action, which is an action that is concerned with information and knowledge.

    An activist acts on behalf of others, and with, others. It involves a sense of giving and giving-up something. While more ‘normal’ individuals in a society act in order to benefit themselves, activists often have to act against their own interests. Often their actions improve the well-being of others, more than that of the activists.

    When students go on a protest, they pick up an important skill — that of developing a moral sense, a sense of concern and respect for others. And this sense, is the most important quality of being an activist.

    Although some intellectuals have a really deep sense of the moral, but the history of intellectual labour has consistently separated the moral from the accumulation of knowledge. The best example of this is by removal of moral considerations from science and the creation of scientific knowledge.

    When the society fails in its moral activities or when its intellectuals ignore moral duty, activists will rise to counter them. When the moral temperature of a society decreases, as it on a global scale in recent times, activists will rise. If this is stopped from happening, the moral force of a society will deplete. It is only the activists who can ensure that the moral skills of a society do not vanish entirely. They give up their personal and material comforts for the larger values of dignity, respect and equality for a society. Activists and intellectuals are crucial to protect the society from two very great dangers — power and profit. Getting rid of them is to compromise the present as well as the future of our society.

    The political interference and pure politics of alleged favoritism in appointing head of the universities in several states despite their having the status of autonomy has resulted in much of the political interference in the campuses.

    As a result the head of the institutions or the Vice chancellors allegedly in order to serve the interests of their political masters or ideology sometimes become partisan and obstinate and while executing their duties commit blunders as the one happened in Banaras Hindu University where students, particularly the girls who were protesting against molestation and other genuine demands inside the university campus and in front of the Vice chancellor’s house democratically to seek justice were badly lathhi charged and thrashed by the police on the recommendation of the VC who allowed the police inside the campus.

    Several girls and boy students were physically roughed up, badly thrashed and subsequently injured for no major fault of theirs except demanding expeditious justice and punishment to the culprits. The police it is understood acted on the clear cut directions of the Vice Chancellor who allegedly happens to have the blessings of political masters of the state.

    This anti student action of BHU administration and the Vice Chancellor has been deplored all over the country particularly by the teaching, student and intellectual fraternity of the country. The role of the state police in this whole episode have been of hooligans inviting disgrace and condemnation nationally.

    This is not the first time that the prejudiced anti student role of Vice Chancellors and the police had been under suspicion for favoring their political masters and subjecting students fighting for democratic rights to physical assault and thrashing, even arbitrarily putting them behind bars thus ruining their academic future instead of treating them as their wards infusing in them a sense of discipline and academic responsibilities on amicable basis.

    In the case of Hyderabad, Jawahar lal Nehru and Jadhav Universities too students were subjected to physical thrashings and framing up of false cases against them. The murder of Dalit student leader of Hyderabad Central University and mysterious disappearance of a student of JNU DELHI are the incidents of stark reminders as to how the democratically protesting students for their constitutional rights meet their fateful tragic end.

    What makes the situation even more worse is the fact that on the arbitrary orders of the obstinate VC of BHU the male police was sent inside the campus and hostels to drag them out, physically assault and frame them in baseless, biased and fabricated police cases. This is outrightly absurd and amounts to open contravention of rules. It’s high time that political parties must give up interfering in and influencing the Universities autonomous status. WHAT DO YOU SAY FRIENDS?

    Since high school, I have been waiting to enter college. I always wanted to be a college student; a serious student who would decide what to be in his life. It wasn’t just my first day at college; it was the start of a journey. During my school days, I had a glimpse of college life from my elder brothers and sisters. I was most curiously waiting for the day when I would start my college life, thought that the college life would offer me a free life; here restrictions would be few and threat of teachers would be little. At last that day came. I entered the college with new hopes and aspirations. It was a day full of new experiences. I got into a new educational building, was exposed to a different style of learning and met new people.

    As soon as I entered the college campus, the high school atmosphere was over and a serious period of my life began. I did not use to change from high school to college, thus, was a little scared while entering the college premises and witnessed so many students whom I did not know. At first, I was lost and confused; I really did not know where to go. I had to ask around to figure out where the new students had to report. All the new students in the college seemed to be very happy and excited for their first day. Everyone was mingling, goofing around and was having a good time. I walked down the main walkway and was amazed at the size of the campus. Grass and trees surrounded it. People were studying sprawled on the grass with their books. I walked into a big hall with chairs, tables, and video games. People were eating, playing video games, and doing their homework. I soon discovered that it was the cafeteria. However, I told myself, “You just have to be brave”. I reached my first class much early so that I could get a seat close to the teacher to record the class and meet my classmates. The first thing that every teacher did on the first day was introducing themselves to the children and getting the introduction from the students, also asking them about their areas of interest. I noted down the time table of my class from the notice-board. I found that the method of teaching in colleges is very different from that in schools. I had some very strange experiences on the first day of my college. I was truly astonished to see students playing indoor games and listening to music in the middle of the lectures in the classrooms. There is no restriction on the uniform; you are free to wear whatever you want. I observed that the students were free in their movements. They can do things according to their choice. There are no time restrictions. A student can enter the college premises at any time and leave the college premises any time. Our seniors also came to interact with us. They told us many interesting things about the institution and their tremendous experiences in the college. I got a chance to get introduced to many new people, some of whom are my best friends now.

    I felt a new rhythm of life and returned home with a mixed sense of duty and liberty.

    THE CRY BABY

    As we all know exams are the biggest stress in one’s life, in fact it’s the biggest challenge a student agrees to face! But there are some students before an exam who are never satisfied with their preparation and act like a cry baby in front of everyone.

    One of the famous dialogue said by them is “YAAR KUCH NAHI PADA FAIL HO JAUNGA”. They are mostly the “TOPPER STUDENTS” who think every time they will fail but their result is the biggest shock for everyone!
