Straight Angle™: Anna University- True to its name!
Thursday, August 18, 2005
Anna University in Tamilnadu has started behaving true to its name- as a big brother...Yesterday, as I sat half-watching the news(unfortunately Sun News..that's the news that would be available when I reach home from office- if I need some TN News), there was a news item that attracted my attention so much that I dropped the book I was reading and started listening to that.
It went on like this: "Anna university had banned students from dancing for film songs in the cultural programs conducted by the colleges"....while the reasonableness of the ban is in itself a matter of ridicule, the reasons given for the ban was outright illogical.
Picture this: The VC of a renowned university telling the press crew that, after enforcing restrictions on the use of cell-phones[this- after the DPS saga, where the 11th standard girl n a guy were caught in the act, (rather the act was caught by the guy and sold over the net)]....there are now restrictions on wearing Jeans/sleeveless shirts, cinemas, bunking(ofcourse there was always this stuff of "attendance"...I hate it to the core) and to top it all for students dancing for cinema songs....
The reasons he gives:(not in the order of priority!)
Dont a guy/gal in his/her 19 years of life learned enough to know which is decent and which one not, to do in public and even if they dont see it as indecent, then I think that shows that the society is changing....to have your view enforced upon students like this, would only lead to the dark ages again...
To ban Jeans and Tee's- this is absurd!...If institutes like these fail to teach tolerance and Liberalism, then who will?...If these guys go out to any of the western countries, can they come out of their shell?..leave the western countries, if these guys go out to Mumbai even, they would be overwhelmed by the environment....We had already been betrayed in the politics of language, now, this is betrayal in life-style too!!..
If I like to wear, Jeans, let me wear it...If you fear that would lead to problems, then you need to gaurd against the criminals, not ask me not to wear...it's like asking me to commit suicide, because, you fear someone will kill me...
Soon, Chennai colleges will be another Taliban ruled ground!
