the country, students at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) will now be paying the highest hostel fees.
You know why !
They don't want common people not to read in #JNU which teaches the students to question the #Government !
The enemy will not perish of himself. Neither will the Chinese reactionaries nor the aggressive forces of U.S. imperialism in China step down from the stage of history of their own accord.- Mao Zedong, “Carry the Revolution Through to the End” (December 30, 1948)
Being an armed forces officer from the National Defence Academy, my graduation degree of BSc PCM was given by JNU. So, without having ever studied there, I am an alumnus of this prestigious University and damned proud of it. I support the striking #JNUFreeforAll students cause.
It is striking that the Indian business media's heart bleeds for a telecom MNC whose problems are largely its own making. It then uses the threat of evaporating foreign investment to twist the government's hand. Clearly, Too Big To Fail is not confined to banking!
JNU is on the verge of becoming a thing again.
Conveniently, it's around the same time in Modi's second term as it was in his first term.
The bhakt driven fervour is building up against a bunch of students who will be demonized and the whole nation will be distracted from the government's failures.
By 2030, demand for fresh water will exceed supply by an estimated 40%. Without strong action, warns @Jayati1609@twitter.com of @JNU_IN@twitter.com, this could become a source of major conflicts http://bit.ly/2Qei632
This is to all the students of the Jawaharlal Nehru University. And all of you who are standing strong with the #jnuprotest
You have stood for the founding principles and vision of the University.
Gandhiji's death was "accidental".
Just as Judge Loya's was.
Just as Gauri Lankesh's was.
Just as Dabholkar's was.
Just as Pansare's was.
True. The Sangh's enemies tend to suffer accidents.
This is what today's kids are being taught in school.
I'm a lawyer. I feel most competent in constitutional law. This means I'm constantly recovering from the trauma of being alive in these times.
In my doctoral work, I'm trying to understand constitutional claims outside courts - or the gulf between the Constitution of India & the constitution of India.
I'm currently teaching the law & science module to science undergrads, developing an RPG for children to work the Constitution democratically, and writing writing writing.
