There is a difference between good students and class toppers. Most class toppers conform to the established rules. Good students examine established rules before conforming to them.

The Education Commission (1964-66) recommended that at least 6% of GDP should be spent on education to make a recognizable growth rate in education.

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)

What is happening at JNU is an othering of the marginalized. A UC project which wants to keep the poor & marginalized, mostly Dalits, out of education, eternally poor. Not surprising the brahmin-bania BJP is behind it. Such contempt for our kids is astounding

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.

The only hope in Indian democracy is this. I think protests should be taught as a part of the curriculum in Indian schools and universities.

Protests are part of democracy, if you don't have them then you get authoritarian regimes.

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.
