on the state government over the use of pellet guns by forces to control mob saying the authorities cannot “justify” their action and make people disabled just because they are angry and protest A division bench of the court asked the government to review the use of pellet guns which has proven to be lethal “Can’t you explore other methods using water using teargas shell or whatever you have instead of this (pellets) because now by experience it has proven to be lethal” the court told the government “These are your own people They have anger They are protesting (It) doesn’t mean they should be rendered disable” The bench comprising Chief Justice N Paul Vasanthakumar and Justice Muzzafar Hussain Attar said that maximum people have suffered injuries in eye and vital parts of their body “What we understand is that this pellet is a round ball loaded with lead Eye is primarily a water ball When it (pellet) penetrates and hits it damage is done” the bench said during hearing of a Public Interest Litigation The court asked the government to file a response on the usage of pellet guns and ensure the guns are only used by trained persons “What one understands is that the people who are using these shotguns or pellet guns are not trained how to use them” the bench observed When the government counsel said that there were injuries suffered by armed forces as well Justice Attar said they have not suffered these types of injuries “You have not shown one such injury in eye or vital parts of body” he said Watch Video: What’s making news The bench said the court does not approve the usage of the pellet guns but cannot ban it because of an earlier order where they had dismissed a petition seeking ban on pellet guns saying “the petition has been filed with oblique motive” “Don’t rely upon earlier judgments Your concern is human life We have to go by that judgment (but) precious is human life Circumstances change and in changing circumstances you can have further directions” the court said when the government counsels drew attention towards the earlier order “Please don’t bank upon that Don’t justify the action” For all the latest India News download Indian

university (Representational photo) Top News As yet another round of board examinations comes to a close and another generation heads to university it is perhaps wise for schools and universities to reflect on how prepared the average school-leaver is for university and equally important how prepared is the university for the school-leaver P Chidambaram in an article in The Indian Express (IE February 27) has opined “A university is not a mere collection of buildings It is also not a collection of colleges or centres of research It is not constituted solely for the purpose of conferring degrees upon the young men and women who enter its portals study subjects and pass examinations It is a space designed to nurture knowledge and freedom and beckon the children of the world to take from and give unto the reservoir of knowledge and freedom” If this is indeed so how prepared are our school-leavers to take on this new ecosystem The first element in this ecosystem is what one could broadly define as the intellectual/academic expectations of a university A good university would look for students who are for the most part good “self-learners” critical thinkers can think laterally and ask questions But what are we doing in our schools today Whereas education should be a liberating experience that allows the mind to drink deeply at diverse fountains be it music or math we have created a system that is obsessed with certification through examinations where percentages and the ability to clear entrance tests are the criteria for success To do this requires children to be “boxed” in from virtually class 9 onwards into the pigeon holes of science commerce or for the “lesser gifted” humanities The problem is further compounded by thrusting the young mind into the soul-destroying world of private tuitions Given this scenario — of being trapped in a soul-less classroom and tuition centre obsessed with “teaching for the test” and then being catapulted to university — what chance does the young mind have to grow to ponder on the mysteries and perhaps injustices of the universe or as the poet said to just “stop and stare” And it is not as if even within the limitations of our system it is impossible to imbue our students with the skills that universities and in fact adult life itself require All it needs is an imaginative motivated teacher backed by an equally imaginative and perhaps daring principal Alas for reasons all too often catalogued the school-teaching profession itself has been seriously emasculated As for “daring” heads most heads today have been reduced to managers rather than leaders whose main job is to ensure that the cash tills keep rolling The problem is exacerbated by the systematic manner in which we have steadily denigrated the study of the humanities Since school education is viewed mainly as a means of securing a lucrative job in either engineering medicine or commerce the humanities are viewed as an option only for those not “good enough” for the other streams The fact that the humanities are generally poorly taught in most schools (who would want to teach a subject with no tuition market) does not help the cause Yet it is a well-known fact that the “liberal arts” programme or its equivalent has been the foundation on which some of the best universities in the world have built their reputation And indeed it has been so since the Renaissance A study of the humanities fosters a deeper understanding of the world we live in and enhances feelings of mutual respect empathy and tolerance A lot is being said these days about the shrinking space for debate What is shrinking is not the space — it is our hearts and minds So what we succeed in churning out from our schools is a young mind thoroughly “pressure cooked” with liberal doses of examinations and tuitions looking at an uncertain future and desperately gasping for freedom Are we surprised when these impressionable and often confused young minds fall prey to the machinations of our politicians who stalk our universities Students at the better-known universities all over the world also participate in political debate and discussion and indeed go on to become eminent political leaders But very rarely does one see the kind of “gang war” that one sees on our campuses The other great challenge facing a young school-leaver is what I would call the “emotional” turmoil that one faces at university The school is a highly structured environment A university is not A school is by and large quite homogeneous in its socio-cultural mix of students A university is not For the young person leaving the cocoon of a school university can therefore initially be a very lonely alienating experience And how prepared are universities to hand-hold this bewildered young person The very fact that most universities hand over this critical area of responsibility to a warden tells us what their priorities are Wardens by definition belong to jails or wildlife reserves Teaching faculty very rarely have either the time or inclination to take on the challenges that confront the student At most universities young people have to negotiate all the minefields on their own And the sad fact is that many do not The recent spate of suicides and student unrest in universities are only a symptom of this huge hiatus that exists in our system Tagore the visionary possibly had a premonition of this pitiable state of education when he wrote those iconic lines “Where the mind is without fear” And unless we wake up to this reality we will like the famous American singer Don Mclean be left lamenting: And now I understand/What you tried to say to me/How you suffered for your sanity/How you tried to set them free/They would not listen/They are not listening still/Perhaps they never will The writer is Director student development and welfare OP Jindal Global University For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
