Well, well, well,.. so JD Women's College also put on a slogan shouting, placard waving edition of 'let's protest like everyone else'.
Students of JD Women’s College formed a human chain on April 22 to protest against the incident of the rape of a five-year old girl in Delhi. As they stood outside their institution, each student held placards with messages like “Don’t kill the innocence of a child “and “let buds bloom”.
As usual, there were only platitudes mouthed. One such 'student' who really had nothing new to say was quoted by a local Patna paper:
“I think both the state and the Union governments are answerable for being unable to prevent such incidents from occurring,” said Puja Kumari, a BA first- year student. “Why have the law-enforcement agencies not been able to prevent such incidents?”
Puja Kumari, what should the state government do put a policemen inside each and every house? You should first have the guts to address these issues of child abuse as they take place in your own home, Puja jee. Like try to tell your brothers not to hang around the P&M Mall checking out the drool maaal'.
Future Teachers finish their course
On April 25, MEd and BEd students of St Xavier’s College of Education put up a cultural programme for the batch passing out.
A documentary on the batch, Golden Memories, set the nostalgic tone for the show, which began with a prayer service.
The farewell song – “Nagma hain, shikwe hain…” – was the main attraction of the show; the farewell dance was also popular. Principal Father Thomas Perumalil, SJ, told the students to deliver their best after the graduate.
“You should try to understand the emotion of every student in your class. Stick to your values and work towards creating a just society.”
H'm high hopes... he has high hopes....
