End ragging

With the death of Navarasu in November 1996, the only son of a former vice-chancellor of Madurai Kamaraj University in a brutal ragging incident in the Annamalai University Medical College Hostel and the rise of sympathy and sky-high waves of anger, we all hoped that the menace would come to an end. But it did not stop.

Laws were enacted and enforced to prevent ragging in institutions of higher education.

After the intervention of the Supreme Court and appointment of the Raghavan Committee to monitor measures to stop ragging, it had come down appreciably.

It is distressing to see now and then the ugly head of ragging, as stray cases in some parts.

Salem CSI Polytechnic College Principal says that he has put up a warning on the notice board and meets the 2nd year and 3rd year students, warning them about the dire consequences to those who may intend to indulge in ragging at the commencement of every academic year.

Just as charity begins at home, humanity also should begin at home, to put an end to ragging forever.

T.N. Arthanari,

Salem.

TTD programmes

A new religious channel started by the Tirumala Thirupathi Devasthanam by name TTD channel is indeed a great service. However, all the programmes are only in Telugu.

The channel can telecast programmes in Tamil, Kanada and Malayalam too as a chunk of devotees hail from these areas.
