www.noragging.com] [ToI] A whole new world

[http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Cities/City_Supplements/Ahmedabad_Times/A_whole_new_world/articleshow/2161940.cms]

30 Jun, 2007 l 0000 hrs ISTlTUSHAR DUTT /TIMES NEWS NETWORK


Fresh. New. Exciting. The fuchchas across campuses are revelling in their new found freedom. AT catches their mood...

Welcome to masti ki pathshala! Homework, uniform and tiffin boxes are a thing of the past. It's time to revel in break-free days. And as they say, nothing tastes like freedom. That's college life. After struggling for months for the HSC Board examination, corridors in colleges certainly look inviting. And not to talk about sharing a cup of tea with friends in canteen.

It's a free world...

Pressure is a word that will not figure in the vocabulary of freshers. At least for some time. It's time for some 'chill-pill' . As says Renish Sanghavi, a student of HL BBA college , "In school, we had too many restrictions. It's a different feeling to be in college. We are like free birds and I am enjoying it." But not all think so highly of freedom. For some, it's unexciting. As Karima Kabani, a student of HL College of Commerce feels, "School is all about rules and regulations and it used to give us a thrill to break those rules. That element of excitement is missing in college life. There is no charm of bunking classes and reaching late."

Ragging.....

The Supreme Court has banned ragging in educational institu tes. But the fear is still there in the minds of freshers. "I was scared at first because I thought my seniors would rag me," says Shibani Shah, a student of St Xavier's college. Were the seniors too tough on them? "No," says Shibani. "Actually our batch got a warm welcome from our seniors," she adds. Interestingly , some fuchchas would really love to have a feel of mild ragging . And the reason - "It gives us a chance to know our seniors. And if the ragging is not too serious, then it is the best way to interact with seniors," says Hetarth Joshi, a student of NR BBA college. Though many youngsters think of having a healthy interaction with seniors, there are a few who dream beyond that. Aditya Shah, a student of HL BBA, mischievously says, "Interaction is all fine. But given a chance, I would like to flirt a bit with my seniors."

Style and m ore style...

Uniforms? The dreary days are over. It's time to wear your attitude on the sleeves. That seems to be latest mantra in college campuses. The Gen-X believes in making it in style. Be it a new bike, denims, caps, capris or a latest cellphone, they have it all. "First impression lasts long. I just don't want to take any chances," says Jhanvi Thakkar, a student of HA college.

And if you are thinking it's only clothes that are ruling the campuses , then you are wrong. It's tech time and that's the cool way to bond with your friends. "These days, technology helps in making new friends. Earlier the trend was to share notes with classmates to make friends, but now it has been replaced by ringtones and wallpapers," adds Jhanvi.

And life in new-age campuses is certainly exciting.

www.noragging.com] [SriLanka] Stop murde...

[http://www.sundayobserver.lk/2007/07/01/main_Letters.asp]


Sri Lanka may be the only country where ragging is used to murder people, particularly University students and school children. In addition to murder there have been a large number of cases of causing deformities, torture, trauma and untold pain of mind.

This wickedness, inhuman behaviour and villainy, resorted to by some psychologically deranged University students, has now spread to schools, armed forces, training colleges, technical institutions, religious institutions and generally everywhere in Sri Lanka. Not only young men and women but even some clergy, unfortunately, resort to this 'crime'. Ragging started years ago, as a jolly good way of freshers and seniors comin g to know each other where both parties enjoyed the fun.

This came to Sri Lanka from England. In the Sinhala and Tamil traditional educational system there was nothing other than mutual concern, respect and kindness between the novice, the veterans and the teachers. Today the name ragging is used for a bastardly system of abuse and torture.

Not all seniors at the University do go out for ragging and some are positively against this mean practice. The compulsive "raggers" are definitely mentally deranged, dangerous "criminals in students' clothing" and they rag for following reasons.

1. Subconsious desire to murder: Many consider the newcomers as potential competitiors in the job market and they have a latent desire to kill them and this desire results in causing potentially fatal harm.

2. Sexual satisfaction: Some derive sadistic sexual pleas ure out of making freshers undress and perform unnatural sex acts and seeing them cry, writhe and shiver with fear and pain. There has been instances of suicide of innocent students after getting sexually abused.

3. Inferiority complex: There are mad students who have a low opinion of themselves due to physical unattractiveness, lack of wealth and or lack of knowledge of etiquette and other things necessary to be members of the society that they want to get into. These people are in a state of fury against the human race and are dangerously anti-social. They will kill, maim or torture anybody to derive some satisfaction of being able to exercise power.

4. To force freshers to join their cliques through fear: These gangs torture newcomers to subdue them and force them to join their cliques as "slaves." This is the method used by terrorists, underworld gangsters and madmen like Idi Amin.

5. To take revenge for the torture they had suffered from their seniors.

6. To extort money and to force victims to provide other favours.

As a result of this inhuman torture system some have died, some have got crippled and many have got sexually impotent. The vast majority of the victims have got permanent psychological scars and some of them, in turn, become criminal "raggers" who get some consolation by inflicting pain on their innocent juniors. In fact, this is a national disaster, an epidemic, a criminal waste of resources, life and a major cause of deterioration of the values and peace in this lovely land.

The philosophy behind criminal ragging is "Might is Right" i.e., the stronger have a right to abuse the weaker. This is the basis of imperialism and slavery. When this kind of thinking is inculcated in people, they tend to use it wherever they go, for example, as teachers, government servants or professionals.

Signs of this can be seen at many places where some graduates work, though the majority do not suffer from the shock that long. Now is the time to free the country from this menace.

The people who must lead this good work are none other than the present seniors in the Universities. All those who are against this dastardly crime that goes under the misnomer "ragging" - religious bodies, humanitarian organisations, political parties and decent individuals should get together and stand up NOW, before more torture and murder will take place with the new batches of innocent students getting into the Universities this year.

We must eradicate this loathsome, brutish practice that goes against our culture and values, and ruins the country silently, once and for all. This Poson period is perhaps the most suitable time for it.

Sena B. Buddhadasa, Colombo 4.

Founder: Harsh Agarwal, Varun Aggarwal, Mohit Garg, Rajiv Ram
Type: Research and Advocacy
Founded: 2001
Headquarters: New Delhi
Key people: Harsh Agarwal, Varun Aggarwal, Mohit Garg
Area served: India
Focus: 	Ragging, Bullying, Hazing in Educational Institutions

Website: www.noragging.com

The Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (CURE) is a voluntary, non-profit NGO in India, dedicated
to the elimination of ragging in India.
Contents

    * 1 HISTORY
    * 2 GOALS AND RESEARCH
    * 3 REFERENCES

HISTORY

CURE began in July 2001,[1] in Delhi, and has grown to a membership of several hundreds, mostly students.

In February 2007, CURE reported to the Supreme Court appointed Raghavan committee on ways to prevent
ragging in Indian universities,[1] highlighting the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse in the name
of ragging.[2] CURE also highlighted institutional unwillingness to acknowledge ragging,[3] citing
loss of reputation as their reason.

GOALS AND RESEARCH

CURE's stated goals are to create awareness about ragging and its ill-effects, provide alternate means of
interaction to Indian students and censure those involved in ragging. Their research points to ragging
as not being "harmless fun",[4] but the cause of 25 suicides in 7 years[3]

Ashok Das, Hindustan Times
Hyderabad, July 05, 2007


It’s that time of the year when professional colleges open after vacation and along with that comes the menace of ragging. While laws have been enacted to make ragging a punishable offence, few get convicted because the authorities as well as the community still take lenient view of the problem.

However, this time before colleges open, a stern message has been sent across to perpetrators of ragging in Andhra Pradesh. A court in Kurnool, the former capital of Andhra Pradesh,have sentenced three students of Kurnool Medical College for ragging their juniors.

Principal junior civil judge V Krishna Murthy on Wednesday sentenced N Srinivas, CP Muralikrishna Reddy and A Sudhir Kumar Reddy, the three senior students to undergo jail-term for a year and pay a fine of Rs 5,000 each.

They had summoned three first year students to their hostel room on August 30 last year and made them to strip, in the name of ragging. Later they took the pictures of the stripped students using their cell phone cameras.

This is the first case of conviction in a ragging case in the state.

3 Jul 2007, 0035 hrs IST,PALLAVI PASRICHA ,Epaper

Delhi may not be one the most friendliest of places for young women, yet it's the most favoured destination when it comes to getting a seat in the Delhi University.
Delhi is an unsafe city for women but that does not deter girls from other towns to come and study there, in fact if you go by numbers Delhi has now emerged as the education capital for women.

In arts and science undergraduate courses, girls and boys are equal. Nearly 43 per cent of all girls in the age group of 18 to 24 years in Delhi are studying in higher education institutions. This puts them ahead of boys with an enrolment ratio of just 33 per cent.
For the whole country, the enrolment ratio in higher education is just 8 per cent for girls. The reason for this is that many girls from smaller towns come to Delhi to study in graduate and post-graduate courses.

But don't these girls feel unsafe when they come to Delhi, where the crime rate is high, a city that is unsafe for single women and as many as 600 rape cases were reported in 2006. So aren't the outstation girls scared, what are their biggest concerns and fears? Let's find out.

Who cares if Delhi is unsafe?

Even though these girls have studied in small towns they want to let their hair down and enjoy when they come to a city like D elhi.
Ankita Das from Assam says, "DU is the best university in the country that's why I want to study here at any cost. I know Delhi is not a very safe city but who cares, we can't stop living our life, all we can do is be careful." She adds that she's not looking forward to her stay in Delhi because she'll miss her hometown, but has her cousins to keep her company.
DU - which is considered the best university in the country, brings these girls to the city. They choose it over places like Mumbai and Kolkata because of the university name.

Anjalina Bhatnagar from Dehradun, who was busy preparing for her Maths (Hons) interview at St Stephen's College says, "I am looking forward to staying in Delhi, college life is all about fun and I cannot miss out on that. I know it's unsafe going out at night so I won't go, why take a risk when we know the crime rate is so high h ere."
Some come here to bury their nose in books and study hard while others can't miss out on any fun. Shweta Mishra from Dhanbad, who got into LSR in the first cut off list in History (Hons) says, "Delhi is a cosmopolitan city, not only do you get to meet people from different walks of life but also from other nationalities. It's good fun."

Their biggest concerns

Being in a new city brings along with it a host of worries - some are apprehensive about hostel life while others get nervous about ragging. But none of them are bothered about Delhi being an unsafe city for women. Says Anjalina, "I am worried about how the people here will be, I have heard that you can never trust anyone in a place like this - you never know what attitude they might have. That's why I will be on guard and a bit reserved initially ."
If she thinks this way, Ankita dreads the thought of ragging. She says, "I am petrified of ragging, I don't know what they will ask me to do. And since I will be staying in the hostel, I really hope I'm not in for any bad ragging. I've heard horror tales of what goes on inside these hostels and I don't want to face anything like that."

Many of these girls did not have a tough time convincing their parents Ankur Mitra to let them come and study in Delhi.

Akshaya Shah who's from Meerut says, "I have relatives and friends here, so my folks were cool about it. The best part is that I won't have to stay with my relatives and can chill in a hostel." These girls are not at all worried about where they will stay or how they will manage.
Arushi Sharma from West Bengal who's here with her cousin says, "We will have to look for a PG because we won't be able to get into any of the hostels. But we look forward to it, it's a bit unsafe as compared to a hostel but we don't have any other option."

So whether the city is safe or unsafe, it doesn't matter to these students who are here to enjoy life and be a part of one of the best universities in this country.

[http://www.telegraphindia.com/1070702/asp/calcutta/story_8001208.asp]


A STAFF REPORTER

Anti-ragging activists chose the venue of a counselling session on Sunday to campaign against the campus menace.

Around 20 members of No Ragging Foundation gathered at Sarat Sadan, Howrah, where a counselling session was under way for allotment of seats among students who have cracked the All India Engineering Entrance Examination.

Forum members — students of engineering and medical colleges and pass-outs — explained to the candidates and their parents the steps to tackle ragging.

The coordinator of the forum, Kushal Banerjee, a junior doctor at Sambhunath Pandit Hospital, said: “A student who has been subjected to physical or mental torture in the name of ragging can contact us on www.no2ragging.com. We will soon start counselling sessions for victims of ragging and arrange for their treatment.”

While parents were seen talking enthusiastically with forum members, some of the candidates expressed the fear that they might get marked by seniors.

The candidates wanted to know whether the forum members would be by their side if they are ragged badly and how to approach the forum during an emergency.

“It’s time the parents are united against torture in the name of ragging,” said Amit Ghosh, from Nagerbazar, the father of a candidate. Saikat Roy, an electronic engineer who accompanied his sister to the counselling, said: “Those who inflict torture on juniors should be treated on a par with criminals.”

Srijani Mitra, an activist of the forum that has over 300 members, said more than 1,000 parents collected leaflets detailing ways to fight ragging.

 Hai members,

It's nice to know that at least but not at last, some of the evil
perpetrators have been punished. Such measures will sow confidence
among fresher of coming years and such judgments should be taken as

Let's all together welcome this verdict and wish the judiciary for
