* 1 HISTORY
* 2 GOALS AND RESEARCH
* 3 REFERENCES
CURE began in July 2001, 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, highlighting the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse in the name
of ragging. CURE also highlighted institutional unwillingness to acknowledge ragging, 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", but the cause of 25 suicides in 7 years
