What a week for deemed universities. Starting with the AICTE asking the universities to get accreditation for their courses, rumors flew that the universities could only award BSc and not BE degrees. By this time, word had also got around that HCL had asked Sathyabama graduates to resign due to this. Violence erupted at SRM campus with students going on a rampage. Following this, SRM students entered Sathyabama University the next day, and a repeat performance ensued. As an ex student reacted with glee to find that the directors room had been ransacked and the "Squad" members systematically beaten up. Yet to get the status on the Mercedes cars on campus, but would be overjoyed if at least one got "dented" in the ruckus. The news was all the more sweeter when we heard that one particulary nasty piece of work, Sundar (who we had suspected of being a paedophile) had his hand AND leg broken. Universities like this should not be allowed to play around with students career's and in that aspect sathyabama is the worst. By trying to supress students behaviour and taking no responsibility whatsoever, what happened was a natural catharsis. The present directors (one of whom is JPR's daughter and the other who happened to be there because he knocked her up in college) are uncultered boors. Cavemen who would be better of in some political party rather in academic strata. The SFI stand on deemed university derognition should have come about long back. You cannot allow these second rate university to stuff classrooms with herds of second rate students, who are only there becoz their parents had a ton of cash. It is high time that we ensure universities of international repute. Quality education cannot be limited to the IIT's. And to do that we need to not only abolish these deemed universities, but get rid of their management - political goondas in academicians robes. Get rid of these morons and fill up the vacancies with EDUCATED men. And the next thing would be to abolish ALL current entry examinations, procedures and pass a bill for 100% reservation - reservation for the meritorious. This is the only way we could ever hope to retain the deserving than drive them out to other countries.
