3-4 days before, I read in a newspaper that a student named Devendra jumped in front of the train as he was being tortured by his seniors during ragging. The dead body was found on Railway Tracks in Hyderabad. The family’s financial condition is also not so good. Devendra’s elder brother Madhusudan himself went to his brother’s college to share his words with Devendra’s seniors. The family got another shock when College Management called the suicide-case, as of Mental depression.
Prior to this in March, a medical student’s dead body was found in Himachal Pradesh due to being badly beaten by his seniors, again during ragging. In the same month, a girl tried to commit suicide in Andhra Pradesh due to being forced by her seniors to dance nude.
These are only some examples. Due to ragging, many students lose their career, their lives. So shouldn’t this practice be altogether banned. I know that Supreme Court is trying its best to stop this inhuman practice. But shouldn’t something harsh be done to completely eliminate this evil that snatches brothers from their sisters, sons from their mothers.
Some people comment that ragging is an important college game. But in my views, if game is played according to some pre-defined rules then only it’s a game and that too filled with fun. We all know that what is happening with Indian students in Australia – I think it is not a game. That’s a part of ragging. So if game breaks all the rules then its not a game, it’s a war, I say. If game like ragging forces guys to suicide then such a life-taking should game be avoided altogether.
What you people say on ragging.
