I can’t help linking to this story which is only a couple of hours old as I write. Apparently Jammu University is closed “indefinitely” after students ran amok, demanding they be allowed to answer “any question” they like in the examinations.
This has to rank right up there among news stories that pose more questions than they answer. Indefinitely – really?! Any question – what?
Because Indians are news junkies in a way that people in other countries are not, the media here has a terrible habit of failing to give the background to a story and leaving things like acronyms un-deciphered, assuming that everyone knows them (which I suppose, apart from me, they probably do): “The DGR-CSM was charge-sheeted for his role in the Andalucia incident last Friday after giving evidence to the HPNTWOS.” And so forth. Anyway, hopefully someone else will write about this Jammu Uni incident soon, and I’ll get some clue what’s going on.
