The Showdown of Students

The vice chancellor of the Delhi University has been facing opposition long since he took his post. But his recent, FYUP, has stirred mix reactions amongst the students and has aroused vast multitude of debates. While some students continue to protest outside the minister’s houses, the others have begun to rejoice in new perception.

So, after all the labor of Delhi University’s decision makers, is it justified?

Organizations like AISA stand firm at their claim that the new- four- year program is nothing but plagiarism. Shunning it as an imperial concept, the association feels that mandatory foundation courses including mathematics would be a disadvantage upon the differently abled and SC/ST students.

However the vice chancellor, Prof. Dinesh Singh clarifies his decision on a different level. In his interview with a national daily, he states that the new program would increase the career level and job opportunities for his students. “No American degree is close to what we offer” says he. “Multiple exit programs have only made us flexible.”

With admissions, so close at hand, the question still hangs in the court. After so much dissatisfaction in the air, it would not be a surprise to find out that much of DU’s teachers and related staff tops the league of protestors.

Meanwhile the court, continue to ask why the university seems in haste for their new experiment. The supporters on the other hand, states that the decision was well considered through regular meetings of student congress and teachers where the plans were as efficiently discussed as it happened with the Indian constitution. According to a source, the plan came to being, only after a document was signed by a body of students to motivate the approval of four year plan.

Apart from FYUP, this year also saw cancellation of the two year old CATE exam (entrance test for BA Eng (Hons.). While newspapers show that students are much relieved in this change, the other side is but yet to be revealed. Entrance exams suffice the education business in their own way. And when, one is cancelled at such a short and unclear notice, there is a possibility of the situation to turn into bewildering crisis. It is not a new idea for coaching centers to earn money by guarantying the admission, offering highly paid tutors but of course at handsome amounts. After CATE being cancelled, the money stands in loop holes. But let us not forget, while it might be extravagance for some, but for others, it is much like a sentimental duty of parents who invest the hard work of their lives for the better future of their children.

Therefore, on a personal note, I believe the university must not keep its decisions in secrecy and it shall give a chance to its audience to digest such changes.

Lastly, a top newspaper also claims that DU doesn’t even have records for outside-state students and Hindi professors. Therefore in the OMR forms, you have to mention your original state. And what that is left of Hindi professors, no other news regarding it has been recorded. Perhaps there are much more that circulate being undistinguished from other rumors.

So you agree or not, embrace yourselves for the FYUP. Thus Let us wait, if the experiment unravels a success story or if it continues to harass confusion and complex. Only time can tell.

Or are you just shopping for the first impression at college? But it isn’t a Sharukh Khan’s Mai Hoon na..is it?
