The Mumbai University has managed to spread terror in our hearts time and again. It manages to come up with new rules when we are just getting acquainted with another new one. I think they are only here to make a living hell out of a student’s life.
With all the ‘necessary’ and ‘relevant’ amendments and changes, the University came up with an innovative idea to compel students to attend lectures. I am not saying attending lectures is a burden but with this rule, it is made to seem that way. It is one of the crass ways to bully students into classes out of compulsion and not out of interest.
So a person would be attending lectures not because he is interested, not because he wants to learn something new but only because he wants to complete the quota of 75%of his attendance.
In our country, one can vote when he is 18, which implies that he is capable of choosing a government for the country. He can decide on the future of the country. But when it comes to his education, the power of decision is snatched away from him.
Let the decision be in the hands of the students if he wants to attend class. If he does not, he will surely face consequences by failing in the particular subject.
But this rule also suggests that no matter what, you have to be in class. Even if you are unwell or whatsoever. It’s high time the University got back on it’s dictatorship…
