URBAN-RURAL INDIA UP IN ARMS AGAINST MODI-SHAH POLICIES

A TOTAL SHUT DOWN OBSERVED ON JANUARY 8
Author: Amarjeet Kaur - Published 09-01-2020 15:47 GMT-0000
The unprecedented total shut down of the entire country — both urban and rural — on January 8, 2020 is really a historic one. If the RSS-controlled BJP government led by Narendra Modi still ignores the writing on the wall, it will be a big disaster for it as it will be digging its own grave by doing so. The entire country is up in arms against the communal, divisive and anti-people policies of the Modi government. It will be impossible to find any section of our population that is not hit and devastated by the policies of the government.

VIOLENCE IN EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS AND POLITICAL MYOPIA

STATE-DRIVEN MAJORITARIANISM HAS BRUTALISED STUDENTS
Author: Surajit Mahalanobis - Published 09-01-2020 11:14 GMT-0000
Two of the basic tenets of conflict resolution for peace are tolerance and negotiations. In Indian government educational institutions, these two are wantonly missing. Mind you, the conflicts generally are not given a voice in private or cushy institutions, where democracy does not exist, and the voices of discordant are nipped in the bud. At places, where it does exist, if one of the conflicting parties takes to non-violence (as did the JNUSU), the other/s would take up violent assertions of their presence to catch attention (as did the JNU VC-supported ABVP). The political expediency of tolerance and negotiations has been given a break. Jawaharlal Nehru University’s vice chancellor M Jagadish Kumar has adopted the second recourse, causing nationwide anguish across ideologies. What happened in the prestigious JNU is not a conflict of ideologies, but that of political muscle-flexing tinged with egotism, as the shameless cowardly undercover attacks on the hapless, peaceful agitators on January 5 this year amply demonstrate.
