Treatment of college students.

My friend, Sanket Bhatt, IMd me on Facebook today,to send me the link to this group on Facebook.
When I saw the title, I thought it was just another stupid statement. But oh, it is so much more.
The FYBMM students of R.D.National College, Bandra, have filed a suit against the college,alleging harassment by the course co-ordinator, Shivani Mehta, who initially demanded Rs. 11,000 from each student in the last month of the year to build an cabin and install air-conditioners in the classroom. After the students protested, she reduced this to Rs. 5,000. However, the students were not given any receipts for this payment, and were advised not to mention it to the management.

  1. Sick, is what our education system has become. It needs a major dose of anti-biotics, to get rid of those parasitic worms we call our education officials..

  2. This is sick.

  3. I’ve been a student of National College for 6 yrs now and nothing like this has happened in the Junior or Degree with normal Sc, Comm and Arts students.. BMM on the other hand and specially Shivani is a big *****.. So I’m not surprised!! The BMM dept has always had problems.. But otherwise I assure you there is nothing wrong with the college.. Note- I have also been a Students’ Council member and know the inside stories but nothing regarding money has ever cropped up other in the BMM Dept.. They also asked BMM students to pay for the losses earlier when the BMM fest Cutting Chai had bombed!! So I would like to say don’t join Nationals for BMM.. Otherwise for other courses, it is a great college!

  4. Yes, truly appalling. Even more so because this is my old college…I guess the other rumours that I’ve heard are also true!

  5. Pretty cool post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say
    that I have really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
    I’ll be subscribing to your blog and I hope you post again soon!
