Noted. Thanks, Cal.
Glad to read of these protests.
From article: "The crackdown signals an utter lack of judgment in the government, where ministers manage to manufacture a national crisis out of what were always, at best, minor affectations in student politics."
"We are witnessing liberal India, particularly young people who are usually more idealistic, fighting back."

I sympathise with India, but in South Africa the "masses" are making the universities ungovernable. My daughter is trying to further her education but with the current unrest, she will have to go overseas to continue, which so many of the youngsters have already done.
