Ragging has been finally banned and the Supreme Court has given out the necessary orders. Yes, this is a news thats making the headlines for many years now. But whats it, that has made me take a special notice of this news? The Supreme Court has ordered "a criminal charge" on those who indulge in ragging activities. OMG!!! A criminal!!! Yes. God only knows the degree to which this would be enforced. A guy and a girl seen talking normally in a strict college can be expelled on charges of ragging and the culprit is the guy with a criminal charge on them. So is this the POTA kind of act against the college students?? When I read the news I could heard a bell ring in my head. Hereafter the college discipline committee would say "Students if you don't obey the rules you will be charged with ragging offense and you will be a criminal thereafter. So better do what we tell you". Well all this is fine. But whats the future of a student who is a criminal for ragging offense? Colleges don't admit students with criminal charges. Neither Indian not abroad universities accept such grads. You cant apply for a passport nor get your visa stamped. You cant get a job neither in a private concern nor in a government office. Life, in short, is hell for these guys. But there is life as a politician because many criminals are politicians today. Jokes apart, if you are accusing somone for ragging offense please make sure they did it and is a punishable offense otherwise don't add one criminal more by just fooling around. Please distinguish between fun and offense. Don't gift him/her the "criminal" tag for the sake of a revenge or just to show your displeasure.
