National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), the student wing of the Congress,sought to approach the High Court with allegations that the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls that were held last week were rigged. The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the BJP, won a sweeping victory in the DUSU elections, securing 3 seats, while the NSUI secured 1 seat- that of Joint Secretary. NSUI goes on a hunger strike Protesting against rigging of the election results and faulty EVMs, the NSUI went on an indefinite hunger strike at Arts Faculty. According to NSUI’s National President, Amrita Dhawan, the NSUI had asked for cameras to be installed during the counting of votes so as to ensure transparency in the process. The NSUI’s protest was directed against this lack of transparency. Further, the organisation claims that in some colleges, certain buttons on the EVM could not be pressed. The hunger strike was held with the basic demand for a recounting of votes, along with a release of machine-wise data and recordings of the counting process. The strike was called off when the Chairman of the Grievance Redressal Committee assured the protesters that the committee would meet members of the organisation and come to a decision. Grievance Redressal Committee meets NSUI delegation For the first time in the history of Delhi University elections, the Grievance Redressal Committee met with an NSUI delegation comprising all NSUI candidates who contested the elections, along with National President Amrita Dhawan, Member of Parliament Oscar Fernandes, and Secretary of AICC K.C. Mittal. The NSUI submitted a memorandum of demands including recounting of votes, access to recordings of the counting process and re-election in colleges where there were discrepancies in the EVMs. Until these demands are met, they sought that no office bearer should be allowed to take charge. Conceding to the demands, the Grievance Redressal Committee furnished recordings of the counting process, besides the machine-wise votes secured by each candidate. NSUI dissatisfied with recordings, will approach the High Court According to NSUI’s press release, the organisation is dissatisfied with the recordings and data made available to them by the Grievance Redressal Committee. They allege that the camera was focussed on just 1-2 machines and did not show all 12 tables where votes from 140 machines were being counted. They also claim that there were discrepancies in the machine-wise data provided to them- some papers showed the wrong date of counting, while some papers were signed by only one official when the requisite number is two. Angellica Aribam, National General Secretary of the NSUI says, “From the data that has been considered, the NSUI has reached the conclusion that there is a lack of transparency in the DUSU polls and counting of votes. The organisation will now approach the High Court as the recordings made available by the Grievance Redressal Committee are not satisfactory, though the Committee has seen merit in our case.” Image credits: NSUI media cell Abhinaya Harigovind [email protected]]]>

Ankur Dhama, India’s first fully blind paralympic athlete registered a complaint with the Rio Paralympics authorities claiming that his guide was pushed during the 1500m heat.

Ankur, who is the first blind athlete to represent India at the Rio Paralympics, and is currently ranked at world number 7, participated in the 1500m heat at Rio. Unfortunately, he failed to qualify as his guide, Vipin, took a tumble, setting the team back by several seconds and injuring Ankur. However, Dhama, along with his coach, Satyapal Singh, have registered a complaint with the authorities at Rio on the grounds that a video grab shows Vipin being pushed by Deniz Simih of Turkey, who later went on to win the heat.

Though there is a 30-minute window after the race within which complaints must be registered, Vipin and Satyapal were not sure about the incident till footage was made available an hour later. Vipin had felt a nudge while they were choosing tracks, but could not ascertain if he was pushed or not by another athlete or guide. Once the video grab had confirmed their suspicions, inspite of having missed the 30-minute window, a complaint was registered, according to a statement issued by Satyapal Singh to Sportskeeda.

Ankur, who is a 22-year old MA student at Delhi University, is one of India’s best para-runners. He turned completely blind when he was six years old, after which he was sent to JPM Senior Secondary School in Delhi. The school’s emphasis on sports encouraged Ankur who began to compete and the national and international levels.

At the Dubai Asia-Oceania qualifier for the Paralympics, Ankur had secured a gold medal. His list of achievements is a long one. Ankur has also won a silver and two bronze medals at the Asian Para Games in 2014. A graduate from St. Stephen’s College, Ankur, like every visually challenged runner, runs with a guide- Vipin Kumar, a 20-year old Nagpur University student-who will be tied to him with a rope. Therefore, for the visually challenged, running is a team sport, requiring a great degree of co-ordination and mutual understanding. Further, the guide is required to be 10 seconds faster than the athlete and pushing and dragging is not allowed. Therefore, when Vipin fell, Ankur was thrown off guard and lost several seconds.

At the Olympics last month, an athlete was pushed during the race, after which he was given direct entry into the finals. According to Sportskeeda’s report, Satyapal is certain that if Ankur’s guide had not been pushed, he would have definitely qualfied and made it to the finals, with a good shot at getting atleast the bronze. The fall set Ankur back by 15 seconds as compared to his personal best. He had been hoping to improve his speed by 5 seconds at Rio.

The International Paralympic Committee is slated to take a decision on the matter on the 19th.

St. Stephen’s College organised elections for the President of its Students’ Union Society on 10th August, 2016. The election, which saw 3 candidates competing for the coveted position, culminated in the victory of Nikhil Varghese, a student of the BA Programme. Nikhil secured 372 votes, winning by a margin of 85 votes.

Prior to the elections, Stephen’s conducts an Open Court- an arena for the candidates to present their respective manifestos before the student body and invite and answer questions concerning the same. Regarding his experience at the high-octane event, Nikhil says, “It was great to watch students support us on the basis of our ideology, which is to be the voice of the students.”

What was it about his manifesto that set him apart from the other two candidates and clinched the victory for his group? “It is a manifesto that was put together after a discussion with the students, giving it a democratic character. Besides, we have studied the manifestos made over 3-4 years to identify those problems that previous Students’ Unions promised, but never looked into,” he says.

The most pressing issues that Nikhil and his Union would like to deal with include matters of discrimination (on grounds of gender or any other aspect) and hygiene. “There is a certain inequality with regard to decision making. Students must have a greater say in matters that concern them,” he asserts. Within a week of having taken charge, the Union has extended library timings to 7 p.m, on a two-week trial basis.

Foremost on Nikhil’s mind is the fact that previous Unions promised a great deal in their manifestos but rarely followed through with them. “This could possibly be why there was a considerable section of the student body opting for NOTA this year. Maybe they had lost their faith in the Union,” says Nikhil. This year, Stephen’s had a NOTA option on the EVM, with 45 votes polled for NOTA.

There has been a clamor for the inclusion of a NOTA button in the DUSU elections as well, while the same has already been implemented at JNU. Should students be given a NOTA option? “If the NOTA option receives a sizable number of votes, the election can even be declared invalid. In such a situation, it definitely is a good alternative to choose candidates who might be incompetent,” says Ankita Srivastava, a third year student at Stephen’s. Shubham Kaushik of Miranda House concurs. “A NOTA option should be made available, particularly if the candidates are not raising the right issues. If the student body feels that none of the candidates are capable, this option is a way of expressing the same,” she says.

Once the admission hurdle has been successfully crossed, the nagging question on every out-station student’s mind is the thought of moving to Delhi and living away from home. The prospect of moving induces both excitement and fear in equal measures it is up to you to ensure that one does not overwhelm the other as you make your way through the first few months of college. Here are some thoughts to keep in mind as you take this big leap forward:

1. It’s alright to agonise over it

But just for a while! If you’re nervous and anxious about moving, vent. There are several others, your seniors for instance, who have gone through similar changes and pangs of homesickness. Seek help and support. At the end of the day, you always know that your family and friends have got your back.

2. Learning to adjust

You may have had a room to yourself at home, with the liberty of watching T.V. till In hostel, the realisation will instantly dawn upon you that these simple pleasures have been rudely wrenched away from you. Some hostels may not have ACs or heaters. You will have to adjust, sometimes with roommates who may want to go to bed at 10 p.m, while you feel like the night has just begun. Learn to adjust and compromise. At the end of the day, the very same roommates and friends are the people who will become your family away from home.

3. Keeping an open mind

When most of us entered college, we were coming from schools with a more-or-less homogenous population, with classmates from similar backgrounds as ourselves. This will certainly not be the case in Delhi University which attracts a diverse crowd. In hostel, you will meet and live with people who may be very different from you, or have varied views and opinions. Hostel provides valuable lessons in keeping an open mind and learning to accept people for who they are. You will realise that there is a great deal you can learn from the people around you.

4. The concept of ‘private’ space may cease to exist

Your friends or your room mates’ friends will walk into your room like it’s their own. Afterall, what’s yours is theirs and vice versa. If you require alone time to work, find a place where you can do so, like the library. That being said, a significant aspect of living in a hostel is helping each other out when in need. Isolating yourself is not a good idea.

5. Acknowledge all the perks that you have

The easiest way to come to terms with the fact that you are no longer living at home is to look at all the positives of living in a hostel you’re very close to college or even within the same campus, and that gives you ample opportunity to be a part of every college activity. Societies, fests and other extra-curriculars you can wholeheartedly engage in everything without having to worry about the travel time on the metro, or making it back home by a certain time. Moreover, when you go home during the semester breaks, you will be showered with extra love.

Tip: Try not to hoard too many things in your hostel room, particularly if you take the flight home and you have a baggage limit. When you need to pack all your things up, you will regret having bought a lot of things that you never really needed.

Living in a hostel is an enriching experience by itself, and at the end of three years you will be able to look back and congratulate yourself on having accomplished the task of living away from home. You will have learnt a great deal and done a lot of things that you have never had to do before (like washing your own clothes, or sleeping without an AC in the glorious heat of the Delhi summer yes, that is an accomplishment). If you’re worried about the homesickness, I can assure you that in no time you will be too busy to be homesick.

The results of the momentous British referendum on whether or not the country must remain in the European Union was announced on Friday morning, with 51.9% of the populace voting in favour of Brexit: Britain’s exit from the EU. The victory was close, with 48.1% voting to remain in the EU. The majority in England voted for an exit, whereas Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to remain. The turnout at the referendum reached 72% with approximately 30 million voters.

British PM David Cameron, in an address to the public, announced that he will continue as PM for the next 3 months, after which the country and the Conservative Party will require fresh leadership. “I do not think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination. But, I will do everything I can in future to make this country great,” he said, after the UK voted in favour of Brexit, breaking over 40 years of post-war legacy.

Consequences of the Brexit poll

Within hours of the result being announced, the pound sterling has crashed to its lowest level since 1985, with bank stocks taking a deep plunge. Nigel Farage of the UK Independence Party, who was strongly in favour of Brexit, has termed the victory an ‘independence day’ for the United Kingdom. Cameron who was staunchly in favour of Britain remaining in the EU will have to resign after having been re-elected to office in 2015. He had sought a negotiation with the EU on the terms of British membership, rather than a complete exit.

Those in favour of Britain remaining within the EU believe that the common markets of the EU enable a flourishing British economy and an exit will only be harmful to British business interests since the EU’s policy of free trade will no longer be applicable to the UK. Britain’s exit may in turn weaken the European Union since the UK pays more into the EU budget that it gets out of it.

Indian politicians like Jairam Ramesh have been apprehensive of Brexit, with Ramesh calling the vote a ‘suicide.’  India’s major concern is its trade and foreign investments which may face an adverse backlash. Though financial markets across the world have fallen, Raghuram Rajan said that the RBI is prepared for any eventuality since India has a sizeable amount of foreign reserves.

Ever since Cameron announced in February this year that a referendum would be held to decide Britain’s membership to the European Union, opinion polls have been unable to clearly predict whether or not the country will vote in favour of an exit from the 28-member EU, which traces its origins to the aftermath of the Second World War. In announcing the referendum, Cameron was reacting to the demands of (mostly) Conservative MPs who claimed that the European Union’s regulations, particularly the Eurozone bailouts, were holding back the British economy through excessive control over its businesses. Those in favour of Brexit also pointed out the high levels of immigration into the UK as a reason for quitting the EU and its free movement policy. With the crippling refugee crisis at hand, Brexit propounders sought a tightening of immigration laws to reduce the inflow of workers into the UK, simultaneously seeking a greater degree of autonomy for Britain over its own borders and affairs.

On the international front, POTUS Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have been in favour of Britain remaining within the EU.

The most threatening sword of Damocles that hangs above all of our heads today is a two lettered, innocent sounding word ‘CV’. It appears as if one step in the wrong direction will jeopardise one’s future forever. It’s a weighty word though, inspite of the ease with which it can be spelt and said. Say it aloud among a group of college-goers and the atmosphere will be mixed- a pall of gloom on the side of those who feel like their all-important two page document is filled with exaggerated achievements in a painting competition at school, and jubilation and smugness on the side of those who have done eight internships, presented six research papers and published ten. The future is quite secure now, isn’t it? After all, isn’t that what they said? A good, long CV will get me a good job, and a good job means good money and a good life.

We spend our college lives, putting together that document-line by precious line. Don’t get me wrong- I am not saying your CV is not important or advocating rebellion against the established order of things. It definitely is a significant document, both in terms of higher education and employment.

But it’s time we watched what really goes into it. Doing an internship merely because it may add another fancy line to your CV is both redundant and a waste of your time. That piece of paper is meant to be a record of your dedication towards your goals and the ability to work towards them. Therefore, the number of internships you have done and research papers you have published will matter very little if you cannot identify your goals and justify your choices. Saying I interned with XYZ organisation because I wanted another line on my CV is certainly not an option.

Thus, building a CV should not be the only motivation to do anything in college- be it an internship, volunteering with an NGO, or publishing articles and research papers. College, after all, is the perfect opportunity to discover yourself, identify your interests and then pursue them as a career option or course for further education.

Pinjra Tod, which is a movement to secure non-discriminatory and affordable accommodation for women students, recently reported a case of fraud and harassment by a PG owner in Hudson Lines, North Campus, and the subsequent measures taken by the students of the PG.

The students of this women’s PG had been regularly facing harassment on several accounts, according to Pinjra Tod’s report. Rent agreements and receipts for rent paid were denied to them. The agreement initially had been for 11 months, after which the landlord was to reimburse the security deposit. Later, when the students were due to return home after their semester examinations, he began to insist that they stay for 12-13 months to receive reimbursement, else they would lose their deposit. Further, the students were forced to pay inflated electricity bills. Suspecting fraud, the students had turned off all electrical equipment to find that inspite of no use of electricity, the meters continued to run. The landlord and his family would also enter rooms and taunt or abuse the women.

Due to continued threat, abuse and harassment, 9 students of the PG filed a complaint with the police, after which the landlord called their parents up, accusing the women of ‘smoking’ and ‘drinking.’

A confrontation at the Mukherjee Nagar Police Station resulted in a victory for the women. The landlord had to return the security deposit to all 9 students, and the students have registered a complaint with the NDPL, refusing to pay the inflated electricity bills.

“This kind of harassment is very rampant throughout Delhi,” says Subhashini Shriya of Pinjra Tod. “Due to dependency of the students on the PG owner and vulnerability of the students, combined with misinformation by the PG owner to parents, students find it difficult to come out with such cases.” On the reaction of the authorities to Pinjra Tod’s demand for regularisation of PGs, Subhashini says, “DU administration says that since these are private accommodations, it is beyond the scope of their authority. There are several PGs that are not registered with the police and most PGs give no receipt on receiving rent. Neither the university nor the police has taken this up.”

Pinjra Tod has decided to prepare a blacklist of PGs based on information given in by students on cases of sexual harassment, interference of the landlord, receipt for rent paid and rent agreements. “When students seek accommodation in PGs, they must have a better understanding of the comfort and security of these places. The blacklist will serve this purpose,” says Subhashini.

Pinjra Tod is also working towards ensuring that the University implements a standardisation of rules and rents in this regard. “We would like to set in place a system where students should be able to approach the university for redressal of such grievances,” says Subhashini.
