In Thumbnailthe atmosphere of stark neglect that pervades the education infrastructure of Bihar, many students, almost all from poor, Dalit and Muslim families have been holding makeshift classes in protest in the streets of Bhojpur district which have now popularly become known as ‘Sadak Par’ schools. They have been protesting the poor and non-existent school facilities, including the lack of teachers, libraries, books, proper sanitation; caste-based discrimination and the overall state of neglect of government schools. Further, in a disturbing incident, Dalit students in a school in Agaion block were made to clean the school toilet with their own hands. Stirred to action, many people from these areas participated in the strident protests since mid-April.

Students were beaten up in the most brutal manner in Delhi for demanding action by the government in connection with the suicide of Rohith Vemula. Students and youth all over the country are extremely agitated at the victimization of students by the authorities, for expressing views which may be at variance with those of the ruling establishment -- views which turn the spotlight on the failings of the prevailing political and social system -- and for trying to organise around those views. What has happened in Hyderabad Central University revealing the rot that has set within the system has been happening in many universities across the country.

Agrarian ruination caused by seed monopolies

The havoc wrought by the multinational corporations (MNCs) and FIIs (Foreign Institutional “Investors”), who have been given a red carpet welcome by our government is best illustrated by what Vandana Shiva calls a new form of pollution from genetically engineered crops. Genetic pollution is destroying biodiversity and devastating farmers’ livelihoods. The chemical corporations are the ‘gene giants’ who now control seed. Instead of being the voice of the poor and vulnerable farmers, says Vandana Shiva, the Prime Minister has become the voice of powerful global corporations (through his repeated reference to genetic engineering as the second Green Revolution). Neoliberalism to which the government is passionately addicted is leading to the privatisation of seed and land, water and biodiversity, health and education, power and transport — in fact, it is leading to the privatisation of government itself!
