STUDENT UNREST

OR

STUDENT IN DISCIPLINE

OR

STUDENTS AND STRIKES

OR

STRIKES! STRIKES! WHERE WILL THEY LEAD US?

 

    There is a wave of unrest among the students of today.  Not a single day passes without the news of a strike in some college or some university.  In disciplined behavior on the part of the students has become a matter of everyday occurrence.  On frivolous pretexts, the student choose to go on rampage.  They do not hesitate from burning national property, insulting and attacking their teachers, stoning buses and creating chaos and disorder.  Sometimes it is a question of the cinema tickets that makes them go violent; at still another time it is the issue of increased bus fares or fees that makes them go on a rampage. Everyday there is a new pretext.  They are never in a mood to take to their books seriously and attend the classes in a disciplined manner.

                Now, this is a very sad state of affairs.  Students of today are the leaders of tomorrow.  The problem of student unrest cannot, therefore, be dismissed as something unimportant.  The nation cannot be allowed to go to dogs.  Those in authority must go into the causes of unrest and see if some corrective steps can be taken to save the situation.

                The most important reason of this unrest is the spirit of the age.  It is an age of science and intellect.  The modern  young man is not prepared to take anything for granted or to accept anything without questioning.  He wants to know how and why things happens as they do.  He is not prepared to accept the established moral values or faiths.  He has lost his spiritual moorings and wants to find a new cult to sustain himself.  If is a rootless generation cut off from the past, facing an uncertain future.  Students are a part of this generation.  They are full of doubts and questions.  Elders fail to present any  enviable image before them and do not win their respect or admiration.  Students are a witness to the hypocrisy of their elders.  They notice a sharp contrast in what they preach and what they practice.  It is, therefore, natural for them to get frustrated.

                Another important cause of student unrest is the interference of political parties in the educational institutions.  Almost all the political parties have set up their front organizations in universities and colleges.  They are always on the look-out for opportunities to exploit the student  community for their narrow, selfish ends.  Students fall an easy prey to the viles of these unscrupulous politicians and take to the streets without much rhyme or reason.

                The system of education and the system of examination make thing worse.  The content of education proves to be of no use to the student in later life.  With degrees in their hands, the students have to move from pillar to post in search of jobs.  Jobs are offered only to those who have some pulls or who can use some backstair influence.  Examinations are no test of a student’s ability.  They are more a matter of chance than a real test of achievement.  The student is all the time burdened with the prospect of an uncertain future.  There is no living contact between the teacher and the taught.  The teacher fail to inspire their students.  They are just like agents to distribute pills of knowledge in a very uninspiring and dull manner.  All this leads to frustration that shows itself in the form of unrest of indiscipline.

                Various remedies have been suggested to overcome the problem of the student unrest.  The system of education is being changed.  The new scheme of 10+2+3 aims at providing vocational education at the plus two stage and making education more purposeful and useful.  It also aims at reducing rush at the university stage so that our colleges are no more crowded with unmotivated students.  There is a proposal to involve the students in the administration of colleges, universities and various other fields of academic and co-curricular activities.

                A lot is being done to harness the student power for constructive activities, but much more remains to be done.  The government is seriously thinking of overhauling the entire system of education to make it really useful and worthwhile.  Let us hope that things will change for the better in due course of time.  There is no need to be pessimistic, disappointed or dejected.  The present chaos would certainly, in due course of time, give rise to a new order based on discipline, decency and decorum.
