CYBERBULLYING



The humanitarian crisis has cultivated a ‘New Normal’ vitality for all of us. Ranging from quarantine greenhouse dates to online classes and good-byes, we all have harmonized to the culture. Technology played an integral role in maintaining the continuity as it brought new dimensions to the responsibilities of educators and mentors. 

But we need self-introspection to rethink the ethical use of technology. If Zoom is that easy to hack into, it’s likely to expect kids and teens trying to follow suit. The era where gadgets are the ‘toys’ for the kids plus the ‘Lockdown’ has increased the fear of ‘Cyberbullying.

Do you think the scrapping of ECA Quota by the University of Delhi rips apart the cultural fabric of the University and creates a void that engulfs any scope for artistic growth?

A lot of students hopeful of securing a seat in Delhi University with their achievements in sports and extra-curricular activities, will not get a chance to showcase their talent as the varsity will not have sports and extracurricular activities, or ECA, trials in view of the coronavirus pandemic. Only candidates with NCC and NSS certificates will be considered for admissions under the ECA category while admissions under the sports category will be granted based on merit certificates.

The normalcy till December 2019 is dearly missed by the people across the globe, with no restrictions, stepping out at any time of the day, be it to simply hang out with friends or to sit and have a little “me time” at the café. The sudden outbreak of the deadly virus has affected people of all age groups. The normalcy was an excuse for some to escape the toxic environment of home and take a break from the reality. Alas, 2020 wasn’t in their favour.



Since the lockdown had been implement worldwide, the aim was to eradicate the spread of the virus and eventually, the virus itself. Confining themselves at home, the mental health wasn’t given much of a thought, with the routine life coming to a halt altogether.



For children, they found comfort and pastime in extreme exposure in front of Television screens, and gadgets supporting the usage of internet. In a study i... Read More

Pandemic and Digital Divide: Sparking Mental Trauma among young minds.





The lack of technological resources in the hands of the poor has challenged remote-learning which can create a big - learning gap between the rich & poor. We can't imagine the physiological trauma of a child who craves to study but can't.

The Digital Divide: The non-accessibility of gadgets has created a historic wave of mental-health problems like suicide, depressions etc.



According to the 2017-’18 National Sample Survey report on education, only 24% of Indian households have an internet faci... Read More

HOME SCHOOLING: Rejection of the cookie-cutter approach to education



“The philosophy of Home Schooling is, you take real life and then you turn that into schooling.”



“Tota Kahani” by Rabindranath Tagore narrates the story of a free-spirited parrot who would hop, skip, fly and sing all day. A king ordered that the bird be 'civilized', and so it was put in a golden cage. In the flood of restrictions and instructions, it soon forgot to sing, and then, couldn't even squawk. When it tried to fly, its wings were clipped. Soon the parrot died, with not a sound except for the rustle of books in its stomach.



The same story is painted on the walls of Shikshantar in Udaipur, which calls itself a people's institute for rethinking education and development. In the mural, t... Read More

In a recent turn of events, the students who’ve been pursuing their education from the grand state with rich history of Maharashtra, have a profound sigh of relief by the decision of the Chief Minister of Maharashtra to promote students pursuing their final year to cancel all their examinations and promote them on the basis of aggregate marks scored by the student in their previous semester while the students who feel that they can perform better are welcomed to take the examinations in the months of October-November, 2020. The decision was taken in the light of recent events where Mr. Thackrey announced if, under any circumstances the lockdown is extended till June 30, 2020, the state will not have any option but to promote the final year students.

“Sexuality leads to Self-Knowledge” 

I broke my silence today and whined as loud as I could, “Yes! I’m a Gay. I cherish flaunting with my worn long hair and I fancy dating a lovely man because I’m proud of my individuality.”

I started discovering my intense temptation towards same-sex when I was 14 but I was scared to endorse myself. The impressions of abnormality and medication used to vex me and I was eaten like a horse with, “Self-hatred.”

“Hey Mr. Long Hair, the thresholds of your happiness must be traversing all horizons. Section 377 has been decriminalized. So, confess your love.”, said the teacher, embarrassing me in front of my classmates. So, I broke my silence as my sexuality is my identity. It is part of my behaviour with biological and genetic factors and not an oddity that ne... Read More

When the world is battling against Coronavirus, DU students are battling against online exams. The university whose site barely works, will take online examination of third year students. 

Delhi University, rolled out a press release stating that examination will be conducted for final year students in the month of July. The first reaction of final year students’ were “what about my last semester results?” And I have seen many memes regarding DU conducting online exams. Honestly online exams might turn into a big failure. Many students don’t have their study materials and I know you all will agree when I say online classes can’t cover up for offline classes. Many students feel that the study material shared by teachers hasn’t helped to understand the syllabus fully. I remember I had trouble during my admissions because Delhi University’s site wasn’t working, listening abo... Read More
