When social media are dumped with posts against the injustice that is imposed to the students of TN in the name of NEET,when satellite news channels are continually broadcasting interviews ,throwing fusillade of questions to the politicians with the intentions to put barricades to the pathetic situation of the 12th Std students,we are still in pursuit of the solution.
Similar to the cauvery dispute ,this has been added to the list of unresolved issues of TN topping the first.Despite raising cold shoulders and protests,the central government remains quiet as always when it comes to TN.
We have already lost the lives of students who were unable to clear NEET .We are in the journey of saying a big NO to this exam not because the students of TN are incapable.They can jump mountains and accomplish impossible to possible.The NEET exam could be justified and made fair if an impartial and broadly equal education syllabus is followed in common throughout the country.
Adding fuel to the fire,the news broke stating that TN is devoid of allocation of exam centres for NEET.And every individual who is supposed to take up the entrance test should travel miles to another state to which he /she has never been to (with special mention that govt is granting a huge sum of Rs.1000/-)
A very pitiful situation has been imposed to the students when they are already under a hell of pressure and nail biting in preparing for exams.Ofcourse the marks which they would be securing in the board exams are no way going to lend a supporting hand .The ultimate deciding fate is the marks they are going to score in this entrance test.
The pressure of arriving at the examination destination would probably be dominating rather than taking up the exams.Now the compass has drifted apart 180° from banning of NEET to managing to appear at the exams somehow crossing all the hurdles.
I remember the lines from the book by Preethi Shenoy,”Climbing Mount Everest without capabilities of extreme levels of physical endurance” is similar to attending the exam.
This is the victory of those who are suppressing and hitting at the heads of people of TN assuming that we are innocent and are having the innate ability of acceptance for anything.
And politicians out here are in the arena of blaming the ruling party or opposition party mixing politics in education seeking gain.
Again i have list of questions popping out my mind.
1.Are TN colleges denied of facilities to conduct a national level examination?
2.Why are politicians not having the intentions to first rectify the intra party issues and kick out the problematic one rather than blaming the opposition?
3.Is the vaccum that is prevailing in Tamil Nadu politics paving way for back to back attacks ?
4.Whether people of TN have been cursed with the fate of acquiring anything only through protests ?
5.Should we still feel proud that we are INDIANS when we are literally seperated from the country?
6.Intentions to ban Jallikattu,Ignorance in forming Cauvery Management Board,Keen interest in setting up Sterlite factory to spread cancer generously ,Persuading the students to travel far distances just for an exam thereby making it herculean.A lot more to be added.Is there anything left out that can crush the people of TN more?
