India was never considered free and universal It has always been the prerogative of the few It was not considered worthwhile for all till Mahatma Jyothirao Phulein a memorandum to the Hunter Commission in 1882criticised the Britishsaying that they were providing higher education to upper castes by taxing illiterate farmers Muslims in the Madras Presidency also appealed to the Hunter Commission for places in schools and colleges Thereafterthe government introduced what is now known as reservations in educational institutionswhich became an all-India programme after Independence But higher education was never made universalas it was offered by private colleges from the beginning The British Indian government introduced the grant-in-aid system to support private enterprise and philanthropy before Independence That continued for a long time till the unaided (self-financing) college scheme came in to operation a few decades ago Now higher education is controlled by the government through the universities and regulatory bodies such as UGCAICTEICMR and so on Enough of their officers are now in jail to show how much corruption in the higher education system has been enabled by the new economic policy towards higher education The World Bank and its partisans recommendations for India differ from the free or accessible higher education prevailing in the West It is a shame that an independent country is relying on foreign recommendations and sends crores as fee money abroad for the higher education of the rich There is no difference between the present government and the previous NDA government as far as higher education is concerned Vajpayees NDA appointed a committee under Aditya Birla to recommend reforms in higher education in 2009; it repeated the World Bank line and further recommended that privatisation of higher education is the only way through which we can reach our goals The UPA government has appointed Sam Pitrodaa US-based technocratto recommend measures to improve knowledge systems in India He recommended that we should have 1500 universitiesto compete with China; and as the government doesnt have the capacity to invest in higher educationit was better to invite foreign universities Kapil Sibal has jumped at the recommendationsand prepared four or five bills to implement themwhich are pending before Parliament The government has not even looked at what the advanced capitalist countries like the US and UKtheir model statesare doing about higher education For examplethe Obama government has taken crucial decisions to improve the attendance of African-Americans in universitieswith additional funding Wemeanwhilesuffer several dichotomies in our higher education today We all know that due to the unbridled competition among private colleges in Tamil Nadu and Andhrahundreds of engineering colleges were opened a few years agomost offering IT-related courses Recession in the West has reduced the demand for BPO servicesand for the body-shopping in which companies like Infosys and TCS send educated bonded labourers abroad or do the same donkey-jobs in India This has impacted the demand for IT coursesand I am told that hundreds of colleges in the south could be closed Imagine the wastage because of the lack of guidance and support by the government The problems in our education systemincluding higher educationare because of the governments unwillingness to take steps in the development of educationleaving everything to the market This is not correct A state has a responsibility to provide minimum services in educationhealth and welfare But the governments attitudeparticularly of the policymaking bodythe Planning Commissionis disgusting as if they are there to serve a few private individuals and corporatesand make policies only for them Their idea of PPP public-private partnership is basically a privatisation strategy They wanted the higher education system to be developed through PPP mode Wellwe all know now what has happened to engineering colleges So how can we support PPP now in higher education Ratherit is the duty of the stateparticularly in a country like Indiato take responsibility for higher education It is its duty to ensure qualityand skills that are in demand in the labour market Universities in the states suffer several problems They do not have teachersand cannot pay salaries and pensions Meanwhilesome teachers in private colleges are paid less than Rs 5000 a month Social science departments are short of studentsand those in high-tech courses like ITand biotechnology lack skills necessary for the job market It is under these conditions that we are thinking of free higher education for all The Planning Commission has

Wednesday "We estimate that over the past 11 months we’ve killed about 25000 enemy fighters When you add that to the 20000 estimated killed (previously) that’s 45000 enemy (fighters) taken off the battlefield" said Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland who commands the US-led coalition campaign against IS MacFarland said estimates for the overall remaining strength of IS vary from about 15000 to 30000 but he noted the jihadists are having increasing difficulties replenishing their ranks Representational image Reuters "The number of fighters on the front line has diminished They’ve diminished not only in quantity but also in quality — we don’t see them operating nearly as effectively as they have in the past which makes them even easier targets for us" MacFarland told Pentagon reporters via a videocall from Baghdad "As a result their attrition has accelerated here of late" he added Officials also estimate IS has lost 25000 square kilometers of the territory it once held in its self-declared "caliphate" in Iraq and Syria or about 50 per cent and 20 per cent respectively in each country The US-led military effort against the Islamic State group started exactly two years ago aimed at halting the jihadists as they swept across Iraq and Syria MacFarland was upbeat about the eventual recapture of Mosul in Iraq and Raqa in Syria saying it would herald the "beginning of the end" of the campaign But critics have blasted the pace of the war which got off to a slow start and despite more than 14000 air strikes and an intense effort to train partner forces still has not routed IS from much of its territory MacFarland who has headed the US-led coalition for almost a year said he had seen major progress "You don’t hear the word ‘stalemate’ anymore That’s because over the past year with our partners we were able to seize the initiative" MacFarland said "We now talk about maintaining the momentum of the campaign in both Iraq and Syria In other words we spend more time thinking about what we will do to the enemy than we spend thinking about what the enemy might do to us" Experts do foresee the eventual collapse of IS but the jihadists are fighting back by calling on followers to launch attacks across the globe and are likely to persist for years as a terrorist organization Written by Vallabh Ozarkar | Mumbai | Published: October 9 2016 3:12 am In the British era prior to the 1880s it was Byculla that had more prominence on a daily basis than the Bori Bunder station owing to its proximity to the horse stables Top News ONE of the busiest stations on Central Railway the Byculla station is actually more than 125 years old Suddenly in the news over reports that it could see a remodelling in the coming years to accommodate more railway lines the station which opens onto the busy JJ Road area has tremendous significance in history According to records construction of the station started in 1887 and was completed in 1891 When the first railway line became operational in India with a train leaving Bombay’s Victoria Terminus at Bori Bunder on April 16 1853 at 1530 hrs for Thana (today’s Thane) one of its halts was at the very area where the Byculla station would eventually be built Railway historian Rajendra B Aklekar says “Byculla has an important place in the history of Indian railways and was one of the stations along India’s first railway route It was the place from where trials of the first passenger steam locomotive were held before trains began to run in 1853 between Byculla and Parel” In the British era prior to the 1880s it was Byculla that had more prominence on a daily basis than the Bori Bunder station owing to its proximity to the horse stables “Byculla is also the place where the Bombay Governor’s wife Lady Falkland took her first ride on the train in 1853” Aklekar adds The original Byculla station structure was not located exactly where it is today — it was a bit further south opposite Mankeshwar Temple But the wide porches poles and arches of the present-day station are dipped in heritage — one ticket window bears the logo of the old railway service before it was renamed The station itself is a listed heritage structure according to BMC records Its arched decorative roof is somewhat hidden behind the chaos immediately outside both exits and the general grubbiness dims the more aesthetic aspects of the structure According to records the station’s design had to be revised by the railway’s senior officials in London to shave off some costs By the time the building was finally constructed the Victoria Terminus building was simultaneously being completed The contractor for both structures was the same Parsi firm Berjoorjee Rustomjee Mistri and Co Have a comment or suggestion
