    Disha,

    Greetings ! I often come and* read articles on this web site and this ragging issue is well informed by media. But the reality is that all such raggers or gonda activists are indirectly supported by political organisations in colleges and institutions.

    The political crocodiles.. be the student leaders or their mai baaps who remain unseen behind the actual brutality have implication for being credulous, nasty and insensitive for most of the gruesome incidents. How come such incidents have ever happend if there were exemplery piunishments to offenders of law. Do you think that these politicians really had ever this intention ever to curtail this goonda menace being carried over for last many decades?

    These insensitive politicians can kill innocent kids for sake of their rallies by blocking traffics and dharnas (I am sure you remember that episode when a small child from remote region of Himachal Died as he was not provided medical care being stucked up in traffic while these scoundrels were having a dharna in front of Vidhan Sabha)..and we expect these to bring paradise for us by just making fake gestures and empty rules and regulations that never give timely justice and comfort to anyone.
