Ragging - Poem by hasmukh amathalal

Universities and campus prepare their grave,
In the guise of education they put front brave,
Bur on ground of morality they cave in,
Line drawn clear but education thin,

Great fall in standard and knowledge lagging,
More efforts on fashion and thrust on ragging,
Many loose their lives on name of flogging,
It is blot or shame and prestige more dragging,

From a distance some movement I saw,
Senior hitting junior with his fist on jaw,
Not knowing what? Junior bowed and beg,
Saw I senior pouring liquor from peg,

All students shouted and danced with joy,
Entrant was unaware and cried like boy,
This was great fun as if playing with toy,
Humanity at loss and disgrace they enjoy,

Student suffered injury with eye lost,
Life became hell as faced humiliation most,
Blind he became with life at cost,
Protest, uproar, outcry still no penalty post,

Even females not by boys but girls spared,
Forced to remove cloths and honour not cared,
Parade them in open with body made bare,
Not shamed by self but make others aware,

There is race in campus to corner any miss,
Who will venture first for open kiss?
Such is scene and action so childish?
No steps being taken with argument foolish,

Poor boys and girls enter with high hope,
Bright carrier, idea golden all of sudden flop,
Some jump in water and few commit suicide,
How to face crime not been able to decide,

Inhuman act persist and still prevail,
No option open as how to education avail,
Who do we blame? Society or parent,
Weaknesses still remain as quality inherent,

Precious lives lost with strict laws present,
Zeal for study and respect remain absent,
Why these continue if there is consent?
Why no public opinion who always do resent?

Ragging should be banned with stringent action,
Punish guilty with heavy
Dare anybody in future must face complete ouster,
Dire with consequences and no escape from cluster,

Neither it is simple an act of joking,
Nor it is pleasure with act of smoking,
All we need is strict laws invoking,
Ban rude elements even need poking

    i do agree....thought if you think about it these things have always existed....but they wern't so public.....teens simply don't care anymore what people think of them.....retaliation has always been cool 'in'.....but the more schools bring in rules that are stupid and let good ones go the more troubles there are...over the past century life stiles have changed drastically.....thought you have to wonder if it was all for the better....in my mind my parent's generation seems too soft....maybe that means mine is too ruff.....that's something to think about
    very nice 10++ (Report) Reply
