A Tale of University’s South Campus

This is in reference to the article, titled “A Tale of University’s South Campus” (Kashmir Observer, 20th May 2016) in which I revealed all the wrong that is happening in this satellite campus. One fact that I have inadvertently revealed is that “even students have to arrange the cooks”. This I came to know is not correct. I apologize to KO readers for this wrong information. The cooks have been provided by University and not arranged by students. All the other facts are true to the best of my knowledge. However university has made a big issue of this one wrong fact and glossed over other facts. Instead of taking notice of my one false fact, the university authorities should have corrected their bulk of wrongdoings. It is unfortunate that our pleas to mend the system fall on deaf ears.

It isn’t only me, who wants to have a good system at place but it is the whole campus that want the system be corrected. Students don’t want to collect money and go to markets to purchase food stuff. It is not good for we people to waste our precious time. We aren’t here studying hotel management courses. If university wants we people to learn hotel management skills besides our usual studies, then they must compensate us by giving us a diploma in hotel management, so that we will get a point added to our resumes, in order to get edge over the students of Main Campus and North Campus. Since students from these campuses don’t have to waste their time in managing the mess.

I therefore request the university authorities to relieve students from these things and allow us to focus on our studies. We have chosen to be in hostel to save our time. So please mend the system. It isn’t possible to make a utopia but you can make the system perfect, rather ideal for students.
