(Disclosure: IITM is my alma mater)

The beef fest at IITM and the ensuing tensions leave one shaking one's head. The IITs have already lost their sheen, what with the indiscriminate opening of campuses in every -- what, district? -- and unjustified affirmative action, do they really need to turn into another JNU? Why not try focussing on world-class research? What about, say, pushing the frontier on quantum computing? Nah, we'll focus on cattle slaughter and transportation, that's more fun.

More crocodile tears for the customers. Quick question: if the burden is on the customers, why don't we see them protesting on the streets, just like they did during the whole jallikattu thing?
