JNU JNU JNU JNU JNU.
Enough heard, enough said, enough read.
After reading more than 12 detailed accounts of the entire episodes and watching almost 15 videos showing ‘proof’ of the incident, I have been able to draw certain general conclusions (subjective), which I think will help you form an opinion.
Things the JNU incident taught us:
1. Only listen to Arnab Goswami when you want to brush up your English speaking skills. The media is unbelievable (Un-believable). So think twice before you ‘share’ misleading information.
2. There is immense power that democracy has vested in students (and everyone else). How we exercise it is what shapes the future.
3. The BJP is pro-actively working towards India’s development, but it is at the cost of suppressing democratic voices of dissent. (I am not referring to the pro-Pak or anti-India slogans)
4. Everyone has their own version of the ‘facts’ and almost all of them are convincing for a layman. More often than not, it is left to our prudence, experience and judgment, to interpret the situation.
5. You will always have friends and acquaintances who know the ‘inside’ story. Well, abstain from using both middle fingers. One should suffice.
6. Lastly, ALWAYS listen to both sides of the story before forming a stubborn opinion. At he end of the day, we only know what we have been told.
