Singh.. when you're happy

The Bangalore University syndicate is about to pass a resolution which will prevent boys and girls from sitting next to each other in class.. about time, i say, after all, each gender needs to have its own space... hell, no one objects when they make separate loos for guys and girls.. :)
but you cant blame these poor profs.. when guys start roaming around with long hair, and girls with short hair and all of them wear the same kind of clothes, the profs need to be able to have some sort of separation to distinguish among them... no one is thinking about the poor prof, there he is, walking around the class, lecturing and sharing a joke, he slaps a student on the back, it turns out to be a girl, and the next thing he knows, he is slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit...
okay, okay...thats enough of slapstick.. while i admit that its not exactly the greatest move by the university, a few years back, it was definitely an unwritten practice among students to sit separately in college classes.. yeah, maybe Kerala was a bit on the conversative side of things... a lot of kids come to colleges from all boys or all girls schools and therefore it is their first chance to learn to behave and mingle with the opposite sex... and creating an official barrier in the classroom may not be a good start at all... but hey, that still leaves the rest of the college.. and i bet the profs are thinking that while it would be a good idea to have sex education in classes, having both sex and education in classes may not be a great idea...
But the problem that could arise is that pretty soon, the entire lot of students being churned out of BU will be of a very reserved type... and that should definitely make Arjun Singh happy, he loves the reserved types...
until next time, boys and girls, whats your say on gender blenders!!

I was in a co-ed only for two years and those days really helped me a lot. I would have never been able to speak to any guy without it.

wow. your blogs SO good now. When things like sitting separately etc are discussed you really wonder whether all our other problems are solved...

sqrl/nt: problems are so subjective, arent they... i couldnt care less of the city's civic infrastructure, but the dug up road in front of my house is a burning issue... depends on what you are looking at, why you are looking at it, and where you are looking at it from..:)

brood mode : lookie who's back :)
