EDUCATION- Academic Inbreeding in Delhi University

January 24, 1976 ses as is the case today. Another conclusion that seems evident from the essentially undergraduate character of the Society (despite its membership being open to anyone in agreement with its objectives) is that the major flight of talent from Kerala starts right at the graduation level The Society has had plans to establish a Science Centre with some minimal facilities where simple experimental work can be undertaken. Such ambitious but worthwhile projects have however not made much headway. A EDUCATION major reservation expressed whenever the Society approaches the government or other agencies for aid relates to the "permanence" of the Society, since its existence depends on the renewed interest and efforts of students of each succeeding year. On closer scrutiny, the absurdity of this objection becomes apparent. Isn't it preferable to extend support to a spontaneously vital orga- nisation that is a truly living activity while it lasts rather than to pour money into fossilised institutions whose main merit is that they will go on for ever?
