      Kanpur, India

I want to bring to the notice of all news channels, media persons,T.V reporters,parents , students and alumni of Bits Pilani, so that they can
broadcast it and such mishaps which happened with my brother can be
avoided. My cousin brother,Shaurya Agarwal was the only child and his
Father died when he was just four years old. His mother, a very brave
and courageous lady, is a teacher and brought him up. He was a
brilliant student and got selected in Bits Pilani last year. He was
just 19 years old!! He was a good swimmer, but on 15th October, 2013
he drowned in the swimming pool in Bits Pilani Campus.I still DO NOT
UNDERSTAND THIS, how a good swimmer got drowned in the Campus swimming pool?? Due to the negligence and irresponsibility of the Campus people and the instructor, no help was provided on time. All that was done,
was to take him to the nearest hospital, that took more than half an
hour.....by that time it was too late. Yes, a call did come from the institute, to his mother telling her to take her son back. If that is not RUDE and INHUMAN then I need to understand the "new definition " of being human!! He was a very good son, a very sweet brother and above all a very good human being!! I just want to bring this incident to everyone's notice, so that such negligence and irresponsibility on the part of such reputed and prestigious institutions is not repeated and they take care and responsibility for the children who go there. We are still in a state of shock !! Today, 25th October is his birthday!! Please, I request you all,please bring this serious matter to everyone's notice, as for some it may be just another accident or
death, but ask a woman , who has lost her husband when her son was
only 4 years old and now her son at the age of 19 !! Please I request you all, please let's bring this negligence on the part of this institute to public notice, so that such cases do not happen ever again.Please sign this petition and forward it also. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping some action will be taken, “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” ― John Bunyan
Thank you everyone in advance and God bless you all.

This petition is of utmost importance, as it will bring to the public
notice the negligence and irresponsibility on the part of such reputed and prestigious institution - Bits Pilani!!

      Please Guys, all the Students of bits pilani, TAKE A STAND!! When all is said and done, more is said than DONE...................I RESTATE, there may be times, when we are powerless to prevent injustice, BUT there must never be a time, when we fail to " PROTEST" !!!!!

      I have written this time and again, that by just signing this PETITION, will only spread " AWARENESS " and this will be of no use, if no"ACTION" is taken.
      It is an "Awareness Campaign", ----- AWARENESS ----- about the negligence and irresponsibility on the part of such prestigious private institution. It is done with the hope of "CREATING AWARENESS " so that some "ACTION" is taken and such mishaps, which happened with my Brother is not repeated ever again with anybody else, with the motive to drive people ---- especially the bright, intelligent, youth of INDIA and of course, of BITS PILANI to ACTION.

    6. Do come together for a "good cause" let this institute realize its blunder!

      TAKE ACTION GUYS !! It is going to be a Month, since my Brother left for his heavenly abode, but there has been no ACTION taken by the brilliant, intelligent,smart and bright young Students of Bits Pilani, who can (if they want to) make a difference, so that justice is done and such negligence and irresponsibility is stopped forever.
      When YOU ALL join your hands together for a good cause then, THINGS CHANGE, PEOPLE CHANGE !!

      Kharagpur, March 22: The death of a third-year student sparked off violence in the IIT Kharagpur campus on Sunday as angry students attacked the residence of Director Damodar Acharya who later said he was "resigning" owning moral responsibility after Institute doctors were accused of medical negligence.
      Acharya, whose house was damaged by agitating students following the death of Rohit Kumar, a third-year Electrical Engineering student, earlier in the day said before the media tonight that he was "resigning".
      The Director's move came as he rejected the students' demand to suspend the Superintendent of IIT-run hospital for alleged negligence leading to the death of Kumar and maintained that an inquiry panel should first probe the incident before any action could be taken.

      THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN.

      Hello to all Shaury's( Chonchu) Friends, Students of bits pilani, Alumni of bits pilani, all the Parents of the Students who are studying in bits pilani, all those whose hearts he has touched in some way, all those who have Compassion and DO NOT WANT THIS MISHAP ON THE PART OF THE INSTITUTE GO DOWN IN HISTORY, AS JUST A "CASUAL ACCIDENT" !! PLEASE, WE ( SHAURY'S FAMILY AND FRIENDS) NEED YOUR HELP --- I know , it sounds quite clichéd, BUT ALL THOSE WHO ARE STUDYING THERE, APPROX. 3000 - 4000 BRIGHT, YOUNG, INTELLIGENT, MINDS, CAN AND WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE, IF YOU, YES IF YOU WANT TO!!!!!
      I agree, a few, say 10, 20,50, BRILLIANT Students of bits pilani cannot make a difference, as, they ARE SCARED, ( and rightly so, because they think, that if they take some action, it might jeopardize their career). But, let's turn the pages of History - ours or any Nation's ---- TOGETHER WE HAD IN THE PAST MADE A DIFFERENCE AND THERE ARE MANY INCIDENTS AND VICTORIES, which are testimony to the fact!!

      A human life is a god's gift... irresponsible behaviour leads to death of that innocent boy which results in leaving her mother alone.. a little care can makes accidents rare... a life guard is necessary for every pool. its purely negligence of bits pilani

      Medical facilities and their availability must definitely be improved in Pilani. This incident is an eye-opener. Though this happens very rarely, a student's life is of utmost importance because of all the years of hardwork the student has put in to join this prestigious institution and all the aspirations of his near and dear are at stake. Who knows - may be BITS lost a future leader / teacher / director / entrepreneur. Life must be given its due importance especially in a place where future leaders are being made. As BITSAA we must meet up and work towards what we can collectively do achieve this
