Higher education is a very big deal on our planet. Billions of people who deserve it, Fail to get so, due to factors such as Competition, Unfair Means, Economic Conditions, Countries Policies and the list is big!!
Indian higher education system has crossed some such barriers and has one of the most accessible form of higher education in the world.
But in recent trends now seen in the Indian Higher Education system (Amity University in particular), We see that the students feel it is easier to commit suicide than to fight.
According to an article in Hindustan times, there have been 4 suicide cases in Amity university (Noida Campus) alone since Aug-2016.
This is a drastic big number.
August of 2016 was when the first suicide was reported as the Law student was detained from giving exams due to low attendance. Who committed suicide in his home.
This gets even worse when you find out that, 1 of the 4 was a 1st year engineering student who was found dead after he skipped his physics exam in H-3 Hostel
Recently a 3rd year engineering student was found hanging on the ceiling fan. Found next to him was a suicide note in english explaining his hard time coping with academic pressure, and considering that he recently flunked a subject.
Although in direct comparison to other such universities, we find that amity is a lot lenient in academic norms. But these cases are not so visible in other universities.
Clearly there is something wrong with the university environment.
We feel that the management fails to understand the pool of students provided to them and in the race with other private universities and the copying system of academics; Amity just doesn't understand how to harness the potential of their student pool.
We here believe in the management of Amity University and show an immense respect to any of their following decision, but looks like this time we need to wake them up before the numbers get even bigger.
Therefore Sign this petition and help us awake the management of Amity for a better future.
Because youth is what our country have the most, and youth leaders are what this country need the most.
