“In any community, there cannot be any politics
when there is perfect unity”
-PORTKO.
Politics begins with controversy, argument, competition or rivalry. If the controversy, argument, competition or rivalry is a genuine one for some kind of improvement or development, it is welcome. We should always keep it in mind that there are unnecessary controversies, there are unnecessary arguments , there are unhealthy competitions and there are ugly rivalries .One way or the other all these elements are working against unity .
Among the students, normally the ideal unity is expected. Students community is an excellent example of social harmony cutting across all boundaries such as religious, linguistic, regional, political, national and communal. This type of unity cannot be found in any other social organization. We should appreciate this phenomenon and develop this to further heights with due care and concern.]The present Scenario of the student community is rather different which causes concern and worries to the teachers & parents. ‘What is it that causes concern & worries?’ Among the students, we find now some kind of discrimination between the new entrance & the seniors. This discrimination gives rise to superiority complex to a few as well as inferiority complex to many . As a result of this sometimes, the false ego of the seniors is hurt and at some other times the genuine self-respect of the new entrance is perturbed . When it crosses a limit , group are formed among students. The unity is disturbed. Each group wants to show that they are superior to others. In order to achieve this they begin to make use of foul plays and illegitimate tactics which ultimately leads to violent politics.Whether they are willing or not willing , the teachers at some point of time have to handle the problems pertaining to students politics in addition to their routine responsibility .How do the Teachers look at the Students politics?
Teachers view:
Of course there are some teachers who are very sympathetic, kind, and considerate with parental care.They try to understand the different dimensions of the problems of the students. They know that youth community cannot be a group of Sadhus. According to them ,the youth should behave like youth . But at the same time they should be aware of their own limits . Youth can enjoy freedom but the freedom will be meaningful only when there is a sense of discipline & responsibility. If there is no sense of discipline and responsibility in a community, then there cannot be any freedom at all .Even the games are bound by rules. The teachers try to make the students understand their limits by using their authority or affection . Such teachers do not hate the students nor they are angry with the students . There are also some other teachers who are furious about the students’ violence. They are not able to tolerate the mischief’s of the ‘tiny devils’.They want to punish the wrong doers then and there.
Most of the teachers are of the opinion that the students politics can be kept under control provided the following aspects are given due attention,
1) Providing a good academic atmosphere
2) Cultivating a good team spirit among the students by introducing the concept of working group, discussion etc.,
3) Cultivating good interpersonal relationship by language and activities
4) Modifying the behaviour by award and punishment
5) Encouraging the students by giving special credits for the personal conduct and culture
6) Giving proper counseling with out hurting the ego of the students
7) Cultivating mutual understanding and tolerance of opposition in the minds of the students
Students community of India is going to be responsible for building the future nation . Teachers are mainly responsible for shaping the students community in the proper way . Teachers can accomplish this task marvelously well provided they are given the authority with out any interference from any side in any manner.
The present day students do not seem to be interested in politics at all . According to them the individual freedom and democracy are not given due importance in any political party. The students community is not prepared to sacrifice the individual freedom and the democracy There may be many other reasons as well. However students are not interested in entering into the real politics. Teachers in general are very happy about this. Most of the teachers are of the opinion that the present day students are brighter, more courageous, more self-confident and more considerate. If suitable opportunities are given to them they can perform better and they can become professional in a shorter period of time – shorter than the time their elders took .According to the teachers, the students politics can be kept under control provided the following aspects are given due attention,1) Providing a good academic atmosphere
2) Cultivating a good team spirit among the students by introducing the concept of working group, discussion etc.,
3) Cultivating good interpersonal relationship by language and activities
4) Modifying the behaviour by award and punishment
5) Encouraging the students by giving special credits for the personal conduct and culture
6) Giving proper counseling with out hurting the ego of the students
7) Cultivating mutual understanding and tolerance of opposition in the minds of the students
On the whole Teachers want their students to hold good positions and to contribute their might to make the country a stronger and richer one.

For...
1) On our first year of college We,our class students gathered few articles and published as a magazine. Unfortunatly that was the last one too.
2)VERY VERY few.....Infact in our system of education the teacher posting is not valued much.Infact in my School days when some asked what i wanted to become...I said Teacher.But they weren't quiet impressed & my Dad's friend who happened to be Justice said "In INDIA you really dont wanna pick that option ,dear!Better change your Mind" That really is sensible isn't it? Actually we must have a BOARD that qualifies a person Psychologically,Emotionally,Academically if he/she is capable of Handling & being a GOOD teacher
3)Exhibit?BIG WORD....... What exactly does that word propose in this context :) Give me some clue..... Bye.
