Swaranjit Savi-a renowned artist and also an alumnus of the college has befittingly given artistic touch to these pages.

“Jang to khud hi ek masla hai ,jang kiya maslon ka hal degi.

Aag aur khoon aaj bakshegi, bhookh aur ahtiaj kal daigi .

Is liye ai shareef insano jang talti rahe to behtar hai,

hum sabhi ke angan mein shamma jalti rahe to behtar hai” .

(War itself is a tedious problem before the world; it does not give any solution to the problem.Fire of destruction and blood are its consequences today. Hunger and deprivation it brings tomorrow. So, listen oh gentlemen, it is better if the war is avoided, it is better if the lamps keep lighting in our homes.)

PEF Strongly Rejects New National Education Policy

  Principal Tarsem Bahia Explained Each and Every Point 

: 18th December 2020: (Education Screen Bureau)::

Punjab Educationists’ Forum (PEF) strongly rejects the anti-people, anti-poor, communal character of New National Education Policy. PEF organized almost dozens seminar in Punjab when proposals of NEP was introduced and we sent detailed suggestions to alter the policy to make it pro-people and pro-poor. But NEP policy was passed without taking care of the suggestions sent by different educational bodies and educationists. We have organized seminars in different parts of Punjab to highlight the damages which will occur if it policy be implemented in present form. We also sent these suggestions to Punjab government too. Taking note of our suggestions Punjab Government took note of it Chief Secretary Mr. Suresh Kumar suggested Principal Secretary Higher Education Mr. Rahul Bhandari and Special Secretary S. Paramjit Singh to call us for detailed discussions. The office bearers of PEF were invited and meeting was took place on December 15 at Chandigarh. The following important issues were discussed and we were able to convince the officials of higher education and they assured us to take care of the public interests while implementing the NEP.

A deputation of Punjab Educationists’ Forum led by Principal Tarsem Bahia (President of Forum) accompanying by Dr Surjit Singh (Secretary) and Dr Kuldip Singh (General Secretary) was invited by Principal Secretary Higher Education S. Rahul Bhandari and Special Secretary/DPI Colleges S. Paramjit Singh met on December 15 at Chandigarh and discussed various issues pertaining to higher education in Punjab and importantly the fall outs of New National Education Policy. The response and attitude of the authorities was quite constructive and sympathetic towards issues raised by us

One of the recommendations of New National Education Policy that institutions having student’s strength less than 3000 will be closed resulting which hundreds colleges existing in rural/girls colleges will be in danger, the authorities assured that the existence of rural and girls colleges will be taken care constructively. 

The issue regarding the establishment of autonomous colleges without affiliation to any University was also discussed and authorities assured to maintain the status quo of already existing institutions.

 The issue regarding the existence of single faculty colleges like B Ed colleges was also discussed where authorities assured to resolve it by constituting high powered committee in near future. 

Restoration of Benefits of Security of Service to teachers working on unaided posts in aided colleges and teachers working in un-aided colleges. Already they were protected up to 2007 by Punjab Security of Service Act 1974 but it was amended in 2007 which ultimately withdrew the security of service and it encourages victimization of teachers around 60 teachers were suspended/ terminated in colleges recently.

The issue of recruitment of vacant posts of Assistant Professors and Principals in Government colleges was discussed and authorities assured to make the recruitment as early as possible. The issue of special financial package to Punjabi University Patiala was discussed and response was sympathetic.  

The forum further blasted the anti-farmer character of the three agricultural acts of Modi government and decided to lend all support to the ongoing kisan agitation in New Delhi. The forum further exposed the anti- labor character of the newly adopted labor code by Government of India which in fact meant assault on democratic rights of the working class .The forum felt that all patriotic democratic patriotic sections of people should come together to meet challenges of time. Taking serious note of these acts and policies forum feels that Centre Government is working for the safe guards and interests of Big Industrial Houses and Corporates.

 The forum does demand to form a Higher Education Regulatory Commission in Punjab in tune with State of Himachal Pradesh to ensure appropriate standards of admission, teaching, examinations, research and protection of the interests of students. Because the present higher education policies of Punjab are promoting commercialization and privatization of Higher Education in Punjab which is resulting the mushrooming of Private Universities (Around 30 universities in small state of Punjab).  

Protection of Democratic Governance in Panjab University Chandigarh (Senate Elections) The elections of Senate was due in the month of September 2020 but was deferred in garb of COVID-19. The VC is taking important decisions with getting it approved from the highest body Syndicate. The present working of the University is against the University Act of Punjab. The BJP led center Govt and present VC is bent upon to dismantle it by alternating it with Board of Governors. The Panjab University Teachers’ Association has been staging dharna in front of VC residence since a long and also demanding long pending CAS and holding early elections of Senate. PEF has decided to join their Dharna  to show solidarity  on December 21 at PU Chandigarh

Hike in tuition fee for MBBS course should be withdrawal

 14th December 2020 at 4:54 PM

 Doctors demand withdrawal of this increase in tuition fee in medical colleges 

Ludhiana: 14th December 2020: (Education Screen Bureau)::

The Alliance of Doctors for Ethical Healthcare (ADEH) has condemned steep rise in the tuition fee for MBBS courses. The Haryana government has announced increased by 24.5% in the tuition fee by the private medical colleges. After this MBBS course will cost nearly 54 lakh rupees and additional charges of hostel and books etc. Dr G S Grewal former President Punjab Medical Council (PMC) and Dr. Arun Mitra, former Chairman Ethical committee PMC and members of core committee ADEH have demanded withdrawal of this increase. With such type of decisions not only the poor but the middle class families will not be able to send their wards to the medical colleges. This is a reflection of overall approach of the government towards the medical education. This approach is in total contravention to the need for universal health care to the people of the country. In spite of fact that government is fully aware that there is tremendous shortage of doctors, instead of making it affordable for common students with good marks, this decision is a message to poor and middle class students not to dream to be a doctor.   

Government is well advised to invest in health and medical education and make education extremely affordable and withdraw its decision. Such a decision by one state government gives alibi to other states to follow the suit.

Such persons have been kept in the isolation centres set up by the Punjab government so that they do not come in direct contact with other people as well as their family members.

A student named Ashish Rana said that earlier he used to spend most of his time studying, but now he has a lot of extra time, that he is using by reading holy Bhagavad Gita because it gives him mental peace. All the students also thanked the Punjab government for bringing them safely back home and providing them home and hostel like atmosphere at this isolation centre. They also appealed to other people staying in isolation centres to spend their time in constructive activities and by keeping a positive mind.

As many as 60 teachers connected and discussed their first-hand experience of conducting classes via Zoom, Google Classroom, WhatsApp chat, and calls. They brought to the fore the advantages and difficulties faced.
Prof. (Dr.) Ashwani Bhalla laid emphasis on devising ways through which students could be evaluated and assessed. In the present state of uncertainty, we cannot just wait while the situation returns to normalcy. We should keep our work ready to meet and respond to any policy that the Government or the University comes up with. He discussed the conduct of examinations for final year students  through 2 modes-online and through internal assessment by the teacher. Since the teacher knows the caliber of the student, she / he is the best judge of the student. The online method is not feasible as a large number of our students are either from rural areas or they belong to financially weaker sections of society . As such they do not have good access to strong internet connectivity.
Dr. Tanvir Sachdev from the department of English advised about  preparing and delivering lectures through You Tube. She stressed upon the need to approach the syllabus in a systematic way, adapting ourselves to the need of the time.
Prof. Deepak Chopra from the department of Physics pointed  out difficulties regarding  practical subjects which can only be taught in a laboratory. He generously appreciated those teachers of the college who have been on pandemic duty since 26.3.2020.

A  short film on the culture of Tamil Nadu was also screened for the volunteers. A turban tying workshop was also organised by an old student. Dr. Harblas Heera conducted a group activity with the students. It was followed by a lecture by Dr. Ravi Inder Singh. Dr. Ravi Inder was introduced by the  Principal Dr. Dharam Singh Sandhu who informed the students that he is the Director of Panjab University Regional Centre and Resident Coordinator who has written 2 books and 20 research papers in various national and international journals. Dr. Ravi Inder talked about the role of an individual in nation building. He stressed on the fact that the youth are the game changers. He raised another question on different parameters used to guage the development of the nation. Human development index, ease of business and internal peace were discussed. He said," We were shreshth, we have deteriorated. You! The youth can only make or break this nation." He made a startling connection between success and social service. He defined success by way of saint Kabir ji's doha
"Jab hum aye jagat mei, Jag Hansa; hum roye;
Aisi krni kar chlo, hum hanse; Jag roye." 
This is not possible without taking care of  society. If you are self centered, you can never taste this kind of success. You may become a billionaire but you may not be truly successful. Reward from economic activities may take you to higher levels but social work has much more strength and the reward and recognition from society is much more. Prof. Harmeet thanked Dr. Ravi Inder for motivating the students and a token of appreciation was presented to the guest. NSS Incharge Prof Sumeet Brar, Prof Paramjit Chander, Prof Arun Kumar and Prof. Vishal were also present and supervising the volunteers.
