Garba Garbad at CEPT: Part II

October 11, 2013

Till yesterday there was some hope, at least for students as Garba continued on a small scale, only for ‘insiders’ i.e. students and faculty.

Now that the Garba is cancelled ‘on account of heavy rains’ and the stage dismantled, all one can do is to contend with rumors and half truths. One of them stating that the student’s councils refused to shoulder the burden of any controversy and carry on with the Garba and so it is called off.

Already there is shock and anger over faking of passes: @

If the stories doing rounds are true, then someone couldn’t hold their drink, and misbehaved. If true, it raises many questions on how the growing big/ growing up process is going to be painful for CEPT. Also, there are incredible stories about someone misbehaving with some very important persons (a concept properly understood only in India) and also about students carrying prohibited substances into the campus (that part is credible, to tell the truth) So notably, being rounded up for that.

The ownership, liberties, and casualness with which campus life has carried on for the past years will and ought to change, with growth in numbers and statutes. Bigger things are at stake, both from students’ side, as well as from those who have the responsibility to run the show. Just hoping both parties would become more responsible as they go along, and nurture the spirit that supported this place for all this while, without losing the responsibility that the future is placing on them.

If any or all of the hushed stories be true, these are the troubles of coming of age, I hope. And also, I wish Garba is not sacrificed because of individual stupidities or systemic lapses…
