Even as the state government has shortlisted the candidates for the vice-chancellorship, the university is eagerly waiting for its new Vice-Chancellor. The government has failed to appoint a new incumbent as the previous Vice-Chancellor, Dr Jai Rup Singh, quit the university after his appointment as Vice-Chancellor of the central university in the state, which is coming up at Bathinda. At present, Anjali Bhawra, secretary, higher education, Punjab, is university's acting Vice-Chancellor.

Students need proper counselling
Amarinder Sandhu

Couselling is the need of the hour. Counselling is not about providing a solution to the problems; rather it is providing a direction towards a solution for the problem. At times guidance and counselling are used synonymously, but guidance is a wider term and counselling is an important part of guidance.

Earlier the need for counsellors was not felt as teachers fulfilled this role. The student-teacher ratio was less and students turned to the teacher for advice. There was not much bombardment of information, and competition in the career market was limited. The joint family was an excellent place for rearing children where all the emotional needs were met. With the break-up of the joint family system and both parents having equally demanding jobs, the child needs someone to communicate with. School-going children are vulnerable and seek the help of the counsellor when they cannot manage on their own.

Most educational institutes have qualified counsellor and the students can visit the counsellor without hesitation. It is not as if they are going to visit the "shrink". A counsellor is a person who listens to the students without providing them with readymade answers. Rather he just points out the direction. The most important virtue of the counsellor has to be confidentiality. Students come to the counsellor regarding problems pertaining to careers, education and interpersonal relations. Some students complain that they cannot concentrate, while others need assistance to deal with family and`A0social relations, develop a communication pattern and cope with drug abuse and alcoholism. Some learners need to deal with peer pressure while others need counselling regarding their health status.

The growing up and "coming of age" years are a period of "storm and stress". Along with physical and hormonal changes, the learner also has to cope with the increased pressure of studies. He needs someone who can lend him a "listening ear" and not just a "hearing ear". These days the emotional quotient of the students is very low and this is one aspect on which`A0all counsellor have to work on. The learners need emotional security and generally approach the counsellor in case of a family problem meaning separation of`A0the parents. No hesitation is felt in approaching the counsellor. At the school level, students of Classes VI and VII approach the counselllor seeking help with time management, confidence in speaking English and personality development. Girls approach the counsellor more often with issues like dating, being too thin or fat and the latest fad of size zero.

Regular parent-teacher meetings are an excellent way to work for the betterment of the child. Personal hygiene, aggressive behaviour, bedwetting till a late age and faulty interpersonal relations are topics of discussion that have come up from time to time. The child is counselled to resolve them. Amanpreet Kaur, a Chandigarh-based counsellor, feels that "at time it is the parents who need counselling. With an authoritarian attitude the millennium child gets alienated. The counsellor has to work hard to establish a rapport between the child and the parents".

Educational institutes can go a long way in helping the students. Regular workshops with qualified resource persons need to be organised to highlight current issues and offer strategies to cope with them. Another very important topic which parents and students alike need to be sensitised to is taking bad results in their stride. This can go a long way in stopping the spate of suicides that occur when the results are declared. Online counselling is also offered by some organisations and child helplines are a boon. With counseling, a student is able to integrate his personality and develops a communication pattern to fulfil his social role expectations and improve social relations.

Making all children study
M. P. Singh

MUCH has been said and written about the globalisation of education at the university and international market levels. The advantages to be gained in teaching quality, research, better collaboration for mutual benefit and understanding of international community, etc., are not refutable. The new UPA Government and HRD Minister Kapil Sibal, too, have talked about need to internationalise teaching and research which is to be taken up at universities and higher institutions of learning. Nevertheless, in the Indian context, cost effectiveness and smallness of population which will benefit from exchange programmes and MOUs being signed with foreign universities are factors to be kept in mind. Racial assaults, such as the recent happenings in Australia, should also be kept in mind when considering the business of globalisation and the problem of brain drain of the Indian community, which cannot be wished away.

In the field of education, the government will have to set out its priorities and perhaps the first to be tackled shall be removal of illiteracy. The universalisation of education shall take priority over globalisation because the evil of illiteracy is deep rooted. The British coined the slogan of 3 ‘R’s’ and projected their fake effort at educating Indians. Thomas Macaulay (1835) and Charles Wood (1854) talked of creating departments of education in provinces and funding of Presidency Universities at Bombay, Calcutta and Madras, but did nothing for promoting elementary and middle-level school education. As such elementary education was never made compulsory in India, even though politically oriented Indian leaders, who considered education a national need, were critical of the British Government’s education policy and rejected it on the basis of lack of advancement of the common man.

After Independence, it was increasingly realised that if education had to be spread among the masses, it should be made compulsory up to a particular level, at least up to primary level. However, over six decades after Independence, the achievement is not conclusive. The architects of the Indian Constitution debated the issue of making basic education a fundamental right, but they were content to make it a directive principle of state policy. The reason was that out of 35 crore population at that time, seven crore were children in the age group of 6 to 14 years, whose compulsory education could not be managed in the infant democracy due to other priority areas. Growing more food and creation of employment opportunities took priority over health and education. After six decades, the seven crore children have grown to 20 crore, while the problem of illiteracy has grown almost three fold. Belatedly but daringly, the Right to Education Bill was debated in 2002 and the Constitution was amended to make free and compulsory education a fundamental right of the children in the 6-14 age group. The government in 2006 for lack of matching resources rejected the Bill and children were again rendered helpless. The Manmohan Singh’s government took the initiative to take the bill forward in 2008 and got it passed by the Rajya Sabha in October the same year.

The Bill looks impressive on paper, but its implementation is not easy because global assertions appear to have been sidelined. Free primary education is not only written in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights but is also embodied in the basic constitutional documents of all developing and third world countries. The Declaration of the Right of the Child proclaimed by the UN General Assembly, too, advocates the Right of the Child to Free and Compulsory Education at least up to elementary stages, with a view to enable the child to develop his moral and social responsibility and to enable all children become useful members of society. To fulfil this national obligation, on October 1, 2006, the government took the initiative in the right direction by new provisions of the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act by directing that the children will not be engaged in any form of work at the cost of their right to education. The Prime Minister appealed to the citizens to stop employing children as workers and to actively encourage them to join schools. Unfortunately, it was decided that erring parents could be imprisoned for one year for not obeying these instructions. This made the fundamental right to education inoperative.

Now, the government has adopted new measures, which among other things make the state and not the parents responsible for implementation of the law. Matching resources for implementing the law will also be provided both by the state and the Centre on the 50:50 cost-sharing basis, as education is both a state and a Centre subject. The Bill will be taken up during the Monsoon Session of Parliament. With this, universalisation of education can be achievable as much as globalisation.

Campus Notes
Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar
Waiting for a new Vice-Chancellor

Even as the state government has shortlisted the candidates for the vice-chancellorship, the university is eagerly waiting for its new Vice-Chancellor. The government has failed to appoint a new incumbent as the previous Vice-Chancellor, Dr Jai Rup Singh, quit the university after his appointment as Vice-Chancellor of the central university in the state, which is coming up at Bathinda. At present, Anjali Bhawra, secretary, higher education, Punjab, is university's acting Vice-Chancellor.

While the teaching staff is hoping for a Vice-Chancellor with a teaching background, the non-teaching employees are urging the government to appoint Vice-Chancellor from the university itself, preferably someone with administrative capabilities. The state government has also sought the advise of the former Vice-Chancellor.

Meanwhile, the posts of registrar; dean, colleges; director, research; finance and development officer; controller, examination; director, press and publication; and director, PRO, have been lying vacant for the past few months. It is pertinent to mention that the dean, students' welfare, is officiating as director, research, and also taking classes. The director, youth welfare, had been on extension for several months. Interestingly, Dr Raghbir Singh, dean, academic affairs, has also been officiating registrar.

According to sources, the university has five posts of deputy registrars and only one such official is working as other had retired long back. This has greatly marred the efficiency of the university, which is one of the premier universities of the region.

Entrance test

The entrance test for the journalism and mass communication (MJMC) course run by the university on its campus and on the regional Campus, Ladhewali, will be held on July 8, 2009.

According to, Dr Kamlesh Singh Duggal, head, Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, the sample papers for the test were available in the department and its website www.gndudjmc.com. The prospectus is available on the university campus as well as on the regional campuses, Jalandhar and Gurdaspur, he added.

Dr Duggal said the last date for the submission of application form was July 3 and the entrance test would comprise of a written test, group discussion and an interview. He said the selection would be based on merit. The basic eligibility is graduation in any stream with at least 50 per cent marks, he added.

Seminar on rural India

The two-day national seminar on "Information Access Initiatives and Rural India" organised by Bhai Gurdas Library of the university under the aegis of the Indian Council of Social Sciences Research (ICSSR), New Delhi, concluded here recently. More than 170 participants from all over India participated in the seminar, while about 70 research papers were presented during the seminar.

Dr P. B. Mangla, former professor and dean, University of Delhi, delivered the keynote address. The eminent scholar of library science said the rural India was largely illiterate, with literacy rate being 65.38 per cent (Census 2001). Any programme, which is implemented in 100 or 1000 villages, can hardly make any difference to the economy of India or that of the rural people, he added.

Dr Mangla suggested that the scholars of library science should do an in-depth study of revolutions and their impact on society. This could help them understand the real impact of revolutions. He also exhorted the library professionals to make the maximum use of modern technology for the spread of information and preservation of rare documents.

Anjali Bhawra, acting Vice-Chancellor and secretary, higher education, Punjab, presided over the function and delivered the inaugural address.
