I have not updated this journal in a really long time. I have changed a lot in this period. Life is bigger than I am. The world is bigger than me. May be I am trying to escape from my reality; hoping to change the world.

I finally fell in love with TISS. After hating it for a year and hating everything related to it. I have finally started liking TISS. It has changed me in ways I could never imagine. I dont know if this change is good or bad. But I am seeing things in a new light. Cannot really explain what I feel. But it feels good.

The third semester has been the craziest 4 months of my life. I barely slept, worked my ass off (literally) studying and it was totally worth it. Made some close friends. Spent all night studying and made the most I could. Over all I loved it.

It is really sad that now that I like it, the course is alomost over. Will miss it... I think...

There has been another case of on campus sexual harassment at the reputed TISS. This time an Assistant Professor has sexually harassed a new student (courses began about 15 days ago). I still do not know the nature of the case. And the case has not yet been filed with the Gender Amity Cell / Committee against Sexual Harassment or the Police.

About 5 years back a child was molested on the TISS campus by a TISS functionary. The case was hushed up.

A institute that claims to be the premier Institute for Social Work and vouches for its repute takes sexual harassment in such a casual manner! They offer courses in womens studies and Women Centred social work, but what are they doing to protect people on their very campus. Placing watchmen at each hostel entrance and restricting entry is not security. Feeling safe is! Knowing that the institue will support you in the case you were violated and not turn on you is security.

I will agree that the institute extended every kind of support possible to the student who was raped. However, the institute did so only after the news was out in the paper and initially completely denied the case. Their first proclamation was that the rapists were not 'our students' and then they went to talk about the victim.

If a social work institute fails to ignore the perspective of women within its walls, how do they even talk about structural changes. How do they even offer courses in Womens studies.

All facebook groups and links of the pink chaddi campaign and the 'consortium of pub-going, lose and forward women' have been taken off facebook. Why? Right wing believers flagged the group. In addition to that the user account of the creator of the group has also been deleted.

Question: Who patrols the internet? Is the internet truly providing a space for all? or Is the Internet also being patrolled? If yes, by who all and how?

Although, I do have my own explanations for these questions, I am wondering who decides what can be censored and what cannot? (On the internet i.e.)

I am not going to let other people bother me.
I am dedicated and hardworking and if things dont always work out fine. Its not my fault. I just happen to be studying at a place that is the most disorganised post grad institute.

I can say that I am effin Pissed! When the time-table says that we have class at 2:00pm. How the fuck does the class happen at 12:00pm. Its like they are the just bloody irritating.

So, Cheers, to the new year at TISS.

Its fucking hell already

I have got this horrible headache.
I practically binged my way through the day. Now I feel sick. Slept for a good part of the day. But my head still hurts.
