CONVOCATION IN RAJBHAVAN - A SHAME!

Governor shift Tumkur University Convocation to Rajbhavan for reasons of security and preoccupation at Bangalore. It is the first time that a Convocation is being held outside University Campus and what is more, is being held in Government premises. Anyway, it is a step closer to reality-a state of affairs in Education in States in the country-that it is run more by bureaucrats, politicians and those academicians who are obliged to toe their line for self interest than to the cause of education. Whither autonomy, freedom and self governance for excellence in Education?

I think the convocation of Bangalore University addressed by Dr. Radhakrishnan (in 1965?)was held in the Glass House in Lalbagh.

Yes, but it is not a Governement premise
