For the last few years, the B.A. (Honours) Political Science programme has emerged as the top choice for students seeking admission in undergraduate programmes at Delhi University.

This high demand bachelor programme reflects as the high cut-offs across colleges and seats being filled to capacity early as the admissions for unreserved seats in the programme have been closed in 13 DU colleges.

The first cut-off of both Hindu and Ramjas College of Delhi University was 100% this year while 10 colleges of Delhi University had the first cut-off of 99% or above. The cut-off of Lady Shri Ram College for Women was 100% last year which was also the highest first cut-off in 2019 at Hindu College.

The fruitful changes in syllabus, pattern and course curriculum in the last few years are the top reason behind the programme’s popularity among the students.

Hena Singh, a political science department teacher at Miranda House which had its highest first cut-off of 99.75%, told the Indian Express that the introduction of applied papers of contemporary relevance and restructuring in the pattern of UPSC examinations a few years ago have contributed to this surge in popularity.

Tanvir Aeijaz, another teacher in the Political Science department at Ramjas College suggested that the course is also a top choice for students who want to study law after completing their graduation. He also suggested that there has been the introduction of a lot of applied papers such as public policy, international relations, as well as optional papers such as Public Opinion and Survey Research which helps in political research, which is in demand.

Even an interdisciplinary area like feminism is an important part of the DU Political Science programme. With liberalization, globalization and market expansion, there are so many choices for students to explore with this background.

The students consider the course easier than other popular B.A. (Honours) programmes such as Economics which involves mathematics both as a qualification and as an important part of the programme, and English.

Rae Bareli schoolgirl sweeps floor in school, social media furious at child labour

The photograph is said to be from a government school in Janeva Katra village (Rae Bareli). Children don’t go to schools to sweep the classroom floor instead learn about the world through the syllabus. It is but obvious that the school staffer who had the girl sweep the floor is due for some harsh words and some punishment.

Rae Bareli schoolgirl sweeps floor in school

With voters in Karnataka turning away from the BJP in the recent Assembly elections, the apathy shown in schools can snowball into a challenge for the Uttar Pradesh government. In the most recent incident, a schoolgirl from Rae Bareli was seen sweeping the floor in a school instead of studying.

The photograph is said to be from a government school in Janeva Katra village (Rae Bareli). Children don’t go to schools to sweep the classroom floor instead learn about the world through the syllabus. It is but obvious that the school staffer who had the girl sweep the floor is due for some harsh words and some punishment.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s much-vaunted Beti Padhao Beti Bachao scheme has often been ridiculed for the lax implementation of such lofty schemes on the ground in a state that has not turned away from its feudal, casteist past. The double-engine sarkar’s achievements are thus slighted by such incidents. As a result, the photo has gone viral on Twitter.

On social media, there is a free-for-all in responses and comments to the picture. One user said such a condition will always remain until and unless someone has the courage to raise their voices against the authorities concerned. Another person commented that such an issue should be raised in the gram panchayat since non-availability of cleaning staff is a local issue. Another man suggested that the school teacher or master teaching in the school should let their own children be taught in the same school so that conditions improve.

Although the government is riding high on the success of Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao, the image tells a different story altogether. Instead of books, these children are being handed over brooms and set to work.

Recently, another video had surfaced online showing a girl student sweeping the floor in school uniform.
