THE INTER-HOUSE essay competition was organised during ‘Abhivyakti-2006’ at Christ Church College here today.
The topic for today’s essay competition was ‘How effective is the law against female feticides’. Around 50 students from the four houses namely Westcott, Chatterjee, Douglas and Slater took part in the competition and expressed their views on the topic.
Dr Ashutosh Saxena, convener, co-curricular programmes committee said the topic evoked intense reactions from the participants. The sex selective abortions serve as a new vehicle of India’s traditional anti-female bias. This underlines the general preference for boys in male dominated societies, he said It indeed augured well for the future of this country that the educated youth condemned the practice of female foeticide very vehemently and at the same time cautions that this legislation could become a toothless law unless implemented stringently.
Dr Saxena said reason behind selecting such topics concerning the present scenario was to provide a platform to students to gauge the views and opinions of the students on contemporary and burning issues.
HBTI Kanpur will organiss its tow-day annual cultural festival ‘TAAL-06’ on November 23 and 24.
Around 200 to 250 students are likely to participate in the various cultural events like singing, dancing and instrumental. Mimicry will be the star attraction of the event. HBTI will also organise an inter-collegiate festival ‘Odyssey’ very soon next year. This event would be organised on a large scale in which various engineering colleges from all over India would be invited to show their talents. Hence ‘TAAL-06’ was just the first step for Odyssey.
