Jairam Ramesh has certainly stirred up an endangered hornet’s nest with his comment on the quality of research and the faculty in the IITs. I think he is being unfair.
Not at all, I think this was a first class comment, in fact, he’s put his head in the tiger’s mouth.
Kapil Sibal can be described as many things, but tiger doesn’t spring to mind. I think Jairam was hoping to create a buzz in his old stomping grounds.
I certainly hope that the IITs feel the sting a bit. The teaching could certainly do with more teeth. It’s a good thing that Jairam bared his fangs at them a bit.
He probably thinks they are white elephants in this day when educational institutions are as streamlined as cheetahs.
Well, he’ll certainly never change his spots when it comes to tearing a strip off others. Wish he’d do the same with his own wildlife institutions.
Maybe he should take the bull by the horns and take over the human resource development ministry in the next reshuffle.
Yes, we do need some biodiversity in the cabinet.
Do say: He’s caught the tiger by the tale
Don’t say: Cat got your tongue?
