As per the calendar, the Jawaharlal Nehru University November was the month when the university was to celebrate the golden jubilee of the institution named it “Jas-e-JNU” as the fitting closer to 2019. Jawaharlal Nehru University is said to be celebrating its five-decade existence disgustingly as a premier university with the unique model of interdisciplinary research and teaching.
Reasons for the university and the question by the university are worrying about the state
Even today, the JNU’s reputation as a university is reluctantly acknowledged for the simultaneous production of establishment and anti-establishment intellectuals. The politician of all persuasions, critical scholars, and activities has equally emerged for its rank in case the civil servant, journalists, and teachers are counted amongst its alumni.
The contradictory impulses have given JNU its public purpose and direction to sustain societal structures and processes and while simultaneously imagining alternatives. The university has come across a relatively rare process in the university ecosystem that is the deliberative process for assuring prospective students a degree of fairness and transparency.
JNU has been a residential university with a difference since its inception. The university was imagined and has been sustained over the last half-century as a genuine alternative to some aspects of life outside the university. The university student body enjoyed a more significant than usual role in determining institutional presence. The university has managed to sustain and protect over the decades by its two significant achievements.
The two significant achievements of the university are the resetting of gender hierarchies, which is very rare in the society as the society has been deeply scarred by violence against women, misogyny, and the women harassment. Unusual high participants of the student body have sustained the achievements in the conduct of the administration of the university at all levels.
