"Narayana Junior College"-the hell down under


Intermediate course-i can NEVER ever forget this phase of my life.

It all began after the ssc results were declared.I was pretty happy with my result and glad that i got into this college with 75% scholarship(i must say,fee concession is really a smart way of attracting students and parents).I had no idea that it wasn't just a college(i realized later that it was more of a Narayana Central Jail).The other side of the college was yet to come.
In the beginning,as any other normal student of my ,i put my heart and soul in studies.I worked really hard and tried to score maximum marks.My interest,determination and everything were at its peak.But then all this lasted only for a couple of months.In the beginning the college timings were from 8am to 5.30pm.After few weeks,they made it till 6pm and finally,after the formation of the FTB(so called "fast track batch"...eventually it turned out to be the"faltu track batch") it was 7am to 7pm.Seriously,i didn't know what was the point in studying for 12 hours daily when the exams were 18 months away! But this was just the beginning,the trailer.

After the formation of FTB,life became miserable.There were no holidays,not even sundays,no bandhs nothing!Even if anyone took leave because of ill health or something,they were not spared.The non-teaching staff would call them and if possible would go their home and pick them up! Whenever the phone rang,when i was on leave,i would skip a heart beat or two.We used to write a test daily,rather one in every class!Marks were evaluated and those who scored less were given a lecture on how irresponsible they were and how much the sirs were working hard for them.Life was horrible.Being good at studies became a punishment.Before coming to this place,i never knew such people even existed in the world.Gosh! And they call themselves teachers! The very meaning of education is forgotten here,its all about marks and tests.These people are only interested in making money,using bright students as their pawns.This went on for two long years!Shuffling of students was constantly done depending on their performance in weekly tests.Those who did well were subjected to special treatment rather creative torture.Corporate colleges are nothing but a new kind of business venture with the only aim of making money.They are least bit bothered about the effect it has on the kids.No wonder so many innocent kids end their lives every year,unable to bear this torture.You may find it exaggerating but you'll not understand unless you've been through all this.Many of the students get over this but few are hugely affected.Many of them lose interest in studies(even their fav subjects).

So,what's the result of all this?...Do you get into the IITs or NITs or IIITs?? Well,at the end of the course,if you see the result,it totally depends on how well you do on the d-day.It doesn't matter how much you've studied or for how long you've studied.It doesn't matter if you've spent sleepless nights,studying for the exam.It doesn't depend on your intelligence either.You may do fairly better than others with a bit of confidence,common sense and knowledge of basics.Then what's the difference? Even after working so hard,why do many students fail to achieve their goal? The answer is simple....Firstly,you never know how's the paper's gonna be.It all depends on how better you do it than others......Secondly,You need to have confidence that you can do it,this is the point where many students of corporate colleges fail.The lectures shatter their confidence so well(by insulting them when they don't perform well)that its hard to get over it.The thing remains some
where hidden inside them......So,it hugely affects their performance in the exam.
Then what's the point in studying in these colleges?..Apparently nothing!
Though many of them end up in good colleges(but mostly not in their first priority)...one question still remains unanswered:Is the torture worth it? I say its not! Go and see the students of other states...aren't they getting into the IITs or the NITs...Do they go through this mental torture?..the answer is NO!Its not that they don't work hard or something but they aren't extremists like us.They have balance between studies and extra-curricular activities.The students there,have peace of mind.They have confidence that they can make it.They don't write weekly tests but have a good knowledge of basics.They are taught analytical and lateral thinking.They have common sense and what not!..I believe everyone has the same ability,but not everyone is lucky to have good mentors to mould them correctly.

SO...whose responsible for the suffering of the kids?..whose responsible for the deaths of these innocent kids?....What should be done to avoid such cases?...According to me,the only way to stop this is government action against these colleges.Laws should be made regarding the working hours and the treatment meted out to the students(esp in hostels,where the situation is beyond imagination...they have study hours as late as 11pm and as early as 5am).Parents play a key role in providing moral support to the children.They have to understand the ability of their child and not burden him with high expectations....Unless this is done...there will be no decrease in the number of such incidents...

  2. i agree with u that the college system of the mpc n bpc student sucks n there is no point in studying for hours n hours before the xams.. the only thing matters is that what u do on the d-day as u said ..the brains u apply, the way u manage ur time etc ... i also agree wid u thet govt should take a serious action on the timmings n also i would like to tell that the people in these colleges differentiate the students so much that the student who is weak at his/her studies losses all the interest in his/her studies which is the worst thing that can happen. i wud appreciate if any action is taken on this part also.....n about ur blog i would like to tell that.. it is really gud and it tells the truth......nidhi

  4. wat u said is absolutely true!Lectures care nly abt making money n earning gud name n fame.In this process they don care how de demoralize students driving dem to take up harsh n dangerous decisions.The educational system shud b changed n parents also shud understand the drawbacks of joining their wards in corporate colleges(a.k.a JAILS)!!!!!

  10. Sri Chaitanya is not to be left out. The corporate colleges have tuff competition with each other but the one visible to the public (peole outside) is the work of college in obtaining state and national ranks!! but the real game goes inside the 4 walled compounds of the college where the students face verbal as well as physical torture.
    @sindhu : yeah there is a lot of mugging up stuff, I agree. but the question is who would have had so much patience and is so jobless to type all that materials? Neither does he get the credit behind the work. No author name.

  15. true..!! i am in the first year and opted for mpc..these weekend examinations really suck!! and for the top sections the scenario is entirely different..!! getting less marks even in weekends in these colleges is like committing crime..fed upp!!! even after these ppl give so much stress..there is no difference between a top ranker and a failure in this college coz at the end what matters is the confidence and some basic skills..these colleges suckkk!!!!

  16. I Agree With you!!..and I do believe that the co-orperate colleges are meant for earning the money!! Rather than giving the valuable education to one another!!and one more information i would like to add is the language!! Telugu is widely used within the campus rather than the english! Being a student of Odisha I was not able to follow them for 6 months,even their English also makes us laugh!..So Lets Join hands in Hands in bringing this business to an end., BAN NARAYANA AND SRI CHAITANYA FOR GOOD

  20. I totally agree with the above comments.....But who is going to take action against them? If CM really cares about education he must take action....what if someone address this issue to central level?
    Guys! It's time to do something GOOD

  23. Fuck the system! The teachers here dunno proper English and they come and ruin our english in an english medium college.. I have seen many of my classmates lose their good accent after joining this college.
    And teachers make announcements and insults in Telugu that most of us Kannadigas cannot understand
