Its still a controversy in Kerala, whether students in schools and colleges should practise politics. Politics in Shools upto higher secondary schools have been banned in Kerala by court order. More over, in colleges, the management can take decisions whether elections should be conducted on political party basis in their campuses. In kerala what actually happens is political parties have strong hold over the student's political organisations and they are using the students for their own political issues. The youth have plenty of energy. The political parties are effectively using these energy. And in the end, 60% of the accademic year will be filled with strikes, protests and violence. The main argument from the side of party based student's organizations is that the youth should learn how to participate in the Government making. But is that correct? If I want to become a lawyer should I learn how to construct a bridge. No, students who are interested in such activities should find place for it outside the campus. The first and last duty of a student is to study and study only.
We have learned the theory behind "hydrogen balloon flying against the gravity" as well as "hydrogen bomb". We may have gone through a practical session to produce hydrogen, and may have experienced the fun of flying a hydrogen balloon. But never should we have a practical with "hydrogen bomb". Politics is a bomb. We have enough lessons about the Constitution and Government as well as history of India and Worl history.
The other argument is that, if students are banned from political actvities in schools and colleges, they will turn out to be silent against any unlawful activities of the government and institution management. But what really happens when politics is allowed, is that students are losing their creativity and becoming tools in the hand of political parites and they are rasing sound for something which they really don't know. Please STOP STUDENT'S POLITICS in Kerala.
