In a conversation with The New Leam Professor Avijit Pathak (CSSS/SSS/JNU) has reflected on the university–its changing academic culture, teacher-taught relationships and the growing anonymity among students. Without understanding this social landscape, Professor Pathak argues, we would not be able to make sense of the tragic suicide of a young Dalit research scholar. He pleads for a new university culture filled with love, compassion and life-sustaining academics.
The New Leam has no external source of funding. For retaining its uniqueness, its high quality, its distinctive philosophy we wish to reduce the degree of dependence on corporate funding. We believe that if individuals like you come forward and SUPPORT THIS ENDEAVOR can make the magazine self-reliant in a very innovative way.
