his visionto allow its students and faculty precious space for freedom and intellectual adventurestill survives in patchesand is what has earned it such high respect Yeteven in institutions like JNUthe space was highly constricted and seems to have become more so over time Theoreticallyfor examplea student can seek admission to any discipline in JNU irrespective of ones previous disciplinary backgroundif one is able to clear the admission test; and there have been cases where such boundaries were indeed crossed But on the whole the ratio of such cross-discipline admissions would not exceed a fraction of a per cent The boundaries get tighter once admission has been given The faculties are mainly uni-disciplinaryas are the courses; and reaching out to courses in other disciplines is tightly controlled Yetwhenever these controls are relaxedthe results are spectacular Let me cite two such examples Ramya Srinivasan was a young lecturer in English literature in Miranda House when she sought admission to the PhD course in history at JNU with the proposal to work on the evolution of the many legends of Rani Padmini of Chittor over several centuries and in different regions She could not convince the Centre for Historical Studies thatgiven her background in Englishshe would be able to deal with the subject with competence Luckilythe Centre for English was more relaxed and admitted herto be jointly supervised by Professor Minakshi Mukherjee (later Professor JG V Prasad) and me Todayan associate professor of historyshe is the author of an outstanding book on the subjectthat dexterously combines her expertise in literary criticism and historical contextualisation Sumit Ganguli was doing his Masters in medieval history and wanted to opt for a course in human rights Asked the faculty: what has human rights got to do with medieval history But somehow he got permission He pursued the subject further coming back to Chennai as UNHRCs representative Thusjust a little leeway in letting students go beyond the strict rules can produce competence of very high calibre Our students at the university level deserve morerather than lesssuch flexibility And this flexibility needs to be institutionalised But a prime requisite of greater flexibility is the teachers constant engagement in updating as well as widening their own knowledge Failure to do soeven for just three-to-five yearscan leave one a long distance behindgiven the rapidity with which knowledge in each discipline is changing With the very impressive improvement in teachers salaries recentlyit is the libraries and the laboratories that call for immediate and focused attention Thisand some system of rewards for excellence which necessarily also implies absence of rewards for the laggards Nothing damages a system more than its inability to distinguish between energy and lethargy It is a shame that we do not have a mechanism in place even for ensuring regular taking of ones classesmuch less of updating ones knowledge It is hard to imagine greater inhumanity than for a teacher to pass on outdated knowledge to ones unsuspecting students With Sibal in chargeexpectations are highhoping for radical change It will be a great tribute to Nehrus vision to raise the system once again to the stature which he had accorded it Raising of teachers salaries is one major welcome step in that direction;
