Applying for the post of VC in a Haryana university
My friend Dr SB Dahiya few days back sent me an advertisement inviting applications for the post of vice-chancellor in a Haryana university.

The applicants had been asked to send a demand draft for rupees five hundred along with the application. Dahiya asked me that wasn't it insulting for a distinguished scholar to apply for the post and that too with a fee and then being interviewed by a search committee comprising of so-called educationists?

Can anybody imagine a distinguished scholar applying? If the government sincerely wants to have distinguished VCs then the search committee consisting of distinguished scholars be requested to search and approach distinguished scholars to head the university with no interference by the state and its bureaucrats.

Is it possible in the present political scenario? Certainly not, as VCs are appointed with some considerations such as ideology and caste etc. and off late after paying money also. The million dollar question is how many distinguished scholars are presently heading the universities in Haryana?
