Professors in Bengal seem to be having a hard time under the new Government in Bengal. Some days back, a professor was detained by cops and embarrassed by local party leaders for the ‘character assassination’ of the Chief Minister of state which he did via a cartoon and mailed it to few known people !
Now there is professor Debashis Sarkar, who teaches at the government-run Jhargram Raj College in the state’s Midnapore District, has been served notice by the state’s education department and has been asked to explain his recent criticism of the government on local TV channels. 🙁 .
Well, seems like the new government of Bengal is giving a clear indication to professors and teachers that they should better stick to what they are paid for and are good at and leave politics on professionals in the same stream !
