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 !
As per media reports , Mamata Banerjee aka Didi Government has found a solution to control rapes in the state hence The Excise Department has disallowed (LCL) Late Closure Licenses to night-clubs for the coming month.
The late night alleged rape of a 37-year-old woman in a moving car , highlighted the fact that the incident took place while returning from a popular city night-club, at around 1:30 am and even the victim got friendly with the accused in the night-club itself.
How much will Mamata Banerjee be blamed ?
Initially, Didi gave a statement in haste, declaring the incident as fabricated and when proved true she was also criticized badly. And with 6 incidents of rape in a months time, coming in limelight, the TMC supremo seems getting deeper into controversies with her statements.Ban on late-night clubbing may have invited criticisms to the Bengal Chief Minister from Party Animals of the city.
However, it is not just the city of Kolkata and the Late-Night Party Lovers who are at risk but every woman and at any time of the day is unsafe in Bengal and in India. Face it! No city in India is safe. Highlighting Kolkata suddenly just because of change in Government would not be fair. Were the people of Bengal living perfectly under the Left rule? Had it been so, TMC would not have replaced them! The number of rapes reported in Bengal, in a month may equal Delhi’s weekly or may be daily numbers of similar crime. How many times do people question and criticize Sheila Dixit? Should Mamata Banerjee not be given a fair chance to take proper control of things rather than forced to make comments in haste .
