Ragging - another side of social menace

The menace of ‘Ragging’ is so much that hardly anyone can believe that there is any positive effect is involved in the whole process of getting to know each other in due course of time. Especially, if the candidate is staying away from his/ her home town and going to pursue professional course, it is a long time-healing process, which can’t be said to be vanished once the candidate gets promoted into next session. Those who are staying in hostel premises can feel the benefits in long term, considering the ‘mental’ toughness checking need not go into any physical, psychological and emotional turmoil of the candidate.

I’d experience the ‘ragging’ while studying engineering at bachelor label in Bangalore and it is first time I came to know the seniors from almost many all major states. Though, the primary link was based upon either room-mates, state-mates, batch-mates, the ultimate language, cultural barrier seems to be eliminated once we came close with other state seniors in the process of ‘ragging’. There was no boundary of any state and any senior can get information from any body in the campus specially hostelites.

Even today I’m in touch with many seniors from other states including my batch-mates. So, if the thing are taken in positive way, ‘ragging’ can be quiet fun and its memory are definitely keeps one smiling in future. To overcome the fear of new-comers, the toll-free no. is 18001805522 from any part of the country can be accessed by anyone and necessary help can be sought.

Mind your English please...and its hard to take your view into consideration especially when one doesn't understand what you're trying to say....but unlike your view Ragging isn't good at all.
