Justice is mightier than “Dae-mock-racy”

Justice makes more sense than all constitutions and democracies. Otherwise, most people here would get all those who are different from them beheaded through democratic vote!

As the day of TISF elections for 2009-’10 looms closer, questions still remain unanswered, prime candidates unopposed, decisions unmade and wrong policies unchanged. Neither TIP’s nor TISF’s management apparently feel it needful to answer an important question raised earlier.

Why are the final year students allowed to vote and influence an election whose results will have nothing to do with them? They sell their votes, play with the entire process, and get away with it unaffected. Or they end up voting for the wrong or dummy candidates only for the fun of it!

The argument is simple:

The TISF is funded partly by students. The fourth years have no contribution in the budget of TISF that comes into action after they have left the institute.

Will our management continue to remain silent only because majority of the students are indifferent and apathetic towards raising this issue to rid TIP of something so wrong and unjust? Let’s give the freshmen their chance to vote, instead of ragging them at the start of their academic journey.

Justice makes more sense than all constitutions and democracies.

  1. Bravo! O brave warrior. Hope you are not alone. But then again a single person could awaken the sleeping dragon and defeat it and win the hand of the fair maiden.
    I wish the support necessary to proceed.
    This topic is not new. Two years ago, TISF TRIED but the change was not approved. Last year we Democratically approached the matter and the audience turned a deaf ear.
    Pray lets try again. Review the constitution and propose an addendum.

  2. The constitution is an evolving document designed to suit certain needs of people. Justice or fair play is any person or organization’s foremost requirement, and helps build a better community with a better repute. The constitution has ambiguities, at some points even question marks, literally, “?”, stuff that will need to be clarified sooner or later. Despite that, it has a clause that allows itself to be influenced by the institute’s president or an established person of authority if the need arises.

    okay. So lets take some bucks from them too, before they vote and trod away. Prolly that will make fourth years respect their franchise, what say?
    😉
    management should really look into this lucrative area of possible funds.
    jk!

  4. tell me for the sake of info:

    do the fourth years dont get to spend even one day at TIP under the new elected body?

  5. the point raised here is not only justice seeking but needs to be pondered..the 4th years have nothing at all to do with the new tisf and they get to play with the votes and get someone elected who might not be the right candidate to take over such important seat.and then ultimately remaining people have to suffer

  6. No they don’t. The new body starts functioning the following semester.

    And while we’re at it. What about the rights of the poor freshmen who come in? Shouldn’t they have a say in the student body too. And they even pay for it… literally! And why you ask? To get ragged of course!

  7. ok thats pretty screwed up.

    But I think the management realizes that. Its not about excluding someone or about who pays and who doesn’t ;elections should be scheduled at the start of the new semester, thats it.

    that will settle everything.

  8. Exactly, and that’s the only little change needed. Unfortunately, most people are scared of change. They don’t realize it’s healthy, especially if it’s positively affecting the masses.

  9. yea Furhan i m with u. even we tried to raise this issue when our TISF was in power last year but it was turned down by the ignorant student body who even didnt bother to read the constitution, which took us like two months to complete and meticulously check every point but our bloody students dont even give a damn about anything. you just throw an event and they will love you.

  10. That seems like a fair enough solution. Elections at the beginning of fall will incorporate the freshmen’s say in the selection process.

    And, may I add ‘especially,’ for my friendly neighbor next door, also ensure that the ones who don’t graduate get to vote.

    “the ignorant student body who even didnt bother to read the constitution”

    “took us like two months to complete and meticulously check every point”

    Yeah truly a herculean effort on your part… the constitution (which BTW I read before I was elected) never mentioned anything about the post “Activity Secretary” or what such a position holder would do.

  12. @aasim ahmed

    hey! dnt humor that!
    thats called minority rights’ protection and is a v imp issue!

    😉

  13. for the past 2 years TISF and students have been trying to weaken the influence of the coordinator on TISFs decision ….
    Has it happened??? Has anybody paid a heed on it???
    Seriously dude , before this TISF election commences take a general poll that how many students do want the “involvement” of coordinator in students’ affairs … you will get a clear idea … if this thing happens … I promise (being a 4th year student) that I wont vote this year …
    “Pray lets try again.” (no offence)
