My dear article-19

October 22, 2007

Excerpt from a story posted in Manipal Journal on the quality of college fests in Manipal

‘Article 19’ last year, the student council and faculty had to sort out various differences, complaints and protests against the last year’s organizers in the last couple of months; thereby delaying the planning of the event. The official structure of the fest was finalised just last week. The raising of funds has become a major issue as generating sponsors and money through pre-events in such a short time seems like a thoroughly uphill task.

So what is the position as of now..??

Will things ever change?
