    This is a wonderful example how politics can destroy the institutes of higher education and research. The government has a clear cut objective to appoint a faithful person at top and do whatever it wants through the weak and dependent creature to benefit the cadre.

    Anil Wilson had done a marvelous work in his short span of time as VC to improve the quality of faculty. But the team of mediocre took no time to revert the vision of a widely recognized intellectual. State university has kept the faculty busy in politics and made them aspire for top posts filled on the basis of loyalty only.

    Except a few exceptions, most people have no published work in reputed national/international academic journals. Even they claim small write ups in magazines and bulletins as their published articles, when preparing any report for NAAC and UGC.

    Himachal Pradesh University Shimla is perhaps the only example in India where no profile of the faculty members is available on its website. This problem arises only when you have done nothing scientific and original except the politics. Great Brains……sustained from public coffers!
