Research On A Stonewall

As long as TISS is allowed to play its role, it should be fine but it can't be expected to act as an activist.

As far as I can make out from where I am now (the Sardar Sarovar dam), all is well at TISS. The academic council, I am told, stands firmly behind the director. I am also told by impartial people in the know that nothing has come out of the review. It is possible that some people are upset because so many changes have taken place in the institute in such a short time. Some changes are inevitable; changing times also prompt changes. Not everyone is dissatisfied and the quality has not suffered yet. It will take some time to get adjusted to additional courses and diversity of subjects, I guess.

This deemed university has often been helpful in conflict areas; it may not have always succeeded but by their fieldwork and research, by interventions and interactions, it has generally acted as a bridge between conflict zones and government. Through their conferences, critical issues have been raised and brought into the national consciousness. Contributions made by TISS therefore cannot be undervalued.
