Park street seemed a long way off. Somehow we crossed ourselves in fear and said we're safe at home. 

But this is home now. 

Jadavpur is our home. 
Where do we run from here?

What began as a peaceful apolitical protest for justice turned into a nightmare as Jadavpur University witnessed atrocity that it has never seen before. Under the garb of darkness,"unidentified" policeman walked over student protestors and beat them mercilessly. Male police manhandled female students, groping for them in the dark as the lights were conveniently turned off in Aurobindo Bhaban. Police and party affiliated goons stopped at nothing as they trampled over students, tearing their clothes, beating them even after they were senseless. The VC remained in his office,till police escorted him out, after which he claimed that apparently he was almost "murdered". The violently attacked students were arrested at random and brought under custody,where they remained without medical attention all night. The arrested were released today afternoon and many of them had to be rushed to KPC.

Condemning the VC and police action a rally was organised at 4 pm today from Jadavpur to Golpark. It saw an extraordinary turnout of over 800 people as students, professors, artists and the public came out in support of JU and it's singular fight for justice. The march gained momentum as it walked out of the university gates. Not just students of JU, but it had the attendance of students from Presidency and Ashutosh colleges as well, as the outrage hit the crowds over such barbaric action. Placards and Posters in hand, people walked as one. Their voices were for justice only, as unrelenting as ever. All classes will be boycotted henceforth, till the VC resigns from his post. In light of such events, JU has not backed down and people from other colleges have come forward to lead the movement further. Fear is a potent device, we came to know last night. But we also realised there comes a point when we outlive the fear. "Don't scare them so much, they forget to get scared." That's when the fight begins. And it has begun now.
