Delhi University polls: Women safety, regular panchayat in NSUI manifesto

Image result for Delhi University polls: Women safety, regular panchayat in NSUI manifesto New Delhi: Rollback of the Choice Based Credit System, a body for students from the northeast, regular panchayat and women safety measures on the campus are some of the prominent issues on NSUI’s agenda for the upcoming Delhi University polls.

National Student Union of India (NSUI), Congress’ student wing, today released its manifesto for the DU Students Union (DUSU) polls slated for September 9.

Besides this, it has already released a special “women manifesto” and “manifesto for northeastern students” ahead of the polls.

NSUI’s major challenge is to beat the BJP affiliated ABVP which has been sweeping all four seats of DUSU for the past two consecutive years and is aiming at a hat-trick this year.

“Due to the fear of losing, our opponents are pretending to be nationalists in the campuses now and projecting anyone else who is against the agenda of the RSS as anti-nationals. It is rather unfortunate that these people who stayed away from the freedom struggle and were also involved in the murder of Mahatma Gandhi are now wearing the mask of nationalism,” senior Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said.

Construction of more hostels, physical and academic infrastructure for differently-abled students, incentives for sports and extra-curricular activities, free health insurance and ensuring student representation in the governing body of colleges are other issues on NSUI agenda.

DUSU is the representative body of the students from most colleges and faculties of the varsity. Apart from DUSU, which is an umbrella council, each college also has its own students’ union for which they hold separate elections.

Students’ wings of various political parties have intensified their campaign.

A total of 91 candidates are in the fray for the four crucial DUSU posts. There are 27 candidates for the post of president, 19 for vice-president, 24 for secretary and 21 for the post of joint secretary.

India could be late by 50 years in achieving education goals

India could be late by 50 years in achieving education goals: UNESCO

New Delhi: A UNESCO report has said that according to the current trend, India will be half a century late in achieving its global education commitments.

Going by the current trend, India will be half a century late in achieving its global education commitments and the country needs fundamental changes in the education system if it wants to meet the 2030 sustainable development goals, a Unesco report has said.

Unesco’s new Global Education Monitoring (GEM) report says that based on current trends universal primary education in southern Asia will be achieved in 2051, lower secondary in 2062, and upper secondary in 2087.

India is expected to achieve universal primary education in 2050, universal lower secondary education in 2060 and universal upper secondary education in 2085, it said.

“This means the region would be more than half a century late for the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) deadline,” it added.

The report says there is an urgent need for greater headway in education and the sector needs a major transformation to fulfil the needed potential and meet the current challenges facing humanity and the planet.

It also talks of another report, Education for People and Planet, which, it said, shows the need for education systems to step up attention to environmental concerns.

“While in the majority of countries, education is the best indicator of climate change awareness, half of countries curricula worldwide do not explicitly mention climate change in their content. India is an exception, where currently some 300 million school students receive some environmental education,” it said.

The statistics cited in the report have revealed only six per cent of adults in the poorest countries and only five in India have ever attended literacy programmes, once they pass the formal schooling system.

The report has also called upon governments of various countries to start taking inequalities in education seriously, tracking them by collecting information directly from families.

“The new global development agenda calls for education ministers and other education actors to work in collaboration with other sectors,” it said.

The GEM Report lists various benefits that could come if education actors work in collaboration with other sectors.

The collaborative working may help delivery of health intervention through schools, contribution in increasing crop yields by 12% and contribution of education in reducing population growth.

Manohar Lal Khattar, the teacher, holds forth on Indian calendar

(Express Photo: Manoj Kumar)

Students of Class IX and Class X at the Government Senior Secondary School (GSSS) in Chakkarpur village, Gurgaon, received their morning lessons from an unusual source Monday — Haryana Chief Minister, Manohar Lal Khattar.

On Teachers’ Day, Khattar essayed the teacher’s role for nearly an hour, imparting education to around 50 students. The start was smooth, as he posed questions on mathematics and dictation. The CM, however, hit a wall when he took up the subject of computers, unaware that the students were unfamiliar with the subject.

When the students were unable to answer questions, a teacher intervened and revealed that senior classes had been taught computers by tying up with an NGO, but these students were unfamiliar with the subject. With a “let’s move on”, Khattar introduced the topic that dominated the rest of the lesson — the “Indian calendar”.

Before introducing the topic, he asked the students if they, now or in the past, had a chapter on “Bharatiya Sanskriti”. The students indicated they hadn’t. He asked them to name the months of the western calendar. Most hands went up. Then he asked them to name the months according to the Indian calendar. The hands fell. Having made his point, Khattar said, “The English calendar we remember, but the Hindu calendar, which is called the Indian calendar, we don’t. The Indian calendar is as important. We should have an understanding of our calendar, it is very practical knowledge.”

CBI probe shouldn’t worry Hooda: CM

At a press meet in Gurgaon, Khattar said his predecessor Bhupinder Singh Hooda should not be concerned about the CBI probe into an alleged land grabbing case in Manesar because he had claimed he was “prepared” for an inquiry and “ready to be hanged” if found guilty.

Challenges faced by middle-level managers and how to deal with it

middle managers, middle managers problems, middle managers courses, Key Challenges of Middle Managers, office job, office problem, solve office problem, boss irritating, work placeMeet with the senior leadership at regular intervals to set expectations about delivery and performance.

Gautam Sharma wasn’t expecting a promotion at such an early phase of his career. His happiness, however, was short-lived as his colleagues started finding faults in his leadership and above all, he found the workload unmanageable. Up till now, his only focus had been the work deputed to him but with the early raise, he now had to keep an eye on his team’s work too.

Gautam’s seniors held him responsible for mistakes done by his team members. He was no more a part of the office gossip. rather, he became a subject to gossip on.

This is a common issue that most middle managers are facing. With no autonomy, strict deadlines, inexperienced juniors, limited resources and growth chance, most feel like “a rat on a wheel”.

It’s a challenge, take it
The heady growth story of mid-level employees which lasted until about 2010 is now dissipating and realistic growth expectations are setting in. Hence now there is slow growth for all levels, especially more so for the middle management which is squeezed in between the senior level that grew really fast and may or may not be ready for the leadership role and managing younger employees, who are mostly dissatisfied with the status quo.

Mohit Jain, co-founder of Northwest Executive Education feels the reason for such confusion is that the middle managers have to navigate between old and new schools of thought, get work done without authority and don’t know know if and when they will move up the ladder.

Read: 5 things you shouldn’t tell your boss

“There is often no clear direction of what exactly is expected of them to get to the next level. The profile is more operational profile than ever before, with a job description that prioritises targets over thinking and planning, leading to a limited development of leadership skills. Not many get appreciation for their work,” said he.

Most of the times, they have to struggle with their team to get work done. “The younger workforce does not appreciate the old style of working and millennials want the freedom to work and deliver as they please. The mid-level is tasked with managing them but has not been coached on how to” said Jain.

The mid-level also faces limited growth opportunities to the next level with stretched time frames of more than three-four years, as opposed to 1.5-2 years spent at initial levels.

Balancing act
Rajeev Bhardwaj, vice president, HR, Sun Life Financial Asia Service Centre, suggests, “Middle managers have to carefully calibrate what the leadership expects and what their team can deliver. Balancing and expectation setting is critical. Ability to transform oneself to someone who can get things done is what matters. It requires playing hardball at times. Ability to push back and say no to the boss is also important. One has to be realistic about what is expected and what is doable.”

Mohit Jain suggests tips for mid-level managers to deal with the situation:

Invest in your own learning and development as well as growth through further education, academic network extension and new experiences at work place, e.g. Executive Education Programs such as Berkeley Executive Program in Management, with a focus on innovation.

Meet with the senior leadership at regular intervals to set expectations about delivery and performance as well as craft out areas where you can assume leadership and hone those skills in a low-risk environment.

Plan to take some risks such as moving to a new function within the company, taking on greenfield projects or even moving to a bigger role at a smaller firm to gain more exposure and move up the ladder while building a repertoire of skills and competencies that can support future growth.


Extend professional networks actively through work or academic networks and surround yourself with people who are intellectually superior and add value to your life through enriching discussions and support you in your endeavours.

Make sure that your home environment is supportive including your spouse, kids and parents as you struggle through this and sometimes spend more time at work then home.

Case study
Mamta Mohapatra, Professor,  IMI, New Delhi sites how a company helped its employees with a training programme.

Tesco Hindustan Service Centre (HSC) employs around 6,500 personnels in its operations in India. The company conducted a colleague engagement study called ‘What Matters to You’ (WMTY). Based on the feedback and insights on the needs of managers from across functions, Tesco rolled out a nine-month training programme called ‘Being a Great Manager’ in 2014.


This programme started with a note on the essential management skills followed by an individual action learning assignment for approximately two-three months. The programme blended the use of self-assessments, individual coaching, developmental sessions, simulations and individual action learning assignments, all designed to help stretch the potential of  managers to the highest level.

In the second step, the participating managers enhanced their coaching skills and finally ended up gaining developmental experience with understanding, accountability and courage. Under the ‘leaders teaching leaders’ model of the programme, the senior managers of the company acted as facilitators and teachers. Learning was not limited only to internal resources. External experts were also called in as and when required.

School dropout biggest crisis in India, says Singapore Deputy PM

School dropout biggest crisis in India, says Singapore Deputy PM

New Delhi: Drawing attention to a high dropout rate in upper primary schools, Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam on Friday said schools are facing the “biggest crisis” in India.

Delivering the first lecture of government think-tank Niti Aayog’s ‘Transforming India’ initiative, he said the world’s second-most populous country also has the “biggest gap” between (rpt) between talent at the top and unfulfilled potential at bottom.

Speaking on the need for social mobility, Shanmugaratnam said experiments have shown that starting as early as possible in a child’s life cycle helps.

 “Intervention at pre-natal stage are critical, followed up with pre-school opportunities,” he said, adding that India has some notable schemes in this regard citing the results of the Integrated Child Development Services and Anganwadis.

Things, he added, can be achieved with village-level interventions — from reaching out to the mother and the child as early as possible and then schools.

“Schools are the biggest crisis in India today and have been for a long time. Schools are the biggest gap between India and East Asia. And it is a crisis that cannot be justified,” the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore said.

Reeling off data, Shanmugaratnam said 43 per cent students drop out before finishing upper primary school. There is a shortage of 7,00,000 primary school teachers, only 53 per cent schools have girl’s toilets and only 74 per cent have access to daily drinking water.

He went on to say this explains that when India took part in OECD PISA study in 2009, it was ranked 73rd out of 74 countries. “And this is in a country which has exceptional talent with people who go to IITs and IIMs and lead companies all over the world and are first-rated,” he added.

“India has the biggest gap, I know and I have spent many years in education… Talent at the top and the unfulfilled potential of those in the rest of the society. And these things can be fixed. And it is not by way of ever-increasing budgets,” he said.

Highlighting Singapore’s example, the Deputy Prime Minister said it is not about spending more, but is about organisation and culture.

“How do we recruit our teachers, how do we train them, how do we hold the teachers accountable, how do we provide for quality across the system and not just at its most exclusive end? How do we ensure that every school is a good school?” he explained.

Shanmugaratnam saw a big challenge in the tertiary (higher) education system, which he said is not unique to India, but all over the world, the US, the UK, China, Europe and Korea.

“We are over-producing graduates who go through a general academic education. We have over-academised learning… We are producing students who do not have the skills required in the real world. We have to re-orient our system to focus on the skills required in the real world,” he stressed.

On human resource development, Shanmugaratnam said: “Human capital development is not just what happens in first 12 years or 18 years of our life, it is about what happens through (rpt) through the life. It is about life-long learning. We need to refresh ourselves.”

It means developing potential throughout life, having an infrastructure that encourages people to learn, he noted.

Shanmugaratnam also underscored “a very special role” cities play in Reform, Perform and Transform, particularly in a large continental-scale society like India. “Because it is cities which are crucibles of both innovation and inclusivity,” he reasoned.

“It is in cities where you get a working relationship between government, business, ITIs and schools. We have to empower them. Hold them accountable, give them some financial autonomy and hold competition among them. Cities will play a special role in future,” he predicted.

Shanmugaratnam endorsed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy, saying he has rightly emphasised that there is no strong economy and no strong nation without a strong society.

“And the social policies and the interaction between the social and economic policies have to be the primary arena for the government’s ambition. Social policy at the end of the day is economic policy,” he added.

He concluded saying the need of the hour is “what the Prime Minister emphasised in his speech”.

“It’s not just about budgets, it’s not just about programmes, it is at the end of the day about a social and political culture…,” he added.

Shanmugaratnam underlined the need for enhancing social cohesion and the need to bring various sections of society together.

Making the point that looking long term in developing culture always pays, he said: “A culture that focuses on the long term is essential for all that we want to achieve in an inclusive society. Short-termism is an enemy of social mobility.”
