The clip of a very loud and violent classroom skirmish between students of a Hyderabad college looks all set to go viral after the video found its way to both Facebook and YouTube.
Details are still emerging but several comments under the video, across social media platforms, are by students from the Malla Reddy group of colleges in Hyderabad. Deccan Chronicle is still trying verifying the origins of the video clip.
The footage shows two to three girls duking it out inside a college classroom while male students appear to be cheering them on with shouts and claps. One of the onlookers seems to have shot the video on a mobile device.
What’s striking is that the fight continued for a couple of minutes amidst cheers and words of encouragement from the girls’ classmates and was only stopped when an official stepped in.
One girl is then seeing walking away while the rest huddled into a bunch. As far as numbers go, the clip on Facebook has generated hundreds of likes and on Youtube too, the views are mounting. The clip has also been shared numerous times within the city’s web forums, though fortunately for the girls, no identities have been revealed.

In a bid to boost education via robotics, Hyderabad-based start-up
Jay Robotix said it has launched a Robolab at the Jawahar Navodaya
Vidyalaya School in Nalagonda district of Andhra Pradesh.
company pointed out that the Robolab will help around 470 students of
the school learn the concepts of science, technology, engineering and
mathematics practically by applying the concepts on robots.
"We have not only set up this Robolab at a highly subsidised cost
but will bear the cost of the maintenance of the robots for one full
year. It will also provide training to the school faculty on robotics
concepts," the company release said.
"With this initiative we are
now extending our support to government schools to make robotics
accessible for all. We see a huge potential in the education sector

robotics. We are planning to set up Robolabs in more schools and
colleges across the country," Jay Robotix managing director Sudhir Reddy

Hyderabad schools flout RTE norms, no draw of lots for admission
Monday, November 25, 2013
Four years after the Right to Education Act (RTE) came into force, only a handful of schools in the city have adopted the lottery system or draw of lots to select students for admissions as stipulated by the Act.
Over 95 per cent of the prominent schools in the city still continue to give admissions based on entrance tests, interviews of students and parents, apart from the ability to pay donations ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh.
The only thing that has changed for schools after the RTE came into force is the names of entrance tests, donations, interviews. In a bid to escape government action, entrance tests are now being conducted under the guise of talent tests, scholarship tests, merit tests etc, while interviews go under the names of management-student-parent interactions and donations are called tuition fees. Regular fees have become term fees in some schools.
Hyderabad Public School, in Begumpet and Ramanthapur are the only schools to strictly implement the lottery system for admissions. Of the prominent private schools, Sanghamitra School, Nizampet and P. Obul Reddy Public School, Jubilee Hills have adopted the lottery system.
“Recently, a prominent school in Secunderabad demanded a tuition fee of Rs 55,000 and term fee of Rs 49,000 for Class I. Normally, schools collect tuition fee as term fees but this school collects tuition fees and term fees separately.
Other parents confirmed that the school collects donation in the name of tuition fees and tuition fees as term fees separately to escape government action, in case of complaints to regulatory agencies by parents. But if donation is paid, admission is confirmed,” said P. Sujatha, a parent.
According to the RTE Act, children between the ages of 6-14 should not be subjected to any form of tests. The Act also mandates schools to give admissions on a first-come-first-serve basis. In case of excess applications, selection should be based on a draw of lots. However, students continue to be tested in Maths, English, Hindi and story-telling.
Division to hit fee reimbursement
Monday, November 25, 2013
The fee reimbursement scheme, on which depends the fate of over 27 lakh students across the state pursuing professional and higher education courses, is hanging in uncertainty thanks to the proposed bifurcation of state. The government has stopped payment of tuition fees this year without citing any reasons.
It is midway through the current academic year, but the government is still in the process of accepting applications from freshers and renewal students, which has raised serious concerns among students from socially and economically weaker sections.
Although the government has not cited any reasons for halting payment of fees this year, students and college managements believe that the proposed bifurcation of state is the reason for it and fear that the government will not pay the fees until clarity is reached with regard to bifurcation and the financial burden on each state post-bifurcation, as a large number of students from Seemandhra region are studying in colleges in Telangana region.
“We have not received a single rupee so far, despite completing one semester this year. The government owes us Rs 4,500 crore, in addition to the arrears of Rs 150 crore from last year. We have been chasing officials for months but with no response.
We will wait until month-end and start collecting fees from students. We have no other option. We have to pay salaries to the staff and meet operational costs,” said Ramesh Nimmatoori, chairman, Consortium of AP Engineering and Professional Colleges Association.
The enrolment in professional colleges has increased by leaps and bounds in the last five years on account of the scheme with professional courses becoming accessible to all, irrespective of their financial status.
Fee reimbursement scheme is one of the major financial burdens on the state exchequer. The burden increased from Rs 1,000 crore per annum in 2009 to Rs 4,500 crore currently. The burden of fees will weigh more on Telangana than Seemandhra post-bifurcation.
