Shri V. K. Jhunjhunuwala
India is a social welfare republic and it is the republic's constitutional responsibility to take care of the marginalized masses. But the present trend infected with liberalized global market economy had opened flood gates of ultra modern techniques to earn profit by art of selling even bogus good in the open market and India has miserably failed to check the rot.
The red carpet welcome to foreign investors especially, in higher education is an indicator to deny higher education particularly, the legal education to those Classes who have been serving the most needy litigants in the Indian courts. The horrible and steep fee structures in most of law schools imparting legal education after 10+2 is invariably a denial of admission to the average middle class but brilliant students. The publicity stunt of these law schools simply indicate that legal education is a milchcow, where no profit no loss Philanthropy is farcical. This trend is chornic to our Society and nation in the ultimate analysis.
Therefore, the regulatory bodies should come forward to safeguard the interests of poor middle class students by timely action lest the law education is swept over by business magnets and the old adage ignorance of law is no excuse become a fantasy.

Nuclear menace and ecological disaster are rather less calamitous to humanity than scrupulous self indulgence, self derivation and glorification of greed as it kills the long cherished cultural and emotional values, mars social and economic justice and proliferate the doctrine of grabbing rather than sharing and caring. The indulgence of foreign investor's doyens and real estate mafia in the education sector is certainly not philanthropic. It is rather a strategic plot to control and utilize public resources for personal greed. It would certainly be not to enlighten the youth which is the foremost aim higher education and research. The trend of commercialization of education would glorify greed rather than service and the ultimate scapegoats of this strategical would be the students of the marginalized and middle classes. The iread mill of growth mounted by corporate doyens gives a momentous panoramic glimpse and in this transition the snooty piece of gratuitous advice preferred by moralistic prudence falls apart. And the resultant effect would be wirly twirly crop of citizens anxious for a quick fix career and to enmass fortune devoid of morality and sentimental values.
