Sambhar Mafia - Cooked To Kill!

Caught Red Handed

A student of a Chennai Engineering College has been pulled up by the College management for wearing dark shirt to the classes. The College dress code states that students should wear light colour shirts and dark colour trousers to the classes. A better way to implement these kinds of rules would be to give uniform to all the students :-) New Indian Express has more:

When contacted, college principal V K R Jaisingh said: This is the third time the boy is being pulled up by us. As per the college dress code, boys have to wear light- coloured shirts, must be clean-shaven and have short hair,'' he said. Girls have to wear salwar kameez with dupattas and jeans is not allowed. Cellphones are banned. Our intention was not to punish the boy but to warn him. We asked him to bring his father and let him off by 5.15 pm.

With the kind of developments in Chennai, reading a Chennai newspaper is probably the best time pass right now.

  • Compared to our Chennai Culture Conservationist Police, The Taliban look like a bunch of hedonistic liberal orgy members!

  • i dont know wat the whole fuss is abt. A fully grown college student who resides in chennai losing his way home, that too early in the evening haha really funny :)) ! I feel tht kid and his father is blowing the things up!

    Yeah i agree tht the college has some insensible rules but u have to deal these things some other way, not with these kinda funny stories.

  • I dont blv this! Till now I thought the moral police in college justy concentrated on girls clothes ... my sis tells me she is not allowed to wear sleaveless t-shirts to college for example. why dont people just grow up and stop hyper-ising abt everything! they are so obsessed with 'our traditions' and 'our ancient values' ... one of their ancestors probably wrote the kamasutra! how and when did india become such a prude ... i think we DEFINITELY WERE NOT like this only

  • Wow, and then you think that the heart of the Hindi-belt is backward! About your last post - there are no furry moles in both editorial offices - this is through the guys in the ad sales dept. The Sex covers have always come out together - ad sales start positioning sales (condom companies and the like) three months in advance. Of course, there is thing about the menopause of ideation in both the magazines, but then again that is boring talk. The hot gossip is now all involving whether IT's god will stay or go!

  • True, chennai is becoming a big gala commedy show. Wonder why our educationists/teachers/ became cultural guardians

  • @bala-come on that way 2 much,we havent gone that bad as taliban.
    BTW here in US lot of club,school do have a dresscode, my community swiming pool has dress code. If you are entering privately owned places we have to abide by their rules, if we dont like it move on to other places.

    Anyway hopefully young people should revolt against such lousy uselss dress codes.

  • I don't even feel like going to their symposium tomorrow!

  • @Gayathri,
    thanks. there is so much 'masala' news from Chennai and hence it was a honest statement from my side.

    Yeah, the Chennai Culture Conservationists will give the taliban a run for its money

    Thanks for dropping by. it might be exaggerated as the student says that he got lost somewhere. it is difficult to believe the same.


    it is definitely disturbing to hear the developments back home


    Thanks for the clarification about the India Today and Outlook cover stories

    The conservationists wanna hog the limelight and what better way to do that

    Thanks for the clarification

    they might fine u for not attending the symposium :-)
