The state of our education system is a bit like the condition of the endangered Olive Ridley turtle or like Salman Khan’s car. Confused? You won’t be after you watch Media Collective’s latest video. It has been 75 days since the Occupy UGC protests first started in India, against the discontinuation of the non-NET Fellowship and the struggle still continues as students assert their right to subsidized education.
