The bandh culture of our state is taking a toll on the education system. As most professional courses are designed on a specific timeframe, students are forced to skip valuable classes during a bandh. By the end of the academic year, students are at a loss, not knowing how to make up. The striking parties do not even bother to give this issue a thought. In such a situation, only the institutions can bail them out by holding additional classes.
