About the Book:

The present publication carries papers specially invited by the
University Grants Commission to take both the stock of the situation and learn from
experience. The autonomous colleges in the country are not of any particular vintage
because any vintage will have to carry the hallmark of Indian bureaucracy to survive. Even
our experiments cannot be allowed to be either complete authentic copies of a foreign
model or be allowed to grow on indigenous roots. Therefore, we specialize in making mess
of any good scheme. The autonomous college scheme is one such example wherein the success
has already reached the peak and without fresh inputs of ideas and resources it will soon
take the road to nowhere.

These papers give a direction and teach us from their experience. One
can only hope the leviathan called the UGC will learn to loosen its stranglehold and the
State governments will stop interfering too much. For a change they will stop transferring
the staff as a policy ask the universities in the region to become less political
playgrounds and more academic.

One can learn and do a lot if only there is a desire to act. Hope something will happen
this time because the tenth five-year plan recommendations say so , at least on the paper.
