Dear Rajesh, Kanchan and Others,
Even when there are rules, sometimes, (in fact more than often) blind
people have to fight for these things like the service of scribe: this
is the Indian truth. In Delhi University, during last one year, we had
lengthy discussions at the level of Equal Oppertunity Cell regarding
the availability and eligibility of scribe. We have now prepared a
long draft, which we are trying to get approved by the University. But
we felt that there always be irregularities; and therefore, we would
need a proper system of redresal in such cases.
It would be extremely helpful if Kanchan can send me these regulations
in attachment so that we can print an authentic copy to use as a
supportive document in our struggle at Delhi University on this issue.
