NEET rules – is this taking it too far?The bit of news I am sharing here left me both shocked and amused.
The stringent rules prescribed and followed for NEET, are a topic of discussion. It is interesting to note the steps taken by the authorities to prevent cheating - no full sleeves, no jeans, no earrings, no hairpins, no nose pins, no metal. There is an image in the papers of an official snipping off the sleeve of a candidate. Shocking, but maybe she deserved such treatment (or did she) for not following the rules.
As I turned the pages, there was more shocking news inside. Girls at a NEET examination centre in Kannur were asked to remove their undergarment because they had metallic clasps and buckles. Is this not taking it a bit too far?
Imagine the psychological impact this must have had on those girls. I think this was uncalled for and completely unjustified. What are your reactions to this news?
