What can be done about these student rowdies?The Chennai police have proactively found knifes with so many students in a particular college, well known for anti-social elements. This college, situated right on the prestigious Poonamalaee High Road, is the nerve centre of superb flats and apartments and gated communities. Yet, this menace of student violence looms large in Chennai. On previous occasions, such students have gone on a rampage, attacking fellow students of another college.
Primarily motivated by some cheap movies where the use of the knives and what we call as "aruval" (the big axe) is branded as heroism, these misguided youth have taken to violence.
How do we stem this horrible violence?
