    The students who are out on the streets are below average in studies and they are envious of the majority in the classroom.They want the brilliant students to come to their level.It will not happen.The students who resort to violence are indisciplined and can not succeed in life.Political knowledge and not politics should prevail in campuses.

    Gavaskar is ignoring the fact that there r genuine reason why students agitate n why they r on the streets.. They aren't doing it for fun or bcos they hate attending classes. Go back to history n u will learn that change n transformation always begins with a single step.. Students being one of the powerful agent of change. The govt should encourage dialogue n listen to the voice of its citizens. Arrogance n pride won't tak our country forward.
