Students have either left for their home towns or have taken shelter at their local friends’ homes

The campus of the prestigious Banaras Hindu University (BHU), which completed its 100 years less than a year ago, has turned into a curfew town following an alleged sexual harassment of an undergraduate student. Unhindered discussions in the art faculty, creative endeavours in visual and performing arts and research work at science, genetics and mathematics laboratories were stalled.
The 1,300 acres of lush green campus, which is the only respite in an otherwise chaotic Varanasi, witnessed lathicharge, hurling of petrol bombs and stone pelting. The Durga Puja break that was going to start from September 28 was pre-poned and would now commence from Monday itself. Students who hail from Odisha, West Bengal, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and other far-off places either caught buses and trains to go to their homes or found shelter at their local friends’ homes.

Chartered accountants may have succeeded stupendously in business or as corporate heads. But as auditors, they haven’t given a sterling account of themselves as the gatekeepers they are meant to be. The whiff of chicanery hanging around lawyers now hangs around big auditing firms and CAs too. Of late
