Mumbai, 4:30pm on 6th January 2020. Students gathered in large numbers to protest against the JNU Attacks. The protest was previously supposed to take place at Huttatma Chowk, Fort; later shifted to Gateway of India, Colaba for convenience of space to gather.

Mumbai is seldom recommended for its night life, termed as a city that never sleeps. The students of Mumbai did change the dimensions of the proverb and took a stand for their fellow academic mates.
The protest is still on with students from allover the city.

Gateway was completely occupied, leaving no space for vehicles. It did portray the strength of the youth in not just the Financial capital but even for the country. The protest had enchantments of some quirky slogans, motivational speeches by representatives.

It has been more than 24 hours of attack, but no case has been filled against the Goons. The Delhi police has been alleged by the whole country for taking mere action against the attack. It has been a petrifying experience for the whole JNU campus.

It was sourced that the ABVP supporters in the campus were left untouched by the Goons. Their rooms were intact and safe. There were Goons impostered as students hijacking their safety spots and attacking them. The social media is stormed with pictures, videos, quotes and appeals. May that be the film fraternity, activists or just common students.

Despite the roar, the unity of nations youth, there has been no strict action against the terror attack. It started with AMU then JNU and now it can any University of the country that has been voicing their fundamental rights as citizens.

The democratic uproar has been tinted in saffron with blinkers of Religious violence. It’s high time the public took charge to remind the Republican of the Country.

In raising the issue of lotus being printed on new passports brought for distribution in Kozhikode in Kerala during Zero Hour, M. K. Raghavan of the Congress said the issue was highlighted by a newspaper and alleged that this was the government establishment’s “further saffronization” with the lotus being the BJP’s election symbol.

Asked about the issue, the Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “This symbol is our national flower and is part of the enhanced security features to identify fake passports.” These security features have been introduced as part of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) guidelines, he said.

“Apart from the lotus, other national symbols will be used on rotation. Right now it is lotus, then next month there will be something else. These are symbols connected with India such as the national flower or national animal,” he said.

The prize contains a bag of 9 million Swedish krona (about Rs 6.5 crore) to be shared between the three winners. Banerjee was born in Mumbai and is the second Indian to receive the Nobel Prize in Economics after Amartya Sen. Like Sen, Banerjee is also a presidential college alumnus, now presidential college.
