Presidency College hits headlines for wrong reasons.

If you had ever wondered that the incident in Nov 2008 at Madras Law College in full public glare was ghastly – they are not isolated.  A few days earlier students of Nandanam Arts College in the city of Chennai clashed and there were reports of knife-stabbing. 

In earlier days people migrated from villages to cities and Education was one of the reasons.  The city of Madras had some great institutions known for imparting quality education and one amongst them is the Presidency College that stands majestically in the Beach Road (Kamarajar Salai now).  Presidency College is an Arts, law and science college in Chennai.   Established as the Madras Preparatory School on October 15, 1840 and later, upgraded to a high school and then, graduate college, the Presidency College is one of the oldest government arts colleges in India. It is one of the two Presidency colleges established by the British in India, the other being the Presidency College, Kolkata.  The college’s history states that the school was earlier in Egmore subsequently shifted to Broadway and then to the present location opposite to Marina beach in 1870.

Groupism in students and fighting amongst themselves is nothing new – but this time, it reportedly is a new phenomenon of ‘Bus route allegiance’.  Presidency College hit the headlines for wrong reasons as  Campus violence raised its ugly head, when a group of students armed with sickles,sticks,stones and tubelights barged into the Presidency College on Kamaraj Salai and beat up two fellow students. A rivalry among students travelling on different bus routes to and from the college is suspected to be behind the incident.  It is reported that in the noon a group entered the collge wielding deadly weapons, searched, chased and attacked two students.  Some were badly injured and couple of them were stabbed.

Police was deployed in large numbers to control the situation.  There appeared complete mayhem and lawlessness for a few hours.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar.

  21. The result of a game, competition or an uncertain event is called gambling. Gambling risk and profit prospects are very uncertain. The rules by which gambling games are played sometimes allow some players to manipulate the game to serve their own interests. So, it is important to have knowledge about the game.

  36. Diesem Grundsatz folgt ein neues Angebot unserer E1 International Investment Holding: Wir bieten Ihnen die Möglichkeit einer direkten Beteiligung an Unternehmen, die Immobilien ankaufen und betreiben. Das ist umso interessanter, als dass für jeden einzelnen Ankauf eine eigene Gesellschaft gegründet wird. So verstehen wir Transparenz – und genau darauf kommt es bei komplexen Immobiliengeschäften an.Diese besondere Art von Immobilieninvestitionen eröffnet Ihnen enorme Chancen: Viele Projekte scheitern nämlich bereits an den grundlegenden Voraussetzungen, wenn beispielsweise Bonität oder Eigenkapital einer Person alleine nicht für ein Vorhaben ausreichen. Projekte mit großem Volumen, die eine interessante Rendite einspielen könnten, bleiben deswegen oft genug auf halbem Weg stecken. Die Lösung: Mehrere Investoren einigen sich und erwerben sogenannte Immobilien Aktien – Immobilieninvestitionen in Millionenhöhe so sind realisierbar. Der Weg vom Kleinanleger zum Großanleger ist also geebnet: Sie erwerben Gesellschaftsanteile, sodass das Projekt umgesetzt werden kann, und profitieren von den Erträgen. Diese Immobilien Aktien lassen sich jederzeit weiter veräußern – Sie bleiben also ausgesprochen flexibel und können im Gegenzug mit einem ansprechenden Angebot aus dem Kreis der anderen Gesellschafter rechnen. Gerne stehen wir Ihnen zur ausführlichen Besprechung dieses Angebotes zur Verfügung – rufen Sie uns einfach an.Immobilienbeteiligungen!
