A recent incident in Kerala has gained attention on social media platforms, with a woman student from an engineering college writing an apology letter to the warden after her phone was reportedly confiscated. The incident took place at the Amal Jyothi College of Engineering, where the warden allegedly took away the student’s phone while she was listening to music during her shower.
Outrage Erupts over Apology Letter Requirement
The requirement for the student to write an apology letter has generated widespread anger and criticism online. Reddit users, in particular, have voiced their disapproval of the college’s strict rules and regulations. A post on Reddit featuring an image of the apology letter has gone viral, receiving over 1,600 upvotes and counting.
The caption of the post reads, “An apology letter for listening to music – Amal Jyothi College of Engineering.” The accompanying image shows a woman holding the apology letter, addressed to “Sister Maga Amala Hostel.” In the letter, the student expresses her sincere apologies for listening to songs on her phone while bathing and promises that it won’t happen again. She also requests the return of her phone, citing important work and projects she needs to complete.
Criticism of College and Support for the Student
Online discussions have highlighted the role of parents in supporting harsh disciplinary measures against students, contributing to the strict environment in educational institutions. Some users pointed out that hostels, especially those run by convents, often display authoritarian behavior reminiscent of modern-day moderate security prisons. Many individuals have expressed solidarity with the student, sharing their own experiences of unreasonable rules and penalties.
In light of the increasing attention this incident has garnered, it is hoped that the concerns raised will lead to a broader conversation about student rights and the importance of a nurturing and supportive educational environment.
