Lonely this Valentine's Day?
Consider this -

The foundational issue the gov has with institutions like #jnu is that these institutions fulfill what education is supposed to. They make you rational. They make you curious. They make you doubt. They make you question. They make you reject bullshit. They make you resist. They empower you. They make you rise against what's not right.
