Learning, outside ivory tower

The Indian Express

The exit of Pratap Bhanu Mehta from Ashoka University has challenged popular assumptions about the space for unfettered intellectual freedom in bastions of academic privilege committed to 'liberal education at par with the best in the world'. The outpouring of international support, the protest of students and faculty on campus, and Mehta's own formidable reputation infuses it with particular salience. Is the promise of autonomy so enthusiastically advanced by the New Education Policy (NEP) unravelling?

Beyond the heat and dust of the moment, emerge concerns about the future of the academy and the ecosystems that define its trajectories.
