The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

Apro­pos ‘Stran­gling Our Univer­si­ties’ by Supriya Chaud­huri (Feb 27), three prom­i­nent state univer­si­ties in Tamil Nadu, in­clud­ing the old­est Univer­sity of Madras, Anna Univer­sity and MKU, don’t have vice-chan­cel­lors for a year now. Knowl­edge and in­no­va­tion in univer­si­ties can only be achieved through aca­demic free­dom and lib­er­alised fund­ing of in­no­va­tion based on high sci­en­tific re­search in pure science and so­cial science by young and tal­ented teach­ers and sci­en­tists.
