what’s in the book
J Sushil writes- “No one can deny that JNU has been a left-wing university. After the coming of a right-wing government at the center in 2014, there was a possibility of a confrontation but this confrontation would be in the form of an attack under the guise of nationalism, not ideological, it was thought by few people.’
The author repeatedly says in the book that a wrong image has been created about JNU. Seminars are held there every year regarding the independence of Kashmir. But there will be slogans like Bharat Tere Tukde Honge or misinformation like counting condoms, JNU is being defamed in every way.
“Prime Minister Nehru’s vision of the Non-Aligned Movement and the socialist ideological approach determined the direction of JNU in the early stages. Nehru, who studied in Cambridge, probably wanted a world-class university like Oxford and Cambridge to be built in India where debate could get full space and children could learn about international relations and make a name for the whole world.”
This book can also be called a book written from an unbiased perspective because it does not deny even those things in which it is said that left-leaning professors in JNU cut the numbers of students who are supporters of right-wing ideas. There may be some truth to it, writes author J Sushil.

If it has run then a story is more true. There was a couple. Girl from Patna and boy from Lucknow. Both would listen and talk to Jagjit Singh’s songs. If we look at both of us, it seems that this is love. On cold nights, both would go out with blankets. After seeing this for many days, I asked – what do you do in such a cold? The answer was- Prem
I do brother.
I said why don’t you make love in the room.
