Dear Rajiv ji

Greetings!

Thanks for your talk at the TISS campus yesterday (29th January) evening. I was away from Mumbai and thus missed your lecture.

I was informed at about 8.30pm – as I was at the airport – a few students behaved in an inappropriate manner.

Such behaviour is against the principles upheld by the institute – listen to and understand differing perspectives without prejudice. This principle was breached yesterday. I am sorry for the incident.

The environment in academic institutions in the country is disturbed and we shall try to get the situation normal.

With regards

S. Parasuraman
Director, Tata Institute of Social Sciences
