September 5th is a black day in the academic history of India

The decision of the Madras University to award  an honorary doctorate to Ms.Sonia Gandhi who is not even high school pass nor has written any books of any worth nor has been an avid reader of books, is a further de-basement of the great University that was Madras University. This debasement had already plummeted when the Mr. Ramachandran became the Vice Chancellor and in a disgusting show of sycophancy, had prostrated in public before Mr.Karunanidhi while he on a post-breakfast pre-lunch fast against the Supreme Court stay of Rama Setu demolishing planned by him and Sonia Gandhi to deliberately Hindu feelings. 

 Ms.Sonia Gandhi who as a widow and financial beneficiary of Rajiv Gandhi's assassination has shown the depth of depravity by electorally aligning with forces that aid and abet her husband's killers namely the LTTE for some mysterious reason yet to be found out, was already in the dock for having falsifying on oath her educational qualifications by claiming to have studied in the University of Cambridge UK. She was let off by the Supreme Court on the ground of 'generosity' and the charge being of a crime committed 'long ago' i.e., three years stale. But recently a US Court was less forgiving where her minions claimed $100 millions from three Indians for attacking her for this perjury in an ad in New York Times. The lady judge dismissed their claim with the remark that if this charge was untrue then Ms.Gandhi must have the nerve to come to court and defend herself, which she has declined to do. 

Hence September 5th is a black day in the academic history of India, and the Madras University will become the laughing stock of the whole world forever. I urge the students and professors of the University to rise in revolt against this award for the sake of their own future reputation.
