First, it was Jairam Ramesh doing his nut over the convocation gown. Personally, I don’t give a flying fish whether or not you have gowns at these things — but “barbaric”, Jairam? The right word to use, you think, when you are referring to an education-related practice? Why did they give you that doctorate, again?
The minister’s little number resonated with several others. Take it off, Jairam, cheered Murli Manohar Joshi from the sidelines. Nitish Kumar likewise. And now, closer home — my home, that is — Karnataka minister Ramachandra Gowda wants the ceremonial cap replaced with an indigenous version.
Must be the heat.
