Ravi has been teaching at IIT Bombay since early 1993. Through these years, the one group that has filled his life with joyful memories is his students. Certification, evaluation, surveillance, invigilation and unhealthy competition are words he is allergic to, though he finds that these are increasingly the topics of discussion amongst his colleagues, and society at large. Being an incurable romantic, he longs for an academic world infused with the romance of learning.
