Formal education and ethics / values are integral for achieving a just society based on equity sensitivity towards one another’s social and cultural likings and lineages. Education institutions provide an environment for inculcating spirit of brotherhood, tolerance for diversity of thought and belief. Ragging has emerged as the antithesis of the real sprit and intrinsic value system of education institutions. As such concerted efforts are required to put an end to this distasteful exercise under taken in the guise of introduction. Education and ethics have an essential place in all fields of life. They have a vital and productive role in social integration of students of all social and cultural backgrounds. In an academic environment of a school and a college or other institutes for higher education disciplined way of code and conduct is essential. However, many a times occurrences of ‘ragging’ emerges as a social menace. Such practices have no place in an academic institute and concerted efforts are required to be in place to prevent its occurrence at any point of time. In common parlance, ragging means playing practical jokes on somebody or teaching someone a lesson. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India perhaps has given a more comprehensive meaning of ragging as: "Ragging is any disorderly conduct, whether by words spoken or written, or by an act which has the effect of teasing, treating or handling with rudeness any student, indulging in rowdy or indiscipline activities which cause or are likely to cause annoyance, hardship or psychological harm or to raise fear or apprehension thereof in a fresher or a junior student and which has the effect of causing or generating a sense of shame or embarrassment so as to adversely affect the psyche of a fresher or a junior student." The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India has taken a serious note of the incidents of ragging and is of the view that stern action should be taken against those indulging in “ragging” so that these incidents are not repeated and exemplary punishment is meted out to those indulging in it.
