Oxford dictionary defines Ragging as the act of teasing or playing jokes on someone. But how this word has evolved is quite different in the current scenario. Ragging, seniors having fun with juniors with the start of new academic year but Some say it’s a terror leading to suicides while some believe that its trend of fun filled start to the academic year with seniors. But I believe that ragging can be both, depending on two major factors i.e. nature of freshers and the level of ragging practiced by seniors.
How new entrants take ragging depend on their nature. How can one expect from an introvert -flinching personality to dance in front of everyone? It will be the worst part of his life while an extrovert-confronting personality can dance with no fear. For him it will be fun. Consequences of ragging also depend on the limit of ribbing by seniors. If juniors are made to dance or sing or imitating film dialogues, then it’s considered as heartwarming but if seniors cross the line of jocularity by humiliating some in presence of everyone, forcing things which is against his sentiments turns this fun start to the worst one.
In the end I would like to conclude saying ragging should be accepted till it is in the limit and doesn’t hurts anyone’s sentiments.
