I guess this blog is the only reason many of us know how corrupt the NIPER's system is. This blog is not different from Anna Hazare's campaign against corruption. His campaign is not defaming India and similarly this blog not defaming NIPER. It is against the corrupt administrators of NIPER.
The reputation of NIPER is due to the impression we (alumni) make on our future employers. If NIPER continues to run like the way it had been run in last decade, I won't be surprised if all of the experienced professors leave it one day.
To name a few, just think how different Dept of Pharmaceutics would have been had Dr Ramesh Panchagnula stayed in NIPER till now. After he left the national bioavailability center hasn't been used even once.
Same is the case with Dr Ravi Kumar, but lets not go in all those details. The point is, somehow those who think independently and are ambitious are suppressed in NIPER. This has to change someday, and I think this blog is a good beginning in that direction.
The fear of new faculty not joining NIPER is true, but it is better for those good souls not to join NIPER rather than leaving it mid-way through their carriers.
I hope you know why Dr Sakhlani left NIPER. He was in Natural products dept and Dr Bhutani was the HOD, join the dots..
If any of the accusations made by Dr Nilanjan Roy were not true, I don't think this blog would have survived so long. NIPER would have taken some disciplinary action including court order to stop him from posting or atleast a defamation case by NIPER, what we see instead is routine visits of NIPER by CBI..
Lets hope this is just a small turbulence in NIPER's history, but eventually leads to a strong dedicated NIPER administration which can bring back its glory..
