Late Aishwarya Agrawal JNU The photo on the left is of Aishvarya Agrawal, M.Tech student with the School of Information Technology [SIT, JNU] who passed away yesterday at about 11 PM IST.

The manifest, ostensible, medical reason is that Aishvarya died due to an asthma attack.

But the real reason is that he died because of lack of a fully equipped ambulance and medical facilities within the JNU campus!

The JNU ambulances are nothing but taxis and transport vehicles with no stretcher, nebulizer, oxygen cylinder or a paramedic to administer first aid. The death was fully preventable if the JNU ambulance was a fully equipped one.

The SIT students wrote a letter to the vice chancellor and raised the various issues related to this unfortunate preventable death of young Aishvarya Agrawal in a meeting with the JNU officials.

At about 9:15 pm a condolence meeting was held at the administrative building and students came together for a silent candle march from the administrative building to the Health Centre of the campus located near the Ganga hostel. The students have resolved to light candles at the health centre every night until the apathetic JNU administration decides to open the health centre round the clock and provides for adequate medical support and staff, a long-standing demand of the JNU student community.

JNU health centre sucks in more ways than one! The quality of doctors is pathetic [jhola chhap doctors is the phrase many JNUites use in a light-hearted vein meaning quacks]. Some years ago Prof. Ramprasad Sengupta, Dean of School of Social Sciences had suffered a heart attack and there was no ambulance for him and he had to hire a taxi to go to the hospital!

The JNU Teachers Association [JNUTA] itself had raised the issue very seriously after that episode. Dr. Rupmanjari Ghosh, the then JNUTA president had said:

The health centre is not equipped to handle an emergency and I have been highlighting this inadequacy in services…The lack of preparedness of the JNU health centre is shocking…we want… a medical attendant and basic life-saving equipment for the ambulance..

The JNU ambulances are mere vehicles! The death of Aishvarya Agrawal is yet another testimony. The JNU officials have often claimed in the media that the JNU campus has a ‘fully equipped ambulance!’ Nothing can be more shameful.

JNU Student Aisvarya dies due to poor medical attention in JNU JNU is like a township. It is a residential university with thousands of students, faculty and non-teaching staff residing within the JNU campus. A 24X7 health centre and fully equipped ambulances are demands as old as the hills!

The JNU administration has the resources for sacrilegious concretisation and beautification of the campus [electric poles worth 50 Lakh Rupees have been installed even though the old ones were working perfectly; benches worth about 40000 Rupees everywhere in the campus, absolutely useless signboards and whatnot] but it does not have any money for the basic needs of the JNU community!

The bureaucratic JNU administration wants this place to be a world-class one but the facilities here are still wretched on many counts.

This is what JNUSU president Dhananjay had said in 2006

The (Health) centre needs to be 24 hours seven days a week. There are also very few specialists that come here. If there is an emergency in the middle of the night, what will happen..

What will happen?! Death of course! Aishvarya Agrawal is dead! He was a student of one of the greatest universities on earth surrounded by some of the greatest hospitals on this planet! Still he died because the ambulance was a mere taxi, a ferry service thanks to the JNU administration! The JNU administration has blood in its hands!

JNU administration’s “24 hour ambulance service” is just a taxi service or ferry service run by JNU administration. Today many SIT students met the JNU rector Prof. Ramadhikari Kumar who displayed professional calmness and sangfroid which only amazed the students. He repeatedly emphasized that the JNU administration is helpless on this unless it is sanctioned by the UGC! A student who was in this meeting says that the rector was very careful in not using the word ‘ambulance’ during the discussion and asked students to “cooperate” which only irritated some students.

The following letter was signed by the SIT students and sent to the JNU VC B.B. Bhattacharya.

To                                                                                                     Dated 10-09-2009

Prof B.B. Bhattacharya
The Vice Chancellor
Jawaharlal Nehru University

Sub: Let no other student of our University suffer Aishvarya’s fate!!!

We write this letter as we mourn the sudden death of our colleague Mr. Aishvarya Agrawal, a First Year student of M.Tech. in Computational and Systems Biology at School Of Information Technology.

The part that saddens us more than his death is the fact that it could have been prevented with very little effort. What we write in the following lines will clearly illustrate what is wrong with the system at JNU especially with regard to emergency medical health care.

Aishvarya was studying in Hall 001 of SIT. He was enrolled in this University rejecting offers from institutes like IIIT Allahabad and IIIT Hyderabad. He was an extremely bright student scoring 95% marks in his last degree which is B.Tech. Biotech from Allahabad Agriculture (Deemed) University and also got full marks in the first class quiz conducted in SIT. Sadly today he is no more with us.

He had one medical condition that he was suffering from chronic asthma which was under control and he always had a inhaler handy. Yesterday at around 10:30 pm he experienced acute respiratory discomfort. As usual JNU health centre was locked, therefore the so called “JNU ambulance” which lacks an oxygen cylinder and an emergency paramedic was summoned to take him to AIIMS. His condition worsened in the ambulance and when they reached the hospital the doctors tried to revive him but it was too late.

Now before you dismiss this as yet another statistic, we would like you to know that his death was perfectly preventable if the so called “JNU ambulance” which is merely a transport vehicle with no stretcher, oxygen cylinder, nebulizer, or a paramedic to administer first aid. This is not an AMBULANCE. There is no facility in the Health Centre to handle such emergencies it closes at 9 pm. Sadly medical emergencies can occur anytime and there is no one to whom students can contact in case of a medical emergency.

A University of such a great reputation not having a 24 hour emergency facility in the campus is a shocking fact and a disaster waiting to happen. We strongly urge you to have a fully equipped Health Centre at the campus with a 24 hour doctors if needed in shifts and a proper ambulance equipped with all the standard medical accessories supposed to available in a proper Ambulance. A well-trained paramedic able to use all that medical equipment should be available at any time in the ambulance.

A University as huge as JNU should have a proper Hospital on-campus. Students are frequently referred to AIIMS in case of common medical emergencies which is a good 30 minute drive away even in the best of traffic conditions. 30 minutes is a lot of time for a medical conditions to complicate beyond control. Is it too much to ask for a 5 bed Hospital which can cater to the emergency medical problems of students?

Another issue we wish to raise is the extreme paucity of Hostel rooms. Aishvarya was residing in TEFLA which is just a large room with more than 20 people packed into it with beds arranged choc-a-bloc, some people even sleep on the floor. The long delay in the room allotment procedure can be partially implicated as a cause of the worsening of his asthma since the living conditions at TEFLA are abysmal, no bathrooms, crowded living conditions.

It is extremely shameful that a student of such a prestigious university died of such an easily preventable condition. We cannot express fully in words the disgust we feel at this incident which robbed us of a dear friend. We do not seek to gain any political mileage out of this issue. All we want is just for this University to make sure that it reciprocates the care, faith and trust which all the students who live within its campus repose in it and not betray this trust by allowing such an incident to happen again, ever.

Dear sir, We make a humble request to provide us(i.e. All the JNU community) just the following two things:-

24*7 Emergency facilities having an on duty doctor at the health centre.

Well equipped 2 Ambulances with the on duty paramedic.

Signed
All the SIT Students
cc/- Rector 1
Rector 2
Dean of Students Welfare
Deans and Chairpersons of all Schools and Centres
All the JNU community

At about 9.15 pm the students gathered at the Administrative building to mourn the unfortunate death of Aishvarya Agrawal and observed a silent candle march from the JNU administration building to the worthless Health Centre of the university campus. JNUSU members were also present and YFE and AISA had especially mourned the death of the young man in their dinner pamphlets.

The JNU students candle light march from the ad block to the Health Centre:

Aisvarya's death JNU health centre negligence

Aisvarya's death JNU health centre sucks

Aisvarya's death JNU campus

Aisvarya's death JNU campus protests

Health centre JNU poor facilities

JNU Health centre student dies

The students resolved to light a candle here every night until these gates are open round the clock

JNU Health centre poor services student dies

Photo of Teflas in JNU campus where Aishvarya lived [he was yet to get the hostel]. The empty space on the right between the beds near the two blue chairs is where late Aishvarya’s bed was! The bed has been removed now.

Teflas JNU student dies due to asthma and poor medical attention

The JNU Campus “ambulance”! One of the two ambulances in the campus. It is a taxi. Nothing less nothing more! Aisvarya had used the other one: Maruti Omni.

JNU ambulance student dies JNU campus ambulance have no medical facilities and a student has died

Aishvarya Agrawal RIP. Wish Aishvarya had joined any of the IIITs and not JNU that he loved so much!

JNU administration should be held accountable for Aishvarya’s death

Addendum: When Aakriti Bhatia, a 17-year-old class XII student of the elite Modern School in Vasant Vihar Delhi had died of a asthma attack, there was a huge uproar and even an inquiry was ordered by the CM herself and the school was blamed for her death [IBN link, TOI link, Outlook link]. About 35 hours have elapsed since his death but it is nowhere in the media.

Update 11 September 2009: ABVP held a protest demonstration at the JNU admn building at 2.30 pm and demanded the resignation of the JNU Chief Medical Officer [CMO] and the JNU VC. The NSUI in an elaborate pamphlet said that “Aishvarya was the victim of a callous and indifferent system” and demanded “24X7 Health Facility in the campus, Ambulance with emergency facilities and Medical insurance for all students ” within seven days failing which it will launch a mass agitation. The ABVP dinner pamphlet on 11 Sep also lambasted the JNU administration. Update 12 September 2009: JNUSU in its pamphlet has called for a protest demonstration on Monday 14 September 2009 at 2:30 pm .

It is published in the media better late than never

Update: 12 September 2009

Students protest against JNU administration [photos and video]; JNU admn agrees to the demand of better health facilities in JNU campus, better late than never

Update: Click here to read a part II of this report about the protests on 14 Sepetmber 2009 before the JNU administration and the achievement of better health facilities in the campus. The SIT students also published a pamphlet on 13 September 2009. Excerpt:

Cost of a LCD TV, Rs. 50,000/-

Cost of a Nebulizer, Rs. 50,000/-

What is the cost of the life of a student? 😕 😕

Please Note

Late Edit: I have presented facts here like a citizen journalist and produced a critical report.  The health infrastructure in the JNU campus is a crying need which has been an issue raised by everyone in the campus [including all parties]. Hopefully it will be addressed better late than never.

  1. Maswood says:

    Very sad, I am shocked to learn that facility provided by health centre of JNU

  2. Alaknanda says:

    This is really sad. I hope the long-standing demand of JNUSU finally gets heard and acted upon. I didn’t know that the ambulance was devoid of any facilities. It better change soon.
    A candle from me, everyday till it happens.

  3. Karthik says:

    This is disgusting.. When are the authorities going to wake up??? We already had the SAME issue with IIT-KGP just last year or so… Please, let us not sacrifice any more young lives just due to lack of infrastructure…

  4. Abhinandan says:

    Mr. Gupta, Please stop misquoting people. I never said that Aishvarya’s parents should take JNU to court.

  5. Abhinandan says:

    As I recall it, when I confirmed that the “Health Booklet” mentions a 24 hour ambulance service, I remarked “They can take JNU to court (on this ground). And if they do so, the Administration will be screwed.” As you notice, there is a subtle difference. It was in hindi, of course.

  6. Richa says:

    Its a very shocking issue. This incident should not be ignored and JNU administration should take required measures to prevent further mishappenings.

  7. Abhinandan says:

    Also, I’d appreciate if hostel banter doesn’t suddenly become public statement, which it wasn’t meant to be in the first place.

  8. Sukhbir Singh Rattan says:

    Really a very shocking incident.I don’t know what administrations or unions will going to do but SIT have really lost a good student….

  9. Reema says:

    really sad and shocking 🙁

  10. Solilo says:

    This is sad and shocking. 🙁

  11. govind says:

    he was my childhood friend….he had asthama but it was always under control…had he been given proper medical attention…he’s no more,how can they be so indifferent and careless….they boast of being india’s apex university…located in the “heart” of the national capital……and then they are giving lame excuses…shameless….

  12. Sumit says:

    It is really shameful.I know Aishwarya since my class 11th, he was there with me in IIT JEE Coaching and he took admission in DPS RKpuram and we resided in the same hostel after 12th for our IITJEE coaching.It is really paining to see him die in such a pathetic cndition at such a prestigious instiute.Shame on JNU administration.

    May his soul rest in peace and god give enough courage to his family to bear this trauma.

  13. Ankit srivastava says:

    This is a shame on the face of JNU which has been acclaimed as an educational hub for aspiring students all over the world.How come an emeritus University with such an outstanding student population doesn’t even bother to provide basic health facilities,blaming just on some damn UGC mandate???Nobody has answers for the so called beautification process of the LUSH-GREEN(!!!!) JNU campus.When u don’t have even a simple 24*7 medical facility,how come you boast of a student friendly University.Just one reason comes instantly…stinking bureaucracy….engulfing the whole system of this country…!!!
    Have some shame you sleeping cocoons….break off your shells…..Come out….wake up…its high time…!!!!!!!

  14. Ronak says:

    Really sad to read this post… some basic things really need to taken care of at such institutions…

  15. Simarjeet says:

    Now this bitter incident is not just something to be sad about or lament upon but a shame on this so called one of the best univerties.Students work hard as beasts to crack it’s entrance exams n’ get into this fakely prestigious university unware of the fact that it doesn’t even support the basic medical facilities which cud be found even in a rural hospital.So, plz authorities ponder over ur irresponsibilities before it gets too late.And all u students out there pray for him,so he may lay in peace.

  16. Hemant says:

    I was just told about this incident by one of my undergraduate friends, who is now a student at JNU. It’s really disappointing to know that a university like JNU, which boasts of being one of the top notch universities in the country, does not have even the basic infrastructure/medical facilities. I hope this incident makes the government/management realize that they need to wake up and revamp the whole medical situation in every university/school in India. I appreciate Mr. Vikas Gupta’s efforts for bringing this incident to light. My heartfelt condolences to Aishvarya’s family and friends.

    Thanks,

    Hemant

    I’m somehow too shaken by what happened with Aishvarya. Even though I’m sitting in Washington DC, I keep reading all the updates on this incident. May i request Vikas to keep posting all the updates here, if possible.

    Thanks,

    For an eternally joyful soul: 
    I know him as dear little child “Chaitanya”.  You know him as Aishvarya. I was missing him yesterday and the day before in Hong Kong. 
    I was thinking of him and  gifts of his paintings from his childhood which needed a proper frame and a better place on my office wall, unawares that now I would need one more ( of those frame )…I am totally shattered by grief and disbelief…
    He was the kindest soul. He cared to call me nearly everyday last winter …often few times a day…from his college at Allahabad. This was during my India visit when I was grieving for my mother’s unexpected death.  He remembered to cheer me each time with text messages and calls.  Once, when he discovered that I have not been to movies in past ten years, he travelled hard after class only for an evening to Gorakhpur and returned to Allahabad the following morning back to class. he came just to take me to a movie on its first day first show with his entire family.  He did it only to cheer up his parents and me.  His profound words and gentlest of smile would light up my heart instantly. These are my last moments enjoyed with our dear child.  
    Loss for his Babuji,  Ma, Dadi, Jiji, Bua, Phuphaaji, Mama, Mami and  cousins is just too big to express. 

    I pen down the slightest trace of my ‘absolute’ sorrow here, just to let you know that he will continue forever to be cherished in our hearts.

    Also I find it “necessary” to urge Vikas,  student community and media to break the myth of so called elite institutions in India;  where only students and few teachers uphold the value of prestige, merit and scholarship.  Rest of it is a farce!  A SHAME !! 

    IF there is any accountability whatsoever for this tragedy, then would irresponsible people please take a moment to close there eyes and consider this loss of the ONLY CHILD for a father and a mother ?  and the grief of a grandmother whose only son’s only offspring is mercilessly snatched away forever ?

    These Admin-Big-Wigs usually maneuver quite well to secure admissions into ( these touted to be elite ) colleges for their  kids, therefore they must also remember that God forbid, one day similar could happen to their OWN child.  
    This tragedy is a consequence of their INaction to rectify a long standing problem of not providing appropriate health facilities on a so called ( shamefully ) PRESTIGIOUS campus, is unforgivable SIN.

    rupamanjari ghosh and all other great faculties have nothing to do with this they are enjoying there job and will not do anything.

    I am telling you one fact why these people have nothing to do how students are residing in the campus.

    Rupamanjari ghose have a dog if it is not mad it is dengourous as it attacks people who go on the road in front of Dr. Ghose house. I was a victime many times of that dog and complaint about that to Dr. ghose. But no improvment.

    I fear if another accident will take place or JNU community will listen that another student have died of ‘Dog Bite’.

    I tell you more things the issue of health services and health insurence was taken by Y4E so many times even health insurence and proper vaccination plan was discussed in school of life science and put forward before the administration and before the 11 th UGC plan commetti. But no response from the rest of the JNU community and JNUSU is ther only to cheat students not to spread the awareness about all these.
    with sorrow and frustation i must say JNU community is no better than illiterate indian community who are foolled by these politicians from past thousands of years.

    Why Stanford University was founded ?
    ————
    Illiterate soul is bankrupt of any wisdom, neglects constructive action and negates education ( accredited certifications ). It is a dangerous ‘time bomb’ ; when left ticking at various campuses of prestige and among “such educated” elite.

    I post this here for all us to learn
    and most importantly as a reference resource for Vice Chancellor of JNU , his cronies at UGC , political circuit and self centered citizens.
    ————
    A real life story : Stanford University :

    A lady in a faded grey dress and her husband, dressed in a home-spun suit walked in timidly without an appointment into the Harvard University President’s outer office.
    The secretary could tell in a moment that such backwoods, country hicks had no business at Harvard
    and probably didn’t even deserve to be in Harvard.

    “We want to see the President “the man said softly.

    “He’ll be busy all day “the secretary snapped.

    “We’ll wait” the lady replied.

    For hours the secretary ignored them, hoping that the couple would finally become discouraged and go away.
    They didn’t and the secretary grew frustrated and finally decided to disturb the president..

    “Maybe if you see them for a few minutes, they’ll leave” she said to him.
    The President, stern faced and with dignity, strutted toward the couple.

    The lady told him “We had a son who attended Harvard for one year. He loved Harvard. He was happy here. But about a year ago, he was accidentally killed.
    My husband and I would like to erect a memorial to him, somewhere on campus.”

    The president wasn’t touched…..He was shocked.

    “Madam “he said gruffly, ” we can’t put up a statue for every person who attended Harvard and died.
    If we did, this place would look like a cemetery.”

    “Oh, no,” the lady explained quickly” We don’t want to erect a statue.
    We thought we would like to give a building to Harvard.”

    The president rolled his eyes. He glanced at the gingham dress and homespun suit, and then exclaimed,
    “A building! Do you have any earthly idea how much a building costs?
    We have over seven and a half million dollars in the physical buildings here at Harvard.”

    For a moment the lady was silent. The president was pleased.. Maybe he could get rid of them now..
    The lady turned to her husband and said quietly,
    “Is that all it costs to start a university ? Why don’t we just start our own?”

    Her husband nodded. The president’s face wilted in confusion and bewilderment.
    Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford got up and walked away, traveling to Palo Alto, California
    where they established the University that bears their name: – Stanford University,
    a memorial to a son that Harvard no longer cared about.
    ————————————–
    Most of the time we judge people by their outer appearance, which can be misleading.
    And in this impression, we tend to treat people badly by thinking they can do nothing for us..
    Thus we tend to lose our potential good friends, employees or customers.

    Remember

    In our Life, we seldom get people with whom we want to share & grow our thought process.

    Dear Vikas

    Since Stanford story is disputed could you please remove it from this blog until it is confirmed or proven to be incorrect. This was circulated in among my extended clan recently a; I have taken it on face value and shared it here in a very specific context.

    At a time of personal loss I do not wish to inflict disrespect and or hurt sentiments of entities or individuals.

  25. shruti(aishvarya's sister) says:

    Aishvarya’s loss is irreversible n irrepairable for our entire lifetime…nothing in the world can evr fill the space created by him …all for the beautiful heart n the sparkling smile he always had…reasons can be any for a full stop in life but in Aishvarya’s case it was solely JNU… hope the university realises the pain n loss his absence has caused to his family n dear ones for NEVER ANYONE ELSE SHOULD BREATHE LAST IN JNU FOR LACK OF MEDICAL AID.

  26. Gauri says:

    Congratulations !

    Congratulation also to JNU, for being provided with the most basic facility;
    and now many a precious lives of sons and daughters living on campus will at least have a chance….of survival…of having a future.

    Hope that now JNU administration will continue its efforts to implement corrective measures to improve upon its callous negligence.

    This most basic human necessity must be made mandatory at every school/ university which is subsidized either by the tax-payer’s money or funded by a ‘fat fee’.
    ( considering for most parents ‘fat fee’ actually is hard earned education fund for their child’s future )

    ….a living future !

  29. Alok Varma , Aishvarya's Uncle says:

    Aishvarya’s untimely demise is not only a loss for us but it is a loss to the nation as well, we lost , a loving son, a brilliant scholar and a great human being just because of lack of medical facilities at one of the prestegious and premier Institution in the world. We are just claiming advancement in technology, infrastructure and facilities but this incident is compelling us for introspection. To avoid any such mishappening and loss to the nation in future let’s join hands together.

  30. Vikas Gupta says:

    Part II of the report has been updated. The JNU administration [as you may have read in the papers by now] has agreed for certain basic medical facilities in the campus including a full-fledged ambulance [with a paramedic] and the health centre will be open round the clock from 29 September 2009.

    The students have also suggested that that the Ambulance be dedicated to the memory of Aishvarya. This would be the tribute to his departed soul from whole JNU community.

    The SIT students have also written to the JNU VC to call Aishvarya’s parents to come to JNU to dedicate new Ambulance to JNU community.

    Please click here and see the updates towards the end of the report: http://vikas-gupta.in/2009/09/15/protests-intensify-with-another-death-in-jnu-campus-a-multimedia-report/

    May Aishvarya’s soul rest in peace!

  31. Hoi says:

    JNU must always remember Aishvarya.

    Dedicate ambulance to Aisvarya’s memory.

    “We wish that the Ambulance be dedicated to the memory of Aishvarya. This would be the tribute to his departed soul from whole JNU community.
    Furthermore we request the administration to call Aishvarya’s parents to come to JNU to dedicate new Ambulance to JNU community.”
    ( Quoted excerpt from the SIT students’ letter to JNU VC B.B. Bhattacharya)

  32. Manay says:

    JNU administration must respect the departed soul by Dedicating Abmbulace to Aishvarya’s Memory !

  33. hoi says:

    I hope other parents of JNU students are taking note of this breakthrough and hopefully parents will do something by grouping up and getting organized to continue with ( students) effort to seek improvement in such area where required.

  34. sunil balani says:

    it is sad and a matter of grave concern. we cant afford to lose human resource for lack of facilities.It is high time that people realize that good time and bad time are separated only by a split second, specially in emergency.Sad but we are wise only after the event.
    The question is have we become wiser in this case I mean, have the things changed after the incident or do they continue to be symbolic?
