  1. Let's start with a cartoon about an insomniac programmer (Abstruse Goose).

  2. IIM-K becomes the first IIM to breach the 30 percent barrier for women in an MBA class. Its class of 2012 has 100 women and 200 men.

  3. T. Vasu Babu: One Night @IISc. Spooky!

  4. Delhi University enters the 21st century -- but only selectively -- by introducing the semester system for its science courses.

  5. In a move similar to the one it took when scandal and fraud hit Satyam, the Government of India has effectively taken over the Medical Council of India.

  6. Let's end with a cartoon on successful blogging (xkcd).

    If not the semester system, what academic term does the Delhi University follow? Is it a quarter system (unlikely), or horror, a year-long term? Why is there so much opposition to changing to a semester system? What other universities in India still follow anything other than a semester system?

    The 30-percent *barrier*
    Your way of putting it has me imagining physical walls running down 1/3 of each classroom at the IIX with warders and enforcers chucking out any lady that dares to climb across :-)
