IITs are the most prestigious institutions of India and to get an admission there is a dream come true for most of the engineering aspirants of the country. Once a student gets admission there it is expected that s/he will get excellent quality education and facilities for the whole duration of next 4 years or more.
However, looks like even IIT mess is in the same league as other colleges who provide sub-par and below standard food items to the students.A student from IIT Delhi, Jashan Suri has shared the picture of a dead rat in IITs canteen food plate. The pic shows a dead rat in the chutney. Here is the pic that Jashan shared on Facebook
“So in the temple of technology, IIT DELHI, where students yearn for years to come,where professors incessantly keep blaring about the importance of studying and how they strive to provide us the best environment.
Today, in one of the hostels, a dead mouse was found in the chutney. A f**king dead mouse. The number of viruses, diseases that a mouse can spread by touching us is insane, let alone eating chutney made with the mouse.
I request you guys to share this photo and let everyone around you know, that all the hype around this college created by ignorant parents and these coaching institutions is a bloody farce. We live in fear of not only the surmounting academic pressure but also in fear of food poisoning, dengue, cholera dysentery and all the worst of diseases.
A f**king sacrilege.”
According to a report by Daily Pioneer, the rat was found in the plate of Jayant Darokar inside his South Indian Thali on Tuesday morning.Jayant told that the incident has shaken at least 400 students living at the Aravali Boys Hostel inside IIT Delhi.
The report quoted a 3rd year student as saying “On Tuesday morning, between 7:30 to 9:30 breakfast is served to us at the Boys Hostel mess. While we had taken our share of the food, one of the students, Jayant shrieked in terror when he found a small dead rat inside the thick white chutney in his thali.”
He further told that earlier also students have found dead cockroaches, ink, and honeybee inside their food. Following which they submitted complaints to the IIT-Delhi professors and the institute director but in vain.
