It appears the officials at RSTM Nagpur University are so hooked up in their routine chores that they have forgotten to look around and check for finer points that form their image. In a sheer disrespect to their own flag, it has been hoisted half mast for the past few days at the University campus. Ironically, no official bothered to set it right.
The National Flag or the flag representing any organization is lowered to half mast only to signify the death of honored leaders or any person to the similar repute. Flag is positioned half mast to pay homage to these people.
However, how careless can the RTMNU authorities are, can be gauged by the way they had hoisted the National Flag as well as the University’s flag. The national Flag is hoisted slightly beside the university’s flag.
The officials who are in-charge of hoisting the flag obviously do not know the significance of hoisting the flag half mast or in improper position. In fact this act is tantamount to criminal offence and the official who has committed this offence is liable to be penalised.
Act of Shame…
