Courses that make you go huh?

Every once in a while you come across things that don\\\’t make sense. Like, studying for exams, caller tunes, girls crying, et al. JAM has now taken it upon itself to add to this long list and bring to you, in every issue, one totally whacky course that you will probably not sign up for.\\r\\n\\r\\nName: Certificate Course in Jainology\\r\\nInstitute: Mumbai University\\r\\nDuration: One year (Part Time)\\r\\nEligibility: The candidates must have cleared SSC/HSC/Diploma/Degree course.\\r\\nFees: Rs 1,300 (for a full year)\\r\\nCourse Details: Even though the concept of having a full fledged course on Jainism is perhaps a tad strange, we are further baffled by the subjects they seem to be teaching in this course. \\\’Worship\\\’ is one such course. As if being born in India and practically being forced to go to temples wasn\\\’t enough, we now have courses where we can learn to worship more than we usually do and that too properly. Another one of the interesting subjects is, \\\’Non Violence\\\’. We just can\\\’t help imagining how they can teach non-violence to students. Are the students made to dress up like Gandhi and slapped on both cheeks? There are other subjects like \\\’Fast & Festivals\\\’ and \\\’Major World Religions\\\’. The less we say about them, the better.\\r\\n\\r\\nTamanna
