My heart bleeds for the students who perished in the Beas river tragedy. It is great loss which could have been avoided if the authorities were vigilant. My prayers goes to the friends and family of the bereaved.
This tragedy brings into open the importance of imparting sufficient awareness on HSE matters, especially on Safety. As usual, the local authorities are trying to escape with regular excuses. However, I wish the students, were aware to and alert and reacted to the warning signs, they might have escaped from this disaster.
It is a warning sign to the academicans around the world to incorporate and give more emphasise on HSE as an important subject of curriculum from the school days.
