No, the eligibility to become vice-chancellor requires at least 10 years of experience as a professor.Data shows that only a few women university teachers reach that level Despite a good number of women becoming lecturers very few of them make it as HoDs and deans In state universities state norms are applied In some of them administrative services officers are given additional charge of vice-chancellor But do they do justice to the additional charge In central universities vice-chancellors are appointed for five-year tenures Thus for five years they are the principal academic and executive officer of the university Can’t a women shoulder this responsibility efficiently There can be no doubt about awoman’s leadership and administrative capabilities They have proved to be excellent teachers and outstanding administrators There must be something in our system that keeps women distant from higher academic posts If we look at the data for Indian universities there are 87262 male professors and 29285 women professors There are 124631 male associate professors whereas only 63965 women associate professors almost half in number At the position of assistant professor there are571828 men and 374349 women As the numbers suggest as we go to the upper rungs of the ladder we find lesser number of women What can be done to remove this glass ceiling The state of affairs and perception about women’s administrative abilities need to change Vice-chancellor is the highest position in a university and it also mirrors government’s views on women We need to have a balanced picture The recent statement of the HRD minister Smriti Irani in the science congress is also indicative of the same social malady that all family responsibility is dumped on women only A male academician’s only concern is career but women academicians don’t have the same luxury as they have to juggle workplace and home Most of the time the child-rearing responsibility is not shared in equal measure withthehusband as a result of which a womanlags behind in career growth Our society isn’t liberal enough to compensate a womanfor the lost time and opportunity When it comes to research or scientific pursuits a woman often ends up sacrificing her career A welcome step has been taken by the HRD minister recently to encourage women and the differently-abled to pursue research UGC has relaxed norms allowing students eight years instead of the present six to complete PhD and three years instead of two to complete the MPhil degree In addition she has increased maternity child care leave up to 240 days for women candidates As HRD ministry is more sensitive to gender issues now this seems to be the time some corrective measures will fill the gap at the top level of the academia

(Representational Image) Top News Scientists including those of Indian-origin have created a wearable device that can track a person’s movements ambient environment and bio-signals and could help monitor dementia patients and diagnose diseases early The device may also be used in combat training for soldiers researchers said The device developed by researchers including Debraj De a postdoctoral fellow and Sajal K Das department chair of computer science at Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) in the US is going to be tested for patient rehabilitation and routine evaluation “The smart chair and the wearable device are new noninvasive strategies for earlier diagnosis and represent a partnership among scientists and physicians said Mignon Makos from the Phelps County Regional Medical Centre (PCRMC) in the US The sensing device which looks like an over-sized watch has four basic functions It records fine-grained movement like fitness trackers and measures the wearer’s direct physical environment for temperature humidity and barometric air pressure It also will track health status through heart rate respiration rate and galvanic skin response “A person’s skin reacts to stimuli through the sympathetic nervous system producing a weak electrical current that indicates the wearer’s emotional state such as being startled or agitated” De said The sensing device has functions like Global Positioning System (GPS) and communication with Bluetooth beacons in proximity for various location contexts The multi-modal sensor data can unveil fine-grained user activity and behaviour contexts powered by machine learning-based analytics The wearable device has real-time data communication and analysis capability The entire system is designed to support body multi-positional sensing applications as well where the device can be worn on other body parts researchers said For those rehabilitating and those with dementia the ability to track their fine-grained activities and behaviour measure their heart rate and locate them indoor or outdoor helps healthcare providers keep tabs on their patients The GPS function is especially helpful with dementia patients who can wander away from home and not know how to return For the army the device has different functions said Steve Tupper Missouri S&T’s liaison at Fort Leonard Wood – a US Army installation With the heart rate monitor and respiration tracker and the device can see if a soldier under training is gun shy -afraid and hesitant to squeeze the trigger during rifle training It
