9) You are working as an Assistant Professor in an autonomous college. From day one you observed that boys and girls used to sit separately in your class. You come to know that the college management had issued strict warning to students to not to mingle or sit together anywhere in college campus. You are against such views and decide to encourage your students to mingle each other.
Even though you tried your best to encourage them to interact with each other and sit together at least inside the class, you were unsuccessful in persuading them. A new batch of students, however, needed no such persuasion. Few girls and boys who were previously schoolmates were social both inside and outside of the class. But soon they were reprimanded and warned by the college management. However, you allowed them to sit together in your class. The college management came to know about this and suspended you and those girls and boys who used to sit together in your class.
