Chennai, June 23 | The cyber crime division of the Chennai police has started cracking its whip on obscene content on social media and web portals and video platforms including YouTube.

The active deletion and increased monitoring of these social media platforms commenced after YouTuber Madhan Manickam and his wife Kruthika, who had uploaded several obscene content on their YouTube channels, were arrested.

The Chennai cyber cops, according to a top official in the department, have already deleted more than 600 obscene videos from social media, web platforms as well as from YouTube. This is excluding the contents which the department has deleted from the three YouTube channels of Madhan and his wife.

When the cops received a complaint from veteran Tamil Comedian actors, Senthil and Charlie, the fake Twitter account was deleted within half an hour on receipt of the complaint.

The Chennai cyber police have already deleted around 80 contents uploaded on YouTube platforms belonging to massage parlours and Tattoo centres. The cyber crime wing sleuths told IANS that around 400 YouTube contents of Madhan Manickam’s channels, “Toxic Madan 18+”, “PUBG Madan girl fan”, “Richie Gaming” and “Madam” have been deleted.

The cyber wing has also deleted videos uploaded on cosmetic treatment and with other obscene content and, according to Cyber wing, around 120 such videos were deleted in the past ten days.

Chennai City Police commissioner, Shankar Jiwal told IANS, “We will be strengthening the cyber wing. We have an excellent rapport with all the social media providers and they are responding as soon as we communicate with them. The department is balancing derogatory content and freedom of speech”.

An official statement from the commissioner’s office has requested the members of the common public who felt offended by the obscene content of Madhan Manickam to send their complaints to dcpccbl@gmail.com. The commissioners office said that the details of those who have filed the complaints would be kept confidential.

Cyber crime officials said that they were receiving 10 complaints a day but after the arrest of YouTuber Madan Manickam, the number of complaints has increased to 50 cases per day.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
