This initiative started after Prakash the student who has subscription for Netflix changed his password. Affected students demanded hostel warden to intervene after Prakash refused to share his new password.

“Prakash is from an affluent family. His one imported deodorant is costlier than what I pay for mess fees. He can afford subscription for all online video streaming platforms. What about aam hostel students like us? Humare paas cigarettes ke liye paisa nahin hai, Netflix subscription kahan se le”, asked Pradeep, batchmate of Prakash. “Are we supposed to survive four years by watching free channels like Rajya Sabha TV and free Republic TV’s World Shouting Entertainment during Arnab hours”, he added.

“From childhood teachers taught us to understand the value of sharing. When Prakash is not doing that, why our hostel superintendent and warden are silent. We asked our mess supervisor to stop Prakash’s daana pani. But he is not doing anything. Lagta hai Prakash has shared his new password with these people” told another student.

“Modi Ji thinks about himself. He wants one election so that he does campaigning only once, rest of the five-year term he can roam around world. What about students like us? Unless our hostel authority agrees to our demand of common Netflix password, our strike will go on”, told a student leader.
