Many agencies who live on sending students from India to US for higher studies have said that queries to their offices have been affected severely. Three back to back missing and finding dead body of Indian American students send tremors to the student community who live in USA now. The recent one is the death of Pravin Varughese of Southern Illinois University. His nearly a week-long disappearance came to a tragic end as the 19-year-old teenager’s body was discovered in Carbondale, Illinois. He was a sophomore at SIU pursuing a degree in criminal justice.

Family and friends have scoured the entire Carbondale area over the last six days looking for any sign of Varughese, who was officially reported as missing by his 20 year-old sister Priya on Thursday. Just yesterday, his family offered $15,000 in reward money for anyone who could offer information leading to their son’s discovery.

Varughese was last seen at an off-campus party wearing a red t-shirt, jeans, and was unshaven. Memorial services are likely being planned for the young man, although no official announcements have been made by the family. SIU will likely be extending counseling services for students coping with the loss of their friend and fellow classmate.

Details regarding who found the body and how it was found remain scarce. Police forensics teams have not yet determined nor revealed exactly how long the body had been in the field, leaving several gaping holes in the mystery of what exactly happened during Varughese’s unfortunate final hours. His disappearance last Wednesday night has already left the local SIU community reeling, but news of his demise is sure to devastate his family, friends, and the southern Illinois community. 

Both American Africans and American Indians have been alleging the blind discrimination exist in SIU campus. Many University campuses have been reported the story of unadulterated racism. Lately a black student official issued a campus-wide claims black students at SIU have “experienced more pure, unadulterated racism in one semester”. American Indians have also responded heavily against racism of SIU campus. Some students organizations have called attention to a recent incident of university students explicitly advocating racist violence against American Indians in general .

Earlier, one Brown University student, Sunil Tripathi had found dead. The missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, 22, who was also mistakenly identified as a suspect in the Boston bombings and his family hounded by so called amateur investigators of the website Reddit, has been found dead in the waters of a river near Providence, Rhode Island. Tripathi, a Philosophy major, who was missing since March 16th from Brown and had left home without his cell phone and wallet, was identified today by the Rhode Island medical examiner’s office who examined the body found in the river.

Both are in metropolitan cities with good options for hostels, PG accommodations, food and entertainment. Cultural activities are equally good as is the faculty and study methodology.

But, we are here to tell you when and why you can avoid IIT Mumbai.

Mumbai IIT was earlier placed in the suburbs, away from the crowds, giving IITians the space and peace to pursue their career goals. Today the area in Powai is surrounded by high rise building, malls and traffic snarls, bringing with it all the clatter and patter of a metropolitan hub. Just like the population and popularity of Powai and its neighbouring areas has grown, so has the quality of education at thi…
