Ragging leads to serious consequences not only for the victims and their parents. Ragging is an act which causes, or is likely to cause physical, psychological or physiological harm or apprehension or shame or embarrassment to a student. It includes teasing, abusing or playing practical jokes or causing hurt to any student or asking them to do any act, or perform anything which he/she would not, in the ordinary course, be willing to do. However, there can be more effective, enjoyable and healthy ways of interacting! The consequences of ragging are many. Students under severe stress may leave the educational system, or may suffer from serious psychological trauma and post-traumatic stress disorders.
