Indian school names monkey god chairman

LUCKNOW, India (AP) — He’s a revered Hindu monkey god. And now, he’s the chairman of an Indian business school.

Hanuman, the popular god known for his strength and valor, has been named official chairman of the recently opened Sardar Bhagat Singh College of Technology and Management in northern India, a school official said Saturday.

The position comes with an incense-filled office, a desk and a laptop computer. Four chairs will be placed facing the empty seat reserved for the chairman and all visitors must enter the office barefoot, said Vivek Kangdi, the school’s vice chairman.

“It is our belief that any job that has the blessings of Lord Hanuman is bound to be a success,” said Kangdi.

Christians could learn a few things here. Hindus are out there putting statues in charge of colleges. Can you imagine if Liberty University was run by a monkey statue? Standards would rise dramatically.

You know, I can think of another school that would benefit. Also, I presume that a monkey god statue wouldn’t turn D.C. into a police state.

The uses are endless.

    I’m torn on this checkpoint issue. My gut reaction out of fear and panic and sadness — hell, there were 8 shootings yesterday in an area I drive through regularly as part of my commute — is to support it. But then I hear outside observers express concern about it, and I realize it is pretty “out there,” to be euphemistic about it.

    I wondered what you thought about it. It seems obviously absurd to me, but I’ve never lived anywhere with a serious crime problem.
