my suggestion :
yes we would come up with alternate content ( not complete syllabus but
otuline )  send a letter to vtu, meet vtu and convince of the context
and finally go on campaign - candle light vigil if it doesnt work out..

	An alternate suggestion to a dharna/protest ..... why not ask
	volunteers taking part in the dharna to use the same
organisational time
	and energy in developing some curriculum content , and
approaching the
	powers-that-be in VTU to reconsider the tie-up with MS !?

i too feel this is the best idea ,
i think people from industry / academics with like minded can design an
alternate curriculum and demonstrate to BOE Chairman of respective
autonomous and as well non -autonomous colleges 

 but a protest would definitely send the message to VTU and M$
