Axiologically speaking, the issue of humanization has been rather anthropocentric, for God has honored the progeny of Adam (PBOH). However, the absence of this doctrine has started many a conflagration, where current movements of rebellion manifest in their essence this preoccupation with individuals as human beings in and with the world. Who supposed to stand fast against the anthropological style of this age and cut one’s losses?!
Actually, universities across the globe tend not to only enlarge the mind and awaken the best energies of human nature, but also to ameliorate the hearts of mankind. However, for what is lacking cannot be counted, the wide spread of Sudanese universities, could not perform its duties in the service of Sudanese nation; for sorrow, these edifices are ahead of the pack in making fortune instead of preserving the connection between knowledge and the zest of life and uniting the young and the old in the imaginative consideration of bringing learning outside the classroom to help solving social problems.
Unreservedly, some mentalities that run these niches are as a blind squirrel finds a nut in a while. In spite of the fact that there are many efficient pedants, only the top bananas are mere dullards and full of baloney. I wonder how these goof up professional staff take the reins and poist themselves to make hypertrophied decisions?! It seems these professionals’ tree has not its roots in professionalism ground from which the yard wand will be made, and that will measure the influence that may be at stake in pressure in which the breadwinners, exactly those who are on part-time basis, are now maculating all their energies and esteem. That pressure is, at any time and in any shape, a most dreadful and deplorable calamity where blue and white collar pluggers need no sagacity to tell; but it is just because it is just a calamity, and must not for ever be impeding over who are in backstage at fancy of a feudal lord against drudgers, this lord should not be allowed to darken sloggers’ view of figures of peace and justice.
Absurdity is entirely manifested in ignorance, which does not intercede with God either. The greater your ignorance, the more people despite you and flee from you, while in any elite milieu it supposed to be in fusion of different academic institutions, without confusion; in the bringing together of patrons and peons, in the creating of a better common understanding among those whose interests are identical, who boxes and coxes, and who can never be in unnatural antagonism without deplorable results. However, the inconsistency of this binary (patrons and peons) is the root of Sudanese universities vulnerability where it should have been one of the chief principles of smelting the strata of society; nurturing this attitude makes the employees owe loyalty to the organization they are affiliated with. Otherwise, a great deal of bitterness and grudge among the peons and the patrons arises from an imperfect understanding of one another; as a consequence, the surmount is just hope against hope!
Individualistically, I have delayed acknowledging the courtesy of a university I am affiliated with and where I cut my teeth on, not because the least degree insensible to it, but for I deemed it probable that I might be leaving it and in case I shall not do so I wish to accept as well as appreciate its style for being a unique more female chauvinist academic institution across Africa, with which I have been honored. But although I am not going away just now, I regret that I am prevented by an intolerable cold which would render the sharpening of a saw, an infinitely more agreeable sound to such an institution than any observations from me.
In sum, it is a difficult thing for an individual to speak of themselves or their work. But perhaps I may, without impropriety, venture to say a word on the spirit in which mine mere conceived. I feel an earnest and humble desire, and I shall do it till to die, to increase the stock of harmless cheerfulness. I feel that the world is not utterly to be despired, that I am worthy of living for one reason or another. I was anxious, but not impaired, to find if I could, in the evil things, that the soul of goodness which God has put in me shown to me by my friends. This is certainly not antithetical to show that virtue may be found on the by-ways of any other sphere that it is not incompatible with poverty and even with rags, and to keep steadily through life.
