Accept initial losses

Sir, -- Huge sums of money are needed to run professional colleges, but the managements should be ready to suffer some initial losses for the sake of their social responsibilities. A student who has excelled in the entrance exam should get the opportunity to study without much economic burden. No student should be allowed to lose his opportunity solely due to the financial criteteria. The managements in course of time will surely recoup the investments and earn a profit too.
