Ragging has been a longtime issue, especially marking the social lives of young undergrads in India. Over the recent couple decades however, the rowdyism involved has proliferated unbidden, and the gravity of the matter has hence drawn much addressing and action at various levels. 

In accord with which, Bollywood comes up with a concept unexplored previously, bringing forth the solemn situation and its many perils.

For the uninitiated, ragging defines tasks assigned by senior students to freshers - which as by norm were merely in the lighter vein. The nuisance of ragging in recent times however has ranged from being beaten up to being molested, even raped by seniors. The latter of issues often remains unattended, much less duly punished, because the victims remain subdued, fearful and/or too ashamed to come up front, confess and complain. Unfortunately, the one year freshers, become next years' seniors, and the cycle continues to exist like a vicious circle.

Bollywood's upcoming film Hostel is based of this very same problem that continues to plague the lives of many young students in the current educational set up.
