1. INNOCENCE: The most visible trait of a child. You will be deceived, cheated, badly treated. But don’t let the coldness of others harden you. Be a child,be forgiving, spread the warmth.
2. THIRST for KNOWLEDGE: Be inquisitive, learn new things,pick up a hobby, travel around the world, make things better for people around you. just don’t stagnate. Let the child within you become wise and not aged.
3. SMILE: Lost in our work, we often forget to smile and then succumb to the pressures that come with age. Remember the most potent tool we have. A smile is enough to empower you to handle things cheerfully. Smile unconditionally
Certainly no one could forget the notorious genocide in the Adlof Hitler’s Nazi Germany in which approximately 6 million European Jews were systematically murdered using large scale gas-chambers.
Yes, even today the excruciating pain is inexplicable. Indeed, Delhi has been converted into an isolated gas-chamber; 100% upsurge in Cardiovascular, Respiratory ailments in merely 5 days. Other immediate effects are intense cough, throat infection & choking, pneumonia etc. Consequently, govt. has declared Public health emergency.
Residents have evidently been subjected to grave humanitarian crisis which would prove as disastrous in long term.
Plausibly,This corroborates my assertion of the Holocaust in Delhi.
Abdication of Govt.- both the union and the concerned state governments have been failed in discharge of their key role of Welfare authority as envisaged in the Constitution.
1)Curb stuble burning in the adjacent states, which is the prominent reason behind the crisis, by providing efficient crop residue disposing techniques and feasible alternatives like incentive or subsidies.
2)check vehicular and industrial pollution
3)restrain rampant illegal construction.
4)Increase in green cover like recreational parks.
5) massive scale campaign for awareness towards environment.
6)encouragement to use public transport
Our ‘persona’ can impress but being a candid,credible & genuine person can inspire others..
Indeed, our ‘charisma’& effervescense can impress but our character & magnanimity can inspire others..
The valuables & commodities we possess can certainly impress others but the values, vigour & vitality we hold and adhere by can inspire the world..
To make substantial & indelible impact on others life,you first need to be empowered and as far as my perspective is concerned education,in contemporary world,is most effective instrument to empower & invigorate any person.
#focus on learning instead of earning…
At 7.30 on an overcast evening, I was returning from my extra classes with lethargic mood due to of long day exhaustive schedule, walking along the footpath with earphones plugged in and listening to my favourite song playlist ( Ed sheeran). All of a sudden, I observed three boys (probably teenagers) on a bike( at a distance of approx. 200 mt.)were relentlessly harassing a girl( conspicuous by their gesture).
I decided to take further cognizance of the matter in order to avert the escalation of situation, prima facie it was pretty evident that they’re assaulting her and also passing lewd remarks( rather appalling). Certainly,If I’d not go to provide her aid circumstances may deteriorate further but as the matter of fact, I was outnumbered by them( as they were three) hence only an infallible and pragmatic tactic could prove as saviour.
Immediately, without wasting a second, I pursued them and while chasing them I shouted emphatically( now about 20 mt. away), Police is about to reach here in 5 minutes ( as I pretended to be an acquaintance of the girl) and I have noted down your bike registration no. as well, if you don’t want to entangled in a mess then I recommend you’d move your ass! (exactly wordings). They’re out of options and compelled to left the place promptly.
I took deep breath because neither I called police nor noted down their registration no.( due to running out of time), she was looking petrified and trembling with dread. I, therefore, dropped the girl near her house.
Though Indian law doesn’t use the term ‘eve teasing’, victims usually seek recourse through Section 298 (A) and (B) of the Indian Penal Code, which sentences a man found guilty of making a girl or woman the target of obscene gestures, remarks, songs or recitation for a maximum jail tenure of three months.
-Section 292 of the IPC clearly spells out that showing pornographic or obscene pictures, books or slips to a woman or girl draws a fine of Rs.2000 with two years of rigorous imprisonment for first offenders. In case of repeated offence, the offender may have a fine of Rs.5000 with five years imprisonment imposed.
-Under Section 509 of the IPC, obscene gestures, indecent body language and acidic comments directed at any woman or girl carries a penalty of rigorous imprisonment for one year or a fine or both.
-The ‘National Commission for Women’ (NCW) has also proposed Eve Teasing (New Legislation) 1988
-Eve-teasing has been a notoriously difficult crime to prove, as perpetrators often devise ingenious ways to attack women, even though many feminist writers term it as “little rapes”] and usually occur in public places, streets, and public transport.
If not me then who? If not now then when? Start taking responsibility and bring the desired change rather than anticipating from others. Certainly, you can make a difference because “World can change from your example not your opinion”….
Entire essence of spirituality is about understanding of your internal mechanism( mystic thoughts, ideology, belief and convictions)
Albeit, meditation has numerous desirable implications in all facets of life but the most significant & conspicuous impact is it facilitate thorough understanding to explore the human mind.
Since primordial age, human beings able to develop technology after they developed better understanding of natural laws.
For instances :1) the understanding of concepts of friction led to discovery of fire.2) understanding of the secrets of DNA and genetics enabled us to conquer many diseases.3) laws of aerodynamics(from birds) to develop planes.
All I want to unravel is that,at the end of day it solemnly matters how much know & understand yourself in pursuit of your Lakshya.
A recently published Global Hunger Index report 2017,by Washington based IFPRI(International Food Policy Research Institute),has left me pretty abashed.
It candidly manifests India’s serious rampant hunger & malnutrition problem.
Accordingly,India occupies 100th position among 119 developing countries, lagging behind North Korea and Iraq.
While countries like Chile, Cuba and Turkey have a GHI score of less than 5 and ranked the best among developing nations, nations like Chad and Central African Republic fare the worst with a score of 43.5 and 50.9, respectively.
India’s poor performance brings to the fore the disturbing reality of the country’s stubbornly high proportions of malnourished children—more than one-fifth of Indian children under five weigh too little for their height and over a third are too short for their age, IFPRI said in a statement.
The GHI score is a multidimensional index composed of 4 parameters-
– proportion of under-nourished in the population.
-under 5 child mortality.
-under 5 child stunting( shortness for age).
-under 5 child wasting( low weight for height).
The way out-
-Revise Indian calorie norms in view of widespread mechanisation, and urge world bodies to follow suit.
-Combat critics spinning data with counter-spin. Spin your own emphasis on gender equality to say it also attacks maternal mortality and child stunting. Spin your Swachh Bharat scheme to boast that, as the first politician to aim for an open- defecation-free India, you target not just cleanliness but malnutrition. ——-Finally, implement the Food Security Act’s promised cash benefit to pregnant and lactating women, naming this project after Deen Dayal Upadhyaya.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.” Mother Teresa
On hearing the word ‘red-light’, the very image that pops up in our mind is of a flesh trade where ladies sell their body for money and we call them sex workers. But, often we forget that there is a reason for every person to do what they do, and for these women we are in a hurry to jump into a conclusion rather then understanding their plight.
It is a matter of ‘only choice’ left for them to survive in this heartless world. Though, many of them are doing it as a part of family tradition while hundreds others are being enforced into this derogatory trade against their will. And the very reason behind it is the growing network of human trafficking, sexual slavery and other forms of commercial sexual exploitation.
Causes of prostitution:
· Ill treatment by parents.
· Bad company.
· Family prostitutes.
· Social customs.
· inability to arrange marriage,
· Lack of sex education, media.
· Prior incest and rape.
· Early marriage and desertion.
· Lack of recreational facilities, ignorance, and acceptance of prostitution.
· Economic causes include poverty and economic distress.
· Psychological causes include desire for physical pleasure, greed, and dejection.
Notorious red light districts of India include GB Road in Delhi, Sonagachi in Kolkata, Kamathipura in Mumbai, Budhwar Peth in Pune and Reshampura in Gwalior. There are around 3 million prostitutes in the country and their number is increasing, as informed by Lok Sabha. Most of the girls are brought from Nepal and Bangladesh. ”Young girls are trafficked from Nepal to brothels in Mumbai and Kolkata at an average age of twelve. They are trapped into the vicious cycle of prostitution, debt and slavery. By the time they are in their mid-twenties, they are at the dead end. In modern India different kinds of prostitution is prevailing apart from prostitutes in brothel there are:
· Street prostitutes
· Bar dancers
· Call girls
· Religious prostitutes
· Escort girls
· Road side brothel
· Child prostitutes
· Fricatrice prostitutes
· Gimmick prostitutes
· Beat prostitutes
Every hour, four women and girls in India enter prostitution, three of them against their will.
Is prostitution legal in India?
As far as laws are concerned, prostitution in India is not illegal per se. However, Indian penal code states that certain activities related to prostitution are contraventions of law. They may be enumerated as below:
• Soliciting such services at public places
• Carrying out such activities in hotels
• Kerb crawling
• Being an owner of a brothel or even running one
Now the situation is such that the aforementioned activities are integral to the profession itself. So, does by outlawing them the Indian legal system say that prostitution is effectively illegal? That is a question that needs to be pondered seriously.
Shall India legalize prostitution?
Some people opine that prostitution shall be made legal in India and accept them as a part of society because the problem of prostitution is inevitable. The benefit of legalizing prostitution in India will be that atleast we will have a track record of Sexworkers as for example when dance bar in Bombay were closed most of the bar dancers migrated to Gujarat and Karnataka and other neighbouring state and started their business undercover. Legalising prostitution will see these women, who live life on the edge everywhere, gaining access to medical facilities, which can control the spread of AIDS. There is a very strong need to treat the sex industry as any other industry and empower it with legal safeguards. The practical implications of the profession being legal would bring nothing but benefits for sex workers and society as a whole. Keeping prostitution illegal also contributes to crime because many criminals view prostitutes and their customers as attractive targets for robbery, fraud, rape, or other criminal acts. The criminals realize that such people are unlikely to report the crimes to police, because the victims would have to admit they were involved in the illegal activity of prostitution when the attacks took place, now if it is legal then they will easily go and report this to police.
-Legalization of prostitution and the sex industry will stop sex trafficking.
-Legalization of prostitution will control the sex industry.
-Legalization of prostitution will decrease clandestine, hidden, illegal and street prostitution.
-Legalization of prostitution will protect the women in prostitution as they will have rights.
-Women in systems of Prostitution want the sex industry legalized as they are the one who suffers the most as they don’t have any rights.
-Legalization of prostitution will promote women’s health as they can have easy access to medical facilities which they don’t have when it is illegal.
Recognizing prostitution as an economic activity, thus enabling women in India to obtain working permits as “sex workers”.
Thus either India shall legalize prostitution which is the most suitable step that can be taken or shall make such deterrent laws as to curve up the problem of prostitution. Laws should not be such as to just remove the prostitutes but also to change the mentality of people who are interested in paid sex by punishing them in such a manner that people of same mentality will dare to indulge themselves in similar activities.
