Politics At Its Best

Politics At Its Best
Before the start of 2013,the preparation for 2014 polls by political parties started in full swing. There are sessions of blame game,there are situations of credit grappling and of course partners swapping. Since 2012 opposition is finding ways to degrade the reputation of UPA government and Prime Minister,with inflation on a high and boom in scams of this government an early poll will be boon for opposition and that's where political game begins.
If any body wants to learn politics observe what is happening in India from 2012. There are so many scams unfolding each day but the big one came with coalgate where Prime Minister was also involved. Opposition took it as an opportunity and disrupted the Parliament's monsoon session without any work,FDI was to be discussed than that's where government played it's first card FDI was passed in the cabinet meeting and than the magic happens it also got passed in the Parliament (Yes,CBI played a crucial role…

Population Boom

Population Boom

We all know about the Spain train crash which kills about 80 people on Wednesday through media reports,this incident ignited another thought in me about our country. This Spanish train was carrying only 247 people in its peak time i.e for the pilgrimage destination Santiago de Compostela which is a very rare situation for such pilgrimage in India.

During festive seasons for Chatt Puja in Bihar or for Kumbh Mela in Allahabad our train runs with out of capacity passengers which carry thousands sitting inside as well as outside on top of the trains.A train carrying only 247 passengers may appear a joke for us because we see much more people only in a single carriage of a train. This is not because we have very few trains,our railway system is one of the biggest in the world but the problem lies in the fact that we are second most populated country in the world.

Our population is increasing rapidly and soon we will overtake China to be the most populated country in the wo…

Mid-day Meal

Mid-day Meal
Midday Meal Scheme started in 1960's involves provision of free lunch in weekdays in government schools. This programme started from Tamil Nadu in 1960's soon spread to other states and after 2001 Supreme Court court verdict it became mandatory for state governments to provide free meals to all students. Apart from protecting students from hunger this scheme also helps in increasing school enrollment and attendance,it improved socialization among children belonging to different castes,reduced malnutrition and empowered women by providing them employment.
Right since the Midday meal scheme gets widespread acceptance in all parts of India,it's misuse also started. Many schools in order to take extra ration show more students in their attendance register than actually enrolled and than sold extra ration in open market, grain distribution system for midday meal is full of corruption. In many schools lower castes students are devoid of midday meals by members of u…

Encounter-Licensed Killing

Encounter-Licensed Killing.
An encounter is a euphemism used in South Asia,especially in India to describe extrajudicial killings in which police or armed forces shoot down suspected gangsters and terrorists in gun battles. It started from Mumbai in India with killing of gangster Manya Surve,in year 1982 after that Mumbai police killed many gangsters to remove crime from the city. It was also used by many other state police departments in a move to give on the spot justice.
Encounter killings are criticized by human right commissions as it devoid alleged criminal a chance for a fair trial in the court of law. But if we look this phenomenon in a different light we pat police for there work. There are thousands and lacks of cases pending in Indian courts waiting for justice,cases of these dangerous criminals only add burden on our judicial system. Those killed by police in encounters are gangsters and terrorists dangerous for society police killed them when they try to escape from poli…
