Support One-Child Policy & Change in Religious Celebrations

#1 - Bharat needs to adopt one-child policy

The recent report from UN has shown that Bharat will be the most populous nation on the earth very soon. It is urgent need that policy-makers do pay attention to this problem. Huge population will be putting burden on the system which is already short of resources such as food, water, house and clean air.

#2 - Bharat needs to control religious celebrations that harm nature

Policy-makers should appeal to all religions including Hindus, Muslims etc. for stopping their celebrations that damage natural resources. Muslims kill animals in masses on Eid where as Hindus burst crackers in Diwali and there are such celebrations in other religions too. Religious leaders need to be appealed and should help taking people from their respective communities in confidence to stop or minimize the effect of celebration over the nature. Ultimately, earth has limited resources for humankind and it is a high time that we all understand that and start making changes …

Bharat's Taxation System and Delivery of Promises

Namaste!

Bharat has seen number of leaders and politicians promising moons and stars to the public and once the election is over, the delivery of those promises are rarely seen. There is a huge importance put in for bhoomi-poojan, a traditional way of announcing the infrastructure work but less importance is given to the completion of work or the way it is completed. At times, bureaucracy goofs up and some times leaders. Public observe the system fail in providing basic necessities and social safety net which make them pessimistic about the politics and lot of people who are willing to be a part of the taxation system try and avoid paying taxes seeing that tax-payers money is either wasted or siphoned away by the corrupt elements.

Goods and Service Tax (GST) has brought some change to the taxation system and hopefully, we will have more people participating in tax system but again unless, we see delivery of better quality of services delivery in public domain, people will try and see…

Weapons, Wars Versus Poverty

Namaste!

It is high time that Bharat and its people decide to foot down and ask leaders to find out permanent solution for Kashmir and Naxalites. These two issues have been going on for almost seven decades and it is very unfortunate that both government and opposition have paid very little attention to it. Bharat has ranked 5th in the world by spending $55.9 bn in terms of expenditure on military [1]. Not that leaders are not trying but probably it is not enough given the serious problems such as poverty, population dying of hunger, poor infrastructure and public facilities - those could be addressed with the use of that kind of money and our coming generations need them. Bharat's 40.74 Crore (4074000)population is living below poverty line (BPL) as per 2017 which is more than 20% of the population of the country [2]. Not that countries sharing borders with Bharat are rich, they too are poor as well and people there do not have any great standard of living. Our leaders in Asia ne…

Rewards and Appreciation

नमस्ते।

I saw one of the Bollywood actors, Akshay Kumar in an interview with Anupam Kher saying appreciation of sportsman, social activists or anyone should be done monetarily and not by just giving certificates. He went on saying that every individual to achieve something spends money and needs money to work further upon his/her objective and hence, only certificate of appreciation is not enough. Especially, if it is youth whose parents has supported him/her to achieve success, in return, if youth gets prize money, his/her parents would be proud that their son/daughter has become money-earner - probably, the proudest feeling for parents.

I liked this idea.  

I see giving awards has become a business in many cases, that will stop to a great extent if the norm of prize money is followed, people receiving awards will get money that they can use for further work that they are into. 


लोकशाही,अभिव्यक्ति-स्वातंत्र्य और सेना

नमस्ते !

मेरे दादा  मानिकचंद लोढ़ा  भारत के स्वातंत्र के पहले की बात  कहते  तो बताते थे की ब्रिटिश सरकार का  कोई अफ़्सर गली से गुजरता हो तो पूरा माहौल शांत हो जाता था और कोई अफ़्सर के आगे आकर उनके खिलाफ जाने की हिम्मत जल्दी करता नहीं था ।
दर्द होता है अब हम पढ़ते और देखते है की कश्मीर में लोग हमारे अपने ही भारतीय सैनिकों पर पत्थर फेकते है और उन्हें एक तो शान्ति बरतनी पढ़ती है या फिर गैस या छर्रे से लोगो को जवाब देना पढता है। पुरे भारत से गिने चुने लोग तो लोकशाही में फ्रीडम ऑफ़ स्पीच या बात करने की मुक्तता को इस हद तक इस्तेमाल कर रहे है की उन्हें हमारे जवानों का अपमान या किसी भी व्यक्ति को ठेस पोहचाने की पूरी इजाजत मिल गयी हो।

मुझे पूरा भरोसा है की अगर भारतीय सरकार चाहे तो ठोस कदम उठाकर भारतीय सैनिकों की मदद से पूरी तरह से कश्मीर में जीवन स्थिर कर सकती है, सरकार ने कुछ नजदीक के सालों में यह दिखा दिया है की अगर वे मन बनाये तो चीज़े हो रही है।  वह फिर नोटबंदी हो या फिर जि.अस.टी लागू करने की बात हो।  मेरे जैसे कहीं लोग चाहते है की अलगाववादीयों को दी गयी सिक्योरिटी और सुविधाएं निकाल कर उन्…

Bharat's Cultural Pressure to Have A Baby - Noone Wants To Talk About It

Hi.


I have to take up this subject and write about it because I am seriously curious to know how many couples in my country really have kids because they really want to have one and how many of them have given up to the pressure or expectations that their parents, in-laws, other family members or friends or even co-workers put on them. I will not be surprised if more than 50% fail to handle the pressure and decide to have a first child. It does not stop there, after first child, expectations are to have a second child within 3-5 years after first child. 

I am not at all against having babies rather I love babies and I imagine I would have one ourselves one day but it is not difficult to understand that there are lot of problems in our country because we have been told to respect elders so much so that they do not allow people in their early or late 20s to decide when to do what. Most of the elders think they have managed to raise kids and they had kids in their 20s, the next generat…
