Begging has always remained a big problem for Indian society. In past, numbers of people and NGOs have tried their best to solve this problem of begging in India, however, most of these initiatives have failed very badly. From this survey one thing comes out clearly in front of us that begging has today become more serious problem and requires some serious action. However, most of the time, we see more talks on begging problem than anything productive done to solve this problem. To some extent, it looks that we people have accepted to live with this problem. There are many examples available where beggars have earned huge fortunes with begging. Some of the facts like entry of graduate and post graduate beggars are really alarming signs and show the increasing reach of begging in India.

Around 15K deaths because of potholes in last five years

Some data are very shocking and unbelievable. One similar data is about around 15K deaths in India because of potholes. These numbers are so alarming that even the Supreme Court of India raised a question on this issue. It is bad for any country to have so bad roads that they start killing more numbers of people than the actual numbers of people killed by any kind of war in country. This clearly states that we don't need wars to kill people because our roads are already doing this job. The condition of Indian roads has always remained a matter of debate. Despite so many efforts, the condition of Indian roads is not good.

Even in big cities, it is very common to find potholes and bad roads then who cares about the small cities and villages. The main reason behind such problems is that there is no system to make concerned authorities accountable. The officials involved in road construction don't do their jobs properly and high corruption is another reason which fuels such probl…

Thoughts on Women's Day

Today, we are celebrating International women day to show our tribute to the contributions made by women in this world. In recent times, women around the world have seen a lot of improvement in their living standards, especially in countries like India and this improvement is significant. Therefore, this day is also celebrated in India with full respect to women, who have made significant contributions in business, politics, career, general life etc.

A lot of people in India celebrate this day by sending flowers, cards or SMS to their mothers, sisters, wives or other female friends. However, still, there is a lot more required to be done to provide more help to women of India because even today, millions of women in India are not able to use all of their basic rights; and are living under the influence of others. Second big issue which is required to be addressed is the thinking of a large number of people about women who still believe that women are either second-class citizens or a b…

Is it right to use Movies to score Politics? #AccidentalPrimeMinister

India is a country of controversies and we keep on seeing newer and newer controversies emerging daily. Some controversies die fast while others continue for years. The recent controversy is about the Anupam Kher's latest movie "Accidental Prime Minister" in which he is playing the role of formal Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. 

This controversy emerged with the release of the trailer of movie Accidental Prime Minister. The Congress party blames that this movie is made to spoil the image of Gandhi family while Anupam Kher claims that his movie is based on the book written by Baru Sanjaya whose role is played by Akshay Khanna in the movie. 

Mostly in India, we see politics on the single line that "I am right and you are wrong". The focus of all political parties is more on proving others wrong than proving themselves right. They want your votes not because they are right but because others are wrong. In such kind of politics, we hardly see right things pro…
