Do You Know- The US prison industry is one of the most profitable industries in the US?

Yesterday, while watching a show on the national geographic channel, I came to know that the US prison industry is among the top most profitable industries in the US. There are more than 2 million prisoners in US jails, which is the highest number in the world much higher than China, the most populous country of the world. America has only 5% world population and it accounts for the nearly 25% prisoners in the world.

As per the estimates, this industry is likely to grow in the future by making a billions of dollars of profit. Therefore, there are many investors who want to invest in the US prison industry. In just ten years of time, the number of private prisons in US has increased from 5 to 100 which shows the growth in this sector.

These prisons make profits by forcing inmates to work at a fraction of the cost for the industries working in the jail premises. These prisoners make many items from army helmets, number plates, paint brushes, home appliances, speakers, furniture and many more.

The success of any business depends on the availability of cheap labor and prisons are helping industry with cheap labor. Most of the prisoners have no other option but to work for very less wages, if they say no to work, then they are given the hard punishments.

It is shocking to know that one of the most advance and richest country of the world is also one of the highest producers of prisoners in the world. Whereas countries like Sweeden are closing their prisons because of falling numbers of crimes and on the other side, crime rate is sharply increasing in the US, and further some people are making good money on this increase in prisoners in jails.

Some thinkers have written that US prison industry is anti-human and it reminds about the German Nazi concentration camps. A country like US which pretends to be liberal and human friendly needs a look at its social system and why such a huge social crisis exists in that country.

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…

Book Review-“Living with the Himalayan Masters”

India holds a great history behind it which is full of many cultures, traditions, religions and wisdom, however, today the major problem with most of the youth of India is that it is forgetting the importance of ancient India cultures. One of the major attractions of our culture is life lived by great mystics and masters in Himalayas. From many centuries, this tradition is very much prevalent in India according to which people go to Himalayas for becoming one with higher conscious.

These great masters and mystics follow the path of renunciation (leaving comforts and pains of world both mentally and physically). We all must have heard number of stories associated with these great masters, however, due to lack of information and knowledge we mostly find it hard to know the real truth. For an ordinary person, it is very difficult to exactly know or understand the life of our saints and masters. Most of the time, these people are believed as mad, psychics, frauds because we do not know or …

Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using our email accounts and avoid responding or accepting number of reward or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become the victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter.

Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic.
