A long way to go...

While women emancipation is taking place continuously, there isn't enough awareness on how normal women (all classes of the society) suffer when it comes to sacrificing education & career for marriage (and family). Things are improving - there are government aids for girl children to prevent this, but government help isn't just enough. Parents need to alerted of the big threat that lack of such freedom for these women poses to society in the long run (this apathy happens specially with the the eldest daughter in the family).

Apologies!

My sincere apologies for not having updated the blog in a while. An interesting project at my workplace has kept me hooooooked and it is still ongoing. I am enjoying it, thank you but I assure you that I will be back here with more posters at the end of this month. Until then, thanks for staying connected! Do check back soon. Peace.

"End of ze world" is an abstract concept. So what exactly is going to wipe out our race? Aliens? Bio hazards? Chuck Norris? Not facebook, for sure. But care-free attitude certainly would. So, mind-ittt!

This is a conversation from way back in 2007. What is your take on what Bush said with regards to the "broken egg - cracked egg analogy" (watch the video provided below)? How different is Obama's current policy in comparison to Bush's ludicrous policy, on this particular matter, anyway?

Ciudad Juárez was declared as "the most violent zone in the world outside of declared war zones."

“In December of 2006, Mexico’s new President Felipe Calderón declared war on the drug cartels, reversing earlier government passiveness. Since then, the government has made some gains, but at a heavy price – gun battles, assassinations, kidnappings, fights between rival cartels, and reprisals have resulted in over 9,500 deaths since December 2006 – over 5,300 killed last year alone. President Barack Obama recently announced extra agents were being deployed to the border and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton heads to Mexico today to pursue a broad diplomatic agenda – overshadowed now by spiraling drug violence and fears of greater cross-border spillover. Officials on both sides of the border are committed to stopping the violence, and stemming the flow of drugs heading north and guns and cash heading south.”

"The Big Blunder"

The lottery-cum-rotation policy of the bill is highly dangerous for the democracy in this country.

3 Reasons why the bill is dangerous:

1) Firstly: anybody who is successful in standing for the elections under this bill (winner or loser) cannot stand again for another 15 years! Rotation policy fail.

2) Constituencies are rotated every election! Rotation of reserved constituencies in every election would only reduce the incentive for an MP to work for his constituency as he may be ineligible to seek re-election from that constituency.

3) Election of female “proxy” (wife or daughter) by the male counterparts is not far from happening!

[Credits for above reasons: Global Voices Online]

This whole pressured mess of creating a bill could have been avoided and the bill could have been passed much earlier if only the drafters had followed a system alternative to the lottery-cum-rotation system.

"The Annoying Sena"

Oh yes, the Sena have got the control of the "knob". And we are equivalent to the Earth (that includes the government, the people, the media).
