Nature nourishes us we praise her for her ascetic value , but what if nature is killing us slowly. I call it: self-immolation. Gandhiji rightly pointed out the solution of a grave danger which was imminent then but few noticed. And today the great visionary leader might be laughing in his grave watching world leaders confused in climatic jargons at Paris Climate Conference.
Nature has endowed us with enough resources to live a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing life. But our greed is leading to the rapid extinction of these resources. If we keep abusing these resources at this rate, nothing will be left for our future generation. We must use these resources in a sustainable way so that they can be used by our generations to come. As Gandhi has said, “The world has enough for everyone 8767 s need, but not enough for everyone 8767 s greed. 8776
But I must compliment you for the fine language and flow of it. Sentences are short, simple and are pleasant to read. Just, you should have gone through some sources. But as it is written without referring to any sources, it is a good essay. 🙂
These illiterate women in the unorganised sector are totally exploited by their employers. Women working in factories, mining industries, building construction process, in dams, bridges and road repair or construction work are not only paid less but also made to work in unhealthy surroundings.
Though there is a vast economic gap between the developed and developing countries, there is no reason to believe that health indicators can be improved. Countries like Bangladesh and Bhutan has shown that HDI can be increased inspite of developing economy. Eliminating economic disparity between nations can be achieved by bringing about development in health indicators. As an old adage goes “Health is Wealth”.
Women suffer from some distinctive health problems from which men are free. Women have to undergo the distinctive biological process of pregnancy, or child-bearing, delivering, nursing, feeding, child-caring or rearing etc. These are their maternal functions. But the insistence on the family planning has posed many health hazards.
Modern nation-states being geographically large with huge populations were unsuitable for direct democracy. Democracy is now being exercised indirectly whereby people elect their representatives from amongst themselves who rule for a fixed time frame, in accordance with a written set of rules and procedures which are codified in the form of a constitution. Various institutions have been set-up among whom the work of the government is divided.
The polarization of votes following Babri Masjid and Ram Mandir issue propelled BJP to power in the center. The last bastion of Congress at the center was stormed, propelled by the communalism. It heralded a new era of coalition politics at the center political parties professing different political ideologies sat together and formed a government. National Conference, for instance, was a constituent of NDA regime. The co-operation and conflict between parties divided on communal-secular line is another paradox.
I m just about to run out and I ll try to follow up but as a history person (MA in Early Modern European History) there appear to be some slightly wrong assumptions regarding family financials and marriage. Well at least regarding what is now the UK, and France.
Social movement in other parts of the world has also changed the attitude of governments. The movement for women’s right in America, movement against apartheid, movement for voting rights of blacks in America, movement for voting rights of women is some shining examples in the developed world. These social movements have strengthened the democracy in their respective countries.
