Something is better than nothing is not true for every aspect, and thus hiring retired teachers in schools might not be that great a step

Older people should be forced to retire at a certain age because the world is steadily changed and their knowledge becomes outdated. With new and upcoming technology the older people fall behind by not knowing how to work these things. Their knowledge is of the past, the world is changed and so should the teachers be. How can teachers be expected to teach students is their knowledge is based off of what things were like 35 years ago?

Cashless payment is the next best disruption now. However how should it be regulated?

Shanu Sharma had posted

While this is a good sign for the economy, there is a need for regulation in several areas because of threats associated with online data privacy, bankruptcy of e-wallets


Rahul Manikaran Trying to make this world a better place to l

Payment wallets must comply with standard cyber security norms like 128 bit encryption, data storage norms and customer privacy norms. Recent breach of data of 3.2 million debit cards is an eye opener. With the rise of digital payments, several hackers are launching creepy mobile apps trying to steal the data of users. Such apps must be regulated and app stores should comply with these norms.

No significant monetary benefit for the common man is seen as the rich have found ways to circumvent the new legislation by using fake id proofs from their employees’ record section. Telecom companies, utility companies are hand in glove with agents who are supplying fake id proofs to convert black money into white at the rate of several lakhs per hour. And now they have 50 days for it. No wonder banks have run out of cash even though huge stacks of new currency were being supplied to banks without telling them what they were being used for.Unless, the criminal justice system is fixed and the source of corruption which generates black income is plugged. No real improvements will happen.

India will have over 372 million citizens above the age of 60 by 2050, yet there is no way to cater for their proper care or stop the abuse they go through

Abuse of elders in India is more rampant than we are willing to admit. Factors like loneliness, health issues and dependency combine to make ageing a terrifying time for seniors in India. But perhaps the biggest culprit in this scenario is the word retirement itself. Too long have the elderly have reconciled to a life sans self-respect. Even a concerted thought towards reversing this is probably worth much more than all the empty speeches and promises

Is 35 the new 25? Or was it always this way

I see a lot of my colleagues and friends from college who are madly running after money car houses and confuse these things with their passion. But 25 seems to be way to early for all this, these thoughts should exist at probably 35. So is 25 the new 35 with a lot of added stress?

Modi is hinting at withdrawing India's support from Indus water treaty, a much needed step!

Ashna Kaur had posted

This treaty allows India to use limited amounts of water from Indus, Jhelum and Chenab and full use of water from Sutlej, Beas and Ravi for agriculture, power generation


Rahul Manikaran Trying to make this world a better place to l

The treaty is also called unjust by many sections who opine that it deprives Jammu and Kashmir of its rivers. China, which is a source of indus and Sutlej is not a party to the agreement bringing in elements of uncertainty.

Most importantly, Pakistan's disruptive attitude on india's legitimate right such as kishanganga dam on neelam river etc and it's display irresponsibility have been major irritants of the treaty. In the light of recent bilateral tensions, India should at the outset not violate the treaty as it being the lower riparian state in many other cases should not set a dangerous precedent. It should instead explore other alternatives such as diplomacy and dialogue to resolve them.

What can be done to avoid train accidents? Lets make sure this accident is the last one

Accidents can be helped, however with the attitude we currently have nothing can be done. If an accident happens we create a huge hue and cry around it but as soon as the news get old no one cares one bit about it. This attitude needs to be changed! What can be done to avoid train accidents?

What is the present scenario of the grains that is being wasted every year in India and the causes behind that?

Chakradhar Kumar had posted

India has made rapid progress in food production and achieved near self-sufficiency in the food grain production. In fact the attainment of self-sufficiency in food grain


Rahul Manikaran Trying to make this world a better place to l

The food wastage starts right from the agricultural field where crops are grown. With over half of the farmers still rain-dependent, vagaries of monsoon further add to farmer distress. Unseasonal rainfall that happened early this year has destroyed standing crops that were to be harvested soon. Those which could bare the atmospheric onslaught hardly have desired characteristics. Also, they are susceptible to pests and rodents in warehouses. Opportunity costs like release of methane and the groundwater used during paddy cultivation have adverse environmental impact.


Next, inadequate infrastructure along the supply chain consumes most of the farm produce. Lack of cold storage facilities particularly affects foods like fruits and vegetables that have limited shelf lives. Roughly, in India a third of fruit, vegetable production rots annually. This wastage is aggravated by storage issues. FCI godowns that are used to stock foodgrains fall awfully short of production levels. Govt's lackadaisical approach to food management is compounded by leakages and pilferage that reduce the amount of subsidized food reaching poor via PDS.

Nehrus contributions have somehow been ignored due to the overwhelming critical opinions

The current approach requires more pragmatism than ideology and hence his stance of non alignment might have hurt India's interests in the presence of the growing clout of China. India would not have been so dominant in international arena as Nehru being a strong believer in disarmament would have not pressed for the need of nuclear weapon building. Nehru was a efficient diplomat and hence might have been successful in getting India a permanent seat in UN security council.

This is not a long term solution

Agreed this will give black money a reboot. The money in circulation will no longer be black, but with 2000 rs notes and no change in Indian laws what guarantees the fact that we soon will get caught up in the same loop

What went wrong with Odisha

Odisha, despite being endowed with abundant natural resources and a stable government is at the bottom rungs when compared to many other states.Low per capita income , low industrialisation and urbanisation shows that its potential is hugely untapped. Recent initiative like 'Make in Odisha conclave' are welcome measures. Also , making Bhuvaneshwar a smart city will somewhat accelerate development process.

However , to alleviate poverty in a faster and effective manner , the focus must be on agriculture , since >60% of workforce are still dependent on agriculture.Productivity per acre is significantly low .

Is justdial on a irreversible slide to the bottom ?

Do you also feel that Justdials future unless they do something drastic might end up like Nokia?

Nokia too at a point in time was the biggest player in mobiles (just like Justdial in listings) but now there are a lot of other players who are doing exactly what Just dial was but being more specific (Zomato has ratings, Urban Clap lets you order people). Unless a huge innovation comes up it will be an inevitable end.
