PM Modi advertising for Paytm is a way to show a new direction for payments in India, why is it shameful?

his is the same person who stood up against corruption and wanted to curb black money in his strike alongwith Anna Hazare and he made party to fight corruption but now he is retweeting the Mata banrjee comments.

When will Army get the OROP it deserves?

Implementation of OROP is non empowering in nature. It is imp for govt to implement what it has promised, it must rather start empowering these retiree into an asset. Not denying their service to the nation, fiscal burden which will be borne by the entire population need to be considered as well. The recent unfortunate death in delhi of an ex-serivce men is a kind of turning a noble agitation into an extortion. He had worked in the service only for 6-7yrs. Policy says that pension only after 14yrs. But he committed suicide. I am not here to comment on what and who is right.
But my only argument with this is that OROP implementation won't end any woes of them. We need to empower these retirees through various training. let them undergo some sort of education as well which would further allow them to earn their livelihood. Also we can have a pool recruitment cell too. And those not coming under OROP i.e. pre 14yrs retirement can also be given oppurtunity to take part in in this. And by this companies can demand for specific knowledge too. And fullfilling this will not only be less burden for govt financially, but also a positive for the economy as a productive non dependent labor force.

around 2011 China had already become the world’s second highest investor in R&D. Government research funding has been growing at an annual rate of more than 20 percent. At the end of 2012, for example, 7.28 billion yuan was spent on promoting life and medical sciences, nearly 10 times the 2004 level. Even more troubling (for the United States), in 2011, 21 percent of the applications were supported, and for young scientists, the application success rate was 24 percent, both of which were higher than the U.S. level. It was predicted that if the U.S. federal government R&D spending continues to languish, China may overtake the U.S. to be the global leader in R&D spending by 2023.

Urbanisation or Agriculture, what do you feel should be the target focus?

Both urbanization and agriculture are not the new concepts to human civilization and been there from the inception of very first human colony. But what creeps in with the growing population and scarce resources in the lack of technology is Poverty.
It is a general believe post industrialization that an urban lifestyle and an urban habitation and job can lead to decrease in Poverty. Though I differ on this view, any person who migrate from the village to an urban center in a view to earn and to remit back the money to its flaunt in the village found himself trapped in the burgeoning economy of the city and all his hard earned money spent there in the city only. Though there are the studies which shows that urbanization reduce the poverty in the villages but what is more impactful for the same job is the development if agricultural activities. Development of agriculture in the village keeps intact the social connection of a villager which is lost in the city for such a new comer, in the village the person is not in the competition of consumerism since he is more connected to the social ties and so can save more.

Supreme Court vs BCCI.

Warning is generally seen as something negative. But examine the warning issued by the Supreme Court to the BCCI and one will understand that its not always negative. The Supreme Court has issued warning to the BCCI to comply with the recommendations of Lodha Committee report after BCCI's top brass has displayed unwillingness to comply through its actions in the form of disbursing Rs. 400 crore to the State associations despite an embargo issued by the Lodha panel and its secretary asked the panel to send him emails personally.

This warning, if becomes a reality may affect the ongoing season of cricket but will go a long way in establishing Transparency and accountability in the game and will make future board members of cricket and other games to bring in the highest level of transparency and accountability in their functioning.

A constant discussion has happened over simultaneous elections for State Assemblies and Parliament. What is stopping it from happening? Implementation or Intention

Elections in India have become a continuous process and political parties with stakes in various states are constantly preparing for one election or the other. This affects policymaking and governance as the government is trapped in short-term thinking. While the idea has been a topic of discussion for some time, he has done well to revive the debate. The Law Commission in its report on electoral reforms in 1999, for instance, had suggested simultaneous Lok Sabha and state assembly elections to improve governance and stability.

Is Marriage as beneficial for women as for men?

Landmark research by University College London, the London School of Economics and The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found that single women do not suffer the same negative health effects as unmarried men.

In fact, middle aged women who had never married had virtually the same chance of developing metabolic syndrome – a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity - as married women.

(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/03/14/marriage-is-more-beneficial-for-men-than-women-study-shows/)


I guess that is so true for the typical arranged marriages in Indo-Pak region. Women are happy, working, studying, doing what they want to and living their lives until....one day the guy's family sends in "RISHTA" and all her independence is perished. She will have to ask her husband-to-be for everything she has to do, and not only that she has to be answerable to mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister-in-law etc etc.

Driverless cars are the new revolution or just a futuristic hope

The clear messages from these developments are, first, that this technology will become mainstream much faster than people expected, and second, that the US government wants it to happen as soon as possible. (Nearly 100 people die every day on US roads.) Transport planning is about to get really interesting again. And we might even be able to reclaim our streets from all those empty, idle parked cars.

It is not a question of right and wrong. It is a question of purpose. In fact in the given context the choice is not between right and wrong but between what is ideal and what is necessary. If ideal behavior is not serving the purpose than we must open our all options including military response. However, such extreme step may have some immediate strategic and political consequences. But more than that, as a proven peaceful and progressive country we are expected to behave ideally and ethically and this is the reason why most of the times we choose ideal response over necessary one.

Exploitation of resources in Tibet will affect India badly in the future. Nationalist Indians should fight for Tibet to protect their own interest.

Supporting Tibet is in India's interest. The Chinese have been building dams over rivers that flow down to India; openly supporting Pakistan and opposing India in international forums.

By bringing Tibet to limelight like Balochistan, India can play a masterstroke.

Will a world without work be utopia or hell?

What is the point of our existence? Endless production, menial jobs, struggling to pay the loans? I would like to work, yes but I want the time and freedom to explore personal projects, to learn new skills, instruments, crafts, languages. To engage with community projects, to do charity work, to explore friendships and relationships. We need to drastically reconsider the purpose of our society. We laud "hard working families" as if this is the very pinnacle of achievement, but in doing so negate fore mostly the infertile, the single, the non-monogamous, queer, disabled, those who chose not to have children countless others. It privileges a lifetime of servitude, of obedience to a trickle down economic model that has had upwards of 30 years to be validated and has been proved time and time again to be a failed economic model, a myth that our overlords still plead our subservience to.

Please raise your hand if you are with the Doval doctrine in Kashmir

Kashmir has 3 types of people & each set needs a different kind of solution. One set is Pakistani by heart, second doesn't love either India/Pak and thinks Kashmir is a separate nation which is occupied by both India & Pak & hence deserves freedom, third Indian by heart. While I support current strategy for set 1, I oppose it for set 2. For second type people we need to have continuous talks, think them as our own, listen to their grievances, make them educated and see that they get integrated to indian society at large by doing jobs in different parts of India. And for set 3, well no one cared for them. They are biggest sufferers. I call upon govt to immediately dance article 370, let every indian have the right to own property in Jammu & Kashmir.

There is nothing stopping the increase in economic disparity between the Indian States

Economic disparity among Indian states, is evidenced in the vastly different rates of per capita income, health standards, literacy levels prevailing among different states. The development of any state is largely dependent on the will of the political elite of that region. Pro-reform politicans, who could rise above party/personal interests and managed to create a favourable climate for investment, put their states on the path of development. Also the remote locations of North-east, hilly terrain of Uttarakhand, Himachal make setting up of revenu/employment generating industries difficult.
