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

EPFO is a good move and people show reluctance in almost every thing. But I am not suggesting to compel anybody to invest at gunpoint. India have to create a culture of investment rather than saving.We can learn something from AMerican in this department- There senior citizens are productive members of society- there money is invested in domestic as well as global market through various bonds.Even after global economic shocks- they are able to sustain themselves quite decently. On the other hand, EPFO do not cover all working population of India. and most of saving lying in low economic utility saving accounts or even at home or land.

And those who claim that Syria and Russia are the bad guys happen to be none other than the US itself, its principal antagonist on every field possible historically all the way up to the present, and this time supported by their Wahabi and Salafi GCC states. How strong of an argument is that background check of yours ? You have to be kidding here, adding insult to injury by claiming that occupied Iraqis essentially killed themselves. 120,000 Iraqis were confirmed killed during the year of the US invasion of Iraq alone by Bush's show & awe campaign then with the early occupation era. The insurgency was not even a force to be reckoned with by then. The rest of the de facto civil strife that occurred is directly at the hands of the occupiers that tore apart the Iraqi state fabric, infrastructure, institutions and army, and turned the country into an Al-Qaeda base. Don't kid yourself thinking that you can put the blame on anyone else just because every single recorded death was not directly attributable to US guns or missiles. And what about Fallujah and its hundreds of civ-cas ? through indiscriminate cluster artillery fire on top of depleted uranium munition air-strikes ? every NGO that went there afterwards and every UN-sponsored study demonstrated that the population then and up until know is still reeling from the direct effect of those abuses, birth defect, long-term illness and child mortality rate in general, just like Vietnam and its infamous Agent Orange. The US government is the last entity on Earth with the moral grounds to lecture anyone on the use of force against populated urban areas, period. Sometimes it is remain silent and refrain from bold posturing on matters where you happen to be second only to Nazi Germany in terms of horror, notably since the nuclear bombing of Japan, then the campaigns of Korea, Vietnam, not to mention Iraq itself.

India was never intolerant, the present day media has made it one now

We all know that Media strives on anything and everything that is spicy, if there is no real 'story' they create one.

Analysing the past events that have taken place they all have been overhyped by the media to actually create emotions and repercrutions

Of course it is not a fully conclusive body of study, and scientists today are still working on reaching a consensus about the exact extent of damage and the complex ways that the environment is reacting to it but in no way can it be alleged that all the facts pointing towards climate change are fabricated.


One must be careful to distinguish between climate change denial and a thought out priority list where climate change is important but not the most important consideration (arguably India and other developing countries fall in this category they do not deny it and rather take significant actions to do their part to combat it, yet they refuse to just follow the directives of the West in prioritising environmental action over their own developmental priorities)

India has always boasted about its cultural diversity, but looking at our surroundings can we actually be sure about the concept of "Unity in Diversity"?

We wanted to make Hindi the national language because of the fear of the creation of many more Pakistans.
But If you take the position of we Indians during the early 1930s, we were OK with the creation of states on the basis of language. (Karachi session I am talking about). I differ on the point when you say that Diversity is neutral at best. I think that USA is a diverse country and holds the position of world's most powerful country.

The numerous factors that made the IITs excellent are being whittled away by creating more and more IITs

Increasing the number of educational institutions is never harmful for a developing country like India. But the whole process of expansion of brand IIT has to be done the right way. Infrastructure and faculty should be up to the mark before running the institute, govt. should not be in a hurry to just increase the number. Top level faculty should be recruited from the country as well as abroad with exceptional remuneration and there is a lot of Indian diaspora who is willing to return to India if there is a scope for good R&D, India should utilize such scholars As we can see the trend of a lot of engineering students in India moving away from engineering careers to management and elsewhere, Government may concentrate on improving other spheres of education as well. Industrial sector does not contribute to more than 20% of the GDP, so technically India does not need so many engineers. Nevertheless, IITs are reputed institutes. There is no harm in increasing the number and maintaining the same quality at the new setups. If 18 such colleges are producing the kind of gems produced by the top 5 IITs, imagine the number of young intellectuals India would be making every year.

We shouldn't have very high hopes with Pogba, reason : Ravel Morrison and Terry Cooke

The situation with Morrison and Pogba, shows how football has moved on and how Utd didnt move with it. Many at Utd still believed the draw of the club and the disciplinary powers of Sir Alex was enough to keep young players at the club, these 2 amongst others didnt see that, they had other people telling them Utd were holding them back or in the case of Morrison that he didnt have to work hard. Morrison it seems still believes that the world owes him a living.
