Lets decriminalise drugs to end drug abuse:Global drug policy panel

That is the best idea. At least it's a step towards removing the hypocrisy of "cannabis is a soft drug cause it's natural" ummm nope! Cocaine and heroin are both "natural". In this day and age all 3 drugs are altered and aren't pure when they arrive in the end users blood stream. The next thing we hear is that coke and smack fry your brain and are highly addictive and weed isn't. Wow really? Tell that to my girlfriend who spent a month in detox and 2 years later still has cravings for this supposedly non addictive drug. Let's not forget the psychosis it cause along with a instances of various other mental disorders. My guess is that as our legislators start being born in the late 60s or early 70s and younger, you will see a shift at legalization of drugs this age group often

Every Nation is starting and rightly should care for their own first. Thats the reason behind Trump and Brexit

Globalization and economic integration are the terms that are ruling in the realms of economic discussions across the globe and its impact on the societies and polities around the world are discussed .

This phenomena have led to a large scale migration of people from the rural areas to the urban in search of opportunities and have lead the governments across the world to focus on urban development which have led to a huge rural-urban divide .

This divide have been exploited by the different political parties to their advantage by arousing communal and cultural passion as seen in the recent Brexit Vote by the people of Britain to leave the European Union to the economic crisis in Venezuela of its inability to manage social welfare due to the effects of Globalization in the form of crippling oil prices .

All these events points out to the inequality of the distribution of wealth between the rich , skilled , professional AND of the poor ,unskilled ,unprofessional ,which is rising at a rapid pace due to the flaws in the policy makers around the world .

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

Has Modi modeled for PayTM? If someone is inspired by PM''s leadership and thanks him publicly, is that modelling? He is forgetting that in Delhi assembly election, his own party had put posters with Modi''s face and a slogan of Modi for PM, Kejriwal for CM.

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

Poverty, broadly defined, indicates deprivation from means of life- Income, education, healthcare. And employment generation is one sustainable avenue to tackle the process, apart from welfare schemes. Both agriculture and urbanization have complementary role to play in tackling poverty alleviation. Agriculture employs near 50% of workforce and generates income for 70% of rural household. So sustained and high growth of agro-sector has high poverty alleviation potential, considering its employment structure.

Structural change in employment scenario is taking place recently, as the country embarks on high growth trajectory. Shift from low productivity to high productivity sectors is taking place, as is evident from decline in farm employment. Also rural areas are still way behind urban conclaves in terms of social infrastructure, amenities and quality of life.

implementation of Communal Award

The manner of this reform has remained an issue of debate in policy circles, especially between the centre and states, as labour is a concurrent list subject, and any amendment to existing law by states requires presidential assent. This often creates frictions regarding details as seen in Rajasthan and madhya pradesh attempts towards labour laws regulations.Another debate is whether to consolidate and universalise labour laws or let them be sector specific eg. Plantation workers, mine workers, cigar workers and so on.Then there is the complex issue of labour law reform in SEZs which are hardly regulated and this has sometimes led to individual violence against managers as seen in maruti suzuki's plant on outskirts of Gurgaon

Democracy is to be balmed for Trump's Success

Isnt it a clear proof of concept that we cannot give the power to the masses? That a selected few should decide the fate of a nation? In the past few decades, democracy has become seen as an impediment to those in power, where voters get in the way of the “correct” outcomes.

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

If concurrent elections in the assemblies and LS were to be a reality, its benefits bring with itself some challenges too, one of them being requirement of political diversity essential for addressing social diversity of India. In a vast country like India, voters of different regions have different concerns. Simultaneous elections might effect their voting pattern, pushing forward the possibility of chances of a single party to win in both thus pushing regional requirements to background.

How will the markets react if Trump wins the presidential elections?

When Trump mentioned debt repudiation, he was describing the federal government's own current policy. David Stockman in his new books demonstrates that if today you buy a thirty year US government bond at the current rate and inflation is two percent for the next thirty years, after thirty years you have lost forty five percent of the value of your bond. That's called debt repudiation.If Trump suggests essentially the same thing Obama's done for the last eight years and the president before that and the one before that and the one before that however, the leftists go berserk. That is what they are taught to do by the sheep dog media snapping at their heels and by the political scum they worship.

The Muslim Personal Law is supposed to protect Women from discriminatory customary laws, but is very ineffective. Why does religion decide come over Law?

There are four different schools of Islamic law, each of which interprets the writings in the Quran in different ways and consists of varying rules and regulations for the Islamic community world over. The four schools developed in four different centuries. Countries with Muslim population have each adopted their Islamic laws based upon one of these schools depending upon their specific situation. The British who were at this point in time governing India, were trying to ensure that Indians be ruled according to their own cultural norms. Since 1937 therefore, the Shariat Application Act mandates aspects of Muslim social life such as marriage, divorce, inheritance and family relations. The Act lays out that in matters of personal dispute the State shall not interfere.
The applicability of the Shariat Act has come under controversy in the past as well. There have been previous instances when the issue of protection of women’s rights as part of the broader fundamental rights came into conflict with religious rights. Most well known among these is the Shah Bano case. In 1985, 62-year-old Shah Bano, filed a lawsuit, seeking alimony from her former husband. The Supreme Court, in this case, had held up her right to alimony, but the judgment was vehemently opposed by the Islamic community who considered it to be going against the written rules in the Quran. The case triggered a controversy regarding the extent to which courts can interfere into religious laws. The Congress government which was then in power, passed the Muslim Women, which made it necessary for the husband to pay alimony to his wife, but only during the period of iddat, that is 90 days after divorce.

There Will Be No Peace in Syria if Assad is Isolated

To be able to settle the Syrian crisis, the major players in the region should establish a dialogue with President Assad. If Turkey, Iran, Russia, the US and the Syrian authorities insisted on the need to protect Syria's territorial integrity, they should unite their efforts at the negotiation table to be able to find an effective solution to the crisis

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.

Zinedine Zidane’s men suffered the disappointment of missing out on a top-flight record 17 consecutive wins when they were held level by Villarreal at the Bernabéu on Wednesday night and they twice let leads slip in Gran Canaria on Saturday.

A manager's role in football is over-hyped.

With Mourinho, Guardiola, Klopp, Conte and Wenger the Premier League has without a doubt become the most competitive and watchable league in the world. But when you see the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Dortmund during their games, the gulf in class is almost embarrassing. The Premier League teams are nowhere close to that level. With such teams being managed by far less experienced managers such as Luis Enrique, Zidane and Tuchel, one can't help but wonder how big really is the role of a manager? Maybe it's just having a good enough personality to act as an enabler between great players in a squad.

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.

British couldn't colonize China as they did with India and the USA. Was China mighty even in colonial era?

Colonizing India showed the British how expensive and difficult to conquer an existing and ancient civilization and culture. Instead of actively controlling and administering China it was just easier to carve it into a sphere of influence. The British would control the economics of a region but still leave the administration to the locals as long as it didn't interfere with British policy.

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

It is clear that the economic outperformance of some of these States is a function of their politics and policies over decades or the “maturation of democracy”, as Ms. Jayalalithaa put it. While it is tempting to attribute explanations for this outperformance, it is very difficult to prove any. At best, it can be attributed to a complex interplay of politics, leadership, policies, human capital, and some luck.

Dictatorship failed because of people who came to power not because it is flawed as a concept.

Usually when I hear about a dictator I think of someone that's power hungry and always ends up hurting the people in some way. Has there ever been a dictator that was somewhat nice or made really good decisions that benefited the people?
