Which is more important? Skills or Degrees?

We live in a world where few sectors ask for skills (the recent startup boom) and few which ONLY care about your degree (private sector). While starting off, which aspect should be focussed on, developing skills or focussing on getting the right degree?

Russia manipulated the outcome of the US election is something which has been making the headlines recently in mainstream media and it's generally being accepted as fact. The problem is, not one single shred of evidence or proof has been provided. It's fake news presented by the mainstream media, perpetuated by the likes of this Simon Jenkins character. He doesn't have any shame about doing it either

Making voting compulsory might solve a lot of problems for us

Tanya had posted

Before making the voting a compulsion, we definitely need to analyse the reason for which we are not getting the citizens out of their houses to decide the most important


Chakradhar Kumar Politically incorrect, factually correct

Crores of money is wasted during every election and yet the benefit out of the system of election is hardly reached. And when a party comes to power it is found to be not one of the most liked parties of the country. People openly criticize the government when things go wrong but isn’t it us who brought them to power; either by our votes or by not casting votes. They come to power by only 20 to 30 percent of votes simply because a larger population of the country doesn’t vote at all. If you want change to happen in the system, you have to contribute your part to the mission that could bring change and voting is one such contribution. Making elections a compulsory act for every individual that owns a voter ID will ensure maximum number of turnouts and hence alert the corrupt leader of their falling down. There were times when people’s right to vote was being fought for in a democracy. And now when we have got the right, we are lazy enough to utilize it. Not using the power to cast vote is like wasting the sacrifices that our freedom fighters made making India a free and democratic nation.

I just came to my notice that Qatar had an ongoing modern day slavery till December 13! Shouldn't UN intervene in such matters?

Qatar just abolished "kafala". Under “kafala”, all foreign workers working in Qatar require a local sponsor, in the form of an individual or company, and need their permission to switch jobs or leave the country.

The system was compared to modern-day slavery and left vulnerable workers with little protection and open to abuse, critics said.

The School Bag gets heavier, are we planting the seeds to a stressful society?

We should actually stop pampering our kids so much, i remember when i was in schools we went through much rougher conditions and that made us who we are. We need to make them go through real life, the roads will not be this smooth eventually so why not make sure the get a feel of the real life?

Chakradhar Kumar Politically incorrect, factually correct

Mandatory retirement age is discriminatory by its very nature. It ignores the realities of an older employee being clearly able to continue productivity and enforces stereotypes like old people get sick or old people are crazy or old people can't handle change. None of those are true on the whole and it's harmful to implement policies based on prejudices like that. In addition, it isn't like keeping the older employees means that younger employees can't get jobs. That's a ridiculous fallacy; there isn't a limited number of jobs out there. More productive employees means more productivity. More productivity is better for businesses, the economy, and the workers.

I feel Trump and Brexit happened over a strategy followed by Indian politician vigorously, focus on countryside votes


Almost two-thirds of US rural and small-town voters chose Trump, while a similar proportion in the cities chose Hillary Clinton. In the English countryside, 55% voted for Brexit, while cities as varied as Bristol, Glasgow, Cardiff, Liverpool and London voted even more decisively for remain. The stark and growing political division of the US and the UK by population density has been one of the most striking, if under-reported, revelations of the great 2016 electoral reckoning.

Drastic changes are taking place in the Pakistan Military, what do you think will be their next move?

India-Pak is too big an issue to be sorted by these Military personals. Think about it, how will Pakistani react if one day they come to know that no damage done lets shake hands and be happy. The cult in both the countries is such that most of the citizens of the respective countries also hate each other to be happy about being together!

IMO this law is very very useful in country like ours wher a population of more 65 % bound to live their life on an expenses of less than rs 26/- per day. Almost all who have the properties in our country know that the properties r changing hands in the legal consideration of 5 to 10% of actual sales price of the properties specially in un authorized colonies ,sub urban cities, and farm land and Industrial areas specially in so called SSI sector. This situation should be changed. Properties should be allowed to be sold online only through exchange like NSE,BSE,MCX in the manner as the shares, commodities are sold

Is Dr B. R. Ambedkar's legacy just limited to him being the founder of reservations in India?

Very often then not Dr B. R. Ambedkar is considered responsible for the state of reservations in India, not knowing how the true concept of reservation was moulded by the politicians to suit their own purposes.
Who was Dr. Ambedkar? What was his credibility and why is he worshiped in so many places in India?

Both Modi and Trump look fascist to me, what are you views?


There is nothing wrong with being a Fascist. Fascism is some ways quite a visionary ideology, but is also quite traditionalist, built around the principles of nationalism, authoritarianism, and mass action. As a totalitarian ideology, it embraces the State as an organic and all-encompassing entity, and demands the mass mobilization of the populace to actively participate in the running of their State.

Fascism means an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.

Is AIADMK really incentivising people to attempt self-immolation and commit suicide? Why are we letting this happen?

The AIADMK party on Wednesday revealed that as many as 77 people have died of grief and shock over the late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa's illness and death. Releasing the list of dead persons, the party announced compensation of ₹3 lakh to their families as relief. AIADMK also announced ₹50,000 compensation for any party worker who had attempted self-immolation.

Reward of Rs. 10 lakh to first cashless village, but how can there be a cashless village without Governments Infrastructure?

Waver or at least a substantial reduction in transaction charges; scrapping service tax on credit card transactions; demonitisation of high value currency notes effectively making it impossible to carry large amounts of cash; creating the requisite digital and financial infrastructure; etc., are some of the steps that can usher in the era of plastic money and curb effectively the scourge of black money. Afterall it is incorrect for banks to say that they have to levy transaction charges because every transaction costs them money, simply because every ATM transaction also costs money and the banks have very well discovered themselves that ATM transaction in the end prove much more economical than over the counter transactions. Over time it will be proved that the waver of all charges and levies on noncash transactions whether using plastic money or the various digital platforms will prove cost effective and taxman friendly; may be, in the long run making it possible for the government to lower tax rates also.
