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

Where is Young India? Are there any newcomes in Bollywood anymore?

Had never really given it a thought that ways honestly, i just checked to see who are the young actors in bollywood and even google doesnt help me with that. Of the top 10 results i got 3 for actresses and rest all irrelevant (non described young). Th strong hold the existing stars have seems impossible to beat. Even with movies like prem ratan..., Happy New Year etc coming out, they are commercially successful and i have no idea why

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

Unfortunately we have already had complete Republican control and the Republicans have amply demonstrated that they are utterly incapable of governing. Not long ago, GWB had a Republican congress and senate. What did we get from it? Mostly out of control debt and a more intrusive government.

Tax cuts are great, but the idea is to "starve the beast". If you go out and borrow from the Chinese to make up for the shortfall, and more, you've made things worse and delayed the inevitable. The Republicans claim to be in favour of fiscal rectitude but in reality no amount of money is too much to spend against things they don't like. A wall on the Mexican border, for instance. Gov Walker, an early presidential contender, even said that a wall along the Canadian border would be a good idea.

Driverless cars are the new revolution or just a futuristic hope

In the not distant future all vehicles will be required to be driverless in order to remove error prone humans from behind the wheel so that road deaths will become as infrequent as death by shark attacks.
Already electronic stability control is compulsory in all new passenger vehicles sold in Australia and elsewhere. Such devices have been shown to reduce single occupant deaths by half and that is just the start. Collision avoidance, automatic braking, lane keeping, GPS speed control and other devices are available as options on expensive up-market models such as Audis. Before long these systems will become standard and when that happens governments will start to enforce their installation in all new vehicles while GPS speed controls will probably be retro-fitted to vehicles driven by anyone under 25 or who loses their licence for speeding. Of course road freight will eventually disappear since stability control is probably not practical for articulated trucks and anyway measures to reduce toxic emissions from diesel engines will restrict their use.

The media and politicians don't even care about the prisoners who die in jail as they are already considered not worth living. It is a very sad state to see people brutally ending their lives inside the jails while the real criminals (the masterminds and politicians) are roaming freely.

Are we on the brink of a constitutional crisis ?

Task of Judiciary is not to formulate policy but failure of good governance has forced judiciary to widen its limited role in democratic practices of the nation. It is not to be proud of that Supreme Court intervenes in policy decisions, it matter of shame for government of union and states that they don’t adhere to constitutional standards. Its shame for civilians who are responsible for electing lawmakers who had often mocked due process established by law.

International Seminar | Damming Crisis in Tibet: Threat to Water Security in Asia

Chinese dam construction and water diversion projects in Tibet no doubt have, and will continue to have, significant detrimental effects downstream. Opposition to dams built upstream, however, is not universal. Some countries, such as Thailand, have vested interests in China’s hydropower production. Thailand purchases 3000 megawatts of power generated by Chinese dams. Economic interaction between the countries through which a river flows complicates the issue of transboundary river negotiations and muddies the waters for future food and water security.

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.

Chinese cost advantages in manufacturing are rapidly disappearing wages are rising at double digit rates annually in the cities and China's available workforce shrank by 3 million last year, and will continue to shrink indefinitely due to demographics. Energy prices in China are already higher than in the US and its oil imports running at double-digit growth levels. The companies that prosper in the long-term will be those with the best record for innovation. There's no reason to believe that the rest of the world will be inferior to Chinese ones at these things, given their record as the source of almost all technological innovations in the modern

Like many Indian languages, first Tibetan grammars were in Sanskrit and the language was used extensively in texts. A typical Buddhist manuscript has Sanskrit text on top and Tibetan below. One of the Panchen Lamas is said to have recited the complete “Perfection of Wisdom Sutra in Eight Thousand Lines” (Prajnaparamita) in Sanskrit from memory. It must be said that though Sanskrit influenced Tibetan, Tibetan language doesn’t use full Sanskrit phrases in the way Javanese or Thai languages do.

Napoléon. He wasn't a "dictator", but quite a strong figure who deserves his place here.
While defending France against 6 coalitions of kings who didn't want to see France giving such bad ideas as liberty, social justice etc. to their people, he managed to give to his people and to the world :
Sciences, discoveries & inventions - Decipherment of hieroglyphic writing by French scientists during Napoléon's Egyptian expedition. - invention of the ambulance service by a doctor of Napoléon's army (Dominique-Jean Larrey). - invention of the submarine by American Robert Fulton commissioned by Napoléon. First launched in France in 1800. - Napoléon himself is given credit for discovering and proving Napoléon's theorem in mathematics.
Government & Law - the Napoléonic Code : the first successful codification of a civil legal system in Europe. It has formed the basis of the private law systems in France, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and their former colonies, thus becoming the most influencial legal system in the world. - the metric system : invented in 18th-century France, officially adopted in 1791, but only proclaimed as the only measure system in 1799. It is now the universal measurement system, which only the USA, Myanmar and Sierra Leone haven't adopted yet. - the tricolour French flag and the Marseillaise (national anthem) : symbol of the French Revolution, they were kept by Napoleon as the national flag, even during the Empire, which assured its survival to this day. -most of the institutions of the current French Republic, like Court of Auditors, Labour Courts, Légion d'Honneur (Legion of Honour, still nowadays the most important french official decoration, the country subdivision into régions (kind of "landers"), departments, cantons, highschools, university system and great colleges like the Ecole Polytechnique, and many other things...
Freedom & national cause - spread of the ideas of the Enlightenment throughout Europe and Latin America, including the concepts of Human Rights, equality of rights, constitution and citizenship. - part of Poland's national identity : Poland is the only country in the world to invoke Napoléon in its national anthem. Napoléon indeed contributed in the independence of Poland from Russia or Prussia. - the unification of Germany : Napoléon is credited with reorganizing what had been the Holy Roman Empire made up of more than 1,000 entities into a more streamlined network of 40 states providing the basis for the German Confederation and the future unification of Germany under the German Empire in 1871. - the Louisiana purchase by the USA : without Napoléon's decision to sell the French possessions making about 1/3 of the present-day USA, the US history would be very different. By this sale Napoléon more than doubled the size of USA, one of his rare ally, helped by France to gain its independence two decades earlier. - the European emancipation of the Jews : Napoléon played an important role by abolishing old laws in most of Europe restricting the Jews to ghettos, as well as the many laws that limited Jews' rights to property, worship, and careers. We could note that the Rothschild banking family of France was founded in 1812, under Napoléon's reign.
Arts - some of France's greatest neoclassical artists were sponsored by Napoléon, such as Jacques-Louis David or Ingres. - the Empire style (named after Napoleon' Empire) in architecture, furniture, painting, etc.
