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

While in many western countries with an increasing proportion of elders and a decline in birth rate (like UK), the idea of doing away with the retirement age makes complete sense, but in a country like India, where unemployment is rampant and the youth itself is not getting enough opportunities to land in good jobs, this idea may be a bit far fetched. But this issue definitely demands more attention, given the twin issues of a spurting expenditure in pensions and a declining standard of living of elders. Maybe instead of completely doing away with a retirement age, the government can mull the idea of marginally increasing it to 62-65 from the current 60, which is very low according to international standards.

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"?

INDIA is diversified with various religions and their cultures & languages. It gave birth to new religions like Jainisim, Budhisim & Sikhisim out of Hinduism and even welcomed Islam & Christianity though they were from alien land. Rulers of India from medieval to modern era were benefited using religion politics, the same even continued post Independence to woo innocents for power. Ignorance, low empowerment, Illiteracy were observed as the causes for flourishing of divide and rule or caste based politics. India & pakistan were divided based on more or less religions.

The US elections is not the only elections that should be on your radar. UN might and should have a women Secretary General

The United Nations (UN) Security Council is continuing its consideration of candidates for the next UN Secretary-General, with the next “straw poll” due to take place on August 5th. Backed by public debates and online campaigns, this selection process for the Secretary-General has been the most transparent and accessible yet – driven in part by tireless efforts from civil society. But the decision to appoint essentially rests with the Security Council’s five permanent members in what has been, since 1946, a remarkably secretive selection procedure, one which has given us three Europeans, two Africans, two Asians and one Latin American – all men – in 70 years.

With social media roaring about Indians qualifying/participating in Olympics, it is because of lack of will and cash that India wins so few Olympic medals

With Public Racism and Xenophobia, similarities with the buildup to the Second World War are real

Things are happening with machine-gun rapidity: Brexit, the Turkish coup, massacres in France, the siege of Aleppo, the nomination of Donald Trump. From the United States to France to post-Brexit Britain, the high levels of public racism and xenophobia, reflected now in the outpourings of politicians with double-digit poll ratings, have got people asking: Is it a rerun of the 1930s?
