Draupadi: A classic tale of women oppression like many others in our mythological books!

The oppression was never there in our Hindu Mythology, look at our goddesses: Laxmi (wealth), Saraswati (Knowledge), Durga (Power), Kali (Anger). They started with the Mughals.

Read this: The Roots of Female oppression In Indian Culture

"The male specie needs to be domesticated, because it is the male who has the energy and power to cause disruption. The male is domesticated through a mother, then a Guru, then a Wife. There is always a leader who shows the right path to a male.

The female is always guarded – first through a father, then through a Husband and then trough a son. The female is always guarded from a male because it is the male who will cause disturbance."

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

Say for nursery and secondary school, should kids have locker facilities in schools to reduce the amount of weight they carry around? If they have these locker obviously



They could ditch all the food and bottled drinks. Schools should not be handing out textbooks when children have such a wealth of information on-line. Many schools put learning packages and homework on-line so that children can log on, do their work and the teacher can check it with no paper involved. Parents should ensure that bags chosen are designed to spread the load instead of causing strain on one shoulder. Unfortunately, they allow the child to choose the fashionable brand, not the most practical.

Can the recent privatisation in Indian Defence help us stop the massive Defence Scams?

Sahil Khanna had posted

In my point of view, there is a less corruption in private sector than government sector. But privatisation is not the complete solution or panacea for corruption. We all



Privatisation is easier said than done in this It will lead to far more R&D activities getting completed within a short period than is being achieved at present. Sharing of knowledge and experience as well as infrastructure would add to the assimilation of the specialised domain expertise and lead to accelerated growth of the A&D sector. It is no secret that private sector companies do not invest in R&D due to the risks involved. Design & Engineering are well within the capabilities of our private sector companies, be they large or small. All they need is a bit of initial hand holding and support, particularly with funding for a large gestation period of at least 5 to 6 years. With such support, Indian industries are capable of meeting just about any challenge thrown at them by either the Armed Services.

Am I dreaming or is this another of those over ambitious projects from NASA and Stephen Hawking?

Send the robots. Unlike us, they can be adapted to deep space. In the time it has taken us to get as far and the moon, our robots have already reached the fringes of our solar system. At this point, there is never going to be a live human that goes anywhere that hasn’t first been thoroughly explored by our robots.

Cashless payment is the next best disruption now. However how should it be regulated?

Nandan Nilkeni termed the recent demonetization move as “a defining point in India making the transition into going cashless”. This is particularly true,considering the large number of unbanked people making the transition into the digital age. Thus there arises a need for regulation. This would go a long way in ensuring secure payment platform for citizens. Prevent monopolisation of the cashless market and thus increase the competition.

Steps for smooth regulation are legal framework which clearly lays down the rights and obligations of all the stakeholders involved. Ensure the new platforms are adhering to the Bankruptcy and insolvency laws. Provide a level playing ground for entrepreneurs to increase the confidence in the financial system. Self assessment certifications from companies disclosing technical risks which might translate into systematic risks in the future. Setting up a customer protection guarantee fund to ensure settlements are done without knocking on the doors of the courts

Why is it that Schools curriculum does not contain aptitude and critical thinking?

Critical thinking does not mean the management theory but the fundamentals of reasoning and logical thinking that teaches students how to construct and deconstruct arguments and evaluate the soundness and validity of the given premises and the resulting conclusions. Knowing how to think critically can be likened to intellectual self-defense and is an essential skill for anyone who wants to make sense of the increasingly unhinged media landscape of Orwellian propaganda and blatant agenda pushing that has reduced the fourth estate to acting as disseminators of distortions, half-truths and outright lies. Citizens need to be able to cut through the bullshit and assess the validity of the messages they are bombarded with if our badly wounded democracies are to survive

With Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa as the new Pak Army Chief, can the Indo-Pak relations improve?

The ties between India and Pakistan have deteriorated after the Uri attack in which 19 Indian soldiers were killed. India followed it up with surgical strikes in terror camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). Almost on daily basis Pakistan is violating ceasefire across LoC, which the Indian forces are also giving proper reply. With Qamar Javed Bajwa as the new chief can there be any improvements in Indo-Pak ties?
