Modern schooling is one of the greatest crimes against humanity

Though the topic is very vague and vast, since modern can mean anything, but my take is education is one thing that needs a lot of modernisation!

BTechs and MBAs in UP line up for sweepers’ jobs. Is it time we move towards creative sectors in education?

This is what would happen if you keep jobs under reservation. Non deserving would get into those jobs which could otherwise have been allocated to those who have better qualification. This is bloody non sense situation created by stupid reservation policy. Scrap it for once and all.We are not living in stone age.

Modi is hinting at withdrawing India's support from Indus water treaty, a much needed step!

Shanu Sharma had posted

We must direct all our waters to the farmers. Pakistan Government must be responsible to supply water to their farmers! As it is they have not done any dams or embankment

This treaty has been too much generous and it has not served its purpose. It is against the interest of states like Jammu and Kashmir where the water of Indus, Jhelum and chenab can only be utilised for non-consumptive purposes. India gets less than 20% of the water under the treaty where as Pakistan gets 80% of the water. With the growing population and increasing interstate water dispute (between Punjab and Haryana) Indus treaty makes it difficult for India to use the water. Pakistan insists on rights without responsibilities. In fact many Indian projects like Kishanganga, Baglihar etc are delayed due to Pakistan.

The last 2 times the Republican party had total/major control were 1928 and 2001, and we got 2 depressions/ recessions. Whats next?

While I think this answer makes sense in a logical progression, it doesn't really describe why having all branches be Republican is the cause, in fact, you go from saying there is only some slight power appoints could have over Fed policy to the conclusion that it was the fact that they had all branches of the government - that's a huge leap.

While I would agree that the government was at least partially responsible for it, there's really the question of whether we knew how to fix it at the time. Keynes spent the 30s analyzing the Great Depression, and Friedman was way later. There was very little data at the time to deal with crises of the sort (Marxian crisis theory wasn't well developed beyond his, relatively vague description of it). Basically there's no good reason to think that, had the Democrats been in charge, they would have done any different.

Is the NDTV saga a blatant assault on media ? Why is there no hue and cry then ?

Why are aren't the passionate protectors of our democracy creating a huge ruckus on this ? Isn't it too blatant ?


Or does one side of the debate think even this can be justified for those who are broadly anti-national ?

What can make UN talk about Tibet, like balochistan and Kashmir

U.N. might never talk about Tibet since its a Chinese issue. Its similar to why UN never talks about any country/ issue where USA is involved.

Baloch and Kashmir are talked about since India and Pakistan are not big enough to threaten anyone and thus can be asked/expected to follow whats been told. However when it comes to US/China/Russia/Britain/ and even France there can never be any any talks/ actions that can take place from the United Nations
