WHY NOT EMPLOYMENT FOR ALL

IT'S DICHOTOMY MR PRIME MINISTER
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 09:21 GMT-0000
There has been much ado about unemployment in this country but nobody seems to be serious enough to tackle this problem. “Employment for All” became election plank in many elections, but never became part of our planning except in the Eighth Five Year Plan, and was abandoned midway by the then Finance Minister Dr Manmohan Singh who is now our Prime Minister.

SIKKIM AFTER SINO-INDIAN PACT

IMPLICATIONS OF OPENING TRADE THROUGH NATHU LA
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 09:14 GMT-0000
The 'flower of the mountains' Sikkim has traditionally been considered strategically important for India as it lies astride the shortest route from India to Tibet. This mountain state is bounded on west by Nepal, on north by Tibet, on east by Bhutan and on south by an Indian state West Bengal. Therefore, implications of opening trade through Nathu La pass are obvious.

THE BURDEN OF RELIEF PACKAGE FOR FARMERS

CMP MISUNDERSTOOD, FAULTY DIAGNOSIS OF THE DISEASE
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 09:06 GMT-0000
The case in point is the hasty announcement of the Relief Package announced for farmers. It may not only prove an extra burden for the government facing financial crunch, but also for the farmers, the very persons the relief is meant for.

INSULATING THE INTELLIGENCE AND INVESTIGATION

POLITICAL INTERFERENCE UNDERMINING THEIR PRESTIGE
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 09:01 GMT-0000
Misuse of intelligence and investigation wings of the State is not a new thing. But, except the occasional outcry against the Executive, who is seriously interested in reforming them? Nobody in the legislature, it seems. Otherwise, how could it be possible that the recommendations of the various commissions and committees have been accumulating dust over them and the politician of the ruling parties have been misusing them for years?

THE REFORM: THE CRUEL AND THE HUMANE

UNDERSTANDING AN ANALOGY OF THE SACRIFICIAL GOAT
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 08:54 GMT-0000
Reform in the true sense of the word is all right, but 'the Reform' we have been pursuing for the last decade does not augur well with the common man. People of this country held the BJP-led NDA government guilty of cruelty to common man and voted it out as a mode of punishment. Taking cue from this, our new Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is going on reiterating that his Congress-led UPA government would continue with 'the Reform' with 'human face'.

EQUAL RIGHTS ON ANCESTRAL PROPERTY A WELCOME MOVE

THE NEED IS TO REMOVE FEAR OF LITIGATIONS AND WOMEN'S BURDENS
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 08:49 GMT-0000
We have been witness to the behaviour of our legislators on Women's Bill which is still pending mainly due to their unwillingness to put the Bill to vote. Only a handful of legislators have been all along opposing it, and majority of the legislators are outwardly in its support, but inwardly do not want to get the Bill passed through voting. They want consensus on this regard while the other Bills have been passed despite more strong and vociferous opposition through the instrument of voting.

PRICES MAY RISE BUT NOT INFLATION AND PRICE INDICES

AN EFFECTIVE POLITICAL TOOL AGAINST COMMON MAN
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 08:44 GMT-0000
It's a dirty trick of the government that made the intelligentsia in its favour on the price front despite the common man's grief who are caught between dwindling income and steep price rise.

IMITATING SPIDERS WON'T DO

PANCHAYATI RAJ INSTITUTIONS NEED MORE
Author: System Administrator - Published 11-11-2007 08:34 GMT-0000
The people outside government have always been hopeless, however, with such type of national building exercise. Therefore, there is a longstanding demand that the national building work should start from the bottom, say from the villages and the Panchayats.
