Child labour to combat child marriage?

As the eldest child, I have always wondered how my life would have been with an elder brother or sister. I would have preferred a sister. I don’t need anyone to teach me how to be naughty, and definitely don’t want a big brother stopping me from doing what I want to do. Trust me, if that imaginary brother was anything like I am, there would be constant fight. An elder sister on the other hand would have been great. I won’t have to worry about her stopping me from doing anything, but I can depend on some sound advice and comfort whenever I need it. But, it could be the other way too. But that is hypothetical. It is strange for me to think about such things, but I happened to think of someone, and that triggered these thoughts. The person I thought about was the closest I had …

To Each His Own

“Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.” –Albert Einstein. We always believe everyone and everything in the whole universe follows the same rule as each of us. And we believe that the person sitting next to us think like us. Why else would the Bible say God created man in his own image? Because almost all of us are incapable of imagining beyond us. For the same reason we judge others based on our own view of ourselves. We also always imagine aliens having hands and feet, with their brain in their heads which would always be on top of the torso. Now isn’t it possible that the alien may not have a head and instead of a brain, it might have its some other part doing the job, or it may even have each of its …

Extinct – Humans

Human race is doomed. This assumption has been made based on two facts. 1. Humans marry. 2. Humans invent. We call this the height of human evolution. That is the problem with it. Since we have evolved as much as we can as a species, now all we can do is grow. As much as I would like to have the powers of X-Men, I am afraid that the best (or the worst) we can hope for now, is less hair. The future Humans will not fly or read each others mind; they will have less and less hair and the one with the least amount of hair will be considered the most eligible. Marriage is major difference between man and any other species when it comes to social groups. Evolution depends on male and female choosing the best available. It is a formula that has worked since the Big Bang and we are the living proof. The choice …

Lookout, the future is changing

I am becoming inactive again, not because I did not want to write or not because I had nothing to write. In fact during the past month there were quite a few things that impressed me that I wanted to write so much about it. Unfortunately, the past month was one of the most interesting as well as one of the busiest month I have had in a long time. One of the most important events in my life last month was the realization that we are at a crossroad that is going to determine our long-term future, in a big way. I am sure each of our action determines what is going to happen in the future, but some events make much more difference than the others do. In India, the Prime Minister is trying to persuade the Communist Party to support him in the nuclear deal with the …

Two Girls Cross LOC to Escape Forced Marriage

I am late to sleep and I got to go to work in 6 hours. But when I was about to sleep I remembered this news item I read earlier today at work. How would two Muslim girls from Pakistan feel when men, that too of the Indian Army, surround them? They ran away from home to escape from a forced marriage, but they might end up in prison for treason or might be forced to marry. What would they be thinking while awaiting their fate? When they ran away, they could have gone of to anywhere but they chose to cross the LOC to reach India, hoping for help. They must have heard good things, and now they must be scared, and might probably wish they were dead, because after they are turned over to the Pakistani Army, even if they are freed, their lives would effectively be over. …

Quit India Notice given to foreigners

India is has been sitting on the wall as far as the Tibet issue is concerned. While it could not anger the international government and its own voters, it has been reluctant to do anything that would cause a strain on Indo-China relationship. Strange that China does not feel the same way. China does not feel shy when it wants to show its strength or rebuke India and the world community. It is sad to see that successive Indian government going weaker and weaker in the knees. While India has tried it best to avoid making a statement supporting Tibet, it has made sure that the residents in India do not anger the Chinese too much. But China claims India is not doing enough. Recent development shows India is not concerned about the international opinion. But it is certainly concerned about the opinion of voters. The government has allowed peaceful …
