Quite a good majority of urban educated women says marriage is a a hinderance to their freedom and progression. Women are born free, but still their freedom is shackled under the guise of marriage, through out their life. Eventhough the shackles of marriage were broken by the hard-core feminists long ago, it is only today majority women around the world are realizing the importance of physical freedom to them unrestrained by the institution of marriage. Today they either prefers to be single or to have only live in relationships with a view not to loose their natural freedom. Increasing education... (more)
OUR SOCIETY: Employment and Marriage for middle-class Men has become a very difficult task now a days particularly for those holding conventional Arts or Social Science degrees. Employment and marriages prospects are very bleak for Conventional Degree holders like B.A/MA., B.Com/M.com, B.Sc./M.Sc and unless one gets a government job, life becomes miserable to do employment in Private Companies, because salaries even for petty clerical jobs will not be given on time. Moreover private companies give first preference for women for employment in their Offices rather than men even for petty jobs... (more)
A couple of lines in Broowaha writer Randy Mitchell’s “Image is not everything” article went on like this: “My husband has never made enough money for me to be happy, I wish he’d change jobs or do something else”… the words were spoken in a disappointing almost in angry tone…. perhaps his lack of money and earning power had caused her to become bitter and resentful. Further the words “I wonder how long my marriage would last if I were to loose my job?” impressed me equally. That means he is suspecting that if he is to lose his job his wife will leave him. So the relationships have become that... (more)
Social dynamics are rampant and today’s social values are obsolete for tomorrow, as modern generation minds with pre-occupied business motives viewing every aspect of life from business point including the matrimonial and family issues. How much ‘cash’ you are getting monthly or per annum is the fundamental question of any bride’s father to groom, instead of asking what is your “character”. Back ground character is the least bothered aspects now a days in matrimonial aspects. And subsequently in post-marital lives characters incompatibility or short-temperments automatically leads to Divorce.... (more)
...are required to look into and discuss on the social issues “as it is”, based on the facts. Hypocracy should not come in the way to conceal the facts on real life-styles what we are practicing that is far away from what we speak and boast about our great orthodox culture and traditions. Social change is visible to our eyes very clearly in all walks of our life. But, what is being projected to the outside world over our grate traditions and culture is quite different from our real domestic life-styles and social change that has undergone in our urban societies and also in quite a good...

Over the years, the Indian government has enacted anti-feticide laws and stipulations to prevent decreasing sex ratio though these efforts do not seem as rigorous. In addition, it is important to reform attitudes, which is a long drawn process of social change. Much action needs to be uprooted at individual and institutional level (private & public), including the corporate sector. Indian youth whose voices have the power to plead should be encouraged in societal change. As ideologues, the youth can educate and empower besides initiating... (more)
...becomes a vantage point to keep them in a state of denial like a sitting duck for the perpetrators. Also, the fact that some of these countries are an ongoing war zone, and lack a central government system, or are partially ruled by the militia, further extinct the possibilities for social change and investment in women empowerment. Moreover, the influence of theocratic law in some of these countries makes economic reforms preposterous. In addition, incessant absolute poverty and high levels of corruption are some other depriving factors for change. For instance, in India, where... (more)
Famous ethicist John Rawls believed that in order to promote fairness and equality, coming out of the ‘veil of ignorance’ is imperative. He idealized a society where there was no social status or labeling associated to individuals and everyone could be entitled to same social rights. Perhaps John Rawls envisioned a social model based on morality, ethicality, and virtues. His ideology seems similar to that of Dr. Patch Adams who intends to design a society based on ‘care systems’. Dr Adams philosophy of holistic care integrates cause with compassion and is a consciousness raising effort of... (more)
...children are heirs of love and contentment. They are gladiolas of innocence, whose ingenuity and ability would otherwise be lost to streets in search of rags and contaminated food. Feeding a child reinforces their intellect, explores hidden talents, nurtures and empowers life and augurs social change. A continued drive against hunger boosts energy in each child to unnerve malnutrition that causes atrophy of human potential. An endeavor of such magnitude stirs the soul to reflect on Akshay Patra’s immense capacity to procreate in their humanitarian crusade.
