100 Children and their parents vow to voice against child violence; also pledge to send’em school

By on Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Human Right Monitoring committee held a Programme on  International Children Rights Day in Lucknow on Monday afternoon this week. On this occasion, a march was organised with the children who are the slum dwellers in Lucknow. The placards in the hands were displaying the juveniles discrimination.
Anshuman Singh, coordinator, said, “ The laws are here -- despite it, these children are the victim of violence.” He has said that they are neither safe in home, nor safe away from home. he added, “we, instead to know their feelings, try to repress their rights.”
Discrimination, violence, victimization, sexual exploitation and assault, children smuggling, child labouring, child marriage -- all criminal activities are affecting their pious future which is condemnable and a point of concern.
Madhuri Chauhan said on children protection, “Elders are aware of their rights. They know their social,economic, commercial rights. A little ripples in their rights they cannot tolerate and raise their voice against it; while the children rights are broken in routine.
Vineeta Tharu said, “ The parents claim for the child care; but, as they do the care, they seem that they are providing all the needful rights, which does not exist in practice."
She said, "The children are not aware of their rights in the constitution which have been conferred them. This needs a campaign under work mission to be carried out by the government. The guardians and the parents are awared about the children rights on 'International Children Rights Day'."

The practice of learning during the children's development plays important role. They make mistake which is a normal activity, but the punishment is a wrong step. They become unaware of the mistake; they must be upheld to do any work work with the better ways, but the violence against the children are against the rights of children, said Amit Ambedkar.

They deeply investigated it and then they found in the record the growths of earthquakes were during the period when the earth’s rotatory motion had got slow speed. They found that this slow in speed was recorded every 25-30 years after, and recorded earthquake exactly after this event.

The last slow speed of earth in the past had been recorded and the numbers of quake came in the ending or 5th year. The year 2017 is the 4th year of this retardation and this prediction has been assumed that the year 2018th may increase the numbers in earthquake.

levels gap in salaries of both -- lower government workers and workers in private sector -- make preference of government job

By on Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Lucknow University organised four days symposium on Neo-liberalism, consumerism and culture where Sonalde Desai, University of Marryland, USA, addressed the conference in Lucknow last week. She said in her analysis over the rising demand for reservation.
The past decade has seen rising demands for reservation from a variety of relatively prosperous agricultural communities; namely, Jats, Marathas, Patels, and Gujjars. These demands and underlying frustration have emerged in a decade when the economic narrative tends to focus on high rates of growth and declining poverty.
How do we reconcile these two competing trends? Using data from the National Sample Surveys between 1983 and 2012 we find in this paper which shows that, before the adoption of neoliberal policies, Indian economy was dominated by large and medium farmers who were both numerous and able to earn a reasonable standard of living.
 However, the past decades have faced a decline in their economic power, which has turned once prosperous farmers into subsistence farmers.
 Simultaneously, there has been substantial increase in the incomes of white collar salaried workers and professionals, while job opportunities for white collar work has experienced only a modest growth..

Data from India Human Development Survey show that many agriculture base families find almost all avenues of upward mobility blocked.
Successive pay commissions have created a rising gap between the salaries of lower level government workers and the workers in the private sector – the levels gap of both side have made the preference of government job highly desirable.
However, downsizing of government employment makes this an almost impossible dream. Coveted modern occupations in private sector demand skills and credentials that are beyond the reach of most rural students.
Although educational attainment in rural India has grown, a vast proportion of rural students are attending the institutions that fail to equip them for the modern world.
 Not surprisingly, these blocked mobility aspirations come together into a demand for reservations in government jobs and institutions of higher learning resulting in political mobilization of agricultural communities.

Lucknow university organised four days symposium on Neo-liberalism, consumerism and culture

By on Monday, November 13, 2017
Indian Sociology Council on 4th day in its address disseminated on the subject ‘Neo-liberalism, consumerism and culture’. Prof. Ravi Srivastva, JNU, prof. Sudha Par and Prof. Badri Narain, GB Pant Social Science Institute Allahabad, analyzed in reference to the consumption growth of Neo-liberalism, the deprived caste, the middle class awareness and the politics of backward and Dalits in Uttar Pradesh last two decade.
Prof. Ravi Srivastava analyzed the rate of production, the rate of employment and the rate of consumption, based on caste, religion, area in country and in Uttar Pradesh under Neo-liberal arrangement.

According to the professor, there were industrial production centre in the middle and the eastern UP during the 8th decade, but these industrial zones downsized after the induction of Neo-liberalism. These production centre have shifted to the adjoin areas of national capital fall in UP or in national capital.
The gap between the national production rate and the state production rate widened. The chance of employments in UP after the Neo-liberalism has declined. The educated and non-educated youths are escaping towards other states.
He told that the 20% of rural houses have increased in the circumference of poverty. If let it be seen in the wake of consumption, there is 20% decline in consumption in UP in comparison of national consumption rate in last two decade. There is a big economic disparity in comparison of villages to the city.
Prof Ravi assumes that the consumption level of the scheduled caste and the minorities have improved, which has caused the rise of middle class among them; but the disparity has grown among the groups of Scheduled caste and minorities.
Prof. Sudha Par analyzed the changing politics of Dalits and told that the regional political parties got the power on rising awareness of social justice among the other backward caste and the Dalits during the decade of 90’s; but the most backward and most-Dalit castes could not have been benefitted of Neo-liberal market and society, so they were attracted towards the inclusive agenda of the BJP and the RSS.
These castes which unite against a particular Dalit and a particular other backward race are intending to be more powerful as politically, educationally and economically. The most-Dalit and the most- backward castes because of ‘Maha-Hindu’ identity economic desires had got the BJP's majority reached in last assembly and parliamentary election.
The political unity arose on the inclusive Hindu agenda and rising of middle class among Jats on grassroots level in western UP. The political polarization occurred in the result of strong leadership in eastern UP.

Prof Badri Narain in his analysis told that the marginal-Dalits, Dahariya, Kamar, Kabutari and Sarwan – all joined the BJP in the hope of economic gain after the political ignoring.
According to Prof Badri Narayan, the traditional knowledge of castes is now become a cultural burden.
The 40 marginal Dalit castes of 55 Dalit castes have reached to marginal extent as politically and economically because of market and consumerism.
He assumes that these tribal castes are now the herbs’ gathering labourers for the Ayurvedic Company. The traditional knowledge of herbs used is going to vanish.
According to Prof Narayan, the fashion of ethnic Devi-Devtas in the most-Dalits castes and the most backward castes unlike former anti-religious thinking has now in high practice, which has resulted the intimacy towards the BJP.

According to media, Fallon, announcing his resignation, has tendered his letter to the Prime Minister, Theresa May.
He has narrated in this letter, “Many allegations against the MPs have been surfaced in the past few days. A few of them are about my past behavior. Many of them are wrong, but I accept that once I didn’t do behavior according my dignity. My behavior was below those standards which we have been implemented over our respected army and its leadership. Therefore I’m going to resign.”
It is noticeable that Fallon had accepted that he had touched his hand over Julia Hartley Brewer’s knee with the malevolent intent. He had apologized for it. However Brewer, herself, has surprised over Fallon’s resignation. It seems me that some more allegations are about to be come out. I have doubt that it’s a result of just my knee touch. And if it is true, it is mere a craziness. I think Fallon was better Defense Minister. I’m sad that the forward member of cabinet has been said good-bye in this way.
The sexual exploitation cases against the MPs and the ministers in Britain are constantly in limelight. Journalist Brewer has confirmed this report. After these reports, the British Prime Minister has emphasised to decide the code and conduct rules of MPs. he accepted Fallon’s resignation and replied: a thanks on ‘high ideology for general code’.
