Social Media: Build a Better World

Social Media: Build a Better World. “Social media are a catalyst for the advancement of everyone's rights. It's where we're reminded that we're all human and all equal. It's where people can find and fight for a cause, global or local, popular or specialized, even when there are hundreds of miles between them.” - Queen Rania of Jordan. Social media is catching up aggressively and its significance cannot be underestimated internationally. Individuals and organizations started to depend on this powerful media. Social media played a crucial role during American elections…

USA and ISIS: What Next?

As the U.S counter-strikes garners greater momentum, ISIS has begun training its militants to fly war planes, considered a major leap forward in combating the U.S forces. The London based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported ISIS to be in possession of three warplanes in Northern Syria. More than over a month since Obama went vocal with his aim to "degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS", the ground situations has worsened, with every passing day drudging even deeper into oblivion. At the base of it, the problem lies not in the…

Alarming Indiscipline in Indian Education

“Educationists should build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership among students and become their role model.” - Abdul Kalam Currently there is a growing indiscipline in Indian educational institutions and it is time we addressed this issue earnestly to shell out quality students who can grow as good citizens. Students are more demanding in terms of knowledge, freedom and facilities. They are becoming rights-oriented rather than duty-oriented without realizing the fact that duties and rights are two sides of the same coin. This is…

Negligence Thwarts Tree Planting Efforts in Malawi

While tree planting and forest conservation has been at the centre of the Forestry Department of Malawi since 1976, deforestation seem to have gained more ground within the same period. These noble efforts have been frustrated by the increased bare grounds in the country side, especially on the periphery of the growing towns and cities. Tree planting has been the main driver to rehabilitate the destroyed forest resource in the country. Tree planting and forest conservation efforts have been focused at the village level where communities are at the centre…

People Centered Forest Policy for Malawi

“My forest, my life” echoes as the theme for the National Forestry Season for 2013/14 in a Malawi, a country reputed to have the highest deforestation rate and land degradation on the African continent. Illegal charcoal production, wanton cutting down of trees and encroachment in protected forests have destroyed the picture of the once lush miombo forests of the country. Amid all the increased forest destruction that goes on, almost unabated, the government still recognizes the important contribution of forests to the national economy. According to the Economic Valuation of…

Inspire Students to Make a Difference

"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire". William Butler Yeats. Inspiring students is more challenging than imparting knowledge. Any educator can read various books, do research, create their own content, develop own teaching tools and techniques to share knowledge with their students. But what is more important and challenging is inspiring students. When a ship is sailing smoothly anybody can be at the helm to sail it smoothly to the shore. It requires mere expertise to sail the ship. But when the ship…

Leadership Skills for Indian Students

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader”. John Quincy Adams. There are mushrooming leadership development programs for students in the developed countries to impart leadership skills and abilities in students. Some prestigious international universities have customized training programs including Harvard Business School offering degrees in the domain of leadership. However, there are no such initiatives and courses in India despite being the second largest populated country in the world with the highest number of young population. In fact,…

Revolutionize Indian Education System

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires". William Arthur Ward. The current observation is that most of the educators don’t add any value to students. On the other hand, it is the students who add value to educators by working very hard for exams to pass out with scores and grades from Indian educational institutions. Even in some of the prestigious educational institutions like IITs and IIMs in India, it is the students who slog hard to achieve the scores rather…

Human Mind: Drunken Monkey or Mighty Creator

Mind, until governed by soul wisdom, is very complex and tricky. In fact, Swami Vivekananda used to say that a mind that does not learn to meditate is like a drunken monkey bitten by a scorpion and possessed by a devil’s soul. Indeed, governing the mind is a hard job. We shall see here how to discipline, befriend and optimize the mind. Most people confuse between the mind and the brain; they are not the same. The brain is an organ, like any other organ, it has a definite location…

UNFCCC and Cancun Climate Change Summit

How can the UN avoid a repeat of the disastrous Copenhagen summit in Mexico? In the wake of the unsuccessful climate change conference held in Copenhagen last year, another summit is to be held in Cancun, Mexico this December. Intent on not ‘getting it wrong’ a second time, a series of meetings are to take place in the run up to Cancun, to discuss, deliberate and streamline negotiations. “Governments have a responsibility this year to take the next essential step in the battle against climate change.” These albeit ‘underestimated’ words…

Poverty in Morocco

As the unevenness in wealth grows in Morocco, the age of excess needs to be replaced by an age of equality. If I was given a Dirham every time a Moroccan person picked up my two young sons and kissed them lovingly on the cheek during our recent five-day visit to Marrakesh, I would probably have made enough money to buy myself a "meat tagine" at one of the more up-market restaurants in the city. Touching and kissing fair-haired children, I am told by particularly enthusiastic and friendly local, is…

Slavery in Brazil

Slavery, A Modern-Age Slur on a Country Thriving in Prosperity. Reports of Brazil as a nation thriving with a strong economy growing healthily, cause both envy and intrigue to hang over the many countries, who far from managing to pull themselves out of recession, are plunging further into economic breakdown. Although this rosy picture of Brazil, which has been colorfully filling our television screens on recent news bulletins, is far from representative of the whole picture. In reality, slums slur the cities borders and slavery maims the rural areas. Why…
