Bokoharam Tale of Horror

That night was unusual, the ethereal attribute of the night engulfed Chibok, drowning it’s remnants into an abyss of sorrow and despair. At the stroke of mid-night Chibok, a small town in Borno State lost 300 “protectors of culture” into the hands of the Islamist militant group, Bokoharam. The sectarian violence perpetuated by Bokoharam now seems imperishable, having no scope of reversal. Since 2002 Nigeria has been the victim to huge scale mass killing, abduction, kidnapping at the hands of the Islamist militant group Bokoharam- etymologically “No Western Education”. In…

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…

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…

Soft Leadership and Youth for Peace and Prosperity

"We must be silent before we can listen. We must listen before we can learn. We must learn before we can prepare. We must prepare before we can serve. We must serve before we can lead." William Arthur Ward. Leadership is a widely talked about subject internationally. It gives lots of energy, enthusiasm and inspiration to many readers. However, it is highly challenging to practice it. Anybody can talk about leadership from outside but to get into leadership role and walk the talk is easier said than done. It is…

Volunteer to Make a Difference

“One person can make a difference. In fact, it's not only possible for one person to make a difference, it's essential that one person makes a difference.

An Honor to be a Woman in India

“The man, who was born to a woman and doesn’t respect a woman, has no right to live in this world.” – Prof. M.S.Rao. Dear leaders, It is an honor to share some thoughts on women who constitute approximately half of the Indian population. You are the force behind India! You are the power of India! You are the real leaders of this great country! Several revolutions are successful with your active support. You have transformed the Indian society amazingly by working from behind scenes. Because you think what is…

Conflict Beyond Their Years

How more could be done to prevent children in armed forces? Children remain children until they reach the age of 18 and because of spending an insufficient amount of years on the planet they are unable to make maturely responsible decisions, especially the one’s which may involve risk or potentially harming themselves and others. This is the core of the argument to why under 18-year-olds, who are essentially still children, should not be allowed to be recruited into establishments where they will be inevitably forced to make such decisions and…

UNICEF and MDG’s

Are UNICEF and the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) on target for providing a better future for children? Assuming the post of United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) sixth Executive Director on 1 May 2010, Mr. Anthony Lake ‘reassuringly’ pledged on his first day in office to help the world’s children “inherit a better tomorrow”. Words however are always easier than actions, promises easier than proceedings, and one cannot help but wonder, somewhat dubiously, exactly how Mr. Lake and UNICEF intend to accomplish such an audacious but imperative pledge. Being an…
