EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN Looking on the condition of children living their parents in slums in metropolitan cities, or in the abodes of the poor or among the landless laborers in the rural areas one can guess the tragic fate of these buds that fade when they had to bloom. Most of the poor people in all castes and communities have a large number of children. It becomes rather obligatory for them to engage them in some remunerative work. In big cities and in smaller ones too one would find children between the age of four and twelve working in roadside restaurants and tea stalls. They hardly get rupee four of five a day-not sufficient even for their own meals. Many of them stay in the restaurant tenements during nights too and are sexually exploited. Children of the same age group work in match industry in Sivakasi, quarries in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, carpet industry in U.P, brassware industry in Moradabad. According to a UN study the number of such children in India was 113 million. They could not have the joys of childhood. Worse is the condition of the girl child. She has to start working in the household and the fields in the rural areas at the age...

ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION THROUGH DEFORESTATION There was Kudos for the conscientious people of Kerala when they initiated the programme of ‘Smrithivanam’ in the early nineties. They started planting trees in memory of the dead. It is a living graveyard helping the ecology to improve. Even an ordinary man knows that forests invite water laid clouds, provide timber, are a source of nitrogenous manure, preserve soil from erosion, suck the subterranean water and provide shade and safety to small plants. Forests have also been providing a number of fruits including pine apple, coconut and charauli. They have now come under regular plantation. It is because of the absence of trees in Rajasthan is more or less a desert area. Still people, contractors and even government have been denuding forests. The Chipko movement of Uttar Kashi and Almora and Apiko movement of Kanara in Karnataka have not stopped killing the benevolent creation of nature that saves environment. The denudation of hill forests in Doon Valley in UP, Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra and Mahendragiri in the South have brought havoc in these areas. The trees are felled for commercial mining and in the name of tourism. Vast areas in Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh have been brought under cultivation after...

ENTERING THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY With the fast changes taking place in almost every sphere in the world it has become difficult to guess how we enter the twenty first century. Still there are certain things about which one can be almost sure. Global financial resources have already been centralized and almost monopolized by World Bank and International Monetary Fund. They are the biggest lending authority. The other big force that has developed as a big capital market is the European Union. Japan that is an important member of G8 , the most developed nations , has also gained an enviable monetary status in the world.Sarve gunah Kanchanamashrayante i.e. all virtues lie in one who has a command over gold . The world is expected to enter the 21st century dominated by this new group of lending agencies. It may look strange that Alfred Nobel the inventor of dynamic and the one who owned the biggest ammunition industry left his fortune to award prize for peace. The world forces have become wise still. America would talk of Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT), but would supply arms and ammunitions to backward countries – to Pakistan to fight India.

ENTERING THE NEW MILLENNIUM The new millennium has opened new vistas for India vis -a – vis the big powers in the world. The year 2000 saw two big powers extending their hands of friendship anew. In the bipolar world i.e. before the fall of communism in Russia India was closer to the USSR. The country was rather left to the centre. We had copied a number of things from Russian Administration. Five year planning was one of them. Nationalizing a large number of basic industries, banks, Insurance sector and starting financial set ups like Unit Trust of India was all on the Russian pattern. Steel, Heavy Engineering Plants, Coal, Petroleum products all were at the mercy of the Central government. Postal services, telegraph, telephone, railways, nuclear plants and dams were already, managed by the government. Even the declaration of glasnost and perestroika by the USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986 and further dissolution of communism in Russia did not bring any changes in India at the time as the government was still run on Nehruvian pattern. India was rather committed to Russia and had alienated itself from the USA. For a number of years Russia had a control over the governance of Afghanistan. The forces against Russia were...
