Essay about THE SOONER WE GET RID OF PUBLIC SECTOR, THE BETTER IT IS FOR INDIAN ECONOMY

English_Master May 25, 2016 No Comments
THE SOONER WE GET RID OF PUBLIC SECTOR, THE BETTER IT IS FOR INDIAN ECONOMY “Wherever government has a presence you will find industry associated with it, directly or downstream, either dead or dying,” quipped BPL Telecom Chairman Rajeev Chandrashekar. Quite true but a sad reflection of the state of Public Sector in the economy. The Public Sector has plummeted from being at the “commanding heights of economy” to being a “nobody’s sector”. It is no wonder that PEs (Public Enterprises’ are derisively referred to as NPEs—Non Performing Entities. Jawaharlal Nehru, father of Economic Planning adopted the Mixed Economy model, which would enable us to set up a socialist pattern of society. Under this system strong Public Sector was created which was expected to play a leading role in economic development of the country, build up an infrastructural base, generate employment, remove regional imbalance and produce goods and services at subsidized rates. However, the tragedy was that Nehru’s ministers were more politicians than economists making a virtue out of necessity. Thus, Indian economy was politicized accordingly since independence and Public Sector was created not under any economic theory or developmental necessity but with political objective. Hence “our brand of socialism” only resulted in transfer of wealth from honest rich...

Essay Topics about THE PROBLEM OF UNEMPLOYMENT

English_Master May 25, 2016 No Comments
THE PROBLEM OF UNEMPLOYMENT The problem of the choice of a suitable profession is closely linked with the problem of unemployment. It is mainly the result of our defective system of education, which lay too much emphasis on literary training. But it is also due to the faulty planning on the part of Government, which cannot create suitable job opportunities for all. To some extent unemployment in India is also the result of the craze among the educated youth for ‘white collar jobs’. Lack of education and vocational guidance facilities, are some of the other factors, which contribute to the problem of unemployment. There is a keen struggle for survival going on in the world. Young men and women after finishing their education, find it very difficult to get a suitable employment for them. They are baffled as to which career they should choose. Whatever profession they choose they have to face stiff competition. Due to the spread of education, educated young men and women like to adopt the profession of a teacher. They may possess, aptitude as well as training for the profession, yet very few of them can be absorbed in schools and colleges. The lot of those who are without training is worse. They try their...

Essay Writing about SUPERSTITIONS

English_Master May 25, 2016 No Comments
SUPERSTITIONS  “I am not superstitious”, anybody who is asked “Are you superstitious?” will retort sharply. But he will surely be lying. The louder the denial, the more is his superstition confirmed. If you try to ‘make him understand”, that he is superstitious, then he will be even more annoyed, if you try to convince him that the sentiment of ‘superstition’ is universal and that no one including himself is immune to this most common, all prevailing epidemic’ and even if he says, ‘alright—it may be so’ remember that the admission will be superficial. A person convince against this will, is of the same opinion still. No one is not a superstitious. It is no necessary to go through or quote from this voluminous ‘works’ on psychology and mythology, or any logics to prove the truth of the statement made above. Just go to a temple, see for yourself queues of great lengths, heads of queues meeting their tails, coiling like snakes, the people standing there generally, calmly, patiently (sometimes they even grow violent) present a spectacle of great victory, great variety in dress, fashion (s) and fads, and styles… A definite proof of the fact is India is a country of ‘Unity and diversity’”. There is a great variety...

Essay about SOUL POWER

English_Master May 25, 2016 No Comments
SOUL POWER The greatest men of the world have always stood alone. Take the great prophets, Zoraster, Buddha, Jesus, Mohammad—they all stood alone. They had living faith in themselves and their God, and, believing as they did that God was on their side, they never felt lonely. We may recall the occasion when pursued by numerous enemies. Abu Bakr, who was accompanying the Prophet in his flight, trembled to think of their fate and said; “Look at the number of enemies that is overtaking us. What can we do against these heavy odds?” Without a moment’s reflection, the prophet rebuked his faithful companion by saying; ‘No Abu Bakr, we are three, for God is with us.’ Well-meaning efforts never go in vain, and man’s success lies only in such an effort. The result is in His hands. Strength of numbers is the delight of the timid. The valiant of spirit glory is fighting alone. Be you one or many, this valour is the only true valour. The value of the spirit cannot be achieved without sacrifice, determination, faith and humility. The history of great deeds is the history of men who had the courage to stand alone against the world. Rana Pratap, deserted by all, carried on alone a...

Essay Topics about SHOULD SMOKING BANNED IN PUBLIC PLACES?

English_Master May 25, 2016 No Comments
SHOULD SMOKING BANNED IN PUBLIC PLACES? Many surveys, studies and scientific researchers have proved that smoking is injurious to health. Smoke is unhealthy and suffocating. It pollutes the environment. There are two types of smokers — active and passive. The person who smokes is active and others who are near to him and inhale the smoke are passive smokers. Both are equally affected by the ill effects of smoking. Smokers and nonsmokers meet at many places like offices, buses, hotels, etc. So, considering the bad effects of smoking on individuals’ health, environment as well as individual rights, it should be banned in public places. A person who wants to smoke can do so by keeping himself in isolation. The smoking of cigarette is glamorized through advertisements. More and more young boys and girls are attracted by this. Even the ‘statutory warning’ on the cigarette packets does not stop them. The young generation thinks that those who smoke are smart, modern and intellectual. However, smoking is not a good habit. Those who smoke suffer from several health problems. A chain-smoker is the worst sufferer. Cigarette contains 4,000 types of chemicals out of which 43 are carcinogenic. The carbon monoxide concentration in the smoke is greater than20,000 ppm. This is diluted...

LIMITLESS LOVE: Essay Writing

English_Master May 24, 2016 No Comments
LIMITLESS LOVE Detachment is not renunciation. It is a reorientation of attitudes and lifestyles. Limitless love is free of bondage. It is a creative endeavour that involves a shift in consciousness. According to Sri Aurobindo, when one withdraws from the turmoil of outer life, the evolving consciousness becomes centered and observant like a detached witness. It is a state of neutrality that goes beyond body and mind to communicate with the spirit. Most techniques of self-mastery advise us not to escape from life but to live it intelligently with selflessness and detachment. We must accept responsibility for our circumstances and learn from experiences and events and then rise above the situation. This way we can relate to circumstances without losing our balance. Then we can go through life unaffected. Being centered, yet non-attached, is an art. To correct the imbalances in thought and conduct, just observe yourself objectively. It is not necessary to be judgmental; it is enough to be objective. Be a neutral observer and notice the quality of your experience, but do not get caught in self-criticism or self-approval. This process of self-study eventually leads to detachment. Non-attachment is the vairagya that precedes anurag, the flowering of divine love and bliss. To achieve the latter, sage Patanjali...

MEDITATION IS NOT MUNDANE: Essay

English_Master May 24, 2016 No Comments
MEDITATION IS NOT MUNDANE Meditation is attracting people in a big way these days. People often ask about the benefits of meditation. “What are we going to gain in meditation? Does meditation give us wealth and prosperity, besides peace of mind?” The answer to such questions is: No, meditation is not something mundane or utilitarian; it is not for business or for material gains. If you are hankering for material gains through meditation, you will become victims of those who sell all kinds of package in the name of meditation. Sadly, large-scale businesses run by unenlightened people are flourishing all over the country. An enlightened person will never promise any material gain in this world or spiritual gain in the next world. Meditation is transcendental. It can be done in the marketplace but it does not belong to the marketplace. Rather, it is a sharing of peace and bliss by those who have attained it. There is an interesting Tao story told by Osho which is on these lines: f Lao Tzu was walking with his disciples and they came to a forest where hundreds of carpenters were cutting trees, because a great palace was being built. So, the whole forest had been almost cut, but only one tree...

PRAYER: Essay Writing

English_Master May 24, 2016 No Comments
PRAYER  Prayer enables one develop devotion and has untold powers. It is possible for both monks and householders to realize god. Only some, very few, can renounce life to pursue the spiritual path and in the case of majority they have to strive for liberation while engaged in the world. Householders must seek solitude from time to time for intense spiritual practice, which may not be possible for them in their daily busy life. But it is very necessary that some time is set aside everyday for prayer so that it becomes a habit Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa used to say that one should develop total faith in the existence of god, as that is the foundation of spiritual life. If one is a non-believer, the loss is not gods but the person’s as he is frittering away the opportunity of a human birth, which is meant for attaining liberation and happiness. God is ever ready to help His devotee and the way to reach him is through prayer. If a time is set aside for prayer everyday it will get ingrained like any other habit and in course of time devotion will take deep root. Initially the distraction of family life may be disturbing but if one pursues with...

LOVING RELATIONSHIPS: Essay Writing Topics

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
LOVING RELATIONSHIPS Relationships are how we relate to others. We have relationships with everyone we know and those who are close to us. Each and every interaction we have with another person is the act of relating. If we have a problem relating to others, it affects our ability to have supportive relationships. We have to ask ourselves if our relationships are supportive, and if they are not, then ask why they are not. Everyone wants the perfect romance or marriage, but not everyone looks at the mechanics of how to have one. If we fail to have supportive relationships in our life, how can we have the “perfect love” relationships? Through the act of supporting, we honour and validate who the other person is. This is turn, validates who we are. So, both are supported; no one loses; no egos are involved; and, so doing, we honour the relationship. This is what it means to have a supportive relationship. This is the desired goal. Now, how do we accomplish it? Our conduct patterns, ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ get set as we grow up. In order to clear a problem, one must identify the original cause which created a behavioural pattern, move through the experience of that situation and experience...

LITERACY: KEY TO DEVELOPMENT: Essay

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
LITERACY: KEY TO DEVELOPMENT “Education is regarded as the most crucial investment in human development. It significantly contributes to make improvement in health, hygiene, demographic profile, productivity and practically all that has a bearing on the quality of life”. Our awareness notwithstanding, our ranking in the annual HRD (Human Resource Development) report (educational status is an integral part of this report) issued by the UNDP is somewhere nears the rock bottom. This is indeed not surprising for our country, which has the largest number of illiterates in the world and a mind boggling290 million adult illiterates. The inevitable question arises up how is that, even after 60 years of independence, we are still far away from the goal of universal literacy? Why have we come to such a sorry pass? The reasons are not far to seek. India has been investing much less than many other Asian countries in terms of educational expenditure. As a nation, not only do we spend too little on education, the efficiency of resource utilization has also been very poor. Improper planning and poor implementation have dogged our educational system. Without mincing words, we can say that we lack the political will to take the right step to secure total literacy. Anyone aged seven...

Essay Writing about JOINT FAMILY SYSTEM

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
JOINT FAMILY SYSTEM  A joint family comprises members of the family that are related to one another and share a common ancestry, religion, and property. All the working members of the family pool together what they earn and hand them over to the head — who is usually the eldest. The family head takes care of the entire family. Any member who brings in extra money has equal status. Hence, die joint family puts into practice the concept “to each according to his needs, from each according to his abilities”. The idea is socialistic in character. The joint family system is a feature of agricultural societies. These are in existence in countries as China and India whose economy is based on agricultural produce. Collective living collective farming and collective share in family wealth are the traditional features of the joint. The joint family preserves the tradition, customs and manners handed down to it. Traditional culture and skill in art and craft are safeguarded from generation to generation. There is division of labour where the members attend to different work and contribute to the welfare of the family as a unit. A joint family provides an ideal setting for culture of virtues. The foundation of joint family is based on...

Essay Topics about GURU DISCIPLE RELATIONSHIP

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
GURU DISCIPLE RELATIONSHIP  The 24th day of July is an important day for disciples everywhere, especially in India. On this auspicious day, disciples in the country will celebrate Guru Purnima and express gratitude to their gurus who are alive and also those who have attained nirvana and left their body. An often-askec question is: “Does a guru who is no longer in his physical body help his disciples on their spiritual journey and evolvement in consciousness?” There is always a big debate on this subject—and the answer to this question is both yes and no. Even after his departure from this world, a guru-is always available to a disciple, provided he is a genuine disciple and the guru is a real guru. A disciple who has full faith benefits the most. Basically, it all depends on the receptivity and understanding of the disciple and his love and devotion to the mentor, If the disciple is a student just interested in collecting informative knowledge and enhancing his ego, he will not be able to make any headway—and in the process will not be able to receive much help from the teacher. His ego will function as a barrier between him and his guru. It is only when the disciple is...

Essay Writing Topics FULL OF LOVE

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
FULL OF LOVE Meditation is way of living full of love and consciousness. It is not about going to temples, praying hurriedly and yet continues living life mechanically and accidentally. Meditation means to bring spiritual awareness to each act—big and small The quality of love and acts of meditation, go hand in hand. If you meditate, says Osho, you will simply love; it will be just a quality of your being. And then it has a different flavour and does not create bondage. Then you share unconditionally and your love is just the way you naturally are. Osho tells a story, once a mystic was travelling with his disciples. They come to a sarai. In the morning, the keeper of the sarai offered tea and snacks. While they were drinking their tea, suddenly, the keeper fell at the master’s feet, ecstatic—crying with joy. The disciples were puzzled. How could he know that this person was the master? It was supposed to be a secret and the disciples were told that nobody ought to be told who the master is. They were all dressed alike. The master was moving incognito. Who has told this sarai-keeper? The disciples looked worried. They inquired, but nobody had told; nobody had even talked to...

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
FAITH AND REASON  There is no conflict between faith and reason. May we examine the issue in some detail? In this context prayers offered in full faith are very efficacious. Prayer does not change things. It changes people, and they change things. So do not pray for lighter burdens; pray for stronger back. Rabbi Eliezer once said, ‘Turn to god one day before your death.” His disciples asked: “How can a man know the day of his death?” The Rabbi replied: ‘Then you should turn to god today; perhaps you will die tomorrow; thus everyday will be employed in returning to god.” Faith, as embodied in religion, and reason as embodied in science are often but erroneously thought of as being in opposition to each other. Science is not an enemy of religion, only of superstition. Both science and religion are engaged in the search for truth, the main difference lies in the methodologies used. Science is an investigation of truth in the finite nature outside, the object. Religion is an investigation into the nature of the infinite, the subject. Science aims for universally verifiable knowledge. Religion aims for individual realization. We are closer to the physical world than to the metaphysical. We respect science, because it is premised...

Essay about DIVINE DIRECTIVES

English_Master May 23, 2016 No Comments
DIVINE DIRECTIVES Divine directives have to be obeyed. Several are the categorical assurances given by god to men of deep faith to save them from ordeals (which have been made known in the holy texts). One among such statements refers to the bad elements “who disturb the peace of devotees who abide by this Law of Righteousness”. “When hatred develops in the mind of an individual towards various gods, the Vedas, the bovine race, the pious souls, towards the virtuous and I, that person will surely perish before long”, says the Lord in the Gita. He gave a long rope to one such individual who claimed him to be god and forced everyone to recognize him alone as “supreme”. However, when he overstepped his limits and tortured his child, who defied him, reposing full confidence only in Divine dispensation, god interfered and protected him from different dangers and punished the evildoer. In the grand, elaborate and perfect scheme of god’s administrative machinery duties have been assigned to groups, including celestials, the aim being the strict maintenance of the Law of Righteousness. When people fail to carry out the Divine directives, problems are bound to arise. When there is a duty for the god of rains to do his job...
