Essay Writing about FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN INDIA

Jose John August 8, 2016 No Comments
FUTURE OF DEMOCRACY IN INDIA The question regarding the future of democracy in India is not a matter of forecast but rather a real concern. It does not make sense to ask if the future of democracy is bright or bleak. The future of democracy will be what we make of it. The chief merit of democracy is that it is based on the principles of consent and dialogue. It upholds the principle of liberty. The slogan of democracy is “liberty, equality and fraternity”. Freedom of thought and expression is the backbone of democracy. The delays of law and economic disparities and injustice are undemocratic. Unfortunately, there is clear evidence of this in this country. India today presents a picture of only the form of democracy, the outer frame work without the real content. Because of the growing selfishness, corruption, lack of equality tolerance and love, the undemocratic trends have intensified. The casteism, religious, fenaticisra have countered all efforts for social, political and economic equality. The weak and helpless masses exploited by the politicians. The independence of India is 58 years old now about 65% of the people as illiterate, so they are not able to enjoy the fruits of democracy. So people no longer believe in the politician’s...

Jose John August 6, 2016 No Comments
INDIA IN SPACE Many countries have been trying to establish their superiority in space. Some want at least their presence felt. The history of space programmes of the progressive countries has been a chequered one. It has been rather apart of the cold war between the two big powers-the erst while USSR and USA. The space became a store house of the nuclear arsenal of the west. With the disintegration of the former USSR the things have changed everywhere. India’s concern for peaceful venture in the space has become relevant. For the common man in the country space is associated with the name of sq. Id. Rakesh Sharma the only Indian so far to visit the space aboard SOY UZ T-H of Soviet-Union on April 5, 1984. It was a short journey fulfilling the ambition of India to have an astronaut. It was actually no achievement for India- a mere lift given by a space traveller to an Indian too. It has not yet enjoyed the luxury of having a space ship for her own. We care ill afford fabulous cost. The moreover it has no utility for the country that has been starting and arranging programmes for peace. India has no intention to interfere in the affair, of...

INDIAN DEMOCRACY AND PRESS: Short Essay

Jose John August 6, 2016 No Comments
INDIAN DEMOCRACY AND PRESS An efficient and fearless free press is one of the pre-requisites of a democracy. Existence of a free press satisfies the condition as for as Indian democracy is concerned. It acts as a watch dog of democracy where ideas and majority opinions prevail. When a single party rules with over whelming and brute majority, its decision often goes one sided and against national interest. There was no active opposition to resist or criticize the rulings. It was for the press to watch the activities of govt, highlights its failures when it deviates from the path of democracy. In a democracy, people’s participation in the Govt, affairs is vital for the efficient working of the administration. The press, by presenting the burning topical issues to the people for their consumption and reflections, causes the people’s participation in the nation’s affairs. The voice of the press is the voice of the people. Censoring the press means the suppression of people’s voice. The survival of the democracy invariably depends on the freedom of the press. The press should not fail to follow its code of conduct and misuse the freedom. Democracy presupposes the existence of a well educated people. Only a well educated and intelligent people could understood...

LITERACY IN INDIA: Essay Writing

Jose John August 6, 2016 No Comments
LITERACY IN INDIA Talk to a politician or a bureaucrat about the fate of education he would immediately shift to literacy. He would like to emphasize that literacy picked up in the country during eighties and nineties. For the most of us it is difficult to calculate the number of educated people i.e., those who have studied at least up to higher secondary stage. But for the literate statistics are easily available. And who is considered literate in India? Even one who can write his name and read it is literate. There may be some who can read the headlines of newspaper or go through some lines of a religious book. Any way the statistics are quite deceptive and misleading. They are prepared by the field workers to show their efficiency- if not in producing sizable number of really literate people at least in producing paper records in a sizeable number to please the people at helm of the fainters. Some of them may be true. They are conscientious people everywhere though in small fraction. Taking into consideration the records prepared, Kerala should be proud of having the largest number of literates in the country. It is 98% by the end of nineties. Kerala has been always known as country’s showcase state in Education. Southern states have always risen to the need of the...

Essay about NEED FOR SOCIAL REFORM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA

Jose John August 5, 2016 No Comments
NEED FOR SOCIAL REFORM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA On the stroke of midnight, the 15th of August 1947, we take up to life and freedom. But very soon we were back again in the same old track, prosperity, modernization and healthy living seen a distant reality and possibility. Now it is not the English who enslaved us but we are enslaved by our own old orthodox views and function. After years of independence our progress has been very slow. Mere modernization will not make our nation great but modernization should be started from the grass root level. If the society is modem, up dated and free from prejudices, India will surely gain its true independence from mental slavery and will surely jump to a successful nation. The main drawback of our society is that gender discrimination. Men and women are the two wheels of life. Life can never be a smooth sailing of one of its wheels neglected. Men should always remember that “behind every great man, there is a woman”. By giving equal rights to woman, India can take the first step towards social and economic development. Reforms should be initiated to make the people realize the benefit of equal treatment to the females. Another problem faced...

POPULATION PROBLEM OF INDIA: Short Essay

Jose John August 4, 2016 No Comments
POPULATION PROBLEM OF INDIA One of the most serious problems that India faces today is the problem of over population. Our population today is about one billion, and is second only to that of China. Our population is growing at the rate of 16 million per annum. The number of new mouths that are annually added to our population almost equal to total population of Australia is increasing in geometrical progression, where as production is increasing only in arithmetical progression. If the present trend continues, our population might surpass China by 2045. We have already celebrated the 50th year of India’s Independence, but there has been little economic progress. The main reason for this is the population explosion Jawaharlal Nehru once said “India’s population problem is not one, but 400 million problems”. Today this number has swelled up to one billion. Our rising population graph is attributed to (1) tropical climate (2) early marriage (3) decline in death rate (4) ignorance, old custom and tradition, and (5) illiteracy. India is situated in the tropical belt. Hot climate leads to early puberty and maturity, which gives rise to increase in population. Lack of education is another cause for increasing population. People think the bigger the number of persons in the...

Jose John August 3, 2016 No Comments
SUICIDES IN INDIA According to a report on National Crime Records Bureau there were more than 70,000 known cases of suicide every year in India. In 1980 there were 41,663 cases. They grew to 73,911 in 1990 and are during expected to be more than one lakhs the first decade of the century. It means once every seven and half minutes in 1990 and 5 minutes in 1994. Andre Beteille, a sociologist concluded that there are suicides whenever there is a sudden change in economic status. A sudden fall in economic status may result in a suicide. But a sudden improvement also causes it. Someone who is a bit left behind in the race gets frustrated leading to suicide. Rajesh sinha feels that with increasing population and urbanization, money has become very important for survival. If there is insufficient money the game ends with life itself. In mid nineties twelve families were driven to suicide in Kerala alone because of financial problem. According to a sociologist the crumbling of joint family system takes the check away. People, out of the family have no psychological or emotional support. In the movement of tension such individuals cannot cope with it. They cannot face the competitive set up of the society and...

VIOLENCE AND POLITICS IN INDIA: Essay Writing Topics

Jose John June 12, 2016 No Comments
VIOLENCE AND POLITICS IN INDIA  Politics has come to acquire a bad odour and generally implies unfair, underhand dealings, exploitation of the poor and the ignorant, though it need not necessarily be so. Since it generally involves the attainment of certain objectives, such as the seizure of power by all available methods, violence often becomes a part of it. Of course, violence need not be a vital or essential part of politics even in the most ill-governed country, but there is no doubt that unscrupulous politicians seldom hesitate to resort to violent methods to achieve their aims. Whenever the practitioners of the art of politics find that normal and socially acceptable methods and practices have not brought them the desired achievements, they stoop to unethical methods, including incitement of sensitive people to violence. It is tragic reflection on civilization that with the much-publicized progress in various spheres of human activity the resort to violence has also increased. In fact, one of the dominating factors in the postwar years is the growth of the spirit of violence. Even in India, where the apostle of peace and non-violence, Mahatma Gandhi, preached that violence is both degrading and derogatory to human beings, the menace has been increasing. Proof of this dismal phenomenon...

THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN MODERN INDIA: Essay

Jose John June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE ROLE OF WOMEN IN MODERN INDIA The women of India have into come their own.  They are playing their roles in all walks of life shoulder to shoulder men. There are women in Foreign Service, in the Indian Administrative Service, in medicine, in Education, in business, as Company Directors, as computer operators and stenographers, as receptionists, as air hostesses, as politicians and even the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi, led them to a destination where sky is the limit. Now women in service have even become a common sight and they have proved that they possess good capacity to handle jobs better than men. It was in the fitness of things that the United Nations Organization declared 1975 as International Women’s Year. At that time Mrs. Indira Gandhi was also the Prime Minister of India and Mrs. Bhandarnaike was the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka, another intelligent woman. In India women have been up and doing well in all walks of life, Mrs. Sucheta Kripalani was the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Mrs. Vijaya Laxmi Pandit was the President of the United Nations Organization in the early days after independence. In the olden and golden days of Indian history, when the Aryans came to...

THE STORY OF INDIAN SATELLITES: Essay Topics

Jose John June 11, 2016 No Comments
THE STORY OF INDIAN SATELLITES On 18th July, 1980 at 8.04 a.m. India launched the third Satellite, Rohini RS-I into the orbit. It was a matter of great pleasure and satisfaction for the Indian Scientists as well as for the whole nation that an indigenously developed SL-3 fabricated at the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre at Trivandrum went off from the Indian Space Research Organization’s Sriharikota, Range, 100 k.m. north of Madras.

After half an hour of its take off, the stations at Sriharikota, Ahmadabad, Fizi and Kourou received signal from it. These signals were about the attitude, temperature and electronic gadgets. The weight of...

THE INDIAN WOMEN TODAY: Essay

Jose John June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE INDIAN WOMEN TODAY The times have changed radically, and the Indian woman of today is no longer reconciled to her traditional role as a mere housewife, a mother or a daughter. Whether it is higher education, or the general and fast spreading enlightenment about rights and privileges, and the concepts of equality between man and woman, that are responsible for the distinctly notable awakening among this section of mankind, it is difficult to say. Perhaps the change in attitudes and the increasing demands for a better status in life and a more important role in national life are the cumulative result of all relevant factors operating simultaneously. The more enlightened women of today take delight in recalling that woman was regarded in ancient times as the perfect workmanship of God and the glory of angels. But the typical Indian woman, especially in the urban areas, is a specimen of the perfect workmanship of God, a symbol of self-sacrifice, an angel in human form, a source of eternal joy, devotion and everlasting love and affection. Far from it, countless women, notably those who are well-educated or otherwise qualified for certain types of jobs, are eager to get employed and become economically independent Generally, the desire to get jobs is...

THE COMPOSITE CULTURE OF INDIA: Essay

Jose John June 10, 2016 No Comments
THE COMPOSITE CULTURE OF INDIA Culture and civilization are two such concepts, which are devoid of any concrete definition. The word ‘culture’ broadly covers the sum total of a nation’s aesthetic and intellectual achievements. India from time immemorial has been regarded as a land of composite culture and prosperity—thus attracting intellectuals and adventurers alike—may they be the Romans, who traded with the Tamil kingdoms of the south or the Christian missionaries of the 1st Century A.D. landing in Kerala or the persecuted forefathers of present day Parsis who sought asylum in the Western coast of India. Thus, culture can be regarded as the widening of mind as well as of spirit. The essence of our composite culture through the ages has been its capacity to absorb various streams of cultures. The core around which other cultures took shelter and eventually got absorbed has resulted in the ‘compositeness’ of our culture. The essential feature of this composite culture is broad-based, which focuses mainly on tolerance, adaptiveness with a unique individuality. It is, therefore, amazing to note that the same essence that existed before many millennia has continued till today and is continuing. Very few things in history are more astonishing than the wonderful stability of the social structure in India,...

Essay Writing Topics about SECULARISM IN INDIA

Jose John June 9, 2016 No Comments
SECULARISM IN INDIA “I do not expect India of my dreams to develop one religion, i.e., to be wholly Hindu or wholly Christian or wholly Mussalman, but I want it to be wholly tolerant, with its religious working side by side with one another” On paper India is unquestionably a secular state with secure constitutional guarantees for all citizens. Yet at a social and politicallevel secularism seems an abstraction. There is a serious contradiction between the secular goal of the Indian Constitution and the growing communalism of its polity. Secularism cannot be defined without relating it to the socio-political context. What is true in the western context may not be necessarily valid in Indian context and vice versa. Secularism in philosophy and politics is religious and scared forms and practices in favour of rational assessment and decision-making. Western dictionaries define “secularism” as the absence of religion, but Indian secularism means a profusion of religions, none of which is privileged by the state. Secularism in India does mean irreligiousness rather it means multi-religiousness. However Indian society was very different from the European society in its socio-religious structure and could not, therefore, imitate the eastern model of secularism. It had to evolve its own experimental context. Since there was not any...

PORTRAIT OF THE INDIAN POLITICIAN: Essay

Jose John June 6, 2016 No Comments
PORTRAIT OF THE INDIAN POLITICIAN Politics is much too complex a phenomenon for anyone to think of it or describe it in straight lines, and since the vast and ever-growing tribe of politicians practices this art; they too seldom act or plan straight. They are not what they seem, and they seem what they are not. Jawaharlal Nehru was himself a politician; apart of course from being a great has statesman, thinker, philosopher and a man of letters. But he was frank enough to concede that politicians usually hide their real reasons and the talk pompously of religion, justice, the truth arid the like. And still the great majority of the people are taken in by the soft, deceptive talk of politicians. No wonder, this tribe generally proves a roaring success in; today’s gullible India, where the vast majority of the masses are illiterate and highly credulous. The typical Indian politician is a man without principles and without scrapples of any kind; he is an opportunist par excellence. He changes his colours like the chameleon. Loyalty, sincerity and honesty are as far removed from him as the earth is from the sky. It is true that a politician has to deal with human beings and not with stones and steel;...

INDIA’S RELATIONS-WITH OTHER COUNTRIES AT PRESENT: Essay

Jose John June 4, 2016 No Comments
INDIA’S RELATIONS-WITH OTHER COUNTRIES AT PRESENT  Indo-US Relations—After President Bush took over in January 2001, he assured India of continued improvement in ties. In early May 2001, the US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage visited India and the Vajpayee government used the opportunity to reaffirm its broad endorsement of US plan for a “new strategic framework” —including its controversial National Missile Defence programme. US Assistant Secretary of Stare for South Asia, Christina Rocca, visited in mid-July, 2001 and signaled the broad contours of Bush Policy. She stressed that the US wants to have bilateral relations that we are truly bilateral and not to view the relations with one country through the prism of the third country. On August 8, the visiting US trade representative Robert Zoellick announced 540 million worth to tariff concessions for Indian export to the USA. It was also decided to set up a bilateral trade policy-working group. US Secretary of State Collin Powel visited in October, 2001 and assured India that its war on terrorism would indeed address the menace that India has been battling in Jammu & Kashmir. On November 9, 2001, Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee visited Washington and held talks with President Bush over wide-ranging issues, including the ongoing global campaign...
