Har ghar tiranga? Wanted har ghar naukri: right time to introspect what went wrong

By Syed Ahmed Ali* 

Seventy five years of Independence is the right time to introspect and should take the social impact report of the present government, and how people are feeling about their own country and their future.
We are proud that India has its largest ever adolescent and youth population in the world. According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) projections, India will continue to have one of the youngest populations in the world till 2030. But it’s very shocking after knowing that more than nine lakh Indians have given up their Indian citizenship since 2014 and more than six lakhs in the last five years. Is the data not a reflection that even after 75 years since we gained our independence from the British, we have been unable to build a country that is strong and stable enough for Indians to return and settle back after their professional or business stints abroad?
Youths are assets of the nation. They are educated, technologically skilled, and highly competent and yet, they are leaving India. This is a matter of great concern. The increased number of Indians becoming citizens of other countries since 2014, also shows the lack of confidence in them the future of their children and the direction of the nation in terms of securing basic rights for all its citizens and upholding certain principles for governing the country, and it is important for the government to deliver on the question of providing jobs to our youth. The government should provide at least one house for every family and provide a job for each family head so that everyone can live a life with respect.
The government, however, did not seem to be serious about this and was raising only emotional issues to side-track the real issues.
Youth is the backbone of the country and they are the future of the country. Sadly, many of our young minds are leaving the country just because they don’t find a bright future in the country.
If this situation continues then how can we become “Vishva Guru”?
Time to ponder and plan for the best.

A Hindu alternative to Valentine's Day? 'Shiv-Parvati was first love marriage in Universe'

By Rajiv Shah*   The other day, I was searching on Google a quote on Maha Shivratri which I wanted to send to someone, a confirmed Shiv Bhakt, quite close to me -- with an underlying message to act positively instead of being negative. On top of the search, I chanced upon an article in, imagine!, a Nashik Corporation site which offered me something very unusual. 

Swami Vivekananda's views on caste and sexuality were 'painfully' regressive

By Bhaskar Sur* Swami Vivekananda now belongs more to the modern Hindu mythology than reality. It makes a daunting job to discover the real human being who knew unemployment, humiliation of losing a teaching job for 'incompetence', longed in vain for the bliss of a happy conjugal life only to suffer the consequent frustration.

Why's Govt of India reluctant to consider battery storage system for renewal energy?

By Shankar Sharma*  If having so many small size battery energy storage system (BESS) at different locations of the grid, as in the report from Australia (a portfolio of 27 small battery storage projects across three Australian states that will total arounds 270 MWh), is considered to be techno-economically attractive in a commercially driven market such as Australia, the question that becomes a lot more relevance to Indian scenario is: why are our planners not in favour of installing such small size BESS at most of the distribution sub-stations not only to accelerate the addition of RE power capacities, but also to minimise the need for large size solar/ wind power parks, dedicated transmission lines and pumped storage plants; which will also minimise the associated technical losses.

'Failure of governance': India, China account for 54% pollution-related deaths globally

By Vikas Parsaram Meshram*   A recent report jointly prepared by UNICEF and the independent research organization Health Effects Institute has been released, and the statistics within it are alarming. It states that in 2021, air pollution caused the deaths of 2.1 million Indians, including 169,000 children who hadn't yet fully experienced life. These figures are indeed distressing and raise questions about why there hasn't been more serious effort in this direction, putting policymakers to shame.
