Have we Tryst-Ed with our Destiny Yet?

The future beckons to us. Whither do we go and what shall be our endeavor? To bring freedom and opportunity to the common man, to the peasants and workers of India; to fight and end poverty and ignorance and disease; to build up a prosperous, democratic and progressive nation, and to create social, economic and political institutions which will ensure justice and fullness of life to every man and woman.”

The infamous Independence day speech by Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru promised not only freedom for the country but also hope. Hope for a better future for the millions, who were alien to the concept of democracy, state, nation and all the things that the colonisers stripped us of. A nation was then born, divided, brought together like the pieces of a puzzle and from there the journey of an independent India began. The end goal was set and promises were made, but have we been able to keep those promises and fulfill those wishes?

The Divide of Kashmir – A Historical Overview

Let’s get an insight into something that happened over 72 years ago and to this day remains an important topic of discussion and deliberation.

When the partition between India and Pakistan was happening, Jammu and Kashmir was given an option to either be a part of India or Pakistan. But the then ruler, Maharaja Hari Singh took the decision to remain as an independent state, a decision he would have surely regretted later.

Idol Immersion Pollution In India

“When the well is dry, we will know the worth of water.” – Benjamin Franklin. The human body is so designed that waiting to know what water is worth isn’t an option because we can last only three days without water. It is estimated that by 2025 an approximate 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity, with two-thirds of the world’s population living in water-stressed regions. In fact, there are already around 500 “dead zones” – which are hypoxic (low oxygen) areas in the world’s oceans and large lakes that cannot support life – on earth, which is the equivalent of the territory of the United Kingdom.

Financial Inclusion in India

‘I want to start a new business, I guess I will borrow money from my uncle who lives in the next village’, is a statement that is said very often in our country and highlights a problem that needs immediate attention. If you still don’t understand the issue we are talking about, its Financial Exclusiveness in India.

The Planning Commission VS NITI Aayog: Evaluating the Differences

From 1950 to 2014 India had a centralized institute for planning and policy formulation known as the Planning Commission. It was scrapped in 2014 and 2015 which ultimately saw the birth of NITI Aayog. While NITI Aayog was formed as a successor of the Planning Commission, it is extremely imperative to understand that they are not the same. There are many differences between the two bodies. In this article I have attempted to highlight the same to give the reader a better understanding about the two bodies.

10 Important Amendments to the Indian Constitution

The Constitution was written and enacted on 26th November, 1949. The Indian Constitution, the longest written constitution in the world was written with great detail and clarity by the Constitution makers. They ensured that the constitution was flexible enough to accommodate the changes and improvements in the future. The Constitution has been amended several times since, and as of 2019 has 103 Constitutional Amendments. Amending the Constitution is not an easy procedure, that is what gives strength and authority to it. But, it is also crucial that the Constitution adapts to the changing needs of the time.

The Ram Janambhoomi – Excavating the Facts

When the lines between religion and politics get blurred, history is created. The Ram Janmabhoomi- Babri Masjid dispute has been one of those sentimental epicentres which have time and again redefined Hindu-Muslim relations in India. Whenever Hindu-Muslim relations are studied, this issue is often considered the third most important, after Partition and Kashmir. Nonetheless, history tells us that it’s importance and influence can never be underestimated as it has challenged the very social fabric, law and order of India repeatedly. This, along with the political relevance of the issue, is what makes it is such an integral part of the country’s history, present as well as the future.
