Teacher, Mother, Secret lover! What else can it be, than our very own Television?

Over the years, the popularity of television has grown to such an extent that today, at least one Television set can be found in almost every home in the world. Its the menace that everyone loves to hate but can't seem to live without.

Nowadays, there are hundreds of television channels. For those who are ill or housebound, television provides them with a company while they are alone, whereas others just enjoy the entertainment factor. Entertainment in the home can be very challenging for the most loving families; therefore television can be a good thing as it can provide parents with a "babysitter"! For those older folk who can no longer cope with going out for shopping, TV is the answer! Not to forget the teens who simply can't seem to have enough of Hannah Montana or the lovely middle-aged ladies who love watching their favorite series of either 'Desperate Housewives' or 'Sex and The City'! Though, actually going to a concert has a better atmosphere than just watching it on television, some people praise this as it is much cheaper than buying a ticket to go to the venue itself. TV has brought the education at viewers' door-steps. It has encouraged formal and open education in a big way.

Well, those were just the 'WOW' factors of Television. However, its not all good! For instance, while I was in middle-school, I had this unforgettable poem on a couple who was highly addicted to TV. They watched Television for days and nights together; never did they make a single movement! It seemed as if Television was the one and only sole reason for them to stay alive. Suddenly, after a few days, the electricity went off making the screen go blank. Its just at that point of time that they looked at each other for the first time ever and exchanged some warm 'Hello's and 'How do you do's.…...

Metro Rail System in India : Boon or Bane

...Metro rail systems: Boon or bane for urban India? Indian cities will begin operating metro rail transport systems in seven cities, which taking the total number of cities with such systems to 11. But some fear that the sleek trains will be unaffordable for the vast majority of city dwellers, where 77 per cent of the population lives on less than 20 rupees (S$ 0.45) a day. Mumbai - based civil engineer Sudhir Badami, said that the metro transport system might be viable to some extent in big cities, but certainly not in smaller cities. They are already struggling to find money to provide their basic facilities such as piped drinking water, sanitation, education and health care. Others also think that building a metro network takes too long and is too disruptive. In contrast a bus system can be put in place within a year with minimal disturbance. They also believed a well – planned bus system can carry 30,000 commuters an hour. It is the same number as a metro rail system. In contrast, the director of urban development ministry in New Delhi, Prakash Singh said that buses are not feasible in some cities. He thought that cities needs additional land to widen existing roads and create a dedicated bus corridor. But, a separate, dedicated corridor was carved out from the existing road and ended up creating chaos on the road as other vehicle had to make do with much narrower road. In my opinion, the government in India should still create the metro rail transport system but with...

Naxalsim: Boon or Bane for Oppressed

...In Favour: Naxalites, also known as Naxals, are a group of people waging violent struggle on behalf of the oppressed tribes and landless labourers against the landlords and others exploiting them. The inception, ideology, spread and sustenance of Naxalism are deeply rooted in socio-economic conditions. The ideology of Naxalite is to fight oppression and exploitation to create a classless society. The Communist Party of India (Marxist-Leninist) is the political guise that promulgates the Naxalite ideology. The manifestation of the above ideology is seen in the very first Naxalbari uprising that took place in 1967 in Naxalbari village of Darjeeling district. The local goons there attacked a tribal who had been given land, under the tenancy laws, by the court. In retaliation, the tribals attacked landlords and claimed the land. The West Bengal State Secretariat of the CPI (M) stated, “Behind the peasant unrest in Naxalbari lies a deep social malafide transfers, evictions and other anti-people actions of tea gardeners and jotedars.” India is a free country but its people are yet to acquire freedom from hunger and deprivation and that the rich class of Zamindars, traders, industrialists, etc. control the means of production. Very often, the Adivasis, the Dalits and the underprivileged poor, who work as landless labourers for penny are exploited by the filthy rich landlords and are paid frequently below the mandated minimum wage rate.
