bahut bahut badhai ho sir & Tq sir
How if women had the same resources as men would lead to fewer hungry people? Thank you for the lessons sir.
Naturally women perform better than in case of household work.the same logic applies to you question.
Deepanshu sir have so many followers that he get jumbled up in even telling their exact numbers ;)
The conclusion in women and invisible unemployed seems out of place. The issue is not about women entering man's world or men accepting women. Its more about men taking on responsibility of unpaid care work and giving due recognition to unpaid care work in GDP calculations
i have an issue about this whole sanitary revolution which is put upon indian women mindlessly. i don't know why people are unable to understand that rural women use clothes and wash them and dry them in sun which is a lot hygenic then these sanitary pads. and if sanitary pads are considered the only solution then why american women are increasing buyung clothe made sanitary napkins which could be rewashed and use sustainably and are environment friendly. please have an informed opinion about the women empowerment before speaking on it. and i would like to stop this imposition of western standards on Indian Women.(this is also a part pf colonial mentality of imposing victorian chastity and idea of civilization upon our culture) Indian women in rural area do not need this sanitary napkin revolution. what they need is mpre dignity and space to discuss about their mensturation and problems related to their health.
plzz review.... Democracy is a political system in which the particular geography is being ruled by the people; directly or through elected representatives which ensures the maximum participation of the people. In case of India we have indirect democracy which is run through the representor who are been elected by the people through the election as per the rule of law. nevertheless, in democracy there is no limit of the people contesting elections and who ever gets the highest vote declared winner. however the average voting turnover of india is about 65 per cent, so if there is 10 candidates contesting in one constituency, whoever will ensure 15 to 20 per cent vote might/will be the winner. But due to personal he might not serve rest who did not vote for him. In this case he will serve only 20 per cent whoever voted for him. Another case might be that who that particular section who lured to vote him i.e. women, majority of muscles men, or a particular caste. So the paradox is that, the democracy one side claimed, the participation of the people but as per aforesaid the very on field model of representation gets tilted towards the particular section of the society. hence, even in democracy 100 per cent fairness can not be claimed. but still every 5th year is the chance to change the representative and think for the better one.

  10. MINT: INDIA'S EDUCATION SPENDING NEEDS A COURSE ON ACCOUNTABILITY GS-2 Despite an increase in spending, educational outcomes in schools have worsened in India in the last decade o Additions to the Learning deficit series of the Hindu and ASER-2016 report o Hard Facts-The percentage of children in standard five who can do division has declined from 42.5% in 2007 to 26% in 2016, while the percentage of those who can read a standard two text has worsened from 53% in 2006 to 48% in 2016. Only a fourth of students in standard five can read English sentences o Surprisingly-this decline has happened despite enhanced spending on school education. Between 2006 and 2013, public expenditure on school education increased from 2.2% to 2.68% of GDP Educational outcomes have worsened, except for enrollment School education spending has increased in the last decade The columns show total central and state spending as percentage of GDP % of children aged 6-14 not enrolled in school 2.7 2.7 2.59 253 6.60 2.30 22 2.2 22 22 2.30 25 26 27 27 4.2 4.3 3.40 3.30 3.5 3.30 3.30 3.1

  11. Reasons for this increase number of unknown sources funding: The reason for these is that under the present income tax law, parties need not disclose the names of those donating up to 20,000. o To enjoy income tax exemption, they need to maintain records only of those who donate sums above 20,000 o This provision effectively gives parties the advantage of converting big donations as small contributions from anonymous donors. From these facts, we can say that less than a third of their total income comes from known sources. This puts the question of transparency in political funding in our mind, Because this Transparency in funding is essential to ensuring clean, democratic governance. How and why should we need transparency in funding? o Political parties in the legislature make critical decisions, and their donors could have a bearing on policy. o In 2013, the Central Information Commission ruled that political parties were covered under the Right to Information Act. It was pointed out that they got tax exemptions, land allotments and free airtime on state-owned media.

  12. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations-estimates that if women farmers had the same resources as men, it would have led to 150 million fewer hungry people Amartya Sen-empowerment of women is the key to improving human million fewer hurn development for the whole society elopment for the whole society o women's liberation has to be based on concrete material foundations. It is women's unpaid care work, which makes work and sport outside the home possible. some women break out of the private sphere and enter the public sphere, the unpaid care work falls upon lowly-paid women domestic help from the most marginalised backgrounds, and poor immigrant women in developed countries o Women's empowerment is not merely about women becoming wrestlers or fighter pilots, which are, of course, important symbolic gestures. But for real equality, it is imperative that women's care work be given its due material recognition o All these issue came up because of the movie Dangal and a famous dialogue from it "A critical scene in the film is Mahavir Phogat instructing his wife that the daughters will not do chulha-chowka (household work) any more, but will henceforth devote time to wrestling" o Thus the question of "who is going to do the work that the girls are liberated from? and women empowerment

  13. o Serena Williams and entry of black women in sports have not changed the situation of women ,especially in Africa o So the author finally says For the real equality for women, along with the Mahavir Phogats, we need the likes of Arunachalam Muruganantham, the man who revolutionised women's health by inventing cheap sanitary napkins Will women fit into the male world when it comes to labour and will the male dominated labour sector accept it and will it lead to women empowerment?
