How can we protect journalists from harm?

Protecting the rights of journalists is one of the central premises for ensuring that the media functions efficiently and effectively as the ‘4th Arm’ of the state. Sadly, in India’s case, this hasn’t been the norm. In a recent survey undertaken by ‘Reporters without Borders’, it was reported that India ranked 136 out of 180 countries in the ‘Press Freedom Index’. The murder of fearlessly outspoken journalists in India has become a norm. In recent

आतंकी तत्वों को रोकने के लिए एक-जुट होना पड़ेगा

हाल ही मे अमेरिका के लास वेगस (एल. वी.) मे एक आतंकवादी ने आम जनता पर गोलियों की बौछार शुरू कर दी। हालांकि आतंकवादी ने इस घिनौने काम के बाद ख़ुदकुशी कर ली, दुखद रूप से डर और आतंक फैलाने के अपने मंसूबे मे वो कामयाब हुआ। सरकारी सूत्रों के अनुसार इस ‘एनकाउंटर’ मे करीबन 60 लोगों की मौत हुई और 530 लोग घायल हुए। और भी चौकाने वाली बात यह है कि स्टीफन क्रैग

India’s North West: A Picture Starting to Emerge

Afghan Taliban’s intransigence on the peace process coupled with its attack on civilians in Kabul has forced the four powers initially driving the peace process to increase the pressure on the group. President Ghani’s announcement to initiate a 5-year war strategy[1] against the Taliban, American drone strike on the head of the Taliban[2] travelling through Baluchistan and Pakistan policy of stepping up operations[3] on the terrorist groups have put the group on the defensive.

The waltz of death is free and running open

Dear Bihar, Can you hear those sounds? Don’t worry the guns are still biting the dust, but the sound of those firecrackers are surely an indication of the things to come. I am at loss of words, last year you had that one power of choosing the right ballot and you landed up choosing the wrong bullet. What have you guys done?

व्यापम बेताल कथा

विक्रम-बेताल से कहीं ज्यादा लोमहर्षक है, व्यापम बेताल कथा। वह कहानी राजा विक्रमादित्य के ज़माने की थी, यह कहानी राजा शिवराज सिंह के जमाने की है। उस कहानी में बेताल को राजा जबरन अपने वश में करता और अपने कंधे पर लादकर आगे बढ़ता था। इस कहानी में राजा पिंड छुड़ाने को जी-तोड़ कोशिश कर रहा है। लेकिन बेताल है कि पीछा छोड़ने को तैयार ही नहीं है। मंत्र अनुष्ठान, पूजा हवन सब बेकार साबित

Child Labour – Unlocking India’s Hidden Shame

The government might soon allow child labour, but only for ‘family enterprises’. This is the result of the latest amendment to the Child Labour Prohibition Act, which has fought to give millions of children a future that doesn’t exploit them. It is a matter of concern. Children are the gifts of God who fill the world with happiness, joy, and hope. They are the future citizens of a country, therefore, an individual’s childhood determines his
