Women Empowerment – Myth Or Reality

You can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of its women.

– Jawaharlal Nehru

Empowerment of any section of a society is a myth until they are conferred equality before law. The foundation of freedom, justice and fraternity is based on the recognition of the inherent dignity and of equal and inalienable rights to all the members of the society. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted and proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 10th December 1948, envisaged in Article 2 that “every one is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration without distinction of any kind.”

It has traditionally been accepted that the thread of family weaves the fabric of Indian society. Women are considered as the hub center of the family. Still, in the era of political domination by foreigners, the women in India suffered most. A few social reform measures were taken towards the later 19th and early 20th century during the British regime. The inception of Mahatma Gandhi in the National freedom movement ushered a new concept of mass mobilization. Women constituted about 50{512b763ef340c1c7e529c41476c7e03bc66d8daea696e1162822661d30dde056} of the country’s total population, he, therefore, involved women in the nation’s liberation movement. The mass participation of women directly in the freedom struggle was the great divide in the history of (Feminist movement) empowerment of women. They shed age-old disabilities and shared the responsibility of liberation of their motherland with their counter parts. The freedom of India thus became synonymous with the empowerment of women. In this context the date of India’s political freedom (August 15, 1947) is a landmark in the history of women empowerment in India. It brought in its wake a great consciousness in our society for human dignity. It was realized that every citizen of independent India be accorded equal treatment under the law.

This is the urban age and Women along with men are here to make an impact, let’s not ignore them, let’s listen and prioritize them. In almost all societies through history, Women have occupied secondary position vis-à-vis men.

Women’s rights and issues have always been a subject of serious concern of academicians, intelligentsia and policy makers. From pastoral society to contemporary information and global society, the role of Women has changed drastically. The role of a typical “Grihani” (house wife) who catered to all the requirements of the house holds including the rearing and upbringing of children in various sub roles of daughter, daughter-in-law, wife, mother, aunt etc. has been played quite efficiently. The continuity of changes in socio-economic and psycho-cultural aspects of human living has influenced the role of Women. With the process of Industrialization, Modernization and Globalization showing its deep impact on the human society all over the world, the role and responsibilities of Women has attained new definition and perspective. Further this has also led to addition of responsibilities and widened the role of Women who also shares the financial responsibilities.

The Women issues have received …

7 Reasons Why You Should Migrate To Singapore

Are you considering migrating to other parts of the world to start a new chapter of your life?

Are you moving so as to look for a job? Or do you yearn to experience a different culture?

If you were looking for a decent job as well as a place where you can live comfortably, then I would recommend you “Singapore”.

In a survey conducted recently, Singapore was picked as the best city in the world for Asian expatriates to live in. Beating Japan, Shanghai and even Hong Kong.

There are many reasons for choosing to work and live in Singapore, but basically there are 7. They are:

Strong Law Enforcements –

You never get to see protests, strikes and riots in the streets of Singapore. This is the result of the strict law enforcement by the police. Anybody caught involved in any of the above events, will be jailed and fined.

Currently, death penalty still exists in Singapore. Anybody caught drug trafficking, or committed murder or kidnap would be sentenced to death.

Another benefit of living in Singapore is it is quite safe to walk alone in the streets. Though crimes do occur, the rates are relative lower than that in other countries.

The locals joke that anybody who committed a crime has nowhere to run but jump into the sea (this is because Singapore is surrounded by sea). Another joke is that before the robber can escape, the police have arrived (Singapore is so small).

Climate –

What makes Singapore so attractive to live in is its peaceful environment. There are no natural disasters, such as earthquakes, typhoons, tornadoes and winter coldness. All you have is either rain or shine. But the air-conditioning is extremely powerful. You could say it’s winter indoor.

Networking –

Making use of the geographical location of Singapore, many big and small organisations set up bases here to have access to other parts of Asia and Middle East.

It is being used as a “Gateway”.

Even companies from China are setting up offices here to access markets in U.S.A and Europe. They are doing so partly to gain from the Free Trade Agreements signed between these countries and Singapore.

Even foreign workers are using this small country as a stepping stone to gain work experiences and improve their English so that they can move on to other developed countries such as U.S.A., Europe and Australia.

Since almost everybody is coming here, it has become the place for networking for both businesses and jobseekers.

Lenient Immigration Rules –

Do you know that Singapore is one of the countries that have the least strict immigration rules?

Anybody can come to Singapore as long as he/she obtains the necessary passes or documents.

Transport –

You can travel from one end of Singapore to the other end within an hour!

The transport system here covers the whole country and you don’t have to own a car to travel.

Public transport includes the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) trains, buses …

Importance of Bankruptcy Laws

Bankruptcy laws have been introduced to provide some relief to debtors. Generally, people fall in debt trap knowingly or unknowingly, but it does not mean that they have no right to live freely. If debtors are unable to repay the amount of debts towards creditors, then they can file bankruptcy. Financial experts consider bankruptcy as a last option to eliminate the debts completely. There are many other options available in UK market too like debt management, IVA, debt consolidation loans etc. According to a common law, bankruptcy involves the liquidation of assets. It means when an individual becomes bankrupt then court sells the property of debtor to recover the amount of creditors. It does not mean that all assets will be sold out. Few assets or properties can be exempted from the liquidation depending upon the type of bankruptcy you filed.

There are many bankruptcy laws exist in UK market. Debtors are free to choose any type as per the requirement, debt amount and kind of debt. There are few important chapters in it like bankruptcy chapter 7, chapter 11 and chapter 13. Bankruptcy chapter 7 contains the liquidation of assets. Chapter 11 is available only for companies, organization, partnership firm, industries etc. Under chapter 13, courts allow debtor to repay the debts with low interest rate. It is advisable to hire a best bankruptcy attorney, lawyer or experts. These people are professionals and can help you in worse situation as well. Individual should file bankruptcy petition with the help of attorney because they know what to write and how to write in document.

Bankruptcy petition is document through which you file bankruptcy and let the court know that you are unable to repay the existing debts. According to bankruptcy laws, after filling bankruptcy, creditors are not allowed to contact you for repayments. Court issues notice to all creditors and ask them not to contact debtor unless the case is over. Now days, bankruptcy courts concentrate on creditors as well and try to provide them some relief from loss.…

Bureaucracy – The Demon Controlling Our Lives

What is bureaucracy?

Bureaucracy is the administration of a set of rules that are used to run an organization or a government. The more rules that are created, the more people are needed to administer them, and the more complex the organization becomes. The administrators who create the rules are themselves part of the bureaucracy. In the case of government, the rules created are called laws. As a result of the proliferation of all sorts of requirements and laws in today’s society, life is becoming increasingly complex. Here are just some of the ways that bureaucracy affects us in everyday life.

Bureaucracy makes it hard to get a job.

These days to qualify for certain jobs one needs degrees, certifications, licenses, good references. Your background, credit history, medical records will be investigated. Even janitorial jobs require resumes. Besides all these requirements, many large companies are looking for someone who knows “everything” in his or her field in addition to being a “self-starter with excellent communications skills.” Most human resource departments don’t realize that the world is full of people and not “gods.” The successful candidate usually turns out to be a “friend” of a company bureaucrat or someone who is highly skillful at lying.

Bureaucracy makes it harder to do your job.

You may have been hired to do one thing, but in a bureaucratic system, “corporate” finds a lot of extra things to do to provide you with the additional skills or motivation they believe you need. There are those morning meetings, where everyone must get up and cheer the praises of the company and listen to endless discussions about the “bottom line.” Then there are the dozens of daily emails from “corporate” that require your immediate attention.

Everyone is being constantly rated, teachers are rated by students, sales associates are rated by customers, products like movies, books and articles are rated by the “stars” they receive from the public. It’s quite easy to get bad ratings if you’re a teacher who doesn’t entertain the students enough, or if you’re a salesperson who’s too technical for a customer, or if you’re a writer, writing about an unpopular subject.

Performance ratings also come from your supervisors. You get bad ratings when you fail to meet assigned quotas or other company requirements. These ratings can affect your salary and even be an excuse for your dismissal.

Bureaucracy makes life more complicated.

In the sixties, it took less than a half hour to purchase a car and drive off, now it takes close to a workday needed to fill out the paperwork before you can take possession of your auto. In the sixties you were able to afford to pay cash, now most cars are bought on credit. The credit checks and added government regulations make the purchase a much more complex procedure. It is also is more complicated and costly to own a car. There are all the licensing fees, the insurance, the air quality tests. Any small driving mistake can …

How to Use Printable Fake Money to Manifest Money With The Law of Attraction

When learning how to use printable fake money to manifest money with the Law of Attraction, it is important to learn a few “tricks of the printable play money trade.” This article reveals five tips to use when beginning to learn how to manifest money with the specific “prop” of pretend printable money.

Tip 1: An unusual “rule” when deciding to use printable fake money is to decide not to tell anyone what you’re doing. Why is this so important? Because by giving away your “secret,” you’re doing two things; i.e., 1) Setting yourself up to feel silly that you’ve told someone what you’re doing and having them “laugh at you” instead of supporting you, and 2) Giving them ammunition to shoot you down and discourage your holding and playing with printable play money because they think they know more about the subject than you. This gives your subconscious ammunition to fight you when you’re holding the printable money and doing your wealth affirmations and should be avoided.

Tip 2: When creating money using printable fake money in this fashion, you want to set a small goal and stay committed to seeing it through the learning curve. To do this, create a corresponding wealth affirmation that is completely believable and say it when you look at or hold the pretend printable money. When your subconscious mind wants to fight you and say, “That’s not going to happen,” focus on your commitment to seeing this through the “learning curve” of getting accustomed to combining your wealth affirmations with the printable play money and learning how to manifest money with the Law of Attraction. It might take awhile to get everything “jellied” and going in the same direction, but staying committed to it and acknowledging that there is a learning curve will help you see it through to realizing your goal.

Tip 3: Find some printable money worksheets that not only look real, but give you exercises to do in connection with using these printable money worksheets with your money affirmations and other instructions on how to attract money using the Law of Attraction. This is important because using printable fake money all by itself can work, but works much better and faster when you have more of a “program” that goes around the use of the money printable worksheets.

Tip 4: One key in learning how to attract money with printable fake money is to do it in incremental steps and to make your “wad of cash” believable. Holding a “fat wad of cash” and doing money affirmations to “win the lottery,” still won’t work because your subconscious mind will fight the enormity of the goal. Instead, take a small amount of pretend printable money and place it in view often, so your subconscious mind will “acclimate to having money around.” Does this work? Yes, but it’s important to make sure the money is placed in strategic places and coincides with an appropriate money affirmation.

Tip 5: A critical factor in …

How to Deal With an Overprotective Mother-In-Law

To many individuals, marriage is a life-long relationship. It starts when a man and a woman decide to live together as man and wife. Normally, there is a little ceremony during such a moment, where a number of friends and family members come to witness the start of the marriage. However, even without such a ceremony, when a couple decides to get married, they are recognized as husband and wife. It is soon after marriage when many couples start to face challenges such as how to deal with an overprotective mother-in-law. This happens when a female parent of the married couple becomes too protective to her ‘child.’

To some parents, it is quite simple to let children go and have their own families when they become adults. However, to some individuals, it is not that simple. Some parents refuse to admit their children have grown up and got married. They want to stay close to them to ensure their spouses are treating them right.

Although both male and female can be overprotective to their married children, the case is more prevalent in female. They are the so called mother-in-law. It does not matter whether it is their son or daughter who is married; they always want to be protective. At times they are protective for genuine reasons while at other times they are guided by selfish motives. Nevertheless, there are a number of things you can do to ensure to keep such parents from wrecking havoc to your marriage, in case you are married to their son or daughter. Below are some tips on how to deal with an overprotective mother-in-law.

1. Institute a base of trust between her and you. Give her reasons to trust you and believe you are capable of taking good care of her son or daughter without being pushed to do it.

2. Establish communication channels with her. This way, you will learn why she is so protective. Probably you are not the problem. Rather, she might be the problem and is only overacting because she feels you are taking her son or daughter away from her.

3. Avoid being too possessive of your spouse. This way, the mother-in-law might drop her militant attitude and stop being overprotective to her son or daughter.

4. Cultivate friendship with your mother-in-law. By so doing, she might cease seeing you as a threat and start considering you as a friend.

5. Get people you trust and who she respects to discuss with her how you feel about her attitude and over protectiveness.

6. Do not attempt to stand between her and your spouse. Doing that would make her more protective, since she will feel you are trying to rob her of your spouse’s affection.…

USING THE LAW OF ATTRACTION FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Lately, there has been a lot of hype around the law of attraction. However, this is not a new concept. People have been using this technique to manifest things into their lives since the beginning of time. It’s been referred to as several different things, such as “Creative Visualizations,” “Guided Mediations,” “Movies of the Mind,” or “The Power of the Unconscious Mind.”

The Law of Attraction is most easily described as “like attracts like,” this is easy enough to understand. The principal of the Law of Attraction states that when you have either a positive or a negative thought pattern, you receive either a positive or negative result. Everything that happens is a direct result of your thoughts. Thus, a positive attitude will bring more positive occurrences into your life and a negative attitude will bring more negative occurrences into your life.

Using these Step by Step instructions, you can utilize the powerful law of attraction to help you lose weight, lose cellulite, tone your body, add muscle, and shape your body into something that you are more comfortable in.

Step One: Create Your Ideal Weight

Write down your ideal weight on a piece of paper. Now close your eyes and imagine that you are stepping on the scale and it says that you are at that weight. Now, in your mind’s eye look down at your body and see what it looks like at that weight. Imagine touching your body and feeling what it would feel like at that weight. Imagine what you feel like in that body. Notice your emotions, your thoughts, your feelings. Now imagine that you are going through your daily routine at this weight. Notice what the food on your plate looks like, notice how much (or how little) food you become satisfied with. See yourself out exercising, feeling strong and feeling …

Skating and the Newton’s Laws

Physics is what drives the skates, be it the traditional roller skates or the new age inline skates. The world is all about science. And when it comes to talking about the science behind working of things, it is physics bang on.

Newton’s law of motion are comprised of three basic laws. Instead of going from laws 1 to 3, let us go in the order of how the skater begins skating and finally stops. This way the understanding of underlying laws becomes easy.

Starting the skating process

The skater begins the process of skating by pushing the toes and heels on the ground, opposite to the direction in which he/she wants to move. Here the energy from the muscles (potential energy) is transferred to the wheels (kinetic energy) of the skates. The skater moves because, the ground exerts an equal and opposite force to the wheels, thereby making it spin.

This is governed by Newton’s third law of motion which states that, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. The action here was to push the ground with the skates and the equal and opposite reaction was to push the skater forward.

While this happens, the wheels spin because of a torque which is produced by friction from the ground. This friction is called static friction. This force causes one surface to slide over the other. It happens so that when the roller blades move forward, the surface of Earth moves backwards to let the skater move. Sounds bizarre?! Well, the Earth is so huge that you hardly notice that it is going few millimetres to the other side!

Repeating the process to gain speed

To go on this entire process is repeated over and over again to gain speed. This is governed by Newton’s second law which states, “The rate of change of momentum is proportional to the imposed force and goes in the direction of the force”. It means if you push twice as hard, the acceleration is going to be twice as much.

It also indicates that if you push the other way, you will decelerate, that is, reduce your speed. It also suggests that heavier the body (or the person), more force is required to accelerate. Hence, lighter the person, faster is the acceleration going to be.

Gliding with momentum

After a while the skater will start gliding or coasting. This occurs solely based on momentum gathered from the high speed gained earlier.

Newton’s first law of motions states this as, “A body remains at rest or in motion with a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force”. That is, the skater will continue to coast unless he/she stops by applying brakes or he/she bumps onto someone or falls and trips due to loss of balance.

This is how physics and skating are related by Newton’s laws of motion. Next time you skate, experience it from physic’s eyes.…

Islam: The Elephant in America’s Kitchen

There is an elephant in America’s kitchen, and it’s growing every day. It’s hard to understand why people keep feeding it. Our government leader’s feed it, our church leaders feed it and the news media, well, they force feed it. The elephant even has a name. Islam.

Islam’s actions are obvious and often, and very destructive to America’s ability to move around its kitchen. In Dearborn, Michigan, known these days as Dearbornastan, a Muslim man has filed suit against Little Caesar’s Pizza. A $100 million dollar suit by the way. Little Caesar’s sin? They delivered a pizza with pepperoni allegedly containing pork, a no-no for Sharia Law adherents. Sharia Law? Yep, this Muslim man is offended. The elephant eats.

Moving from Dearborn, we go east to New York City where a 21-year-old Queens College student, a Pakistani Muslim, called police with a harrowing tale of abduction and a hate crime; they were calling him a racist name and all while branding guns. A terrible experience for anyone. Except, when the NYPD started investigating they discovered it was all a hoax. The student made it all up. The elephant has a snack.

One borough over in Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Tech High School, has a prom coming up. And again, the elephant is hungry. The Muslim students demand concessions. Prom is going to fall during Ramadan, and the Muslims will be fasting. We should note here that there are no concessions for Jewish or Christian students. But, after a meeting the Muslim Student Association, yes, there is one, the Principal agreed they would never again have Prom during Ramadan, and they will not serve food to anyone at the Prom until after 9 PM when the Muslim Fast is over. The elephant scraps up another few bites of America’s freedoms.

Let’s move south to Jacksonville, Florida as many New Yorkers do. Daniel Pipes, writing in the National Review, he cites a plaque he saw in the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens. He said he rubbed his eyes in disbelief as he read a plaque on an Islamic exhibit, celebrating the culture of the Ottoman Empire when it took over a renowned church in Istanbul. It read, “In addition to their renowned patronage of architecture, which yielded the conversion of the Church of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul into a congregational mosque… ” It struck Pipes as obscene. Was it the truth?

The Museum’s statement is far from the truth. The elephant was hungry again. As the Ottomans approached Pipes wrote the church was still thronged. The Holy Liturgy was ended, and the service of matins was being sung. At the sound of the tumult outside the huge bronze gates of the building were closed. Inside the congregation prayed for the miracle that alone could save them. They prayed in vain. It was not long before the doors were battered down. The worshippers were trapped. A few of the ancient and infirm were killed on the spot, but most of them were tied …
