It covers every aspect of handling autism
Spreading the word:Volunteers of the ‘I Support Foundation’ at the ‘chai pe charcha’ in BTM Layout, Bengaluru.
Growing up in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh, sisters Juhi and Bobby Ramani had to surmount many hurdles with an autistic brother. That was in the late 1990s, when there was a drought in resources and awareness of autism. Today, at 20, Shivam is an autistic adult, and the sisters are IT professionals who used their expertise along with two dozen of their ilk to launch an app called ‘Autism Care’ last November.
I am fortunate to have a small, reassuring family consisting of my wife, children ,children-in-law ,and grandchildren , and a big extended family comprising my former students of social work , many of whom keep in touch with me regularly or occasionally. Some of my former students have been asking me to write my experiences as a social work professional. I am touched by their warmth and I am planning to look back in time.

Most of the corporate business houses who are in to 'Corporate Social Responsibility'[C S R], are undertaking this more by compulsion than by conviction. Their interests rest mainly on expansion and profit in any venture. Any money spent should return with profits only. Philanthropy did say that a portion of your earnings be set aside for the welfare of the society. But who cares. Now even Gods are programmed to bless one self. Charity doesn't give them profits, but definitely it gives name and recognition in the society, which no story of any advertisement company can give. An advertisement spot can at best put the company on top of the world, but only till an another advertisement steals its glory. And invariably it happens through its competitor. But charity for the welfare of the society holds company high. This is not to emotionalize the subject or an 'advertisement for charity'
The United Nations anticipates 8 billion people by 2025, 9 billion by 2043 and 10 billion by 2083
This week, the United Nations estimates, the world's population will reach seven billion. Because censuses are frequent and incomplete, no one knows the precise data. The US Census Bureau puts it somewhere next March-but there can be no doubt that humanity is approaching a milestone.
The first billion people accumulated over a leisurely interval, from the origins of humans hundreds of thousands of year ago to the early 1800s. Adding the second took another 120 or so years. Then, in the last 50 years, humanity more than doubled, surging from three billion in 1959 to four billion in1974, five billion in 1987 and six billion in 1998. This rate of population increase has no historical precedent.
(an unfinished task of Mahatma Gandhi and a step towards national integration placed before, endorsed and accepted by THE NATIONAL CONSULTATIVE CONVENTION held at the National Institute of Education, Pune (Maharashtra) on 5th and 6th March 2011)
The evil of untouchability which is a standing shame and a blot on Hindu society and on India as a nation, has existed for ages and will certainly continue to exist during the coming ages unless determined, persistent, meaningful and effective efforts are made to eradicate it and absorb dalits into Hindu society on equal terms with all other Hindus at least in the foreseeable future. Mahatma Gandhi strived hard all his life in India and carried on a campaign for removing this evil system. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, the unrelenting champion of the cause of dalits and other downtrodden people strived in his own way towards this end, and finally, because this could not be achieved during his life time, preferred not to die as a Hindu. He had hopes that the dalits would be fully integrated into Hindu society before long and hence, in the Constitution of India of which he was the chief architect, he set for this task a time limit of ten years and hence, while untouchability was legally abolished in the Constitution, he got the privileges of reservation of economic and other benefits, political and other opportunities for Scheduled Castes restricted to 10 years. But, since the evil persists, these reservations have become a continuing phenomenon with no end to untouchability and the woes of dalits in sight.

Non- governmental organizations are playing imperative role in the empowerment of women. They adopt multiple strategies to improve the condition of the women. Non -governmental organizations are training women in various aspects to make them to come out of their inhibitions and to involve in fruitful activity. Non -governmental organizations have come to occupy an important place in India. Non Governmental organizations are legally constituted organizations created by private organizations or people with no participation or representation of any government. They render help to government and society for the improvement of quality of life of people and also animals from education to health, environment and poverty alleviation. The scope of NGOs operational areas touches every walk of life (Patel, Dubey, 2010). The spread NGO activities in the country, as in many other parts of the world, are manifested in a number of spheres and in a wide spectrum of programmes. In welfare programmes, development oriented activities, empowering women and weaker sections, protecting the rights of marginalized segments, protecting the environment, spreading literacy and education to name a few, the contribution of NGO sector is impressive since independence. According to one estimate, there are one million NGOs in the country (Jain, 1997). However, the growth has not been geographically uniform in different parts of the country (Dhilon and Hansra 1995, Gangrade, 1987, GOI, 1985). It is difficult to say any association between the number of voluntary organizations and the size of the population. Highly populated states like Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, for instance, have a very weak presence of voluntary organizations (Gangrade, 1987). Some states, like Maharashtra, West Bengal, Gujarat, and Kerala are ahead of others in the number of organizations (Chowdhry, 1971).
On health issues,
India ranks among
the worst nations in
the world for its child
One more November 14 has come and gone. We have celebrated children's Day in India. But we dare not celebrate the status of the Indian child. That would again expose our hypocrisy and dual standards. Every year, on this significant day, we renew our promises to the child. We have been observing this day since 1947 with the appropriate speeches and pledges to save the country's youngest citizens. We have given them all the rights enshrined in our constitution. The right to food. The right to security. The right to education. The right to health care. But, alas, we failed to give them the right to enjoy these benefits tangibly.
