19 June 2015

The largest Muslim Ghetto

  1. Mumbra, a suburb of Mumbai is a largest residential area for muslims and its population has increased over 9 lakhs since 1992 riots.
  2. Civic amenities, legal systems, discrimination are still prevalent here. It has a hostile relations with police and many times , suspected by police as a hideout for terrorists.
  3. In spite of all this, a hope towards upward mobility is visible, with coming of new generation and raised education levels.

Kurds and their fight against IS

 

  1. Kurdish fighters captured the Tal Abyad on Syria border from Islamic state. It disconnects the vital supply chain of IS.
  2. The Kurds are social liberals and are committed towards gender equality and secularism opposed to the IS barbarism and misogyny.
  3. The Kurdish fighters on Syrian border are the armed wing(people protection units) of Democratic union party. But, they are not getting the necessary support from other forces in fight.
  4. The major reason is turkey sees any strengthening of Kurds may strengthen Kurdistan workers party, which is seen as a terrorist org by turkey.
  5. Already, people democratic party won necessary 10% mandate and able to enter representative house in turkey.
  6. However, turkey has to realise that , IS is more dangerous and failure of states can aggravate the refugee crisis and makes its borders vulnerable. So, it is better to engage with secular Kurdish workers party, where peace dialogue is already going on.

 

Remembering a rock star

Nek Chand - rock garden

  1. It is a folklorist response to an urbanism
  2. He felt that junk, garbage, waste belonged to the language of materialism and that generating the waste as a culture was critical in understanding a society and how it worked

IIM amendment bill 2015

  1. The proposed IIM Bill 2015 proposes to grant statutory status to thirteen existing Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) at Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Indore, Kozhikode, Shillong, Raipur, Ranchi, Rohtak, Kashipur, Tiruchirapalli and Udaipur, and declare them as Institutions of National Importance, to enable them to grant degrees to their students in the academic courses conducted by these institutes.

 

  1.  Till now, these Institutions could award only certificate, Post Graduate Diploma and Fellow Programme in Management Certificate, which lacked universal acceptability in the field of academia and research. The Post-graduate Diploma in Management Programme was relatively unaffected by absence of a formal degree, both in terms of recruitment of students as well as suitable placements in job market.

 

  1.  The Fellow Programme in Management did not get the same status as that of a Ph.D. in the job market, especially in faculty appointments. As a result, the Fellow Programme in Management (equivalent to Ph.D), without the formal degree stamp, has not, been able to attract talented students, required to develop a strong research base in the country in the field of management education and also address the faculty shortages affecting the management institutions in the country. The proposed Bill will address this gap.
