1) Bring change in education system
I hate the education system in India because people do not teach to lead life but they just teach to get good marks, to join a good college, and get a good job. If students study for getting good marks, they will become like a parrot, not a successful person. However, marks are important but moreover, the concept is more important than marks. Here in our colleges, they only teach us how the colleges have appointed professional counselors due to which student suicides are still happening in the junior corporate colleges. The board should take strict action against these colleges for not following the norms. Mr. Gouri, the Honourary President of Telangana Private Junior Colleges management said that the board instructed the colleges to deploy counsellors and laid down many other norms but colleges are not following them. Extension lecturers should be arranged by inviting experts in the areas such as building self-confidence, coping with anxiety, failure, success, improve concentration, and the management should convene meeting at least once a month with the parents. They must take steps to reduce the excessive emphasis of the parents/students on Medical/Engineering courses only and inform the parents and students about various other career options available. The board insisted that the crowding of students should be avoided.

2) Indian politicians should learn from Israel
It refers to Congress President criticising policies of the present Indian government which according to him have disastrous after-effects like mob-lynching etc. It may be recalled that the Indian political rulers had also blamed previous regimes in India for their corrupt policies. The Indian politicians from both ruling and opposition parties must follow the ideal of small yet most successful Israel where it is a holy tradition that politicians from all sides are united on the aspects of security and foreign relations; despite that, the country being much more politically unstable from within.
There should be a set mechanism whereby complaints against erring Indian politicians both from ruling and opposition side may be lodged if they use platforms in other countries for attacking rival politicians. Such complaints can be lodged with collegium consisting of President, Vice President and Speaker of Lok Sabha where such collegium may be empowered to the extent of imposing a lifetime ban on contesting polls on erring politicians apart from snatching their membership of Parliament and state legislatures.

3) Congress should decide who is correct – Pandit Nehru or RaGa
Congress President Rahul Gandhi has once again attacked the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) by comparing it with Muslim Brotherhood, that too on a foreign land of London. But he forgets that none other than his great-grandfather Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India gave a unique honour to the very same RSS by making its volunteers participate in the Republic Day parade in the year 1963 as a mark of respect for the great work done by the RSS volunteers in 1962-war against China. It is not that RSS has thereafter changed itself to face criticism and attacks by Congress. It also remains a fact that Congress leaders since the independence of the country have been attacking the RSS when some of them even link the RSS with Gandhi-murder in the year 1948.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi in criticising and attacking RSS should be bold and fair enough to make the confession that his great-grandfather Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru made a big mistake by inviting the RSS to participate in Republic Day parade of the year 1963.

4) Government must assist Kerala
It is good to hear that the central government refused help offered by the UAE, but it is not enough because the government has to provide a proper assistance. All Kerala got from central government is just Rs 600 crore while the state suffered RS 2,600 crore damages in the worst flood in nearly a century. The government either accept the foreign assistance or it takes a step by itself to help the Kerala people. I request every Indian to take part to assist Kerala people so that we will not be compelled to take a donation from the foreign countries.

5) Nayar’s death is a great loss to Indian journalism
India lost a great journalist as Kuldeep Nayar passed away. He was a great journalist, syndicated columnist, human right activist, author, and former-High Commissioner of India to the United Kingdom. He was also nominated as a Member of the Upper House of Indian Parliament in 1997. However, Nayar was a peace-loving good human who wrote a lot about love and peace towards each other. He attracted the attention of thousands of readers by his splendid writings and columns. He always will be remembered in our good memories for his great contributions to the Indian journalism. May his soul rest in peace!

6) Catch them young
By picking teenage sensation Prithvi Shaw, the selectors have given the much-needed break in the International Cricket. Shaw’s stars are on the rise ever since he played for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy semi-finals as a 16-year-old prodigy in the 2016-17 season. Since then, he has played 14 first-class matches, scoring 1,418 runs including seven centuries and five fifties. Shaw aggregated 603 runs in 10 innings for India A in the recent English tour. Along with Shaw, consistent middle order batsmen Hanuma Vihari has also been included for the fourth and fifth Test. Catch them young is true to sports in general and Cricket in particular. Shaw is lucky to get an early break.

7) Fire safety in eateries
Despite all the precautionary measures, the eateries in malls and multiplexes skip fire safety norms and this may lead to major fires in places where public movement is more. Somehow, these eateries did float the norms and take advantage of the weak administration to make hay when the sun shines. Thus, the life of people going to the mall and multiplexes is under constant threat. More security measures should be followed in all places including shopping complexes to make sure that the safety of people is ensured from any type of fire mishaps during busy hours. The Kamala Mills fire opened up fire inspections and fire audit and the good work should continue for the benefit of people venturing out for entertainment.
