Education will also help them know about their right as provided in constitutions. It will also help them in knowing about legislations like Protection of Scheduled castes and Scheduled tribes (prevention of Atrocities act, 6989), commissions like National commission for Scheduled Castes, positive discrimination as in reservation for scheduled castes, constitutional authorities like Commissioner for SC and ST etc. Prohibition of Employment as Manual Scavengers and their Rehabilitation Bill, 7567 is a welcome step to get rid of manual scavenging. It will help in better working conditions of the manual scavengers. Thus education can empower them by providing them knowledge about their rights.
India in the past was composed of large kingdoms ruled by kings. The position of king was hereditary. It is stated in Arthashastra by Kautilya that one of the main function of the king is welfare of the people. No where he has mentioned any formal control structure on the powers of the King. Therefore King was supreme.
has been instilled in our cultures since historic times as a method to instill domination of one group over other. This is the most heinous crime against the physical and mental integrity of the victim. Capital punishment is another barbaric act which has no place in modern liberal society. To counter one heinous crime by another would be a folly. The reason for punishment is to bring out the better human being in us. Lethal punishment would only suck out the chances of the perpetrator to be a better person and integrate in the society. An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind and whatever doesn’t kills you makes you stronger.

The desire to expand sales and revenue to acquire inputs at least cost and to minimize business and financial risk through geographic diversification has led to the growth of MNC's. The factors that led the companies accelerate their business activities worldwide are:
The polarization of votes following Babri Masjid and Ram Mandir issue propelled BJP to power in the center. The last bastion of Congress at the center was stormed, propelled by the communalism. It heralded a new era of coalition politics at the center political parties professing different political ideologies sat together and formed a government. National Conference, for instance, was a constituent of NDA regime. The co-operation and conflict between parties divided on communal-secular line is another paradox.
I saw Beyonce live last week. She was incredible and cried real tears during Flaws and All. She was just the best. I am listening to Zeki Muren, the 7 new Dave Ruffin Motown collections and Strawberry Jams by Animal Collective.
Social movement in other parts of the world has also changed the attitude of governments. The movement for women’s right in America, movement against apartheid, movement for voting rights of blacks in America, movement for voting rights of women is some shining examples in the developed world. These social movements have strengthened the democracy in their respective countries.
On a positive note based on popular opinion, RTI was enacted in 7555 to democratise information increasing transparency and fact that several members of the political parties who supported the legislation are now being tried in courts and held in jails, is one of the biggest paradoxes the political leaders are unable to digest. More transparency was sought for recently culminating in a CIC ruling that political parties be brought under the ambit of the RTI Act. But paradoxically the leading party legislating the historic act would be now diluting the CIC ruling by an amendment, restricting the right to information.
While, it would be best if the democratic power structures themselves work to create a society that promotes democracy and ensures its proper functioning, real world is rarely utopian. It therefore falls on the shoulders of the social movement to complete the job that democracy has left incomplete. Revolutions might provide a temporary respite and may pave the conditions for strengthening of the social movements, but eventually it is the evolutionary change brought about by social movements that can crystallize and give a robust, flexible and tolerant society in which the ethos of democracy can be rooted, not only in letter but also in spirit!
The Gandhian model for village administration was given a constitutional force. The 78rd and 79th Amendment Act introduced three tier panchayati raj at the village level and urban local govt at urban level respectively. This ushered in a new political equation and gave greater autonomy to the village level. Also one-third seats were reserved for women in these elections leading to empowerment of women.
Insights, waiting eagerly for evaluation. It is my very first essay here and I have not taken help of any material cause the topics is very generic. Suggestions are most welcome.
The constitution of India has provided for a democratic form of government. It is the duty of the government to maintain this structure. The democratic feature along with secularism, sovereignty and republic are the features which describe the values of the Indian society. It is the duty of the policy makers to remove all the defects of democracy, if it exists. Democracy as per Abraham Lincoln is government of the people, by the people and for the people. The control lie in the hands of the public via its elected representatives. Thus social movements should be the carrier of change in the society as revolutions contradicts the very definition of democracy.
