Let us talk about SEX: Moving Beyond Birds and Bees



Sexual Education, or as we like to address it with its PG euphemism, Family Life Education, is far from being accepted as a necessary component of education.



Sex education is high quality teaching and learning about a broad variety of topics related to sex and sexuality, exploring values and beliefs about those topics and gaining the skills that are needed to navigate relationships and manage one’s own sexual health. Sex education may take place in schools, in community settings, or online. Planned Parenthood believes that parents play a critical and central role in providing sex education.



In a country that reports high rates of teenage pregnancies and sexual abuse, one would think that the need for a curriculum focu... Read More

2020: A repeat of 2008?




With huge economic strain given the impact of pandemic, it's time we question the leaders, the economists on whether it's a repeat of the history of the great recession of 2008?




A decade after the Great Recession of 2008, the global economy indicates the resurgence of economic complacency and unpredictability of markets as we dwell within close proximity of yet another global economic crisis.

CYBERBULLYING



The humanitarian crisis has cultivated a ‘New Normal’ vitality for all of us. Ranging from quarantine greenhouse dates to online classes and good-byes, we all have harmonized to the culture. Technology played an integral role in maintaining the continuity as it brought new dimensions to the responsibilities of educators and mentors. 

But we need self-introspection to rethink the ethical use of technology. If Zoom is that easy to hack into, it’s likely to expect kids and teens trying to follow suit. The era where gadgets are the ‘toys’ for the kids plus the ‘Lockdown’ has increased the fear of ‘Cyberbullying.

In 2018-19, exports of the Indian leather industry amounted to $5.69 billion, but the uncertainty over Covid-19 is expected to have led to a sharp decline in the business. Our exports stood at $5.69 billion last year. Estimates show that we have so far achieved around $4.34 billion this fiscal and we need to catch up with another $1.4 billion to touch last year’s numbers. We are awaiting final numbers for this fiscal to figure out actual exports.



 



South India accounts for nearly one-third of the leather manufacturing units. The predominance of the south in the industry also stems from the fact that the Council for Leather Exports, the industry body for leather, is based in Chennai. Within south India, Tamil Nadu plays a significant role with the Ranipet-Visharam-Vellore-Ambur- Vaniyambadi belt on the Chennai- Bengaluru National Highway being a hub for the industry and as an employment optio...
