New Education Policy: Advantages and Disadvantages

photo

The new education policy announced today is trying to gear up for the changed education reality by extending flexibility, graded levels of autonomy and trying to increase the level of knowledge application along with a broader skillset. One major aspect to look out for will be how this policy is implemented.



The new policy aims for universalisation of education from pre-school to secondary level with 100 per cent Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) in school education by 2030 and aims to raise GER in higher education to 50 per cent by 2025.




  • NEP 2020 will bring two crore out of school children back into the main stream.

  • NCERT will develop a National Curricular and Pedagogical Framework for Early Childhood Care and Education (NCPFECCE) for children up to the age of eight.

The Birds have landed safely in Ambala

photo

A batch of five Rafale fighter jets touched down to a special water cannon salute at the Ambala air base this afternoon, the first western combat aircraft to join the Indian Air Force 23 years after Sukhoi aircraft were imported. The French-manufactured Rafale multi-role combat jets covered a distance of nearly 7,000 km and were escorted by two Sukhoi 30 MKIs after they entered the Indian air space. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted that the "birds" had landed safely in Ambala.



"Welcome home 'Golden Arrows'. Blue skies always," the Indian Air Force tweeted with a photo of the Rafales in the "Arrow formation".



This is the first batch from a contingent of 36 Rafale jets from French aerospace major Dassault Aviation as part of a Rs 59,000-crore deal signed by the government on September 23, 2016. The planes are expected to give a mega-boost to In... Read More

Changes after Covid 19 !!

photo

Firstly, Covid has given a huge lift to online learning both in the metros and non-metros. Online education, for instance, has got a major boost. Educational institutions, business organisations among others, have taken online education to a new level by offering classes, coaching and courses in an innovative way to keep their audience hooked at these times of lockdown. In India, students and professionals are signing up for online classes- from entrance exams. 



Secondly, we have become more hygiene conscious. Yes, you heard it right. People have started taking personal hygiene more seriously. The ritual of washing hands, sanitizing things before use, that started as a compulsion is becoming a habit. According to IANS C-VOTER Gallup International Association Corona.



Work from Home (WFH) is the third major change that has become a part of our lives. Well, honestly speaking it was never a new concept. M... Read More

How life will change after this Pandemic

photo

A return to how life was at the start of 2020 is some way off. Even when lockdown restrictions are eased, coronavirus will affect our lives in many ways. What will struggle to get back to how it was before, and what might change for ever?



From Zooming clients to neighbourhood WhatsApp groups, digital platforms have become the only way for many of us to work, get fit or be educated and entertained. 



We're more relaxed about screen time hours for us and our kids, a huge culture shift from just a few weeks ago. It feels unlikely that'll disappear overnight. 



But key to a recovery will be job creation and keeping down living costs. The former means that, however uneasy, governments may have to tolerate China's continued investment around the globe. 



As for the latter, businesses need to keep costs low, and overseas sourc... Read More

How this Pandemic may change work culture

photo

As countries begin loosening restrictions and easing lockdowns, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) released guidelines to allow private offices in India to operate at 100 per cent capacity, but urged people to work from home as much as possible.



Not just India, several countries have released norms for employees. In New Zealand, for instance, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has said that those businesses in the “position to do so” should consider a four-day workweek in order to boost domestic tourism.



Some private companies too have initiated steps to change their work culture in order to adapt to the pandemic. Tech giant Twitter, for example, was among the first global companies to allow employees to work from home. In a blog post publis... Read More

How Fashion World was Revolutionized: New Look

photo

 



Only two years after the end of World War II, the French couturier presented a collection that symbolized not only a departure from previous styles, but the beginning of a new society. 



After the war period of utilitarian attires and vestiary austerity, perhaps nothing felt newer than Dior's vision. His first collection rejected the modern course of dressing established in the 1920s and 30s, which intended to liberate women from the restrictive sculptural volumes and corsets of early 20th-century fashion. Instead, he presented an image of radical femininity, achieved by tight-fitting jackets with padded hips, petite waists, and A-line skirts.



Dior became the new star of the Parisian haute couture scene and almost instantly transformed the wardrobe of the contemporary woman. The "New Look," the name by which Dior's style eventually went dow... Read More

Know Your Wear: The History of Denim

photo

Denim is a fabric that is used in clothing all over the world such as jeans, jackets, and shirts. However, the history of denim is rich and varied and dates back further than you might realize. However, the actual history of denim is shrouded in mystery. Not many people know the true history of this fabric and how it came to be in the form that we know today. 



WHERE DID DENIM COME FROM ?



Denim fabric has its origins in France. This nation, as you may know, is considered to be one of the fashion capitals of the world, so it’s no surprise that one of the most significant clothing trends of the past century came from there.



Initially, denim began life as a fabric known as "serge de Nimes." As keen-eyed readers will notice, ‘de Nimes’ bears a resemblance to denim, which is what this fabr... Read More

Downfall of Leather Exports

photo

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...

photo

CSIR constituent lab CSIR-Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) Lucknow has received permission for carrying out Phase III trial of antiviral drug Umifenovir, Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said on Friday. Umifenovir is mainly used for the treatment of influenza and is available in China and Russia, and has recently come into prominence due to its potential use for COVID-19 patients.



 



Why Umifenovir ??



•The drug has a good safety profile and acts by preventing entry of viruses into human cells and also by priming the immune system.



•All the raw materials for the drug are indigenously available and if the clinical trial is successful, Umifenovir can be a safe, efficacious, affordable drug against COVID-19. The drug has the potential for prophylactic use.

What does Lord Jagannath Actually Wants ?

photo

“The Chief Justice said that Lord Jagannath won’t forgive us if we allow this year’s Rath Yatra to go on.” I agree to this. Ratha Yatra, every year around 10 to 12 Lakhs of devotees thronged the coastal town of Puri to catch the glimpse of deities re-embodied after 19 years on chariots on the occasion of Rath Yatra, marking largest-ever religious congregation in Odisha.



 



Yes, lakhs of devotees. And it’s impossible to maintain social distancing when there are lakhs of people. In the court order, the “CJI observed that the rath yatra normally draws a crowd of 10-13 lakh and continues for a period of 10-15 days.” The court said such a large gathering raises public health and safety concerns during a pandemic. And it’s right for them to be concerned, it will drastically increase the number of cases of positive patients. Even ... Read More
