Population of Tamilnadu-child population


Population of Tamilnadu in 2011 of 72.1 million accounts for about 5.9% of India’s population of 1210 million. Tamilnadu is the 7th largest state in the country behind UP, Bihar, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh,Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. However, the population of children of Tamilnadu of 0-6 years, is only 6.89 million which works out to only 4.3% of the total child population of 158.7 million. It ranks 9th largest behind Rajasthan, UP, Bihar, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. In the normal course, Tamilnadu’s population in India’s population would also in future come to around 4.4%. But this level of population will not be able to maintain the fairly large industry, agriculture and service sector in the state. There will naturally be migration from densly populated states like Bihar, UP, West Bengal and low income states like Orissa. To sustain the industry, agriculture and service sector development, the state should devise ways and means to permanently absorb the population from other states by creating necessary conditions like extending education in mother tongue to the migrant children, providing all facilities and concessions to them as are being given to local population like free rations, clothing, house sites, houses etc.

Working days and holidays.


India is a land of diversity. There are several regions,religions, races, languages, festivals,customs etc. The central and state governments have fixed the number of holidays in a year at less than 20 whereas in every region, there are more than 40 important festivals- religious as well as secular festivals. The government restricting holidays in a year prevents people from observing and celebrating some of the important festivals. It is essential for people not to deviate from traditions. Therefore the governments should declare holidays for all the festivals. As it is also important not to ignore work, the government should cancel holidays on certain saturdays and sundays. There is nothing wrong if offices, factories, business establishments etc. work on a few sundays and a few saturdays. Thus the number of working days in a year would remain unaltered. Of course, it is better, if the number of working days is increased so that the country develops faster with higher production,coming from longer working time.

Parliamentary proceedings and corruption


No political party in India can claim that all its members and leaders are honest. After all the society from which they come from is not honest fully. The general complaint is that many of the voters vote after taking money from political parties. There are honest people but many of them may not remain honest if they get opportunity to be corrupt. In this context, a political party should not accuse other parties of being corrupt. Disrupting parliamentsary proceedings on issues of corruption etc. is therefore unacceptable. A party should not disrupt,just because another party did so earlier. Matters relating to individual ministers should also not take much time of the Parliament as there are much more important matters relating to development on which time should be spent.

Corruption cannot be eliminated by any government without changing the rules and procedures which allow scope for corruption. Asking from applicants for servoces.too many documents and proofs should be minimised. People should in general be trusted unless there is reasons for doubts. Applicants should not be called to offices for seeking clarifications/explanations. The applicants and officers should exchange communications through email, mails etc.

Jury system in India


Some countries like US, Canada UK etc.have jury system. In India also the jury system existed though the Constitution does not provide for the same. The jury system in India was later abolished.

A Judge like any other human being may have his/her own values, beliefs, views, opinions etc. and it may not always be easy to keep these apart while judging a case. The accused should have protection from the operation of such personal beliefs etc. If every case is to be decided by a bench, the personal beliefs etc. of one Judge alone cannot do any harm but it may not always be possible to have two or more judges to decide every case. In this context, it is thought that the jury system may protect the accused from the personal beliefs etc of a Judge. There are possibilities for juries making wrong decisions but safeguards against the juries going wrong can be provided in the mode of selection and composition of juries.

Jury system also provides for people’s participation in the judiciary which is also welcome.

Healthy relations between Employees and Employers


The employees expect the employers to take interest in their welfare- provide tea,snacks, bonus, leisure activities like games, sports etc, assitance for children’s education, medical facilities etc. This is good. In turn, the employees also should take interest in the well being of employeers by achieving higher output, lower costs, higher profitabiity etc. Apart from putting up demands, the employees should discuss among themselves how to improve the working of the organisation/enterprise. For example,one employee from each branch of a bank in the state can meet periodically; exchange their experiences, discuss on ways to improve the working, improve the services to the customers, etc. The conference should be funded by the bank(employer/management). Both the employers and the employees should realize that they need each other. If employees contribute to the higher profits of the employer, the employer can expand his company and this will provide better opportunities for promotion /higher salary of the employees.

If employees put in their best efforts for the maximum profit of the company, the company in turn can take care of employment of the wards of the employees subject to availability of vacancies and the suitability of the wards for the jobs.
