Let us fight

Yet another occasion where we the 1.21 billion people of India who celebrated India's recent World Cup victory, need to come together to fight corruption by joining hands with Anna Hazare.

Veteran Gandhian, Mr Anna Hazare, began a fast-unto-death in New Delhi today demanding enactment of a comprehensive Jan Lokpal Bill to check corruption.

What is more appealing is the movement gaining momentum day by day and the coming out of youth in a big way.

Hope the Government listens to the demands in drafting this bill.

Come be a part of it!

The latest census has brought out both good news and the bad.
Good news:
The thing to cherish is the Literacy rate. It reads 74% compared to 65% at the last census. Ten states and union territories have scored a rate of more than 85%.

The growth rate is 17.64% between 2001-2011 which represents the sharpest decline since independence.

Bad news:
The child sex ratio came as a biggest shock at 914 girls(0-6 years of age) for every 1000 boys. This is the lowest since independence. This is the matter of worry which needs complete overhauling.
