...mportant. At some point of time family is important; at some point of time your job is more important; sometime your health is more important and similarly your society is equally important.
Because if any one of these falls out you are definitely going to be in trouble as an individual or as a community. So it is important to take out time for your society so that things work out as planned. If an engineer you don’t get a good enough job in your country it is certainly going to impact you and your family .So we should do something about it rather than just hoping someone would do something about it. I just want people takeout some time and do something like just sharing status on Facebook or standing outside the metro station campaigning even fighting elections it’s up to the motivation of the person. But they must do something about it otherwise nobody else will!

- Politics makes strange bed fellows. – Charles Dudley Warner. In a country like India, where there is almost always a coalition rule, it’s always difficult to implement a policy proposed by the government or suggestions given by a committee. The majority party in the coalition proposes something, the opposition opposes it. That’s standard procedure in every country. But we go a step further. The parties forming the coalition oppose it too, either because they fear falling out of favour with the public, or they simply want political gains in exchange for their support....

- Any Indian newspaper today, carries some news related to AAP or Aam Aadmi Party. For the past few months, it has been a major discussion topic more so for the people of Delhi, but nonetheless for the rest of India as well. So how has AAP successfully garnered so much attention. What does it bring to the table. Is it just about building a corrupt-free India. The answer is, certainly not.

In this age of globalization, it is becoming quite clear that no longer can the United States dictate world order.

- The Effects of British Imperialism in India One could approach this topic from two points of view; the British and the Indian. One could choose either party and find very different opinions. When British colonizers first arrived in India, they slowly gained more and more control in India through many ways, the most prominent being trade and commerce. At first, they managed India’s government by pulling the string behind the curtain. However, soon they had acquired complete rule over India, converting it into a true British colony....

Much of this resulted from the reorganization of the states on linguistic lines (as opposed to British colonial divisions). However, in the last six years, many major towns and cities have been renamed in ways that affect foreigners more. Among this flood of changes, three stand out. These are the former cities of Bombay, Madras, and Calcutta, which, together with Delhi, are considered the "mega cities" of India.1 They are the four most populous cities in India, and all but Madras are among the 15 most populous cities in the world.2 As a result, they are important commerc...

- Throughout Politics, Aristotle goes into detail about monarchies, aristocracies, and polities, as the ideal forms of government. Polity as defined by Aristotle is the virtuous form of a constitutional democracy (Aristotle viewed democracy without constitutional law as a poor form of government). It is essential to a state in which polity is the system of rule that there is a constitution in place to prevent the excesses of majority rule.
