Does the Ghost of Reservation back again in India?

Yesterday, all India saw the news of protests by Patels in Gujarat for the reservation in Government jobs. During the day, we all witnessed the huge strength of Petal community which came to support their young leader Hardik Patel and at night widespread violence in different parts of Gujarat which results in curfew in various parts in Gujarat.

The demand for the reservation for Patel community is raised by the Aarakshan Andolan Samiti which is lead by Hardik Patel. Petal community accounts for the 12% population of the Gujarat and they are demanding for inclusion of Ptelals in OBC category which will open the way for 27% reservation for Patels.

The main problem in this protest is that Patels are among the economically and socially strong communities of Gujarat. Now, if the government allows reservation to them, then it will add fuel to the already burning demands of reservations by other communities. Already, many economically and socially strong communities in different parts of India are demanding reservation.

In the past too, the government of India has seen many violent protests by students and communities against and in the favor of reservation. Last protests for reservations in government jobs were by Gujjars in Rajasthan. During these protests, many common Indians suffered and some even lost their life.

Government jobs are very popular in India from British era, despite the availability of fewer jobs every year. Due to the long era of reservation, many people and communities believe that reservation is the only way to get these jobs. So, we are seeing an uptrend in demands for reservation by many people who actually belong to strong communities.

The main reason of increase in demand for the Reservation is increasing economcial difference in peoples of the same community. For example, Patel may be economically strong community of Gujarat; however, still there will be many economically weak people in this community who may need a reservation or looking for it.

The same situation exists in all communities of India, which are considered strong or economically well. At this level, Government of India and state governments need to solve this issue very wisely; otherwise, we can see a major increase in such protests from different parts of India.

In the past, Indian politicians have misused reservation for their political gain and this move has caused great harm to the country. We need to identify the problem well and then define a solution which is acceptable to all; otherwise, we should be ready for the next level of reservation war in India.

Importance of clean environment

Read in Hindi  It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions. People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems.

Some Easy methods to increase immunity during Covid (Coronavirus)

 At the start of the Corona Virus last year, I wrote this article that Is India ready for Corona Virus?  In this article, I discuss the options available in front of India to tackle the Corona Virus strain. Though India did well in dealing with the first strain of Corona Virus we failed on many fronts when we faced the second wave. It looked that we were not prepared for the stronger and deadly second wave of the Corona. We may blame the government or the bad healthcare system, however, there is also a problem in us. First, we don't follow the rules and second, many of us don't enjoy strong immunity to fight the Corona virus. By increasing our immunity, we can increase our chances of survival from the Coronavirus. There are some methods through which we can make our immune system strong. However, due to the fast lifestyle, we have stopped carrying about our bodies.  Step 1- Spend some time in the Sun - The problem with today's lifestyle is that we don't spend much time
