SOCIAL MEDIA EFFECTING HUMAN LIFE NEGATIVELY..

Social Media is effecting human life in many aspects like health,family relations, etc. So,I'll be discussing each aspect in detail below. Firstly, I would like to describe or define what is a social media,many of them may be know that,but I would just like to mention that. WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA? Social Media is a platform,computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas,thoughts and information through the building of virtual networks and communities.  Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers. The power of social media is the ability to connect and share information with anyone on Earth, or with many people simultaneously. There are different types of social media namely, Social networks,Social news, Microblogging ,Bookmarking sites,Media sharing,Community blogs,social review sites,video hosting sites,Image shar

The Social Stock Exchange

                                            The Social Stock Exchange: Future-Proofing Capital Markets ...

The Finance Ministry was thinking upon the idea of a social stock exchange and gave a hint about the same in the 2019 budget. SEBI constituted a panel for it and the panel recently gave its recommendations regarding the exchange. Some of the recommendations are as follows:
  • Direct listing of non-profit organisations through the issuance of bonds and a range of funding mechanisms in a report submitted to the market.
  • The social stock exchanges can he housed within the existing stock exchange and such as BSE and/or NSE. This will help the SSE leverage the existing infrastructure and client relationships of the exchanges to onboard investors, donors, and social enterprises (for-profit and non-profit).
  • The profit social enterprises can also list on SSE with enhanced reporting requirement.
  •  To encourage, giving culture some tax incentives have also been suggested.
  • Fundraising instruments like equity and SVFs have been recommended for social profit enterprises and zero coupons zero principal bonds, SVFs, Mutual Funds (MFs), various pay-for-success structures, other securities for NPOs.
"These recommendations, if implemented as a package, can result in a vibrant and supportive ecosystem, enabling the non-profit sector to realise its full potential for creating social impact," the panel suggested in its 72 page long report.

Is it a new concept?
Well, it is not a new concept. It has been tried in some countries. There are various models of it, like in London it acts as a platform to connect social enterprises with potential investors. In Canada the platform is called SVX and it also allows retail investors to invest. The social investment exchange of Kenya helps welfare organisation to connect with domestic and foreign investors. The impact investment exchange in Singapore, in partnership with Mauritius, allows only accredited investors to participate. In South Africa, the SSE SASIX works like a regular stock exchange where impact investors can buy shares in social businesses based on location and mission.

SEBI has also asked for public comments on the same and they can be send to SEBI till 30th June. 
It is definitely going to help NGOs, if implemented.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people. For one, it is a sense of accomplishment, non- violence for another, salvation to a few and a lot more to others. But what peace exactly is? And how can we attain it? Peace is acceptance. A vision of seeing things and extracting optimism out of it. Peace makes life easier. To be satisfied is what peace is. To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
