Bhagat Singh : True Face of FEARLESSNESS

Bhagat Singh was a prominent freedom fighter of India. The courage with which Bhagat Singh fought the mighty British government for the independence of the country is a great role model for the youth of today. He also refused to run away by throwing a bomb in the Central Parliament (Central Assembly). As a result of which he was hanged on 23 March 1931 along with his two other companions, Rajguru and Sukhdev. The whole country remembered his sacrifice very seriously. First the Saunders-Slaughter in Lahore and then the Explosion of the Central Assembly in Delhi with Chandrashekhar Azad and other members of the Party gave rise to an open rebellion against the British Empire. Bhagat Singh was interested in anarchist and Marxist ideology. Early Life: Bhagat Singh was born on 27 September 1907. His father's name was Sardar Kishan Singh and mother's name was Vidyavati Kaur.

Brain Drain from the developing nations

With millions of people shifting from developing to developed nations in the past few decades in search of better opportunities, “Brain Drain” has become a serious issue. It is also known as “Human Capital Flight”. It is defined as a phenomenon when highly qualified and skilled individuals move to other countries for better jobs or educational opportunities. 

As a result of this migration of the people, the developed countries gain human capital known as “Brain Gain”. Human capital plays a crucial role in the economic development of any country. This benefits the already developed nations while the developing nations end up losing their skilled workforce

A huge number of Indians migrate to other nations every year. Research by the World Bank shows that more than 3% people worldwide reside in different countries rather than in the country of their birth. 

Students especially from the field of science, technology and research move to countries like the UK, USA, Canada, Germany, Australia etc. Between 2003 and 2013, the US saw a drastic rise in the number of immigrant scientists and engineers from 21.6 million to 29 million according to the National Centre for Science and Engineering Statistics. (NCSES)

Causes of Brain Drain

Brain drain is caused due to a combination of the “pull factors'' and the “push factors”. Developed nations have more pull factors and the developing nations having more push factors leads to brain drain. 

Push factors are the reason why people move out of their country. It includes underemployment or under-paid jobs. People move to other countries when they don’t get paid enough for their skillset. Another major factor is standard of living. People prefer to move out from countries which lack basic facilities like proper education, healthcare and pleasant working conditions.

Lack of research opportunities in the developing nations are another reason that makes people move to another country for higher studies. Disaster prone areas and lack of safety can also be a push factor to move to another country. The push factors not only cause brain drain but also indicate the inadequacy of proper facilities in the native country. 

Pull factors are the factors that attract an immigrant to the destination. These are the exact opposites to the push factors. This includes better employment or educational opportunities, political rights, pleasant working conditions etc. These factors make the immigrants stay back and they often turn into permanent residents of the country. 

It is extremely important to ensure properly funded research laboratories for higher studies, better salary for skilled occupations and a good working environment.

The solution to brain drain is to develop the overall standard of living in order to utilise the human capital of the country efficiently.

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
