Women Education in India

Education is our birth right. Education is essential for every human being as it makes our lives better and worth living. Therefore schooling has become a norm and children at the age of 4 starts attending school. But in many areas of the country, still, if the child is a girl, then there are many hindrances to her access to education. The common perception is that the girls of the family will get married one day and would not contribute to the financial needs of the family. This is a disheartening picture and it is very essential to make people understand that education of women is a fundamental right just like men.

No society can progress without the contribution of women. Therefore women needs to be educated. Education is the first step to provide a woman the power to choose a life she wants to lead. An educated woman becomes aware of her rights and raise her voice against exploitation, discrimination or any form of injustice. The struggle to promote women education has begun long time back and even in the 21st century it is still continuing. When talking about women education in India, the mention of Savitribai Phule and her husband Jyotirao Phule has to be made who established India’s first school for girls in Pune in the year 1848.

Importance of Women Education

Self Reliance : An educated woman need not depend on a third person for her survival.

Elimination of crime against women : Education is a vital weapon in eliminating crimes and evils against women. Social customs such as dowry, female infanticides and other harmful practices can be eradicated through women education when the women of the country stand up together against such practices.

Woman empowerment : Education makes a woman aware of her rights and duties and enables them to respond to the challenges in a bold way.

Improvised standards of living : When a woman earns, she can utilize her money on her own and no other males would have a say on that. Women Education elevates the standard of living of the family.

Prevents social exclusion : Uneducated women or a girl child is likely to work as a domestic help or in extreme cases become a victim of flesh trade over the opposite gender and these women often get secluded in society.

Contribution to the welfare of society : Educated women gets themselves involved in developmental activities and work for the progress of the country. Women like Kalpana Chawla, Kiran Bedi, Mother Teresa, Mary Kom set a classic example.

Sadly, there are many barriers of Women Education in India.

Barriers of Women Education

1. Lack of consciousness among some women to be educated : Some women are not aware that education is important for them. This maybe because of the environment where they were born and brought up with the so called notion that she is supposed to be in the kitchen and not in school and women happens to believe that it is her fate.

2. Lack of safe transportation for school going girls : Due to lack of safe transportation to go to school, parents hesitate to send their daughters to school. Now this barrier is common for everyone whether it is a rural or urban area.

3. Financial constraints of the family : If the family of a woman cannot afford the education expense, they would pull her out of school. The education of the son is always given preference than the daughter.

4. Unwillingness of parents to send girl child to school : Some parents don’t want their daughters to attend schools and colleges. Some families still think that daughters are a burden and believe that the sooner they are married off, the better. Education never comes into the scenario in such cases.

5. Early marriage : Education of women is stopped when she gets married. Some families allow their daughter-in-law to continue their study after marriage but it is very rare. 10 out of 100 families do that. In most cases, when girls gets married early, their education stops then and there.

6. Conservative mentality : It is very sad to see people having low mentality towards women education. Some believe that if a girl is too educated, it would be difficult to search a groom for her. Also it is a well known fact that Indian families spend more money on a girl’s marriage than on her education. The married life of a woman is always given more importance than her career.

Women Education in India can be improved when

. We do not consider a girl to be a burden.

. People should stop thinking that cooking, laundry and other household activities are woman’s job.

. People should stop categorizing women as inferior.

. Encourage people to send their daughters to school without discrimination.

. Encourage people to not stop the education of a girl just because she got a great match and needs to get married.

Popular quotes on Women Education

” To educate girls is to reduce poverty.” – Kofi Annan

Women Education contributes to the overall development and progress of our country. A society lacks behind if the women are not happy. Education is the master key to open the doors of development and it is high time for the society to acknowledge it.

Hrithik Roshan, Preity Zinta, and Amitabh Bachchan star in Lakshya, a coming-of-age film. Farhan Akhtar’s second film as a filmmaker is set against a fictionalized setting of the 1999 Kargil War.

Lakshya is a film starring Hrithik Roshan about the lives and experiences of an army guy.

About Lakshya

Lakshya (English: Aim) is a 2004 Bollywood war drama film directed by Farhan Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, starring Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Preity Zinta. Lieutenant (later acting Captain) Karan Shergill is played by Hrithik Roshan, who transforms from an aimless young man to an army officer. It’s a coming-of-age drama set against the fictitious backdrop of the Kargil War of 1999.

Plot

Hrithik Roshan’s character, Karan Shergill, is a slacker and aimless young man from Delhi with no plans for the future. His father, Sanjeev Shergill (Boman Irani), is a prosperous businessman, and his brother, Udesh Shergill, is a successful American. Romila Dutta (Preity Zinta), commonly known as Romi, a student activist and aspiring journalist, tells him he needs to choose a goal in life out of good intentions. Karan takes the Combined Defence Services Examination despite his parents’ objections when his friend Parvesh reveals his intention to join the Indian Army.

Karan is accepted into the Indian Military Academy, despite the fact that his friend declines. He is, however, undisciplined and unaccustomed to life in such environment. Because of his arrogance and laziness, he is constantly chastised by the training staff. He flees the academy, enraged, and is forced to confront his parents’ disapproval of him. Romi gets enraged and breaks up with him since he does not respect his own decision. Karan, distraught, ultimately accepts his condition and takes his decision. He returns to the IMA, accepts his punishment, develops into a focused, disciplined officer cadet, and is finally commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Indian Army.

Karan is assigned to the Punjab Regiment’s 3rd battalion, which is led by Col. Sunil Damle (Amitabh Bachchan). The battalion is based in Ladakh’s Kargil. Karan returns home on leave and is heartbroken to learn that Romi is engaged, but his time is cut short when an outbreak of hostilities in Kargil forces him to return to his regiment.He returns to his battalion and is promoted to the position of acting Captain. Col. Damle gives the officers an update on the situation, revealing that a group of infiltrators has crossed the Line of Control (LoC) from Pakistan and is now occupying a series of mountain peaks on the Indian side of the border.

The battalion has been tasked with securing Position 5179, a strategic vantage point overlooking the army’s primary supply route, National Highway 1D. The mountain’s northern side is on the Pakistani side of the LoC, its western side has a 1000-foot steep rock face, and its southern side is 3 kilometers of open ground with no cover. As a result, the battalion decides to strike from the mountain’s eastern flank. The assault’s first phase is successful. The enemy’s screening troops are destroyed, and Karan is commended for his valor in saving another officer’s life. Meanwhile, Romi is assigned as a war correspondent to Kargil.Romi travels to Kargil, where she encounters a changed Karan and begs for forgiveness.

Karan, on the other hand, is hesitant to reciprocate her affections because he believes she is engaged. The battalion attacks the mountain’s peak in the second phase of the assault, but fails to seize it due to Pakistan’s strategic advantage and heavy artillery. The unit loses a large number of casualties. Brigadier Puri (Amrish Puri) summons Col. Damle and instructs him 48 hours to conquer the peak; if he fails to do so, the battalion in charge of Point 5179 would be transferred to another unit. Col. Damle then commands a group of 12 officers and men (including Karan) to scale the 1000-foot cliff on the mountain’s western side and flank the German stronghold.

From the eastern side, artillery assistance will be offered. Karan realizes that by capturing the summit, he has finally found his aim. Karan also finds out about Romi’s failed engagement and professes his love for her. Romi assures Karan that she will wait for him whether or not he returns.The troop goes out on their objective and comes under fire while traveling through a grass field toward the rock face. The team finds and eliminates a Pakistani mortar unit in the field, but their commanding officer and a number of other soldiers are killed. The team’s radios have also been destroyed, preventing them from communicating with battalion headquarters. Only six of the original 12 are still alive.

They make the decision to carry on with the mission. During the night, they successfully scale the cliff and attack the Pakistani position. Although Karan is injured and the team loses three more guys, their assault is successful. The next morning, Karan limps to the summit, where he plants the Indian flag and fires a flare to alert Col. Damle that the mountain has been taken.Karan leaves a military hospital and reunites with his parents and Romi towards the end of the film. Romi inquires as to what his next goal is now that he has achieved his ‘Lakshya.’ “You,” Captain Shergill responds, and they embrace.Colonel Sunil Damle and Subedar Major Pritam Singh pay tribute to martyrs at the end of the film.

Conclusion

The film earned critical acclaim and became a cult war film, and it is still a fan favorite among moviegoers.

WATER AND THE HUMAN BODY

Water is an essential nutrient that our body requires every day. Without water human life cannot be sustained. Water deprivation kills faster than lack of any other nutrient. People don’t realize the important role of water in the body function.Water facilitates the transportation system of the body. It is the medium by which all the other nutrients and other essential elements are distributed to every part of the body. Water also transports the waste from the body. The body looses water in the form of swear during exercise and vigorous physical activity. It is also lost a urine which accounts for three quarters of the body water loss. Dark yellow urine indicates dehydration and means that we should consume more water.

Water comes from a variety of sources. All beverages, juices and fluids we consume are sources of water for our body. Even solid food contains water. Vegetables such as cucumber, lettuce and celery may have up to 90% water. Protein rich food such as meat and fish could contain two-thirds to one half of their water. Even carbohydrates like grains, although do not appear to be watery could contain water as much as one third of their weight. fats such as butter or margarine contain very little water. Some water may come from within our body because of energy metabolism but the amount is insignificant. Although juices, milk and beverages increase fluid intake but plain water is the best source. Most beverages contain some sugar, natural or added, this will have an effect on our body weight. Drink water throughout the day at regular intervals. If we consume too much water just before going to bed, it may interfere with the sleep. Feeling of tiredness and migraine, even without other symptoms, may indicate dehydration. It would help to sip one or two glasses of water. If this feeling does not go off then it will be due to some other reasons and require medical assistance.

Percentage of water in human body

According to H.H Mitchell. Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% of water, and the lungs are about 83% of water. The skin contains 64% of water, muscles and kidneys are 79% and even the bones are watery about 31%.

Each day human must consume a certain amount of water to survive. Of course, this varies according to age and gender, and also by where someone lives. Generally, an adult male needs about 3 liters per day while an adult female needs about 20.2 liters per day. In general, women have a lower body water percentage than men. This is because women have more tissue than man. The ideal percentage for adult women will fluctuate between 45 and 60%, while the ideal percentage for adult men will be between 50 and 65% of the total body. All of the water a person needs does not have to come from drinking liquids, as some of this water is contained in the food we eat.

What happens if we don’t consume water

Any deficit in normal body water-through dehydration, sickness, exercise or heat stress can make us feel rotten. First we feel thirsty and fatigue, and may develop a mild headache. This eventually gives was to grumpiness, and mental and physical decline.

Disadvantages of water

It is said that too much consumption of water can lead to fluid overload in the body and imbalance in the body. Excess water can lead to lower sodium levels in the body, which may further lead to nausea, vomiting, cramps, fatigue, etc. This condition is known as hyponatremia.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is one of the most common neurological development disorder. This problem is usually common in childhood but it may last till adulthood as well. Children with ADHD find difficulty in concentrating, might make impulsive decisions, and even be overly active. This neurological disorder can be seen between as early as 3 to 6 years of age. This can continue till adulthood. Adults when are left undiagnosed may have a history of poor academic performance, problems at work, or failed relationships. Though it is a quite common problem still not many people give importance to ADHD. To avoid future problems for your child it is important to treat this issue. But for the treatment, one should be aware of the signs and symptoms. 

Signs and Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

ADHD Symptoms | Kids World Fun Blog

Majorly ADHD has 3 key symptoms. Some people might possess only one of the symptoms while some may have more. Generally, children have combined types of ADHD. Preschool children with ADHD are usually hyperactive. Inattention, unfocused motor activity, or impulsivity is normal but ADHD people find it quite often and more severe.

Causes of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Generally, ADHD tends to run in family bloodline. As a result, it is present in the genes of a child as well. Unbalanced release of brain chemicals is another cause of ADHD. Areas of the brain that are responsible for controlling brain actions are less active in these children. Lack of nutrition, infections, smoking, drinking and substance abuse during pregnancy can affect the baby. Toxins such as lead can affect a child’s brain development. Problem with the frontal lobe of the brain results in uncontrollable impulses and emotions. 

How to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

Naturopathic Treatment Options for ADHD – Naturopathic Doctor News and  Review

According to the research, the multimodal approach is considered the best way to treat ADHD. This method includes multiple approaches for treatment. It is very important to keep close contact with doctors, teachers, parents, and therapists. Medications are available to treat hyper activeness, impulsive behavior, and improve attention span as well. Though there are some controversies regarding the overuse of these medications. This is because mostly stimulants are commonly prescribed medicines for this purpose.

Final words

To conclude, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is an important issue. We must not ignore this problem and give proper treatments at an early stage of life so as to avoid future problems in your child. With proper treatment and medical care, a child can easily and entirely overcome this issue. Without treatment, it is difficult for children to develop social skills. Adults find troubles in relationships and can even get addict to substances. 

Meet Ham : The first Chimp in Space

On 31st March 1961, A chimpanzee named Ham was sent to space. NASA was later planning to send a human into Earth’s orbit. With Ham’s help, the project to send a human into earth’s orbital became successful. The competition was getting ignited between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union had previously sent a dog to space and thus proving that mammals can survive in space. And this was how the ‘chimp in space’ project was born. Ham’s space flight lasted 16 ½ minutes and he spent a total of 6 ½  minutes in gravity.

NASA used to call Ham ‘Number 65’ as they thought that media and viewers will cling to a cute name and thus he was never called Ham until he arrived safely from space. Ham was given hardcore training by NASA so that Ham would survive in space.

On  31st January 1961, he was strapped to his capsule called the bio pack, he was also attached with biosensors. He was monitored using computers by NASA officials. Ham’s capsule was cracked due to the high speed and there was a loss of air pressure. Also, Ham landed 132 miles away in the Atlantic ocean from the predicted landing spot it took the recruited USS donner hours to search for harm but at last, he was rescued it was reported that due to the crack Ham was at high risk and was saved only by his suit.

After the space mission, it was reported that Ham was reluctant to sit back in that space chair. The data collected from Ham’s mission was really helpful to send Alan Shepher Jr., the First American in space in May 1961.

After the mission, Ham was sent to a zoo in Washington DC where he lived 17 years in solitude and 3 years with other chimpanzees. Unfortunately, he died on 19 January 1983 at the age of 25 (which is too young for a chimpanzee) His body was buried at the International Space Hall of Fame, New Mexico. Also, his skull is preserved at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Maryland.
