Is getting a job in India a major task? Millions of young working people from the age group of 20-30 years are in the toughest spot of employment opportunities declining and disruption in India due to coronavirus pandemic and frequent lockdowns. Well, a large portion of employed people is unemployed in April in the previous lockdown. It has been difficult since many people are homeless and many have returned to their native places. It has been tough for them to be back on the payroll as getting a job is been difficult and most of the companies, offices has decreased the staff to 50% quantity for cutting down the salaries of employees and many companies are also cutting cost to maintain the economic slowdown. According to the monitoring Indian economy, 1.8 Crores of salaried people have lost their jobs since 25th March 2020, and 50 lakhs were reported in July.
One of the major issues of employment in India is poor infrastructure, and lack of skill-based schools and colleges. The highest number of unemployed have in Guwahati which is almost 3 lakh. Our education system is mainly concerned with the quality, knowledge, and written examination more than practical knowledge. Because of these reasons, even after graduation getting a job is a difficult task while interviewing many of them face issues regarding confidence and skills. But as we all the world has been changed in few months because of noble corona virus. We all know how students have given their exams, from home and online exams are known to be the easiest as there is no invigilator to check upon kids. Though all are not the same one point we, do know. For example, Today there was this ad in the newspaper regarding hiring new employees. In that ad, it was 2021 pass-outs are not allowed for this job requirement. This clearly showed what will be the impact on students on not getting any jobs. Another example is, one of my cousins applied for the job in a very big and renowned ad company in Mumbai, perhaps having a good CV and smartness she didn’t get the job there. She’s interning in that company itself but not on the level she deserves. This clearly explains how corona virus has got all of us into it. Within a month, unemployment increased 6.7% in March to 26% in April. It is reported that 45% of the households have been dropped.
Most of the Indian population won’t be able to handle this because there will be no savings for future purposes if the situation continues, which will affect the future generation. All in all our education system is vague and even after one dedicates 15 years of its short life he struggles to get a 15,000 salary. We need to rethink this, the system needs to be changed, our thoughts and beliefs need to be changed.
Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 1967 is a law that aims at preventing any unlawful activities by any association that might jeopardise India’s sovereigntyand integrity. Parliament has recently passed the UAPA Bill in 2019 which have made some changes in the existing law.
In the existing law, only the associations/groups are termed “terrorist organisations”. However, in the new bill, individuals can be designated as ” terrorists “.
The new existing law states that the power to conduct investigations on cases related to UAPA rest with officers of the rank of Deputy Superintendent or ACP and above whereas the new bill provides this power to officers of the rank of inspectors and above. The changes are not made on aspects related to arrest and bails.
In the existing law, the NIA must have prior permission from the Director General of Police before seizure or attachment of properties. However, the bill gives the power to NIA to approve of the seizure or attachment of the property without any permission from the DGPs.
International Convention for Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism(2005) has been added in the amendment.
Human Rights groups are openly opposing the proposed changes in the laws. According to them, notifying an individual as a terrorist without giving him an opportunity of being heard violates the individual’s right to dignity and reputation, which is a facey of right to life and personal liberty under Article 21.
Further, the ambiguous nature of the act affects federal structure of the nation as it gives more power to the central government. Branding anyone a terrorist without any judicial process, legal consequences and defence and limited justice for the accused and curtailing the powers of the State Police Forces are among the concerns with regard to the bill.
The idea behind passing of such amendments was to strengthen the security of a nation from external state and non-state actors. However, an integrated approach should be followed while making such amendments to create a balance between human rights, fundamental rights and national security.

A learning disorder characterised by difficulty reading.Dyslexia occurs in children with normal vision and intelligence.
Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects your ability to read, spell, write, and speak. Kids who have it are often smart and hardworking, but they have trouble connecting the letters they see to the sounds those letters make.
what causes dyslexia?
It’s linked to genes, which is why the condition often runs in families. You’re more likely to have dyslexia if your parents, siblings, or other family members have it.The condition stems from differences in parts of the brain that process language. Imaging scans in people with dyslexia show that areas of the brain that should be active when a person reads don’t work proper.
Symptoms include late talking, learning new words slowly and a delay in learning to read.
KEY WORDS TO REMEMBER
Difficult to read
Difficult to spell
Difficult to understand the meaning
Not able to sound
HERE ARE THE SYMPTOMS
Difficulty reading, including reading aloud Slow and labor-intensive reading and writing Problems spelling Avoiding activities that involve reading Mispronouncing names or words, or problems retrieving words Trouble understanding jokes or expressions that have a meaning not easily understood from the specific words (idioms), such as “piece of cake” meaning “easy”
Inability to sound out the pronunciation of an unfamiliar word Difficulty spelling Spending an unusually long time completing tasks that involve reading or writing Avoiding activities that involve reading.
TEENS AND ADULTS
Teens and adults Dyslexia signs in teens and adults are similar to those in children. Some common dyslexia signs and symptoms in teens and adults include
a story Trouble learning
a foreign language Difficulty
doing math problems
Once your child is in school, dyslexia signs and symptoms may become more apparent, including:Reading well below the expected level for age Problems processing and understanding what he or she hears Difficulty finding the right word or forming answers to questions Problems remembering the sequence of things Difficulty seeing (and occasionally hearing) similarities and differences in letter of words
WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR
Though most children are ready to learn reading by kindergarten or first grade, children with dyslexia often can’t grasp the basics of reading by that time. Talk with your doctor if your child’s reading level is below what’s expected for his or her age or if you notice other signs of dyslexia.When dyslexia goes undiagnosed and untreated, childhood reading difficulties continues…
The worldwide spyware industry has been operating in the shadows for years, with only human rights organisations and journalists exposing it. According to the industry, it is in the business of combating crime and terrorism. However, its members frequently sell to governments that conflate the terms “criminal” and “terrorist” with “critic” and “dissent.”
Over the weekend, Forbidden Stories, a Paris-based media foundation, teamed up with a global consortium of news organisations, including the Post, to expose how phoney the promises of combating crime and terror are. According to the consortium, Israel’s NSO Group has marketed their signature spyware, Pegasus, to clients who have used it against the basic pillars of democratic life: press freedom, telecommunications freedom, and freedom of expression.
Pegasus, like other tools, converts journalists’ phones, opposition lawmakers’ phones, and nonviolent activists’ phones into real-time spying devices. Hundreds of journalists and politicians from Hungary, India, Mexico, Morocco, and other countries are among the phone numbers named as spyware targets in a leaked list.
Hundreds of companies compete for a slice of the lucrative private surveillance pie all around the world. Some apps allow for intrusions into a person’s phone or tablet. Others create surveillance software, malicious facial recognition software, direct access to Internet traffic, and user data and communications.
They sell and service their products to government clients regardless of their status. We are on the verge of a worldwide surveillance technology disaster, with an avalanche of tools being shared across borders and governments failing to impose export or usage restrictions.
The international community needs to act to rein in the global spyware industry. The following should be included in the endeavour. To begin, states should impose a ban on the sale and transfer of spyware technology until a worldwide export policy can detect and restrict these tools.
Governments should negotiate a regime that, among other things, carefully defines the technologies in question; requires transparent human-rights assessments for the development and transfer of any such tools; includes a public registry of tools, companies, and clients; and allows public comment in the case of any export application. If a worldwide regime fails to be bold enough, democratic countries should agree to prohibit both domestic and international use of spyware.
The European Union just took a small step toward regulating surveillance technology trade, not only because of the threat to national security, but also because of the threat to human rights. However, the fact that Viktor Orban’s government in Hungary is listed as a client of NSO Group in the Pegasus Project demonstrates why simply regulating the trade in spyware systems is insufficient. After all, European officials are disingenuous in seeking restrictions on the trade in spyware systems when Europeans market the techniques of choice. It’s even more difficult to be credible when the European Union uses the latest spyware techniques to track dissent.
Israel’s double standard is particularly evident. NSO Group, as well as other spyware companies such as Candiru, which Microsoft accused of selling tools to get into Windows last week, are based in the country. It is critical that Israel reins in its spyware industry and joins democratic nations in combating the spread of technology that mimic commercial intelligence agencies. Second, export control isn’t the only instrument at your disposal for limiting spyware’s propagation.
For any use of spyware, governments adopting these technologies must establish transparent, rule-of-law-based criteria. Any government that does not adopt such rules — or has a history of abuse — should be placed on a global no-transfer list. Democracies and authoritarian governments are likely to split out soon. Third, spyware victims must be allowed to sue governments and firms participating in the monitoring sector.
Individuals are frequently victimised by agents working beyond their boundaries due to the prevalence of transnational repression, while domestic law frequently creates impediments to accountability. Those impediments must be removed. Finally, multi-stakeholder constraints must be imposed on the firms themselves. The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, a global benchmark for corporate human rights practise, are said to be followed by the NSO Group. It, on the other hand, does not subject its policy to any independent review.
The international community should work toward a worldwide code of behaviour and halt the growth of spyware for repression, taking a leaf from the campaign to control the private mercenary sector. The current discoveries regarding NSO’s Pegasus software’s reach and dangers are the latest, and hopefully final, wake-up call for the private spyware sector to be reined in.

Writing a resume requires a balance of finesse and attention-to-detail to land an interview for the role you seek. It’s all about presenting your professional brand in a way that will pique the interest of a hiring manager.
There’s more than one way to write a resume. But writing a good resume is easier said than done, especially if you lack formal work experience. However, there are some resume-writing tips that can help you present your best skills and top achievements to potential employers.
Before you start writing your resume, there are a few things you’ll need to prepare. Remember, each resume you write should be customized to an individual role.
To ensure you have all the information you need at your fingertips, keep the following in mind:
Look at the job ad to understand the role.
List your applicable soft, hard and technical skills.
Highlight important job duties from each of your previous positions.
Choosing the Resume Format
Before you start writing anything, the first step is to decide on the right format for your resume. There are three basic resume formats used by job seekers today: reverse-chronological, functional, and combination.
Chronological resume format
Functional resume format
Combination resume format
So, which format is the best?
Fortunately, there’s a simple answer: the reverse chronological format is the best choice for the vast majority of job seekers. Most employers are used to seeing chronological resumes, and it’s considered the standard format for job seekers in every industry.
Why? Because for most new and mid-level professionals the chronological format is the best way to showcase their blossoming career.
The professional summary is how you grab a reader’s attention and express your career goals and interest in three to five sentences. It is usually the section hiring managers spend the most time on, so it should be both succinct and customized to the job posting.
Use this section if:
I am an entry-level applicant.
I do not have in-depth experience in the industry.
I am a recent college graduate.
I have a wealth of industry-specific skill sets.
I am changing career paths.
Here are two examples of career objectives:
“Dedicated marketing professional with 12 years of experience looking to explore a career in design.”
“Recent graduate looking to pursue a career at a pharmaceutical company in chemical research.”
Writing your work experience section
Employers want to see the impact your work has had in your previous jobs, so your work experience should be more than just a list of responsibilities. Results matter and numbers are powerful. Regardless of your role, it’s usually possible to find data or metrics that prove your impact in previous roles. Some tips:
List your jobs in reverse-chronological order. Add your most recent position first. If you have many years of experience or have changed jobs often, focus on the first 10 years of your employment history.
Show off the positive. Did you give great advice to customers or improve a less than effective program? Then let your future employers know so they can see what you’d bring to the table if you are hired.
Don’t forget keywords. Whenever possible, use keywords from the job ad to describe your accomplishments and job duties. Use the same language as the job posting. Don’t clutter your resume with buzzwords because you think you should. Use your real experience to prove that you’re a great fit.
Completing the resume
Now that you’ve written the bulk of your resume, it’s time to focus on the finer details of your document. Listing out your educational experience proves your industry qualifications and lets employers know you are a good fit.
To start, your header/contact information should be in a font that is professional and easy to read. Make sure to double-check your contact information for accuracy. Add the finishing touches to your resume by including:
Links to your portfolio or website, if applicable
Link to your LinkedIn profile
Details about special training and certifications, if applicable
Information about awards and honors you’ve won, if they are relevant to the role
Edit and proofread your resume
Fact-check the details. Double-check things like dates and the spelling of company or school names and that all of your contact information is accurate and up to date.
Proofread your resume. Your hard work on making the resume most presentable will go down the drain if your resume is full of spelling and grammatical errors. Read the page from top to bottom before deeming it ready for recruiters. Whenever possible, send your document to a trusted friend for a fresh set of eyes.

Thirty-five years ago, it was on 19 March 1986 that the first mass suicide by a farmers family in Yavatmal district was recorded. Sahebrao Karpe Patil, a farmer, a former panchayat member of Chil Gavhan village had committed suicide along with his wife and four children. The family had traveled from what was then a relatively remote village in Yavatmal to Pavanar in nearby district, where Vinoba Ashram is located. The farmer couple committed suicide by consuming pesticide, first feeding their children the poisonous food. On Delhi’s borders, over 250 farmers associated with the ongoing agitation are said to have lost their lives over the past few months. Quite a few of them are said to have committed suicide, others died due to exposure to harsh winter, illnesses and accident.
Farmers suicide in India refers to the national catastrophe of framers committing suicide since the 1970’s, often by drinking pesticides, due to their inability to repay loans mostly taken from private landlords and banks. The National Crime Records Bureau of India reported that a total 294,438 Indian farmers had committed suicide since 1995. Out of these 60,750 farmers suicides were in state of Maharashtra since 1995 and the remaining in Odisha, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Chattisgarh, all states with loose financial and entry regulations.
India is an agrarian country with around 70% of its people of depending directly or indirectly upon agriculture. Agriculture had 15.4% share in economy of India in year 2017. Around 41.49% of total labor are associated with agriculture in the year 2020. Farmer suicide account for 11.2% of all suicides in India. Activists and scholars have offered a number of conflicting reasons for framer suicides, such as anti farmer laws, high debt burdens, poor government policies, corruption in suicides, crop failure, mental health, personal issues and family problems.
Causes of farmers suicide
Inability to sell the crops grown
Disappointing realization of prices
Family problems Sense of loss and depression
The indebtedness of farmers is one of the main reasons driving them to commit suicide. The problem starts with the availability of timely credit. The banking sector is not ready to provide credit or loan to agriculture for avoiding risk. From 1991 to 2001, the indebtedness of farmers has grown by two times. Agriculture credit became a low priority, with some committees suggesting withdrawal of credit support to farmers. Credit for housing and buying a car is available at a 9% to 11% rate of interest while a crop loans to the farmers are 17%. This shows the lack of government support for the farmers.
The impact on COVID-19 on farmers
The coronavirus disease has impacted not only physical health but also mental health and well-being globally. These impacts can be critically higher among marginalized individuals and populations like farmers in India. Suicidal behavior is not new among farmers in the middle of COVID-19 lockdown, who had debts and could find laborers during the lockdown leading to helpless situation of committing suicide. Every year, Indian farmers face risks such as low rainfall, price volatility and rising debts. But risks from the COVID-19 pandemic are putting new challenges in front of a sector that is already under threat. The nation wide lockdown came at an unfortunate time farmers, as it was the harvest season for the winter crop (rabi).
The government of India needs to take measures to prevent this issue. The government must provide proper institutional financial support to farmers, a good crop insurance scheme in cases of crop failure, and provide genuine relief to the affected farmers because, every farmer who commits suicide, the country is falling one step down. So, we need to save our farmers from this misery as they are the ones who feed us.
Bollywood and sports are without a doubt the most popular industries in India. And when they both come together, one should expect nothing less than a classic film for people of all age groups. The story of an underdog’s success, a biopic about a famous sports star or a forgotten hero, Bollywood has given us a number of ‘must watch’ movies. Here are 20 Bollywood Sports Movies that you absolutely should not miss:
Ohh, this movie! Drama, Romance, Cricket – it has everything you need in a Bollywood movie. Emraan Hashmi finds cricket match-fixing as a shortcut to earn a lot of money. He marries the girl of his dreams without telling her about his wrongdoings. But all hell breaks loose when the girl realizes where Emraan’s gets his luxurious living from.
The movie shows the ugly side of cricket which has been in the news for the past few decades. You get a closer look in the world of match-fixing and betting. And although there is a lot of drama in the movie, the storyline and the character played by Emraan Hashmi makes this a must watch movie.
2Ferrari Ki Sawaari
Yes, there will be a lot of movies related to cricket in this list. Because let’s face it, Cricket and Bollywood simply cannot be separated.
Ferrari Ki Sawaari is the movie about an honest father who goes out of his ways to help his son’s Cricket career. Sharman Joshi plays the role of a father who wants nothing but his son to succeed in Cricket. Boman Irani, on the other hand, does not want his grandson to get into the game where the competition can crush millions of dreams. Sharman’s son is selected for the training camp at the Lord’s and has a chance to play with none other than Sachin Tendulkar.
The only problem is Sharman is a clerk in the office and does not have the money to send his son to London. So the honest man decides to get his hands dirty for money – by stealing Sachin’s Ferrari for a day. The fun ride begins when he gets in trouble for the million dollar car.
The movie beautifully portrays how, despite being the nation with most opportunities in Cricket, we still miss out on a few gems who simply cannot afford to risk their livelihood to spend money on the game where they might or might not become successful due to the insane competition.
Biopics about Hockey players are a rarity in India. But the story of Sandeep Singh, the former Indian captain, is tailor-made for Bollywood.
Nicknamed Flicker Singh, the penalty corner specialist was accidentally shot in the back in Kalka Shatabdi Express train in 2006. Only 20 at the time of the accident, Sandeep Singh was almost paralyzed and had to spend a year on the wheelchair. The chances of him ever playing Hockey again were very bleak.
But the warrior that he was, Singh returned to the field, became the captain of India and played a crucial role in securing the Olympic qualification for London 2012. The movie brilliantly shows Singh’s determination to return after an injury and efforts he puts in to achieve his goal.
Apne is a classic Bollywood Sports movie about the family of boxers. The legendary actor, Dharmendra plays the role of a former boxer, falsely accused of doping. In order to get his reputation back, Dharmendra tries hard to train his both sons to win the championship. And the story of their struggle, hard work, and eventual success is truly remarkable.
Apne shows how a sport can bond the family and how they will put their lives on the line to climb to the top of the mountain.
5Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii
An example of how sports and comedy can be perfectly mixed in a movie. Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii is a story of an orphan who finds a ‘Magic Bat’ which helps him get into the struggling Indian cricket team.
The kid goes on to achieve success and fame with his performances. But can he succeed without magic? Was it the bat that had the magic or was it the kid himself? An entertaining movie with a beautiful ending, Chain Kulii Ki Main Kulii, is a must watch even for adults.
6Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar
Although not exactly a Sports movie, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar will always be remembered as the ‘Cycle Racing’ movie. The movie shows the rivalry between two colleges, Rajput College, for rich kids and the Model College, for students from middle-class families.
Aamir Khan plays the role of a happy-go-lucky student who hardly cares about a rivalry. But circumstance make him mature and he decides to make up for it in the marathon Cycle race. The movie takes a proper Bollywood turn in the middle, with subplots about love and relationships, but for a sports fan, this line is all you need to keep yourself motivated:
“Woh sikandar hi dosto kehlata hai, Haari baazi ko jeetna jise aata hai” (Real Champion is the one who can steal the win from the jaws of defeat)
The story of the former Indian cricket captain Mohammad Azharuddin’s life was nothing short of a movie itself. And it was eventually made into a biopic in 2016 with Emraan Hashmi playing the role of Azhar.
Azharuddin was the most successful captain of the Indian team before he was banned for life in a match-fixing scandal in 2000. The batsman was also famous for his off-field controversies, especially his affair with former Miss India Sangeeta Bijlani. The movie shows everything from Azhar’s hard work in the early days to his controversies, although with a lot of ‘masala’ in it.
8Budhia Singh – Born to Run
Definitely not the most glamorous and popular sports biopic, this movie is a story of the youngest marathon runner. Budhia Singh of Odisha ran 65 kilometers in seven hours and two minutes in 2006 when he was just five years old. He made it to the Limca Book of world record as the world’s youngest marathon runner. Singh had completed 48 marathons by the time he was only five.
But Singh’s story goes beyond the marathon. His mother sold him to a traveling salesman due to poverty before taking him back and sending him to a local judo coach and an orphanage operator. Singh’s coach, Biranchi Das, played by Manoj Bajpayee in the movie, was murdered in 2008 by a local gangster. But before his death, Das was questioned for his treatment towards Budhia Singh, who had earned fame and money due to his records.
Yet another gem of a movie, completely ignored by most of the fans. R. Madhavan plays the lead role of a boxer who never made it to the big stage due to dirty politics. But a few years later, he returns to the ring, this time as a coach of the women’s boxing team.
He faces adversities while coaching as well but eventually helps a fish seller, to win the World Boxing Championship. The movie is not far from the reality in India, where women athletes are still facing difficulties in training and partiality in selection.
10Paan Singh Tomar
Paan Singh Tomar was a soldier in the Indian Army, who won the gold medal in the steeplechase at the National Games. In fact, Tomar was the 7-time National champion in the 1950s.
But his life took an ugly turn when he returned to his village after retirement. Tomar was involved in the family dispute where one thing led to another and the former National Champion ended up murdering eight people. He was eventually shot dead by Police after a few years of laying low and running away from them.
In the movie, Irrfan Khan plays the role of Pan Singh Tomar and the actor has absolutely nailed it, winning the National Award for the ‘Best Actor’.
This one needs no introduction – the story of 6-time World Champion and an Olympic Bronze medallist, Mary Kom. The boxer had to fight against poverty, gender discrimination before making her name in the field of boxing.
