Skill India or Reservation- What’s Your Take?

Skill India or Reservation- What’s Your Take?

Wisdom is in guiding the youth towards the right path. The next thing that comes to our mind is the channel to escalate the right movement. With population soaring high and opportunities stuck to limited, only well-planned action can save our youth. In the scarcity of employment, basic needs of food, shelter and clothing are not met; competing with world powers can occur only in dreams.

Training Human Power

The ‘Skill India’ campaign was launched by PM Narendra Modi in 2015 with an aim to impart skill training to 400 million Indian people by the year 2022. The step is in sync with the policies of many developed countries.

These are the various skill development schemes launched by the Indian government.

1.Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana

2.Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana

3.Financial Assistance for Skill Training of Persons with Disabilities

4.National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme

5.Craftsmen Training Scheme

6.Apprenticeship training

7.Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra

8.Skill development for minorities

9.Green Skill Development Programme

The sole aim of Skill India is to direct the nation in the right direction. Development of skills not only imbibes confidence in the candidate but also prepares him to earn respectful living. Reservation is similar to giving alms to the person in need; appears more like begging if the person at receiving end is not deserving. I want to stress on these words. Demanding reservation is like begging if the person is not worthy of the position.

  • To me, the idea of Reservation is not relevant after the point when fake identities sprout up to enjoy the benefits meant for the needy.
  • People seek reservation for being what they are for generations. Nobody wants to lag behind in the crazy race for prestigious positions.
  • Our population is so high that getting into a good educational institute or securing a dream job is quite difficult. Students prefer to grab the opportunities in other countries.
  • Imparting skill training to the youth of the country is a thoughtful step. The reservation has a few limited benefits while Skill India is aiming at long time achievements.

In my opinion, skillful training for young people is better than reserving seats for them. Inculcate the habit of earning through decent means and stop feeding them with alms of reservation.
If we want to build the nation of strength, promote talent and not the reservation.

Must have read this proverb:
“Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Chandigarh- City Beautiful with a Heart

Chandigarh- City Beautiful with a Heart

A person with Punjab connection resonates with the simple mention of the city beautiful- Chandigarh. I am one such fellow. Internationally known for its planning and architecture, Le Corbusier’s creation Chandigarh is one of the cleanest and the happiest cities in India. In one of the articles, BBC named Chandigarh as the perfect city in terms of architecture, modernisation and cultural growth.
Back in the 1890s, the first architect of the city Albert Mayer challenged ‘American claim that rejected the City Beautiful concepts’ and determined to build one. The city, later completed by Le Corbusier in 1949 replaced Lahore, the capital city of Punjab before partition.

One can find a number of ‘The Open Hand sculptures’ in Le Corbusier’s Chandigarh, a sign of peace and reconciliation. Chandigarh derived its name from the ancient temple of an Indian Goddess- ‘Chandi Mandir’ in Panchkula.

The city has produced many renowned personalities. Industry exposure, the freedom of expression and a great many opportunities, Chandigarh attracts learners and achievers from all over the country.
Ayushman Khurrana, Abhinav Bindra, Yami Gautam, Yuvraj Singh, Bani J, Sachin Bansal- Binny Bansal and Gul Panag are a few of the famous personalities from the city:)

My Connection with Chandigarh

When I was a child, Chandigarh was my parents’ favourite place to visit on weekends. Just two hours drive from our home and complete with amazing things to do, Chandigarh carved a deep influence on my mind and heart.
The city is well-planned and the breathtaking modern architecture takes you on a dream ride. My all-time favourites are Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Sukhna Lake, Musical fountain, Sector 17 market and Japanese Garden.

Rock Garden

It was the creative mind of Nek Chand who built sculptures from waste materials like broken crockery, glass and bangles. The man raised the 13-acre empire of pottery covered concrete structures. Rock Garden was opened to the general public in 1986. A workforce of 50 labourers was allotted to Nek Chand to develop the garden.

You will be surprised to know that Rock Garden is the second most popular place in India after Taj Mahal.

Sukhna Lake

Sukhna Lake is the place Chandigarh people love to boast about. Le Corbusier created the lake for the care of body and spirit. Seasonal steam ‘Sukhna Choe’ was dammed to develop beautiful Sukhna Lake. Tranquil lake, green patches and picturesque view, Sukhna lake is adored by one and all. It is frequently visited by tourists, health-conscious walkers, families seeking quality-time together and enthusiastic youngsters.

Japanese Garden

Japanese Garden is counted as one of the best places to visit in Chandigarh. Japanese architecture, Pagoda tower, meditation hut and Japanese food; Japanese Garden takes you to Japan without travelling too far. Buddha idol and other sculptures make your visit enjoyable.

Laser Musical Fountain

You can’t afford to miss the Laser Musical Fountain in the happening market of sector 17. Colourful patterns of light dancing with the fountain water presents a breathtaking view. Wait for the night to fall for the exclusive light and sound show. It will be a precious addition to your cherished memories:)
