Riots occur for many reasons, but for our topic we will focus on riots that are caused by or occur at sporting events. We hope to explain why many violent acts happen at sporting events in stands, outside arena's, and after games. In order to look into this matter, we must first understand what violence in sports is and how it may affect young children's mindsets. In order to full understand the subject of sports violence we need to know the full definition of it. Violence in sports is defined by specialists as, "a physical assault or other physically harmful actions by a player that takes place in a sports context and that is intended to cause physical pain or injury to another player (or fan, coach, game official, etc.), where such harmful actions bear no direct relationship to the rules and associated competitive goals of the sport." This definition more...

The concept of 'brain drain' is a recent one that has ever strongly emerged since the last few decades. The phrase 'brain drain' refers to the increasing tendency of the young, energetic, capable and talented youth of a country who migrate to another country in search of their fortune - rather better fortune. They forsake their motherland for they seek better opportunities in other countries. This has become a charcteristic more of the intelligentsia of the nation - the doctors, engineers/ scientists, M.B.As, C.As, lawyers and other professionals—this explains, the specific use of the word 'Brain1 in the phrase 'Brain Drain'. Our country is gradually being deprived of its intellectual capacity. Our nation, if this continues, will be rendered intellectually impoverished and impotent. This in turn, is leading to a great loss of national wealth. But, have we ever thought of the reasons behind such a great outflow of 'brain' more...

It is rightly said that God made the country and manmade the town. In the villages, the people live in an open atmosphere. They get fresh air and sunlight. They inhale pure oxygen which they get from the trees and waving crops which grow in their fields. As compared to the towns' people, the people in the villages lead a tension free life. There is not much noise in villages. In villages, people generally get fresh vegetables and pure milk. They also consume lesser amount of fast food which is very harmful.  There are, however, certain advantages which the urban people have over the villages. There are much better employment avenues in towns. The security system is also better in towns. In towns, the people often do not feel bored, as they have several means of amusement and entertainment such as visiting different places or importance, a visit to the more...

In a country like India unemployment is a sheer wastage of manpower resources. Since Independence various new job opportunities have been created but these have not kept pace with the increasing number of employment-seekers. Problem of unemployment is becoming all the more serious each year. So far the problem remains unsolved. It has led to frustration and crimes which hamper the progress of the country. There are various causes of unemployment. The galloping birthrate results in larger and larger proportion of job seekers everywhere. To add to it our system of education is not employment-oriented. The industries, establishments and other institutions seek suitable professionals. Science has replaced man by machinery, thus reducing the number of persons otherwise engaged for the job. Rapid industrialization and neglect of small-scale industries have thrown many people out of job those who have the will and the knowledge to Begin a venture on their own, more...

Even after more than 60 years of  independence, poverty remains the most serious problems that India faces. India still has the world's largest number of poor people dwelling on its land. Of its population of more than 1.2 billion, an estimated 444 million are below the poverty line, out of which 61 per cent dwell in the rural areas of the country. Most of them are daily workers, landless labourers and self employed householders. A major percentage of this population is illiterate, with women, tribal and Scheduled Castes particularly being affected in large numbers. Today, one in every three persons living in abject poverty all over the world is an Indian. Poverty is a situation, which gives rise to the discrepancy between what one has and what one should have. Berstein Henry identifies a tew dimensions of poverty such as lack of livelihood strategies, inaccessibility to resources like money, land more...

It can be rightly said, "Cricket is a synonym of popularity". It is not only popular in Europe and Australia but it is also popular in Asian countries like Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India Cricket is like a religion and some players related to it are being treated as gods. Due to glamour and money, ICC has introduced new kind of cricket i.e., Twenty-20 cricket. The main purpose introducing this kind of cricket is to produce an extra amount of excitement amongst the spectators in a very limited time. As the name suggests, each side has to bat fin 20 over’s only. It is a fast and furious type of game. The match lasts only for three hours consisting only 20-minutes break between innings. To avoid time wasting the incoming batsman gets only a minute and 30 seconds to get ready to face the next ball. Fielding restrictions apply more...

Violence on TV Most people in our society generally has the opinion that violence on television increases aggression in children and adolescents. Does it? Who is to say whether television has a positively direct effect or a Positive correlation?

The concept of reservation was enshrined in the Constitution to allow the so-called deprived classes to come at par with the so-called privileged ones. The Constitution of India allows this kind of positive discrimination in order to bring about equality of opportunity and status to the underprivileged in the society. The founding fathers had never intended Reservation to be a temporary phenomenon. Reservations to the underprivileged were to be extended until they were uplifted socially and stabilized economically. Reservations, with the view of helping the deprived classes to gain a better footing and avail equal benefits of an independent and free nation, was introduced in the system. Yet, the various governments till now have failed to truly uplift the backward sections of the society and failed to provide them with equal opportunities even after 64 years of independence. Freedom and application of a reservation policy, has changed nothing. In reality, more...
