Euthanasia is defined as the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or in an irreversible coma. This is a sensitive issue as this involves debate on ethics and morality. It’s important for us to understand the implications of euthanasia and for society to take a stand on it.

The cultivation of Sweet Sorghum in an energy starved country like India, has great potential of improving both income and lifestyle of farming communities. Sweet Sorghum is a drought tolerant crop and has the potential to be used as food, feedstock and fodder.    Globally, Sugarcane and corn are used as feedstock to produce Bio-Ethanol, which is a bio-fuel used for blending with petrol, to reduce the overall cost of fuel.

It’s been 67 years since India’s independence and our people from one part of India can barely communicate with those in another part. Where have we gone wrong? Has our education policy failed us? Has education as a state subject really been suitable for a country as diverse as ours? Let’s try and revisit this issue.

The problem with vices is that they all start with experimenting which is egged on by curiosity or peer pressure. What starts of as a casual experiment goes on to becoming a regular formality and then before you know it you can’t stay away from it. The vortex sucks you in. So how widespread is social drinking? One can gauge from the fact that the age at which Gen-X is giving it the first shot [...]

So when we have barely got past paying for the last of the EMIs on the current dream house that you plan to own as a your primary home, you start looking for that second home.

This is of course the single most remarkable aspect of life. But it takes courage and humanism of the highest level to help someone extend his or her life by donating a part of one’s own body. This perhaps would be the noblest act that one human [...]

The world recognizes the Indian Army as being one of the best trained and most professional. When I refer to the Army, I refer to all three arms of the defence forces i.e. the Army, the Navy and the Air Force. We all know and recognize the role that our soldiers play in ensuring that India remains protected from external threats while ensuring that the sanctity of the defence services acts as a binding force [...]
