We have gone a long way with this blog and have written a lot of posts for the Not-so- Political Series. From excruciating topics like data, policy decisions and worker ‘s rights to voter’s behavior, climate change and elections we have tried our hand at various topics. The knowledge obtained while working for these posts was fresher than the dramas that happen on news shows.
So far, readers, we have successfully completed 10 posts for this series.
- It could be someone or you
- Experts advices..
- Still here to Stay
- Old crisis in the Neighbourhood
- Woman a citizen and worker
- Hearing more from the UN right now?
- Climate change
- Could you please wait one more second?
- An Awakening, A Wake up Call
Both of us started this series to just write about voters and elections but soon we both tested ourselves with other issues as well! And navigated class 9th along.😃
We recently talked about the recent passage of terrifying draconian laws on the post Could you please wait one more second? and Hong Kong is now bracing itself for a hardline leader John Lee who recently won the elections in Hong Kong. Sad to say he was elected by a process controlled chiefly by Beijing.
In this post we also talked about the terrifying sedition law of our history textbooks, still sitting safely in our Constitution. The Supreme Court of India very recently questioned the government ‘s reliance and abuse of the sedition law and proposed to examine it! This is a little light in darkness.
Old crisis in the Neighborhood- Probably we coined this post very well because a Russian- Ukrainian War taking place in Europe is taking our eyes off the situation in Afghanistan. Taliban is showing its true colours by imposing restrictions on girls education, and telling them to wear head to toe clothing in public– a swift turn from there past promises to gain legitimacy.
Woman a citizen and worker– We discussed the plight of ASHA worker who formed the backbone of Indian healthcare to reach the rural areas and still do now. Recently the Supreme Court of India upholded the right to gratuity for workers and helpers.
War and UN
And the moment has arrived when we again turn back to the Russia Ukrainian War which is bringing new turns and surprises each day. We are hearing a lot of urgent statements from both sides of the war. We both wrote about how big countries did not have to justify their decisions while vetoing (to cancel) any decision at the UN in the light of Russia vetoing decisions at the UN.
But the UNSC recently approved a measure that requires countries like U.S, Russia, China France and Germany tojustify use of veto power!
And remember the ending lines of our post Climate change?
Rain Rain go away. A sun come, if it may.....
The sun has arrived and it is hear to saunter more. It has brought shocking heatwaves throughout our country, a reminder that amidst all the chaos, climate change still remains to be solved…
So what remains now?
We will carry on this series. This post is dedicated to all the readers and everyone who supported us with their lovely comments and read our posts. Do you guys have any suggestions? What do you think about the continuation of this series? A little boring? or interesting?
