Few hours from now, the new government at the centre led by Narendra Modi of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going to take oath of office with an unprecedented initiative on the external front- inviting the head of states of SAARC countries. Undoubtedly, this will have far reaching impact on internal policy formulation in days ahead by this non-congress government.

Next few days would be extremely important and defining for the country. As such, it is pertinent to remember the former prime minister of India and the leader of Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan fame, Lal Bahadur Shastri at this crucial juncture to know his perception on major issues – Governance, Development, National Integration - concerning country's well-being. This will help the architects of next Govt. at the Centre in finalising the right agenda and formulating the effective action plan for next sixty months.

Political observers are of the opinion that this being the election year for electing Lok Sabha members to form the next government at the Centre, it is but natural for the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) to woo millions of young voters by pushing through the approval of National Youth Policy, 2014 by the Union Cabinet. As a natural outcome, this NYP will replace the existing policy of 2003. As per the 2011 census, the youth population between the age group 15-29 stands at 330 million and this sizable chunk constitute more than 27.5 % of country’s population.

The day has again arrived for large section of political class to wear white khadi dress with a cap and to rush to a Mahatma Gandhi statue, of course in a big vehicle to utter few parroted words with some crocodile tears in their eyes to show the onlookers, particularly media persons that they are the true believers, followers and torch bearer of Gandhian philosophy.

The nation is celebrating the 64th anniversary of Republic Day amid so much of political chaos, particularly in nation’s capital, first because of unprecedented political demonstration and dharna by an elected Chief Minister along with his cabinet colleagues and supporters and also because of the rising political temperature in the wake of ensuing Lok Sabha election sometime before May, 2014 to pave the way for formation of a new government at the Centre.

The country’s first all-women 'Bharatiya Mahila Bank', headed by a woman - Usha Ananthasubramanian, came into existence on 19th November, coinciding with the 96th birthday of former Prime Minister late Indira Gandhi.

Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time - Rabindranath Tagore

As per newspaper reports, CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) found that schools were assigning too many projects in each subject to individual students which compelled students to do these projects at home. In a letter sent to schools, CBSE said, "Artificial subject boundaries impede contextualized learning and deprive students of exploring the interconnectedness of different forms of knowledge. Moreover the transfer of knowledge from one subject to other can most effectively be demonstrated and strengthened through multidisciplinary projects".
