Free Education For Children of India's Martyrs

Martyrs' families are losing their sole bread earner in order to save our lives. We can lead safe, secure lives because of them. If Indian government leaders, or any Indian is sleeping peacefully then the credit goes only to these soldiers. It is the Indian government's foremost duty to help the children of India's martyrs graduate, i.e. provide them free of cost education. Their sacrifice is priceless. These kids have no one to support their dreams, they've lost their fathers so that India could be safe. Providing a one time compensation is not enough, rather it is insulting their sacrifice. These children deserve constant support in order to give wings to their dreams.

Passport for my daughter with mother´s name

I am a single parent. My Husband abandoned my daughter and me when she was born just because she was a girl. He never looked back and doesn’t even care whether we’re dead or alive.  Recently, I applied for the passport of my daughter. My daughter doesn’t want her father’s name on the document. Our application was denied and we were told that both names are required. My daughter did her schooling with my name only. Her voter ID card, Aadhar card and bank account have my name. Why was only the passport denied?  My daughter and I were forced to go through mental agony and torture. We tried to convince the passport officer, wrote letters, met senior officers but our request was denied. In the end we were forced to include his name. Every time my daughter looks at her Passport, she sees the name of a person who hurt her, who abandoned her. Single fathers and mothers face several hardships. Often there is a traumatic story behind the reason we are single. We have to work extra-hard to support our children and be there for them. The judiciary has given progressive judgments that say that the Father’s name is not required. My humble request is for the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Home Affairs to look into this matter and help single parents - fathers and mothers, so that they don’t have to go through this agony.

.@SushmaSwaraj @MEAQuery @passportsevamea: Help me get a passport for my minor son

Dear Madam, After a lot of failed attempts since past 3 years consistently; I have decided to write this petition in order to get permission granted to acquire a passport for my son. I am a single parent of a 10 year old boy. I was married to an abusive man who did not spare me even during my pregnancy. I some how managed to come back to my parents home after 3 months while pregnant with my unborn child and firmly opted not to go to that man ever again. To which he retaliated by filing for the custody of my baby and harassed me for 6 years. Despite all his slanders and attempts to harass me I won the case since I was abused and also because my ex had not given any child support, maintenance or alimony. The man I was married to lives in Dubai currently. Its been 4 years now, he has not gained access to visit my son. Now he is married for the 3rd time and has a family of his own. He has no contact with my son what so ever, nor does he make any effort to visit him. Kindly consider my petition to help me get a passport for my son, it would mean a lot to the little one. Thank You.

Help my disabled daughters get passports

For 40 years we have been taking care of our disabled daughters. I am 70 and my husband is 75. We don’t know how much longer we can take care of them. My younger daughter R. Sarvani  is 90% disabled and cannot move. The elder daughter R. Gayathridevi is 72% disabled, when she walks, she often slips and falls and needs constant assistance. Our sons are settled in the US and Canada. They would like to take care of their sisters when we cannot. Unfortunately we have not been able to apply for a passport due to my daughters’ severe physical disabilities..   The nearest Passport Seva Kendra is 110 km away from our residence and my daughters have to be personally present in order to apply. Travelling by bus or train is very hard for them. Due to our old age, my husband and me are also not able to help them travel. It is our humble and earnest appeal to Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs to help us get passports for our daughters without insisting their physical presence at Passport Seva Centre distantly located. I have faith that Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs will listen to our request and help us get passports. Sign our petition and help us get the passports for our daughters. - Subbalakshmi & RS Rallapalli

1 crore + Govt Job + Kids Education to the families of martyrs in forces

We see very often the people in forces be it Army or Police sacrifice their lives for our safety. Every time there is an event like this, we feel anger , sad, protest , comments on FB, Twitter, have lunch discussions and then slowly life moves on. We forget the incidence and move on.  The most hurt is the family of the brave heart who sacrificed the life for our country. They have to lead a life of misery with little pension or fund money or the amount which is declared by the govt for the martyrs. When we as citizens are ready to spend money on swach bharat by giving extra as taxes, we are ready to give gifts and amounts to the players who win in different competition representing country.  Why are we not ready to pay a amount to the family of brave heart so that they are not miserable financially. We request the Prime Minister of India to declare a policy of Policy of 1 crore + Govt Job + Kids Education to the families of martyrs in forces who do Supreme Sacrifice for the country in any of the forces in India.   Thanks!!

Single-mother's plight to get passport for minor child without father's consent

I applied for son's passport in June 2015. Visited PSK twice with necessary documents but at the end of 2nd appointment was told to bring an affidavit (annex G) attested by first class judicial magistrate. The time, money and energy spent in getting the affidavit attested has been fruitless! Visited both Dy. Commissioner's and Addl. Dy Commissioner's offices for attestation and have returned empty-handed every time! I was unofficially told that no passport-related documents are being attested by officials for reasons beyond my comprehension. Called the passport helpline and was told to instead submit annex H with spouse's consent. I have had a traumatic time since June 2015 and it doesn't seem to have an end! It looks like I may not be able to make a passport for my child ever and this is a loss on so many levels - educational, professional and recreational. Since my divorce in 2014, my ex-husband has chosen not to keep in touch with us or involve himself in the child's upbringing. I respect his decision because by the grace of God, I am in a position to take care of my child without spousal support. I have not claimed alimony and have ensured that my child is nurtured in a holistic manner. Divorce order states that I have sole custody and am legal guardian. It is also likely that my child has forgotten his father's face. Why is the passport application then being treated as one where the father has not given consent? (My first communication to him since my divorce in 2014, requesting for consent, has been met with silence). I am at wits end because I have had to forgo international professional opportunities for self and educational opportunities for my child. Even on a recreational front, I have not been able to plan for international holidays for want of his passport. Every time my son mentions that it would be a great experience to meet Santa Claus in the North Pole or  visit Legoland in Germany, I have stopped short of shutting myself up and crying. I feel that helpless because I am failing not only as a mother but also, from a legal standpoint, as his guardian and one who has his sole custody. All I seek is for the passport authorities to consider the fact that I am a single mother and  the sole custodian of my child (divorce decree) and process his passport application with only my signature. If as a mother, I do not have the best interests of my child at heart, who would?!

I Love my country and I Love my Indian Army. I am 25 years old and I want UPSC should extend the age of CDS and CAPF Examinations to 27 years because many worthy candidates or aspirants will be benefited from this decision. When UPSC can extend the age of civil services examination to 32 years and SSC can do upto 30 years, then why not UPSC CDS and CAPF ? Indian Armed forces has entry up to 27 years for TGC(technical graduate scheme), AEC(Army education corp) and JAG. There are thousands of youngsters like me, who wants to serve the Armed Forces with great honesty and loyalty but due to age factor we cannot apply anymore. Yes, we did faced SSB many times but still the feeling is same as it was in childhood of wearing the uniform and to serve my great nation. Please feel the passion which we Youths have for country. Please sign my petition. Make it happen. JAI HIND TO ALL THE VETERANS AND MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN
