Save Indian farmers by creating a portable online trading platform

                                            VOTE FOR THIS PROJECT Imagine working hard for 4-5 months, battling against forces like nature, pests and wild animals to generate a precious produce that brings with it hopes of wealth, expectations and dreams...only to see that produce being sold for extremely low prices and being not wanted by any buyer and then realize that the crop they had planted 5 months ago was a wrong choice. Agriculture sector in India remains largely disorganized and inefficient due to lack of modern technologies and old-fashioned method of auction trading. Farmers are unaware about the market dynamics and make uninformed decisions when itcomes to sowing crops. This leads to imbalance in supply-demand of agriculture commodities. The proposed system uses data mining techniques to provide farmers with daily market rate predictions and right crop sowing suggestions at the right time. The system suggests crops which shall be in demand at their maturity and also provides a smart trading platform for selling the commodities to institutional buyers. The method involves farmers and constitutional buyers to make profiles on this platform through their cell phones and uploading their real time crop data and nature of trade respectively. The system then compares this data with the national consumption values obtained from interpolated historical data, to provide accurate crop suggestions with respect to future demand. This method further involves day wise market rate prediction of agriculture commodities, using K-NN algorithm. The predictions are based on the amounts of commodities bought into the market each day. These are tracked from the trades taking place through the system’s time advanced online trading platform. Thus this system aims to decrease the gap between supply and demand and stabilize market rates. Designed for India's culture The system uses smartphones and 2G internet as the only infrastructure Easily deploy-able and easy to maintain Executable in a low budget High scope of scaling Huge Impact by decreasing wastage & stabilizing market rates

Mandatory Check at Liquor Serving Joints itself to discourage DRINK & DRIVE

     When we go with family or friends at a bar and restaurant or go to a pub to get a drink and catch up with friends - because these places are made available to us legally - we dont go with the intention of getting drunk and to become a social menace. But problem arises when we think that we are not too drunk to drive. People usually leave by their own vehicles back home sometimes in groups or sometimes alone trying to evade cops by sneaking away through service roads or avoiding check points underestimating their ability to cause grievous injuries to someone or to even ones own self. Once on the road behind a wheel no one knows what will happen next. Its only destiny thereafter that takes over.      The management of the pub or the Bar or the restaurant is well aware of your situation since they are the people serving drinks to you. If we can make it their prerogative to allow only those who are under the permissible limit to get behind the wheels and also ask them to encourage the drunk to board a taxi instead we can curb drink and drive cases to a large extent. And also by doing this we can avoid some corrupt cops who are more interested in filling their pockets rather than road safety. Once in the hands of the police one is completely unaware of their rights and is subject to unimaginable humiliation and wrong intimidation and also physical assault at times.      The main purpose of the DONT DRINK & DRIVE is SAFETY. I believe along with the person who drinks it is also the responsibility of the people who serve it to assure road safety. With this step we can drastically bring down drink and drive cases as well as corruption related to the same at the initial level itself thus avoiding lots of bad blood. I urge you to support me in this solution or even suggest a solution to 'STOP DRINK AND DRIVE' at the initial level itself!

Bring back 2-year-old girl who has been violently kidnapped and smuggled to Mumbai

On the 29th of September 2016 my 2-year- old daughter Insiya was violently kidnapped from Amsterdam (European Union) and smuggled to Mumbai, India. Without her Dutch passport. Insiya is a Dutch citizen and holds only the Dutch nationality and passport. On the day of the kidnap three men, professional kidnappers, barged into my home in my absence and brutally took Insiya while my mother was babysitting.The Dutch Police was alarmed right after the kidnap and they issued an immediate AMBER Alert for her. In an instant it became clear that Shehzad Hemani, my ex-husband, is the mastermind behind the violent kidnap. For many years I had been trapped in an emotional and physical abusive marriage with him. In 2015 I finally gathered my courage to file for divorce and put an end to his abuse. But even after filing for divorce it just didn’t stop; it became worse and he threatened to kill me multiple times. He placed 6 GPS trackers under my car, hired people to follow me and kept threatening to kidnap my daughter. That is why the Dutch Court decided to give Insiya’s custody to me. An official Interpol Arrest Warrant has been issued for Shehzad Hemani.The Dutch and European authorities question how the kidnapper could escape and cross multiple borders. This is very concerning. I haven’t talked to my daughter since she has been kidnapped. Despite my countless efforts, the kidnapper will not let me talk to my daughter. Together with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Government we are trying our utmost best to get Insiya back. Every morning until night I am working to get her back. I am trying everything. I will not stop until I can hold my daughter in my arms again.I have reached out to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs multiple times, but so far I haven’t got any response.Ever since Insiya was born I have been the only one taking care of her. I will not stop until I get justice, because it is Insiya’s fundamental right to be with her mother. Insiya is illegal in India. Insiya is taken hostage and gravely traumatized. For her wellbeing and safety Insiya needs to be back with her mother! The purpose of this petition is to reach out to the authorities of the Indian Government, especially the Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj. So that she can collaborate with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to return Insiya back to The Netherlands. I keep faith, but I can’t do it without your help. So please support and sign this Petition. We really need both governments to collaborate and take action. SIGN NOW and save an innocent child! Your support makes a huge difference in my life. Thank you so much, Nadia @NadiaRashid20

Justice for Induja who was burnt alive in Chennai by a stalker

I am Shanmugam Govindasamy. My daughter S. Induja, a resident of Chennai was burnt alive allegedly by a former classmate and stalker named Akash. Induja was set on fire at the doorstep of her home in the Adambakkam neighborhood of Chennai. This incident happened around 8:45 PM on Monday, November 13, 2017, at the victim’s residence located on 7th street, Saraswathi Nagar, Adambakkam, Chennai. My wife and Indjua’s mother Ms. Renuka and my another daughter Nivedita tried to save Induja from the fire and in that process got severe burn injuries (50% and 20% respectively). Their situation is still critical and both of them are suffering from unbearable pain. They are undergoing treatment in an intensive care unit in Chennai. In Last one year in Tamil Nadu, nearly 6 young women lost their lives for the same reasons due to action such as acid throwing, stabbing, setting fire, etc. In those cases the culprits use their influence to avoid punishment, setting bad precedents for others. We have seen how much Nirbhaya from New Delhi went through. We don’t want any more women to suffer at the hands of such psychopaths who do not deserve to live in this society. We must use the fullest extent of the law to get maximum punishment to the murderer of my daughter Induja so that others do not dare do such crimes. The following articles in reputed media will provide additional information: We request your office to kindly help my daughter Induja get justice. Govindasamy
