In country like India, where most of the problems are there just because of high population. India will soon take over China in less than a decades time. Even the though the rate of child is slowing down in many parts of the country, we will still be the most populated country in the world with less to consume.

The important point to note here is the quality of population growing, the availability of resources, increase in the footprint and thereby more and more impact to global warming. India is a developing country and yes we need to work more to achieve more in shorter time, but we are trying to achieve the un-achievable as the need will never reduce and the work will never come to an end.

Proposed Solution

Bring the working days down to 5 Days a week instead of 6 days

Before I list down the benefits of 5 day working, let me tell you 5 day working doesn’t mean to rest the remaining 2 days in a week. The below points will explain all:

The first and foremost thing we will achieve is the happy child – I have not explicitly listed the question on school working days, but the most benefited community would be our children. Let’s explore how:

Benefit to children

1.        5 day of school – with lot of possibilities, we can give our kids the following

2.        Less number of days to school to carry more weight

3.        Less number of days to go through the monotonous and routine schedule

4.        Less number of days to worry about home-works

5.        Less number of days to relieve from excessive writing

6.        Less number of days to stress about

7.        More number of days to spend with parents

8.        More number of days to rest

9.        More number of days to explore/ learn new and different things

10.      More number of days to spend with their passion

11.      More number of days to visit new places

12.      More number of days to attend other classes outside of the regular schedule for all round development

Benefit to teachers (especially a lady teachers)

Less number of standing days – in India, the teacher community is mainly consisting of woman teachers, they are the mothers, sisters, wives, etc. and carry more burden and responsibilities at home along with the school job. They also give birth to kids, thereby use their calcium and other strength in order to give a new life. Hence, the time off they will get for the 2 days weekends will be a great help to their overall burden and stress reduction

1.        Less number of days to worry about notorious kids in school

2.        Less number of days to write on board and eat dust from board

3.        Less number of days of scolding from principals

4.        Less number of days of checking copies

5.        Less number of days of sleepless nights

6.        Less number of early morning wake up and prepare food for family

7.        More number of days for the family

8.        More number of days to be relaxed

9.        More number of days to rejuvenate

10.      More number of days to prepare better for next week of study

11.      More number of days to take care of home and family needs

12.      More number of days to educate their own kids

13.      More number of days to be her

Apart from this other communities will also benefit from the 5 day working week, we have already seen this advantage among out IT sector where in spite of 5 days working the workforce is able to give more than what is expected and at the same time able to maintain the work life balance.

In addition to personalized benefits, there are other major inherent benefits to the mankind, people, environment, governments, countries and to the whole world, let’s see how:

5 days working will ensure less traffic on the road, leading to:

1.        Less chaos

2.        Less pollution

3.        Less wastage

4.        Less accidents

5.        Less congestion

6.        Less commute

7.        Less fuel consumption

8.        Less stress

9.        Less noise

10.      Less honking

11.      Less fights on the roads

12.      Less utilization of public resources

13.      Less crowded roads

14.      Less hotter outskirts

15.      Less stress/ less pressure/ less workload will lead to healthier life, and less visits to hospitals and doctors

16.      More time to spend time with family

17.      More time to relax

18.      More time for constructive thinking/ work

19.      More time to self-learning

20.      More time to keep fit

21.      More Greener environment

22.      More life to trees/ flowers/ birds/ bees

23.      More time to spend for community service and nation as well

24.      More time help build healthy environment by planting trees, etc.

On the whole, with this initiative and 1 change, we can target many major problems our country/ our citizens/ our environment is facing.
