He Needs Just 5$ -Do You have it

Help Albus by Just adding 5$ in his recovery Funds To Adopt Albus Please contact Hello Hoomans, My name is Albus and I am an 8 year old Persian cat. I spent the majority of my life in a tiny cage, and I grew up without any friends; hoomans, cats or otherwise. I was raised to give birth to a lot of little babies, but I never got to see them or play with them, and I spent all my days in a cage with a string, where I was barely handled, petted or loved.  I also did not have a litter box to do my business. My breeder would allow me access to a communal sand box when she felt like it, so I didn’t know how to use a regular litter box. I wasn't given a lot of food, and most of it was not very good for me, so I am quite underweight at 3 kg.  I got rescued by a Team of Great Hoomans (street Dog Shelter) who will get me neutered and taken care of by a foster. I was very scared of her when I first arrived, but my foster is a nice lady. She took me to the vet, and the vet gave me some sad news. Apparently I have polycystic kidney disease, which means I don’t get to have as long a life as most cats and I have to be put on renal food, which is expensive and hard to find.. My creatinine levels are high and I’m very anaemic, I am currently on saline to get better. I also will need a laproscopy to be properly neutered, and only two places do it, which is quite pricey. It’s been a few days of many ouchies with injections, but my foster tells me I’m a brave, strong boy and I’ll get through this.  All of this made me very sad, because I didn't believe anyone could love me, and it makes it that much harder for me to get adopted. But I have hope. I have hope that some hooman somewhere will like me the way I am, and give me the love and care I need. I promise I am very quiet, but I do have the occasional “Maow!” (that is my unique way of meowing). . All I really want is to know what it feels like to be adopted, cuddled, and most importantly, loved.  However, I am still quite sick and traumatised from my time at the breeder's and I need all the help I can get. Will you help me? My foster hooman says that you need lots of "munnie" to do all the things I need to become better again. Can you help her get this munnie? My foster hooman and Street Dog Shelter  have given me all they have, and now they need your help. I really want my second chance, so any donation large or small will help me get my life back Donate and save Albus

Petition to IIMs, Smriti Irani

Stop discrimination towards General Engg. Males

Dear All, With over 1.5 million engineers graduating each year in India, a substantial amount stay unemployed upon completion of graduation. Some join an organisation that pays peanuts or way less salary than the work expected out of them. With most employees looking for a way out either for career progression/switch, education (master's) or just due to disgruntlement with the working organisation. These reasons concomitant with low wages pushes the grads to take competitive exams like CAT, XAT etc to pursue their dreams as well as to earn the kind of money they expect. Being engineers, scoring in aptitude exams is a no-worry for most applicants. But then they have to face the wicked system of Indian reservation. Scoring 99 (ranking top 1000 in the country) even is not enough for getting into the premier b-schools (IIM-A,B,C).  There are numerous reservations for caste, subject diversity, gender even, putting engineers heavily on the backfoot. Caste-based reservation being a whole another malcontent for deserving Indian applicants, considering just general population. IIMs call applicants from other branches-Arts, Architecture, etc at 81 percentile (ranked lower than 40000) while highly deserving and hardworking candidates at 99.5 being blatantly refused. More so, with interviews as only judgement criteria for entry into any job or post-grad school, is also not easy for engineers who may easily describe the quantum mechanics universe but not 'tell me about yourself'. This is gross discrimination with the engineers in the country who did not choose the life of engineering and our system does not make it easy on them to take the step towards their dreams. The IIMs need to change the system and mitigate these cascading effects of reservation at every stage. The engineering males tread a tough course already.
