Cancel Kerala state plus one exam. Justice for Kerala plus one students.
The Kerala state government issued the time tableand date for the 11th standard students exam. Thegovernment didn't even give us a single proper onlineclass,but they are conducting exams. Here, about40,000 of 11th standard students haven't any facilitiesfor online classes. But the government is conductingexams by paying no attention towards studentscomplaints, teachers complaints , parents tensions ,opposition parties statements. The government istrying to boost up their image before all other statesand trying to prove that the Kerala's educationdepartment is stronger by didn't even consideringstudents life itself. All other states of India cancelled11th standard exams. But why we didn't get equalitylike all others ?The government also announced our 12th standardclasses from June 7th onwards. Now we are inconfusion about which standard we are studying(11th or 12th). All students are in a mental stress. Allof us are protesting through the social medias but thegovernment is not at all hearing any of it.The state is facing a huge covid crisis nowadays.Around 20000 of patients and 150+ deaths arehappening day by day. In this condition how we willprepare for the exam. We, our parents, our teachersall are so much tensed now. What can we do now?The government is not at all hearing any protest fromstudents as well as the opposition parties as well.The Kerala government is playing a politicalstrategy with students life.
Petition to Narendra Modi, CICSE , CBSE, Education Minister
Cancel ISCE/ISC and CBSE Term 1 exams or Conduct ONLINE
ICSE took the initiative to conduct the 2022 year end exams for class 10 and 12 using the term system. This system however was forced upon us.. and we had no choice. We as students and parents wonder.. What exactly was the point of doing this? That too MONTHS after CBSE announced it... However, we went along with it, hoping for the best. In this announcement ICSE specifically stated the first term exams would be ONLINE + MCQ. This is a safer way of conducting exams which has been adopted my hundreds of universities and schools around the world. This was an amazing move made by CICSE as it, for once, took students health (mental and physical) into the equation. With lakhs of students giving the exam, if given in person, the likelihood of covid-19 infecting the future generation were very high, considering many students have health problems and the infection of covid varies from person to person. Unfortunately, a mere 25 days before the actual exams were to commence, i.e 15th November 2021 - Mid december 2021, the CICSE board released a statement saying that the exams are postponed until further notice. This is not done. The emotional stress CICSE have put its students through since 2020 is astonishing. This batch of students are being treated as test subjects.. Lab rats. They're not seen as people, children, with normal mentalities.. With feelings, with PAIN.. They're seen as numbers, as marks, as nothing but a nuisance it seems. Taking the exams offline (CBSE and CICSE) is a huge mistake. If you need more time to correct the online examination program, please do so.. But risking students lives is absolutely not worth it. Students, parents and people around the country, PLEASE sign this petition, not only for protecting our students, but protecting our country.. We cannot afford to lose our close ones to covid. If the exams of lakhs of students take place offline for CICSE and CBSE, many students will be harmed.. and they may even die. This will place fault on the education boards of the country who do not care about the students. CICSE and CBSE, you cannot prevent covid from happening, especially since it is in the air. Covid kits wont do anything. Students are unvaccinated. Will you take responsibility if an innocent student dies just for marks? You're playing with many student's future's. Stop playing with fire.
Petition to Indian Government, Ministry of health and famiy welfare
Kids vaccine for age group 4-10 years must be given a green as its highly imperative now.
The third wave of the pandemic is knocking on our doors. I am a parent of a 10 year old, and I feel deeply worried for the health and safety of my child, who remains unvaccinated. In this ongoing pandemic situation of despair and uncertainty it has become highly imperative that we give a green to the vaccines for children's as well for the age group between 4 -10 years. The dosage can be light but it’s an essential thing to be introduced to our routines. Every parent feels the same. Its been 2 years kids have been kept aloof from schools and having other recreational activities which has adversely affected their growth and development as well. Moving further if vaccines or boosters will be introduced so we being the parents will be a little assured of sending them out which is highly vulnerable environment. According to the media, vaccines for younger children between the age of 5-11 have been approved in multiple other countries including Singapore and USA. Sign and share my petition now, so that in India too, vaccination for children between the age of 4 -10 begin as soon as possible. A country can only progress overall if they have healthy roots for which the base becomes this "young generation" and "growing generation". The call is our's whether we take the right decision at the right time or keep things ongoing as they are.
Petition to Principal
Cancel the offline exams taking place in a week ,amity international school
Dear Principal This is regarding the final exams being held in school. I hope you are considering online exams as well. Most of us parents are concerned about the safety of our ward. Last year also when the offline exams were conducted there were a few Covid cases in the school of which parents were not informed accordingly and no one is willing to risk their own as well as their children’s lives.following are our concerns - 1. Living with grandparents who have heart conditions , it is a matter of life and death for them, exposure of the virus can be proven very risky. 2. Amity International School Noida has a huge population as compared to any other school and thus there is a lot of exposure. 3. Even last year during Pre Boards many students got infected and school didn't inform other students and families to isolate for personal safety. We understand the need for offline exams but not at the cost my child’s or my family’s safety. 4.You must be aware that still many students are not fully vaccinated and many have not even taken the first dose due to prior infection making them even more vulnerable to contracting Covid. Making them take offline exams is extremely unfair and inconvenient.

Ban smoking in apartment complexes
My neighbor smoking in the room, bathroom or balcony of the flat says there is no law against smoking in the house. This may be true for an independent house. But how can a flat be considered as independent house? My young children and elderly and even asthma patients are either suffocated with closed windows or suffer from passive smoking unknowingly. Work from home and online schools etc., have kept us stuck to home. Residents who decide not to take breaks for smoking in the open area without caring about neighbors who expect some fresh air are causing a serious health hazard. Hotels, Offices and restaurants have clear guidelines on smoking and non-smoking rooms. Apartments must provide necessary facilities for smoking and non-smoking flats without causing any clash or declare the flats to be smoke free. Local police do not want to interfere as they don't see it as offence. Associations ignore it in the name of social acceptance. Support me and other non-smokers who suffer silently with smoke or suffocation! Thank you.

Amend laws to give adoptive mothers equal maternity benefits
I am an adoptive mother of 2 children. In September 2017, our lives upturned when we became parents of two children overnight. When my children came home, my daughter was 5 years old and my son, 2. Here they were clutching onto each other for dear life because they were with 2 complete strangers who were speaking languages they didn’t understand, and in a strange house in a new city which had to grow into their home. We had to get to know each other - our likes and dislikes, win each other’s hearts, build each other’s trust, learn to communicate our feelings and emotions with each other despite language barriers, share our secrets, appreciate new food and create a brand new family. And my then employer gave me a meagre 6 weeks to do this mammoth task. While a biological mother would spend more than 4 times this time with the child. Why shouldn’t I get the same access to my ‘new-born’ children to create from nothing a feeling of a home for them in our family? That's because the current Maternity Benefits Law discriminates between mothers who are biological and those who are adoptive like me, even though we love our children as much and will go to the ends of the earth to protect them. The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 today grants maternity leave of 12 weeks only for adoptive mothers who have adopted a child that is less than 3 months old. This means that adoptive mothers who adopted one or more children older than 3 months do not get any maternity benefit from the State. We are left to the mercy of our employers when we choose to build a family through adoption. Why don’t children older than 3 months deserve to get love and care when they come into a new home? So I urge you to please sign my petition and support me so that we can together demand from (i) the Ministry of Women and Child Development, (ii) the Ministry of Labour and Women Employment and (iii) the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, that the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 be amended to give equal maternity leave (of 26 weeks) to adoptive mothers, irrespective of the age of the child.

Release 14 year old Pakistani child Asmad Ali who accidentally crossed over to India
A Pakistani child named Asmad Ali belonging to the border village of Tatrinote accidentally crossed the Line of Control while he was running after his pet pigeon and crossed over to India. The incident happened on November 25th, 2021. The child was first detained by the Indian Army and later handed over to the Jammu and Kashmir police who filed and FIR against him and presented him before the Juvenile Justice Board in Poonch. Asmad is now at a home for juvenile offenders in Ranbir Singh Pora. It has already been more than two months that Asmad is stuck in India away from his home. Asmad studies in class 8th at the Stars School in Tatrinote. Asmad's maternal grandparents who are his care takers are very sad by his arrest in India and his maternal uncle Arbab Ali has made a humanitarian appeal to the Indian authorities to release him and send him back home. The Indian side has always been generous in the past and has sent back Pakistani kids who have accidentaly crossed the Line of Control. Moreover, the Indian Army and the Jammu and Kashmir Police have not found any national security implications in the case and the FIR registered in the case also does not include any sections related to National Security threats. I request the Indian authorities to release Asmad Ali on humanitarian grounds and send him back to his maternal grand parents in Tatrinote Villagrle. Sign my petition to pursue the Indian authorities to release Asmad Ali and send him back home. The media in both India and Pakistan have covered Asmad Ali's case. You can read this article in The Logical Indian to know more about him.

Broadcast Child Helpline Number 1098 On All TV Channels
Do you know that most of the abusers in cases of child sexual abuse are family members, relatives and acquaintances? We are all under a lockdown. I can't even imagine what most children, who are victims of sexual and physical abuse, are going through every day under this lockdown. Under normal circumstances, it isn’t considered safe for the abused child to stay at home as it might lead to further abuse. But, the lockdown has made it far more difficult. The support networks have broken down. The children do not know what to do and suffer silently. The incidents have already seen an increase and if we do nothing, they will keep on increasing. We cannot let this happen. Most of the children inside their homes do not even know how to ask for help. They are not even aware that the child helpline number is 1098, leave alone how to protect themselves! No one believes them, and so we need to step up and do something now. The need of the hour is to ensure that the children suffering from violence and abuse, which is inflicted upon them by their own family members/relatives/care takers, are at least aware of the helpline number. The only way we can do it by ensuring that the information about 1098 reaches EVERY CHILD. Please sign my petition asking the government to immediately take the following steps: - Ensure that the awareness about 1098 is spread by broadcasting on television channels, including cartoon channels; - Youtube should also carry the same advertisements. Please show your support and sign this petition so that our children do not suffer silently. This lockdown shouldn’t become difficult and fatal for them.
