Petition to National Skill Development Corporation, HRD Ministry
Better Primary Education and Skill Development in India
Right to primary education is a fundamental right in India. It is the duty of the Indian government to provide education to every boy and girl up to the primary stage. Primary education will enable a child to learn to read and write. It will enable him to use his vernacular language and learn the simple rules of arithmetic. But this system is clearly not sufficient and has certain loopholes. Honing skills and holistic development is of paramount importance in today's day and age- where there is cut throat competition. But unfortunately, the government aided primary education goes nowhere beyond the set curriculum which ends up making students merely carbon copies of each other. There is a vast gap between the primary schooling in an international board versus that of a government school. The students of international boards have got a varied choice of subjects. Moreover, there is focus on several extra curricular activities for holistic development. On the other hand, the free elementary education is sub par in many rural places of India. The infrastructure i.e. libraries, classrooms, sanitation is of no quality in these schools. The faculty let alone the facilities is pitiable in many cases. Recently there had been many videos resurfacing the interweb in which a teacher was teaching gibberish to students in the name of alphabet. The government needs to make the job of a primary teacher more attractive by increasing the pay so that it will attract competent men for the job. Government should bring in uniformity in the curriculum and standards of the primary education, irrespective of the board because we're referring to the common youth of India. For our country to progress holistically, we are in the utmost need of skill based approach and better primary education. The skills in children must be explored, trained and perfected; and this needs to begin in primary schooling. So join me in requesting the HRD Ministry of India to improve the current plight of primary education in our country.
Petition to Municipal Commissioner
Petitioning Social Initiative 'De-Concretise- Save Trees save Mother Nature’
Navi Mumbai Municipal Commissioner / Tree Authority, De-concretise Remaining TREES before they die of Concrete, Plaster, Tar or Paver-blocks around the base of trees which suffocates and kills them! Sign the petition to join our campaign in saving such trees. The trees around us are extremely important and have always been necessary for improving the human condition and their very existence. Without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. We, the humans are causing irreparable damage to our earth. One such damage is done by CONCRETISATION of area around the trees. Concretization is causing havoc to the very existence and growth of this very source and supporter of life on earth. Concretization has many detrimental effects on biodiversity. It causes immense damage to the trees, soil, climate, living organisms and habitat of tree dwellers. Navi Mumbai was once a greener city with tall n healthy trees. Every road had beautiful Canopy. Trees had enough space to grow. All along on both the sides of road had muddy area with enough plantation. But as time passed. Navi Mumbaikars’s are witnessing massive destruction. On the verge of becoming a Smart City, Development and Destruction is going hand in hand. We are more inclined towards making a Concrete City. Navi Mumbai once a cool city is now witnessing drastic climate change. Footpath with paver-blocks and Concrete has replace the muddy lane. In doing so our civics body failed to follow National Green Tribunal Guideline to keep space of 6 X 6 feet space around the base of the tree. Instead we are witnessing each and every tree on Footpath, Divider, Gardens, Hills, all along the Nallahs, Jogging tracks are chocked to death with either cement or paver-block. It not only blocks the seepage of rain water but the soil too has no space to breathe. Which in turn had been responsible for the death of innumerable trees in Navi Mumbai. Remaining are on the verge of dying. Even after repeated request to our civics body to release the trees from being chocked by paver blocks & concrete has fallen on deaf ears. Neither any of our ward representatives have shown any interest. When concretization work is carried out neither Contractor nor any of the officer from Corporation is seen on site. Trees give us shade, clean air, they are home to varied species of birds, reptiles, squirrels. They give us rain, help in augmenting ground water resource. We need to stand by our TREES and urge our Navi Mumbai Commissioner to de-concretise and prevent the trees from any further concretization. With citizens support we have started a drive to make our Navi Mumbai a Green City. Your signature is extremely important to strengthen our campaign. http://epaperbeta.timesofindia.com/Article.aspx?eid=31840&articlexml=Online-petition-to-NMMC-by-green-activist-12032016012024 https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009849965212&sk=photos&collection_token=100009849965212%3A2305272732%3A69&set=a.251512751853722.1073741834.100009849965212&type=3&pnref=story https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009849965212&sk=photos&collection_token=100009849965212%3A2305272732%3A69&set=a.287034554968208.1073741838.100009849965212&type=3 https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100009849965212&sk=photos&collection_token=100009849965212%3A2305272732%3A69&set=a.288620644809599.1073741839.100009849965212&type=3 https://youtu.be/cIyfhBVhYZI
Petition to Piyush Goyal, Piyush Goyal, Maneka Gandhi, Suresh Prabhu
Implement disabled friendly measures in Indian railways
I've been groped and manhandled three separate times by porters. They were helping me board the train because Indian trains are not wheelchair accessible. I am a disabled woman living in Mumbai who loves to travel. I have had to wear a diaper because I couldn’t use the train bathroom. And when I needed to change that diaper, I had no privacy and had to wait for hours for the lights to go off at night The railways treat the disabled as a piece of luggage. This needs to stop! Sign my petition and join me in asking the railway minister and the Prime Minister to implement disabled friendly measures in Indian railways. According to The Disability Rights bill, there need to be facilities available for those with disabilities. The Railway Ministry has been talking of making trains disabled friendly but in reality, we are still humiliated every single time because of poor implementation. My fight is to ensure human dignity for the disabled. I am asking the authorities for some basic things everyone takes for granted- Accessible bathrooms with proper space inside the bathroom, clean and higher toilets, low sinks so we can easily wash our hands. Accessible coaches for the disabled in all trains, ideally one for each class. Enough space between berths so it is easy to fit a standard size wheelchair between the berths and we can shift onto our seats when needed. Curtains around the berths for when we need to change. Often, I've needed to change my clothes and the berths are too small for me to role around to change my clothes, as well as have no privacy. Proper infrastructure to cross railroads if needed to change platforms. Beside these infrastructure related demands, I also want an attitudinal shift in the way the disabled are treated: Sensitise people to let those with disabilities board first as the general public normally does not care about our well being. Everyone is in a rush to get to their seats. Sensitise abled-bodied persons to not board the handicapped compartment, especially in local trains. We often see that in the local train, those who are not disabled will climb in. That isn't fair. Train the drivers and TCs to halt the train till a handicapped passenger has finished boarding, especially for local trains. The local train only stops for two minutes and with all the crowd, it is very difficult to board. I want to sit down with PM Narendra Modi or the Railway Minister Mr. Suresh Prabhu and talk to them about the difficulties faced by those whom are disabled. Sign my petition and ask PM Modi and Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu to implement measures to make the Indian railways disabled friendly.
Petition to @Pradeep yadav IAS
Introduce Effective Mental Health Modules for Students in 200 Schools #MentalHealthMatters
Meera is a 13-year-old student at a government school of Pudukkottai, Tamil Nadu. She has been nicknamed ‘water-tap’ by her classmates. They continuously made fun of her for urinating inside the classroom, everyday. "Neither Meera nor her family knew, what she is going through is a mental illness.” When I came to know about this from her teacher, I was curious to know whether she did this on purpose. I had a face to face meeting with Meera. After a long conversation she broke down. She mustered up the courage to speak about how her step-brother sexually harassed her every night. This came as a rude shock to me. She did not feel safe in her own home, did not know whom to talk to, and felt helpless and broken. “Why did Meera keep silent? Did Meera not trust her teachers to seek help and share this with them? What kind of a support system would be appropriate for this?” I kept thinking about these questions, and looked into this issue further. Would recruiting a psychiatrist for every school help many children like Meera? A psychiatrist could provide a temporary solution but what about the problems that she is going to face as she grows up? If not addressed in time, the scars of this can remain with these children for life. Nothing can be a better option that to equip these children with skills to protect themselves. An “effective mental health literacy" module, through art based therapy, in Government Schools would help the students. Starting with a pilot project, the module would consist of two hours of class per week for 8th-12th standard children. An effective mental health module would be a way to equip Meera with all that she needs to fight on her own, in all kind of circumstances, incase if she fails to get an external support. Meera eventually spoke up. There could be so many other Meeras who are silent because they don’t have an idea of whom to reach out for help! Sign my petition asking to introduce ‘effective’ mental health modules for students & teachers in 200 government schools of Pudukkottai. Support our Meeras! Your signatures will help them get a safe and brighter future. #MentalHealthMatters #BreakTheSilence #LetOurGirlsSpeakPicture courtesy : IndiaGlitz
Petition to AICTE UGC GOVT UNIVERSITY, UGC, AICTE, UNIVERSITY,GOVT
I earnestly request the AICTE/UGC/GOVT/UNIVERSITY to strictly implement biometric attendan
Dear friends, In Andra Pradesh majority of the PG colleges are functioning like distance education institutions, faculty are asked to do admissions, they need not to teach.because these colleges don't have class work. Students need Not write mid exams, not required to do projects, need not submit assignments they simply give away full marks for the above. They need not required to pay University fee, transportation fee.hostel not required for student because he/she not coming to college. They have agreement fee for everything. Quality of education is already dead. Hence it must be revived by intervening the concerned authorities.
Petition to UK Government, home office, UK Parliament, Boris Johnson MP
UK graduate work visa to be available to 2020 international graduates and beyond!
Dear UK government, It is great to hear that you have introduced a new graduate work visa policy for international students which gives us 2 years to find work. I am glad but am confused as to how the UK home office is only offering it to students starting their university in 2020/21. What about students finishing their degree in 2020, and undergraduate students finishing in 2021 (but have started in 2017 or 2018)? All these students will have valid tier 4 visa when this policy will come into effect. However, it won't be until 3 years (for undergraduates) and another year for graduates to reap the benefits of such policy. Do you then recommend undergraduates and graduates joining this year to wait another year and apply for 2020/21 entry? I urge the relevant stakeholders to bring this policy in effect for students holding tier 4 when it is introduced. To my fellow international students: What do you reckon? Wouldn't it be more viable to take a year off and start uni? If you want to help, please spread the message on social media. Here's my twitter: https://twitter.com/mystudent9 Support your international peers!
