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.

Caste Based Reservation System should be removed.
The purpose of reservation is to get rid of caste barrier and caste discrimination. It acts as an antibiotic for caste discrimination.The word reservation is a misnomer. The appropriate word for it used in the Indian constitution is ‘Representation’. It is not given to anyone in his individual capacity. It is given to individual as a representative of the underprivileged community. Don't divide students on basis of their caste, divide them on basis of their knowledge. There are as well students who despite being from the upper caste cannot afford to study and on top of that reservation makes it worse. Mostly, when paying the tuition fees in schools and colleges, their annual income should be taken into consideration and not the caste. Because not all URs are well to do and not all minors are poverty stricken. So say no to reservation in higher education and jobs.

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.

STAND UP, If you ever peed sitting down on a western toilet seat wet with someone’s urine! UTI, kidney stones, peeing standing up are merely the tip of the iceberg of trouble that stares at women when faced with dirty and wet western toilets in public spaces. Imagine a woman with a rash or herpes having used it unwillingly. The brush that cleaned it having taken a dip in the holy water. The poor seat well-irrigated by well-meaning but not-well-aimed men. Okay, Big Data world. Right? So here we go! According to a source, over 45000 harmful bacteria reside on an average western toilet seat. I’ll spare more data. It’s disgusting. The solution is pretty simple. Indian squatting toilet. No touching business! Very touching topic! O the Bureau of Indian Standards! the PMO! the Health Minister!

We want two lakhs for running our Balwadi school
We believe in providing a joyful, fun filled learning environment to the children from lower income groups. These students are mostly introduced to schools with a dull infrastructure, no proper light, dim walls and no attention given to hygiene. Along with volunteers, we enter these spaces to give voices to these walls by painting bright colorful murals. The walls become a teacher, friend and ears for these students to communicate in the school with each other. At the end, the children should enter the school space happily and feel proud of the space where they are studying. The objectives of the project are to:•Creating safe spaces for children where they can enjoy, explore and achieve educational objectives to the best of their POTENTIAL.•Create a learning environment for the children.Working on providing basic infrastructure to the students.•To create a paradigm shift in education and increase the participation of parents by empowering them.

Instill Necessary Safety and Security Measures at Bahria University Karachi Campus
Assalamualiakum Wa Rehmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu, In light of the recent student tragedies in universities across Pakistan, we the students of BUKC respectfully implore the Director General Rear Admiral Mukhtar Khan, Director Commodore Muzammil Hussain, HODs, and all other related authorities to address the safety hazards and security failures across campus and take proper measures to rectify them. The following list includes basic student requirements, safety and security measures that need to be instilled or improved upon at Bahria University Karachi Campus: Need for Emergency exits/ stairwells Need for functioning cafeteria Need for internal passage to university from the parking lot for students, especially females Preplanning of schedule, routes, transportation, and other means for students in case of a match or roads closing down. If the university is open for some time, dismissal should occur an hour well before blockades begin and it should be ensured that students, parents, and drivers have alternate route get home safe (not having to walk long distances or being forced out of the gates) Strict implementation of rules against harassment (unwanted comments, gestures, honking, wolf-whistlings, catcalling, exposure, stalking, persistent sexual advances, and touching) from students, teachers, or staff members Hygiene check of cafeterias and food ingredient check Open gutters and sewage water being used on plants across campus should be stopped/regulated. This results in pollution, increased number mosquitos on still water, and disease More bathrooms in every department and cleaner ones (please do a toilet count). In IPP, there is only ONE seated toilet available for ALL female students in the girl’s lavatory. Teachers/staff have locked and taken one for personal use when they already have a seperate lavatory. Third squat latrine is inefficient as it is obsolete and difficult for students to use Need for fans in main lobbies of every floor at IPP (where students are often told to wait if classes are full or not yet open). It becomes extremely hot and congested and students are often stopped from opening nearby windows Fee challans given on time, with proper time given to the student to pay fees. There is a service fee charged, yet unprofessional and late services with numerous technical and management issues Regulation of prices of snacks at the tuc shop. They charge 10-20 Rs. more than the original cost of the product. There are no fixed prices Classes should be well-maintained. Air-Conditioners should be repaired and maintained on a monthly basis (especially for BBA - Quaid Block) Need for a separate smoking area (smokers end up collecting outside main gate and this causes other issues) The computer labs need to be functional. Most of the time computers are not working, at times the internet is not working, and other times the software required for the course is not available Van service is available till 5:45 PM, while the classes for BSCS (Morning) are scheduled till 8:30 on some days Need for more sections as current ones are too high in strength. The classes and labs at BUKC lack seating arrangements and computers. Students often have to stand at the back or sit on the floor Open Futsal/basketball court involves a lot of risk as students and staff are passing by at all times. Need for divisions/safety measures Effective regulation of traffic in front of main gate especially since the university has blockades in place. Cars should not be allowed to stand for more than 2 min on the main road in front of the university We sincerely hope that these issues are taken seriously and that there are positive changes made to ensure students are learning in a safe and healthy environment. Thank you for your attention and cooperation of making our university a better place for all.

Degree for Vegetarians in Hotel/Hospitality Management Courses
DEGREE FOR VEGETARIAN’S IN HOTEL MANAGEMENT COURSES Around the globe and also in India there are various religions, races, communities, castes and human groups which prefer eating vegetarian food only. Some Religions and communities are Vegetarian only. In India, majority of people are Pure Vegetarians, some are Non-Vegetarians while others are occasional non-vegetarians. Learning to prepare non-vegetarian food was compulsory in Hotel Management Degree Course till recently. Due to that, there was no option available to the students other than to practically prepare and present the non-vegetarian food. Students coming from Vegetarian Families who were inclined towards this esteemed course were deprived admission by their parents. Recently, Ministry of Tourism has given option of “learning Vegetarian only” in all the NCHMCT , Tourism Ministry, Central Government , Institutions it is running all over India. With this initiative the passionate students can take admission and pursue career in the field of Hotel Management. But the awareness on large scale is required to be undertaken for the Vegetarian passionate students about availability of option of "learning Vegetarian Only" It is strongly suggested that there should be an option of “learning Vegetarian only” in present degree course for Vegetarians in Hotel Management Studies in all the Institutions whether run by Government or Deemed Universities, by State Governments or by private Hotel Management Education Institutions. Such change is highly recommended as it is the need of society. Such a degree at all institutions will not only be a boost for the students but it will also benefit the Hotel and Tourism Industry, by getting qualified intelligent Vegetarian Chefs and staff in India and all over world. In this Course, students have to study in more than 40 different subjects like Accommodation, Laws, Travel & Tourism, HR Management, Accounting, etc. out of which Culinary Skills (Cooking) is one of the specialized areas. So, the Vegetarian students were not only losing the Opportunity to learn this skill but they even cannot learn other subjects and were deprived of having their career in those areas. Once this option is introduced at all places, then various people around the world can enjoy different and new delicacies of Vegetarian dishes. Many Renowned chains of Hotel, airline companies and passenger cruises operating internationally serve pure vegetarian food during stay and travel, can provide it with authenticity. Also , the Government initiatives like Skill Development, Swatch Bharat, Healthy India, etc will get big booster by bringing this option in Hotel / Hospitality Management Institutions. Also, we request the Hotel Industry to have designated only Vegetarian Restaurant with dedicated only Vegetarian Kitchen in all star hotels where more than one Restaurant is available. In this regards, I appeal you to use your good offices to support the cause and bring a “Degree for Vegetarians in Hotel Management Course” in reality by pursuing the need to Heads of Governments, Education, Tourism Ministers, AICTE, NCHMCT, Universities and other concerned authorities at all levels.
