Women Leadership In India - Training Program

The Center for Social Research (CSR) and the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF) started a new initiative to nurture leadership aspirations in women in India.

Over the past decades, women were vastly underrepresented in Indian political decision-making bodies. Though there were symbolic representations at various levels of legislature, the women were shadowed by their male partners, who held the power & decision making.

So, CSR & UNDEF started a new course & website to empower Indian women with their rights and equip them with confidence, determination, and skill to lead.

The new course, "Certificate Program in Leadership and Democracy" is a 7 modules course and covers the basic elements of political participation, gender, and leadership.

Telangana - Its different, Says Pranab

Tasting the domino's affect of Telangana, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee says, "Telangana does not mean new states everywhere. The demand for Telangana was old. Its different!"

Yes, Telangana is different!! But Pranab Da didn't get the real difference yet.

In all other regional agitations, the region (typically neglected & is geographicallly far from state capitals) wanted to separate from the state. But in case of Telangana, the region which is around the state capital (Hyderabad), wants to run away with the capital!!

Indeed, it is much more easy to grant statehood to Vidarbha, Gurkha Land, Bodoland, Bundelkhand, Coorg or for that matter the most recent states like Jarkhand, Chhattisgarh, Uttaranchal. Note that, none of these states carry the state capital with them.

As usual, our moronic politicians didn't understand that they are playing with chilly sauce. It's different!
