VITALIZING PARLIAMENTARY STUDIES

INDIA on Independence installed

Parliamentary studies on top niche

Set up Institute for it

Which galloped achieving heights.

The world turned their eyesto observe its  trajectory

Some predicted CONSTITUTIONAL
 crash down.

HOW LONG? One year ? TENTY FIVE ?

Will that indigenous masterpiece last ?

Asked some.

More than half  CENTURY WENT BY

 But IS THERE A DANGER FOR THE INSTITUTIONS??.

The question is how many people know how Parliament  works?

On how to raise claims or build pressures?

Not only the elite .  But the masses too?
Are there courses for villagers, in their local lingo.

Are These   Courses spread far and wide.

Available in all languages?

And of all varieties such as = Short time, on line courses ,

Is there literature produced for simple man to the sophisticated researcher?

Is this a failure of supporting institutions?

Mere oratory may not be a suitable foundation

How people will be attachedto Institutions?

The message must penetrate the heart of India.

HISTORY

There are multiple ways in writing history.

one can follow chronological order.

One can stick to facts and dates

one can refer to trends.

One can start with power brokers.

one can view from down to top

View point of masses..

there is critical history of history.

There is economic analysis of history.

Some historians have certain figure heads boosted  to write history.

some take pride and delight .

recall Emperor Agustus

A lot of Modern Dictators.

or history wrapped around  a humble child

History wrapped around a half clad  Fakir.

that vitalised  human spiritual power to defy  an Empire.

 

 

Random thoughts

writer’s freedom

My blogs

Am I a historian?

So  expected to have a certain trend ?

Some associate with my stand.

Am i expected to toe the same line.

Do I have the freedom to change.

My stand depends on moods.

Moods change

trends  in presentation will change.

Is that inconsistency in writng my problem?

If I share  in public , Do I violate your right?

OLD AND ELDERLY

Open University courses for  Senior Citizens?

Love and affection towards old was a traditional concept among past Goan Community.

It was weaved in practices and customs of the people .

Today in changing circumstances these concepts , traditions and institutions are crumbling.

One hears preachers thundering urging people not to fall prey to  cultre of neglect of  the old  and elderly

Could we provide some alternative ramifications ?

Does Goa need Open University courses, for  elderly and seniors?

Could they be organized by University/ or others ?

Discuss :Advantages and disadvantages

So many elderly may enjoy the thrill of university education.

They may enjoy the thrill to be young at heart.

Some of the old have vast experience and knowledge.

Courses designed by elderly

University Managed by elderly themselves.

Some Universities already have them

Could Goa provide new models.
