The spread and expansion of information technology has brought a sea change in lifestyle of people

from all walks of life. It has seemingly also created a wedge between different groups in society,
ones who are well adapted to this new innovation and ones who are still ignorant of this new
development. It is sometimes feared that this may well create a wedge between these two groups
thus resulting in social problems.

Expanding base of information technology can be observed in every walk of life today. People who
have ability to cope up and adapt to this new innovation are the leaders as they can easily perform
all the tasks and work without major hassles. Their professional and personal lives are thriving with
this switchover. This has encouraged others to fall in line thereby, preventing conflict.

Various organizations also tend to employ people with skills to handle this medium successfully. The
qualified workers stand better chance of getting rich dividends and better opportunities. For e.g. all
the companies are converting their customer-care and record maintaining sections into electronic
mediums, for which it becomes imperative to employ only tech savvy people.

There are sections, who are ignorant to this change, they are either be nearing retirement or living in
rural areas, thus lacking interest or resources to grab opportunities. Some people still are more
adapted to the traditional work procedures and are averse to the modern methods involving
implementation of IT.

Whatever may be the case, I feel that the fears being allayed about social discord is more or less a
concept of some pessimist social scientist. Information technology is here to stay and it will slowly
spread across and embrace all people, to whichever group they may belong. They will be updated in
due time.

Because of the easy access to information, and better education system
today, children above the age of 15 in my country, have greater
knowledge and confidence, but this has not given them the emotional
maturity or experience to take important decisions without the active
participation of parents or teachers. Hence, there is no need to change
the present law to accommodate the rights of children of this age group.

In the first place, if the law is amended to protect the rights these
children, both parents and teacher would completely lose their control
over them both at home and in school.Since this is psychologically a
vulnerable age, they can easily be lured by misleading elements in the
society, who can exploit them physically and emotionally. Furthermore,
they could be deviated to bad habits like drug addiction, alcoholism and
uncontrolled sexual indulgence. Elders would require a lawful control over
them at this age to safeguard them from such potential dangers.

Secondly, the important decisions that children take, can easily go wrong,
because of the lack of experience and the temperamental nature of their
decision making process. Since children would be able to make decisions
about their personal, professional or education life, like career choices or
life partners, wrong decisions can prove to be detrimental to their success
in future life. For example, as the age of 15 is crucial period for them to
lay a foundation in their educational career, if not properly guided, there
could be a danger of greater school dropouts and career choices that
would not match their intellectual aptitudes.

Parents and teachers who have greater experience and emotional
maturity should guide them at this age, but at the same time should not
impose their ideas on them.

Throwing parties can be expensive. While some people do not find these fancy parties worth what
they cost, others believe parties are important to both individuals and the society.
People choose to throw parties for a number of reasons. For starters, parties can make better
teams. Project kick-off parties are good opportunities to break the ice and help team members to
know each other better. Victory parties create a sense of success and belonging. Companies do
not see parties as wastes of money and allocate budget to support such events. Moreover, parties
often leave good memories. From our own experiences, we all have happy memories of our
birthday parties when we were little. Every family has great photos took on family parties in their
album. In addition, contrary to what some people believe that spending on parties is a waste of
social resources, parties actually create value, either by employing people in the party planning
business or by offering people better party experiences.
The popularity of parties, however, causes some tension in the society. Parties are hard on
introverted people who find themselves uncomfortable in parties. This is a clinic symptom which
psychologists call it social anxiety disorder. There are other ways to celebrate important events
that may have greater value for their cost. For instance, companies could send out gifts after
successful projects and parents could take their children on family trips to celebrate birthdays.
In my opinion, while a party is a form of social event that brings many benefits to individuals and
the society, other choices should also be considered, either to cut spending or to relieve the stress
of those who are not fond of parties.

In some countries children have very strict rules of behavior, in other countries they are
allowed to do almost anything they like. To what extent should children have to follow
The extent to which children have to follow rules is in itself a very complex issue, since children
across the world grow up in very different cultures. In India for example, children are expected to
be very submissive to their parents as well as other adults around them. This, however, is not the
case with the Western countries of the world where children follow the motto Thou shalt do what
thou wilt as promoted by celebrities and rock stars. I believe that following strict rules has both
advantages as well as serious drawbacks as discussed below.
Firstly, strict rules of behavior create responsible and respectful children who in turn mature into
respectful adults. This forms a stable society which is virtually free from negative trends such as
prostitution and drug abuse. Secondly, if children do not follow strict rules of behavior, they may
get out of hand and become work-shy and indolent. This may then create a burden on the society
since the government has to find ways to cater for these social ills.
However, forcing children to follow strict rules of behavior doesnt always yield positive results as
discussed above, most of the time it backfires and works against society. For example, teenagers
are more likely to do the opposite of what theyre told to do simply because they want to be
independent. Children should also have rights to exercise their free will and develop their own
pattern of behaviors. Imposing strict rules may simply destroy the individuality of children.
At the end of the day, it is clear that children should be guided by rules, but these rules should not
be imposed on them because as human beings, they need to have room to develop their own
traits of character and adopt a behavioral pattern of their own.

Every country in the world has several problems to deal with, the major one being poverty. No country
is perfect, it has to be made perfect. Hence, nations have adopted to different strategies to battle this
impediment of growth and prosperity.
The best way to resolve a problem is to find its root cause and address them. Similarly, if one
contemplates over the factors leading to poverty, then the reasons turn out to be corruption, illiteracy,
unemployment and inefficient governance. When an individual is haunted by poverty he rarely can
come out of it, because even to come out of it, certain amount of money is necessary, thereby ending
up in a vicious cycle.
Poverty can be erased from our society provided, firstly, the government, in order to get the poor out
of this pathetic trap, provides facilities like free education, subsidized food prices and low interest
loans. So that, the weak get an opportunity to break the dead locks. Secondly, as the saying goes, be
the change if you want to see the change, citizens also should take initiatives, like for example, being
a part of Non Governmental Organizations in order to educate the children, to provide free reading
material to them and supply food and clothing. For instance, I bear the expenses of my maids
daughters education. Also, I have come across some companies which spend a small percentage of
the money earned by selling every product, to the food and education needs of the wretched.
In conclusion, problems are part of our lives, we only must have right attitude towards them to be able
to curb them. The government and its citizens, in joint collaboration, should retrospect the factors
leading to poverty and must take measures at all levels to help the poor come out of the darkness.

It is very hard to decide that recent human social evolution can be disintegrated
from mass media or not. In fact our lives are so much dependent on information being
generated by various resources that it is virtually impossible to remain effective without
any communication systems. Information needs a medium to travel like newspapers,
radio, television, telephone, and Internet etc. There are now a day's enormous media to
carry information from one part of the earth to the other, rendering diverse world a
colourful global village. Thenewspapers were the pioneer of the communication
networks and remained leaders of it for more than a century. There is no doubt about
the supremacy they have enjoyed but question is 'are they the still lions of jungle?' let us
analyse the situation.
According to most authenticated resource, the world mass media working group (2002),
the graph of number of newspapers is yet far ahead than the other means of
This shows that there is no threat to the position of newspapers due to other fast
growing competitors. In my country I have seen ever increasing numbers of newspapers,
during my personal observation of about two decade and I do not remember any
prominentnewspapers to disappear altogether unlike other industries. Many prefer it
because this is very convenient and affordable to get to each corner of world without
jeopardizing routine activities. There is no need of any power connection, device,
specific place and time. Judging for the demands of modern day life newspapers seem
very much adjusted to everyone's need, so there should be no reason to contradict its
place in our communities.

According to the World Health Organisation, which is a division of the United Nations, 79 countries in
the world, which mainly include developing and under developed countries, score lower than
minimum standards in health care. This result indicates that there exists a severe shortage in medical
supplies and limited access to health care facilities in these countries. In a situation where the
aforementioned problems prevail, the inhabitants of the country will suffer from diminished healthcare
standards which can directly lead to lower production per capita and lower morale among citizens. In
my opinion, a free health care service is necessary for growth and prosperity of any given country.
Gross domestic product, a direct indication of how a countrys economy is performing, can be directly
linked to the health care system of the society. A healthier community or a city performs better and
produces more. The average employee has fewer days off due to sickness and has higher
productivity compared to an employee who suffers from health related problems.
Secondly, a healthier city is a happier city. If citizens of a particular country constantly suffer from
health problems, the morale of the society as a whole diminishes. Individuals socialise less and
engage less in the community. Stress and anger levels would also rise in such communities, which
will further aggravate the situation.
Given the above two consequences of a poor healthcare system, free health cover might be a
permanent solution to the problems stated. It is highly important to understand the fact that, given the
average cost of living, many families are just unable to afford the basic healthcare necessities.
Providing these basic services for free will dramatically affect their lives and living conditions. The free
services do not necessarily require state of the art healthcare technologies. The simplest cover, such
as free or subsidised medication or even just a free consultation, could have a great impact.
