Uneducated Politicians, Followed By Racism Is The Curse In The Development Of Any Country. Racism, a creed that creates a sense of discrimination among humans of superior and inferior is a curse on the passion of humanity. Have you ever wondered who much ugly this spirit of racism for humanity? Racism is a catastrophe that kills the honor of humanity and promotes obscene. A belief that groups of humans possess different behavioral traits corresponding to physical appearance, and can be divided based on the superiority of one race over another. Racism should be eradicated from society and equality based on equity should be established.

Racism is also considered as prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against other people because they are of a different race or ethnicity. History: Racism existed during the 19th century as "scientific racism", which attempted to provide a racial classification of humanity. In 1775 Johann Blumenbach divided the world's population into five groups according to skin color (Caucasians, Mongols, etc.), positing the view that the non-Caucasians had arisen through a process of degeneration.


Polygamist Christophe Mainers for example, split mankind into two divisions which he labeled the "beautiful White race" and the "ugly Black race". In Meiners' book, The Outline of History of Mankind,(1) he claimed that a main characteristic of race is either beauty or ugliness. He viewed only the white race as beautiful. He c...

A Confession

Ever felt like "why me always?" So, fresh year - fresh start? This is that kind of time. It can be, why not?

Some say every day, even every moment is a fresh start if you think. Someone I really adore thinks that it all starts in mind. I don't know about it though. Might be true, might not. I'm not sure why I'm not really excited about this new year new me shit. Maybe I'm too old to celebrate or maybe I'm feeling like it's just some other event. You know, there was a time when I used to look forward to this. But, what a terrible turn of events this year has brought. I got my articles published, I got closer to my family, I took the admission for PG which I never thought of doing, started studying hard and learned my responsibilities very hard way.. I wish I was at home this time with the ones I truly love. 


You know, all these years and especially this year, I bragged a lot about not having a hold on my life. I felt terr...

Addressing community elders in a far-flung rock-strewn neighborhood in eastern Nangarhar province, Dr. Nakamura echoed message of peace: “Life is valued not weapon…” addresses were nodding.

“Life is Valued Not Weapon”

As an Afghan I’m writing this article with broken heart bearing the shame of what happened to a great soul who had left his dear family and loved ones behind in Japan to ease lives for desperate Afghans.

Dedicated Physician, Dr. Tetsue Nakamura, arrived in Afghanistan in 1980s when the country was under Soviet Union invasion and continued treating the wounds sustaining Afghans from post-Soviet Union invasion murderous civil war. Upon he learned about the wider dimensions of challenges taking tolls on Afghans’ lives, he shed his doctor coat started seeking fundamental ways for countering situation proportionately.

The Ethics and Politics of Climate Change
04. April 2020 at 19:04
by Francine Beatriz Pradez
Too often the discourse about rapid climate change and our collective goal for a better world is anchored on the scientific and technical aspect of the issue which often becomes an exclusive discourse that is accessible to only a select percent of the population. By analyzing how the advocacy of the climate movement affects society, the discourse becomes more inclusive and relevant to everyone.

The call for climate justice is an emerging social movement that had found its roots in various sectors of society particularly the marginalized by reframing climate change as a manifestation of liberal capitalism and aggressive politics, not just an environmental concern. Because of the futile struggle of contemporary environmentalism and the lack of political urgency to address climate change, the campaign for Climate Justice stands to be a proactive, dynamic, and inclusive solution to the problem at hand. It seeks to understand the intricacies of climate change in an ethical and political perspective primarily on how the mitigation of climate change is an equitable responsibility of the few and not an equal burden to be shared by many.


Within society, the dominant disco...

Me, myself but I (Borderline Personality Disorder)
04. April 2020 at 18:59
by Anujin Saruul
One day, you will be the most attractive person on earth. Everyone seems like looking at you, some of them get jealous in you. Some of them look afraid to talk to you. You are the queen and the king. And the other day, everyone seems like hating you. You feel like you are not enough pretty or not enough smart to them. Those feelings changed everyday. One moment, you are angry, one moment–you are calm. This is what people with BPD deals in life.

I do not know who I am. I am flesh, bone, skin and soul. I am scar, broken heart and room abundant of darkness. I am happiness, laugh and kindness. I am everything, but I am nothing. My inner side is part of the empty scream inside of limbo. I stuck here, I was born here, may die in here. When someone asks me if I am a good or bad man, I don’t know what I should answer. What, I, should, say. This is the split between me and me.


I am the human who loves, who cares and who requires too mu...

The Urgent Need for Environmental Education in Africa
04. April 2020 at 18:57
by Maulline Gragau
Following the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm in 1972, several African countries created National Environment Authorities to increase environmental awareness among the people.

In recent years, many of these countries have also established Ministries of Environment and National Resources. In countries like South Africa, Namibia, Kenya and even Zimbabwe, environmental management and practices have been incorporated into primary, secondary, university and college curricula. Notwithstanding these laudable efforts, environmental illiteracy is still widespread at grassroots, among industrial and business executives, economists, civil servants, policymakers and implementers. This state of affairs underscores the failure of environmental education to integrate the underlying socio-economic causes of environmental degradation and pollution. Lack of funding and sound evidence-based comprehensive environmental policies and laws coupled with poor enforcement machinery have further reduced the effectiveness of ...

Things that you should not be doing as a leader
10. February 2020 at 09:58
by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Long before I was a traveler and blogger, I used to work for a local newspaper. Although I didn’t like my job, I was pretty good at what I did. Considering my performance and dedication, the company promoted me to a higher level as a Team Leader. I was told what my duties will be, however, was not informed how to handle the team. I was still able to do my work with the same enthusiasm and manage my team’s work at the same time.

Things kept going like this until one day a meeting of all the leaders took place. It was a kind of workshop on Leadership and Leadership Qualities. It helped me in learning a lot of things that I didn’t know before. We were told that a Leader must be professional, friendly, and at times, strict also. The Leadership Qualities that were told to us were:

  • Resilience
  • Confidence
  • Delegation
  • Empathy
  • Humility
  • Communication
  • Influence
  • Vision
  • Accountability
  • Positivity
  • Integrity
