Minor ends life seeing father's helplessness to pay fee 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A 16-year-old boy in Punjab committed suicide to "relieve his father of the guilt" of not being able to fulfil his dream of studying further. The incident has once again brought to the fore the predicament of debt-ridden farmers in Punjab. Gurjinder Singh, who hung himself on Thursday night in Nagla village, was his parent's only child and they wanted him to grow up and help them get out of debt and poverty. But now they say all their hopes have come to an end. Gurjinder had passed the Class X examination and wanted to join a private school to study further. Apart from studies, Gurjinder was ready to sweat it out with his father during the sowing season. Over the years, his father's debt rose to over Rs 5 lakh. Gurjinder spoke to his father of his plans to study further, but his father's helplessness was often writ large on his face. Soon, Gurjinder stopped asking about his education, though it was very hard for him to give up on studies. When he could not bear it any further, Gurjinder decided to end ...

Lack of spirituality one reason for farmer suicides: Sri Sri 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar today said that lack of "spirituality" was one of the reasons that leads to farmer suicides. He was speaking to reporters at a program here. To a question about farmer suicides in Maharashtra and elsewhere, the spiritual leader said, "We have done pad-yatra in 512 villages of Vidarbha, and on that basis we can say that poverty alone is not the reason behind the farmer suicides. They lack spirituality. "Therefore, I appeal to all the people who work in this field (of spirituality) to reach out to farmers," he said. Yoga and pranayam were essential to "remove suicidal tendencies" among the farmers, he said. Asked about the controversy over the cultural event organised by Art of Living Foundation on the banks of Yamuna which is alleged to have damaged the rivers floodplains, Ravi Shankar said, "The truth will triumph." "I have full faith in the judicial system....There is an NGO which is carrying on malicious campaign...There is some disadvantage of being ...

India to enter 8% growth trajectory in 2-3 years: Niti Aayog 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
Government think tank NITI Aayog expects Indias growth rate to return to the 8 per cent plus trajectory in 2-3 years, paving the way for faster reduction in poverty during the next decade. In its 3-year draft action agenda, it has also stressed upon the need for reforms in taxation, agriculture and governance for accelerating all-round development of the country. "Indeed, there are good prospects that we will return to 8 per cent plus growth trajectory in another 2-3 years if not sooner. Therefore, the chances of massive cut in the poverty rate in the upcoming decade are excellent," said the 208-page agenda circulated among the chief ministers on Sunday. The action agenda will replace the five-year planning system. The 12th Five Year Plan, the last of the series, ended on March 31.
