Q.

1.Global Warming and Environmental pollution 2.Terrorism 3.Poverty and poor Education structure with their effects(ranging from small crimes to unemployment) and the last one, 4.Female Infanticide --------These issues are the real danger for our country and even for the most of the world according to me.==========
My question:-- Don't you think that these are more a moral issue than social or political issue? According to me, only a realization of taking responsibilities with a better sense can solve these problems, no laws or regulations. Your comments!

You could have added Child Labour in that selection of dreadful and burning issues. Though I correspond without any reservation to the views of Sumitha above, as far as her deduction on interconnection of these fears, I still wish to put Number 3 and 4 away from overall issues as these two have been drastically relating with our Mother India only. The western countries never would show their readiness in accepting Global Warming and Environmental pollution as mere moral issue; since it has become an alarming warning to its existence. No wonder almost all the European countries have created a specific secretariat with a full time minister exclusively to adhere the policy on GWarming. It has become a question of top priority and scientists are working their best to overcome the burning issue because unless and until they bolt down on the problem, it would not make them to get the sound sleep. Therefore, surely it has become the topic on priority table, irrespective of the nomenclature wh ...more

Poverty and Religious fanaticism are the biggest problem. Not education. Look around you, you will find the corrupt educated people.
I always advocate the idea of self-responsibility - Aap sudharo jag sudharega of Yug Nirman Yojanaa.
People need to change themselves first, instead of blaming it on others. In the name of culture and tradition, they justify their want of a son and female infanticide. In the name of caring for the family, the officers are robbing the public funds and stopping it to reach poor people. These officers are educated and these poor are uneducated. Whatis happening? The frustration of these poor is coming out in the form of crime. It's not absence of education, but the the poverty and snobbish/ discriminatory attitude of educated corrupt people towards the poor that is responsible for unrest.

In the good old days elders ruled the roost. Their word was law. There was one law per family(called kandhans) not necessarily conforming to society norms but some semblance of discipline was visible in every family but now every member of a family sets individual rules making it a mad house and it is these mad houses that grow into neighbourhoods, cities, states, countries and finally the whole world. With this as the base it is well nigh impossible to expect performance from individuals unless they themselves choose to become good responsible individuals. There are a few who do not need laws to breathe down their neck.
They know their responsibility and it is these few that make the world go round.

All are interconnected to the declining morality of individuals which reflect on the society ..... A person with sound moral values would not think of harm to himself or the society....and if does harm inadvertently...he wud hold himself responsible for all his actions.....We have become too selfish in our pursuit of our pleasures that we do not bother how it affects the rest of the world. Our values have changed drastically and unless we go back to the basics of humanity....we are doomed to suffer such dangers.

Echo of my own feelings...I feel to take moral decisions one need to have very cultured mindset and that will come from educated and sensitive society...and we need to educate to have such society...

These are neither social or political problems but the creation of political parties so as to put the citizens in a begging bowel in the hope of getting regular vote in elections.
if the States power is restored by the Supreme court poverty and terrorism and social disparities is eliminated easily.
