Be sensitive and considerate towards the elderly

As you’re walking back home, you notice an elderly person always sitting at that same corner outside his/ her house, sometimes staring into nothingness. Have you ever given thought as to what goes on in the lives of such old people? How do they live? Who do they talk to? Sometimes, the only ray of sunshine in their lives is a rare phone call from a son or daughter settled far away. Many youngsters, who live a carefree life, don’t realise that someday they too shall get old. They spend their days happily, never ready for the impending reality of life. They live by the words of English author Francis Bacon: “I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.” To these youngsters, I say: Stop and see. Notice and empathise. Because one day you will be in those shoes. About a tenth of the population is above 60, and with an average life expectancy of 66 years, the elderly population is set to grow sizably. Most of the old are either marginalised or ostracised a…

Should there be an international minimum wage ? should 30% of the revenue raised by robots be used fund redundant workers pension?

What robotisation can offer to the future of work in India  

As we ask ourselves how employment is threatened by technology, we should look at how labour has changed in recent decades. Before we get so attached to the current job market, and feel we must defend it from an eventual robot takeover, we should examine how unfair the labour system has become and how robotics could contribute to change that. If properly managed, the robotic revolution could be a chance to free millions of people from a system of exploitation of labour which is unprecedentedly inhumane. Or not. In ancient Rome, a slave worked a maximum of six hours a day. A third of the year was spent in festivities. European workers in the Middle Ages had a six-hour work day and spent 150 days in religious celebrations — almost half the entire year off! Nothing close to the 13 to 14 hours put in by the average, always-on entrepreneur of our times. Or the 10 hours a regular employee often clocks in, which explains why overw…

Consumers not bound by hidden terms of service providers

 So remember,
So remember, no manufacturer or service provider can take refuge under terms and conditions that are not made known to you.(AFP)
Are you aware that service providers cannot bind you to terms and conditions that are not made known to you? Or that they can no longer use the small print to get away with unfair terms and conditions? Or that failure to give consumers the most crucial information pertaining to a product or a service constitutes violation of the consumer’s right to information? The apex consumer court has emphasized these points in a number of landmark judgements and here I am putting together a few of them.

In Lufthansa German Airlines Vs Dr R.Bhaskaran, when a couple’s request for refund of their unused tickets was rejected by the airline on the ground sthat the terms and conditions governing the ‘excursion fare’ did not allow it, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission considered whether th…

"Every four seconds, a person dies without a will. A decade or more is spent before their loved ones can benefit from their assets.So BPS appeal to all pensioners to write a WILL

Indians are writing their wills earlier, and onlineRanjani Ayyar | 2017-10-21 20:11:00 +0000
Pooja Srivats, a resident of Bengaluru, was 39 when she drafted her first will after her father died leaving a sizeable inheritance without a will. "I didn't want money or property to become a cause of discord. However foolish it may seem, I wrote a will to record the little money and assets I had," said Srivats.
Pune-based Pramod Kumar drew up a will in July when he turned 40. Being a single parent to two minor girls, he wanted to make sure they were taken care of, if anything untoward were to occur.
More people, even those in their forties, aren't leaving things to chance but are writing their wills early on to avoid the kind of bitter property disputes they've seen tear families apart. And a slew of online will drafting options are aiding this trend.
Founder and CEO of Vakilsearch Hrishikesh Datar said the number of will-related enquires had doubled every two years fr…

Pollution a cause of more than one of four early deaths  in India BPS calls upon pensioners to rise to the occasion to wage war against pollution by educating younger generation Indians are the worst affected by environmental pollution in the world. Environmental pollution from filthy air to contaminated water is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world- more than smoking, hunger or natural disasters, more than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

Asia and Africa are the regions putting the most people at risk, the study found, while India tops the list of individual countries.
In the most severely affected countries pollution is responsible for more than one in four deaths, the report said- PTI BPS calls upon its MOU partners affiliates, Assoc…
