Everyone is talking about the same thing and that is “youth unemployment”. Youth unemployment has become a common subject such that it has put government under pressure from oppositions. Many are blaming government to be on inertia over the same subject. This is because qualified youths do jobs that are readily available. With an influx of institutions that offer higher education, youths are now able to access tertiary education and acquire skills to do jobs. Now the questi...

“Hidden youth” is an increasingly popular term in Hong Kong and across Asia (especially Japan). So, who are these “hidden youth”? These are young people who are neither in education nor employment, and spent most of their time at home, playing video games. They typically have limited social interactions with the outside world, and attention has been drawn to them due to extreme murder cases. “Hidden youth” have withdrawn themselves from society, unable to establish or e...

Although there are minimum wage laws in most countries, it still remains a controversial argument. While proponents of the law say that it increases the standard of living of workers, reduces poverty and inequality, boosts morale, and forces business to be more efficient, opponents of...

We know that globally, the population aged 15 to 24 reached over 1.2 billion in 2010.

The National Food Security Bill was signed into law on the 12th of September 2013.

The major question is whether 67% of the people of I...

The midday meal scheme is an ambitious remedy the government is using to deal with the situation of education and nutrition of the children of India. Acknowledging this effort of the government, nearly 120 million children across the country make use of this scheme. However, the lackluster performance regarding the implementation of this scheme has served as a deterrent towards its use and has eclipsed the incentives of the scheme. Ignorant actions of a principal of a school in...

The inability to justify the means creates a loop for faults and mishaps. This fault develops a breach in peace and well being. The foundation holding every living trait is 'Love.' This is why we have no inferiority issue, no criticism, no hate. But if you cross check countries - especially some parts in Africa and other Asian spheres, human rig...

There is a famous quote, “youth is wasted on the young.” I don’t know how you feel about that, I on the other hand think “wisdom is wasted on the old.” And being young in this era is not a walk in the park, the life the older generation has created for us sometimes leaves a lot to be desired. We are better educated than most of our parents but we have to work twice as hard to afford the kind of life that could very easy to them when they were our age. I have been wait...
