The word -uniform9 itself suggests its objective – one form. ‘Uniform’ means identical and consistent When students wear a particular uniform which is unique to their school or group it imbibes in them the feeling of oneness, belonging, and being the same It actually helps to bring students from different social groups together. Students beg to differ. Uniforms, they say, inhibits their individuality and wearing identical clothes makes them feel robotic. Uniforms curtail their freedom of expression. The debate goes on. There are other ways of showing one's individuality and it is unfair that the uniform has to take the brunt for it. Showing one's individuality through dress is not required at this young age. Wearing the same uniform puts all students on the same platform. It's easier on the parent’s pockets as uniforms are generally wash and wear and are relatively cheaper than buying fancy clothes.

Outline: Explaining the term. Activities that are considered as delinquent acts. Family drawbacks resulting in delinquency. Preventive measures – private and governmental. Juvenile delinquency refers to anti-social, disruptive or illegal behaviour by children or teenagers. Though it is not easy to define juvenile delinquency, sociologist Marfatia explains it as a social offence committed by an individual who is below 18, otherwise would have been charged as a crime if an adult was. Juvenile children legally do not come under the Penal Section. Therefore, they are not punished like adult criminals. Such child offenders are sent to remedial homes. Children often test the limits and boundaries set by their parents and elders. There are certain kinds of activities that are counted as delinquent behaviour. They include killing someone, gambling, being dishonest, stealing, looting, begging, suicidal attempt, indulging oneself in sexual offence, committing violence or causing damage to someone's property.

Female foeticide is the term used to describe the killing of a female foetus in the womb of the mother. In modern times, very commonly, a female foetus is selectively aborted after pre-natal sex determination, thus avoiding the birth of a girl. No moral or ethical principle supports such a procedure for gender discrimination. The sex ratio has altered consistently in favour of boys since the beginning of 20th century and the effect is more pronounced in the states of Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. Private foetal sex determination clinics were first established in these states and the practice of selective abortion became popular in late 1970s. Worryingly, the trend is far stronger in urban than rural areas, among literate than illiterate, exploding the myth that growing woman in society is determined by her education, health, economic role, presence in profession, and decision- making power within the family. Among Hindus, preference more...

It was the first day of the S. S. C. Examination. There was an atmosphere of suspense and tension in the examination hall.

I was considered to be a bright student, a promising scholar. I used to study regularly throughout the year and was not at all scared of examination. On this particular day, I was unruffled and confident, and placidly read the question paper, as though it was a newspaper. I always made it a point to attempt the essay first. While the other questions could be disposed of quickly, the essay demanded leisure, imagination and freshness of mind. One of the essay topics happened to be ‘Examination Reforms’, and in a fateful more...
