Ocean. Is that the first word that crosses your mind when you think about beautiful things? Well, I don’t blame you if it doesn’t. Considering how it has been wasted by humans, it might have been the first thing on your mind 30 years back, but not now.

All of us know oceans cover 71% of Earth’s surface, that is no rocket science. But the surprising fact is that they cover 99% of living space on the planet. So that implies, it is us, humans, living on that 1% living space on earth, that are actually destroying a clear majority of species. How is that justified?

Among other man-made reasons, plastics are the real threat here. Not only are they degrading the environment, but they are also the real evil when it comes to the aquatic fauna. Suffocation, drowning and starving are some of the ways i...

In this millennial, where almost everything starts and ends with internet handling, does the plans of the Russian government to curb access to the internet, stand somewhere?

Internet has come a long way since its origins. From being once used as a form to ease transactions and trade, it is now being related to personal independence in some ways.

Similar is the story of Moscow. The parliament’s action of backing up the Cyber security bill, to restrict certain internet services in Russia has raised massive protests in the capital city. According to the activists, around 15000 people took to the streets of the city the previous month and protested against the same.

As quoted by a campaigner, “If we do nothing, it will get worse. The authorities will be following their own way and the point of no...

Over time, with centuries of empires building up and getting mixed into dust, with the growth of organizations and the improvising policies, one thing that has rapidly been changing is the perspective on BEAUTY. The concept of beauty, is ever so dynamic. From the time when Cleopatra used red ochre, a type of clay, for her lipstick and rouge, to the Millennium we are living in, beauty has grown more than just a compliment or a feature.

Well, if we look deeper into the minds of people, it is no longer the case when people just focused on what they wear or how they dress their hair, but it is just so much more now. It is more related t...

Equality has long been a very complicated yet a necessary condition. Does equality only apply to the men and the women in the society? Well, the answer is clearly a “NO”. India, has for a long time, been a very diversified country, not just in terms of caste or religion but in terms of societies as well. With changing times, and changing beliefs, the laws are in a continuous dynamic of change. One such law is the section 377 of the Indian penal code.

Introduced in 1864 during the British rule of India, it has been a section of the Indian Penal Code . Modelled on the Buggery Act of 1533, it has been used to criminalize sexual activities "against the order of nature". The law has been under constant opposition and doubt ever since a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) filed a plea in a High C...
