ENHANCING CORE SKILLS OF INDIA through education

Consequences of committing a crime……
The price one has to pays should be the deterrent
Nirbhay rape case had suddenly brought juvenile crime into the lime light in India years ago. The problem is rampant across the country and the situation is grim. Sensitize the youth, lower the juvenile age, change people’s mindset, harsher punishment, teach morals at schools, change the law are some of the proposed solutions doing the rounds.

First Among equals
Philosophy and life
Many times, I have been asked by the media as well as by my readers —

Authors Interview- Chanakya Book
1. The choice of subject for this book is unique. Tell us why you chose Chanakya for this book, part of the series called, Life Lessons from Luminaries.
