Current Issues for Sociology Paper II

Hi folks
Considering the "vagueness" or broad width of issues under Paper 2, I propose jotting down various issues which may be asked to be analysed from Sociological perspective

It would be great if you could attach the relevant link along with the issue

Few Issues which have come to my attention so far:

1. Surrogacy Bill and its implication on Family Structure (Religion and Kinship in India)
