Agriculture and women.....130
«13456716

Comments

  • Agri and women....Must be 130+
  • In agriculture,
    Started with the story that we go to temple to worship God ( as He is Taranhar,Palanhar) and present fruits, vegetable, food etc but the real god is a farmer..
    But we read peasant of tamilnadu demonstrating or police shooting in Mandsaur or suicide in Maharashtra etc
    No farmer wants his next generation work in field..
    Then statistics of agri in GDP like share, primary sector, employment etc but 
    Agriculture is not viable and this starts from production to marketing...
    Mansoon ka juaa, small farm, no machinisation, no proper use of fertilizer and irrigation issue
    Marketing challenge, no warehouse, no institulalisation of loan, APMC act etc
    Then govt plan and niti draft for double income to 2022
    Why it is compulsory to make agriculture attractive...
    How would it be achieved...2nd green revolution, evergreen revolution, lab to land research, digital india benefits to agriculture, new research of crops, food processing etc
    What initiative govt has taken like insurance scheme, irrigation scheme, enam etc and positive conclusion for the betterment of a farmer..
    Ensuring his smiling face would be the real worship of Palanhar, Taranhar....(farmer).



    Btw I am a hindi medium student.

    On Woman Issue, 2nd Essay

    Started with the lines of Pink Movie poem
    तू खुद की खोज में निकल,
    तू किस लिए हताश है,
    तू चल तेरे वजूद की,
    समय को भी तलाश है

    and then told the example of metro driving girl, chhavi rajawat in uno, pv sandhu in olympic podium etc but the darker side is also there when we read a woman burnt or any nirbhaya etc.
    Then I described first the new woman in india in society, politics, economy , sports etc and again what's not fulfilment still not done like temple entry or talak issue, sarpanch pati concept, woman reservation, materialisation of woman, pati parmeshwar concept, dangal dialogue mhari chhorian....
    Next I discussed the reason like second sex, one is not born woman, reasons behind
    Then why we need completeness of a woman for a better society
    Then role of govt, male society to change and
    In between I put the line too....If development is not engendered,it is endangered.
    End with a self written poem....

    नहीं माँगती मैं ऊँचा पद,
    मुझको दे दो मेरे सारे हक।
    आधी नहीं मैं साझी हूँ,
    मैं भी इस नाव की माँझी हूँ।
    मुझे दिला दो मेरा आकार,
    हम मिल कर करेंगे, नव युग का सपना साकार।
    जब राजा के साथ होगी सदैव रानी,
    तब ही तो कही जाएगी, नव युग की सच्ची कहानी।
    हे,पुरुष नहीं हूँ मैं तुम्हारी बल हारी,
    मैं तो बस हूँ, नये युग की नारी।।।।

  • Social Media is inherently a selfish medium:
    Intro: Generic rise of media in 21st century and the debate about whether it is selfish or magnanimous.

    Selfish because:
    1) Purpose of Creation: Official aim to 'Connect People' and seems free on face value, but is actually not. We are an investment and all these companies are worth billions. They use our search history for advertisements, etc.

    2) Issue of Data: Data is said to be the new oil and sites like Facebook and Twitter have access to a lot of our personal data. Mentioned the WhatsApp issue.

    3) Misuse of Popularity: Facebook presenting 'Free Basics' on account of its popularity as a social media website, effectively going against net neutrality. Even though TRAI didn't allow, they are using it in some African countries.

    4) Use by agents other than creators: Propaganda, Fake News, can be misused by a totalitarian government etc.

    So, anonymity can be easily misused, but not entirely selfish.

    Not Selfish because:
    1) Service delivery and awareness campaigns: 'Twitter Sewa', 'Selfie with Daughter' etc.

    2) Social Media and Social Cooperation: People helping each other during Manchester terrorist attacks, during demonetization time in India, Chennai Floods.

    3) Social Media and Social Justice: News can reach to every person. For eg: Governments of EU reaction on the images of the drowned kid, United Airlines fiasco.

    4) Can be effectively used in disaster management.

    Conclusion: Even though the purpose of creators might have been inherently selfish, the media provides an interesting opportunity to be used unselfishly, as seen in above examples.

    N sab ek jaisa nhi likhte h. This is completely wrong belief. Though marking m difference sirf 1 maRk rehta h avg n good answer m.

    Zindagi asan ya tough apki expectation se h. Kismat par chhodkar bhi yeh bologe ki sab bura mere saath kyu. It's actually don't expect much n just keep flowing

  • How we are supposed to speculate marks of essay is beyond me , in 2013 i expected around 90 got 126 in 2014 based on that I expected ki 125+ ayega and 131 , iss baar ka pata nhi what to expect, didn't clear last years pre hence np mains of 2016 to compare , khair likha he on classroom and social media question (mera flow structure and conclusion is much different from almost all th social media essay) , though one thing i can say in essay is if one has written relevant and have maintained a good structure than he/she can expect avg or above avg that is 130+ in my opinion
    ehh what's up doc!!!!

    Pre -4, mains -2 , interview - 2, Rank -None

    Conclusion: Even though the purpose of creators might have been inherently selfish, the media provides an interesting opportunity to be used unselfishly, as seen in above examples.

    @Cremator @Maddeadpool @integral_unity Bhai log ek baar review kar do.
    Aur kisi aur ne ispe likha hai toh apna bhi share karo please.

    Lagta hai u could hav given suggestions on how social media can be balanced with few examples before conclusion.. i didnt write this essay.. (its just a opinion last year i got 136 i didnt give essY testseries but practiced structure for few essays.. no data and no quotes and no storis and no fancy stuff.. just covered from various angles and my second last year ja poora justify nahi kar paaya )

    @Cremator bhai kuch kismat bhi maan ke chal lo...zindagi aasan lagti hai..sabhi lagbhag ek jaisa likhte hain..

    Kisi ko 5.50 marks milte hain...kisi ko 5.. ab yahi 0.5 ka difference 80-90 ka difference ban jata hai...ek hero hota hai...baaki hum sab yahan forum pe muh cchipaye ghoom rahe hain.

    I believe in luck
    But not every 0.5 will b against u. It almost balance out to wat we deserve ..some stray cases are obviously there

    N sab ek jaisa nhi likhte h. This is completely wrong belief. Though marking m difference sirf 1 maRk rehta h avg n good answer m.

    Zindagi asan ya tough apki expectation se h. Kismat par chhodkar bhi yeh bologe ki sab bura mere saath kyu. It's actually don't expect much n just keep flowing
    Mere bhai maine "Kuch" kismat kaha hai..wahi luck type wala hai... kaam to karna hi padta hai... padna to hota hi hai..jab kuch mann ka na ho tab kuch bhi maan lo aur aage badte chalen..bas main itna kehna chah raha tha.
    Hmm. Yeh toh h hi
    M khud bahot chhote margin se miss kar rha hu. Luck ki kami keh sakte ho. Pre m 1 mark, last year final list m 9 marks.
    Ha aage badna jeevan ka niyam h :smile:
    Same case here..missed final this time by 20 marks..124 in interview..bas yahi kismat/destiny/luck hai..

    Ab to vaise mausam accha hai...aur dhoop badi sahi lag rahi hai...
    Udaipur m November December is awesom. Sunlight n mild cold. Mediterranean weather h foreigners bhi zyada aate h isliye. Really enjoying tea stalls during noon time :smile:

    124 h bhai toh put some more effort Dont b conscious, go cool. Go with Mindset tht i will say i don't know 40 times but will not loose composure n confidence

    I suffered due to essay n gs1 . Diagram n map are not sham it really improves readability. I found different look in answers.
    Haan bhai tum bhi lage raho...

    Diagrams ka is baar koi khaas scope dikha nahi mujhe..

    UP me smog ji lene de..wahi bahut hai...but Delhi se 250 km east me apna mausam theek hi hai...
    Heavy fog to roj ki kahani hai.
    Fragment polity k liye
    India map banakar dikha do.. Maratha Mysore carnatic etc. So u prove fragment

    Aise hi sab jagah easy readable maps
    M friends got 125 gs1 with very average content but awesome presentation

    Yaar last year nhi banaya toh iss baar bana diya. Content toh likh hi diya h
