  • A much needed thread.....

  • what's the plan for covering various dimensions related to Haryana
    I will march forward even if I have to do so alone.

    Of all the things I hold in high regard, rules are not one of them.

    Achievements on last 5 decades, personalities
    I didn't come this far only to come this far..

  • Haryana's controversy with Punjab(SYL, Airport Naming, Chandigarh)
    Khap Panchayat
    Honour Killing

    I will march forward even if I have to do so alone.

    Of all the things I hold in high regard, rules are not one of them.
  • Improving sex ratio
    Jay reservation issue: why reservation
    sports culture
  • We can add on topics with explanation that topics can be done with.
  • Yeah..we must pose a question and decide on what answer we wud give..

    Police apathy during Jat reservation protest last year..
  • do we need to refer some book like arihant's know your state or NBT's books on haryana to know about Haryana or is internet sufficient enough and there is no need to refer to any book for interview preparation?
  • Guys, let's cover the political history of the state firstas it's the simplest one.Reasons why it was divided from Punjab. Challenges faced by the state initially. Nature of politics- local patrons and caste identities. Can someone attach a good article here which deals with this?
  • 1)why Haryana separated from punjab ?
    -The Punjabi Suba movement aimed at creation of a Punjabi-majority subah in the erstwhile East Punjab state of India in the 1950s. Led by the Akali Dal, it resulted in the formation of the Punjabi-majority Punjab state, the Hindi-majority Haryana state and the Union Territory of Chandigarh.
    -The Government of India was wary of carving out a separate Punjabi language state, because it effectively meant dividing the state along religious lines: Sikhs would form a 60% majority in the resulting Punjabi state.
    - Thus the division is on the basis of linguistic lines.In September 1966, the Indira Gandhi-led Union Government accepted the demand, and Punjab was trifurcated as per the Punjab Reorganisation Act.

    Areas in the south of Punjab that spoke the Haryanvi dialect of Hindi formed the new state of Haryana, while the areas that spoke the Pahari dialects were merged to Himachal Pradesh.
  • 2)Challenges faced by Haryana initially : economic development( least developed part of punjab), irrigation problem(syl canal), social development.
  • After this we can now do topic wise : let's complete SYL canal issue : why this issue, why important for Haryana , what are the setbacks , what can be done?
  • International airport: Dispute over name
    Different Stakes
    "The Chandigarh airport is an international airport, in which the Airport Authority of India is having 51 percent stake, while Punjab and Haryana are having 24.4 percent each.
    Haryana's Stand
    Airport should be named as International Airport, Chandigarh. Though the international airport is located in
    Mohali, the allied services like ATC are located in Chandigarh. Logically, it should be called as
    the Chandigarh international airport
    wanted it to be named as International Airport, Mohali
    It is time to celebrate the commencement of international flights from the airport.
    While it is a good news for residents of Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir,
    Punjab and Haryana, it will also create employment opportunities for the youth of
    the region. Political leaders of both Punjab and Haryana should reach a consensus
    by using their collective wisdom over the issue.
    I will march forward even if I have to do so alone.

    Of all the things I hold in high regard, rules are not one of them.

    also needs to be covered
  • @junglee12 we have to remember that those who shined belonged to very humble backgrounds..

    Can we bring in sports policy of Haryana?
  • Haryana And Sports
    apart from reason mentioned above certain other reasons are
    Haryana Society
    Haryana has a volatile history of continuous aggression due to its geographical location , that's why they are aggressive.
    Haryana have valued physical strength and perseverance due to its farming culture, also animal domestication , so healthy diet.
    Sports policy since 2006
    honed the athletic spirit in Haryana, policies like Youth welfare Scheme, Padak Lao & Pad Pao

    that is why Haryana is good in combative sports like boxing, Kusti.
    I will march forward even if I have to do so alone.

    Of all the things I hold in high regard, rules are not one of them.
