Has anyone realised the damage being done to our human resources by allowing students to be cheated by unscrupulous foreign universities which have opened offshore campuses in India, asks D.S. Cheema. Degrees of deception

RUDYARD KIPLING in his novel Kim said, "There is no sin so great as ignorance." Indeed, there is no sin greater than being ignorant or letting others live in ignorance. Education has been widely recognised as a tool to enlighten the ignorant. But if someone cheats the ignorant under the pretence of providing education, one must sit up and take notice of it.

Passion royale for pampering pets
Roshni Johar

It is attitude that counts, faith that prevails
R.C. Sharma
F you have problems or you are passing through an unfavourable time, you needn’t worry at all. When there is a problem, there is definitely a solution too. When somebody is ill, he goes to a doctor. The doctor examines him, and after diagnosis prescribes the appropriate medicine which cures him.
