I am rejected for marriage,

Income Inequality or Income Inequity?
20. August 2020 at 16:21
by Suryansh Mansharamani
Filling in the gaping hole of economic equality between the rich and the poor was never the, nor a problem, but rather further emphasizing economic growth along with tightening its policies. In summary, economic “equality” acts as merely an imaginative boundary line proportional to economic growth.

The claim above is strengthened through the fact that the free market economy leads to the natural production of incentives and the wealthy open up more opportunities for jobs. For the defense of these claims and to shed light upon the other side of this debate, even the slightest attempt of maintaining an income equilibrium would be suddenly destroyed due to the uncertainties of the proclivities of citizens, yet the chaos is still confused with other aspects of the economy, such as the skyrocketing prices for homes and college tuition.


Firstly, in a free market economy, the 99% should actually be grateful to the top 1%. This is due to the fact that those entities that were once considered luxuries are now nothing but common appliances in our home. Such advancement would not have been possible if indiv...

Hatred Over Love: This is Our Society

The opposite of teaching hate is teaching love and appreciation - not blindness. If hate is ice, then love is warmth and blindness is a cold neutral. If we want to melt ice, we must be warm. Thus, if we want to combat hate then we must love with a passion. The following is an article account of circumstances one may encounter in today's society.

A child arrives.


She believes she is a princess, a crown on her head.

Completely oblivious to what the media blares…

It blares that if she is overweight, she is not good enough.

It blares that she must starve herself to correct her ‘bluff.’

It will make this princess believes she is ugly,

But the media won’t acknowledge that it is corrupt.



A child arrives.


Too young to vocalise his thoughts,

And too young to care.

A mere infant, unprejudiced and unaware…

Unaware that because he was born black,

He’ll always be labeled a criminal.

A girl and a child marriage survivor - “With a voice and for the voice of the voiceless.

In disapproving, In this patriarchal society

To be a hero within my gender,

Child Marriage cuts dreams short- The role of Education as a game changer,,,

Child marriage cuts the dreams short – Role of education as a game changer Child marriage is still pretty prevalent in our society and education is a possible solution. Here are a few reasons why your daughters need education.

With education comes empowerment. Education changes minds and lives.


 "My mum often told me to study or else, I’d end up like her. I never really took these things seriously but now as I read about child marriages, I realise what she meant". Child marriage doesn’t just put an end to a girl’s hopes and dreams, it also hampers the efforts taken to end poverty and achieve economic growth and equality. Girls are powerful agents of the socio-economic change. Early marriage creates barriers and transforms the child’s life from playing and studying to dealing with unwanted social responsibilities.


The effect child marriage has on education

A newlywed child bride has to move to a new location, putting her out of the range of her school. This happens as there are many practical obstacles for the chil...

The Bill has generated lots of attention within and outside Nigeria given that it has passed the second reading in the Nigerian Senate. It seeks “Jail” and “death penalty” for offenders for putting out false information or “Hate Speech” on Social Media. Here is why I believe such a Bill spells doom for Youth Development in Nigeria:

“It will take us backward”. Recently, the Federal Governments announced that it will be making available

a Sexual Offenders Register. Also, the Kano state govt. recently announced a law that only girls who have

completed secondary school education can be legally married. Social Media has played a huge role in

achieving such inspiring feats in the crusade against rape and child-bride syndrome. Reports on social

media {genuine and false) went viral. They’ve all contributed their one cents to sanitizing our clime.
