Punjabi Politics
Archit Watts Tribune News Service Muktsar, July 8 Rajinder Singh Binda, a local tractor-trailer operator, who lost five members of his family, including his father, to drugs in the last about two decades, has appealed to people to put in joint efforts and adopt a zero-tolerance approach to root out the menace. He has also urged the state government to take stringent action against peddlers. Binda, a native of Bura Gujjar road here, said his father Darshan Singh was the first in the family who became a victim of drugs. He died in 1998 at the age of 38. A year later, his maternal uncle passed away due to drugs. He was in his mid-thirties. His two uncles (younger brothers of his father), both addicts, died in 2010 and 2014, respectively. One of his cousins also lost his life to drugs in 2013....

1.5 lakh kids join lost generations, yet again

Punjabi Politics
Kuljit Bains More than 40 per cent of the students who trusted the schooling system of their state, Punjab, have nothing to show at the end of 10 years of formal education. That would be 1.5 lakh children – out of nearly 3.7 lakh who took the Punjab School Education Board Class 10 exam – who will not be able to apply for even semi-skilled jobs in the formal sector. It should be a chilling prospect to imagine how this ‘lost generation’ approaches society as it comes of age and realises how it was betrayed. And this burden has been added to the state each year for decades now. For reference, the national failure rate for Class 10 CBSE students was less than 14 per cent. That some would consider an unfair comparison, given the kind of schools the two boards serve, but...

Lost in translation: Punjabi lit for PU course

Punjabi Politics
Vishav Bharti Tribune News Service Chandigarh, June 1 It seems neither Waris Shah’s ‘Heer’ nor ‘Jagseer’, the Dalit hero from Gurdial Singh’s “Marhi Da Deeva”  have impressed the Panjab University authorities. The university syllabus for ‘Indian Writing in Translation’, one of the papers in MA English, has nothing on the rich Punjabi literature spanning over 1,000 years.  It includes English translation of eight works in Hindi, Bengali, Kannada, Marathi, Oriya and Urdu, but none in Punjabi. Punjab scholars blame it on the university’s “anti-Punjabi” stance and see a plot to deny local students an understanding of their own literary tradition.  However, Prof Akshay Kumar, former Dean Languages, Panj...
