The diverse nature of Indian society has its own dark side: Social issues in India

Also Read

 

India is scaling new heights of development while many voices are going unheard; these are the voices of social problems. These are the areas which do not become obvious but are leading to pulling India backwards in its climb to success. The fact that needs to be considered is how much ever a nation is developed if it doesn’t solve its internal crisis; the development goes down the drain. Social issues in India are one of the main factors to be considered which is causing a ridge between developed and developing India.

Poverty as one of the major social issues which comes under types of social issues like social inequality, social stratification and social disorganization:-

Poverty is considered as the main reason leading to the birth of various other social issues in India and India is home to the world’s largest slum pocket. According to the 2013 estimation, by Indian Planning Commission 269 million people i.e. 22% of the population lives under the poverty line. The abolition of this problem requires imparting education to save more generations from the quicksand of poverty.

Corruption as one of the major social issue of which comes under types of social issues like economic issues:-

India being a democratic nation has its downfall because of them under the table practice. This can be seen as a practice by a person at a smaller position to a person as highly positioned as a minister.

 Scams like the Colgate and 2 G scam or the cases like the one of Vijay Mallya have punctured the wheels of the economy. This had led to an urgent need to teach our next generation to put a stop to this unethical practice.

 

Terrorism as one of the major social issue of which comes under types of social issues like education deficiency:-

Terrorism is backstabbing the nation through its wrath from the time of its partition. Some of the examples could be hideous attacks that took place on 26/11 and the recent Uri attack etc. These attacks are inclusive of internal terrorism practised through sleeper cells also. Such attacks have not halted, though many surgical strikes and peace talks are done by India.

Communalism is one of the major social issues which come under types of social issues like Social inequality, Social stratification and Social disorganization:-

 

India is home to 1,028,610,328 communities has additional challenges to maintain peace among them. The example could be the like the recent ones inflicted from Babri masjid demolition.

This point of time to prevent them the Government needs to take strict actions against political provoking them for votes. This further needs nurturance of education for peace and harmony to younger generations.

Illiteracy is one of the major social issues which come under types of social issues like education inequality and social inequality:-

State-wise Kerala boasts 93.91% but more focus should be on states like Bihar with 68.8% literacy rate; however, India’s literacy rate in India has increased. There should be a focus on such regions with high illiteracy rate for India’s all-round progress and as education has become the biggest weapon in present times. Education should be motivated by the Government or at the individual level by joining hands with NGO to teach underprivileged sections.

Violence against women is one of the major social issues which come under types of social issues like crime and the justice system:-

There is a new black spot emerging over India as tourists globally warned about the rape history of India. This range with an array of brutal crimes is it inside the house or outside. The Delhi Nirbhaya case shocked the country and now the capital of the country is considered rape capital.

The reason being the estimations of rapes are surprising and increasing. This has led to an urgent need for initiatives by Government, education to younger ones and Indian society as a whole to stand against it. 

Indian Government along with citizens should drive effective changes that will change the dream of developed India into reality sooner.
