Australia: 5-year-old Sikh boy denied school enrolment for wearing turban 17.1.2017 DNA: Top News
A five-year-old Sikh boy has been denied school enrolment in Australia for wearing turban as it does not align with its uniform policy, despite a landmark ruling in 2008 against a private institution on the issue.  "It is disappointing that my son has been forced to abandon his religious practices and identity to access to an education in Melbourne's Melton Christian College (MCC)," Sagardeep Singh Arora was quoted as saying by the SBS TV. "We have lodged a claim with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC)." "I believe having a common school uniform is important in promoting school identity and integration," Arora said. "Students should be able to wear their significant religious symbols and articles of faith. It's immoral for a school to not allow students to practice their beliefs." "We were in discussions regarding the importance of hair & turban in Sikhism and acceptance of turban as uniform by different organisations (like schools, army, and police) in Australia and the ...

The capital is set to have its first wildlife census since the Delhi government notified the lands of Asola Bhatti area as a wildlife sanctuary in 1991. The Delhi government's department of forests and wildlife is getting ready for the census to be conducted in October. According to forest officials, there are many species of reptiles, striped hyenas, jackals, foxes, nilgais, hares and antelopes, among others. "The variety of striped hyena in the area is rare.

Youth bulge may become a bane for India, says US intel report 14.1.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
A US intelligence report analysing global trends has said that in the wake of unmatched economic progress, youth bulge may prove a bane rather than a boon for India. After every four years, when results of the presidential elections are out, the National Intelligence Council (NIC) of the US releases a long-term strategic analysis for the new administration, parts of which are declassified for public debate. A 256-page report, released here by NIC officer Robert S Williams for South Asia, says India needs to create as many as 10 million jobs every year in the coming decade. Even in the global context, the NIC, which in the US, serves as a bridge between the intelligence and policy communities, has predicted rising tensions within and between countries of different regions over the next five years. According to the 2011 census, around 41 per cent of India’s population is below the age of 20 years. By 2020, India is set to become the world’s youngest country, with 64 per cent in the working age ...
