  • Mob Behaviour

    A very disturbing trend of violent mob behaviour has erupted in some parts of the country lately. Lynching a woman over a rumour of child abduction is quite unnerving for any normal person.
  • Impact of addiction on family and society

    Addiction is a bio-psycho-social disease, meaning genetic predisposition interacts with certain social and psychological factors to manifest the disease, which could otherwise have remained dormant for the rest of someone’s life.
  • Job satisfaction

    Culture is powerful because it is so deeply entrenched in the psyche and lifestyle of a population that it becomes very difficult to name it, separate or identify it even though we know it exists. Culture of a population is palpable at every area of life including workplace.
  • Healing from grief

    Many people today do not know how to grieve in a healthy way. In a fast paced society, people often have no time to allow this natural process to complete its course.
  • “She asked for it”

    Sexual violence against women is often justified by putting blame on women. If a woman gets sexually assaulted, the whole of society tends to point fingers at the woman.
