Online learning & COVID-19 pandemic
By:- Yasreel Qureshi( M.sc. Chemistry)
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and rapid spread
came as a shock to countries around the world, infecting and
killing thousands of people around the globe which led to the
World Health Organization (WHO) to declare it a pandemic
The education sector is one of the largest and most delicate
social sectors that has been adversely affected by COVID-19 in
India and other countries around the world. The outbreak of COVID-19 results in the digital revolution in the higher education system through online lectures, teleconferencing, digital open books, online examination, and interaction at virtual environments (Strielkowski, 2020,, Kumar, 2020). The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a massive adaptation in health professions education, with a shift from in-person learning activities to a sudden heavy reliance on internet-mediated education because of the sudden need for physical distancing. Some health professions schools will have already had considerable educational technology and cultural infrastructure in place, making such a shift more of a different emphasis in provision. For others, this shift will have been a considerable dislocation for both educators and learners in the provision of education. In the move to online learning, managing the learners and educators is one of the most challenging and critical aspects. It is a massive, disruptive shift to move all the existing courses online in a matter of days. In general, a complete online course requires an elaborate lesson plan design, teaching materials such as audio and video contents, as well as technology support teams. However, due to the sudden emergence of the COVID‐19, most faculty members are facing the challenges of lacking online teaching experience, early preparation, or support from educational technology teams. In addition to the challenges to the faculty, existing research indicates that more than 60% of Students have been facing various problems related to depression anxiety, poor internet connectivity, and unfavorable study environment at home. Students from remote areas and marginalized sections mainly face enormous challenges for the study during this pandemic. Poverty further exacerbates the problem of the digital learning process in this unwanted crisis period. Although a substantial proportion of students are using digital platforms for learning, many of them face huge challenges in online study. The purpose of this article is to argue about the question whether COVID-19 is the gateway for digital-learning in education? I 'd love to hear any thoughts at all on this topic.

#SAVE FUTURE OF POOR GIRLS FROM SUICIDE... ⬇️
DOWRY DOWRY DOWRY
"MESSAGE FOR ALL AND YOU ALWAYS WANT TO KNOW WHY OUR SISTERS DO SUICIDE THEN NOW HARK FROM THE TRUTH OF SIKANDAR BHAT WHO ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE YOU REAL HUMAN BEING BUT ONCE ONLY YOU SHOULD HAVE TO PROMISE WITH ME STOP GIVE AND TAKE DOWRY THAT IS CURSE AND SIN ALSO"
The dowry system in Kashmir refers to the durable goods, cash, and real or movable property that the bride's family gives to the bridegroom, his parents, or his relatives as a condition of the marriage. Dowry stemmed from Kashmirians skewed inheritance laws, and the Hindu Succession Act needed to be amended to stop the routine disinheritance of daughters. Dowry is essentially in the nature of a payment in cash or some kind of gifts given to the bridegroom's family along with the bride and includes cash, jewellery, electrical appliances, furniture, bedding, crockery, utensils, vehicles and other household items that help the newlyweds set up their home. Dowry is referred to as Dahez in Arabic. In the far eastern parts of India, dowry is called Aaunnpot. Wedding gifts for the son of the Imam of Delhi, India, with soldiers and 2000 guests and same to same in Kashmir. The dowry system can put great financial burden on the bride's family. In some cases, the dowry system leads to crime against women, ranging from emotional abuse and injury to even deaths. The payment of dowry has long been prohibited under specific Indian laws including the Dowry Prohibition Act 1961 and subsequently by Sections 304B and 498A of the Indian Penal Code. The Dowry Prohibition Act 1961 defines dowry: "Dowry means any property or valuable security given or agreed to be given either directly or indirectly (a) By one party in marriage to the other party in marriage or (b) By the parents of either party to a marriage or by any other person to either party to marriage or to any other persons;at or before or after the marriage as consideration for the marriage of the said parties, but does not include dower or mahr in the case of persons to whom the Muslim Personal law applies.

#Fresh Update From Fatehpora
The following picture exhibits the condition of roads in Fatehpora Ganderbal which is prototype in Ganderbal. "SHAME ON OUR DEPARTMENT ON THIS BACKWARDNESS AND ON THIS POORNESS". Due to
Poor conditioned road in Fatehpora Ganderbal causes extreme air pollution nowadays. Newborns and the elderly are increasingly suffering from respiratory diseases. The situation is the same for hundreds and thousands of people using the Fatehpora Ganderbal who are suffering greatly because of extreme dust pollution which is causing respiratory diseases and road safety hazards.
When I went to the site to experience the acute problem firsthand, and saw that due to the dense formations of dust particles in the air, people on either side of the highway cannot see each other across the road. All the shops and other buildings situated in Fatehpora are covered with thick layers of grey dust and the passengers waiting for their buses are trying their best to stay away from the unavoidable dust storms caused by the passing vehicles. Even the places and stalls where someone might go to have refreshments or eat, potential customers cannot as all the chairs and tables are covered with sand and dust.
With great dismay, people who regularly travel this route explained how the clothes they wear become covered with dust and sand; even just waiting five minutes for transportation. They find this an embarrassing situation to contend with. According to the local businessmen, due to intense air pollution, the number of consumers coming to stores is reduces daily. Meanwhile, a wide variety of diseases are spreading among the people of this area; especially affecting the elderly and newborns. Local Residents, said: "The unbearable dust formations and air pollutants have made our lives miserable and have become a major issue for us to efficiently perform our duties. "Various officers, along with the locals, are suffering from various diseases. This situation needs to be addressed and resolved as soon as possible or else things will worsen for all of us." "People who are exposed to such adverse and extreme dust are prone to obtaining serious types of respiratory diseases including lung infections and asthma, nose bleeds, and permanent damage to their sense of smell. The risk is even higher for newborns and the elderly." "That there is brick flat soling, on this road as important as this, is just ridiculous and incomprehensible. Necessary steps need to be taken as soon as possible."

"New Custom in Kashmir-Rich, then what type of root are you"
Report By Sikandar Bhat
The Jammu and Kashmir government announced some unexpected measures to curb misuse of resources and essential commodities. The state government has imposed a restriction on the number of guests at weddings and at small functions related to them with effect from April 1, 2017, said an ANI report. According to the notification, the number of guests at the wedding ceremony of a daughter and a son to 500 and 400 respectively. For smaller functions like engagements, the number of guests has been restricted to 100. The Jammu and Kashmir government has also banned the use of loudspeakers and firecrackers in any government/private social functions. The state government has also banned sending sweets or dry fruits with invitation cards for functions from April 1. A similar bill has been making headlines in the past few days. A bill that puts a restriction on number of guests at weddings has been introduced in the Lok Sabha. The Bill, introduced by tainted politician Pappu Yadav's wife and Congress MP Ranjeet Ranjan says that those spending above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding must contribute towards weddings of poor girls. Talking about the Bill, Ranjan said, These days, marriages are more about showing off your wealth and as a result, poor families are under tremendous social pressure to spend more. This is needed to be checked as it is not good for society at large. Great importance should be assigned to the solemnisation of marriage between two individuals. But unfortunately, these days a tendency of celebrating marriages with pomp and show and spending lavishly growing in the country, she added. According to the Bill, if a family spends above Rs 5 lakh on a wedding, it has to contribute 10 per cent of the amount on weddings of girls from poor families. The Bill seeks that if any family intends to spend more than Rs 5 lakh towards expenditure on marriage, such family shall declare the amount proposed to be spent in advance to the appropriate government and contribute 10 per cent of such amount in a welfare fund which shall be established by the appropriate government to assist the poor and Below Poverty Line families for the marriage of their daughters. It says that after this proposed legislation comes into force, all weddings shall be registered within 60 days of the solemnisation. According to the Bill, the government may fix the limit of guests and relatives and number of dishes to be served to the guests and relatives for solemnisation of marriage or for the reception as it may deem necessary or expedient to prevent the wastage of food items.
