  6. OH i forgot to write about land acquisition problem in PPP.
    how important a point was that?

  7. I wrote on Working women issue.
    I started with the question, as it was a question put on. I asked fair deal? fair deal from whom? Govt., State, Employers, In-laws, Parental home, husband, children, and lastly from themselves and most importantly from the society as a whole. I cross checked it across the society, since it was about indian working woman, I checked it through those in organized sector, then in agricultural sector, then tribal society, domestic helps. I made a mesh wire with these two approaches. I evaluated both the negative and positive side of work and home management in interrelation and in different contexts as mentioned above. I did wrote the conclusion that our society as a whole, which is patriarchal is never giving the fair deal to the working woman in managing work and home. I did mention the proposal of half a month salary to be given to the woman as spoken in some quarters. Since I made a mesh, I could write a lot. I ended up writing 17 pages. It was difficult not to deviate from the topic i.e. managing work and home, but I tried to relate the mesh with it at every point. I don’t know how much I will get, but last year I attempted Indian cinema topic(again in question form) and wrote 18 pages and got 108 marks.
