11th October 2012 was declared and inaugurated as International Day of Girls by the United General Assembly and is being celebrated with great fervour to instil confidence and empower the Girls of the world with education and skills of employment .

The situation as on today we need to know and contribute our mite to improve the prospects of girls power to an independent respectable lives.

A / 98 million girls drop out of secondary schools.

B/ About 12 million girls are married before the age of 18 every year.

C/ Approximately 6,500 to 7000 adolescent girls (aged 15 to 24) get infected with HIV every week.

When adolescent girls around the world are educated, amazing things start to happen. Poverty goes down, economies grow, families get stronger, babies are born healthier, and the world, by all accounts, gets better. But progress doesn’t happen overnight.

That is why the Obama Foundation’s Global Girls Alliance program is teaming up with GoFundMe to encourage people around the world to take action in support of girls education. We are providing a platform for grassroots leaders to seek funding for projects that can break down the physical, cultural, and financial walls that keep adolescent girls from getting an education and fulfilling their potential.”

A skilled Girl Force , one more Independant Organization,

is working hard to bring together partners and stakeholders together to absolve most pressing needs to train the girls for right skills to take up gainful employment .

This is stupendous task as 600 million adolescent girls will walk into the world’s workforce in the next 10 years. With 90% of those from the developing countries ,where low pay ,exploitation and human trafficking are some of the other challenges to be addressed to simultaneously.

The Govt Of India under illustrous PM Mr Nrender Modi has ,for instance ,started an ambitious campaign “Beti Bachao Beti Padav” a few years back to empower girls with education and safe environment to be economically independent and thus leading progressive lives to build a prosperous strong nation.

Girls are moving neck to neck to men in almost all walks of life to alleviate the poverty of the masses.

It is worth mentioning here that India as Country has been fighting the menace of conservative coercive social dogmatic male dominated society to enforce girls and boys both for free education through different Government Schemes since Independence itself resulting in the upliftment of vast educated women work force in all sections of society.

It is better to quote our great leader ISTPrime Minister Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru , who revered women power as essential to propel the society and Nation to great  heights.

Pt Nehru said ” the condition of Nation can be explained by looking at the status of women /girl.”

Conclusions

Every individual across the world can make a difference by associating one way or the other to embolden the spirit of Girls’ power to make a better beautiful world.

Some of the following actions could be thought of.

  1. .Relate the amazing great stories of your family women members to the next generation to induce and motivate them n for doing better in theirlives. . Quote their bright achievements as examples to excel. Grandmothers stories can be great tranquilisers.
  2. Yank out your old albums and frame some outstanding photos of your illustrious forefathers to apprise your girls boys of their valour stories.
  3. Be a philontropist.

Always be sporty to donate a small sum for the welfare of Girls and women organizations of world repute. Your small mite may contribute to the fortunes of many.

  1. Make a resolution to fight for the safety of Girls and women from sexual beasts. Rape is a great menace in the society of the world ,why not to address it seriously through by highlighting the causes at the national international forums.

According to the recent research from the university of Essex ,the more you nag your daughter the more successful she  will be in her life.

The nagging from primary parents, Father or Mother only can be more effective to achieve successful results .Expressing high expectations leads to more successful careers.

So be a positive Parent.

AFGHANISTAN IN TURMOIL

Assault on City of Ghazni

 

Afghanistan continues to be in turmoil ,having no respite whatsoever, the latest  assault (midnight11th August 2018) on the city of Ghazni, engulfing almost all city’s 19 districts ,was most planned lethal operation on Nationwide scale by Taliban.

The City of Ghazni ,less than 100 miles from the capital Kabul ,was literary burning ,as Taliban laid siege to the city in a surprise attack, pounding with bomb craters capturing the districts ,thereby ravaging the provincial capital city to shreds.

The carnage and devastating war remains in the city of 1,50,000 were eye sore for the Afghans .

The Afghan soldiers numbering 1500 no match to the massive onslaught of Taliban and struggling to contain the resurgent Taliban.

As per TIME an average of 7 adults and two children out of ten were killed every day in the past six months of this year.

The figures show 2018 as the deadliest year of the war.

The battle of Ghazni did not come out of the blue.

Five of the US special forces teams along with 150 Afghan commands had left the City to fight ISISK—ISISKhorasan, an offshoot of Syrian based Terrorist group operating in Afghanistan since 2015,. ISISK had terrorised the people in Nangarhar provinces ,through executions , attacking Govt buildings , including a suicide bombings.

The group conducted suicide boming at a Kabul education centre killing dozens of people instantly.

The joint operation carried successfully to quell the ISISK attack by killing around 200 fighters and freeing the occupied territories.                                                          Source Time

The Taliban took advantage of the absence of US special forces in the city of Ghazni and sneaked in stealthily with weapons and fighters with the connivance of some security guards guarding the city borders.

The Taliban insurgents attacked Govt buildings, destroyed Telecommunication center, burnt down the TV station in one go, thus bringing the throbbing City to a grinding halt.

The US special operations Command responded instantly by deploying 12 –man Green Beret Teams from Ist special Forces group along with Afghan Forces ,knowing well to take alternative longer route because of land mines being planted along the main  road to the Ghazni city.

The US and Afghan joint forces fought relentlessly for five consecutive days to inflict severe damages on the Taliban vehicles and fighters and occupied the make shift post on the outskirts of the city.

The Taliban fighters retreated and the fighting had died down significantly.

The Afghan Soldiers supported by American special forces aided by Fighters -16, MQ Reaper aerial drones fought   fiercely and routed the enemy completely within five days. The Afghan Forces and American special forces of joint operation pushed deeper into the city further to drive out the Taliban completely from the city areas occupied temporarily.

Nearly 226 Taliban insurgents were killed in the operation .

 

“Tactically, operationally and strategically, the Taliban achieved nothing with this failed attack except another eye-catching, but inconsequential headline,” said U.S. Army Lieut. Colonel Martin O’Donnell, spokesman for the U.S.-led international military coalition in Kabul

  Brigadier General Dadan Lawang, the commander of the Afghan National Army’s 203rd Corps, said that 112 Afghan military and police were killed, and 56 were wounded. He said his team was reviewing its security posture to guard against future attacks. “We need to ensure this never happens again,” he says.                                            source Time

 

 Conclusion  

Afghanistan is rattling with war for over two decades with little or no hope of peace.

The Trump administration’s long military strategy  defending the population areas ,leaving remote countryside to Taliban does not seem to be in tune with ground realties.

The President of Afghanistan Mr Ashraf Ghani on August 17 blamed Pakistan for the Ghazni attack by Taliban. “ the Taliban fighters are streaming back across Pakistan borders.” He said angrily looking at the devastations caused in the city of Ghazni.

The Taliban need to be annihilated for good.

The Afghanistan needs to seal borders completely and through diplomatic channels bring pressure on Pakistan through other Muslim friendly countries to desist from assisting Taliban .

Trump needs to seize the opportunity to usher peace to the ravaged country by providing technical  assistance in insulating borders to stop insurgents crossing over to Afghanistan apart from the current military partnership already in place.
