Answer :

In today’s world only wealthy people can afford to be healthy

(For the motion)

Is it that in today’s world only wealthy people can afford to be healthy? The answer to this is a big ‘yes’. Today I speak in favor of the motion as I believe that only wealthy people can avail timely medical facilities.

If you open the newspaper on any morning you will find a small column talking about the death of a person due to untimely treatment. But if you read it more carefully you will notice that it was a person with a poor economic background and lack of access to medical facilities. On the other hand if a rich person suffers from an untimely treatment it would become a major case and the entire medical fraternity would be held responsible for such a death. Why does this happen? The basic reason behind this is that the poor people are the ones who live without nutritious food or proper sanitation facilities. On the other hand rich people find it much easier to get access to medical facilities. They have the access to healthy and nutritious food and live in a clean and hygienic environment. This difference points towards the fact that money makes it quite easier to access any facility. If the wealthy people face any serious illness they can simply move to a foreign country and get the best treatment under the latest technology whereas the poor ones have no option but to rely completely on the local doctor.

Thus in today’s world the rich people have always had an upper hand over the poor ones be it in terms of medical care or any other facilities.

In today’s world only wealthy people can afford to be healthy

(Against the motion)

Is it that in today’s world only wealthy people can afford to be healthy? The answer to this is a ‘no’. Today I speak against the motion as I believe that everyone in the society has the access to medical facilities.

We cannot simply blame the rich people for being rich. They are only using what is already available to them and why would a person not make use of resources that they have. Also a lot is being done for the betterment of the poor people. This improvement is being made on medical, educational and sanitation facilities with a view to provide a cleaner and healthier environment to everyone. We cannot deny the efforts of the Government in making available free medical care to poor people and implementation of welfare schemes like health insurance. We need to accept that a change takes time and what has been done wrong for years will take more time to be good again. There has been a lot of development in the rural areas where a major section of poor people are situated and there has been a drop in the mortality rate with the increase in health consciousness of the people.

If we want to bring about a revolutionary change then even we need to give our contribution to it. Simply putting all the blame on the rich section doesn’t give us a solution.


The Rising Crime of Child Lifting

By Avantika

One of the biggest problems of our society is frequent cases of missing small children but this issue has not gained much attention especially on the media front.

With the fast growing development, the rate of crime has also been growing. There are legislations that already exist or have been newly passed but for its effective implementation the culprit needs to be caught. Child lifting has recently become a major crime in the recent times. Children are easy targets as they can be easily convinced and they tend to believe in people very soon. There are gangs of people who are engaged in such crimes because it is a source of easy money for them. They kidnap children and blackmail their parents for ransom against the safety of their children. They also warm them not to inform the police or they would harm their child. Out of fear and concern most of the parents find it easier to give away ransom and get back their child. This is just one form of crime. Some people lift children especially girls for crimes like human trafficking. Some of them even indulge in sale of organs of these small children. These people usually belong to the unemployed class who has been a subject to poor economic conditions which force them to take the wrong path for money. They take advantage of the communication gap between parents and children and usually target such families which leave their children go out all alone. Many of these people become a servant or maid in the family which help them gain their trust and make their work easier.

It is the responsibility of parents to keep in touch with their children and until they are capable of taking care of themselves they shouldn’t be left alone all the time even on the trust of a worker. Even social media plays a role in providing information about the daily schedule of a child because teenagers these days are prone to uploading pictures of their life every now and then.
