Recent estimates show while all India Head Count Ratio (HCR) was 21.9 percent in 2011-12 states like Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Odisha had above all India poverty level.

He had to call a meeting of the Estates-General (a political body) which would then pass his proposals for new taxes. The population of France rose rapidly between 1715 and 1789 which led to a rapid increase in the demand for foodgrains. Due to lack of supply to meet this demand, the prices of bread which was the staple diet of the majority rose rapidly. Most workers had fixed their wages which did not keep pace with the rising prices. The gap between the poor and the rich widened. Things became worse whenever drought or hail reduced the harvest. This led to a subsistence crisis, something that occurred frequently in France during the Old Regime.

  34. The values reflected in Montesquieu’s proposal were:

    3. Montesquieu opposed the theory of ‘Divine Rights of the King’.His concept of separation of powers is a pre-requisite to eliminate corruption from the administration.

    2. Most of the workers got fixed wages and could not keep pace with the rising prices of products of daily use, as a result, the gap between the poor and rich increased.
    3. Things became worse when drought or hail almost destroyed and reduced the harvest resulting in a shortage of food grains.

    4. Many of the festivals like Baisakhi, Pongal, Onam, Bihu, etc will come to an end.
    5. There will be a shortage of food and drinking water in the country.
    6. There will be a decline in the export and increase in import affecting the economy of the country.

    3. The tropical cyclone originates over the Andaman sea and is often very destructive.
    4. By causing heavy rainfall in one part of the country (mostly the East coast), the tropical cyclone influences the distribution of rainfall in India.
    5. Thus, it can be concluded that the development of tropical cyclones is a distinguishing feature of monsoon.

    Some of the objectives of the policy can be met through the following methods-

    1. Increasing the number of trained nurses or midwives to one nurse and one midwife per village.
    2. Making generic medicines available and affordable to the people in the government hospitals and dispensaries (instead of branded medicines).


    Unemployment exists when people who are willing to work do not get work at the going wages.
    Two types of unemployment found in India are:

    1. Seasonal unemployment: ISeasonal unemployment happens when people are not able to find jobs during some months of the year. People dependant upon agriculture usually face such kind of problem. There are certain busy seasons when sowing, harvesting, weeding, threshing is done. Certain months do not provide much work to the people dependant on agriculture.
    2. Disguised unemployment: This occurs when all the members of a family of a small farmer are working in the fields, but all may not be required. Similar is the case of family-owned shops, where all family members may be working at the shop, but all are not required. Actually, they are working at less than full productivity.

    Disadvantages of unemployment are:

    1. It is a wastage of manpower and human resource.
    2. It increases economic overload in the country.
    3. It tends to increase the number of the dependent population.
    4. Increase in unemployment is an indicator of a depressed economy.
    5. It also affects the standard of living and health conditions of the people as they are not even able to fulfill the basic necessities of their lives.
  37. Due to following reasons we accept even today the Constitution made by the Constituent Assembly more than 60 years ago:
    1. India is a land of diversity that is visible in the matters of caste, religion, region, language, economic status, etc. In such a huge diversity conflict are inevitable. But, the Constitution of India protects the interests of every section of society and laid the foundation for a harmonious society.
    2. India has experience of long colonial past and it remained a victim of colonial exploitations for centuries. But, after the implementation of the Constitution, we are sovereign which means no external powers can regulate us in any matters.
    3. The Constitution of India has a flexible nature that opens enough scope for amendments if required for the welfare of its citizens. To maintain law and order, the dignity and rights of the citizens, the Constitution made some provisions for the amendment from time to time.


    WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC and to secure to all its citizens:
    JUSTICE, social, economic and political;
    LIBERTY of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship;
    EQUALITY of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all
    FRATERNITY assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation;
    A. Justice: Citizens cannot be discriminated on the ground of caste, religion and gender. Social inequalities have to be reduced. Government should work for the welfare of all, especially of the disadvantaged groups.
    B. Liberty: There are no unreasonable restrictions on the citizens in what they wish to express their thoughts and the way they wish to follow up their thought in action.
    C. Equality: All are equal before the law. The traditional social inequalities have to be ended. The government should ensure equal opportunity for all.
    D. Fraternity: All should behave as if we are members of the same family. No one should treat a fellow citizen as inferior.
