Buy Books Online At Flipkart.com As Neil Gaiman said, “A book is a dream that you hold in your hand”. Imagine, if you could escape into your dreams, visit mythical places and travel back and forth in time. Experience the thrill of letting your imagination go wild. Books have that kind of power. They teleport you to places you might not otherwise get to see in your lifetime. Many people take up book reading in different ways. Come to think of it, you can classify book readers into a few categories: the hopelessly devoted reader, the all-the-timer/compulsive/voracious/anything-goes reader and the occasional reader. The first two groups are those who cannot live without books. Wherever they go, whatever they do, they need a book with them. They even read between work, or while they eat, just because they can't put the book down. You get the picture, right? And then, there is the last group of readers, who only pick up books when they have free time to spare. They are not as addicted to reading as the first two categories of readers. Comics: Whoever thinks that comics are only for kids, has never been more wrong. From Superman and Spiderman to Wonder Woman and Black Widow, comics bring to you a world of superheroes that can inspire you to become a better human being. You can add Marvel: Superhero Legends, The Avengers - Battle Against Loki and Marvel Adventures Spider-Man to this category. Also, let us not forget the wise world of Calvin and Hobbes comics or the adventurous tales in Tintin comics. Short Stories: If you do not have the patience to sit through long novels, and want your tales to be short and sweet, then short stories are for you. Books, such as The New Collected Short Stories by Jeffrey Archer, Interpreter of Maladies: Stories of Bengal, Boston and Beyond by Jhumpa Lahiri, Love Among the Bookshelves by Ruskin Bond and Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman, fall into the category of short stories. Novels: Whether you are a diehard fan of the Harry Potter series, or you love to delve into the thrilling world of The Millennium Trilogy, novels keep you on the edge of your seat with action-packed tales of adventures. They are often long, and are best for readers who devour books like popcorn. Since we are talking about novels, let us not forget the novellas. These books are shorter than novels but the tales are longer than short stories. Nonfiction Books: From how-to and technical books to text and reference books, you can find a host of nonfiction titles online. Apart from them, you can also find spiritual, motivational and religious books online. If you are taking a competitive exam, you can seek guidance from entrance exam preparatory books. Biographies and Autobiographies: These books tread a fine line between fiction and nonfiction. They are usually filled with factual events from a person’s life, but can also feature hearsay on certain occasions. Books like Wings of Fire: An Autobiography by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, My Story by Kamala Das, My Experiments With Truth by Mahatma Gandhi are some of the well-known autobiographies. Captain Cool: The M. S. Dhoni Story by Gulu Ezekiel and Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson are a few popular biographies that you can consider reading. Buy Books Online If you are someone who loves reading, then online shopping can be a boon for you. With so many titles available from various publishing houses, these sites offer great discounts coupons online on your favourite books. So if you were planning to build a library of your own, this is the right time to do so.

Andhra Pradesh Has Highest Number Of Working Women In India, Uttar Pradesh Lowest

  webmaster       December 28, 2016
Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Bihar had low rates of workforce participation among urban women.
Women in India want to work but cannot or do not due to family responsibilities, lack of skills and social norms. India is ranked 139 among 145 countries on the economic participation and opportunity sub index, in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2015.
In the rankings by indicator, India stood 136th in female labour force participation rate.
Women’s workforce participation in India is the lowest among the BRICS nations. A range of countries, such as Bahrain, Malaysia and even Somalia (37%), do much better, IndiaSpend reported in March 2015.
Female workforce participation rate- defined as the percentage of the population that is either employed or unemployed (that is, either working or actively seeking work)- in India rose from 25.8% in 2012-13 to 27.4% in 2015-16, according to data from the ministry of labour.

The increase has been mainly due to an increase in rural women taking up work- from 28.4% in 2012-13 to 31.7% in 2015-16. Over the same period, there was a decline in the workforce participation for urban women- from 19.2% to 16.6%.
There is a wide variation among the states.

While Uttar Pradesh and Bihar had some of the lowest female workforce participation rates-with 15.5% and 18.1% – states such as Rajasthan and Jharkhand did much better than national average of 31.1%. All the southern states have scored better than the national average, with Andhra Pradesh being the highest (51.3%).
UP, Rajasthan, and Bihar had low rates of workforce participation among urban women, with the lowest being in Bihar (9.3%), while Andhra Pradesh was the highest at 35.1%.
Some reasons for the low female workforce participation rate:
Women want to work. National Sample Survey (NSS) data show that 31% of women who spend the majority of their time performing domestic duties would like some kind of job. The proportion of educated rural women who want to work is even higher: More than 50% would like a job apart from their domestic work. If all women who expressed a desire to work did so, Female Labour Force Participation Rate in India would rise 21 percentage points (to 78%), according to a pilot survey of rural, below-poverty-line youth in areas around Bhopal, conducted by Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) at Harvard.
Distance to place of work: The EPoD survey found that 93% of unemployed female youth said they would take a job if they could work from home or in the village. In contrast to the national labour market, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA)- the country’s rural jobs programme- has seen increased participation from women over the last five years, and now (2016) employs slightly more women (52%) than men (48%).
Skilling: “Initiatives such as Skill India, Make in India, and new gender-based quotas–from corporate boards to the police force–can spur positive change. But we need to invest in skill training and job support,” according to an article written by Charity Moore Director of EPoD. Further, the opportunities that exist need to be equitable. From 2010 to 2012, women’s share in the manufacturing labour-force rose from 15 to 25%, but the gender wage gap across sectors in manufacturing was highmuch higher than in services.
Unsafe to travel’: As much as 62% of unemployed female youth–similar to 68% of unemployed young men–said they would consider migrating for a job, according to the EPoD survey. Despite reporting they would be willing to consider migrating for work, 69% of female youth said it is unsafe to live away from home (this time, in the context of skills training), compared to only 32% of male youth.
