We live in a modern society that is strongly influenced by evolving practices and tendencies that are in stark contrast to the Indian culture. One such escalating phenomenon is the rise in the number of adolescent abortions. It is a worrisome issue that needs to be addressed by our society. Though we find a marked increase in the efforts undertaken to raise the levels of awareness pertaining to the use of contraceptive, we still find quite a large number of teenagers adopting the abortion route to end pregnancies.
Presently, we live in a day and age where the current generation faces a lot of problems due to their evolving and highly stressful lifestyle, One alarming consequence of which is the reducing longevity of an average human being. The mortality rates have spiked tremendously over the past few years. Among the various causes contributing to the reduction of the lifespan of an individual, inability to conduct timely organ transplant operations is an important issue that needs to be addressed. It has been observed that each year, an increasing number of people, more precisely, 90% of the patients enlisted on a waiting list succumb to their illnesses while waiting for an organ transplant. A rise in the awareness levels pertaining to this issue, among the masses can bring about a positive change in the situation.
Over the years, I have worked with numerous corporates to help implement an array of CSR related activities. The outcome, has always been truly outstanding. Along the way, these opportunities have helped me acquire some unique and insightful experiences, the most remarkable part of which, was witnessing the vital and openhearted contributions made by the employees towards the company’s CSR program, be it activity oriented or monetary. The personal time and efforts invested by each and every employee to help assist with the CSR related activities, demonstrated their level of involvement and perseverance in these projects. It led me to believe that the pride, internal satisfaction and happiness of sharing that is encouraged by a CSR program, cannot be matched by any other HR activity.
