Some topics which could be helpful in upcoming bank exams

Caste System in India
Inclusion of caste in data collection of census 2011 seems benign & insignificant issue. A close look at this will forces us to go back to the historical debates on caste based political reservation and its impact on social inclusion. Nowhere in world there is slavery, followed by feudalism, taken such a rigid form of mutually exclusice social estates, namely castes in India. The reason for this lies in multiplicity of disabilities heaped upon socially marginalised section of society called

DALITS or socially excluded people. The caste system in India is mainly through ideology of ritual degradation. Constitution Framers were aware of the reality, so they prescribed policy ofreservation as a means to mitigate social, economic, cultural disempowerment of these excluded people. No doubt reservation has helped to ameliorate social and economic situations of millions of people who has slave like scondition at the time of independence.
However in democratic system it has become a tool for political parties.
All over the world identity politics, in name of race, minorities, immigrants has tended to bypass the core issue of exploitation, poverty & marginlity, thus destorting the democratic functioning of political institutions.
What to learn from CWG 2010
If India can organise a Republic Day parade every year with great efficiency, and could recently host successfully World Military Games, why did it mess up the organisation of the
Commonwealth
Games
(CWG)?
What is common to successful mass events is an empowered structure with clear demarcation of responsibility and accountability. The CWG failed due to an absence of a centralised command structure. Responsibilities were not demarcated, there were too many “Indians” and no chiefs, and, what is more, everyone had an excuse not to own up responsibility. Even a small analysis of this structure would point to the fact that the coordination of such a complex body cannot be vested with a committee which has no authority over the key delivery partners. In the Indian context, hierarchy and individual egos play a vital role in the smooth functioning of the organisation. At times, collective organisational goals are sacrificed to fulfill individual aspirations. Presumably, these considerations caused undue delays of about two years before the OC came into existence on February 10, 2005 — a faulty and toothless structure from day one. Although representatives of all the delivery partners were constituted on the committee, raising alarms at the CWG meetings, when deadline after deadline failed to be met by their parent organisation, is not a practical proposition.
What is needed in the globalised, highly competitive and demanding environment is to professionalise our decision-making structures to include experts in negotiations, project management and other niche areas.
Integration of the ministry with the armed forces by placing uniformed professionals at appropriate desks of the ministry is a successful model practised by other democracies.
The CWG 2010 has brought disrepute to the country due to delays in implementation despite seven years to prepare. We can live with it, for soon it will be forgotten.

Q1) What are capital gains? What are the Pros & Cons of taxing capital gains?
Ans) Capital gains accure when value of capital assets increases and are realised when asset is sold in the market.

Pros
1) Capital gains are unearned increments occuring due to working of market forces and so the gains really belong to the society and not to owner.
2) Complete abolition of capital gain tax will result in manipulation of many non capital to capital transactions.
3) Capital gain tax tampers capital mobility.

Cons
1) Such a tax penalises savers and discourages capital information.
2) Problems like differentiating capital and non capital transactions also arises on the imposition of a capital gain tax.
3) Bunching and timing problems : Should the taxes be assessed and collected on the basis of accrual or realised basis.

Q2) “Man is maker of his own Destiny”. Explain this statement with suitable examples.
Ans) Among all the living beings, man is the only living being who is free to choose. This freedom of choice entails that man will choose responsibility.
The statement above does not come from any existential philosopher, but the tenor of the statement is akin to existentialism, which make nam responsible for anything he does.
The sacred book GITA alsoholds man responsible for all his actions and karmawhich ultimately determines his fate or destiny.
It is quite natural to assert therefore, that if a man is free to choose his actions he must be maker of his own destiny. Law of karma assert the truth that “one reaps what one sows”. For your actions are like the seeds which give the fruits- good or bad, bitter or sweet, tasty or sour. But for the critics it is not the same, to them man is too insignificant, too powerless, and too small before the infinite universe with its infinite forces. He as good as a floating object in the ocean whose waves toss him hither and thither.
There are examples of great men like Napoleon and Alexander who rose to great heights from number beginning.
In human history there are any nu8mber of examplesof discoverers and scientists who toiled day and night to bring something new to the world, this was result of their hard work. therefore no doubt “Man is maker of his destiny”.

All students are requested to add some points in these questions which they think are missing from our answers, we will be grateful to them.
