FOR STARTERS, what makes a country a super power one could discern this from the characteristics of the countries, which have been acknowledged as important powers in the second half of the 20th century.All of them have1) A sizeable but manageable population [barring perhaps china].2) Are endowed with unity, political cohesion and stability.3) Structured their national economic orders which are productive and competitive.4) Trained manpower resources and high level of technological capacities.5) High levels of defense or possession of nuclear and missile weaponisation6) Practically all are democracies.Keeping these benchmarks in view, is India capable of great power status in the 21st century? Theaspects favouring us are despite cogitation and tension, we are democracy in which civil society is highlycommitted to democratic institutions, we have trained manpower resources, we have high technologicalpotentialities, we possess’ nuclear weapons and missile capacities. We are now a leading country in theworld community.In the last two decades, India has emerged as second fastest growing country in the world after china –averaging about six per cent growth per year. Goldman Sachs projected that over the next 50 years, Indiawill be the fastest growing of the world’s major economies largely because of its work force will not age asfast as others. The report indicated that in 10 years, India’s economy will be larger than Italy’s and in 15years will overtake the United Kingdom. By 2050, it will be five times the size of Japan and its per capitaincome will rise to 35 times its current level. It’s worth mentioning that India’s current growth rate isactually higher than the study assumed. One of the most touted outcomes of India’s growth rate at least inthe economic press, is the rise of a new “super rich” class of individuals, mostly in the corporate sector.India’s $14 billion luxury goods market has lured international brands like Omega, Rolex, Tag Heuer,Cartier, Tommy Hilfiger, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana,80 million Indians have mobile phones and 2.5 million new customers sign up every month. Phones arenow status symbols. Nokia’s $39,000 worth Vertu Signature studded with white platinum, aimedspecifically at Indians. The number of Indian air travelers is up 125 per cent since 2003 and travel agentspitch European holidays to middle class families who pay on the installment plan. All this shows that theIndian consumer is rearing for action. In India, the individual is a king. The credit card industry is growingat 35 per cent yearly. Personal consumption makes up a straggling seven per cent of gross domesticproduct (GDP) in India much higher than china or any other Asian country.Besides these wonderful facts, India is as independent society like the world wealthiest nation – the US.Indian society has diverged from its past and is at present open, vibrant and above all ready for a change.It is a successful democracy that has finally empowered its people economically. One of the world’spoorest countries, India has sustained democracy for almost 60 years. In fact, a country with 17 major languages and 22,000 dialects and all the major world religions – cannot really govern any other way.I hold the view that India has become super power and can become more powerful provided:-1) We consolidate our national unity and ensure our political stability.2) We undertake a positive programme on public health and public education.3) We must view moderniation in a wider manner.4) We undertake programmes to enhance our scientific and technological capacities on a continuousbasis.5) We do not succumb to under national pressure and do not in any way reduce our defense, nuclear andmissile capacities.6) We concentrate on our efforts to establish cooperation and working relation with all our neighboringcountries.India’s aspiration to great power status is logical and legitimate in terms of its geo-strategic, demographic,ideological and social cultural characteristics. Super power status is a possibility for India. Today isdefinitely India’s moment - a moment when the country can grasp and forge a new path for itself.
OMTEX CLASSES“THE HOME OF SUCCESS”Disaster management is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding risks. It is adiscipline that involves preparing for disaster before it occurs, disaster response(e.g. emergency evacuation, quarantine, mass decontamination, etc.), as well assupporting, and rebuilding society after natural or human-made disasters haveoccurred. In general, any Emergency management is the continuous process bywhich all individuals, groups, and communities manage hazards in an effort to avoidor ameliorate the impact of disasters resulting from the hazards. Actions takendepend in part on perceptions of risk of those exposed.[2] Effective emergencymanagement relies on thorough integration of emergency plans at all levels of government and non-government involvement. Activities at each level (individual,group, community) affect the other levels. It is common to place the responsibilityfor governmental emergency management with the institutions for civil defense orwithin the conventional structure of the emergency services. In the private sector,emergency management is sometimes referred to as business continuity planning. THERE ARE THREE PHASES OF DISASTER MANAGEMENT
In the preparedness phase, emergency managers develop plans of action for when the disaster strikes. Common preparedness measures include:
communication plans with easily understandable terminology and methods.
 proper maintenance and training of emergency services, including mass human resourcessuch ascommunity emergency response teams.
development and exercise of emergency population warningmethods combined withemergency sheltersandevacuation plans.
stockpiling, inventory, and maintain disaster supplies and equipment Etc.RESPONSE
The response phase includes the mobilization of the necessaryemergency servicesandfirst responders in thedisaster area. This is likely to include a first wave of coreemergency services, such asfirefighters,policeandambulancecrews. When conducted as a military operation, it is termed
Disaster Relief Operation
(DRO) and can be afollow-up to a Non-combatant evacuation operation(NEO). They may be supported by anumber of secondary emergency services, such as specialist rescue teams.
A well rehearsed emergency plan developed as part of the preparedness phase enablesefficient coordination of rescue Where required,search and rescueefforts commence atan early stage. Depending on injuries sustained by the victim, outside temperature, andvictim access to air and water, the vast majority of those affected by a disaster will diewithin 72 hours after impact.
The aim of the recovery phase is to restore the affected area to its previous state. It differs fromthe response phase in its focus; recovery efforts are concerned with issues and decisions thatmust be made after immediate needs are addressed.
Recovery efforts are primarily concernedwith actions that involve rebuilding destroyed property, re-employment, and the repair of other 
essential infrastructure.
An important aspect of effective recovery efforts is taking advantage of a ‘window of opportunity’
for the implementation of mitigative measures that might otherwise be unpopular. Citizens of the affected area are more likely to accept more mitigative changeswhen a recent disaster is in fresh memory.In the United States, the National Response Plandictates how the resources provided by theHomeland Security Act of 2002will be used in recovery efforts.
 It is the Federal governmentthat often provides the most technical and financial assistance for recovery efforts in the UnitedStates.
Computers today are one of the important things we are using. They have helped alot in compiling a lot data which used to be in hard records. One of the uses orbenefits of computers is that they are able to provide and retrieve information soquickly so they have increased the pace of our work. The increase in the speed of work has helped us to do many things with less resources like in past a lot of manpower was used for record keeping and files and other things were made tokeep the records saved. This is one use of computers in our lives other than that computers has helped us towork with machines which have the ability to produce the best quality of productswith maximum speed and efficiency. In today's world it is necessary that to cater forsuch a heavy population things are made at the higher pace with best quality, so itis possible with the help of computer that we are able to cater for the need of quantity and quality of products required in daily life.Computer really works with lightning speed. With its accuracy we can do any type of work without any error. Computer courses are now necessary for every student. It isvery much helpful for their feature.Computer is also helping us in education of children, it has enabled us to get theinformation form one part of the world to the other at a very rapid pace. So insummary computer today is in every walk of life, and is helping us a lot indeveloping at a fast pace.ADD YOUR OWN POINTS
