Social Problems Of Assam

Social Problems Of Assam

Assam is a north-eastern state of India. And of course you know that India is world one of the oldest country.

Do you have any idea, how old India really is? 

According to some approach Indian civilization was built before around 5000 years ago. 

its really....really  too old!

In different times people are been immigrating to this country with different languages, religion belief and multi cultural elements. 

Hence there is nothing shocking here that Indian civilization is very old and complicated. 

In present time India’s whole society is influenced by these all phenomenon that has been happening in different times and by different causes.

Assam is a part of India therefore it is natural that it is social system is highly influenced by whole India’s social norms and values. 

There is no doubt that norm and values are significant to each society to run it smooth and properly but sometimes same values become responsible boosters of creating such a social complications.

So do you want to know about the social problems of Assam?

If you really are then in this post, i will share with you 4 major social issues of Assam and of course their solutions too.

Social problems of Assam, Major social issues of Assam, Poverty, Child labor

Major Social Problems

  • Unemployment
  • Illiteracy
  • Poverty
  • Child Labor
  • Sexual Violence
  • Gender Inequality
  • Extremist Activity
  • Domestic Violence
  • Corruption

Reasons Of Social Problems

Society is the web of social relationship. Therefore no social problems are autonomous; all are related with each other. 

For an example- child laboring is a social problem but this problem is not autonomous because it is driven by some other phenomenons; like child trafficking or poverty. 

However, every society in the world has their own social unique issues than others, Assam is not far away. 

So now, lets talk about Assam's 4 major social issues........

1. Illegal Immigration: Illegal immigration is a substantial issue for Assam. There are more than four and half decade gone but illegal immigration from neighboring countries are still been generating a huge population structure in the state. 

Individually it is not impacting on population structure but furthermore leading numerous social issues, such as shelter issue, food deficiency, employment troubles etc. 

And as I told you above that no social issues are independent hence these affairs leading other additional issues in the north-eastern state.

Non-Occupation Based Education System, Assam

2. Non-Occupation Based Education System: Earning is very important to everyone’s life struggle but for earning some money one needs to do work first and every work requires skill. 

How a person will do a job, if he/she has no skill or not taught in primary level? Assam’s education policies are old and not for innovating new ideas and skill development. 

A student who educated in this system does not become able to earn some money after leaving school and colleges and left out as an unemployed. 

Non-occupation based education system is another evaluating fact of unemployment growth index in the state. 

And we already know that unemployment is one of the fastest grows seed which is responsible for many other social complications.

3.Irrational Believe System: Wealth or crisis of a society is always rest on its people’s conception procedure. 

If a society grows or falls than nothing is unique here but natives thought process. The main thing which works behind social problems in Assamese society is its people thoughts. 

This is 21st century, ages of science and technology, people are almost ready to go and build home in the Red planet but in this place majority of people are still blind believers. 

For the problems like Witch haunting, Gender inequalities are the examples of the results of irrational believe system in the state. So this is also a reason of major social problems in Assam. 

4. Impact Of Globalization: In the period of Globalization multicultural activities are spared in all over the world. 

Multicultural activities also flaring westernization and modernization in Asian countries. 

Here I am not trying to show you merits and demerits of westernization in eastern countries but western cultural thoughts are not assimilating among its most regional countries people as it should be, such as Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Nepalese etc. 

At the end, some unusual or unwanted activities happen in these societies. 

Although today western cultures flaring widely in Assamese society but sometimes there are a lot of problem arises because of its some misuses. Examples are drugs addition, sexual violence’s, prostitution etc.

Corruption in Assam

How To Solve Social Problems Of Assam

Where is no problem? 

Problem is everywhere but it completely depend on us how we try to solve it. 

Actually problem is not the problem because it is natural in a human society, until we alive in the world we have to fight against obstacles. What Elon Musk says “Problem is not the problem, to finding the solution is the biggest problem”. 

There are many social issues in Assam but each and every substantial issue has their own lock openers. Here are some points I describe below how  social issues in Assam could be solved:-

1. education for skill, skill for earning: So my very first point is education for skill, skill for earning. Now the time comes to make emendation in old education system and add some new policies. 

Present time world is shifting to its technical home and here people needs to be skilled to earn and survive. Changing and adding new technical skill development ideas in education policy will help new generation to become self independent and earn minimum bucks to fulfill their daily needs. 

Genuinely occupational science encourages people to become self determining rather than others dependency. So if this method is applied in Assam’s education system than it will be very helpful in future to reduce unemployment in the state. 

If unemployment level goes down than it will automatically reduce problems like poverty, domestic violence and robbery etc.

2. Education for quality, not for quantity: Each year large amount of students is complete graduation and post graduation also but are they actually providing values for their societies or the country? 

90% student’s perspective answer is ‘not’. Why? Because they are the graduates and post graduates of quantity only, not of quality. Percentage based education system is its main cause. 

By view point of human resource index these students are complete waste of the country. They will provide no value for the country’s development against it they only are huge burdens. 

Therefore now needs to convert the quantity based education into a quality based education. Quality means morality, spirituality and skill ability.

3. Prevent Illegal Population: With a huge population structure, a nation faces lot of issues in development purpose. 

Assam has a substantial issue of illegal immigration from neighboring countries; excess population is always an enemy of a nation’s socio-economic development. 

So here government and other regional powers have to take action peacefully to prevent this unwanted immigration. 

If it will be stopped than many other social problems will automatically solved which arises with unusual population growth.

A great sociologist once said that a society is like a human body, where each organs activity connected with each other. 

It does not matter a problem light or heavy only one thing should be remembered and that thing is social connectivity. 

If a problem arise in a society than it must connected with another problem and if we do want to solve it than first we have to solve that particular issue for which the final result we get as a problem.

Please let me know you opinion on the issue.
