By means of Aadhaar cards, employers have been able to reduce the week-long process for the verification of potential employees down to less than 15 minutes, a move which saves valuable time and manpower which was earlier required to individually verify each employee. Aadhaar verification has also made the process paperless, as potential employees are not required to submit documents such as those for proof of residence.

US President Donald Trump’s promise to bring down the cost of prescription drugs and let other countries pay more for these medicines has possible implications for India.
At a White House meeting, Trump reportedly told members of his cabinet that the prices of prescription drugs in the US have gone through the roof. “If you look at the same drug by the same exact company made in the same exact box and sold some place else sometimes it’s a fraction of what we pay in this country,” Trump...

A woman is a miraculous creation of God. I say this not because I am a feminist neither I am I going to sing about the many things she has done for us in many different ways, playing many different roles.
I say this simply because a woman is the only gender that can nurture a life within her and then forever after she gives birth to her baby. I speak highly today of just one role -Mother.
It would bring many of us to tears talking of our mother, especially for people who live away from their mothers or for those who have lost their mothers. In two days we shall celebrate 'Mother's Day', but do we need a day? Or let's ask do we do our bit?
'Prega News' came up with a beautiful video that raises some very important issues. The video features a mother-to be employee and how her office makes her life more easier.
The pregnant lady comes back to find her stuff missing from her desk, she fears she has been laid-off from the company. Instead, she receives a well equipped cabin on the ground floor. An office with all the necessary items that a pregnant woman would require.
It is indeed a gesture that is very unexpected but is it that hard? Do are offices have cabins that are equipped according to the needs of a woman who is expecting a baby?
This mother's day let's decide that we will try and make a mother's life easier by contributing a little more by sharing some of her burden. Even if a woman is not our mother, she goes through the same ordeals.
Also, the notion that a woman who has children should only be made to feel special is wrong, this mother's day, let's understand that a woman who is carrying a life within her she deserves a lot more. The woman who works and contributes to a company deserves a special treatment.
A woman who is pregnant goes through so many mental pressures, her body is in pain and demands rest, still she gets up every day and works while caring for two people. This video is a beautiful initiative to make a lady feel comfortable.
