Aamir Khan

Daughters are precious

What is it about boys… or men… or males… that fascinates us so much… because of which we are, as a society, collectively moving towards eradicating the girl child in the womb?!!! Aamir Khan writes.

Please listen to them

If children report sexual abuse, don't hide the incident. Your children and their well-being must be your main concern, everything else is secondary. Aamir Khan writes.

It's really your life

Instead of spending time, money and emotions solely on a wedding day, we must focus on the more important aspects of marriage. Marriage is an important part of life. It's a partnership you form; it's a companion you choose. Aamir Khan writes.

A worthy dream

To provide healthcare to both rich and poor, we need more public medical colleges and increased access to generic medicines. Aamir Khan writes.

What nature intended

I must confess that when me and my team met to finalize the 13 topics for Satyamev Jayate, I was in the minority, or perhaps alone, in wanting to drop this topic of ‘intolerance towards love’. Aamir Khan writes.

One simple step to increase our GDP

Giving children with disabilities a shot at education by encouraging schools to be more inclusive will serve India well, writes Aamir Khan.

There seems to be a civil war out there

What is this thinking that make us men believe that we have a right to hit a woman? And what is this thinking that makes many women accept this beating for years on end? Once again, it’s the good old ‘Patriarchal’ thinking. Aamir Khan writes.

We are what we eat

We can test the freshness of a fruit by holding it, smelling it, giving it a soft squeeze, checking for bumps and spots and bruises, but how do we check the level of pesticides contained in it? Aamir Khan writes.

The destroyer of all that is… good

Fire gives us warmth, but it also burns us. We use it to our advantage, but never get too close to it. Our sense of survival and self-preservation kicks in the moment it gets too close to us. How come that doesn’t happen with alcohol?  Aamir Khan writes.

… towards a shared common good

There are a number of things that distinguish Gandhi from most of his fellow freedom fighters and the leaders of that time. One of them is the emancipation of people supposedly of the lower caste. Aamir Khan writes for HT.

Thirst in the land of malhaar

When man searches for signs of life in outer space, what does he look for? He looks for the existence of water. The presence of water on a planet indicates that it is capable of supporting life. We recognise that life means water, and water means life. Aamir Khan writes.

The Power of One

I believe in India. I believe in the people of India. I believe that each and every Indian loves his/her country. I believe that India is changing. I believe that India wants to change. Aamir Khan writes for HT.
