Hare Krsna Parag prabhuji,


THere are not defects of Kaliyuga, these are defects of human being in any yuga.

Solution to these defects is to place faith on authority and learn by shruti, the authorised scriptures. Take shelter of guru, sadhu and shastra.

There are not four defects of kali yuga. These are four defects of Human life in every yuga. 

In order to overcome them we need to give up our material body and attain our eternal spiritual form in the spiritual world. 

Dhruva Maharaja is a great example of how to go back Home back to godhead.

When Dhruva Mahārāja was attempting to get on the transcendental plane, he saw death personified approach him. Not caring for death, however, he took advantage of the opportunity to put his feet on the head of death, and thus he got up on the airplane, which was as big as a house. (SB 4.12.30)

Dhruva was seated in the transcendental airplane, which was just about to start, when he remembered his poor mother, Sunīti. He thought to himself, “How shall I go alone to the Vaikuṇṭha planet and leave behind my poor mother?” (SB 4.12.32)

The great associates of Vaikuṇṭhaloka, Nanda and Sunanda, could understand the mind of Dhruva Mahārāja, and thus they showed him that his mother, Sunīti, was going forward in another plane.(SB 4.12.33)

In this human form of our life we should be aiming to get out of cycle of birth and death rather than solving 4 defects.

SB 13.3.51

kaler doṣa-nidhe rājann
asti hy eko mahān guṇaḥ
kīrtanād eva kṛṣṇasya
mukta-saṅgaḥ paraṁ vrajet

My dear King, although Kali-yuga is an ocean of faults, there is still one good quality about this age: Simply by chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, one can become free from material bondage and be promoted to the transcendental kingdom.
