Why photos don’t match our faces?

Why photos don’t match our faces?

We all are living in the era of social media. Considering the pandemic situation and the stay at home notion becoming the new normal, internet remains as the sole option of interaction with people. We’re seeing the world through our screens and are being seen by our cameras. But have you ever felt like you looked better in your washroom mirror than what you look like in front of the camera?

If yes, you aren’t alone to have faced that. The internet is filled with such questions. Most obvious answer to this being, we’re all habituated looking at our faces in the mirror which is actually an inverted image. But cameras don’t invert our image. As we’re used to look at our inverted images hence we find the camera clicked images subconsciously different mostly in the worse way. But this is not the answer.

The real reason lies in camera itself. Cameras we generally use possess single lens while human beings have two eyes situated approximately two inches apart. And this causes image look different in mirrors and camera clicks.

An Experiment:

Michael Richman, Physics professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, made a video during his research to show how things look different when viewed through the human eyes than camera images. He performed a simple experiment.

A mug was placed against a background. Then a picture was clicked. This picture showed how conventional cameras take pictures.

To show how human eyes view images two pictures were clicked from right and left angles, cut from the mid and then merged together to form another image. The simple reason being that our brain views the world from merged images obtained from the left and right eyes in a similar manner.

When both the final images were kept side by side and observed, there occurred a major difference. In the second image background was more visible than the first one. Which implies that background is more persistent with human eyes than camera image. As the human brain perceives images by merging images from both right and left eyes which results in a phenomena known as depth perception. And this phenomena, specific to eyes, leads to the background being more visible or in other words, object appears smaller even when viewed from the same distance for the same set of object and background.

Conclusion being that camera image makes us look bulkier than reality.


We are controlled by our subconscious mind. When we look at ourselves in a mirror we often move our face and body without being aware about it, and this makes us look at our best profile most of the time. Which means we subconsciously keep looking at the best side of our profile. But this doesn’t work for pictures. If our best profile isn’t in front of the camera then the picture is not likely to be the desired one.

Another fact is that the front camera of most mobiles consists of a wide angle lens and this leads to distortion. And due to this selfies usually don’t match our face in the mirror.

INDIAN POPULATION AND THE TABOO OF ILLITERACY

The Indian economy is a developing economy, thus, the educated as well as educating population is the future of the nation. However, the future of the nation stays in blue when the citizens are not provided with the facility to educate themselves. The different nations are building themselves under the supervision and employment of the educated and skilled workforce. Whereas, India is facing a serious problem of illiteracy amongst its citizens. The large population of the country doesn’t posses enough knowledge about certain subjects, at times, people are just enjoying incomplete knowledge on something in particular.

A report by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) highlights that India has highest population of illiterate adults, i.e., 287 million. It shows that the number is huge and around 37% of the world’s illiterate people are India. The literacy rate in India is calculated with regards to the people aged between 15-24 years. The literacy level of any nation is a determinant of its socio-economic status, and the level of literacy in India has been increasing at a very slow pace. The 2011 census depicts that the literacy growth in the decade 2001-2011 has been as low as 9.2%. Thus, the problem of illiteracy continues to prevail in the country at a very large level.

Illiteracy is basically defined as the inability to read or write, that means the individual has lack of knowledge in a particular subject. It is a wider concept and includes the individual ability to adapt to the subject and visualizes the content matter. However, the extent of illiteracy in India is different, the people residing in the villages or rural areas have remained familiar to there native language and are ignorant towards the other languages or subjects. These people are mostly the adults, including women who are now unwilling to learn something new due to lack of time or other priority work to do. The women community is largely affected by the illiteracy around the nations, as the aggregate percentage of girls enrolling in schools is just 47.78%. Overall, 60 lakhs children in India are still not able to prevail the facilities of education. The state of Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh are at the bottom in the terms of Dalit Literacy level.

Literacy is not just the ability to read or write, but also includes the individual’s capacity to comprehend a piece of information and further communicate it with others effectively. Literacy is a significant element to enhance the individual social and personal standards, as it is the tool to help them to represent themselves among the people and share a common surrounding with the people around us. It severs as the foundation of the basic education for all the individuals in the nation. Thus, provision of basic education to all the citizens of the nation becomes a necessity. The Constitution of India recognizes this need and had laid down certain provisions and laws to ensure proper and impartial availability of educational rights to all the citizens.

  • The Article 30 of the Indian Constitution gives right to the minorities to establish their own educational as well as administrative institutions. Also, they have been given the fundamental right to protect their culture and teachings.
  • The Directive Principles of State policy also instructs the state to ensure free education to all the citizens under the sections 41, 45 and 46.
  •  Article 21 (A) was also amended to include the provision of free and compulsory education to all the children between the age group of 6-14 years, as a fundamental right.
  • The weaker section of the nation; comprising socially, economically, and educationally backward sections belonging to the Scheduled castes and scheduled tribes are also provided educational rights through the Article 15, 17 and 46 of the Indian Constitution.

Along with these constitutional or legal provisions, there are other schemes and programs that are initiated with the aim and objective to promoting educational awareness among all the citizens in the nation.

  • The Mid-day meal scheme has been launched by the government in 1995 with the aim to improve the enrolment and attendance rate of the students. The poor people will be willing to enroll their children to the government schools which provide free food to the students.
  • There are regular updates on the scholarship programs for the students in order to provide fee concession as well as other necessary items. Also, the aim is that a potential and deserving student should not be deprived of the education due to lack of resources.
  • Samagra Shiksha Programme was launched by the government with the broader goal of improving school effectiveness. This will be measured in terms of equal opportunities for schooling and equitable learning outcomes.
  • Awareness campaigns were launched in rural areas to create awareness among people about the importance of education. They were encouraged to attend or send their children to schools.

It can be observed that continuously efforts have been made by the government to improve the condition of the educational sector and promote the level of literacy in the country. However, the efforts cannot bear results without the support and coordination of the citizens of the country. At the individual level, the people are responsible to make efforts to educate themselves, their children and other encourage other acquaintances as well.

  • The individuals must indulge themselves in some or other awareness campaign to learn and share the knowledge with their peers.
  • They should expose themselves the different kinds of reading material and adopt good reading habits.
  • There is a need to explore more and know your interests to involve in the same kind of areas.

Thus, it can be concluded that the problem of illiteracy is huge but requires coordination between the authorities and the citizens to improve the level of literacy of the nation.

ROLE OF MEDIA IN INDIAN DEMOCRACY

Media is considered as an important element of a free and independent society, as it is the mode of provision of all the necessary news and information to the general citizens of the country. Basically, media refers to the communication outlets or tools that are used to store and deliver the information or data. The above statement explains the basic role of the media, and further the components are communication industry, the news media, print media publishing, photography, cinematics, broadcasting, advertising etc. Thus, media is a vast field and has the responsibility of communicating each and every necessary information to the lowest most level of the hierarchical structure.

Downsizing and shutting down of Indian media: Worst phase until now

In India, the media is considered as the fourth pillar of democracy, as it supplies all the political news to the citizens and help the voters to make a fair and reasonable decision. Also, they identify the problems in the society and serve as a medium for deliberation. Media also work as a representative of the group to raise voice for their well-being and keep a check upon the different activities in the country to analysis the quality of the services being provided to the citizens. Therefore, it can be said that the media plays an important role in the free and fair play of the government and other authorities and ensure the equal application of the principles of a democratic nation in the country like India.

The media is regarded as an important part of the Indian Democracy because, it is an ideal illustration to strengthen the concept/Right of freedom to speech and expression. The media helps the citizen to be an active participant in the political, economic as well as social happenings of the nation, through the dissemination of the necessary information to them on timely bases. As stated in the above paragraph, the media acts as a representative of the citizens and stand for their needs and demands in front of the government. In the similar manner, the media informs the government about the current requirements of the citizens and help them to design their public welfare policies accordingly. Media has a huge contribution in bringing up the reforms in the nation, through raising voice against the unjustifiable and illegal actions of certain individuals, whether the political leaders or a normal citizen. The media helps in exposing the corrupt individuals in public and private agencies and allow the deserving hard working individuals to come forward and avail the opportunities. The media is the voice of the marginalized people of the nation, they empower the poor and vulnerable people by providing them with a platform through which they can approach to the specific authority.

However, the deficiencies and shortcomings of the media industry cannot be overlooked; the Indian Media is considered to be an important part of the democratic system, whereas, it is characterized by corruption. The World Press Freedom Index 2020 puts India at 142nd rank with respect to the freedom and fairness of the media, this highlights that Indian Media still has to go on a long track to achieve complete transparency. The corruptive and biased actions of the Media hamper the smooth functioning of the democracy. The media industry in India is easily controlled by the political leaders, the authoritative heads, cooperates, etc., this leads to spread of fake news and misleads the viewers/readers. Media accountability has been reducing and there is no coverage of any issues in a holistic or comprehensive manner, the weightage is given to only a favorable part of the news and no complete knowledge is provided to the citizens.

Fake News and Indian Media

The Indian Media has been facing certain issues that is causing corruption and biasedness in the country. On of the problem is Paid News, the Press Council refer it as any news or analysis that appears in the newspaper or media in return of the price or consideration paid for the printing of the same. In the last few decades, the cooperates, political leaders and other influencing personalities have started viewing news and media as an advertising agency, they have been making continuous attempts to get their new printed through payment of some nominal amount. Also, due to increasing number of news channels and outlets, some of them are falling prey to these corruptive activities, this is affecting the reality and truthfulness of the news and also misleading the innocent citizens. Other than this, the media industry is also prone to other issues like Fake News, Sensationalisation of news, declining press freedom, etc.

Therefore, it is the need of the hour to make policies and enforce laws to regulating and diagnoses the working of the media industry to help ensure necessary development and application of the principle of free democratic society. The media needs to perform their duties and responsibilities with honesty and commitment to gain and maintain the confidence of the citizens on them. The corrupt and biased media will eliminate the necessary moral principles and become problematic for the society.

How to prioritize your day?

When we wake up we have 86,400 seconds in our hand to create magic in our life. But, to do that we should prioritize the task scheduled for that day. So, that our day will be productive and at the end of the day, we will get happy seeing the end result. 

Prioritize our day is an important task. You can do it by installing an app on your phone so that it will remind you whenever the task is to be done, its deadline, and all. You can install the famous Microsoft to-do-list app which is an app founded by Microsoft. Install it and schedule your tasks. It has some amazing features and you can explore it only when you install it. 

Start by finding the urgent tasks to be done that day so that you won’t miss it out. While writing makes sure that the time and date are precise so that it won’t get missed. You can also set goals and when you set goals visualize your outcome in your mind it will give the much-needed boost to kick start your day. 

You can write it like this

1. Urgent and important

These are the tasks that needed to be done on that day itself as it is urgent and also needed to be submitted that day. So, that you won’t get scolding at the end of the day by your boss if you are a working professional.

2. Important, but not urgent

If the task is important and not urgent make sure you fix the deadline properly. So, it will remind you of the desired time for that task.

3. Neither important nor urgent

These tasks will clutter your important tasks and remove them as soon as possible. As it would be of no use keeping them will be an utter waste.

4. Urgent, but not important

If you are the manager of your office you can assign this task to some person in your office. So that the work will be completed by the person. since it is not important you don’t have to cross-check it much. Just remove that task from your phone and relax for the day. 

While prioritizing don’t make it too complicated by writing too many messages. It will demotivate you. All you need is some motivation to do the task so use catchy one-liners. It will boost your energy. After organizing check it once again and make sure they are correct and get started with your first task.

Don’t be too harsh and try to complete within that day. Your mental health is also important. Don’t assign yourself so much work and it will be hectic and the moment you go home and hit the pillow sleep will take place. Sometimes, sleep won’t come easily as you worked hard and the body got used to it so that the melatonin hormone will drop. It will lead you to a lack of sleep. And the next morning you will wake up with a headache and your body will become mundane.  

Things to do when you feel low

There will be times when we feel low. It can be a bad day, a day where you got the worst marks, a day where your dear ones scolded, or in worst-case scenarios, they left you. That time we feel like that is the end of our life. Our mind will constantly tell us this we are not capable of doing anything why are you living in this world. It will reflect many thoughts like this. But, we as human beings can control our minds. It is not an easy task to do but at least trying without doing nothings will always be better. 

The first main reason for this is being so hard on ourselves. We curse ourselves when we couldn’t achieve something. We feel bad about ourselves. Remember, self-love is more important. Don’t curse yourself just because you failed in one thing. There may be many things that you are capable of doing. You just have to figure the right ones. It will come and knock one day on your door.

You have to try to move on. Many people will ask you to move on like it’s an easy task or something. But it is very hard to do so. You can do it step by step by indulging yourselves in some activities that you like. But if it remains you of your past please don’t do that. As it will worsen your situation. 

Think about people you love and your family. They are the biggest support and strength. There are people in our life who will claim to be our best friends or some other things but remember it will be temporary. You know what some people in our life will come and teach us this important thing that is “don’t be so affectionate towards a person”. In the end, all you will get is hurt. They came to your life to prove that life is temporary and you can’t believe people all the time. Try maintaining good relationships with people who genuinely like you and love spending time with you. 

This is the time you should healthy. Your body will be so weak you have to intake a good amount of food to keep your mind calm so that it will get the most needed energy to fight things. Read some inspiring quotes or an autobiography of famous persons. It will motivate you. When somebody shares the struggles they face in their life and you can relate to them then it will give a new perspective to your life. All you need is someone to tell you that you are not the only one who faces this situation, others also did.

Do what you like at that time. Eat ice cream if you like without worrying about the calories. Spend time with your pet. Take a walk in your garden or terrace. Spens some alone time for yourself and not let anyone to disturb you. Put your phone on silent mode and switch off your mobile media so that you will be away from social media and unwanted things. 

Remember that you are blessed with good health and organs. Be grateful for that. Also, help someone who is broken at that time. It will give relief to your mind and heart.

Income inequality in India

Shared Moral Blindness - Ted's Thoughts

How has the unpriviliged community in India fared within the last few decades? Has their scenario changed?

There square measure actually several changes that one might observe within the last twenty years. Access to food grains from the general public distribution system at a supported rate has improved; several villages are electrified; a lot of youngsters are attending primary colleges in villages and concrete slums; bathrooms are made in many villages; several currently use mobile phones.

But has there been any important modification within the financial gain of little and marginal farmers among Adivasis and Dalits?

This is in all probability a a lot of complicated question to answer. after we started our journey as development practitioners twenty years past, we have a tendency to had to conduct a village study.

The average financial gain of Adivasi households in an exceedingly village of Bihar’s Lohardaga district (now Jharkhand) was around Rs 15,000 in 1996. This matched with the findings of comparable such studies in different areas of the Central Indian Plateau (CIP) conducted by our peers throughout a similar time.

Similar studies by development practitioners show that across the CIP, the common financial gain of little associated marginal households in an Adivasi space was Rs 55,000-60,000 in 2020 — a rise of just about fourfold from 1996.

The financial gain of those individuals failed to modification abundant within the last twenty years, if we have a tendency to take under consideration the rate. The Net present value (NPV) of Rs 15,000 in 1996 was around Rs 67,000 within the year 2019.

Rising inequality

The scenario changing at the national level?

India’s per capita gross domestic product (GDP) multiplied 5 times between 2000 and 2019; to $2014 in 2019 from $443 in 2000.

This doesn’t mean that financial gain of the complete population has multiplied. The highest one per cent in India attained twenty one per cent of total country’s financial gain in 2019. This was eleven per cent in 1990.

The top ten per cent attained fifty six per cent of the country’s total financial gain in 2019; rock bottom ten per cent attained solely 3.5 per cent.

Wealth distribution tells an analogous story. The richest ten per cent Indians closely-held 80.7 per cent of wealth in 2019.

The Gini (inequality in financial gain distribution) constant points to associate increasing difference in Republic of India. The constant in 2014 was 34.4 per cent (100 per cent indicates full difference and zero per cent full equality).

The constant multiplied to 35.7 per cent in 2011 and to 47.9 per cent in 2018. India is just second to Russia within the world in terms of difference.

Agricultural work is one of the most common way to sustenance in villages. A complete of 26.3 crores households are concerned in farming activities in India, per the most recent census knowledge for 2011.

Of this, only 11.9 crore folks are land-owning farmers; 14.4 large integer are landless staff and peasants. A minimum of 86.2 per cent of all farmers in India own simply 47.3 per cent of the crop area, per the agriculture census knowledge 2015-16.

During 2010-11 and 2015-16, the proportion of tiny and marginal farmers grew to 86.2 per cent from 84.9 per cent, whereas the overall range of operational holdings grew to 146 million from 138 million.

There are 126 million tiny and marginal farmers, that points to fragmentation of lands which a lot of medium farmers have become tiny and marginal farmers. These farmers along in hand concerning 74.4 million hectares of land — or a mean holding size of simply 0.6 hectares every.

Between 2010-11 and 2015-16, the amount of tiny and marginal farmers rose by concerning nine million, per agriculture census 2015-16.

Per capita land holding of rock bottom sixty seven per cent marginal farmers reduced to 0.38 hectares from 0.4 hectares within the last 20 years. The world isn’t enough for farmers to grow food for even six months.

Nearly 17 per cent smallholders have a mean land holding of 0.4 angular distance — a discount of 1.42 angular distance in 2000. The typical holding of scheduled tribe marginal farmers is 0.48 ha; for scheduled Caste, it’s solely 0.37 ha.

The country has another 3.76 crore households of landless laborer within the same time.

Pandemic made it worse

French economic expert Thomas Piketty, in his book Capital in the 21st Century, came up with a straightforward plan to elucidate difference in terms of wealth distribution takes place in associate degree economy.

He believes, once the come back on investments (r) is over the speed of economic process (g) of the country, a lot of wealth gets accumulated within the hands of a couple of (who own the suggests that of production) as compared to the busy category.

Piketty showed that the typical rate of come back on investment was 5 per cent throughout history. He finished that any rate below five per cent can cause a lot of difference as a lot of wealth are going to be generated for a couple of investors as compared to people who don’t own any suggests that of production.

Whether Piketty’s findings, largely supported Europe and also the u. s., are applicable for countries like India where economic history and pathways are totally different, is debatable.

However, a thirty five per cent increase within the web value of the billionaires in India throughout the novel coronavirus malady (COVID-19) pandemic, once India’s growth was negative ten per cent, could force US to assume if Piketty was right.

The approach ahead

India’s economic process has caught up considerably. This can be the time once states ought to invest: cash must move into the hands of the marginalized.

States earn cash through taxation. Increasing tax on the rich folks is that the obvious resolution. Piketty additionally projected the same live to cut back difference. The next rate of tax for billionaires are often the simplest way to get a lot of revenue for the state.

In any case, withdrawal of Central Public Sector Undertakings associate and public sector banks can’t be a permanent resolution in an economy where difference is rising sharply.

There is a desire to trace what’s happening within the economic condition pockets of India. A periodic study could facilitate policy manufacturers to believe the problem a lot of seriously and are available up with higher ideas to cut back inequalities.

Good and Bad effects of competition in Life

Winner Winner Confidence booster!

Get set go!! What do you make of that? If you think its competition, you are absolutely right! In Today’s fast moving life,this phrase makes sense most of the time in every field. Yes, competition,the act of trying tobwin or gain something by defeating others, is the policy we bear in mind in completing any task how much ever minute it may be.

Here, ego also plays a major part as losing means one is inferior to the other. This might help in increasing confidence level. If its a challenge, why not gain the pleasure by surmounting it?

Even for a trifle task, one thinks that he must be the first one to finish it, thereby forcing each one to give their level best into it, yielding a better result altogether. This trait can be observed in children too. They try to compete in any task given to them and feel very good about themselves once they finish it. This simple instance shows the infuence of competition.

Now-a-days, children are very witty, which increases the level of competition.With numerous opportunities and resources come greater competition. This can be observed in various competitive exams. The cut off marks are such that, by a point difference people lose.This induces more stress in people which might be positive or negative, depending on each individual and circumtances.

Competition provides the opportunity to select the best among the bests. It is the best way to analyze ourselves and keep a track of where we stand among our peers. It also gives us chance to improve ourselves and achieve better when the next opportunity knocks our doors.

The monthly or annual exams students face is a trailor to the future competitions we might encounter. Many children as well as adults bear the opinion that exams are unnecessary and irrelevant. On the contrary, without a definite reason, it is highly unlikely that people learn what is to be learnt.

The importance of competition is such that we must always engage in improving ourselves to be on par with the bustling world. Only when we compare and compete with people, our areas of strength and weakness is revealed to us. This is help in finding direction to move forward in life.

Coming to the disadvantages, it depends on one’s mentality and view point. If one is pessimistic, the idea of competition might be discouraging to him. Whereas, if he is optimistic and ready to take on challenges, it might actually help in pushing oneself to improvise on all levels. The reality stands that competition is everywhere. One can either moan about or make the best out of it.

In conclusion, one musy always try to have healty competition in mind. Especially in this competitive world, competition is a must and the one conpeting with full determination will be the winner of the competition called life.

Battling Loneliness

Loneliness, a dangerous pandemic which is spreading faster than coronavirus. This I would say, is a disease that cannot be cured by medicine but is the consequence of inattentiveness from the side of friends and family. Introverts are often confused with loners because both are detached from the outside. But introverts like it being that way because they prefer to spend time with themselves and they have their own little world to think about and live in it. But people become loners due to less interaction with outside world and become mentally low and go into a shell. It takes some special efforts to bring them out of that shell. That efforts needs to start from family because not all of them can understand one’s difficulties and problems. Only a close family member often checks on you and notes even the slightest changes in your behaviour. They must feel special so that they come back again. But sadly, the families are busy with their own work that not only at times they forget to notice others but also forget to look upon themselves. At that time, friends come to the rescue. Friends are nothing but an extended family though they don’t stay with you all the time. But still friends can turn out to be more comfortable to be with, to share problems and find solutions. A friend can sniff out the difference in you sometimes even before your family. But for those without much close friends, it is even more a difficult task to come out of loneliness. Loneliness can make a person mentally unstable leading to anxiety and depression. It is mainly due to the fact that they get neglected or unnoticed for some reason.

Here are a few tips for those loners who want bring back their self and stop waiting for others to show some love:

  • Fitness: If you are a fitness freak, you might very well be able to battle loneliness because your body is your friend and you get to concentrate on yourself instead of expecting it from others.
  • Reconnecting with others: Don’t expect others to notice. When you feel you need attention, you can always reconnect with your close ones just by a phone call.
  • Be active online: Being active on social media can become an addiction, but still is a lot way helpful for finding new friends and relationships.

If you find it boring and are not happy with it then don’t push yourself to it. You just tried a new thing and it didn’t work out. So, don’t get disheartened if it didn’t come in your favor. 

On the other hand, don’t wait for the result to be too perfect. If you like what you are doing then keep doing it. Some people will discourage you from your newly found habit. They are not experts to give advice or judge you. Criticism will make you more strong and prove to them what you are doing is worth it.

This is personally my favorite one and I will share the story of how it started

Book reading is the most common hobby. But, it will not be an easy task. when a friend suggests you read a book you don’t give a damn. But, at least try to understand why he is so desperate and asking you to read a book. After all, you trust your friend. So, try to put some inputs and ask him questions that pop up in your mind.

The first thing that will come to your mind will be why should I read a book? Ask him what excites him and ask him to give a gist or about the story plotline. It will make you curious to know the exact story. So you will pick the book and read it. Try to read it slowly don’t read it in a go. Give yourself some breaks so that your eyes won’t strain much. Once you finish a book note the name of the book somewhere. Each time you do this it will give you the much-needed energy to read other books.

mahatma gandhi’s great-granddaughter imprisoned

Mahatma Gandhi’s great granddaughter, Ashish Lata Ramgobin, 56, has been sentenced to seven years in jail by a South African court in connection with a six million (Rs 32.2 billion) rand fraud and forgery case. Ashish Lata Ramgobin was accused of fraud after businessman S.R.Maharaj paid rand 6.2 million to her for clearing imports and tariffs on non-existent consignments from India. S.R.Maharaj was promised a share of promised, PTI reported. The daughter of renowned rights activist Ella Gandhi and the late Mewa Ramgobin, Lata Ramgobin, was also denied appeal by the Durban Specialized Commercial Crimes Court, convicted. During the trial, Brigadier General Hanwani Murauji of the National Public Prosecutor’s Office (NPA) provided Lata Ramgobin with forged invoices and documents to convince investors that three linen containers were shipped from India. At that time, Lata Ramgobin was released on the bail of 50,000 rand.

Lata Ramgobin met with S.R.Maharaj, Director of the New Africa Alliance Footwear Distributor in August 2015. Mahatma Gandhi’s great granddaughter told Maharaj that he had imported three containers of linen for the South African hospital group NetCare. NPA spokesman Natasha Kara said,” Lata Ramgobin is facing financial difficulties in paying import costs and tariffs and needs money to get goods through the port.” She told Maharaj that she needed 6.2 million rand. To convince him, she showed her a purchase order for the item she claimed. Later that month, she sent him what appeared to be an internet care invoice and the invoice to prove that the item was delivered and payment was imminent. in addition, she also sent him a conformation that the payment was made from NetCare’s bank account. Maharaj signed the contract with Ramgobin for her family qualifications and internet care documents.

He then discovered that the document had been forged and filed a criminal complaint. Ramgobin is the founder and secretary general of the Participatory Development Initiative of the NGO International Center for Nonviolence, describing herself as an,” activist focused on the environment, society and political interest.” Many other descendants of Mahatma Gandhi are human rights activist, including Lata Ramgobin’s cousin Kirti Menon, the late Satish Duperia, and Uma Duperia Mesley. In particular, Ramgobin’s mother, Ella Gandhi, has been internationally recognized for her efforts, including receiving national honors in both India and South Africa.

Mahatma Gandhi’s great granddaughter imprisoned for 7 years in South Africa for Rs 3.2 billion fraud.

Women Empowerment

What is Women’s Empowerment?

It is the process of empowering women and understanding their points of view. It is simply accepting that women are capable of anything and they have the potential to decide and debate on an issue. Women’s literacy rates are nowadays started increasing. Earlier women were not sent to studies and got married at a young age. Nowadays the view is changing. They are getting the right education and many organization, government schemes are there for women. Even banks are supporting women and giving loans for their further education in studies. 

Amazon provides a big help to achieve women and they are doing their online business through this platform. I would like to share a story which I read a few years back. One woman got married at a young age but she had dreams to study further but due to her family condition she accepted her fate and got married. But her luck came in the form of her husband. He let her pursue her dreams and helped her in joining college. She completed her studies and later started her online business on handbags. Her handbags grew very fast and now she is earning several lakhs in a month. Education, boldness, audacity are important for women. Our society should change its view on educating a girl child and let them study further without getting married.

Not only this apps like Meesho are helping many women to start an online business without any investment. There are lots of success stories on their website. Many women are earning more than 25,000 per month at the comfort of their homes by taking care of their families. We should change this view. Women should only support and not work. This thing should be changed. Men and their families should also help women in succeeding in their life and give them equal rights. 

We can do some things from our side as well. We can sponsor a girl child’s education. This small step will further turn into a giant leap. We should create awareness and campaigns on why women’s empowerment is important. Women’s decisions will never fail. They have a higher capacity than men and can succeed well in their life.

Nowadays many women are leaving their high-paying jobs and joining the army. We should definitely salute these people. They are the real heroes of our life. They should be given equal rights. We should encourage girls who are willing to join the army instead of not letting them pursue their dreams. 

We should not simply celebrate women’s day by sharing women’s day quotes on WhatsApp group. But also take some steps in making them come true. We should give 50% allotment to women on every job that is provided for men. 

Nowadays many women are delivering food, driving auto. They are so brave and taking up this job by knowing its risks. Women are also driving metro trains and many have become successful pilots.

Take a look at Forbes magazine to know the top 10 women entrepreneurs and their success stories. It will give you the much-needed motivation. Nobody could’ve started their business with a good amount of money. They too could’ve suffered in their initial days and that made them achieve their goals. 

World ocean day

Oceans take up over 70 per cent of Earth’s surface and over 90 per cent of our planet’s habitable surface. Roughly 97 per cent of the water found in this globe is in the oceans. The aquamarine world also harbours countless species of fish and plants. The latter produces most of the oxygen on this planet. Oceans provides us with food and livelihood. Yet we, as a species, have significantly compromised this biodiverse domain for our greed.

World Oceans Day is observed annually on June 8 to make people aware of the negative impact of human activities such as garbage disposal, sewage, oil leaks from ships and drilling station accidents. Below, we take a look at the day’s history, this year’s theme and its significance.

History:

On June 8, 1992, at the Earth Summit of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), the Oceans Institute of Canada proposed the idea of the observance of an international ocean’s day. It took 16 more years for this concept to bear fruit. In 2008, the United Nations General Assembly, led by Canada, passed the resolution 63/111, through which they declared that June 8 would be observed every year as World Ocean’s Day. The inaugural observance happened a year later and had the theme “Our Ocean, Our Responsibility.”

SCIENCE: IN SERVICE OF MAN

“The Consistent efforts and the struggle for the expansion of everything in Life, be It: systematic Knowledge, nature, innovations, materials created a need for describing and Understanding the nature”. This need led to the birth of what is known today as “SCIENCE”. WE LIVE IN THE AGE OF SCIENCE. Science is a great BLESSING to mankind. Nothing better has happened in the history of man than the advent of SCIENCE in human life, and today, Science has become an important part of our lives. SCIENCE is a systematic and logical study towards how the UNIVERSE works. Science is a dynamic subject. Science can also be defined as the systematic study of the nature and behaviour of the material and physical universe, based on OBSERVATIONS, EXPERIMENT, and MEASUREMENTS and the formulation of laws to describe these facts, in general terms.

The world into which SCIENCE came, was a world of IGNORANCE, SUFFERING and HARDSHIP. Science has come to relieve us from sufferings, to remove our ignorance, and to lighter our toil. SCIENCE, has helped Man to lead a better life, than ever before! In all walks of life, man has made wonderful progress. You can see the use of SCIENCE in each and every aspect of our life. SCIENCE is an essential element in our life. Basic knowledge of SCIENCE is mandatory for everyone as it makes life easier and open our mind in many ways. Let’s see how!

HOW SCIENCE IS HELPFUL FOR US?
“HOW IT HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN RELIEVING US FROM THE SUFFERINGS”?

Well, “SCIENCE IS A FAITHFUL SERVANT OF MAN”. It serves us in all walks of our life. It is our servant in the home, in the field, and in the factory. There are many events in our life, which makes us realize the PRESENCE OF SCIENCE. The FABRIC we wear, the brush and paste we use, COOKING, BOILING OF WATER, ELECTRICITY, TRANSPORT, CELL PHONES, etc., Everything is the consequence of advancement of SCIENCE. Science is involved in everything and Life is UNIMAGINABLE without it. SCIENCE has transformed our daily life. Gone are the days when only rich men could afford LUXURIES. Science has made them Cheap and has brought them within the reach of everybody. Books, music, and all other forms of entertainment has brought to our door, e.g, Radio, Television, and Cinema.

SCIENCE is our most faithful MEDICAL ATTENDANT. It shows every care for our health. Because of SCIENCE, we are cured of many deadly diseases. It has given us the power to reduce epidemics. Science has helped in reducing the death rate and has also enhanced the living age of humans.

SCIENCE HAS REDUCED DISTANCE. It has given us very swift means of COMMUNICATION, TRANSPORT, STEAM ENGINE, TELEPHONES, TELEGRAPH, LAPTOPS, AND, COMPUTERS. Science has annihilated TIME AND SPACE. Man can travel anywhere now. It has made it possible to send messages or talk to someone in any part of the world, in the twinkling of an eye. The work of MONTHS and YEARS can be done in HOURS.

SCIENCE is the greatest blessing to the Housewives. A thousand devices have been placed at her disposal to lighten the toil. Then there are so many Electricity-run kitchen appliances in which cooking is a pleasure. Science has provided us with COMPUTERS and MACHINES, which have greatly increased our efficiency. We are better connected to people today and INFORMATION is only a click of the mouse away.

Hence, SCIENCE has made our everyday lives very comfortable. It is an essential element in our daily life. The advancement in SCIENCE have brought about many changes in our lives. The CIVILIZATIONS have progressed LEAPS and BOUNDS. It has entered our life so powerfully that we have even started thinking in a scientific way. AND,

“WE WANT TO KNOW HOW AND WHY OF EVERYTHING”.

Equality or Vote Bank?

To mend the follows of historic injustice, reservation system became part of post-independent India. The fight for reservation that started way back in colonial India is still going on in new forms. Many states have implemented or are mulling over the idea of reservation in private companies for the locals of the area. Many communities are demanding reservation. Earlier Patel community led demonstrations for reservation and now Maratha community from Maharashtra are following the same footsteps. Supreme Court unanimously paused the verdict on the validity of socially and educationally backward classes of citizens (SPBC) act, 2018. Classification of Marathas as socially and educationally backward class was deemed unreasonable because of the political dominance as well as financial well being. Indra Swahney case, 1992 was reiterated.

Historical overview of reservation
Caste based reservation was the brainchild of William hunter and Jyotirao Phule in 1882. It was introduced for the first time in Government of India act of 1909 in the form of communal award. It was part of the divisive policy of Britain. It made provision for a separate electorate for muslims which was extended to other religions and communities in 1919. Poona pact of 1932 gave reservation to certain sections of the society under the Hindu electorate.
In post independent India, originally constitution provided reservation in legislatures for a period of 10 years until 1960 to the scheduled cost and the scheduled tribes (Article 334 constitution of India). It was extended and presently it remains functional.
In 1990 mandal Commission was instituted. Based on its recommendation other backward communities were given reservation. The Mandal Commission reserved 27% in government jobs for OBCs. Indra Swahney case of 1992 upheld the 27% quota for backward classes and established that reservation should not exceed 50% of India’s population. The concept of creamy layer was also introduced. The latest reservation policy change place in 2019 through 103rd amendment act which reserved 10% government jobs an education institutions for economically backward in the unreserved category.

Constitutional status of reservation in India
Article 14 of constitution forms the basis for By legitimising the concept of equality as Equality before law and equal protection of law.
Article 15– reservation in educational institutions
Article 16– reservation in jobs
Article 330 and 332 -Reserves seat for SCs and STs in parliament and in state legislatures respectively
Article 243 and 233– Reserves seat for SCs and STs in panchayats and in municipalities respectively
-Special provisions for some states mentioned in Article 371

New demands
The new demands for quota put forward by many communities or the reservation for locals in private jobs by state governments like Haryana will have to stand the scrutiny of the judiciary. The experts are of the opinion that reservation is usually a trade off between social equality and merit. In most cases the quota policy is justifiable but its malafide use for vote bank politics is a cause of concern as it threatens India’s efficiency. The government must, at any cost, try to balance the two or else, the entire system of governance will bear the brunt. Now states have started using reservation for better opportunities for the people of the state. If things go south, this can discourage companies from making investment in such states. Fine tuning of the policy with larger goal of nation building should be the bedrock of any policy.

China’s ‘One China policy’

Since international media is putting on a lot of importance to subjects like the QUAD alliance and the New cold war, Taiwan is also attaining importance. Some analysts also suggest countries should enhance diplomatic relations with Taiwan to counter Chinese regional dominance. India following ‘one china policy’ does not recognise Taiwan as a sovereign nation.  The USA a major supporter of Taiwan also does not recognise Taiwan as a sovereign nation. Even China is so aggressive about the Taiwan issue that in May 2021 Chinese state media Global Times threatened Australia with missile strikes regarding Australia’s interference in the Taiwan issue. On several occasions, China has warned India to stay clear of the Taiwan issue.

Taiwan is a tiny island located southeast of China. The government of Taiwan call the island a “republic of China” it also alleged the communist party of China for the forceful occupation of China mainland. Until 1927, the government of China was run jointly by the Chinese nationalist party and the Chinese communist party. But after a split, the Chinese nationalist party (KMT) expelled the communist party and oppressed the communist party leaders. After the end of the civil war in 1949, the communist party emerged victoriously and the KMT party was expelled to Taiwan island where they established their government at the island. Because of the US military support communist couldn’t annex Taiwan ( Republic of China). Since then the govt of the ‘Republic of China’ has been ruling the island from the capital Taipei and mainland China is claimed by both Taiwan led china as well as communist China. Until 1971 Taiwan led china was the official representative of China at the united nations, but the “UNGA resolution 2758” transferred this right to communist china because of improving relation of Beijing with the rest of the world. The USA also got inclined towards China when in 1969 china-USSR war broke out and the US got to see a viable partner to counter the soviet union. 

In 1979, the US recognised Beijing based “the people’s republic of China” (PRC) and withdrew recognition of Taiwan. the US wanted both countries to get recognition as separate countries with different identities. But neither of the two countries were ready to accept this. The increasing influence of communist china has almost isolated Taiwan and currently, only 23 small countries from the Pacific, Africa, and Latin America remember diplomatic relations with Taiwan. Also today the USA is the biggest partner of Taiwan, this support of the US was a strategic decision of the USA to strengthen its bargaining power against China. 

 

India-Taiwan Relations

India officially recognised communist china right after the civil war in China in 1950. India became the second state after Myanmar to do so. This decision was on faith that Beijing can become India’s partner. This policy was based on a dictum that PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee used in his speeches, “you can change friends not neighbours”. This froze India-Taiwan relations during the whole cold war. But after the 1962 sino-India war, India lost initial hopes of good relations with its largest neighbour and became sceptical towards china. After the collapse of the soviet union in 1991, India adopted the ‘look east policy’ seeking improved relations with east Asian countries. This policy gave a diplomatic push to India-Taiwan relations and in 1995 established complementary representative offices, It’s an informal diplomatic relation with Taiwan maintained by the India-Taipei association (in Taipei ) and the ‘Taipei Economic and cultural centre’ (in India). In 2002 India and Taiwan signed a ‘bilateral investment agreement’ and started direct air connectivity in 2003. The then defence minister, George Fernandez also visited Taiwan in 2007. In 2010, reciprocating China’s adverse attitude towards Kashmir, India asked China to acknowledge the” one India policy” after this the informal visits between India and Taiwan became formal. In 2010 Taiwan also hosted then Indian president APJ Abdul kalam in their country. The “southbound policy (2016)” Taiwan emphasised good relations with ASEAN and South Asian countries. After Galwan crisis, India’s relation with Taiwan improved considerably and India appointed Gourangalal Das as envoy in Taipei.

Strategic importance of Taiwan

The geographical location of Taiwan is the most important aspect of geopolitics around it. This can be proved very important for an alliance such as QUAD in near future. ‘Sana Hashmi’, a researcher in the institute of international relations of Taipei recommends stronger relations of India and Taiwan and also highlights its importance in India’s indo-pacific strategy. Donald Trump reinforced his security commitments by increasing the frequency of naval ships in the Taiwan Strait. The second factor of Taiwan’s strategic importance is the sensitivity of the Taiwan issue for china. China’s response is always aggressive when any country tries to indulge in the Taiwan issue. As against india who always followed one china policy, china did not honour one india policy on Kashmir and always supported Pakistan and in the same way, india can make use of Taiwan.

Economic ties between India and Taiwan

According to ‘The Diplomat’ economic dimension is the most important aspect of india-Taiwan relations. During the 2002-2014 period, Taiwan invested 66 million dollars in india but in 2015 the total investment increased rapidly. Taiwanese company Foxconn has invested 5 billion dollars in India. The india-Taiwan bilateral trade was nearly 6 billion dollars in 2016. Taiwan has also been playing significant roles in India’s semiconductors, electronics, and communication industries. Taiwan can also be a good option for countries such as the USA, Japan and South Korea for diversifying crucial supply chains networks and for reducing dependence on China. Despite its tiny size, the economy of Taiwan is 600 billion dollars which is double of Pakistan’s economy. Indian parliamentary standing committee on india-china relations in its report in 2018 has also advocated for stronger Indian-Taiwan bilateral ties.

Now the question arises should India recognise the sovereignty of Taiwan? Seeing the current aggressive behaviour of China on the Taiwan issue, Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan of ORF opines that India perhaps will take more time to recognise Taiwan as an independent country.

Sustainable Home: Economical and Environmental Living

“Sustainable development is the pathway to the future we want for all. It offers a framework to generate economic growth, achieve social justice, exercise environmental stewardship and strengthen governance.” – Ban Ki-moon

Climate change is real. And the need of the hour is to conserve our renewable resources and switch to sustainable development to protect our environment. Green-building practices help us reduce our dependency on non-renewable resources and limited environmental pollution.

One of such green-building practices is sustainable housing or sustainable homes. Sustainable housing enables efficient use of resources and energy which helps in causing minimum impacts on the environment. Energy efficiency is one of the key features of this green-building practice. Some of the features of a sustainable house are: solar panels, foam insulation, low-emissivity windows, sealed attic spaces, advanced framing techniques, and energy-efficient heat pumps, etc. are some features which make a house sustainable.

 

What is a sustainable home?

A home that is energy efficient and is economical to run is called a sustainable home. It is build using raw- material which doesn’t harm the environment. This goes for the waste material, which is generated in the process of building such a house too. 

The choice of material is very important. The materials should be durable so that the cost of replacing or renovating can be avoided. It should include sustainably sourced timber, low volatile organic compounds finishes, and other material which can be recycled. Thermal mass can also be one of the considerations for materials because of their ability to absorb and release heat.

 

Types of eco-friendly sustainable house designs

TINY HOMES

Tiny homes are economical and use less energy, materials, and space than the average-sized home and environmental solution to living simply and sustainably. These are usually between 100-400 square feet, although some can be a bit larger or smaller. These can even be mobile, fitting on a trailer, and can be moved to different places. 

PREFABS 

Prefabricated homes are known to be built off-site and ahead of time and these are made using fewer materials, energy, and space than the average-sized home parts shipped and assembled on the site. There are two kinds of prefab homes which are Panel build and Modular. The construction of both varies greatly. These create less waste than the regular site-built homes. 

STRAW BALE 

Straw bale homes are made using bales of straw as an actual structural component or for insulation. Straw is a natural material that releases no harmful chemicals. Building straw bale homes is quite sustainable. Also, turning straw into something useful rather than burning it into waste helps in reducing the environmental pollution.

ZERO-CARBON

The annual net carbon footprint of a zero-carbon home is zero. These are still tied to the grid but are so airtight, insulated, and need low energy, that these have become carbon-free. These homes balance out any energy costs by producing enough renewable energy.

EARTHSHIPS 

An Earthship is completely self-sustaining which is constructed using both natural and recycled materials. Some of its features include heat and cool themselves naturally, collect wind and solar power, harvest water, etc.

Advantages of online classes

Nowadays online classes have become a new norm for students due to covid-19. It has some advantages. We can monitor our children’s activity easily from our home. We can train them, help them, talk to them, and understand things that we couldn’t have made if online classes were not there. They can learn things at a fast pace. 

For your higher education if you take up online education it will cost you less compared to remote education. Because in online they are just going to take classes from home. Whereas in remote classes they have to travel and they will be tired at the end of the day. And time will be wasted due to traveling. 

Another amazing thing about online classes is your attendance. Yiu can easily get them at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is just switch on your camera and mark your presence in front of the faculty. You don’t have to travel, dress up perfectly, can take your food on time, and can take a rest when you find the lecture not useful.

You can easily ask your doubts to your mentors. If you are in college or school you will find it difficult to ask doubts. But, here you can easily post your doubts on the chatbox and they will pick your questions and answer you. This couldn’t have been possible in remote classes. Where you can’t even share your opinions in front of everybody you will be nervous to open your mouth. Here you will remain anonymous and people won’t give so much attention to your doubts. 

You can easily track your assignment deadlines and work on them to submit them on time. You can easily do the research on the topics they provided. You have to maintain self-discipline because if you miss the deadline they will scold you. So, be careful and submit them on time. Sometimes, they will conduct an open book test. You can easily find answers and score good marks. 

Home is our comfort place. If we are learning from our home, it will be easier to concentrate more and easily grasp the ideas. We can sit and relax for some time even we can chat with our family members during the break which we can’t expect in offline classes. We may be surrounded by our friends but sometimes we may want to feel the comfort of our home. So, at that time online classes are so useful. 

You can easily learn the technical problems and issues. If you are a computer science you might need your laptop and internet connection to know the problems all the time. Sitting at your home you can easily google them and can get answers in seconds. 

All I am saying is online classes have lots of advantages. But, nothing will come without disadvantages. The above-mentioned things could be liked by someone or could be disliked. It depends on them. But in these difficult situations, online classes are the only solution and they are protecting and helping us to gain skills even though we are in our home.

The delta districts of Pudukottai and Sivagangai districts are likely to receive heavy to very heavy rains in the next 24 hours due to heat wave and prevailing atmospheric circulation in the south-western coastal areas. Madurai, Virudhunagar, Ramanathapuram and Thoothukudi districts will receive heavy rains.
Over the next 48 hours, strong winds of 40-50 kmph are expected in Kumarikadal and Gulf of Mannar. Fishermen in these areas should be very careful. The Chennai Meteorological Department has forecast 40 to 50 kmph in Kerala and Karnataka and Lakshadweep.
Cuddalore, Kallakurichi, Salem, Dharmapuri, Dindigul districts will also receive heavy rains. Other districts may receive moderate rainfall. For Chennai, moderate rain is likely in some parts of the city for the next 48 hours. The maximum temperature will be 36 degrees Celsius and the minimum temperature will be 28 degrees Celsius.

World ocean day

This is the second year of a fully virtual celebration of the United Nations World Oceans Day due to the coronavirus pandemic, which hit the world last year.On June 8, the entire world comes together for the largest water body surrounding us, which is the ocean. It is an important part of our earth as it provides us with water, the most integral element that we need in our daily lives.

World Ocean Day History

This was first suggested in 1992 during the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. The aim behind this was to not only celebrate the vast water body and its benefits in our lives but also to raise awareness about what can be done to make it a part of sustainable development. On December 5, 2008, a resolution was passed by the UN General Assembly to designate this day.

World Ocean Day Significance

UNESCO states that this day is observed to remind everyone that oceans are the lungs of our planet. Awareness is raised about how to conserve it and rescue it from the eventual degradation that is caused by our careless activities. Therefore, World Ocean Day is celebrated for this reason all across the world.

World Ocean Day Theme

This year, the theme of World Ocean Day is ‘The Ocean: Life and Livelihoods’. Owing to the pandemic, all the celebrations today will happen virtually

GLOBAL WARMING

Global Warming is defined as the rise in temperature of the earth’s atmosphere due to the excess release of greenhouse gas in the environment. These greenhouse gases generally include gases like Carbon dioxide, Carbon monoxide.The human population is growing we are capturing more land by cutting trees. As the number of trees decreases they inhale less Carbon dioxide. The main reasons of global warming are industrialization, globalisation, deforestation and excessive use fuels which leads to Carbon Emissions.Global warming occurs when carbon dioxide (CO2) and other air pollutants collect in the atmosphere and absorb sunlight and solar radiation that have bounced off the earth’s surface. Normally this radiation would escape into space, but these pollutants, which can last for years to centuries in the atmosphere, trap the heat and cause the planet to get hotter.
Disappearing glaciers, early snowmelt, and severe droughts will cause more dramatic water shortages and continue to increase the risk of wildfires in the American West.
Forests, farms, and cities will face troublesome new pests, heat waves, heavy downpours, and increased flooding. All of these can damage or destroy agriculture and fisheries.
Allergies, asthma, and infectious disease outbreaks will become more common due to increased growth of pollen-producing ragweed, higher levels of air pollution, and the spread of conditions favorable to pathogens and mosquitoes.There are several causes of global warming, which have a negative effect on humans, plants and animals. These causes may be natural or might be the outcome of human activities. In order to curb the issues, it is very important to understand the negative impacts of global warming.

Man-made Causes of Global Warming:
Deforestation:
Plants are the main source of oxygen. They take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen thereby maintaining environmental balance. Forests are being depleted for many domestic and commercial purposes. This has led to an environmental imbalance, thereby giving rise to global warming.
Use of Vehicles:
The use of vehicles, even for a very short distance results in various gaseous emissions. Vehicles burn fossil fuels which emit a large amount of carbon dioxide and other toxins into the atmosphere resulting in a temperature increase.
Chlorofluorocarbon:
With the excessive use of air conditioners and refrigerators, humans have been adding CFCs into the environment which affects the atmospheric ozone layer. The ozone layer protects the earth surface from the harmful ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun. The CFCs has led to ozone layer depletion making way for the ultraviolet rays, thereby increasing the temperature of the earth.

Natural Causes of Global Warming:
Volcanoes:
Volcanoes are one of the largest natural contributors to global warming. The ash and smoke emitted during volcanic eruptions goes out into the atmosphere and affects the climate.
Water Vapour:
Water vapour is a kind of greenhouse gas. Due to the increase in the earth’s temperature more water gets evaporated from the water bodies and stays in the atmosphere adding to global warming.

How Can We Stop Global Warming?
Recycle more. The aim is to cut down the amount of carbon dioxide released in the environment.
Drive less.
Plant trees.
Switch to renewable energy.
Use energy-efficient devices. Use less hot water.
Turn off electronic devices.
Spread awareness.

Poverty

In 2019, the indian government stated that 6.7% of its population is below its official poverty limit.

India now ranks 94th among 107 countries in terms of hunger, and continues to be in the ‘severe’ hunger category according to the Global Hunger Index 2020. According to the study, 14% ofi india’s population is undernourished. Last year, india’s GHI rank was 102 out of 117 countries.More than 800 million people in India are considered poor.
Chhattisgarh is the poorest state with 39.93% of the population living below the poverty line.

Most of them live in the countryside and keep afloat with odd jobs. The lack of employment which provides a livable wage in rural areas is driving many Indians into rapidly growing metropolitan areas such as Bombay, Delhi, Bangalore or Calcutta. There, most of them expect a life of poverty and despair in the mega-slums, made up of millions of corrugated ironworks, without sufficient drinking water supply, without garbage disposal and in many cases without electricity. The poor hygiene conditions are the cause of diseases such as cholera, typhus and dysentery, in which especially children suffer and die.
Poverty in India impacts children, families and individuals in a variety of different ways through:
• High infant mortality
• Malnutrition
• Child labour
• Lack of education
• Child marriage

Poverty is linked with negative conditions such as substandard housing, homelessness, inadequate nutrition and food insecurity, inadequate child care, lack of access to health care, unsafe neighborhoods, and underresourced schools which adversely impact our nation’s children.
Conclusion:
we can avoid poverty in India with-
• Education
• skill development

Understanding our body.

In today’s tiring and stressful life, people have been neglecting their health constantly. Be it clocking in less hours of sleep, or being under intense amount of stress, leading to behavioral changes and changes in food habits. Every day brings something new to the table, but what should remain constant is our lifestyle and our daily nutritional intake.

As Denis Waitley once said, “Time and Health are two assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.” We only become more conscious and aware of our lifestyle, when there are some fluctuations in our body.

As a society, we need to become more aware about the food we eat, the type of nutrients we consume on a daily basis, and for that, we need to understand our body first. Every person has a different nutritional requirement according to their body type. For someone performing resistance training or looking to build muscle mass, protein intake has to be significantly higher than the normal amount. For someone opting for high endurance training, high carbohydrate stores should be present in the body.

So let’s start with the basics of nutrition. Few of the important things we need in our body are proteins, carbs i.e. carbohydrates, fats, fiber and vitamins. We will not delve into details for all of them, but the basic working of these will be explained below.

Carbohydrates, proteins and fats, all of these can provide us with energy in the form of ATP. However, carbohydrates is the most used form for ATP.  Depending upon an individual’s basal metabolic rate, the requirements are different.

For Indians, if I assume a person is having a proper lunch including roti and rice, our carbohydrate and fat diet is pretty up to the mark. However for many people, especially vegetarians, protein sources are less. Hence, it is important to consciously eat more protein rich foods such as soya milk, tofu, paneer, dal and nuts. We need 0.8g protein for every kg body weight and hence protein intake should be at least 80% of the optimal requirement for normal bone growth and a healthy body.

One important aspect of diet that we usually overlook is fiber. Fiber helps for normal passage of food through our body and also helps in digestions. One should include fruits like apple and oranges, breakfast cereals, barley and oats along with beans and potato for fiber intake.

The next aspect of a diet is water. One should drink at least 6 glasses of water daily. Many people only drink water after exercising or during extreme thirst. One should make it a point to continually be sipping water throughout the day to keep the body hydrated and to flush out all the toxins from the body. Drinking water also helps keep the skin fresh and glowing. So, instead of looking at beauty regimes or when tackling skill problems, the first step should be to drink water.

The most underappreciated aspect of diet is sleep. Our body needs at least seven hours of sleep, and for kids, nine. Adequate amount of sleep ensure our body cells get regenerated and our brain gets rest. These are a few simple aspects of life that should one follow daily, and these show fast results, with improvements being seen from the very start.

The sky is pink

        How do you feel when you know that you are gonna die in a few years or few months.

So The story is about a girl who dies at the age of 18. She has an elder brother named Ishan and also an elder sister named Tanya, who died at 5 months old because she was suffering from a disease. She was born with Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). When she was 6 months old she had to undergo a bone marrow Transplant and it had a side effect due to which she had to undergo medical therapy following Chemotherapy, she developed a Serious illness called pulmonary fibrosis- a type of condition that causes irreversible scarring of the lungs.

She was also a speaker at TEDx Pune in the year 2013. She gave inspirational talks from the age of 15 till she died. She also wrote a book named My Little Epiphanies that was published one day before her death. She was a speaker at INK conferences also.

Now, just imagine what will be her state of mind when she knows she is gonna die in a few days. That’s what is called strong mental health. 

      So now the “she” who I referred and talked about is

   “Aisha Chaudhary”

There is a movie called The Sky is Pink. Go, watch out for the movie and understand why The Sky is Pink.

The Mountain

We are a human being. We have a certain power. We have a certain strength.

Problems are like clouds. They come; they go. Sometimes they’re big; Sometimes they’re small. Sometimes they’re not there. Sometimes they’re there everywhere.

But the mountain that sits on the ground does not move with the clouds, doesn’t become bigger or smaller with the clouds. We are the mountain; clouds are our problems.

The Meaning Of Tomorrow

People say “now”, right? I have said “now”. And one day I was thinking about “now”. Now is the most elusive thing there is. Because by the time I say “now”, it’s not now anymore. So, by the time I finish saying “now”, now is gone.

Here is one for you. If you don’t understand the meaning of “one”, what is the point in going on to two? After all , “two” is just two ones.

Likewise, If you don’t understand the meaning of “now”, what is the point in trying to understand the meaning of “tomorrow” ? Because you would be pleasantly surprised that tomorrow too will be just full of a bunch of nows and no more different. You need in your life to know.

lakshadweep : paradise in trouble

A series of controversial changes by a BJP appointee is causing concern on the island chain. The island chain of Lakshadweep is in ferment. A string of regulations proposed by it’s administrator, Praful Khoda Patel, a politician of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has stirred a storm in the archipelago. Calls are mounting for withdrawal of the controversial rules and Patel’s recall. An archipelago of 36 island, Lakshadweep lies in the Arabian Sea. It is just 220 to 440 kilometers from the southern Indian state of Kerala. Its 70,000 strong population is predominantly Muslim. Their cultural and social identity could be under threat. Lakshadweep is a Union Territory, which means it is administered by the federal government through an administrator. The archipelago’s administrator has traditionally been drawn from the bureaucracy. Patel is the first politician to be appointed to the post. A junior minister for home affairs in Gujarat when Prime Minister Narendra Modi was chief minister of the state, Patel is known to be close to Modi. Patel is aslso administrator of the Union Territories of Dadra and Nagra Haveli and Daman and Diu. The policies he adopted there, which were similar to the ones he has introduced in Lakshadweep, have allegedlly benefited lobbies close to him while ignoring local residents. locals fear this will be the case in Lakshadweep too. Patel was appointed as Lakshadweep’s administrator in December 2020. Soon after taking charge, he scrapped the stringent quarantine measures for travelers from the Indian mainland to the archipelago. As a result, Lakshadweep, which had managed to remain COVID free in 2020, soon because a hotbed of coronavirus infections. On May 22, the union Territory reported a total tally of 6,611 positive cases. Its positivity rate is highest in the country. Additionally, Patel has introduced a slew of draft legislations that could have wide ranging impact on the island, and the lives and livelihoods of Lakshadweep’s residents.

A proposed land development plan gives the administrator vast powers to take over land and relocate people, and provides for stringent penalties for those who resist. The plan allows for mining and exploitation of minerals resources in the islands. Under the new rules, the slaughter of cows and transport of beef products has been made an offense. The Prevention of Anti-Social Activities (PASA) Regulations provides for detention of a person without any public disclosure for a period of up to a year. The Patel administration has sought to justify the new rules by claiming that they are aimed at boosting economic development and promoting the archipelago as a tourist destination on par with neighboring Maldives. Indeed, tourist infrastructure in Lakshadweep is rudimentary and unempolyment is high. Providing the economy with a shot in the arm would be welcomed. However, critics point out that the law facilitates the transfer of land to corporations and would result in indigenous communities losing ownership of their land. It provides legal cover for the administration to take over land with or without people’s consent. It is the administration’s prerogative whether or not compensation needs to be paid. Locals fear that they will not benefit much from the development plan. already, fishermen have been evicted from the coast; shelters for their boats have been destroyed to clean up beaches for the setting up of resorts. It has impacted the livelihood of many fisherman. Additionally, the kind of development envisaged under the Patel will “cause the delicate ecology of the island to unravel,” according to marine biologist and scientist Rohan Arthur.

Importantly, there is concern that the BJP’s Hindutva agenda is driving Patel’s reforms. Steps like the beef ban and removing meat from students’ meal are seen as communal and anti-Muslim moves. The administration has also removed restrictions on the sale of alcohol. These moves have hurt the sentiments of Lakshadweep’s predominantly Muslim population. Protests are growing on the island and in social media. In addition to local residents, celebrities and opposition political parties are calling for withdrawal of the controversial legislations. They are demanding that Patel be recalled. Lakshadweep is strategically located. It lies close to the Maldives and important Sea Lanes of Communications in the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. The island chain has provided New Delhi with little reason for concern so far. However, the recently introduced changes could turn a peaceful population into an angry and restive one.

Environmental change to demolish Indian storm!

“A worldwide temperature alteration sets stage for perilous downpours !”

The Indian storm is probably going to get significantly more perilous and wetter as an unnatural weather change adjusts the framework, new examination says. India has seen an adjustment of rainstorm design throughout the years as environment interruptions negatively affect the framework in the subcontinent. The exploration distributed in the diary Science Advances expressed that researchers dissected changes in the previous million years to reason that rainstorms are set for the more terrible. “We track down that the projected rainstorm reaction to continuous ice soften and rising carbon dioxide levels is completely steady with elements of the past 0.9 million years,” the exploration paper said. The group of analysts investigated mud tests recuperated from the Bay of Bengal to arrive at the resolution. The group bored 200 m long center examples during a two-month research visit on a changed over oil-penetrating boat, the JOIDES Resolution. The examples gave a top to bottom investigation of storm precipitation. Researchers investigated the fossils of tiny fish implanted in the example that had kicked the bucket more than many years as rainstorm downpours put more freshwater into the narrows, diminishing the saltiness at the surface.

Examining the examples, specialists tracked down that the high precipitation and low saltiness came following a time of high carbon dioxide focus in the air and falling ice volumes. “We can check in the course of recent years that the increase in carbon dioxide in the environment has been trailed by generous expansions in precipitation in the South Asian rainstorm framework. The expectations of the environment models are magnificently predictable with what we find in the previous million years,” Clemens was cited as saying by New York Times. The Indian rainstorm, which is one of the superb reasons for floods in a few pieces of the nations as streams get immersed from extreme precipitation, could arise as a significant concern for individuals as the danger of perilous season develops.

 The storm is additionally key in farming that is subject to occasional downpours for irrigation.Meanwhile, the Indian Meteorological Department said that the Southwest Monsoon has covered the upper east district, almost four days after its typical date. The Southwest Monsoon made a beginning over Kerala, which denotes the start of the four-month precipitation season, on June 3 following a deferral of two days. The framework has effectively covered Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana since its appearance only days prior. In any case, the climate body has anticipated that the storm is required to be typical this season just as in June, a month basic for planting.

The route ahead is to regard the weakness of the locale. It can’t be anyone’s conflict that the Himalayan district should not see improvement. The inquiry to consider is the way it ought to be created: By building streets and hydro-power projects, or through nearby economies dependent on the travel industry, which don’t neutralize nature. It is likewise a reality that the changing storm example will expect us to enhance the utilization of each drop and not permit downpours to become crushing floods. Really at that time will the Himalayan misfortune not be rehashed. 

Indians realize that the storm is the genuine account priest of India. Plainly the chance is to ensure that each drop of this downpour is collected and utilized in the drawn out dry season. Yet, this downpour will show up in more fierce occasions – which additionally implies that the designing to catch it the nation over should be better. We should get ready for seepage with the goal that when a downpour comes it tends to be channelized and enhanced. Holding and channelizing precipitation should turn into the country’s central goal. It is our best way to know what’s to come. This implies that each water body, each channel and each catchment of downpour must be shielded. These are the sanctuaries of present day India. Worked to adore downpour.

coffee that rules the world

coffee is an emotion for many like me.
so talking about me ,in my past days when i used to visit a coffee house quite often not just for a coffee also for the sound of people laughing chatting , their laughter and the different and interesting characters in the room .

Why is self-love important?

We have all heard great things about self-love and the people who manage to master it, when they say it, we feel like it is too much work. Why does the simple process of loving ourselves feel so distant?

To understand that, we must know what self-love is? It is not just the mere act of treating ourselves to our favorite ice-cream, or an hour of massage for relaxation. It is the act of not changing ourselves for the sake of others and staying true to ourselves. There are many forms of self-love. Not changing ourselves at all might be a stupid decision, because the world we live in, is so fast-paced that we will get left behind for sure if we don’t change.

The slight difference between being stupid and being prudent is finding what really defines you. If a characteristic defines you, sets you apart in a crowd, then that is something that you should cherish and not change. Again, if it is something that is minimal, and trivial and causes problem unnecessarily, then you can think of ways in which you can modify it.

We all would have heard of world famous South Korean Boy Band, BTS. It is by their campaign of “Love Yourself, Speak Yourself” that this concept of self-love spread to millions. Due to their huge fan base, ARMY, their message of staying true to ourselves, and loving ourselves for who we are and cherishing ourselves. When speaking about the band themselves, they faced many criticisms and had to face many backlashes for their identity as “Idols”.

They had constant support from their ARMY and they broke down the stereotype of K-Pop and are still breaking records by minute, because they found an identity for themselves and are helping many in their way.

We need not be a great artist or a famous person to find who we are. If you love your home cooked food rather than the fast food, then you have no need to change just because of peer pressure. If you love dressing according to the modern trends, then you can find a way to satisfy the societal norms without degrading yourself.

It is also important to remember that the person we love, should love us for who we are, rather than who we pretend to be for the society. If they force you change something about you because they don’t like it, then it is better you leave them, be it friendship, relationship, whatever it may be. Always remember the people who love you won’t find faults with you, rather appreciate for it. Don’t even compare yourself to other, you might not know what difficulties they might be facing and they might even feel jealous of you for something you have.

So, rather than feeling sorry for ourselves for bad things happening to you, look in the brighter side and be grateful for what you have and try to polish your talents, who knows, you might be the next BTS, helping lost people find their paths and be successful in your life.

Coviedshield vs Covaxin

 

 

 

 

Coviedshield vs Covaxin

 

Two doses of Covishield vaccine produced more antibodies than Covaxin doses, but there were relatively fewer instances of ‘breakthrough infections’ after the latter, reports a study of healthcare workers  in India.

The study is being peer-reviewed and has been submitted to a journal but appears as a preprint in MedrXiv, an online repository, and is among the few studies of the real world effectiveness of vaccination in India. The study, by a collective of doctors, shows that none of the participants, who were also all doctors and got both doses of vaccines, were ill and only about 6% tested positive at different points of the vaccination schedule. While both vaccines were protective, there were differences in the protection accorded by a single dose of the vaccines. 515 healthcare workers from 13 States and covering 22 cities were evaluated from January to May 2021. Their blood samples were also tested for the presence, quantity of antibodies produced and levels of the specific antibodies that are directed to the spike protein of the virus, widely held to be a proxy of protection. A single dose of Covishield elicited about 10 times the antibodies than Covaxin whereas a second dose narrowed the gap somewhat, with Covishield-triggered antibodies about six times that of Covaxin-stimulated ones, the study found. Though the spike protein remains the key target of most vaccines, ICMR and Bharat Biotech, the makers of Covaxin, have previously said that being a vaccine made out of an inactivated virus, it elicited a ‘broader immune’ response, meaning antibodies aimed at different parts of the coronavirus to neutralise it. T cell immunity, that is reported to elicit a longer lasting protection wasn’t measured in the study. While real world efficacy data of Covaxin and India-centric data on Covishield isn’t public yet, recent studies have shown that most vaccines including Covaxin and Covishield have reduced response to some coronavirus variants such as them .

The study authors also evaluated the relationship of immune response to gender, a history of testing positive for COVID prior to vaccination and co-morbidities. Dr A.K. Singh, of the GD Hospital and Diabetes Institute, Kolkata and among the authors of the paper, said the greater number of infections after the second wave was probably due to the increased number of cases after April and the high exposure of the study participants  all doctors in COVID hospitals to patients during the second wave.

Pollution

Pollution in India is a very familiar word to each one of us . We were borne with it and we are facing it . If we want our future children not to suffer from what we are suffering today we have to remove the pollution . Now the question arises how can we do the same ? There are a few measures following that can help us with the same :

Use of Eco friendly products = A lot of products that we use in our daily lives can cause a lot of damage to our nature . Such activities should be stopped as soon as possible .

Reducing dumping of waste = A lot of waste should be recycled instead of dumping in the rivers and drains which can cause immense dangerous effects to the aquatic life . This should be stopped as soon as possible .

Using Bicycles = We all must use bicycles in place of vehicles that consume petrol or diesel which can damage the environment .

These are some steps if we follow can change our lives to the extreme way and should be practiced as soon as possible .

ANIMAL CRUELTY

Animal cruelty is a big deal to people all across the world. The meaning of animal cruelty is inflicting pain and causing suffering to any type of animal. Animal cruelty is growing worldwide in today’s society, and the most common identified cruelty’s is scientific research, abandonment, and mistreatment. There are animals all throughout beaten and starved by their heartless owners.

The sadness, pain, and feelings animals have are all the same feelings that humans have when they are treated with cruelty, neglect, and abuse. Animal cruelty is a terrible crime that can lead to serious harm or even death of innocent animals. There are many organizations that are looking to seek help against animal cruelty.

Animal cruelty may not only occur when an owner beats or assaults their pet, but also during animal testing. Some owners are ignorant and do not even realize when they are abusing and neglecting their animals. In most cases though their are owners that are intentionally beating and starving animals. They do not have a voice like we do. It is time to stand up and make a change.

Stricter animal cruelty laws are necessary to prevent and stop the horrendous crimes committed against defenseless animals. Animals are abused in many different ways and it happens way too often.

It is up to us to bring awareness and help animals. All living things have a right to live on this Earth but we become insensitive to their pain, only because animals can’t speak the language of humans.

We see abuse towards animals, but most of us never actually did anything because it is not our “responsibility”. You should not ignore it and you should report it to the police.

History of Facebook

Facebook, American company offering online social networking services. Facebook was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, all of whom were students at Harvard University. Facebook became the largest social network in the world, with more than one billion users as of 2012, and about half that number were using Facebook every day. The company’s headquarters are in Menlo Park, California.

Access to Facebook is free of charge, and the company earns most of its money from advertisements on the Web site. New users can create profiles, upload photos, join a preexisting group, and start new groups. The site has many components, including Timeline, a space on each user’s profile page where users can post their content and friends can post messages; Status, which enables users to alert friends to their current location or situation; and News Feed, which informs users of changes to their friends’ profiles and status. Users can chat with each other and send each other private messages. Users can signal their approval of content on Facebook with the Like button, a feature that also appears on many other Web sites.The attractiveness of Facebook stems in part from cofounder Zuckerberg’s insistence from the very beginning that members be transparent about who they are; users are forbidden from adopting false identities. The company’s management argued that transparency is necessary for forming personal relationships, sharing ideas and information, and building up society as a whole. It also noted that the bottom-up, peer-to-peer connectivity among Facebook users makes it easier for businesses to connect their products with consumers.

In September 2004 TheFacebook added the Wall to a member’s online profile. This widely used feature let a user’s friends post information on their Wall and became a key element in the social aspect of the network. By the end of 2004, TheFacebook had reached one million active users. However, the company still trailed the then-leading online social network, Myspace, which boasted five million members.The year 2005 proved to be pivotal for the company. It became simply Facebook and introduced the idea of “tagging” people in photos that were posted to the site. With tags, people identified themselves and others in images that could be seen by other Facebook friends. Facebook also allowed users to upload an unlimited number of photos. In 2005 high-school students and students at universities outside the United States were allowed to join the service. By year’s end it had six million monthly active users.In 2006 Facebook opened its membership beyond students to anyone over the age of 13. As Zuckerberg had predicted, advertisers were able to create new and effective customer relationships. For example, that year, household product manufacturer Procter & Gamble attracted 14,000 people to a promotional effort by “expressing affinity” with a teeth-whitening product. This kind of direct consumer engagement on such a large scale had not been possible before Facebook, and more companies began using the social network for marketing and advertising.Privacy remains an ongoing problem for Facebook. It first became a serious issue for the company in 2006, when it introduced News Feed, which consisted of every change that a user’s friends had made to their pages. After an outcry from users, Facebook swiftly implemented privacy controls in which users could control what content appeared in News Feed. In 2007 Facebook launched a short-lived service called Beacon that let members’ friends see what products they had purchased from participating companies. It failed because members felt that it encroached on their privacy. Indeed, a survey of consumers in 2010 put Facebook in the bottom 5 percent of companies in customer satisfaction largely because of privacy concerns, and the company continues to be criticized for the complexity of its user privacy controls and for the frequent changes it makes to them.

Depression is the next cancer

there is a lot of misconceptions about depression these days .
there are total four types of depression which are
1.situational
2.biological
3.psychological
4.existential

 


ohh dont worry i am not going to explain all four in detail.
depression includes sadness ,irritablity ,loss of intrest in their usual activities and much more .
now, let us understand what causes depression
many life events like long term unemployment or loneliness ,prolonged work stress or loss of a family member .
and ya depression also can be genetic .
and the best thing about depression is that it is treatable
many a times just talking to the right person helps to curb this thing .

 


yes ,i agree that now a days our parents dont believe that depression a real thing .it is because they have been born and brought up in joint families with a lot of cousions whey they always had anyone to speak with and there were people who understood them and now there are nuclear families and workholic parents they hardly get any time to rest so talking with their child is way too much stress for them .they are always in search of more money more oppurtunities and they even forget about the mental health of their children .the funfact is that it is not even their fault .it is the generation gap where they lost the emotional touch with their kids in search of money.


parents must understand every second matters when they are with their kids anything they say can trigger the child towards depression ,maybe the parents might say something out of work stress and raise voice on their child and they dont even remember but they never know how much a child overthinks it and cries about it for years .


so a humble request for all the parents do find some time for your children talk with them understand their problems listen when they want to talk you might save a drowning life bring that emotional touch never dare to say that their problems are very silly ,the child must have prepared a lot and collected a lot of confidence to speack with you about the problems dont make them think that they wasted your time ,let me tell you that if you ever make your chgild think this way then dont ever think that your child will ever again speack to you about their personal problems .


listen to the crying souls who needs help
we ALL HAVE LOST SO MUCH IN THIS PANDEMIC so we cant afford to loose more save the children from depression .

Why vaccination is Important ?

India is dealing with the second wave of COVID-19 which have destroyed many families. It is expecting that upcoming third wave will spread more disaster and ruin several families if we can’t control it on time. COVID-19 was an unexpected virus which was first discovered in Wuhan,China. In India, The first case of COVID-19 was found in January 2020 since the time our country is fighting it with strength and unity. It is a global pandemic through which every country in the world has suffered. The developed countries were not even able to control this virus. India has a 2nd highest population in the country and being a developing country and working hard to reach at the position of developed countries. It was very hard for us to maintain the balance between the economy and health.

Since 2020, Every country was working towards finding a vaccine which can help them overcome from the deadly virus. India has also developed two vaccines which is Covishield and Covaxin which passed all the stages of testing. First, It was available for those who were above the age of 60 years . After some months, Government allowed every person who is above 45 years to get the vaccine and fight strongly against the virus. Since, 1st May 2021 Government has allowed people above 18 years to get their vaccination done. It is a very tough job to vaccinate everyone in a country where the amount of population is massive. Many rumours have started since the time vaccine has been developed which created a new challenge in front of government to convince everyone for getting their vaccination done.Rumours can be spreaded very easily and have a huge impact on people who are not educated enough to know the difference between fake and real news. When the journalist asked some people , Several people have different reasons for not taking the vaccine. Influencing other’s mind in India is very easy. Multiple techniques have been practicing around spreading all the false information regarding the impacts of vaccine.

Everybody needs to understand that Vaccine was developed to help us fighting the battle with COVID-19 easily. It is a vaccine which provides your body a shield and develop stronger immunity in fighting the COVID-19. It is a life saviour medicine which can never harm you, It has gone through several stages of testing after approval by several authorities then any vaccine is approved for use. Now, It become our responsibility to spread awareness about the importance of vaccine and help them in every possible way. Being an Indian citizen, It is important to not spread any news before verifying it on any of our social media accounts. Health is very important and Vaccine is giving us a chance by providing a shield in protecting us and our loved from the virus. Take care of your family and friends.

NCC – Elective course

National Cadet Corps (NCC) the world’s largest voluntary uniformed youth organization formally established on 15th July 1948, under XXXI Parliamentary Act. It Consists of 3 wings- Army wing, Air Wing (raised in April 1950), Naval Wing (raised in July 1952) which represents the all the three Defense Service. So far NCC has been considered as a club activity or extracurricular activity. Now the Government has taken the decision to NCC as General Elective Credit Course (GECC), this decision was taken as per the New Education Policy 2020, where students can choose their subject of interest not confined to the ones offered by the institution alone.

NCC will be GECC under Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in at least 91 Universities and not as extracurricular activity. This happened as a result of letter passed by the UGC (University Grants Commission) to all the Universities on April15.

The ‘B’ and ‘C’ Certificate exam syllabus has been designed as per CBCS of NEP 2020 which provides a total of 24 credit points for 6 semesters. The students will be receiving 4 credits in semester one and two, 10 credits for third and fourth semester and rest of 10 credits for fifth and sixth semester. The current strength of NCC cadet is about 14.2 lakhs who receive basic military training under the organization.

By making NCC as an elective course it would reach out to more youth in the nation and help them get more opportunity to explore many activities.

How to Stay Motivated

I recently finished Steve Martin’s wonderful autobiography, Born Standing Up.

Martin’s story offers a fascinating perspective on what it takes to stick with habits for the long run. Comedy is not for the timid. It is hard to imagine a situation that would strike fear into the hearts of more people than performing alone on stage and failing to get a single laugh. And yet Steve Martin faced this fear every week for eighteen years. In his words, “10 years spent learning, 4 years spent refining, and 4 years as a wild success.”

Why is it that some people, like Martin, stick with their habits—whether practicing jokes or drawing cartoons or playing guitar—while most of us struggle to stay motivated? How do we design habits that pull us in rather than ones that fade away? Scientists have been studying this question for many years. While there is still much to learn, one of the most consistent findings is that the way to maintain motivation and achieve peak levels of desire is to work on tasks of “just manageable difficulty.”

NEET IS NOT IMPORTANT FOR TAMILNADU WHY

NEET is an important exam for medical entrance exam in India. In India there are many syllabuses for each state it differs but there is also a syllabus which is common that is called as Central Board of Secondary Education. If we study in this central board of secondary education we can gain more marks in this NEET exam. As the system and invention get devolped we should also try to accompany through it and live. Day or time will not stay with us it would be changing we also be changing we are not as before 20 years we all have changed a lot. NEET exam came into an existence in the year 2013 within 8 years it had made many changes in this medical field. NEET is an exam for the medical students to study in government medical college they should write this NEET exam as an entrance exam. We should get more marks in 12 exam to get an eligibility of writing this NEET exam then in this NEET according to the cutoff mark will be selected. Many students didn’t able to clear this NEET exam so they went to foreign countries to learn after learning if they come to India to work as a doctor, he/she must work in a government hospital for 1 year and also write a exam then only they can be consider as a doctor. National Medical Commission (NMC) is an Indian regulatory body of 33 members which regulates medical education and medical professionals. It replaced the Medical Council of India on 25 September 2020. There are some medical colleges in India nearly five hundred forty two colleges but students are many then than the colleges. The medical council has decided to filter the students so that they have introduced this NEET. This NEET exam is very highly pressure for the students who are in villages because they couldn’t write it easily in Tamilnadu, we are following a syllabus which is totally different from this CBSE syllabus so this is very difficult. Many students are affected by this NEET exam when they didn’t do the exam well are on the result many students have lost their life. In every year during the NEET exam and on the result day all will be in a tensed situation. There are many rules to write this exam it itself terrifies all students in tension some forget what they are doing. So for all this situation court told to give seven percentage seats for the students those who are in villages so that there were 33,000 people who wrote the exam in it 450 students were selected. In Tamilnadu we don’t want NEET exam because of that many students have lost their life. Only when students go far a coaching centers they can clear this exam some parents force their children force their children from sixth standard itself and some parents change the school to CBSE from eleventh and twelth standard itself then there students cannot study well as in that school. So we Tamilnadu strictly prohibit this NEET exam because of this many students have no confidence in themselves that I can achieve anything in life. If there is no NEET many problems will come to a solution.

 

How can we prevent the next pandemic?

We can start by learning from countries that have limited pandemic deaths much more successfully – like Taiwan, South Korea, Germany, Denmark and New Zealand. Here are eight lessons we can learn from them:

Be Prepared 

Make sure we have a Pandemic Plan we’ve tried, tested and learned from (not simply shelved if we didn’t like the results).

*Ensure we’ve got the capacity to respond. In a pandemic, countries all over the world will be competing to source diagnostic tests, PPE (personal protective equipment) and ventilators. This means we need a stockpile of equipment – plus UK based diagnostic and equipment companies, so we can be self-sufficient if we need to.

*Make sure we have enough CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) masks. They are a lower cost, less invasive aid to breathing compared with ventilators, although ventilators will still be needed for the most serious cases.

*Involve logistic/emergency planning experts (from the military, private sector or disaster relief charities) from day one, to ensure policies are deliverable and to oversee successful implementation – like making sure the right PPE gets to where it is needed, when it is needed.

*Hospital beds probably aren’t an initial priority. That’s because prevention is always better than cure and we now know how to turn exhibition centres into hospitals at short notice if we need to.

*What we can’t do at short notice is turn people into doctors, nurses and public health professionals from scratch. So, we need to start training more health professionals now. Given recent NHS winter crises we’ll probably need them for years ahead anyway.

Take Public Health Seriously

What COVID-19 has illustrated is that in pandemics people with underlying health conditions are usually most at risk of dying – and with COVID-19 that includes people who are obese.

A doctor currently working in an ICU unit with COVID-19 patients advises us, ‘Unfortunately COVID patients with obesity don’t usually do well. I’ve personally seen this on multiple occasions. Obesity affects pulmonary function and lowers lung compliance, which negatively affects ventilator management.’ Patients like these are most likely to require weeks of expensive, time consuming intensive care and put huge strain on the NHS and its doctors and nurses. Some health conditions are unavoidable and we don’t want to start victim blaming – but the risk of many health conditions can be reduced by following a healthy lifestyle. Importantly, as we have identified as a health charity, there’s much more governments, businesses and employers can do to make healthy choices the easy choices for people.

If people are healthier this won’t stop pandemic deaths – but it should reduce them.This means that instead of cutting funding for Public Health, the front line in disease prevention, the government should be investing in prevention.

Don’t Waste Time – Respond Quickly

When a new virus emerges there’s a chance that its true extent and impact will initially be under-reported in the country of origin, whether to save face politically or because of difficulty diagnosing the virus. That’s the first potential delay. Then, there’s likely to be a time lag while scientists try to identify the virus, its speed and spread of infection, its effect on health and how best to contain it – and while politicians consider the implications.

Border Control

Pandemics don’t respect national boundaries. International travel by land, air or sea (including cruise ships) can help the rapid spread of pandemics. So, it makes sense to close borders early (and arrange for returning Brits to go into quarantine).

Build and maintain public confidence

This is important if action like nationwide social distancing needs to be introduced and then sustained. Our advice to government is:

*Promise less, deliver more – so you build credibility

*Lead by example – visibly do what you’re telling the public to do.

*Ensure you’ve got the right experts working with you (including logistic experts and experts in the immune system), so you can agree the right policies and then deliver on them.

*Share the advice you’re receiving with the public, so they can understand what they are being asked to do and why.

Conclusion

What we have learned from the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the world is that, as in most aspects of health, prevention beats cure. That means:

 

*Be prepared for a pandemic (in reality not just on paper)

*Take public health seriously – because a healthy population will usually be more resistant to infection

*Don’t waste time – respond quickly, including border controls

*Track, Trace and Isolate – to deprive the virus of the human hosts it needs to spread

*Stop hospitals and care homes spreading infection – by taking the action needed to reduce the number of cases needing medical treatment in the first place while ensuring there’s enough PPE for staff when cases do need treatment.

*Build and maintain public confidence – leading by example and delivering what you promise.

 

“REASONS WHY TOO MUCH SUGAR IS BAD FOR YOU”

“REASONS WHY TOO MUCH SUGAR IS BAD FOR YOU”

Consumption of a high amount of sugar causes several diseases. Sugar is a sweet poison that is bad for you and it damages the body gradually from the inside. 52 percent of the whole population is suffering from serious diseases and the consumption of sugar is directly or indirectly reason for the contraction. Indian’s use sugar in almost everything. Sweetened tea is the main source because many people drink tea many times a day. The awareness among people about the diseases caused by sugar is, therefore, the need of the hour.

Some of the risk factors caused by the consumption of sugar are as follows:

DIABETES:
Diabetes is the most common disease caused by sugar. One of the strongest risk factors caused by too much consumption of sugar is obesity. Obesity then causes diabetes. Moreover, it causes insulin resistance. This resistance increases the blood sugar level that increases the more risk of diabetes type 2.

According to a survey, the core reason for increasing diabetes worldwide is the high consumption of beverages like soda, cold drinks, and packed juices. People who prefer more sweet beverages are more likely to get diabetes than others.

SKIN AGING:
Skin aging is a natural process but one can get wrinkles and pre-mature skin aging at a young age because of the consumption of high sugar. The reaction between sugar and protein is formed by advanced glycation end products. This reaction causes a key role in skin aging.

Consumption of the products high with carbohydrates and sugar leads to many other skin problems. According to a survey, women who consumed more sugar developed wrinkled and dark circles quickly than those women who did not consume high sugar.

Lower consumption of sugar gives fresh and better skin appearance.

CANCER:
Excess of anything is bad, so excessive sugar consumption is also bad for you. It increases the risk of cancer. High consumption of sugar through foods and beverages increases the chance of cancer.

Over 430,000 people were found with cancer due to the consumption of sugar. Due to sugar, they developed esophageal cancer, small intestine cancer, and pleural cancer.

A survey showed that women who consume sweet buns, cakes, and cookies 3-5 times a day have more chances to develop endometrial cancer. Women who take a normal amount of sugar and consume less sugary products have been observed as healthy and better in shape.

HEART DISEASES:
The number one cause of death worldwide is heart diseases. High sugar consumption leads to obesity first, then diabetes and then inflammation in the body. It causes blood sugar and high blood pressure which ultimately attacks the heart. Moreover, the trend of consuming too many beverages like sweetened drinks and sugary juices; causes atherosclerosis. This disease causes artery-clogging deposits.

A research was conducted in which 30,000 people were observed, among them those who consume 17-21 percent of calories from sugar had a 40 percent high risk of death from heart disease.
