Rise of Indigenous Kabaddi Game in Recent Years in India
Kabaddi is an indigenous sport, which finds mention in ancient scriptures such as Mahabharata. Kabaddi originated in Tamil Naidu over 4000 years ago. Past fans include the Buddha and the prince who played to display their strength and win their brides. Gautam Buddha was the promoter of this game and played religiously with his peers.
Initiate of Kabaddi in International
Kabaddi was being played at a competitive level internationally. The sport became part of the Beijing Asian Games in 1990. Women Kabaddi also got introduced in the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou. But sadly, despite accolades. Kabaddi never got its due recognition and was almost forgotten post-90s. In post-1980 would be played kabaddi their youth. For them, sports was synonyms with skill, skill, speed, strategy, thinking, timelessness, thrill and drama but many people from next-generation perceived it as rural entertainment and urban, India had little or no interest. But this misconception had changed.
How the popularity has risen through best indicative
The popularity of Kabaddi has risen steadily over the years to the point it has become India’s second most-watched sport after the Indian Premier League (IPL). After interest in kabaddi was kick-started with the 2006 Asian Games, the launch of the Pro Kabaddi league twice in years, interest in kabaddi has risen and it now competes with football as India most popular sport after cricket
Until 2014, kabaddi was popular in rural areas, but the league format has given kabaddi. Much deserved intuitional recognition. Female viewership for kabaddi has also grown in the recent past.
Through PKL many beat kabaddi players and local players can showcase their talent on TV and Ground. So, youth are easily attracted to kabaddi in recent years.
Kabaddi popularity is also increasing through the advertisement by the various media like Star Groups, Sony Groups especially. The ‘Le Panga’ slogan becomes popular among children. And children also movements their bodies like some actions of players who performed in kabaddi matches.
Over the years, we have seen a kabaddi financial stability. And kabaddi players are satisfied with income and popularizing at a much speed.
Indian National Team also performed very well in world cups and won six world cups.
In kabaddi, there is a various edge of the seat experience. Kabaddi in itself is a fast-paced game and short format of matches.
So, if we see recent years so kabaddi had risen a lot with great speed in India. People have also supported it. Google Treads’ kabaddi resurgence is also confirmed by another measure.

The most of changes that occurred in history are created by youth because of their emphasizing nature and power they have within to share the world its courage, its present beauty that will create a history for future generations somewhere in the future which will change the world by the time it passes on. The study that leads to the past particularly in human affairs can be termed as history. What lessons can we draw from youth works history? What we tend to think of as ‘the essential features of youth work is carried by young people, policymakers, researchers, youth workers, parents, and other social professionals. Youth work is group work, work in leisure time, based on informal learning, based on association and recreation, …These characters have a long history. They sometimes structure our practices without being visible or questionable. Therefore, it is useful to be aware of where we come from and where we think we are going. How did youth work principles evolve through history? In these roots, one can identify two powerful and often competing sources of inspiration: the social question and the youth question. The former started up as a public intervention to deal with the integration of the lower social classes in mainstream society. The latter starts from a lifeworld perspective and is an attempt to change society so that it fits better the needs of young people, emancipating them as a distinct age group. Depending on the perspective one takes, the integration efforts consider either the social context or the individual development of young people. Throughout history, youth work has always been oscillating between its two legs, showing itself as a ‘social practice mediating between the private aspirations of young people and public expectations from the established society. Which policies have already been tried before, although they are now introduced as brand-new? History won't tell us what to do in the future, but it is a mirror in which today's practices and policies can be critically examined. During earlier times when there were no tools and machines still, they made their life being in the forest by using all stone age stools that was the great start by them created history. About the architecture that time all went by handmade it took many years to make wonder thing but today we are in advanced level but still the value of earlier life is greater than now. In layman’s language, everyone has earlier life and life never come back so whatever we do sets a history for future generation but who is not at present but their remembrance will ever make the true history and ever be.

Silence isn't always golden
Silence is a virtue - you must have heard it many times. But does this golden proverb of old days still hold true for every scenario? Obviously, when you are attending a class/meeting and your teacher/boss is speaking, maintaining silence would be the wise decision to make (unless you are that rebellious student who's always up for challenging times). But every coin has two sides and nothing in today's era can be completely generalised. Because exceptions are always there. (Reminded of inorganic chemistry, huh?) Silence may speak a lot more than words but I still believe that silence isn't always golden.
Being unjust is a sin. But tolerating injustice without even protesting against it, is a bigger sin.
Remember the Nirbhaya case, which shook the entire nation, when a Delhi girl was brutally gangraped? Had it not been for the vigorous uproar and nationwide protests, the culprits wouldn't have been brought to book so easily. The Indian judicial system, as efficient as it may be, bears the burden of many pending cases. Had it not been for the people who came together and raised their voices for the victim, strongly condemning this incident, justice wouldn't have been meted out so easily and so quickly. Neither would have such revolutionary reforms been made in the laws of the State, had it not been for those people who chose not to remain silent.
The Kandahar hijacking, friends, when IC 814, an Indian aircraft en route from Kathmandu to Delhi was hijacked in 1999. Three deadly terrorists had to be released from the Indian jails in order to free the hostages. When India raised its concerns about such terror elements and nations which sheltered such elements, the whole world was silent. Not a single world-leader or so-called influential nation supported us. And since then, there have been several terrorist attacks, not only in India but also around the world, including the attacks in France, Berlin and the US. The nations which preferred to maintain silence haven't been spared either. And all of this due to one wrong decision of being silent when they needed to speak up and raise their voices.
I agree that there's a difference between raising your voice and making a noise. It's up to you to shape your voice into the right words for a good cause.There are a lot many examples to prove my argument. There have been several incidents when silence wasn't the golden choice, instead it was the uproar which led to justice. But I believe these two major examples mentioned above are enough to convey to you the point I'm stressing upon. I'd like to conclude it with the following lines:
"There is chaos all around
The world is restless, full of noise.
This is Kalyug, my friend,
Silence won't work.
If you want justice, raise your voice."
Thank you for reading (in case you managed to reach here). When you have the means and a voice, use it to help those who have none. Silence may be golden but at times, it needs to be broken too.

THE NEXT BIG THING IN FASHION
“As consumers, we have so much power to change the world by just being careful with what we buy.” – Emma Watson.
In ‘The Good Place,’ an American comedy series, a dedicated points system is maintained to decide who goes to heaven in their afterlife and who goes to hell. Each positive impact you create during your time on Earth earns you more points, and each negative impact deducts it. However, this practice was fallacious and flawed. Allow me to elaborate.
In 1534, a person had gifted a dozen roses to their grandmother, naturally earning them points. Fast forward to a few centuries later, in 2009, another person had also given a dozen roses to their grandmother, but this time, they lost points.
Quite a baffling situation, isn’t it? Let me explain what transpired here.
Although there is no visible difference in both gestures, the latter had placed their order via a mobile phone manufactured in a sweatshop. If that was not enough, the flowers contained harmful pesticides and were hand-picked by exploited migrant workers. Additionally, the mode of transportation used to deliver the flowers released a massive carbon footprint, and the person’s money went to a billionaire CEO, infamous for nefarious activities.
Thus, they had to face unintended consequences for a well-intentioned gesture.
Now I pose this question to you, dear reader: Would you consider buying a product if you were made aware of its atrocious manufacturing process?
Whatever your answer was, read on to find out why I laid out this elaborate scenario.
Sustainability (n) A word thrown around like confetti by almost every lifestyle brand but understood by a handful.
We all would’ve chanced upon this word at least a couple of times in passing. What exactly does this mean, and how much of an impact could this make?
Sustainable fashion refers to the design, manufacture, and distribution of products for usage in environmentally friendly ways.
Similarly, ethical fashion caters to producing goods that do not exploit or harm workers and instead ensure humane working conditions that value their welfare. It also includes the prevention of any forms of tests on animals or using them for products.
Since both these methods promote moral practices - albeit in slightly different ways - they play equally important roles in the fashion revolution.
Fast fashion brands are the primary antagonists in this story of good versus evil and continue to churn out new goods at an alarming speed. The practice sets a dangerous precedent in the minds of consumers who believe that adapting themselves to changing trends is the only way to remain fashionably relevant. The thought leads them to be indifferent so long as their needs are satisfied and fall into the dark side of fashion.
With people splurging on accessible, in-vogue and cheap products, it is only a matter of time before they realize that their goods come at a costly price.
Consumers need to start paying attention to slow fashion commodities manufactured under acceptable working conditions that embrace cultural diversity and do not involve mass productions.
The impact of these sustainable products could be effective in getting customers of major brands to let go of their mindless “fast-fashion” consumption.
However, their lasting effects cause sustainable products to be generally more expensive, thus significantly reducing their demand.
As consumers who are conscious of the environment and ethical values, we have the power to choose to spend a few extra bucks and invest in sustainable and long-lasting products. If we do that, we all take a collective step forward in creating a positive impact for generations to come.
The ball is now in your court. May your choice be wise!

Walking, talking collections of atoms:
is that all we are?
Recently, I watched Chemical Hearts on Amazon Prime. The movie features two teenagers, both 18, who fall in love.
Grace, the female lead, is a depressed teenager, who injured her leg in an accident she and her boyfriend met with. She survived, he didn’t.
Henry, the male lead, is a shy, introverted teen. He falls in love with Grace as they walk home together daily. They also happen to be working in the same department, editing newsletters.
As I sat watching the movie, I was hoping that it wouldn’t turn out to be another of those meaningless farces—remember To All the Bright Places?—one watches now and then, to while away time. Unfortunately, it did.
That aching emptiness within
The movie brought home to me that sense of the great void within. It’s in all of us—we feel it every day—that nagging feeling that we’re missing something, that we’re all made for bigger and better things. But here we are, caught up with this daily humdrum that we call life, struggling to find meaning and purpose. Not knowing where we’ve come from, or why we’re here. Or where we’re headed.
St Augustine said it right: he said, “There’s a God-shaped vacuum in all of us, that only God can fill.” We might try to fill that gaping void with cheap substitutes—drugs, alcohol, or even sex, perhaps. But the void remains. It takes God to fill that void.
We might think of ourselves as the ashes of dead stars, or a collection of atoms, that come together for a brief time, and then, fall apart. And that at life’s end, we’re dispersed back into nothingness, and that, as Grace says in the movie, as she gazes at the stars, that we’re given a clean slate.
Is everything meaningless?
The Bible says this emptiness is felt daily by people who don’t know God. In the book, Ecclesiastes, King Solomon records what life is for those who live without the knowledge of GOD:
says the Teacher.
Everything is meaningless.”
What do people gain from all their labours at which they toil
under the sun?
Generations come and generations go,
but the earth remains forever…
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
Solomon adds: “It’s like chasing after the wind”—trying to find meaning in life without God.
Solomon and St Augustine were right.
So where is the problem?
Warren Wiersbe, in his book, Be Daring, wrote, “In 1973, Dr. Karl Menninger, one of the world’s leading psychiatrists, published a startling book, Whatever Became of Sin? He pointed out that the very word sin had gradually dropped out of our vocabulary, as he puts it, ‘the word, along with the notion.’ We talk about mistakes, weaknesses, inherited tendencies, faults, and even errors; but we do not face up to the fact of sin.”
The Bible teaches us the fundamental problem is sin. The problem is in us.
What or who is the solution?
God understood mankind’s greatest problem was sin. And so He sent us a Saviour. He did not send an educator, businessman, or statesman to the planet. God sent us a Saviour. Unless we realize and acknowledge our sin and wretchedness, that we are poor in spirit, we will never look to a Saviour.
The lyrics of one of my favourite songs says,
“How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb…
Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven”
This void that Grace and Henry speak about in the movie, and are troubled over, is met in Christ.
None of us attains the glory of God.
Not one of us reflects the perfect character of Christ.
Not one of us can touch the stars.

Seriously people ??
Hii Everyone!! I’m Rajeshwari Soujanya and I’m a law student. To describe myself as a brief, I’m the kind of person who is so expressive in the form of writing and I feel things in a different way and I think in a broad sense. In this article, I want to convey about people and how I understand them. To be frank I feel so pity about some people who are not so open-minded and who carry feelings such as jealousness and who talk about people behind their backs and not being kind and who be so selfish. I wonder why people are like this, why can’t they be free within themselves and why can’t they think in a positive way. Most of the people who I come across don’t think about themselves and they are just depending on the opinion of others and they are not having their own perspective and just blindly following other people in deciding upon some things. If a person says something about a person in a bad way, I really don’t understand why people who be beside him and who are close will assume in the same way and a question pops up in my mind, why??. I feel like people need to change their own thinking and I’m not saying and judging all people are like that but just expressing my point of view. One more thing that I dislike the most is ego, I really don’t understand why this always comes in between before doing something, such as if a person wants to text something to the person who he likes and before doing it he thinks of himself like why should I go first?? This creates a huge problem and leads to some other way and later we come up to a conclusion, why didn’t I do it before. What is the point of realizing again?? I just want to suggest is, do what feels right and follow what your heart says, and don’t procrastinate with your thoughts, the more you delay the more you are wasting your time in your life. I have seen many people like that, they just feel in a different way and they always want other people to come forward instead of themselves making a step forward. If everyone starts thinking in this way then nothing is going to happen in life. The next thing which I dislike the most is backbitching. God!! Why do people talk behind others and make comments ?? Why can’t they mind their own business?? I really feel what is the point of blaming a person and what is the point of pointing out at someone. Why can’t they lead their own lives properly without interference in other lives?? Before pointing out someone we need to see who we are first and we need to see what if I’m at his place and in what way I feel when someone does like that. When we see in this way we will come to know and we realize a lot. This is what I feel about some people and this is what I wanted to convey. Thank you.

Advertisements & Scientific Literacy
By: Tausif Ahmed Sayed
Science is not just a subject. It is also about how a person thinks and interacts with others and perceives nature. Scientific literacy is a systematic process of questioning, analyzing, observing, and drawing conclusions on the findings. If a person is scientifically literate, he/she will first develop the question and then try to find the answer by analyzing, testing, observing, or asking field experts. He/She will try to collect all the evidence and based on the evidence, he/she will conclude.
Advertisements are important to sell any product to the consumer. But today we see many advertisements which are least scientifically proven and more a marketing gimmick. Many products claim that they are 100% herbal, 0% alcohol, 0% chemicals, healthy food, fairness cream, hair growing/anti-dandruff oil/shampoo, and so on. Most of the time advertisements that companies show are different from that of the actual products. I have taken 2 examples to explain how scientific literacy plays an important role in determining which product is good or bad for a consumer.
Example 1: Fairness Cream
The company says, become fair in just 14 days! If so then they have to shut their companies once everyone becomes fair after 14 days. People should understand that no fairness cream can change the face color. The color of our body is because of melanin pigment. Melanin is a natural skin pigment, the more melanin the body produces the darker skin gets. Fairness chemicals just reduce the production of melanin pigment for a limited time. Once a person stops using fairness cream, his/her body produces the same amount of melanin before using fairness cream and hence skin color goes back to its original color. That means you continue using the fairness cream until you never become fair.
Example 2: Non-Alcoholic Beverages
The second example is about non-alcoholic beverages. The advertisement says non-alcoholic beer contains 0.0% alcohol but based on the manufacturing process, non-alcoholic beer is made by distillation of alcoholic beers. All the alcohol is evaporated retaining the same taste like beer. During this process, a small amount of alcohol remains in the system. Patients who are under alcoholic de-addiction treatment or those who are having liver problems think that it is free from alcohol so it is ok to consume but it does affect the liver in the long run. As per the FDA, non-alcoholic beer can be labeled if beer bottles have detectable alcohol of around <0.5%. As per the FDC data, 100ml of non-alcoholic beverages have around 0.3g of alcohol. That's the reason scientific literacy plays an important role in the selection of market products.
Scientific literacy is a very important factor in deciding the purchasing of any product available in the market. Scientific literacy is built by questioning and finding answers through testing, analyzing, or simply asking the experts. A scientifically literate person thinks, observes, or asks for proof before believing. Scientific literacy helps to decide on which product is good or bad for health. Whether to invest in beauty products, buying non-alcoholic drinks, or any other product you see on TV/Smartphone. A scientifically literate person first checks the nutritional value, health benefits, major side effects involved, how the product is made (manufacturing process), and ingredients before buying the packaged foods/products after watching the advertisements. No, a scientific literate person doesn't need a lab to test every product but he/she has a mind to think and decide based on the available facts and data.

Perks of making a perfect circle
The early morning rays reflected on the window pane with a beautiful pattern entwined on the walls; the songs emitted from the radio struck its chord with Amma’s curse words to force myself out of the thick blanket during this winter season. I do not belong to the league of early risers but the cliché threatening from every household which includes the pouring of a bucket of water or getting thrashed or slapped can be unbearable, sometimes.
Every weekend is the sole reason for sleeping like a sloth; we do not have any major commitments early in the morning, probably. The possibility of entering into the kitchen is very less compared to the working days and spending lot of time in the kitchen doors is only devoted for that one single wow factor – food. Keeping my hands on the frying pan and the chapatti roller often triggers the rolling of eyeballs from my parents. The strict disciplinary actions that follow after every mishap conducted in the kitchen calls for my attention towards the easiest tasks that I can contribute. Dosa became my partner in crime for making it easy and all I had to do was to use the batter that was prepared previous night.
According to an experienced chef or anyone who knows the marrow of working in the kitchen, the art of making dosa is a simple yet prodigal process. The “simple” element stays with the making of dosa batter; it is not mandatory to take it to the top until the next day arrives and there would be someone who can take the “prodigal” factor which is quite exciting. The dosa making procedure involve the quintessential realm of art and a bit of mathematics including the shapes involved in its making. Art always have the power to make the simplest things count and how many of you have ever wondered it can be connected to the world of recipes and taste? I am mastered in the prodigal aspect of dosa making and it has been very comfortable for me as I only need to take the batter and circle it on the hot pan or the inevitable “dosakkallu”.
It takes a minute of thought to jump on to the conclusion about finding the perfect circle and thereby devising the tastiest dosa. This has been one of the most anticipated outcomes, even better than determining whether a movie is a blockbuster or a flop after watching its first day show. The end results of attaining perfection often ends up in two ways: a pat on the shoulders for a good work in the middle and an even harder pat, that subsequently gets transformed into a slap, on the head for making it even tiresome or creating a ruckus with its shape. I experienced both the sides of the coin and it is never easy to build up on other’s expectations; it totally depends upon the person who holds the bowl of batter.
The mystery of forming masala dosa is still haunting me for no reason. Cooking a plain dosa has always been an icing on the cake. When I found out that there are a 100 other varieties for the medium-sized round emotion, made out of rice flour, it gave me ideas of providing the best cuisine to the people by running a dosa centre in the middle of a junction. But as I am not an aspiring entrepreneur and have only specialised in the making of plain dosa, I left them to fate. I remember that shameful day where my uncle adjudged my dosa and gave an unhealthy comparison to that of Sri Lanka’s political map. The above-mentioned incident was humiliating not because he made that statement for the dosa but the interference of a country that had nothing to do with the innocence of a college student in making one out of the dosakkallu.
Anyone can make it; the determinants of having a stern wrist and the mental calculation of how the dosa should end up on the pan, lies in our hands. This has given me immense confidence in producing one of the best dishes that has ever evolved from the Indian kitchens. But one thing that I am clueless is when I would jump out from this labyrinth of creating a conical masala dosa!

The Boy in the Kitchen
Seeing a boy cooking in the kitchen receives a varied reactions, glorification to subtle nods to shaming. Why, you may think. Let’s take a look.
The usual scene in a middle class Indian family’s kitchen is the mother cooking for the whole family. Same was mine. I grew up watching my mom cook us meals all through the day.
May be the dynamics and multi tasking, or the endless variations and diversity of cuisines and definitely the taste of good food attracted me to cooking. Before realising that it’s a life tool for future, I delved into the wonderful world inside my kitchen. My mom lead my way.
It was no surprise that Masterchef was one of my favorite shows. With limited resources, as internet was not available to me then, I conducted experiments with ingredients with a realistic win to lose ratio. Even when the dish was ruined sometimes, I felt a sense of wholesomeness in cooking. I found myself in the kitchen, with or without my mom, whenever I got free time.
My cooking pursuit was not a cake walk. Sooner or later I realized the bias existing in the Indian kitchens. Kitchen in homes were traditionally labelled as women’s spaces, and strange land to men. Cooking for the family was the duty of the females only. And it’s an obligation for girls to learn cooking.
While making an omelette or Maggi noodles by boys is laureled while a girl who do the same invites wrinkled foreheads and judging stares, save the “who will marry you” talks. Cooking is a mandatory trait for the wives and only women has to cook for the family. Contrarily, professional male chefs are more in number than the female counterparts. Don’t you see the double standards?
Coming back to me, relatives and visitors judged me for cooking. Some praised me, said the ‘daughter of my mom’. But the majority left with scorns and concerns to place me from spoons to sports. I realized that a man who cooks at home is considered less manly and cooking, a feminine trait. That’s so flawed!
At first I felt so infuriated. At some point of time, I tried to hide my passion for cooking. Young me were clueless about the rules of patriarchy in kitchens and the traditional gender roles. Luckily I grew out of it. Now I understand that kitchen is and must be a genderless space.
And no passion is limited to someone’s gender. It’s a good thing that such notions are changing slowly but we’ve a long way to go and completely erase such outdated notions. Now, I proudly says that I love to cook.
Regarding cooking, it’s a life skill that can be learnt by everyone regardless of gender. Enticing your taste buds with your own effort is a good thing. There will be people who don’t take an interest in cooking and that’s ok. People are free to choose and it’s their life. Let’s not judge others.
In this era, a boy in the kitchen is not an unusual but a normal thing. No praises and complaints needed. Just savour the food he makes.

"I should take a chance! I should talk with her". Aly decided to help Mia, overcoming her 'fear of life'.
Mia has been going through a very tough phase of her life. Even though brought up in an orphanage, she never felt that she was an orphan.
Her warden was her everything: Mother, Friend, teacher, support and guide. She used to share all her emotions with her warden. But now, she is going to lose her companion soon. As, the warden has been diagnosed with stage-4 cancer and she had only a few days left.
When Mia got to know this, her world shattered. She is going to lose her only companion for 20 years. Mia, an introvert, recently started to write down her feelings in a diary. Unknowingly, one day Aly (classmate) read her diary and felt her emotions. He could connect to her. He decided to console her and send her a message. As he couldn't muster courage to face her.
Above all, I want to apologize for reading your personal diary. I swear, it was unintentional. I hope you will try to forgive me. After reading your diary, I realised that introverts are not arrogant but kinda brave. They manage to hide so much behind their smile and 'I don't care' attitude. I had thought that you were an arrogant girl, but I was so wrong. My perspective about you has changed. And I think that you should change your perspective on life too.
Your personal experiences have made you not to trust neither in yourself nor others, which is absolutely correct. However, 'you are not defined by the way you have been treated'. You have all the rights to be happy and that is what matters the most. You have to move forward. You have to realise that your life is not confined to your past experiences.
You have to realise that life is as big as the universe. It is not necessary that the past will repeat again. Do what gives you peace of mind and pleasure. Because life is not only full of suffering, but also filled with hope and positivity.
Similarly, let your warden aunty go happily and peacefully from this world. She should not have a burden on her heart thinking she is leaving you alone in this entire world! Make as many good memories you can with her, so that you will remember them after she's gone. You don't have to regret in the future that you wasted precious time weeping. You can remember her with a smile on your face and not tears. Above all, she can really 'rest in peace'.
I know it is very difficult to make friends or trust anybody, but you have to give it a try. Everybody deserves a true friend and so do you. I would like to be a small part of your life. I don't want to take aunty's place but rather make my own place in your life. I will always be there for you- as your true friend.
Aly pre-read the message. However, instead of sending it, he cleared the message. Maybe, he didn't have the confidence and courage. Aly never felt a strong connection with his friends. So, he too didn't have any true friends. When he himself knows how difficult it is to trust others again, he didn't want to expect the same from her. Afterall, more than anybody else, it is the 'backspace' button that knows everything.

“Here’s my feeling: For everyone, men, and women, it’s important to be a feminist. It’s important to have female characters. It’s wonderful for women to mentor other women, but it’s just as important for women to mentor men and vice-versa.” — Mindy Kaling
GENDER EQUALITY AND WOMEN N EMPOWERMENT HAVE BEEN A ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THIS MACRRONIC NATURE. PRESENT TIME HAS BEEN AN SUPERIORITY FOR WOMEN WHICH HAS to lead to NEGATIVISM. WHAT IS EXACTLY WOMEN EMPOWERMENT? Women's empowerment is the process of empowering women. It may be defined in several ways, including accepting women's viewpoints or making an effort to seek them, raising the status of women through education, awareness, literacy, and training. We all know this stuff but nowadays this has been a threat to the outer world. Women say about equality and empowerment but according to me true women who possess empowerment will equalize the gender. Being a feminist doesn’t mean being a woman, it runs under every skin without any gender difference. In consonance with my view, women with true power will understand true equality which not only possesses in standing and raising a woman with equal training as men but equalizing the standard by educating them to admire the rightfulness in respect of gender to support what is right, sympathetic towards this time with the correct amount of knowledge. Women mean the world organization of mothers of all nations. A mother doesn’t differentiate between a child in respect of gender, A true woman would inhale this possession. Women is another, sister, fighter, protector, lover, friend, instructor, warrior. Women with true potentiality can conquer the whole world with the kindness. Empowering is an art through which one can withdraw one self ablity and rise high up like a true massive sun in front of earth but,at the same time be stars of the galxy.
In conclusion with women will raise and shine to the wrongful deeds done by this generation, will bring out the truth concerning caste, creed, religion, gender. Will support every aspect of human nature with its true potentiality because a true woman is boundless after all and isn’t tolerant but fireless.

You may ask masturbation is healthy "doctor says".but they are addicted to it.After completing work came to the room they don't sleep so just masturbate it .after masturbation they feel tired and sleeping. They doing all the day. And of course this is not the only reason they masturbate they are addicted to porn . Due to lack of sleep,not a healthy diet,and masturbation they lose their strength.finaly they have facing partial paralyse on their body. I have the question what make the youth to addict with porn and drugs . No parental guidance, smart phone usage with un restrictions causes major role. So eat healthy foods and do exercise daily do yoga for well being .sleep regularly at least 6 hours 10.00 P.M to 4.00 A.M compulsory. Spending time with your family often go to the temple.think positive don't addicted to bad habits. EVERYTHING HAS ITS OWN LIMIT SO DON'T CROSS THE LIMIT

The Face of The FISH
Do fish have faces? In one sense, the question is trivial. A 10-year-old would likely answer yes: after all, a fish has eyes, a mouth, and what can pass as a snout. It seems to have all the essentials of a face. But there are far-reaching consequences to this answer, and it needs to be considered carefully. Whether we perceive an animal to have what the existential philosopher Emmanuel in 1961 called ‘the face of the Other’ is crucial in determining the moral status we grant it. By ‘face’, Levi meant a ‘living presence’, that is, a kind of expression of a person. Faces and morality, it seems, are intimately bound up with one another.
The child’s answer notwithstanding, fish are seldom if ever, assigned faces in this manner. Why? Put more broadly, what influences whether we do, or don’t, see ‘the face of the other’ in an animal?
So: do fish have faces? The ‘face of the other’ in an animal increases the likelihood that we will have a special relationship to that animal, which gives it status in our moral community. Fish have a challenging upstream swim to achieve this relationship. They’re seldom considered cute, certainly not cuddly, and don’t seem to act at all like us. Hence, they lack many subliminal characteristics that assist, say, dogs in achieving the ‘face of the other’ so easily: our own human predispositions make it much more likely that we’ll find the ‘living presence’ in our oldest friends.

Let's start with my title “why Corona” after seeing this first thing, you will find little confusing and frustrating I believe so, but during this lockdown, I am not going to bore with the preventive measure and telling the history and counting how many dead shot done by corona.
Corona has changed our lives in such a way and made this T-20 year unforgettable for everyone. I want to bring your attention to this thing. Can you think for a moment that why a virus is so enthusiastic about getting into the human body? Why it is so is this is the attraction of corona towards people. Is corona try to show any kind of love towards us. (Kya corona ki Dunia me hmare gane ki lines chl rahi i.e Aj kl tere mere pyar ke charche hain jubaan pr ki jagah aj kl COVID-19 ke charche hain jubaan pr sabko malum hai aur sabko khabar ho gayi).kyun khabar to mili hi hogi apko???
This time I have done something new, and I have a task for you to find yourself in my below-written blog.
Look how Corona make fun of we peoples during this lockdown Era.
- On one side, people are self-responsible for other peoples who get die. And on the other side, people unite together to fight with corona. (you have seen when our P.M. Modi has announced to clap for some min. then crores of people had supported him.)
- For the people working in the private sector hardly get one time
meal and some of them died due to lack of meal, other side government sector working people enjoying the joy of life during this lockdown.
- A few months ago, people were taunting that why many girls cover their face with scalf all the time now, they have got an answer without any discussion.
- You know very well that we have a history of many granths in
number of holy books, and there was a brief discussion about
many “yug” can you answer me? Is it Kalyug? (these three months lockdown).
- From our childhood we are learning that we should wash our hands, clean ourselves daily always maintain hygiene otherwise viruses and bacteria can cause several diseases, for this, we have paid lots of money in school, but today without a penny we have learned all those rules how to maintain hygiene and the exciting thing is that people are now following these rules.
- Now let's talk about modern children and students. They always grading and commenting on their mother whatever she cooked, they had not been paying any respect and value to their mother's food, but now they realize the importance of their food and the pain of separation from their parents. I think no one could bring this behavior. (but this lockdown did it).
- Those who felt Ramayan is boring now they depend on it for their time pass. Those elderly people who believed that mobile games are bad for students now they are playing with their children guess what(yes, u re right LUDO KING).
- Let's talk about some educational topics. Our scientists and many organization WHO have been trying to reduce the problem of pollution, global warming, ozone layer depletion from the past year but did not get successful. But whatever this three-month lockdown has done that could not be done by anyone. You can explore the web to see the correct details.
- Those young peoples and scientist who wanted to do something for their nation and could not able to do anything they have found lots of topics and works where they can show their talent and use their energy to do something great for their nation.
- NOW we come towards people who did not feel any changes during the lockdown, and before lockdown, they are constant in their behavior. In mathematics, they are known as those people who are running their life with constant behavior. They have their world in itself where no corona can harm….
I hope you can find yourself in the above discussion. Would you please read this short conclusion? I believe you will love to read this?
Guys, do you find an interesting thing about what we have discussed earlier? I will explain to you, whatever is going on or whatever has been done is only to change our thinking during this lockdown. I will explain why?? Pay your attention to this statement “whatever we are doing is just the reflection of our thoughts and thinking “. The main thing is our actions and way of our living drastically changed in past few months. If u believe my above statement then this implies that our thinking has also got changed.Is Corona tries to change our thinking isn’t it??
During this, people are realizing their mistake. Is nature trying to show our mistake in virtual mirror imagine that it is like we are watching a show in our home and everyone is watching the same show what is that, yeah (the madness of people)how we have been rudely destroying our nature from the past year and how much we are selfish before?
(I elaborate u how it looks in real, when a stranger try to get closer to a newly born baby then mother will warn you but if you try to harm its babies then the mother will attack the stranger )correlate mother as our nature and babies are like environment and surrounding , and we are stranger.
My last but not least, jab- jab kalyug aya hai tab tab hmne kisi insan me bhagwan ko paya hai,who will protect us from disaster ex. Jab prithvi pr rakshash aur danao aye to bhagwan shri Krishna janm liye, jab sone ki chidiya kahe jane wale Bharat pr britisher kbja kiye to Mahatma Gandhi aye, kya issi tarah iss mahamari se bachane ke liye Mr Narendra modi aye hain, jo bhi ho ek bat to hai jo 120 crore people ka netritwa kr sakta hai aur jisko 120 Crore people support karti hai, aur vishwas krti hai to ye kehna galat nahi hoga ki sach me ye unhi mahapuruso me se ek hain,aur waise bhi patthar ko bhagwan banane wale bhi to hm hain, modi to phir bhi Insaan hai((kyun bhul gaye jab hm balu ke dher se patthr nikal kr hm shankar bhagwan mante the))……..(HOPE YOU ENJOY TO READ THIS IF YOU LIKE PLEASE SHARE)😊😊

Do You Know Your Money is Shrinking by More Than 5% Every Year?
Ever heard your parents or grandparents saying that they used to watch movies for a mere 2 rupees? Or maybe you've heard about their first car which they bought for the price of almost 40000 rupees. Imagine if we have the same sorts of prices, even today, how comfortable and luxurious our life could be. Sorry to break your fantasy, but no, it's not feasible anymore. But ever wondered why did this happen? Or, if there is any way to prevent this in the future, let us discuss this today.
First, tell me if you already know that your savings - which you believe is a way to secure your future - is shrinking by more than 5% every year? And due to the power of compounding, this severely harms your wealth if it happens continuously for a few years. The money you are keeping aside to buy a house or maybe for the higher education of your children - might not prove enough when that time eventually arrives. Yeah, it's true, all thanks to the phenomenon called "inflation." And it is the very reason we witness the rising prices.
Inflation is a complex subject, but to put it simply, we can define it as a rise in the prices of commodities or/and a fall in purchasing power of a particular currency. But thank god we don't need to learn the whole theory of this economic event to protect our money from erosion. As ordinary people, we don't need to spend our time fathoming about the factors and functioning of inflation. Instead, we need to endure its existence and proactively act toward safeguarding our money.
Inflation loves to eat our hard-earned money, and the only way to stop this - is to invest it. But the question arises - where to invest? Follow a simple rule: invest in assets from where you can generate a return rate higher than the inflation rate. But note that a lucrative higher rate of return comes along with the uncertain risks too. To better tackle inflation, we need to identify asset classes according to the return rate they offer and the risk appetite we own. For instance, a fixed deposit is widely considered an excellent way for investing as it's safe and promises zero risks to the capital. However, it can prove inadequate to fight inflation as it offers returns identical to inflation rates.
To help you with this enormous decision of investing your money, let me briefly describe some of the most beneficial ways.
- Gold:- Gold proved an excellent hedge against inflation as it provided a 12% CAGR in the last five years, and it's the safest option as its value doesn't erode even in times of economic crisis or recession.
- Fixed Deposits:- As stated earlier, fixed deposits are the safer option for investing, and it also provides a cover against inflation, but it can prove inadequate as it currently offers returns identical to inflation rates, which means you won't be getting any significant gain on your capital.
- Mutual Funds:- Mutual funds are professionally managed funds. These funds succeeded in providing returns of 15% to 18% in the last few years. If compared to fixed deposits, they give higher returns but possess significant risks too. However, with the right choice of a mutual fund, like a balanced fund between equity and debt, we can considerably minimize the risk.
- Stocks:- These assets provide the highest returns than any other investment. But it possesses the most unusual risks too. If done without any prior knowledge of its basics, you can even lose your whole capital. However, if you learn about the fundamentals, analytics, and strategies, you can unquestionably generate a return of 20% to 30% per annum.
- Cryptocurrency:- Cryptos are getting popular with each passing day as they're offering massive gains, but one should be very careful before investing in this new phenomenon. It involves plenty of risks, and it is still not trusted universally by authorities worldwide which could even lead to its prohibition.
We should feel fortunate enough to be living in an age like this where we can educate ourselves to protect and grow our money without even stepping out of the house. All we need to do is stepping out of our comfort zone and work for a better future by shielding our money from this demon termed inflation.
