Whatever may be your state of mind, you can learn and get something out of each day in your life. I’m sure all of you must have come across phases in life which have enlightened you and changed the way you look at situations and people.

Human life is, in fact, full of events and circumstances which make you wiser. Here are some of the lessons life teaches us. Some of these lessons are so simple that you can notice them in your everyday life. If you haven’t noticed them already, it’s time you start taking notice.

  1. The best thing to learn is to learn how to learn

One of the biggest mistakes we make in life is the way we approach education. We start learning new concepts without even learning how to actually learn. The sad thing about the education system today is that students are taught what to learn and not how to learn. This is a major loophole in the current education system which needs to be fixed for the prosperity of the world.

  1. Things are not as tough as they seem

You may often feel that life is not easy.  There are times when you are overwhelmed by the events and things unfolding around you. It may seem to you that things are getting difficult and you are not strong enough to deal with them. But, eventually, you start realizing that things are not as hard as they seem in the beginning.

  1. Your hobbies are not a waste of time

You are a unique person and you have certain things that you love doing which you called hobbies. It is good to have hobbies. They play a role in the growth and development of an individual.

If you observe the stereotypical way out society thinks, you will find that hobbies are labeled as acceptable and unacceptable. The acceptable ones are those which has something to do with art or literature. Anything else is a waste of time.

This is what is taught to us during our childhood days. As we grow up, we realize that those hobbies that were thought to be a waste of time were actually the things that made you happy. And, there is nothing more important than the things that make you truly happy.

My hobby is to collect information about any topic and make a list out of it. I love doing that. The recent list I have made is that of the best mobile phones under 25000 you can find in India. This list of best mobile phones under 25000 can help you figure out which phones suit your needs and buy it.

  1. The best things in life are free

The world is driven by riches. Flashy cars and fancy houses are what most people dream of and chase after. All these things come with a huge price tag which people pay. The question here is – do these things bring any happiness? Are they the best things in life. No, they are not. The best things in life are not cars and houses or any other material things. The best things in life are the moments you spend with your loved ones, the places you see, the fresh air you breathe, the conversation with friends and the feeling of being loved. All these are the best things in life and they come without a price tag.

I really hope you found this post useful and informative. Do you have any queries or suggestions related to this post? If you have any, feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below. I will try and answer all your questions and take your feedback into consideration.

The Advancement In Education System

The importance and impact of higher education have always been at its acme. It is often admitted the higher the qualifications, the higher the opportunities. So most of our time elapsed in devising new methods to accelerate the process of acquiring knowledge and education in order to increase the productivity of whatever we do. The one and only purpose of education is to help you develop your mind logically and critically which will ultimately enable you to take the right decision.

After the advent of the internet, the ambit of educational services skyrocketed like anything. The clan of people dedicated to giving and receiving an education is the most benefited ones. We are the generation who have very closely observed the transition and the way the system morphed into a whole new thing. Today we can learn anything we crave for without going out or paying much. Not only the education system has been changed but also the working processes in the offices and companies.

The rise of the internet made it even easier today. I can now make use of online binomial distribution calculator to plot the graphs I require for my presentations. The online binomial distribution calculator has made the lives of many students and employees a cakewalk. We now don’t need to go anywhere for help. All we need is a device that is obviously connected to the internet.

adults-brainstorming-desk-1595385

The best part of the internet is that you don’t need to have a very in-depth knowledge of it. You just need to master the basics and can make it serve you in many ways.

The advancement in technology has dragged us out of the conventional grueling style of education where we were constantly under the pressure of being left out. The gap between the teachers and students has been reduced to zero after this advancement.

There is one thing we can never avoid no matter how hard we try and that is the criticism. There are people who still believe in the conventional styles of education where they had to be present physically in order to acquire any shot of knowledge or skill. They think that the use of technologies in education sucks out the human touch which I find absolutely agreeable but we need to accept the changes that are taking place. The only way to stop worrying about the negative aspects is to start appreciating the pros that come glued to it. No statue is going to be made in the name of the critic. The fact that we are growing and developing in all aspects is the one that needs to be kept in mind leaving out the rest.

I personally consider this advancement in the education system which still is growing to be the best way to make ourselves at home with the learning processes. This not only saves your time but efficiency and productivity also seem to experience a surge.

Is online dating safe?

What is the best way to find a date today? Is it not online dating? Yes, it is. Never before has been a time when you could connect with anyone from any part of the world in a matter of seconds. The internet has revolutionized the way we find and meet new people. There are numerous dating platforms on the internet today where you can find people to date and start a relationship.

While it is really easy to find a date online, there are certain things that you need to do with extreme caution when dating someone online. In this post, I have explained the risks of internet dating and the precautionary measures you need to take while dating online.

1. Join a dating site you trust

There are plenty of dating sites today. Some of these are free while others have some payment options for using their services. The thing that you need to be concerned for is your security when using these sites. Not all dating sites are genuine. Some are nothing more than scam. You have to do some research and find out which dating sites are trustworthy before you start using them. There is nothing more important than your privacy. Always keep this is in mind when dating online.

2. Beware of dating scams

adult-blond-blur-1509426

Before you start trusting a person on a dating site be certain that you are not falling into a scam trap. There are thousands of scammers on dating sites. Sometimes, even the best dating sites are not able to filter them. This is the reason why you shouldn’t trust someone easily on dating platforms. I tell you this because I have a friend of mine who had been a victim of dating scam. He joined a sugar mummy dating site and got potential matches immediately. After a week of interaction with a lady who claimed to be rich, he got the opportunity to meet her in person. He was robbed.

4. Don’t let looks deceive you

When you go through the profiles of people on dating platforms, you will find a lot of good looking faces. Do not make the mistake of believing that these profiles to be genuine. It is a common practice on dating sites to use fake pictures and identities. You have to be really careful when getting in touch with someone you come to know online. It is good to do some research about the identity of the person and find out if these persons have their profiles on the major social networking sites.

5. Do not share personal details with anyone

Dating on the internet can sometimes make you believe that the person you are interacting has good intentions. The person may ask for your address. Do not make the mistake of sharing your address or any further contact details unless you get to know the person for real. Only you are responsible for your safety on dating sites. Always remember this.

Conclusion

These were some of the risks and precautionary measures for online dating. It doesn’t matter if you are looking for a casual date with someone or you are looking for a sugar mummy dating site, make a commitment to yourself to stay safe.

Humanity Makes Us Human

Is there any morality left in us? Do we have enough humanity left in us to at least make sure that we treat our fellow humans with the same dignity and honor like the way we expect for ourselves? I really see humans on the verge of vulnerability.

When are we going to realize our purpose for being sent on the planet with the body that is way more capable of performing better tasks than any other breathing creature coexisting on the planet? our cold attitude towards others has made us so indifferent in terms of our behavior and performances that we leave even our aging parent in the lurch.

I remember an incident that when I was coming out after attending my MBA coaching classes and was busy with the scorecards which asked to convert GRE to GMAT. I  saw a beggar eating out of the garbage. This pathetic view of the beggar eating from the garbage made me bleed inside. I chose not to convert GRE to GMAT at that instant of time and help the beggar with some food. A small act of benevolence can really fetch a smile on somebody’s face which is sure to fetch a surge of happiness and satisfaction on your face too.

The people are meant to be loved irrespective of their casts, color, regions, religions, and sex. We as a human should understand another human and sympathize with them if they ever go through any loss or agony. A human we are supposed to be moved by the tears of others and should have sympathy if we ever get across anybody wallowing in pain.

The reason behind jotting down this article is my heart that bleeds every time I see someone in distress. I am too human to hate anyone and feel their pain as my own.

charity-children-desert-36785

The omnipotent and omnipresent created us without any name and gave almost the same body.  It’s our action that decides whether we deserve to be born with a human body or not.

Knowing others is intelligence and knowing yourselves is wisdom. So the sole purpose of a human is to understand others and devise methods to deal with them in all aspects. We should help and assess fellow humans.

True human not only sees the pain of like creatures but also the pain of the creatures that coexist with them in the same environment.

We, humans, are considered to be a gregarious living clan that shows adaptability to almost all shots of the environment and hence falls on the top of the animal kingdom.

So if we still consider ourselves humans where it perfectly reconciles with the job description as stated above, it becomes our responsibility to take care of everyone around us to the best of our capabilities.

How can’t we stay silent when we see the people suffering? The recent news that depicts the pathetic condition of the denizens of Syria who has been suffering excruciating pain for the last six years is rather nauseating and should be condemned.

How being human makes you act like an animal?  How can we kill our own people and burn innocent children just to prove our might to the world for no valid reason? When will these ruthless creatures stop being a smudge in the name of humans?

We all need to rise in unison to combat this inhumanity to save all of us from the more we are being jostled into. This is the time when we need to rise against the evils that are constantly eating up humanity, making the globe is just a piece of land.

My Insipid College Life

My initial days of college have been rather excruciating where I struggled almost every single day to find myself a place in the good books of my teachers and failed terribly. I was then pursuing an undergraduate in computer science and had to rack my brain over mind-numbing programmings and codings. Most of my time elapsed in nailing these hardcore subjects and I could hardly get any time for self-development.

I could never get spare time to work on myself and enjoy myself. The schedule used to be so hectic that I lost myself among the dusty books and scattered bare pages. I barely could read a book apart from the core books that I was suggested for academic betterment. I pursued no hobbies, hardly went out to celebrate with friends and was rather conserved which could be perceived as an insipid life. The life that I lead was more of a monotonous and hectic schedule with no adventure in it.

On the other hand, my classmates had a completely different life that I longed for during my college days. They had stories to tell and regale people around them. They had anecdotes which never ended and perhaps a life that was being carried out either in the pretention or in ignorance. I indeed was materially and emotionally equipped but I always missed the life they were leading then.

I used to stay busy with the codings while my friends loitered around holding hands and skipping lectures and bunking classes. They used to hit the internet to socialize with the girls while I was busy looking for free online XLM to JSON converter on the internet.

The monotony that I suffered my entire college days was rather depressing and killed the carefree guy residing inside me. I now was more into flipping pages than scrolling down the Facebook profiles. I stalked teachers more than Facebook profiles.

adolescent-adult-blur-933964

And as far as my being good in studies is concerned, I indeed was a good student though I struggled with the hard to assimilate concepts.

But the rise of the internet made it a cakewalk for me and the likes. I now could go on the internet and look for free online XML to JSON converter just in case I ever found myself stuck with the dry runs on the pages.

Its good to be boring

I do regret being so conserved and introvert during my college days but it indeed bore me the fruit. I got placed in the world’s top IT Company that not only pays me well but also keeps my needs on the top of their lists. It’s good to be conservative sometimes as it unfolds the possibilities and prospects to proceed in life.

I know I have missed a lot while I was in the college but I will never regret attending the lectures instead of bunking classes and loitering aimlessly in the corridors with nothing but deep disappointment on their faces which still lingers.

I would suggest the readers sacrifice the transitory happiness and indulge yourself in the pursuits of eternity and invest in yourself accordingly.

Of rainbows and sunshine

There are times in life when you come across incidents which touch the deepest parts of your soul and make you a different person. One such incident happened to me on the 31st of December 2017. This was the time when I was in the final semester of my graduation.

Everyone in the hostel was in a party mood that night. It was the last day of the year and there was no reason not to celebrate that night. We were a bunch of crazy hostelers and there was no limit to the fun we were having.

While it was close to midnight and the world was ready to welcome the new year, there was a loud noise coming from the street. The noise seemed like the collision of vehicles. Just out of curiosity, we went out into the street to find out what was going on.

On reaching the spot where the commotion was happening, we saw a car turned upside down. There was a girl inside the car strapped to the seat belt. A few meters ahead, there were two teenagers lying beside a bike. People were trying to help them while they were crying in pain. The girl in the car was quiet. I couldn’t see her face.

Someone from the crowd came forward and tried to help her. It was then that I saw her face. It was Shreya. Shreya Jaiswal, my school time crush. She was one of the most beautiful girls I had seen. Seeing her in this condition was not easy. I moved ahead and offered to help.

Minutes later, I was inside the ambulance with her. I was there with her in the hospital. It was new year already. I had never had a new year event like that. I held her hand and kept looking at her face. She had the same baby face which made me fall in love with her in my school days. Only this time there were cuts on it.

Pieces of glass from the car dashboard had gotten into her face. I had the fear that her eyes got hurt. My fears came true when the doctors gave their reports after the initial first aid and examination. She had lost her eyesight.

I was in utter shock to know this. I couldn’t even think of the pain she would go through when she gets to realize that she has lost her vision. This was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life.

Days passed on. Her parents came and took her home. They thanked me for the help. I asked them if I could come to visit her sometimes. They said I could do that if she wanted to. I gave them my number and asked them to call me if there was something I could help them with.

A month later, I got a call from an unknown number. It was Shreya. She wanted to thank me personally. I went there and she was glad to know who I actually was.

After that, I started visiting her whenever I could. I would read books to her and share jokes to make her laugh. I even tried to convince her to learn braille. She listened to me and started taking classes. I helped her read internet articles by using a free online braille translator. This was how I was trying to be helpful to her.

cheerful-color-cute-207983

Through these meetings, I started realizing that Shreya was not just beautiful from the outside, she was beautiful from the inside too. There was soon a time when we couldn’t remain far from each other. I was falling in love with her once again.

I didn’t know what she felt for me then but she did say something that really touched my heart and made me hopeful. She said that I was the sunshine in her life. I just smiled and held her hand that day.

My life before her was not bad, but there was something that was missing. She was the missing piece from my life. She made me feel complete.

Between that day and this day, many things have happened. My life has changed in a good way. She has become a beautiful part of my life now. She has come like a rainbow into my life and made my life beautiful and I intend to be the sunshine of her life forever.

Basics To Improve Advanced Maths

We have been constantly observing a massive drop out rates in the colleges, especially in subjects that are tough and need more logics such as Mathematics and Physics. Subjects which are surcharged with logic and need Higher Order Thinking Skills often becomes the reason behind the intensifying dropout rates.

The transformation of physics into Quantum physics and of Math into advanced maths make the students perspire throughout the session. Math is considered to be the backbone of scientific subjects in which the numerical values decides the units.

Many students drop maths as a subject by the time they pass out of high schools because of its increase in the level of difficulty after a certain standard. The higher you go, the harder it gets. Advanced maths has always been a concern for students who opt for it as a major subject.

Educationalists and researchers are trying to evolve new methods and techniques to make maths and the related subjects fun for the assimilation to the students.

By becoming a bit liberal in terms of setting questions and use of calculators, they have successfully managed to decrease the dropout rates of mathematics student in the colleges and universities.

Besides this, researches are coming with techniques that mix education and technology to help the student in improving mathematical skills.

pexels-photo-267582

Nowadays, it is easier to study from freely available video lectures, lecture notes and textbooks. You can learn better from watching videos and making notes, based on your understanding and their teachings.

We can now study and learn mathematics online in an easy and understandable way. Many websites and the likes have been created to serve the same purpose of helping the students out and decrease the dropping out.

Here I share a few tips on how to improve maths without taking it as a nightmare.

Do all of the homework.

Taking homework as a choice will help you in improving and working on the areas you lag in. It’s indeed a way that students practice and master the concepts taught in class. Stay consistent and never miss doing your homework by making it a habit.

Your relationship with the teachers works too.

High school teachers have up to 60 students in a batch. It’s important to be recognised by the teacher. So, introduce yourself. Your teacher should know you as an interested student. Asking questions will go a long way in clearing your doubts pertaining to the topics. So never hesitate to ask questions.

Mastering basics will increase your grasping capacity.

What’s 8 times 9? To be successful, you need to be quick and sharp in the basics. Polishing your basics that undoubtedly include the multiplication tables, square and cube roots, calculations and so on. Practice deliberately if you find nailing it down.

Analysing and understanding the concepts will surely help

We live in a society where we need perfection in every aspect and we cannot afford to ignore our mistakes as students who desperately want to improve. Studying deeply with high order thinking skill will help us clear our concepts of the subjects. Analyse logically in order to get the most out of the sessions.

Surfing may help

We can use the internet to polish our knowledge by looking for websites and applications that are completely dedicated to the cause.

Instead of wasting time on social media, we can bring this wonderful invention of science to our benefits.
