India is a vast country with so many States, languages, castes, religions and cultures. With such diversities the country manages a billion plus people who live in villages, hills, seashores and urban areas. The country elects its representatives through political parties which are innumerable with all kinds of leaders. They are in general, experts in finding fault with the ruling parties.
As an individual, and a common man of this country I think that what the country has achieved in development since independence is enormous. We have to be proud of it. We have shown progress little or more in various fields. Think of it! In spite of innumerable problems – big and small – we could able to march on and show to the so-called developed world that ‘we can do it.’
Many may say the progress is not sufficient. I do agree, but with the diversity and democracy we have lots of limitations. To overcome these limitations and show progress in education, industry, export, health care, housing, art, culture, science and technology, space research is really a monumental task the successive democratic governments could achieve for all of us. Can anyone deny this fact?
People start comparing India with America or Europe or Australia. People should also know how many problems they face to show the world that they are developed! Poverty and hunger are present everywhere in the world including India - So also corruption and terrorism. There are projects and programs to tackle them and try to reduce the extent possible.
There are more people out there to criticize the governments, but they do not understand the difficulties faced by each and every ministry either in the Center or in the States. It is easy to allot money in annual budgets to various ministries.
But the money has to reach the appropriate place in appropriate time. Otherwise it is not possible to spend the money in time that is before the next year budget. The hurdles the governments face are enormous. No one realizes the complicated administrative system we adopt for spending government money. In spite of all these impediments our administrative machinery had and has played and playing an important role to make India great!
Therefore it is the duty of every citizen – literate and illiterate – to follow rules and cooperate with any government in power. Think of what we are not having?
We have everything available in our country (probably except honesty). We should develop an attitude of belonging to our nation. We all have a role to play in making our country great! This can be achieved simply by doing our duty sincerely with devotion. Let us start doing it. Our country and the people of our country will grow and progress and prosper.
1. You get what you spend your time doing.
2. Get feedback.
3. Make mistakes.
4. Only hire people who you would work for.
5. Make a change in the world.
6. Learn from the people around you.
7. Build a really good team.
8. Give the very best experience.
9. Care the most about it.
10. Social bonds are critical.
1. Ask yourself “What’s important?” Take a step back and think about what’s important to you. What do you really want to be doing, who do you want to spend your time with, what do you want to accomplish with your work? Make a short list of 4-5 things for your life, 4-5 people you want to spend time with, 4-5 things you’d like to accomplish at work.
2. Examine your commitments. A big part of the problem is that our lives are way too full. We can’t possibly do everything we have committed to doing, and we certainly can’t enjoy it if we’re trying to do everything. Accept that you can’t do everything, know that you want to do what’s important to you, and try to eliminate the commitments that aren’t as important.
3. Do less each day. Don’t fill your day up with things to do. You will end up rushing to do them all. If you normally try to do 7-10 things, do 5 important ones instead. This will give you time to do what you need to do, and not rush.
4. Leave space between tasks or appointments. Another mistake is trying to schedule things back-to-back. This leaves no cushion in case things take longer than we planned (which they always do), and it also gives us a feeling of being rushed and stressed throughout the day.
5. Eliminate as much as possible from your to-do list. You can’t do everything on your to-do list. Even if you could, more things will come up. As much as you can, simplify your to-do list down to the essentials.
6. Now, slow down and enjoy every task. Try to slow down and enjoy whatever you’re doing. Try to pay attention, instead of thinking about other things. Be in the moment. Enjoy the present.
1. Music and mood: Music can have either a positive or negative effect on our mood. It is partly related to memories, associations, and how much we like or dislike the music.
2. Food and mood: Studies have revealed that people who consume a large amount of olive oil have lower levels of depression. Also, salmon and walnuts (which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids) have mood-boosting properties. High-carbohydrate comfort foods stimulate the reward centre in the brain, and help to reduce stress levels.
3. Interactions with strangers and mood: Even brief interactions tend to have a positive effect on mood. This may be because we act cheerful – and that, in turn, affects how we feel.
4. Skepticism and mood: We are more skeptical of others’ intentions, and are more likely to catch them lying to us, when we’re in a negative frame of mind. In contrast, happy people tend to be overly trusting, optimistic, and blind to other peoples’ character flaws.
5. Exercise and mood: Numerous studies have confirmed that exercise can increase blood flow to the brain, help create new neurons, and stimulate the release of mood-regulating chemicals (specifically, dopamine and serotonin.)
6. Age and mood: As people age, they tend to focus more on the positives – which leads to higher levels of subjective happiness.
7. Intuition and mood: When we feel happy, we’re more likely to trust our gut reactions than we are when we’re feeling negative and down.
8. Weather and mood: Many peoples’ moods are significantly affected by weather. That is, we feel down and blah on cold, grey days … and energetic and happy on bright sunny days.
ACCEPTING CHANGE: Being able to deal effectively with the inevitability of change is essential if you are to survive. Learning is the key to dealing with change, whether in your personal circumstances – you are given a new job or a more global issue. The faster the world around you is changing the faster you need to learn in order to be able to keep up with it.

Almost every town/city is situated on either sides of a river – big or small. River provides mainly water for the inhabitants. In some rivers we find water in only some seasons. In others water flows all through the year. Such rivers are perennial in nature. River Seine in Paris, Thames in London, Tyne in New Castle, Ganga in Varanasi, Coovam in Chennai are good examples. In fact, human beings preferred to settle on the banks of these rivers. Most of our human civilization originated on either side of these great rivers. River water is not salty so it is suitable for drinking and irrigation. Some kind of fishes also lives in river water. Rivers do bring silt along and deposit on the river beds. River sand is in great demand nowadays for the huge construction industry. The origin of river water is rain or melting snow/ice from mountains. Generally rivers do not flow straight. They flow according to the slope and often take a zig zag direction touching various spots delivering water to this thirsty earth.
The flow of river water is checked by check dams built by men at various points so that they can tap the precious water for farming, industries and human needs. The topography of the land helps in establishing big or small dams. These dams discharge the impounded water whenever needed. The water in the river is partly used and the rest, unused ones reach the sea and become salty! As the water scarcity is mounting everywhere on earth, people try to impound it in dams and tanks preventing it to flow into the sea. Some big rivers are used for transportation. Small boats are used to go from one place to other carrying goods or crossing river. A cheap way of transport indeed! Swimming and bathing in river is a real joy for all. In festival seasons huge crowds go to river to bath and wash off their sins.
Rivers travel across States of Nations and also across Nations of the world.
Scarcity of water leads to larger disputes between States and Nations. Filing cases in courts leads to complications. If more water is available, then sharing becomes easy. At times, when water becomes limiting all kinds of problems arise. Each State or Nation fully utilize the water for their use and the rest is let out to others. This is quite normal. River water problems exist everywhere on earth. When flooding occurs, rivers overflow and water enters either side of the rivers and damage crops and human settlements. In order to cross the river, bridges are being constructed at various points. Road and rail bridges are generally constructed across rivers. Some of the bridges are really engineering marvels.
Thus rivers are essential for all living organisms. Some of the rivers are damaged by dumping trashes and industrial effluents. But in certain countries like UK and Singapore I witnessed clean rivers with clean water. So it is possible to have rivers of such standard everywhere on earth if human beings want.
1. Stop resisting change and see it as a constant in life.
2. Learn to enjoy, and value solitude.
3. Never forget that friendship is a gift, not a possession.
4. Things are rarely as bad as they seem at first.
5. Do your most important tasks first thing in the morning.
6. Smiling seems to help with most things!
7. Schedule margin into your life – as something unexpected will often change your plans.
8. QTIP: quit taking it personally.
9. Define what’s necessary; say no to the rest.
10. Take a deep breath and wait before responding. Don’t react, and say something you’ll regret.
1. Distract yourself. Let your mind wander and think about fun things you’ve planned; or watch a funny movie; or call up a friend.
2. Play your favorite music.
3. Try and balance out your terrible day by thinking of something that went really well recently.
4. Try and squeeze in time for exercise. The endorphins this releases will help to lift your mood.
5. Don’t isolate yourself. Research shows that we generally feel better if we spend time with others, rather than retreating and being on our own.
6. Try to maintain perspective. Ask yourself, “How much will this matter - a week, month or year from now?”
7. Try journaling. Many people find that just writing things down helps to drain away the negativity.
8. Go to bed early and try to fall asleep … And remember that tomorrow is another day.
A man asks a farmer near a field, “Sorry sir, would you mind if I crossed your field instead of going around it? You see, I have to catch the 4:23 train.”
The farmer says, “Sure, go right ahead. And if my bull sees you, you’ll even catch the 4:11 one.”
The farmer says, “Sure, go right ahead. And if my bull sees you, you’ll even catch the 4:11 one.”
“My wife suffers from a drinking problem.”
-“Oh is she an alcoholic?”
-“No, I am, but she’s the one who suffers.”
Doctor: Hello, did you come to see me with an eye problem?
Patient: Wow, yes, how can you tell?
Doctor: Because you came in through the window instead of the door.
