and music unite millions of us across our great
nation – India. They brought us together. India is a vast country with many
language speaking States and people following a number of religions, variety of
cultures such as food, dresses, music, dance, caste, colour and what not! They
have added fragrance to Indian culture. Such diversity brought unity among us.
Every State has special festivals, large number of temples, churches, mosques
and many other religious places. For anyone who comes to India from any other
country, India looks as a paradise. Such variety in a single country (India),
cannot be seen anywhere else. But we Indians fail to look at our own beautiful
culture, people and places.
From Himalaya to Kanyakumari we find beautiful ancient
architectural monuments. Taj Mahal, Puri, Charminar, Mysuru Palace, Thanjavur
Big Temple, Guruvayur temple in Kerala, and many more places attract the
attention of Indians nowadays. Appreciating one’s own culture and learn about it
is necessary to understand the historic achievements of our ancestors.
Today everything is modern and technology has transformed
our way of life and life-style. The country has seen skyscrapers in the form of
apartments to provide shelter to millions of Indians. These were not there some
years ago. The apartment culture has crept into India of late. With all these
developments, pollution, life style diseases, isolated life and mental
disorders have affected the Indian population to a great extent.
A free country indeed! Freedom for everyone! So governance
becomes very difficult. There are lots of laws to control the unwanted
activities of people. But still we do find all sorts of illegal activities
happening all over India. We, the people of India tolerate and move on.
Tolerance has become the way of life today. In fact, there is no place for

word, put it down.
3.Finish what you’re writing. Whatever you have
to do to finish it, finish it.
4.Put it aside. Read it pretending you’ve never
read it before. Show it to friends whose opinion you respect and who like the
kind of thing that this is.
5.Remember: when people tell you something is
wrong or doesn’t work for them, they are almost always right. When they tell
you exactly what they think is wrong and how to fix it, they are almost always
6.Fix it. Remember that, sooner or later,
before it ever reaches perfections, you’ll have to let it go and move on and
start to write the next thing. Perfection is like chasing the horizon. Keep
7.Laugh at your won jokes.
The main rule of writing is that if you do it
with enough assurance and confidence, you’re allowed to do whatever you like
(that may be a rule for life as well as for writing.) So write your story as it
needs to be written. Write it honestly and tell it as best you can.
don’t isolate yourself – When you’re feeling lonely it is hard to go out
and be with others who seem to be OK, and don’t really notice how lonely you
feel. But putting up a wall and withdrawing from your friends will only
intensify that sense of loneliness, and will further undermine your
2. Second, keep yourself busy – Do things
that you normally enjoy with others. For example, listening to a band or maybe
going to watch a game … or you could always try something that’s new, but
interests you! That would allow you to connect in a non-threatening way … as it
takes the focus off talking, and off you.
3. Third, be kind to yourself - It’s
likely that you regularly beat yourself up, criticize yourself and are
unrealistic in the kinds of expectations that you have for yourself. So what,
if it goes wrong? You can always try again – just learn what you can from the
experience. And notice your successes and the times when it goes well. It’s
likely that this happens a lot more than you think!
4. Fourth, recognize that we ALL battle
loneliness at times - You’re not some kind of freak – it’s actually quite
normal. It is something we’ve all known and understand.
talk to someone you like and trust – It can really help to talk about your
feelings with a family member, a friend or counsellor. It relieves some of the
painful sense of isolation – and help to get your life back in perspective
