YOUR TIME IS LIMITED

Do you know that an average woman spends one year of her lifetime deciding what to wear? And the average man spends more than 11 months between the ages of 18 and 50 staring at women! Though we know that we spend more time watching TV shows, (around three hours a day) we spent 61 minutes a day watching ads and other promotions unknowingly. Do these really matter to our success to spend these much time? Well, here are some ways to spend our time effectively.

From childhood we have been forced by our parents or teachers to do some work, may be to read, eat or even to bath. Its time for us to pressurise ourselves to do our own work. This could be done by making schedules. Start your day with a schedule or make a standard schedule which you can change accordingly. Learn to say NO. When you have more things to do than your actual capacity you may end up doing nothing. Lock yourself in a room so that you can have full concentration on what you do. This will help you finish your work soon and go to the next. When you start prioritising your works and start doing the most important ones first, the day becomes easy. Decide which is more important and do it now!

Appearances are deceptive. Start doing things which will be helpful and permanent. Beauty is always temporary and the time spent on it is waste. Stop getting inspired by others face and your desire to impress them. Life is too short to spend time for others. Make that time productive. Learn new things. Follow excitement and try to do what you are afraid of. Remember, the things which get to you because of your beauty are as temporary as it and it will leave you once your beauty leaves. Think what matters!

Do not let social media consume your time. I used to spend more time like anyone on social media before I realised the purpose of my life. Scrolling through new feeds, gossips doesn’t help you in anyway. So, I unfollowed most celebrities, fan clubs and meme pages. Go through your ‘following’ list once and unfollow whatever page you think is useless. I started reading more (not magazines) and it was a new kind of joy. Scroll through pages and not feeds. Look at things from a new perspective. Use social media to impact others rather than to inspire them. Be happy by uplifting fellow people.  Make the time you spend on social media useful by spending time with friends discussing helpful topics. Just spend less time with your phone than yesterday. I don’t say to avoid it completely.

Have a close bond with nature, travel, laugh and get inspired by everyone you see. Gift for new reason and help without any expectation.  Try doing these and you will realise what life really means. These will become your habit if you do them for 21 days. All the best!

A FAULT IN THE INDIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM

Well,education plays an important role in the development of a nation as well as an individual. It’s the most powerful tool countries have for boosting economic growth, increasing prosperity. We have been studying this in our essays since childhood. But is that really contributing? I would say NO. The Indian education system does not contribute in building a well enlightened person. It just builds a machine which memorizes anything in spite of not understanding.   This problem starts just because of us. Where educational deprivation exists, it breeds conflict and enables repression.

This system concentrates just in making the students score top ranks no matter how much they actually learn, understand and get the concepts to their mind. Though we say that the teachers lack proper knowledge the main potential problem is that they are not given enough time by the management to make students understand by teaching in an elevated manner.

The reason for this act of the management of any educational institution is to increase the number of admission each year. This can be achieved only if the school gives good result in the board exams. And finally that’s a chain. The management forces the teachers and they dump the students with information. The salary of teachers who are the builders of future pillars(collectors, doctors, so on.,) are very low compared to other jobs and depends on the results they produce. The teachers would also have their own personal problems and so they can’t oppose their higher officials.

This makes the students memorize anything and everything without knowing what the concept and subject is. There were people who memorized even Mathematics in my school. Some studied only those questions that were repeatedly asked in previous year boards. They have no interest in learning the concept being mark-minded.

Parents, some in the view of helping their children and some to achieve their own dream no matter what their child’s wish is, make them join in coaching classes and tuition centers. Again there they are trained to score 100%

This doesn’t end. The problem is also with the society. Judging people with their marks, making them get into engineering and medicine and blow off their dreams. They just force other children to take a stream in which they have no interest in. Even when the child’s parents support him, the society keeps on questioning making him frustrated and sometimes give up. The Government has a great responsibility in this. Unfortunately some of us become rats for them to check the quality of any syllabus.

We all know what’s wrong with the system yet we don’t think for a solution. We fight for everything but not the system which builds the future pillars of the nation. Only we form the society and its an individual’s role to change this system. First we must stop giving unwanted career advice for those who are not in need and changing their path from what they wish to become. Those who start questioning back the society must not be prevented from doing so. The students have rights to decide their career. Only they know what they are good at. The society just wants everyone to study medicine or engineering and make the society a monotonous piece of trash.

We should understand that marks does not matter always. We must avoid making ill of what others choose and interfering in their life. Not all toppers are engineers and doctors and not all arts students are failures. The arts field is not for slow learners. Every field has some difficulties. The field students choose should depend on their interest and in which they excel and not on what parents or this silent society say. The students must study with interest and be eager to learn new concepts in their favorite field. The teachers should make some effort to teach students about some new and latest information as the books and concepts we study now are out dated. With all technologies we have now, students must use it to learn new things everyday , make some time to improve themselves in all fields and in what they wish to continue.

EDUCATION IS A HUMAN RIGHT WITH IMMENSE POWER TO TRANSFORM.

India’s first underwater rail tunnel

The longest rail tunnel in the world is Japan’s Seikan tunnel which is 53.9 km long, located beneath Tsugaru Strait and connects Hokkaido Island with Aomori Prefecture. Its surveying commenced by 24 April 1946 and its construction by 28 September 1971. This tunnel was opened on 13 March 1988. Such a tunnel is now in India!

Boring of India’s first underwater rail tunnel running under the Hooghly river connecting Howrah and Kolkata got completed on 23 May 2017 before its scheduled deadline of July. Its final commissioning is scheduled by December 2019. Its initial deadline was 2012 which was first postponed to 2015. The companies responsible for the construction are Afcons Transtonnelstroy and Kolkata Metro Railway Corporation Ltd. The machine Rachna was used to dig it.

The total length of the entire project is 16.6 km, out of which 10.8 km runs under ground. Of this, 502 meters is under water. The stretch of 16.6 km will have 12 stations, 6 of which are underground and 6 are on elevated tracks. The total project costs 750 million USD ( about 500 crore INR) The operation was delayed several times due to land allocation, slum relocation, route alignment problems and so on..

Useful colors of music

Chances are as you’re reading this article you’re listening to your iPod or an awesome cover on Youtube. Or maybe you have that song stuck in your head. Music spreads through our everyday life so much so that we barely notice it’s presence. But is music just a pleasure?

Listening to music is one of the few activities that uses the entirety of human brain. It clears our minds and has been known to make us smarter. The level of stress hormones in the blood declines significantly in those listening to relaxing music, sometimes replacing the need for medication. Listening to music for an hour every day can reduce chronic pain upto 21% and depression upto 25% It’s even been reported that ambient sound, played at a moderate volume, can encourage creativity and that listening to music can help repair brain damage and can improve brain functioning. Music and sound can boost immune function. Music creates less physical tension and stress, calms the mind, and helps the body heal itself.

Several studies have shown that music can boost endurance and help us use energy more efficiently during exercise. Songs help us remain in exercise till the end of it. One theory even introduces something called the “Mozart effect,” and a study that builds on the theory found that the infamous composer’s “Piano Sonata in D Major” led to decreased epilepsy in patients, a finding even extended to patients in comas. It has been found that the verbal and visual skills are improved when an individual practices on the piano. It inhibits the occurrence of fatigue, as well as changes the pulse and respiration rates. Music has the ability to return lost memories. Songwriting can help patients confront impulse control and allows an output for negative emotions. An additional useful study reveals that Alzheimer’s patients recall words to familiar songs much better than spoken words or information.

A survey has concluded that students listening to music have higher GPA. Students can perform well while listening to music and doing math homework than reading history. Music has been put to use in hospitals, nursing homes and many other places where stress levels rise. Patients who listened to music while waiting for surgery subjectively reported lower anxiety. Medical students are well known for experiencing very high stress levels, at least 18% of medical graduates studied, played instruments daily. If only there were some way to make yourself seem smarter without working. Oh, wait, there is. Mozart music, especially piano music, can raise your spatial reasoning, the equivalent of nine IQ points. Music can boost productivity. Research into health and memory in work environments has radically changed the way music is used in the workplace.

Music therapy is given to children and adolescents with psychopathology in many countries. Studies have shown that music therapy has a moderate positive effect for the patients and is more effective. Music is a form of communication, although it does not employ linguistic symbols or signs. The act of singing can bring people together. Today it is an extremely popular and available form of entertainment. The kind of music you listen affects the way you read people’s facial expression. It is a unique gift to and from each person who creates it. A study also showed that we find happiness when we synchronize with other individuals and this is what takes place when everyone sang together.

Throughout all of the research we noted that music is extremely helpful to health, learning, memory, can motivate people and help relax those who are too stressed, which is why we think that music should be integrated in some way into the school programs, hospitals and at work to help people stay relaxed, learn and concentrate, and stay in a good mood. It is also recommended that parents should give their kids music lessons since they’re very young so they can learn things faster and have better concentration when they’re in school. Continue hearing!

Sleep is not just sleeping

Sleep’s importance goes way beyond just boosting your mood, banishing under-eye circles or making you feel good. Adequate sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle and can benefit your heart, weight, mind and more.

“Sleep is a golden chain that ties health and our body together”

Sleep can control stress levels, blood pressure and cholesterol levels that reduces the risk of heart disease. A good sleep helps us lose weight as during sleep, certain hormones drive appetite. If you’re trying to learn something new, whatever it is you’ll perform better after sleeping. For an athlete, a simple way to improve the performance is sleep.

“Sleep is just as important as diet and exercise”

Too much or too less sleep shortens one’s lifespan. 12% increase in risk of death is due to short sleep and 30% increase is due to a long sleep. This implies that there is an increased risk of death from anything other than seven or eight hours of sleep a night. One in five adults fail to get enough sleep. Lack of sleep causes significant functional impairment in school.

“As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.”

Sleep can facilitate insightful behavior and makes you more creative. Sleeplessness affects reaction time and decision making, causing more accidents. When you’re snoozing (which often occurs in a good sleep), the body repairs damaged tissue, produces crucial hormones and strengthens memories.

“If you are going to do something tonight, that you’ll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.”

Yes! Sleep is also a key to success.

Reading books has these benefits too!

Often in essays it’s mentioned that reading books help in mental stimulation, stress reduction, knowledge and vocabulary expansion, memory improvement, focusing and concentrating. Apart from them they help in improving writing skills also. Reading helps to recognize different patterns that occur in writing. A study of one hour per day in any chosen field will make you an international expert in seven years.

It has health benefits too! Books help us be calm, reducing blood-pressure. In today’s hurry-burry work-life reading a book at the end of the day helps one feel good, no matter what book he/she chooses. A study has shown that people who read are two and half times less likely to be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Reading gives brain a workout and keeps the brain young. If one starts reading during a workout, a suck-you-in plot may keep you on the exercise machine for a long time to finish a captivating chapter which makes him/her healthy and fit. Doctors suggest using machine’s book ledge to avoid neck/shoulder pain.

Reading offers Brazilian prisoners to shorten their sentences along with cycling. By “Redemption through learning”, four days will be cut for every book they read, trimming 48 days off their sentence a year. They are asked to write in paragraphs without flaws to succeed in this. A person can leave prison more enlightened and with an enlarged vision of the world. Without doubt they will leave a better person.

New York University researchers say, stories provide life-changing perspective. Getting wrapped up in the lives of characters strengthens one’s ability to understand others’ feelings. A study done has concluded that access to fictional story lines opens you up to new emotions and feelings. It also helps you to understand people. Books are the cheapest mean of entertainment and yes! your neighbors would never complain that your book is too loud.

Addiction to reading books has a disease too. Abibliophobia is known as the fear of running out of reading material. An author Rita suffers from such abibliophobia that she almost lives in the library. She had begun writing novels as a result of suffering from acute abibliophobia.

After you enter the reading world there is no wonder if you read books that help you relieve from abibliophobia! People in Iceland read more books per capita than in any other country. Now make your country win!!
