Well, there can’t be a better way to feel proud and happy, than cheering for the country which has  got Independence. Yes, even more so, as social media has been instrumental towards expressing the same, with greater gusto too 🙂

As India celebrated its 70th  Independence Day, we have actually covered a long journey since its birth. Although, the journey has never been smooth for long with little potholes on the way, yet as Indians we still feel proud of being a part of such a beautiful country. Isn’t it?

Aren’t our emotions charged the moment we sing National Anthem and how can we miss unfurling the flag even today. Isn’t it?

The kind of craziness amongst our tiny tots is equally perspective of the fact that they have something to cheer and feel proud of this day. Although, they are too young to think about its significance but seeing them holding flags is enough towards making us feel even prouder of our future. Isn’t it?

People of every age and especially youngsters are quite vocal about raising their points as they say to what they feel appropriate. On 15th August, this article is all about how citizens of our country have got social media as the perfect medium to showcase their point of view by equally necessitating the government functionary to work in a transparent way. Hence, this is what as citizens we actually feel proud of as well.

The role of media has been immense as it has been instrumental towards playing a key role in gauging a sense of where the country is heading. The youngsters of a country play an immense role in molding its future and the social media platform has given a great platform for them to be a part of this functioning. Who could have thought the agitation where respected Anna Hazare played a key role in Jantar Mantar will turn out to be such a massive hit? As lakhs of people aired their grievances and vented their anger against the government and promised to support the agitation by making comments on social media sites such as Facebook and twitter. Isn’t it?

Social media is proving to be great ammunition for the citizens where they can discuss with the changing conditions of the country amongst their brethren. Now, the baseless and meaningless comments uttered by some of the politicians like one can get a proper diet in Rs 12 can have a devastating effect to the future of that party as these things which will be properly scrutinized and monitored by the people who are out there to showcase their anger. So what if you live in Kashmir or Kanyakumari, we are all one and that’s exactly what social media has turned out to be a uniting force for every one.

Greater is the platform, the biggest reach it equally ensures. Now, gone are the days when the politicians can get away with the comments. The platform of social media has given the citizens of the country a strong hold about its matters and it equally has the potential of toppling the regime for sure. After all, when we have the right to vote, can’t we participate in the day to-day affairs of our country?

Hats Off to Social Media, the country is going to see a reformation in the coming days where the government is going to work with transparency and any wrong move will surely cost the politicians their coveted seats as well. So, as Indians, we should really feel proud of the fact that social media has united us in the hour when the nation has needed our participation and we have rightly realized our duty which is going to take our country to a corrupt free country in the days to come. We all hope and wish for the same as well. Now the impact of Social Media cannot be controlled in any way. After all, when there is a talk of masses, then it surely has the potential of creating revolution of sorts. Isn’t it?
There could not have been a better day than this to showcase the biggest strength which the people of the country have got in the form of social media. Now, they can surely feel a part of the country by making their opinion on the matters. Isn’t it something to really feel proud of on such an important and auspicious day which has proved to be a new dawn 66 years back?

Jai Hind.

There is great news for you that you can actually start polishing your English easily.

Most of us have taken too much of pressure and responsibilities on our shoulders regarding English, that it starts to take its toll on ourselves. Little do we realize that if we take it easy, then we can ensure better prospects for ourselves. So, let’s take a look at the ways by which we can improve our English further:-

 

You can’t improve English without increasing your vocabulary

 

Have you ever felt loss of words while speaking and that created a strong sense of embarrassment for you?

If in case you had, then gear up, improving your English has the direct relation with learning one new word daily.

After learning make at least few sentences out of it, to know how it is used. If you don’t know how you need to fit in the sentences, then your job isn’t done.

 

You can’t polish English without knowing tenses

 

Most of us overlook the aspect of tenses even though they act as the solid base. But, we give a damn and that’s where no matter how much we put efforts to improve by practicing verbal English, we don’t get desired results.

You can’t polish without making the first move

 

Do you know that your gang of friends gives you the biggest reason to understand the extent of adverse situation?

Yes, because they mock at you while you initiate to talk them, thus leaving you in embarrassment. However, on a brighter side, you gain confidence to overcome even the toughest of situations, if you don’t give-in to the pressure

You can’t polish English without believing yourself

 

As an experienced English teacher of 10 years, I have seen that by and large people are so confused with themselves that they actually can’t rate themselves from a scale of 1 – 10 with regards to the progress they have made over a period of time. Yes, loving yourself and having a belief in you is such an important mechanism which gives you confidence.

You can’t polish English without making eye contact

 

While practicing English or for that matter even talking to people in any language, courtesy says that you have to make eye contact while speaking. Yes, that not just make the conversation beautiful and friendly, but it equally gives you confidence to speak. Now, on the same lines, you have to ensure the same while you talk. Likewise, you need to have a mirror in front of you and talk to yourself by looking at the eyes. This actually gives you boost and a pleasant mechanism that you are actually talking to someone else.

 

Mistake we do

 

What many of us fail to realize that “knowing English” and “speaking in a gathering” are two different things? Where speaking in a get-together has more to do with your personality development and practice. On the same lines, it takes a lot of courage to speak in your local language amidst the group. So, develop your personality by making in eye-contact with people you chat

If you are looking for an awesome way of living a life with dignity and respect, then hold tight.

Yes, the following post will throw open various ways and avenues of how you can actually create a wonderful option for yourself.

Do you know what is the most uncertain thing in today’s scenario? Well, “Life” itself. Although,  it is a bitter truth, yet it is the reality of life. You never know what the time has in store for you next. We have been grown up with the shocking news of so many millionaires whose business fallout jeopardized their financial life. We would have even seen some of these cases happening with our own near and dear ones.

Therefore, no body can be certain about his/her own financial life. So what, if there is a natural catastrophe like flood, storm or earth quake and your business crumbled like pack of cards  or even man made actions damaged your business? Similarly, you never know when you ended up with a deadly accident and there is a financial instability in your ever growing company which shockingly resulted in death knell of your company with your demise.

My own idea of writing the post is not to scare you but to give a sense of warning so that you bravely face some of the bitterest realities of life in a fool proof manner.

You should be smart enough in gearing up for those emergency situations. There can’t be a better way to prepare for such sort of situations than by creating an emergency fund.

Hence, now I am going to tell you 4 ways to start your emergency fund

Emergency fund can only be created if you are smart enough in taking out a space for saving from the (already) tight monthly budget

Don’t compromise over you “saving” process

We are living a life of hallucination since we feel that it will be next to possible for us to save money with the limited budget which we already have. However, if you are really serious, then you will at least take a look at the broad picture. After all, we can’t start with saving, unless and until we are really serious. Take little steps at a time and all will be fine for sure as it is one of the important ways to start your emergency fund.

Write down on your diary (which you normally use, or pin it down on the cupboard) etc that you have to take out “x’ amount of money on monthly basis as a part of savings. One of the easiest ways to save is to limit your weekend party to once in a fortnight, or even better if you do it one in a month as it will help you save.

Ask yourself

The best answer you will get in your quest of saving money is by asking yourself

  • What will I do, if I happen to loose my job?
  • How will my spouse cope up with the sudden illness or how will the future of my children shape without money?

It is these real-life and most important questions which will naturally instill a sense of fear in yourself and you will be able to give a serious look. Since, it is said that self-introspection do wonders and as you feel challenged to get answers from within, you will eventually be forced to start saving for your emergency fund as well.

You can make arrangements of watching movies right in your home or your friend’s home, rather than going for watching movie outside. This will save a lot as a part of individual tickets. Isn’t it? It is important to make conscious decisions and by doing so, you don’t have to fight with yourself in the process as well.

Regularly revise your goals on weekly basis

Another way to start your emergency fund is to start saving by setting small target. So, in the beginning try setting a goal for yourself of saving on weekly basis. Since, the target is small, you will better be able to work on them. It has its psychological effect.

If you are in debt, then the most obvious and prominent excuse which you will give in not having an emergency fund is that you are already paying the money of debt. However, even here you have to make suitable arrangements. In the event when you come across with a financial emergency, then in the absence of cash you will be forced to take loan with high interest which might even lead you to bankruptcy. Therefore, make plans to have an emergency fund which should comprise of at least three months of your salary and you should take steps for setting up the same on priority bases as well. In the process, you should equally make arrangements for paying off your debt too.

Conclusion

The reason why these ways can be termed as “easily attainable” because you can immediately adopt them (in order to take out savings) from your monthly limited budget. Therefore, show the true spirit of being successful by gearing up for such emergency situations and let your near and near ones live a life of ease and comfort. After all, you don’t want them to suffer because of your carelessness. So, ensure a life of prosperity, ease and jubilation by following the above 4 ways to start your emergency fund.

Hopefully, the post will assist you to be more cautious and carefully and take life with a charming prospective and zeal.
