I have a subject in college called Foundation Course. At first it seemed quite boring because it was History and Civics all over again. But then, we were kids at that time; saw and treated events and issues as just another chapter in our syllabus. But today, when I hear about all those practices, I react and feel differently. 

  Unity in Diversity. This is what actually defines India.

This means that Indians are free to practice whatever religion they want. But we have the LAW which makes sure that no one is crossing their limits. The problem arises when religion and law clash.

Ae Zamaana Hai Mushkil - Are we overreacting ?

Uri attacks - The attacks which shocked the nation. 17 jawans killed in a cowardly attack by Pakistan. As always, as all enemy countries do, they denied the attacks.

The country erupted with anger. 1000s of tweets in twitter. People voicing their opinions. Outrage in the country. So much so that PM Modi ordered a surgical strike where we killed off their terrorists.

But let me tell you something.

A person reacts to an incident only if he knows it has occurred. If he isn't aware of a particular incident, he doesn't react; he carries on with his life.

Writing Skills - Author Review

I won't be writing the plot of the books. No words can describe it better than the story itself. However, I would like to comment on the nature if the author's writing.

Here, my author is AMISH TRIPATHI.

Hairfall ? You may be eating the wrong Foods

For a girl there is one thing which makes her look even more beautiful than she already is. Its her HAIR.

Yes, you read that correctly. Forget the almond shaped eyes, the flawless skin or the luscious lips. Its the hair. Dermatologists say that they can predict how healthy a person is by just looking at their hair.

You may say that you eat a lot of food. But at times its not the quantity that matters, but the correct type of nutrients. I once did a project in school about balanced diet. It said the same thing as well : Focus on what goes in and not how much goes in.

Image result for hair

Why does your hair start falling ? Because the body says, " I am not getting enough nutrients, so I won't supply to some part of the body." So it decides to sacrifice the least important one : HAIR

So, I've browsed through a couple of sites and found out the best ways to prevent hair fall (and it doesn't include going for hair spa).

Never Say Never - Dipa Karmakar (Video)

In my earlier post "Ability beyond Disability" I wrote about physically disabled athletes who brought glory and honor to our country. But what if you are handicapped even though you are physically fit ?

By that I mean not having enough or proper resources and facilities to help you achieve your goal.

Here is the classic case of Dipa Karmakar, the girl who attempted the deathly Prudonova also known as the Death Vault- because you can die performing this at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

She is the first Indian woman gymnast ever to compete in the Olympics and the first Indian Gymnast to do so in 52 years. Quite a long time, isn't it?

Trusting your Country

For all the taunting and bickering we do about our country, here's how much we actually trust it to take care of us.


Ability Beyond Disability

Olympics are the games we all know. However, not many of us are aware of the Paralympics and even less are interested in it.

However this year's Olympics and Paralympics generated a lot of excitement. For the simple reason that this year India saw PV Sindhu reaching the  finals and winning a Silver in Badminton singles ( the only achiever so far being Sania Mirza who won a Bronze) and Sakshi Malik who won a bronze in wrestling as well as Dipa Karmakar who finished 4th. *Respect*

But this article isn't about them. It is about those specially abled people who won way more medals than the Rio Olympians.
