Let us all 'Wear from India'

Everyone today is brand conscious and is particular about certain branded products. Because one of the factors that attract is the quality and vivid designs available which are extremely brilliant especially for clothes. But do we realize that this contributes to their country’s development rather than ours? Loyalty towards international brands does not allow us to connect much with our very own Indian designers and manufacturers.

The Dark Side of Social Media

Social Media has undoubtedly contributed towards making the world a global village and has uncountable benefits. It makes it easier for us to stay connected with people with whom we cannot meet on a daily basis, and also provides a platform to people from all forms of backgrounds for sharing opinions and views on various global issues.

Toyota Platinum Etios - A Car for your Family

With the rising urban population and the income levels, there has been an astonishing increase in the purchasing  power of the consumers. This is directly proportional to an increase in the number of people who own vehicles and many are planning in the near future. However, the Indian Market is quite different from the rest of the world. Budget cars which have low ownership cost, larger cabin, and luggage space, comfort for the entire family, are some of the key considerations for the Indian car buyers. Toyota, which is one of  the world's most established automobile brands has been taking the Indian Market seriously and have launched a series of models on the same lines in the past few years.

Why Spending Money on Experiences makes Happy than spending on Things?

We live in a society that is obsessed with consumption. Houses, cars, technology, etc. are the items you are spending you hard earned money on. You are so habituated with these materialistic things that you can’t go anywhere without your personal laptops or cell phones.

A unique initiative by UP Govt to bring in Social Goodwill in the society

The recent efforts of the Uttar Pradesh government towards achieving social goodwill within the state are worth mentioning. These unique efforts that have been undertaken by the UP government will surely bring in social development and equanimity among all the citizens. It will also lead to the social growth and development of the country on the whole. This unique initiative by the UP government involves two major recent events that include setting up of the Bhajan Sandhya Amphitheatre in Ayodhya and inauguration of the Haj House in Ghaziabad. This has been possible due to the continuous efforts of the Hon. Chief Minister Shri Akhilesh Yadav.

How to Deal with Your Existential Crisis 101

Recently, I watched the movie I Heart Huckabees. It had a stellar cast and was the kind of weird that is required to make for good entertainment. It dealt with our all-so-familiar existential crises with a pinch of salt, which in this case is  'comedy.' We all (or I believe most of us) have that one time in life when nothing seems to go right and your life seems meaningless and all you think it requires is a prefixed purpose. We think ourselves rotten to find a sign which shows what the meaning of life is and why we are who we are. Many of us would, of course, consider it better to deal with it by indulging in activities that you feel will give you purpose and keep you from thinking. However, the mind has these thoughts like a pre-programmed algorithm running in the background and it fills every void of an idle brain making it indeed a worthy workshop for the devil. So, here is how you can deal with it.

Swachhta Abhiyaan: Cleaning of What?

“Change has to come! Change is necessary, and for our society it is inevitable.”

We are Indians! We are the people of such a democratic country where the voice of ‘common people’ (as the term is used frequently) is still heard. We are proud of our nation for  having an incessant number of excellences and resources (natural as well as human), may it be academic, military, geography, cultures, cross cultures, diversity in various fields, artistic and scientific innovations, great scholars (from the Vedic era), etc. This lovely subcontinent is the hub for tourists across the globe irrespective of race, religion, nation. We are regarded as precious for being humble and cultural. All these things are not new for us. But, still, these should be reminded time to time as we have possessed a habit of ignoring and trivializing our own thought-process.

- The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho

But sometimes, your schedule and the universe's just don't match up. During such instances, take a few minutes to reflect upon your situation and derive the best from it.

Influence of Technology in our Daily Life

We all are too much dependent on technology. From morning to night, we use too many gadgets to save our time and efforts. We all have busy schedules and for completing our tasks on time it helps us a lot. I completely agree that they are very useful for saving time which is very precious but we can’t ignore the fact that it also makes us lazy on the other hand. And it ultimately affects our health adversely.
