We all are aware of the “Whatsapp” university, Twitter troll army and Facebook fake news. But can you imagine how significant damage can social media cause in the country and world affairs? How political parties and governments use social media as a weapon against their own citizens. You must be wondering for a long time that something is undoubtedly driving these acts.

BREXIT = BRITAIN +EXIT. The question asked in the referendum to the UK citizens whether they want to take the UK out of the European Union. Some politicians supported it, and some were against…

Do you know Kenny Sebastian, the standup comedian? On 1st July’20, he was involved in a twitter debate regarding the Tik Tok ban in India. Then the twitter handle replied back calling him a “rice bag convert”, which is a derogatory term often used against the Christian community.

It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all. In which case you fail by default!J.K. Rowling The world is changing faster than ever. What used to take decades, is taking months. What we see right now is the illusion which people might have had for many decades about the workplace being the secure place for the rest of your lives.

They seem to have less time and less freedom, living under constant pressure. Most of the…

Understanding inflation rate in the easiest way

Understanding inflation rate in the easiest way

Blog, Curiosity questions
Hey! Imagine if I had given you a 100-rupee note back in the year 1958. You had hidden it under your bed thinking that you will use it in an emergency, the sad part is the value of the same 100-rupee note would be Rs.1.20 today. You didn’t get that? Let’s try another angle- If you buy goods worth 100 rupees today, the value of the same goods back in 1958 would be Rs.1.20. That means today’s Rs. 100 is equal to Rs. 1.20 in 1958. This is the magic of inflation. Inflation means a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money. This applies to everyone every year. Let’s understand “inflation” through the following questions today:- Why does inflation occur?Is inflation really bad?What is the…

How much money do IPL and franchisee earn and spends?How much money do the players get?How much money the title sponsors- VIVO spent?Why many…

Gunjan Saxena – Capability of women in armed forces

Blog, Incredible Stories
Today I want to talk about a film Gunjan Saxena on Netflix, yet to be released, which addresses many critical severe issues along with being a story about a real-life hero. Suppose if I ask you to imagine army personnel of the Indian Army, you will picture about a male soldier only. Because historically and traditionally, our society hasn’t considered women fit to serve this post. Women have always been considered to take care of the house or cook in the kitchen. Never regarded as capable of the role of armed forces. Recently in February 2020, the honourable Supreme court gave permission that female officers can also take permanent commission posts and position of commands. Before February 2020 it was impossible, but if we see overall the percentage of female…
