Critical analysis of Social Media

 Around two or three decades back, not many had imagined that an unheard word called social media would become such a famous and a household name, with a vast amount of population using it on a regular basis. Not many had imagined that a person sitting in one corner of the globe can contact any person far away from him without a telephone in hand.

Not many realise the fact that before the advent of social media, people were loomed by loneliness and boredom. Today the whole world is  on our fingertips. When we take a picture of a beautiful scenery, how bad we wish it to be seen by our friends and acquaintances because we never wanted it to be kept only with us in the first place. Social media gives us the platform to display that picture stored in our mobile phone to the whole world. We get to know whether others loved it or not.

 Today no Indian women can resist watching her friends new jewellery set being posted in Facebook. I myself owe a lot this social media which is currently helping me to convey my thoughts with you all. Social media is witnessing the inflow of ideas innovations and thoughts which are invaluable, with new features being added to this giant sized information centre. But unfortunately it has its shortcomings too. This social media has created a virtual world where everything is more virtual than real. You never know who will be standing by your side when tough times will approach you which, are needless to say are highly inevitable. Having said that, I by no means want to demean  your friends or categorise them as ominous for you. It's just that the kind of anonymity which you and your virtual friend continue to maintain is not healthy. Not having met people personally is also a big drawback.

Even after posting something on the social media your virtual friends might give you a thumbs up but in reality you never know whether he agrees to your opinions or not. What this social media is also doing is that it is creating a gap between you and your real friends and your parents. There was a time when the whole family used to sit together and had the meals, but now most of them are busy posting new updates in social media not giving values to the personal relationships which one has. All in all,social media can act as words;it can hurt someone or heal someone,depending on the way we use it.

I hope it was helpful for you.

This Diwali, Let Us Smash The Traditional Vices

It was Sunday morning, the day most of the people look forward to. But it was not the case with Razia. She woke up heavy-heartedly. Reason- It was Diwali time, and unfortunately due to some or the other reason, she always finds herself in her hometown, Delhi, which off late has been popularly known as the 'gas chamber'. 





Being a Muslim girl never stood in her way of celebrating Diwali with fervour and zeal. She buys new clothes, embellishes her house with some of her handmade craft materials and eats those savoury sweets along with her family. She goes to the place of her Hindu friends, wish all of them and would have a blast! But the only thing with which she maintains a certain amount of distance is the firecrackers. Nearly half of Delhi's kids suffer from 'severe' lung problems due to the deteriorating air quality and Razia is one among those hugely populated children who fall in this unfortunate category. She suffers from asthma, and therefore can't stand …

A Visit to Orphanage and Old-Age home

Mere words won't be able to do justice to describe the kind of majestic experience which we had on that eventful day. A school trip is always a memorable one, but when it is to such a pious place, than it gets all the more interesting. To be honest, we went off from school in a picnic mode. We were all so excited and pumped up. We were sitting in the buses and there were mimicries being done and songs being sung.

Don't Quit- Poem

Since last few days I've been listening to various poems by the budding poets around the globe and enjoyed most of them. But then I came across this one which was so serene and motivating, that I really couldn't resist myself from sharing it with you guys. It somewhat goes like this:


When things go wrong as they sometimes will When the road you're trudging seems all uphill When the funds are low and the debts are high And you want to smile, but you have to sigh. When care is pressing you down a bit,  Rest, if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with it's twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don't give up though the pace seems low You may succeed with another blow Often the gold is nearer than, It seems to be a faint and faltering man. Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup And he learnt too late when the night slipped down, How close he …
