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.

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.

Learning From Nature

The civilisation is trying to destroy it,
But for our children, we've got to preserve it.
The lush green grassland uplifts our mood,
We owe to it a lot as it provides us with nutritious food,
And helps to replenish water with its phenomenon called rain,
Equanimity is the thing which it helps us to maintain.
It rises above discrimination, giving plenty to all,
We humans can learn from it who cheer from others' fall.
Inspiring it is, service is its legacy,
Will we ever shed our ignorance and reach out to the nature ? Well, hopefully!

The last two words of this poem always ignites a sense of optimism within me that one day we will be able to comprehend the true value of nature rather than hurting it when it pleads for mercy; that one day we will take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the rainbow and the serenity of the sunrise ascending gently above the horizon rather than turning our backs onto it, missing out those small moments which really constitute a happy life.

The 2X3X Mindset

Does the title seems to be a bit abstruse. Let me break it down for you. This is something which I learned a few moths ago and guess what? It is doing wonders in my life! This principle states that if you want to double your income and your impact in your organisation, then you must triple your investment in your self-development. 

You can't be progressing in your career if you are not willing to work on yourself and strive to be a better version of yourself with each passing day. What you'll have 2 years from now, 5 years from now,10 years from now solely depends on what you become and what are the things which you are willing to sacrifice today.

 Your income hardly exceeds your self worth and once you acknowledge this very fact, you'll start realising that there is a very urgent need to start learning new skills and be very competitive.

There are innumerable things which are out there in the world which can aide you reach your desired position. Being a bibliophile, I strong…
