There is a proverb that says-

“Home is where the heart is”

Of all the beautiful places in the world, you find the most comfort at your home, no matter where it is.

But what happens when our homes start killing our hearts?

You might be thinking ‘what are you saying’

Today our homes are in danger of being hijacked by some invisible devils that could kill our hearts and brain.

The devils are none other than greenhouse gases and particulate matters.

Climate change is one of the biggest threats human civilization is facing right now.

No wonder, all of…

Writing is one of the greatest inventions in human history.

Imagine those days when there was now writing.

How did people convey their ideas, insights, and information in those days?

Without writing, there could be no accumulation of knowledge, no record of historical events, no exchange of information which means no books, articles, or internet.

Today, all humans alive on this planet can share their ideas if they wish to. That means today you have access to all the insightful ideas.

Whoever you like and adore, today you could know about their philosophy, ideas, perspectives, etc.

I am assuming you…

I was having a great time talking with one of my childhood friends and suddenly he threw some serious questions.

‘Why we as Indians do not value our own traditions?

Are our traditions just superstitions?

Why it requires the western world to first accept our traditions and then we think it is worthwhile?

I didn’t know what exactly to tell him.

These are kind of deep questions about which so many things wander in mind but it is hard to decide where to start with.

While I am writing this article, an abundance of thoughts running in my mind making…

Malcolm X, an African-American leader once said-

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”

There is no denying that a country’s future can be predicted by looking at its education system.

The children of today are not only citizens of tomorrow but the builders of the country in the future.

Every great leader and culture understood this.

That’s why even if you go back 5000 years back, you would find the importance of education even in those times.

Sometimes I wonder if education is the passport to the future, why…

Exactly a year back on December 29, 2019, I wrote an article on ‘how to live a worthwhile year’.

Guess what, one year has passed since then and here I am writing about the year 2020.

Who thought a year back that we would witness a dramatic year as 2020.

And truly we are witnessing a time that once in a century people usually witness.

A major pandemic hits every 100 years once and we are those lucky (or rather unlucky) people to witness such an extraordinary time.

But every cloud has a silver lining.

Yes, a lot of people…

Trust me, I never thought I would write about personal finance one day.

Even when I started my blog, my preferred categories were Science, People, Personal growth, Books, etc.

Two years back, I didn’t have much idea about personal finance and why I need to know about it.

But in the last two years, a lot of things have changed, I have learned a bit about personal finance and realized its significance.

I have realized how broken our education system is which teaches you how to earn money but doesn’t teach you what to do with that money.

Traditionally, it…

A few weeks back, I enrolled in an internship program of Digital Deepak. He is one of India’s well known digital marketers.

After taking a few of his classes, I am convinced that I took the right decision.

Today, I am going to discuss one of his class where he talked about ‘marketing in this age’.

If you are interested in learning about digital marketing in any form, I am sure you will find this article worthwhile.

Below are the topics I learned from one of the classes of digitaldeepak.

  1. The Fundamentals of Marketing

Most people somehow associate with the…

I am sure you have heard about Thalassemia.

It’s so common that you will find it in school Biology textbooks, health magazines, newspapers, everywhere.

Almost 4.5% of the world population is affected by Thalassemia.

In India, more than 10000 Thalassemic children born every year. Yet it has not got the limelight. Until someone is affected, people rarely talk about it.

If you don’t know how it is to be a Thalassemic person then read on.

But wait before I go any further, you might think that why all of a sudden I have decided to write on Thalassemia?

Unless and…

Remember those days when the first thing you used to think after waking up in the morning is about school.

When Wearing the school uniform was a part of your life.

Our school memories fill us with a euphoria feeling. Those were wonderful days.

Today we have come to an age where children wake up in the morning and open their computers to learn.

The purpose of visiting the school and opening computers is the same, it is to learn but the mediums have changed.

I am not saying schools are dead today but you can not deny the fact…
