Plastic bags are found everywhere. Every shop keeper eagerly hands over the goods we purchase in plastic bags. They are manufactured in various sizes and thickness and very convenient to carry being light. We are generally not bothered to know the amount of the damage to the environment these bags cause. Plastic bags are made from non renewable natural source petroleum. These bags are also one of the major reasons for dwindling natural resources. They are called polyethylene or polythene bags. These Polythene bags are agents of air pollution, cancer, skin diseases etc. and have made the world’s clean environment as a pile of garbage on earth. Its use is like a slow poison in daily life and seems more dangerous than an atom bomb. They are not biodegradable. They last 1000 years on land and 450 years in water. The melting point for high density polythene is 120-130 degree centigrade and for low density polythene the melting point is 105-115 degree centigrade. These bags are not degradable unless exposed to ultra violet rays from the Sun.Black colour polythene shopping bags emit chemicals(carcinogens) when burnt.
The plastic bags are available in various sizes and thickness. About 80 million tons of plastic More >
Why do we give so much importance to the external appearance of a person? How does it matter if someone is white, red, brown or black? It seems the colour of the blood is also different depending upon the colour of the skin.
I have seen many Indians not even caring to greet fellow Indians in a far away country like America any number of times leave alone talking as if they are in India. It is quite an embarrassing sight even to watch. I have seen Indians coming in groups to temples in America talk among themselves and leave the temples without bothering about other fellow Indians.
I would like to share our heavenly experience with a black person, I hate to call him that way, who has a heart of gold. His name is Larry L Lee. This man simply goes out of way to help unknown persons. He must be certainly belonging to some other world quite unknown to Indians.
In June this year I went to Pittsburgh, America, along with my wife to visit Venkateswara temple. We stayed in Super 8 motel. My wife has driving license but doesn’t have that much confidence in driving due to lack More >

There are many people in this world who are blessed with reasonable wealth. They can always afford to easily part with a major proportion of their wealth for the betterment of the society while safeguarding their economical status and also after taking care of their children. A person has to introspect himself or herself as to how much wealth is really needed.
There are millions and millions of poor people in this world who are struggling to make both their ends meet. They love to provide better education to their children but send their children for work rather helplessly. The children are deprived of education for no fault on their part. The majority of the poor people have blind faith in their religion. They believe that children are God’s gift and God will take care of them. They don’t even worry for the worsening health of their wives and their children. They further think that the more the number of children they have the more family income they get. It is their sheer ignorance. Some of them even sell their children to the childless couples for paltry sum. More >
A plum once said, just because a banana lover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I have changed so many times that I no more know who I am. How I wish I had remained a plum and waited for a plum lover.
Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality. You need to think good of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate. Never stoop down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a relationship. In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest glory – your uniqueness, for momentary validation.
There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as king / queen by just being yourself. Find that world… in fact, that world will find you. What water can do, gasoline cannot and what More >
Rave parties are a nuisance to the society. These parties can be organized by anyone right from the students to politicians and other influential people. These parties are organized generally with the unaccounted money available with them. Sometimes contractors, business people, film and TV personalities and even professionals indulge in such parties. In the name of civilization they smoke cigarettes, take hot drinks and even take prohibited drugs, gamble and further take part in illicit sexual activities.
Antisocial elements actively take part in these rave parties and resort to blackmailing the gullible people involved in these parties. Educated girls are also attracted to such parties in the name of modern living. Sometimes these girls and the boys attend these parties just to have some fun only to repent their folly forever. It will be too late by then. There have been instances of a number of suicides committed by the youth out of shame when caught by the police red handed.
Recently NDTV reported an interesting news about the strict instructions given by the rural police of Pune to the resort owners totalling 550 members in this connection. The police gave the following guidelines to keep a track of what is happening in such More >
Wandering eyes eager to behold thee Heart aflutter in anticipation messages ahoy, but what is its ploy? Is it going to cause laughter or cry? Storms and showers common to me! Like a fool, i await to sail across the waves! In school the Math i learnt But i guess i never learnt the art of the heart! Prodigious over my daily home work Alas, forgot to take love, how to love…
Media plays an important and constructive role in the society. They help us to know current affairs on the spot. They put their lives in danger during a terrorist attack or a natural disaster, just to inform us about it. It is partly because of the media that there is awareness spreading in the Society. That is how many Countries are able to contribute to the affected areas. Who are the people who tell us about corruption? Who are the people who tell us about the crimes? It is the media that does it.
Today some news channels and even some newspapers have become the mouthpiece of some Political parties and political leaders. Their work then limits the media only to spread the ideology of the particular party they represent rather than giving the correct news. People have to judge on their own by surfing different channels for the same news and then arrive at a conclusion. Now a day’s some television channels and newspapers are making fast money by cashing on the news in wrong sense and wrong way. In the race to become more popular and to make more money they have broken all the ethics media must follow while More >
Why do people put blame on others? Perhaps it’s the easiest and the most obvious thing we do when things don’t go according to our plan. We have it in our mind by default that mistakes are always made by others and not by us. It’s a dangerous presumption because our conscience knows that blaming others is an act of hiding the insecurity created by our knowledge of having committed something wrong.
Very often we find our politicians blaming each other for the silly reasons. This is the sorry state of affairs in our Country. They assert that if they or any of their kith and kin had been in Power, nothing would have been amiss. They do nothing for the benefit of the common man when they or any of their kith and kin actually get a Position of Authority, they prove to be no different from others. It’s not only our politicians but every one of us find it very simple to state that the people in Power are not doing anything. We are delighted to put forward our views regarding our vision and the change that would be brought about if we were put in their shoes. We hardly More >
Poverty in India is real and a very complex issue. In the year 2000 it was estimated that 26% of India’s population was living below their national poverty line. This is an improvement from the 1950’s figure of over 50% living in poverty but there are still well over 250 million people for whom poverty is a way of life in India.
Children in particular are badly affected by poverty. Problems such as malnutrition, child labour and high mortality rates are very real issues faced in their day to day life in the case of those affected badly by poverty. More than 40% of the world’s malnourished children are found in India although India contains lesser than 20 % of the World’s child population. Girls are more often affected badly than boys as gender inequality is also a fact of life in India.
Child labour is a significant problem in India where it is estimated that between 75 to 90 million children under 14 are working to earn bread and butter for their families some times and contribute to the family income most of the time. The jobs they perform are often difficult, mean and low-paying. They need their wages to help More >
