Diary: I felt so good after preparing my best after such a long time.

Feeling better after a long time I had been not focusing on my studies for a long time. I decided yesterday that I would prepare two chapters from two different subjects. I studied Climate in Geography and HCl in Chemistry. I had never felt this better for a long time. I had always liked the feeling of preparing the chapter before it was taught in school and then answering it in class.  I had read the chapter and learned every point. Today, when my sir in the tuition was explaining the chapter I was able to answer all the questions he asked. I had so much fun discussing with my friends about different questions and teasing them with my questions. I also prepared 20 questions from the climate chapter for my friends. I will include them in a separate post. I remember all the points so well. I am not able to describe the emotions but I felt really good like before just as I used to feel when I knew every answer, like "I am the God. Ask me anything." It is 12:52 am at the time of

India abstained in the United Nations General Assembly resolution on Israel-Hamas conflict. Know why

  India Deputy Envoy to UN Yojna Patel Jordan proposed a resolution for an “immediate, durable, and sustained humanitarian truce” between Israeli forces and Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. The resolution was adopted by an overwhelming majority of 120 members while 14 voted against and 45 abstained. The Republic of India decided not to vote in the UN General Assembly resolution that called for an immediate humanitarian truce in the Israel-Hamas war. India gave the reason for its abstention saying that the resolution did not mention Hamas and that the UN needs to send a clear message against terror. "We hope that the deliberations of this assembly will send a clear message against terror and violence and expand prospects for diplomacy and dialogue while addressing the humanitarian crisis that confronts us," said India's Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Yojna Patel. The draft resolution had called for an immediate truce in the conflict and unhindered

Robert Card, the main suspect in the Maine mass shooting, found dead

Robert Card can be seen shooting If mass shootings happen in countries like Pakistan - which is very well true - but if the same thing happens in the United States, we do not see it as an act of terror just because people can buy firearms legally in the US and 26 states allow to carry guns without a permit - Florida passing the legislation recently.  Another mass shooting took place in the US. This time the sad incident occurred in Lewiston City, Maine state.   The gunfire broke out shortly before 7 p.m. (Maine local time) and left 18 people dead and nearly 60 injured. The attack happened on Wednesday night at a local bar and a bowling alley in the small town of Lewiston. The suspect in the mass shooting was identified as Robert Card, a firearms instructor in the US Army Reserve who was recently discharged from a mental health facility after reporting hallucinations. Maine State Police released the photographs and other details of the suspect. Seven people were killed at the bowling al

Diary: 28th October 2023. I should start focusing on studies

I should start focusing on studies A couple of weeks ago, I had my second terminal exam and it did not go well. The results are yet to come. I had performed worse in the first terminal and this term my biology and chemistry papers went very badly.  My concentrations from studies are fading away. There are a lot of reasons for this but one of the biggest distractions is my digital devices like my mobile phone.  I had a ten-day vacation after the exam ended and I wasted all these days on the phone. I could recall that when my second-term examinations were still going, I had thought that I would study hard in the holidays after the exam, but I certainly failed to do so. I wasted most of my time watching Anime and YouTube videos and reading useless novels that were of no single importance to me according to my curriculum. I am feeling so bad and I am also shocked at how I became like this. I spend hours chatting with my friends and when they go for lunch or study sessions, I wait for them

PM Rishi Sunak said UK will set up World's first AI safety Institute

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak delivers a speech on AI at Royal Society, Carlton House Terrace on Oct. 26, 2023 in London, England. The world is evolving. We are developing new technologies. Artificial Intelligence is getting better each day. With its advancements, the risks posed by Artificial Intelligence are also increasing.  As we witness the rapid developments in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, we also need to consider the potential risks that Artificial Intelligence and its uses pose. United Kingdom's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Thursday addressed these concerns and warned of the risk of Artificial Intelligence. The warning comes as the UK is preparing for a global summit where policies of safety around technologies will be discussed. The UK wants to take a global role and emerge as a leader in the implementation and regulations of technologies. Sunak said in a speech that AI “will bring a transformation as far-reaching as the industrial revo

8 former Indian Navy Officers Got Death Sentence in Qatar

Eight former Indian Navy Officers were arrested last year in August 2022 on the charges of allegedly spying by Qatar authorities.  They have been convicted and given a death sentence on the allegation of spying for Israel. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has called it "shocking." The foreign ministry also said it would not comment much on the case given the "confidential nature of proceedings" but assured that it would contest the case. The men, including decorated officers who once commanded major Indian warships, were working for Dahra Global Technologies and Consultancy Services, a private firm that provided training and related services to Qatar's armed forces. Sources said some of them were working on a highly sensitive project -- Italian technology-based midget submarines with stealth characteristics. The men have been in jail since August 2022. Granted consular access to them, New Delhi has been working to secure their release. The men went to tri

You visited a heritage site with your classmates and teachers. Describe what you saw and learned from your visit.

Essay on visit to a Heritage Site A heritage site is a landmark or a monument of historical importance. United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) administers such sites. They can help us to learn a lot of things about the history and culture of a place. A Heritage site is not only limited to a monument or a landmark but also includes ancient ruins, structures, buildings, cities, deserts, forests, islands, lakes, mountains, and wilderness areas. Schools and Colleges frequently plan a trip to heritage sites to teach the students about their significance, structure, importance, and features. Heritage sites date back several centuries and help students learn about ancient architecture. Students can also learn about primitive ways of living, culture, and faith by visiting and studying these heritage sites. I recently visited a World Heritage site with my classmates and teachers as a part of my school trip for summer vacation. We visited the Konark Sun Temple

What type of friend would you like to have, someone who is rich, someone who is helpful or someone who is reliable? Describe which are the characteristics that are most important for you and why?

A friend is one of the greatest assets of a human being. He is a companion to whom we can look for assistance and support. He celebrates our joy and consoles us when we are sad. He takes part in our hobbies, encourages us and motivates us. He is the one who cheers us up in our hard times. He has an immense amount of influence on our daily life. A friend is one of the most crucial parts of human life. It is important to decide whom we choose to be our friend, for we tend to implement the behaviours and characteristics of our close ones in ourselves. In this harsh world, finding a good friend is as important as finding a source of income, for a good friend can not only assist us, but he can teach us, guide us, and just like the parents scold us if we ever do something wrong. A good friend can be the most influential mentor in one's life, second only to parents and teachers. I would choose a reliable friend if I had to choose someone rich, helpful or reliable. A "reliable" f

Summers are becoming hotter with each passing year. Write a description of one such very hot day. What did you see and hear as you walked outside? How were birds and animals affected?

Summers are getting hotter with each passing year Essay on "Summers are becoming hotter with each passing year. Write a description of one such very hot day. What did you see and hear as you walked outside? How were birds and animals affected?" India is famous all around the world for its different seasons and extreme as well as pleasant climate. The unique features of the Indian subcontinent are found nowhere else. India mainly experiences five seasons Spring, Summer, Monsoon, Autumn and Winter. Summer is considered the best among other seasons by the Indians, but its popularity is decreasing drastically each day as the temperatures are constantly increasing because of climate change. Summer is when the country experiences most death because of extreme weather conditions. It is becoming unbearable for the people as the day temperatures outside reach 50°C. Summer was often associated with fun and enjoyment, but that is not the case anymore. Summers are one of the most excitin

“Prayer does not change things. It changes people and people change things.” What do you think about the saying? Describe an incident from your personal experience to prove your point.

Prayer does not change things. It changes people Prayer is a form of communication or spiritual practice in which individuals or communities express their thoughts, emotions, desires, gratitude, or supplications to a higher power, deity, or spiritual entity. It is a way to connect with the divine, seek guidance, offer praise, or request assistance. Prayers are performed differently depending on which part of the world one is in. People can perform them by writing, singing, reciting, speaking aloud, or in private in front of a priest. Prayers can be individual or communal, occurring in personal moments of solitude, during religious ceremonies, or as part of organized gatherings. The content of prayer may vary depending on the purpose and beliefs of the person or group offering it. Prayers can encompass many themes, including expressions of gratitude, requests for blessings, forgiveness, healing, protection, guidance, or strength during challenging times. They can also include prayers fo

My First Road Trip

  My First Road Trip "A Road Trip is a long journey on an automobile." The definition in my dictionary reads, but I would like to add much more to it. It is not just a road journey where you enjoy the outside scenery while you sit inside your car or where you can enjoy the experience of driving at hundred miles per hour. It is a journey where you form memories with your families and friends; you form deeper bonds with them and enjoy being "social" in the real world and not on social media. Road Trips become more significant in this digital age when youths are getting away from each other and where they have created a different meaning of socialising. It is also one of the reasons why until recently, I have never been on a road trip. It was February of 2022. The weather was bitterly cold, and my final exams had just ended. On the Friday of the third week of the month, my father came home after work as usual, and out of the blue, he announced to us that he and his fri

Imagine that you were all alone at home on a winter night. Suddenly there was thunder, lightning and heavy rain. There was no electricity, and the inverter in your house stopped working. Narrate how you felt and what you did at that time.

An image of a house in winter covered with snow Staying alone at home is the experience every teenager craves to get once. It is a different adventure, for you can do whatever you want, like playing games at high volumes, running all around the house, and exploring the restricted parts like the garage and basement. But as the saying goes, "The biggest adventure does not take long to become the greatest nightmare". Something like this happened to me recently when I had gone to stay in my father's childhood home for the winter holidays in Himachal Pradesh. My grandfather built the house in the small and sparsely populated yet beautiful village of Kangra. We often choose it as our tourist destination because of its heavenly landscapes and majestic mountains. We headed there this time not just to spend the holidays but also to attend the marriage ceremony of my cousin. I had a severe stomach ache on the wedding day, so my parents had to leave me at home and go to the wedding.

“Every person must have some skill in life.” Describe an important skill that you are learning, giving the various advantages that will accrue to you after learning it.

Skills are one of the most crucial things for a person's development. Every individual must have it. Skills make a person unique from the masses. In today's competitive world, having at least one skill becomes essential. Skills like time management, critical thinking, and writing can be helpful for students to excel in their studies. They can also help to make a good impression in front of the employers. Employers prefer candidates having skills with less academic performance over those with no skills but high academic performance. Skills can significantly improve the quality and efficiency of the work, as someone with leadership skills can head a project or a department effortlessly. Skills can help an individual to adapt to different challenges faced during their lifetime. Skills are of several types, like reading, teamwork, and communication, but writing is the most significant. I am currently learning to improve my writing skills. I believe the ability to write and convey m

Printed Books are Better than E-Books

PRINTED BOOKS ARE BETTER THAN E-BOOKS Books are one of the largest sources of knowledge. Besides giving information, they also improve vocabulary, reading, and imagining skills. Books also help in developing a perspective for a particular topic or viewing it from a different one. Ernest Hemmingway, renowned American novelist and short story writer, once said: There is no friend as loyal as a book Books let us travel throughout the planet, different worlds and even outer space without lifting our feat. "A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies". He experiences adventure, joy, fear, pain, and sadness through the author. Many cultures encourage students to read books from an early age. In Indian culture, students were required to read the lessons, learn and understand by heart after the teachers had completed them. There are endless advantages to reading books. Books are of different genres like mystery, adventure, fiction, history, non-fiction, horror, etc. Some provide i

Population in India - Is it Good or Bad for the 5th Largest Economy?

Population refers to the total number of humans, animals, or plants inhabiting a particular place, region, state or country. According to the United Nations Population Report, India is expected to surpass China to become the most populous country by the middle of this year, with an overwhelming population of 1.42 billion. This essay will list some of the many merits that the fifth-largest economy and the world's largest democracy can have with this large population. People are the backbone of a nation. A decreasing population is often disastrous and is one of the main faction that leads to the collapse of the nation. On the other hand, a larger population is not a burden but an important asset for the country. They can boost the economy, generate new innovative ideas, bring in foreign investments, and spread the culture to other regions. If there are more people, they will compete with each other for jobs and work to improve their skills and knowledge thus the country will have ski

Population in India - Is it Good or Bad for the 5th Largest Economy? Submission 2

Population in India, a curse or boon? India, with a population of almost 1.42 billion is already the 2nd most populous country in the world. It has already overtaken the former ruler of the world, the Great Britain (UK), and claimed the position of the 5th largest ecomony in the world. According to the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), "At current prices and exchange rates, therefore, India will be a USD 3.7 trillion economy in 2023, maintaining its lead over the UK as the fifth largest economy of the world." As the upcoming Superpower, India looks forward to develope every sector and increase its contibution to the global commerce. China, being the most populous country in the world with a population of almost 1.46 billion, has been the "sweet poison" for all the countries around the globe, has proclaimed itself as the next world leader and is the toughest competitior to India. Over the decades, China, under the dictatorship of Xi Jinping has gained extreme dependence m

Population in India - Is it Good or Bad for the 5th Largest Economy? Submission 1

India is currently the world's first-most populous country, with a population of over 140.76 crores people. While a growing population can bring positive effects on an economy, such as increased workforce and consumer demand, it can also strain resources and put pressure on infrastructure. Therefore, the impact of population growth on the 5th largest economy is a topic of debate among economists, policymakers, and the public. a larger population can provide India with a larger workforce, which can lead to increased production and economic growth. With a growing population, India can also have a larger consumer base, which can drive demand and stimulate economic activity. Additionally, a larger population can lead to more innovation and creativity, as there are more people contributing ideas and solutions to problems. The youthful population in India can be an asset in the form of the demographic dividend, where a higher proportion of working-age individuals can boost the economy

Narrate an experience that shows appearances can be deceiving

A person standing in the railway station dressed in a good looking attire It is a common habit of humans to make judgements at the first look. It does not matter if we are seeing a person or a thing for the first time, our minds do not need to take a second look before coming to a judgement. If we look at a person, we quickly look at his clothes and shoes and come to the assumption that he is poor or rich. The same is the case with things, we decide for ourselves whether a substance is expensive or cheap just by its glittering and glistening. Over time, many learned personalities have taught us to "not judge a book by its cover." Through his various plays and writing, William Shakespeare, the popular eighteenth-century English writer, has sent the message to not fall for outward appearances. I have recently expereinced an incident that explains why is it important to not rely on just outward appearances to make a judgement about a person. I was travelling by train during my s

Essay on Euthanasia and How to Deal with It

Euthanasia means ending one's life to relieve suffering. It is also known as "mercy killing." It is usually performed on patients suffering from a disease or an injury for years, and their way of living is highly affected by those sufferings. It is also a way of reducing the burden on the family when they cannot afford the costly medicines needed for the remedy of the disease or illness. It is not limited to humans. Many pets-owners go with the difficult option of euthanasia or mercy killing to end the suffering of their beloved pets. Euthanasia is a tough decision, and dealing with its aftermath is difficult. If someone close to you has voluntarily opted for euthanasia or has been suggested by the doctor to go with the option, it can be hard to deal with the situation. It should be understood that the person or pet is suffering from excruciating pain or incurable diseases. It is good to grieve the loss of a loved one, but you should not grieve forever and move on from th

A message to our friends in Israel

Today is the 19th day since the Israel-Hamas conflict started. Hamas terrorists attacked Israel on October 7. The militants, who are most active in Gaza fired around 2,200 rockets from the small strip of land on October 7, and thousands of Hamas fighters breached the borders and entered Israel slaughtering around 1,400 Israelis in the nearby towns and murdering 200 in the open music festival. Images and videos have appeared online showing how horrifically Hamas monsters have killed families, children, women, and even newborns.  Their actions are so cruel that no punishment is enough.  There have been many wars on this land and history has seen many barbarous scenes committed by the invaders. Human Beings evolve and we should evolve from these ravageous actions. We are walking towards becoming a civilized society, working towards a more humane approach. Wars are not wrong. Some are fought to uphold justice and truth, but most are fought because of the ego, desire for power, and wealth o

Microsoft now asks you the reason if you download "another browser" from Edge

Edge is now asking questions about why you are downloading a new browser from the Edge. Microsoft released its latest modern version of Edge browser in 2020 soon after which it discontinued providing support for one of the major browsers Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer 11 was the last major update given by Microsoft. Since the release of Microsoft Edge, there has been fierce competition between Microsoft and Google for attracting users to their browsers. Microsoft Edge comes with several unique features which you cannot be able to find but Chrome, but Google Chrome ranks at the top for the user's choice of browser. Microsoft had a history of recommending its Edge browser to its Windows users and requesting them to switch to Microsoft Edge as the default browser.  But recently, it was reported by The Verge  that Edge is now asking questions about why you are downloading a new browser from the Edge. For the last 2 years, it has been recorded Microsoft keep annoying its users by

Israel slams UN Secretary-General António Guterres remarks about Israel-Hamas Conflict

There is an outrage after UN Secretary-General António Guterres justified the October 7 Hamas attack on Israel by saying that there is a reason for the attack which Hamas carried out. “It is important to also recognize the attacks by Hamas did not happen in a vacuum,” Guterres said at a UN Security Council meeting on the Israel-Hamas war, which started when the terror organisation attacked Israeli border communities, killing more than 1,400 people, almost all of them civilians. “The Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation. They have seen their land steadily devoured by settlements and plagued by violence; their economy stifled; their people displaced and their homes demolished. Their hopes for a political solution to their plight have been vanishing,” Secreatary-General Guterres said. Guterres added that “the grievances of the Palestinian people cannot justify the appalling attacks by Hamas. And those appalling attacks cannot justify the collective
