Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…

When you see your content being infringed by other sites and social media platforms?

Today, copyright violation has become a big issue and sometimes, we wake up to see our content which we made after hard efforts is being stolen by some other site or social page by removing your copyright info from it. These online thieves are so daring that they don't fear anything while manipulating your hard work. Because of such online thieves, you sometimes land up sending hundreds of copyright infringement notices. 

Thankfully, all the leading platforms like blogger, Google, Facebook, and Pinterest, do take action by removing these contents. However, I feel that we need a more productive system which can make it difficult for such people to steal our genuine content. The Internet can't be restricted by the borders and it comes under different rules in the different countries. Therefore, many people try to get the advantage of international borders to steal the content. 

I am not only worried about the international thieves but also about the people of my own country who ev…
