Easter Island - Mysterious Stone Statues (Vol 2 Hidden Worlds)

I decided to write a series of articles on the lesser know places in the world and I gave it the name Hidden World. In this series, I shared with you information about a lesser known tiny Island nation, Niue. Through this article, you come to know about this tiny but very beautiful island situated 2400 KM away from New Zealand. 

This series also represents my list of top places around the world which I will like to visit if I gets a chance to visit them. Today, I will share with you second place of this list which is Easter Island, which is a world heritage site declared by UNESCO for its 887 large stone statues known as Moais. Some of these statues are erected in a line while others are lying half-buried in different parts on the island. 



These stone statues are very unique in nature and we don't find similar statues anywhere around the world. These statues are created from volcanic rocks between 1100 to 1680. Today, some of the stone statues are clearly visible while others are pa…

Hard Work Always Pays - Success Mantra 9

In the last article on Success, we discussed the importance of patience in life to attain success. Today, I will talk about Hard work and how hard work always pays. 

Hard work is a key ingredient for success because it is hard work which makes you perfect for something and finally, helps you achieve something big in life.  However, lots of people want to achieve success in without putting hard work. Some people give an excuse for not doing hard work that smart work gives success and not hard work. 

It may seem true when we are concentrating on the smaller goals of the life; however, no one can or ever achieved greater success in life without putting hard work. So, if you want to achieve big in life, then you can't run away from hard work because it is only hard work which opens new doors for you.

There is a very inspirational story of a person named Dasrath Manji, popularly known as a mountain man, who single-handedly cut off a mountain to make a way through it. It took him 22 years …

Why Blind Faith and superstition are so much Prevalent in India?

From my childhood, I was noticing one thing among people that blind faith and superstition are very common in most parts of India. The blind faith in people is so strong that they don't want to accept the truth even it is brought in front of their eyes. After spending so many years of my life, I still find many people highly dipped in blind faith and superstition. Blind faith can be of many types and it can be on fake Babas, orthodox beliefs or black magic. 

I hope that nobody must have forgotten the women hair cutting episode reported from many parts of India. This news recreated a lot of panic among the common people and soon, the number of such news from different parts of India increased. Due to  superstition, people started blaming all this on a witch, and crowd even killed an old woman because they thought she is a witch. 

The recent episode of Baba Ram Rahim is another example of the blind faith of people on fraud Babas. This fake guru was sentenced to 20 years rigorous punis…

How to correctly and Easily Remember Difficult English Words?

Today, English has emerged as a global language because of wide presence of it around the world. Therefore, in countries where English is not a native language, people try to learn English so that they can increase their reach of communication. However, for the people who are born in countries where English is not a native language, it is not an easy task to become proficient in English because of many complexities of English Language and lack of hold on English Vocabulary.  

The First part in speaking or understanding English is to have good knowledge of English words. However, the problem is that there are so many English Words (around 1,70,000 words with new words added every day). So it is very difficult for any person to remember all these words. 

The good news is that no one needs to remember so many words because as per research a person with a vocabulary of 3000 words can read and write 95% of Stuff in English. Therefore, it is not a big task and we all can achieve this much lev…

Are our children safe in Indian Schools?

As a parent, I felt compelled to write this article because for every parent safety of his child is most important thing in this world. Moreover, I don't want that any parent on the earth should go through the pain of losing his child. All parents send their children to school to make their future bright, however, if these schools start taking lives of their children then how they can trust these schools? 

Last month, I wrote an article on Increasing Trend of Private Schools in India, through this article, I tried to point out few things like Commercialisation of Education and failure of Government Schools in India. Today, my focus is on the safety of innocent children in these high profile private schools. In recent times, many incidents came to light where children either suffered a fatal accident at school or some school employ physically harassed them (including incidences of rape). 

Yesterday's incident of Brutal murder of a 2nd class student (7 Yrs old) of high profile Sch…

Population Bomb is much more dangerous than the Atomic Bomb

After the recent Atomic bomb tests by North Korea, we heard strong condemnation of these tests from all major countries in the world. We, people, remain highly worried about the Nuclear bombs because of their high devastation powers but on of the other hand, we are ignoring a much serious bomb which is constantly exploding around us. This bomb is population bomb and it is slowly affecting the whole world, but, sadly we are still not serious about it. 

Uncontrolled growth of human population is slowly creating many geological problems by increasing fight for land and better living standards. Like the microbes, we are doubling our self and putting more pressure on the available resources on the earth. If human population bomb is not stopped then it will cause many problems for the mankind and it will cause much more devastation than a nuclear bomb. 

We can't allow humans to reproduce and live like the microorganisms or animals, therefore, we need a strong policy on the number of child…

Why and how the net wealth of our Legislators increases so many times?

Corruption is a big problem is our country and even after so many years of independence, we have failed to stop it. Today, corruption has so well integrated itself into our system that it is not an easy task to remove it. People who do corruption are so shameless that they don't bother what others say or how their corruption affects the country. 

Yesterday, Supreme Court of India ordered the central government to give the list of all member parliaments whose net wealth increased exceptionally in last few years. As per the ADR (Association of Democratic Reforms) report the net wealth of sitting MPs more than doubled in last 5 years. This report further points out that net wealth of one of current MP increased by 2100%. This is a very serious reports which points out at the high level of corruption in our system. 

Our politicians are our leaders and common people get inspiration from them, but When our leader are corrupt, then what we can expect from their followers. Today, most of po…

Death of a senior journalist is an attack on the Freedom of Speech

Yesterday, I was shocked to hear the news of murder of a senior Indian journalist Gauri Lankesh. I strongly believe on the principle that everyone has the right to express his thoughts and this is the guarantee given to us by our constitution. In my last article on similar issue, Why Freedom of Press needs to be maintained at any cost? I expressed similar concerns. 

Press is one of the pillars of a true democracy and by destroying this pillar, we are only making life tougher for ourself and others. Before, this episode I never heard about her or nor got any chance to read articles written by her. But still I feel that we need to respect the opinion of everyone even if they are saying something different. 

Intolerance is not good for any good society and if it is not stopped soon then we will create a highly intolerant society. Today, it has become a fashion to kill someone over a trivia issue and we can see it everywhere. The respect for law and it's fear has totally disappeared in …

Are we under Internet Emergency?

When we live under a democratic country, then we expect some rights which will be always protected; however, in last few days, I felt that our right are under great threat and we are slowly becoming a lawless nation with no government to fully take care of us. I feeling very sad while writing this article becuase I didn't expected that this can happen in present India. 

Due to the recent verdict on the one of the controversial self claimed Saint (Baba) Gurmeet Ram Rahim,many parts of north India are facing internet emergecny with either internet services totally cut off or partially at other places. In the states of Punjab and Haryana, mobile internet is completetly off while partial braodband internet is working. 

Today, I am writing this post under similar internet emergency with no mobile internet (2G, 3G or 4G) and only hope is bsnl broadband connection which is allowing me post my views but I can't see them live because most of sites are not opening. This is first time when…

Threat of Running External (third party) JavaScripts on your website

Up to now, it is very common to use Java Scripts on the websites to run various applications or features which can't be hosted on your server. Among bloggers, the usage of Java Scripts is very common because they allow them to add many good features to their blogs so that readers of the blog can have a good experience. Therefore, most of the bloggers' user many external Java Script codes developed by external developers to add extra features to their blogs and these codes starts with tag < script> and ends with < /script>. Even Google Adsense ads are shown on the blogs with the help of similar Java Scripts. 


Why Java Scripts gained so popularity? 

Java Scripts become popular in the last decade because they allow web owners to host a file somewhere else and run it on another site by adding a simple one or two line code. Mostly, bloggers are not so good in coding so they look for external help to make their blogs user-friendly. Many external developers and web companie…

Why women are still not safe in India?

India has grown in many sectors and we are slowly moving towards development in all walks of life. Education and awareness level among the people has increased many times in recent past. Therefore, today we can hope for a better and safer surrounding for everyone in India including women. But sadly that is not true in India because our track record in women safety is very poor. Crimes against women are so common that we constantly hear such news where a woman is targeted for being a female. 

The Recent case of stalking from Chandigarh is another reminder that women are not safe even in the safest city in India. This case is about Varnika Kunda, a girl from Chandigarh, who was returning home alone late night in her car when she was chased and harassed by two men who even tried to abduct her. However, it was her presence of mind that she called police immediately and kept driving her car. The sad thing is that the one accused in Vikas Barala, son of a strong BJP leader Subhash Balra.

Increasing trend of Private Schools in India

In India, commercialisation of education has increased many times; therefore, the numbers of private schools have increased rapidly. The main reason behind this increase is a poor performance by government schools and fast catching concept of English medium school. 

Most of the middle and lower class families see good education as the only solution to make a good future for their children because they themselves blame their illiteracy and non-ability to speak English as the main reason behind their poverty. Therefore, they don't want the same thing happens to their children too so they spent hard earned money on the child education and sometimes, this money is as high as 60% of their total income. 



So, you can see yourself how people are ready to do anything to provide good education to their children. To exploit this opportunity many private schools have come into play and they charge very high school fees. There are many private schools in India where the monthly school fee is abo…

Moving sites From Http to Https (Need of the hour)

Last week three of my websites come under a cyber attack and started redirecting people to spammy websites. Things come to my notice within few hours and I took all my sites down as a precautionary measure. After proper inspection of the site code, I found that this was caused an external third party Javascript, which I added to make it easy for users to share my site content on social media. So, I immediately removed the code causing this problem from my sites and even decided to remove many of such other external codes to make my sites more secure and safe for readers.

I decided to took it further and shifted all my domains to a secure server so that they can remain secure in the challenging cyber world. Now all my domains and sites are served over the https and it doesn't allow others to steal the user's data or harm users. Initially, https sites were developed for the sites where financial transaction take place; however, due to the ever increasing cyber attacks, it has b…

Pain is very beautiful because it shows you the real path

Pain may seem a just four letter word; however, there is very deep meaning stored in it and only those people can understand it who have gone through some kind of pain. Mostly, we don't like pain and we do everything to avoid it. But still, pains enter our lives to make us a better person by increasing our understanding of life. Pain is much useful and important part of life than success because it makes us a better person while success spoils us. When we get hurt and feel pain then we reach nearer to our real self and discover our hidden powers.

Both happiness and pain are two main important parts of life which help us to live a better life. Mostly we try to ignore the pain part of life and concentrate more on the happiness part; however, we don't understand that life is designed in a way to keep happiness and sorrow main parts of life. Whatever, we may do we can't avoid pain in life and it will somehow enter our life, only we can learn to deal with pain properly. Many ti…

In the Universe we all are same

It is the ego of a person which creates a division in the world and don't allow us to see similarities in all of us. If we compare our earth to the whole universe then it is very-2 tiny; therefore, if we see ourselves on the earth then we are the tiniest creatures living on one the tiniest planet. However, still, we have a very big ego which is even bigger than the whole universe, and because of this reason why we see others different than us.

Why the Condition of Indian Farmer is so Bad and becoming worse with each Passing day?

The above picture is the latest picture of a hilly landless farmer which clearly shows that how many Indian farmers have left behind in the race of life. The Recent killing of 5 agitating farming in police firing in the state of Madhya Pradesh has again highlighted the issue of the bad condition of Indian farmers.

Why Freedom of Press needs to be maintained at any cost?

Today, we are moving towards the world where many politicians and leaders don't want that press should work freely or express things which are against them. To avoid anything which doesn't suit them, they are either trying to control the press or trying to terrorize it. Free Press or Media is one of the main pillars of democracy and if it is destroyed then we can't expect a true democracy.  However, sadly some of the world leaders are moving in the wrong direction by cutting the powers of press and media.

A well Entertaining and Romantic movie - Half Girlfriend (Review)

Yesterday, I did the review of movie "Beauty and the Beast" and today, It is time for recently released Hindi Film "Half Girlfriend" which is based on the famous novel of Chetan Bhagat of the same name. Any good film first needs a good story and this story is already a big success and liked by millions of people. The second step was to make a good film on a good story because there are many examples of bad films made on the good stories available. Here Mohit Suri did a great job and presented a well entertaining and romantic movie in front of us.

Why 99% of people fail to find True Happiness in life?

Happiness is the main thing behind which the whole world is running; however, only a few lucky people succeed in finding it. A majority of people never succeed in finding true happiness and died as sad souls. Do you know the answer that why it is so and Why so many people fail in finding happiness? The answer is very simple that they search for the Happiness at the wrong place. For whole life, they run behind the people, things, and wealth that they get no time to understand that these things are essential but they don't have the power to make us happy.

Beauty and the Beast (2017) - A wonderful Movie (Review)

Yesterday, I got a chance to watch Disney's movie "Beauty and the Beast" released earlier this year. Disney is known to make many such movies based on classic love stories which take everyone to a fantasy world. Though, the story of the movie was already known to me; however, still, I enjoyed watching it. It was a wonderful classic love story which highlights the strong and weak points of an every human being. I believe that there exist both beautiful and ugly parts inside a human being and our whole life is a struggle to find the real part.

Are you asking from the right person?

It is common in life to ask for help or advice from others; however, many times we don't get the positive reply and it makes us sad. Here we need to ask ourselves this question, "Are you asking from the right person? Because if we are asking for help or advice from a wrong person then definitely we will not get a positive reply. In life, we need to learn to identify the people from whom we can ask for something because there are large numbers of people around us who are either unwilling to help us or they don't have the wisdom to give us any advice.

It takes a time to be Successful - Patience - Success Mantra 8

It is very important for any person to become successful in life because unsuccessful people are not treated well in the world. Therefore, I am sharing these articles with you so that your success journey becomes easy. Last time, you learned the skill of listening in Success Mantra 7 - Importance of Listening and today, I will introduce you to another Success Mantra which is very useful for attaining success.

Be True to YourSelf and this is the only person who will never leave you

Being true to yourself is the best gift you can give to yourself because the person with whom we spend our whole life is we ourselves. In our life journey, many people come and go but our inner self never changes. Therefore, we first need a strong bond with our inner self because it is you are in reality. But, sadly most of the time we ignore our real self for the sake of people who come into our lives for some time only. We keep on thinking about these people even after they are not part of our lives. We keep on wasting precious time of our lives on such people for whom we even don't exist.

Decreasing water level in the lakes of India (Water Crisis)

Water is very important for the survival of human beings; however, due to the abundance of water on the earth, we mostly take it guaranteed and don't do efforts to save it. With the increase in population and damage to natural water sources, many parts of the world are facing acute water scarcity. First news of receding water levels in the Sukhna lake came to my notice and now, I heard about the famous Nainital lake drying up fast in the Uttarakhand state of India (at present water level in the Nainital Lake is 18 feet below than the normal).

Very Powerful OM Chanting/Meditation at Frequency 417 Hz (Tested by Me)

In the last post on Power of Mantras, I discussed Mahamrityunjaya Mantra and how we can remove negative energies from our life with it. Today, we will talk about OM Mantra and its powers. You must have heard a lot about the OM mantra and its powers. There is much information available online where the power of OM mantra is demonstrated and popular example is where a baby sleeps after listening OM chanting.

Positive Thinking - Success Mantra 5

In the Success Mantra series of articles, I am trying to make it easy for you to understand what is a real success and how you can get it. All these articles tell you about the skills which are very essential for attaining a true success in life. In the last article Success Mantra 4 - Time Management and Success, I talked about the importance of time management and how it is impossible to attain success in life without time management. Today, we will learn about positive thinking and how it is very useful for success. 


Success Mantra 2 - Good Health (You can only enjoy life if you have good health)

In the lesson 1 of Success Mantras, we tried to define success in a broader manner so that we don't associate success to the few things like money and fame only. Real success is much deeper oriented and it is related more to you than to the world. In the lesson 1, we came to the conclusion that health is the most important factor when it comes to being successful in life and without good health, we can't enjoy any success in life. 

Appeal to adopt animals and birds at Zoos

In the last articles on Zoo, Do we need Zoos or not?, I discussed in detail that we need zoos or not. In this article, it comes out that Zoos have become an essential part of our system and they are doing lots of good jobs by conserving many endangered species of animals and birds. Already, we humans have destroyed most of the original habitats of many species of wildlife and many such species are in the shelters of zoos for their safety and survival. However, there is a financial crisis looming on such Zoos and they need the support of common people to adopt some of birds or animals at the Zoos. 

Are you a working slave?

We all do lots of things in this world to make money and to work somewhere is one of the most important things in this list because by working, a large majority of people earn money to sustain their lives. From a bottom to top, we have all kinds of jobs for all classes of people according to their skills and education. However, the truth is that everyone works for money. We work and so, we get paid and this continues. Every day, we wake up, get ready and reach our offices or destinations of work to finish the work assigned to us. This circle keeps on repeating itself every day till we get retired. During this journey, people may get promoted or given additional perks; however, still, they don't stop working. 

Life is all about Moving on and finding New opportunities

In life, we will be happy or sad, it totally depends on our attitude towards life. If we keep on looking back and don't allow ourselves to come out the miseries of the past, then, we create continuous unhappiness for us.  This is the problem of many people that they don't try to come out of the past. At some point in time, we all need to bury our past to make a new and fresh start. If we don't bury our past, then we will unnecessary carry its weight on our shoulders and it will not allow us to move ahead. 

Daily Thoughts (Quotes) close to my heart (Top Images)

Thanks for liking my post, "Must Read these 10 Quotes when Sad or Depressed", I hope that this post must have provided some relief to you. Today, I will share you some best and top Daily Thoughts (Quotes) close to my heart. In general, I like all the good quotes and thoughts; however, there are few thoughts and quotes which leave behind a strong impression on your mind. Below, you can find the same kind of quotes which have helped to come out of bad times and to focus on my goals. This is my list of best Daily Thoughts, I hope that you will like this post too.

Do you always fail to achieve your goals in life? Why So, here is the answer

In the previous article on Goals, Don't stop before you reach your goals, I shared with you that one should not stop before reaching his goal in life. Today, I will talk about why you fail to achieve your goals. 

Every person in this world has many dreams and goals which he wants to fulfill; however, we all know that only fraction of people succeed in achieving what they wanted to achieve. Why it is so? When so many people have dreams and goals for life, then why only a few of them succeed. Here is the answer, only a few succeed in life because only a few put all efforts to succeed and they have the patience to wait until the end. Most of the people don't do justice to their dreams or goals, they deserve. Whatever, we may say or blame fate or other factors; however, the real ingredient for any success in hard work and continues efforts. You need to have a never to quit attitude towards your dreams or goals if you want to see them fulfilled. But, sadly, most of the people lack t…

Mind Manipulators are all around us, So do save yourself

In the last article on Mind Manipulators "It is important to keep away from people who play with your mind?", I told you that why it is very important to keep mind manipulators away if you want to achieve your own goals and live life of your dreams. Mind Manipulation is a technique used by many people to manipulate the thinking of someone for their own benefits. Mind Manipulators exist around us in so large numbers that you can hardly save yourself from their mind manipulations unless we can recognize them and knows to deal with them. A mind manipulator may be someone living in our own house or someone who is very close us or it may be someone whom we don't know at all. 

Power of Positive Thoughts

In the previous article "Control your thoughts, Control your life", I showed the power of thoughts and today, I will talk about Positive thoughts. We hear so much about the positive thoughts and their power to change our lives. We have many stories available in front of us where people have used positive thoughts to completely change their miserable lives. However, still very less numbers of people use positive thoughts for the betterment of their lives. 

Only love can unite the word

Today we see hatred everywhere due to this reason, we see everyone fighting with each other.  People are finding it hard to have trust others, therefore,  everyone sees everyone with a suspicion.  This is not good if you want to create a good and fearless society. Today fear is the primary force which is driving us.  We are more motivated by fear than by the love.  Love has taken a backseat in society and no one wants to give love a chance. The levels of fear and suspicion are so high that we don't allow love to enter our lives.

Don't stop before you reach your goals

It's very important in life to have some Goals  because they guide us to reach New Heights in life. Without proper goals,  no person  can  accomplish  his dreams.  Sometime life looks so difficult that we become disheartened and start thinking that we will not be able to reach our goals. This day has come in every person’s life and  due to this reason many people  stop making efforts to reach their goals and accept defeat. They didn't realize that failures are also part of life’s journey.  Everyone who achieves his goals, initially go through many failures.

Article Marketing

I have been writing articles for last 12 years and I have seen that articles  are a great method to do Marketing, therefore, many  companies use article marketing to increase awareness about their products or services online. When people read these articles, then they come to know about the products or services and this increases the chances of people using the services or products.

How to find New ideas for Writing?

In the last post, I discussed about How to become a good writer and now we move further with How to find new ideas for writing. Many writers from time to time suffer from a mental block which makes it difficult for them to decide what to write or where they can find the inspiration to write. Writing is an art which is a mix of both your language skills and your ability to think out of the box. It is always better to write something which is useful for the readers and it enhances their knowledge on the topic. However, you can only write better when you feel inspired to write on the topic. 

Sonu Nigam's Controversy over using or not using Loudspeakers at Religious Places

Sonu Nigam, a famous Indian singer, recently tweeted few tweets which created lots of turmoil in media and religious debates. Sonu Nigam tweeted that “God bless everyone. I'm not a Muslim and I have to be woken up by the Azaan in the morning. When will this forced religiousness end in India”, he further said that in another tweet that “And by the way Mohammed did not have electricity when he made Islam.. Why do I have to have this cacophony after Edison?”. Then, he further clarified in next tweet “I don't believe in any temple or gurudwarausing electricity To wake up people who don't follow the religion . Why then..? Honest? True?” that he is not just talking about any single religion.

Never leave a hope life can turn any time

Hope may seem to be a simple four letter word; however, it can become the most powerful word if we learn to use it in our life. It is very important to have hope in life; otherwise, a person can become very weak without any hope. Many people commit suicide because they have no hope of any kind. Therefore, you must stick to hope in your life as much as you can. Also, always tries to give some hope to others too so that they can feel encouraged and positive.
