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

Gauri, Lankesh,

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 people; therefore, they don't think once before taking law in their hands or killing someone. 



The dream of a true democracy can only be fulfilled when we allow everyone to freely express their opinions or thoughts. Any democracy fails when it can't protect its vulnerable and weak people. In a democratic country, we can't force the opinion of majority on the minority or on the weakest of society. 

We need to again generate trust of the people on the law so that they don't take law in their hands. We need to increase our tolerance level so that we can make everyone comfortable in this country. Restoring to killing for shouting the voice of a person is the worst cowardly thing to do. 

I love to express my opinion and thoughts, but also love to respect the opinion of others. Today, time has come when we should become more tolerant. If we don't like someone's opinions or we feel that his or her writing is causing some damage to society, then we can reach the law because it is the duty of judiciary to address such matters. 

By self deciding the fate of others or by killing them, we are presenting the baddest of example every presented by someone.

Katoch clan is a name of one of the ruling caste from India. Katoch is a prominent Rajput (Kshatriyas) caste of India and they basically belong to Chandravanshi Rajput clan. Katochs have the main predominance in the states of the Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, and Jammu. Katoch means a good skillful swordsman and earlier, Katochs were known for their sword skills.

Few of great and famous kings of this clan were king Porus who fought against King Alexander, King of Kangra Sansar Chand Katoch under whom Katoch kingdom flourished and saw his golden period and Rajanaka Bhumi Chand who founded Katoch dynasty.

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.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

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…

Why people migrate from Villages to Big cities? Cost of living in Big Cities and Side effects

Around the world, big cities have become a great reality and today, our major pollution lives in these big cities. Moreover, the expansion of these cities is still on with migration of more people from villages to big cities.
The major reason for the migration of people from villages and small towns to big cities is the availability of employment.
Employment is one of the major needs of every individual because through it he can earn money to live a comfortable life.
Big cities offer an abundance of employment opportunities for different classes of society. From a highly educated person to a laborer, everyone can find a good job in a big city because of good demand of such services. Therefore, many people who migrate to such big cities settle permanently in these cities and increase the size and population of such cities.

Does the effect of coronavirus is overrated?

Today, we see the whole of the world gripped in the fear of coronavirus that some of the countries have even crippled. There is no doubt that coronavirus is a new and deadly virus and; we don’t have any cure available to fight this virus. However, still, the effects of this virus are overrated and we fear too much from it. People around the world fear so much from coronavirus that they think that its end is near. In the recent post, does the whole world die because of the coronavirus outbreak? I have tried to highlight this issue.
It is clear that it is a deadly virus and we need to take all precautions to fight it; however, fearing too much from it is not a good idea. The death rate from this virus is already much-much less than many other diseases present in our world and this virus is more dangerous for the people who are already at the risk. The steep fall in stock markets across the world also show this nature of the world that we are losing all hopes.
All this is happening becaus…
