Teachers Day

Teachers Day

There is a God in disguise everywhere. We are all built, skilled and trained by eminent teachers who keep learning to enrich our brains. As a gratitude to this, we should think it our duty to praise and remember our teachers at least one day in our life.

India is a great place of intelligent students coming out to the society every year. The efforts of many proficient teachers lie behind a successful student. In India, teacher 5th of September is celebrated as Teachers’ Day all across the nation. Worldwide, Teacher’s Day is observed on October 5. However, the date the Teacher’s Day is celebrated varied from nation to nation.

In India, September 5 is observed as Teacher’s Day commemorating the birth anniversary of the Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.  Dr. Radhakrishnan was not only a great scholar and teacher, but also the Vice President and President of Indian republic later.

As for good students, we should pay respect to our teachers on this day. We should always keep in mind that teachers are the pillars of our society. Without them, we cannot imagine a strong student power, good characters in students and high skills in students. Only a good teacher can shape students to ideal citizens of India.

It is our duty to be thankful to our students since they put a lot of efforts in bringing out intelligence. They inject a lot of concepts that we never knew. An efficient teacher brings in improvement in a dull student and brings the best out of that student. Teachers help in making our future bright by showing us the right path and shaping our views.

The whole education system would not work without teachers and we cannot imagine empowering our skills and knowledge without teachers. Teachers insist the importance of education they are the source of inspiration. If you ask any successful student, he or she would first thank the teacher who lit the light of knowledge. There is no need of any role model other than a good teacher. A good teacher stands with us when we stumble and help us understand our abilities. A good teacher gives the confidence that is needed to run a happy life. Success is an easy shot for the one who has the best teacher beside. We can be confident that we have a good friend if we have a good teacher.

There are many more qualities of a teacher that keeps going endless. The only thing that we can give in return to our teachers is leading a successful life. Let us thank our teachers on this day and take a promise that we will make them feel proud one day.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Machines

Advantages and Disadvantages of Machines :

  • Machines help man to reduce his job
  • Machines reduce the time taken to do a job
  • Machines can do the job of more persons in less time
  • But this has increased unemployment in many ways
  • Many unskilled labors are suffering after the improvement in technologies

Advantages and Disadvantages of Machines : (Short Essay)

Life has been tough for man in old ages since any normal work we do today was a big task centuries back. Only after the invention of machines, there has been a change in the living style and companies all across the world. With the help of machines, we can make production in a mass level and the cost of production also is less when compared to manual works. But the same has become a big disadvantage when we think about the joblessness of millions of unskilled labors. Their jobs has been now replaced with machines. This has increased the level of unemployment and poverty in many countries. So, Machines have done both good and bad for what our society today is.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Machines : (Brief Essay)

One of the greatest inventions that has reduced the works of man is Machine. Machines are an extraordinary outcome of Science and Technology that has relieved man from tiring works and heavy tasks.

But, if we look deep into this, Machines have both advantages and disadvantages:

Machines make any task an easy job and they enable Large Scale Production. Many companies today are producing products in large mass with the help of machines. Machines run and fulfill our requirements for years and years. With one time investment, we can have a machine that does great job. A machine just requires maintenance on a regular basis. Because of this the money that is required to pay workers on and on is totally reduced. Machines are totally reliable. A good quality machine gives the promised output in promised time with promised efficiency. When large scale production is possible with less investment in less time, the selling prices of the products also decrease accordingly. As a whole, Machines have become a valuable asset for every company.

In contrast of the same, we can also see the disadvantages inside the advantages themselves. If machines have took over most of the jobs in companies, this means a lot of employees have lost their jobs. Also, a lot of young people will not get jobs because of machines already working their place. Exposure to many machines lead to health issues like respiratory diseases, skin diseases in employees. Many machines emit poisonous gases that pave way to Global Warming and Pollution. Moreover, when we depend much on machines it becomes a great issue or takes much investment when the machines do not work all of a sudden.

Healthy Food vs Junk Food

Healthy Food vs Junk Food :

Food is a vital part of our life. Life is not possible without food. While food is very important in life, what is really important cannot be simply Food, but Healthy Food. Only when we plan what we eat, we can make sure we are running  a healthy life.

We would have heard about saying like:

“An Apple a day keeps the Doctor Away”

“He who takes medicine and neglects to diet wastes the skill of his doctors”

and so on. These sayings insist on the importance of having the right kind of food. Only when we eat the right kind of food in the right amount at the right time, we can lead a healthy life. Only when we have a healthy food pattern every day we can lead a fresh routine on a daily basis.

We might be really wondering that though healthy food is important for a good life, is it possible to eat them alone always. Nowadays, we see a lot of junk foods in most of the restaurants. It is very human to start loving tasty food when compared to healthy food. But keeping ourselves strong towards making ourselves fit by having healthy food is a good habit.

What does healthy food contain?

It might be difficult to accept eating healthy food that is bitter (or) sour (or) spicy. We might feel healthy food is not necessary on a daily basis. But, it is significant to understand that healthy food contains the right amount nutrients, vitamins, minerals and other essentials when had in the right proportion.

A balanced diet will help us  to keep ourselves healthy always in life. Healthy Food not only give essential nutrients, but also generally:

  • Improve our concentration
  • Help in digestion
  • Improve Bowel Movements
  • Help children grow in a more healthy way
  • Prevent Aging
  • Avoid many serious illness and much more

What Does Junk Food Contain?

While healthy food are good in every means, eating junk food lacks all the essential nutrients. Once we eat Junk Food we might feel satisfied and full. But in reality, Junk Food gives us a sleepy feeling which is because the unwanted fat gets accumulated in the inner walls of arteries.

Also, it is very common and known that one of the major problem the world faces because of Junk Food is – Obesity. Studies also prove that even many school children are obese or overweight. Nowadays, school kids also prefer Junk Food over Healthy Food. Children are easily attracted by taste and colorful appearance of the Junk Food. Eating junk food namely:

  • Burger
  • Pitza
  • Wafers
  • Preserved or Canned Food and such other foods are totally unhealthy for the body. Over a period of time, this leads to serious illness and serious diseases. Children eating junk food often lack concentration. It is always good to restrict ourselves from eating Junk Food.

The Great Saint Thiruvalluvar and the Holy Book Thirukural

The Great Saint Thiruvalluvar and the Holy Book Thirukural :

It was nearly 2000 years that our Mother Country was blessed with a born Siddha and born Poet. Named as Valluvar, he thrived in Mylapore, Chennai. Famously known as Thiruvalluvar for his poetic offerings to the world, his name meant ‘the devotee of the Valluva caste’. Thiruvalluvar was born in the capital of Pandyas – Madurai and he was honored and called as an Avatara of Brahma.

History says that Thiruvalluvar’s wife, Vasuki was an ideal for all women. It was said that she never disobeyed her husband and she was considered a virtuous and devoted lady. It was believed that Thiruvalluvar lived a life of purity and sanctity.

The sayings of Thiruvalluvar are all together are in a book that is famously called the “Thirukural”. Each poem is in a couplets (known as “Kural” in Tamizh which has 2 lines – ideally has 7 words; 4 in the first line and 3 in the second line)

There are a total of 1330 couplets couplets which is believed to consist of the core of:

  • The Vedas
  • The Upanishads
  • The Six Darshanas

The couplets are divided into 3 segments namely:

  • Arrathu Paal (Dharma) – which deals with the virtue
  • Porutpaal (Artha) – which deals wealth or polity
  • Kaamathuppaal (Kama) – which deals with love

Thirukkural is regarded as a universal Bible and munificently called the Another “Gita, Koran or Zend Avesta”. Thirukural is considered as the Universal Bible and famously entitled as  “The Three-Chaptered” or “The Three-Sectioned” (Muppaal) which is the original name given by Thiruvalluvar, “Statements Devoid of Untruth” (Poyyamozhi), “The Two-Lined Book” (Iradi Nool), “Northern Veda” (Uttharavedham), “The Tamil Veda” (Tamil Marai) and so on.

Thirukural explains can be called a holy book that helps us to adapt an honest and realistic attitude towards life. It is good to know that Thirukural is not a religious scripture; it does not talk about spirituality or Godly Promises. It gives us a detailed look on our life. With the wise lines in it we can learn ways of cultivating one’s mind to achieve harmony in present life. Thiruvalluvar in most of his couplets simply insists on what we need to do in humanly life in order to reach eternal life.

Like the Bible and Quran, Thirukural is also a great book that is known to be the most translated work in the world. This great Sangam Literature has been translated to more than 80 languages of the world.

It is a well known fact that in order to honor Thiruvalluvar, a 133-feet statue was raised in stone. This great statue of Thiruvalluvar is built on the southernmost Coromandel Coast of the Indian peninsula near the town of KanyaKumari.

No Pain No Gain

No Pain No Gain :

  • No man has attained success without pain
  • It takes a lot of efforts to meet success
  • We should not stop by fearing about pain in life
  • We should overcome all our problems to taste the fruit called success
  • We should always remember “No Pain, No Gain”

No Pain No Gain : (Short Essay)

Anything that we get in life without pain is not real success. If we had heard the famous motto “No Pain, No Gain” we would have also known the results we can see out of hard work and the pain we take to reach success. Great men have showed us path to success is painful but always promising. If we are ready to overcome all the obstacles in front of us we can easily see the door to success. Even when it comes to our exams, only when we work hard to get good marks, we can score well. If we are not so serious about our life, there is no wonder we keep lagging in all walks of life. So, it is always better to accept pain to enjoy success.

No Pain No Gain : (Brief Essay)

There is no such endeavor that comes without efforts. It is the pain we take inside and hard works we give outside that shows us the end results in life.

A very simple example for this is a businessman. Do you think a man who starts business on his own has gained profit immediately? Not all business gives us the results we expect immediately.

A sportsperson is not a famous or favorite star on Day 1. It has taken him or her years and years to become a successful person.

Here comes into context, the famous saying “No Pain, No Gain”. Without pain, a celebrity is not formed. It takes a lot of sacrifice to become a successful person.

Many people stay conservative and create a shell for themselves and stay inside. For such people, it is a great task to reach what they desire. To gain something, we have to come out of the comfort zone. Only when we learn things in the odds of life, we will know how to do something and also how not to do the same thing. We should not get frustrated of trying something again and again. Instead we should remember “Practice makes a Man Perfect”.

It is also a good thing that one who suffers pain is not going to be the same way; after a great pain follows a reward called Gain. We should remember this and be true, honest and patient in order to see the gain despite of the pains it gives in between. After all, remember “Rome was not built in a Day”.

Be Positive

Be Positive :

  • We should always be positive in life
  • Being positive helps us to be confident in all parts of life
  • Positive Thinking leads to sutcess
  • Negative Thinking leads to failure
  • One who is positive can reach great heights in life

Be Positive : (Short Essay)

Success has always been favorable to people who see it in a positive way. Only when we are confident enough to see our path of life we can walk through it. We can see a great light in front of us if we are positive. If we are negative, we always end up living in darkness. We should always remember that Self Help is Best Help. In this context, only by being positive about ourselves we can reach success. If we are negative we will lose hope in the early stage of any problem. Challenges are easy to handle only if take them in a positive way. So, it is great to be positive in life.

Be Positive : (Brief Essay)

We are all surrounded by people who always keep saying take everything in a positive way. But the real problem is knowing how to be positive. As children, it takes time to understand how to be so.

We should develop habits that build our self confidence. This is the first step to be positive in life. When we are given a tough task we should have a positive mental attitude and think how to perform the task than saying that “I Cannot Do This Task”.

We should always try to live in a positive environment. We should follow people with good habits and be around people with good habits. We should also practice good and clean habits.

We should cultivate the habit of thanking anyone who does good to others. By being good to others we develop the great habit of being positive from inside.

Yet another great art of being positive in life is to learn to throw away fear. When we tear the fear from our mind we are able to see things in a new way. We are able to handle situations with great courage. This gives us power to take up any task and succeed easily in life.

It is not enough to help ourselves; we should also lend our hands to others as much as possible. We should also develop the habit of listening. When we listen to others, we learn the other people’s perspective. This again gives us positive energy when we listen a lot to positive people. We can also boost our mind with positive thoughts from great people when we are undergoing tough time.

Above all, to gain positive energy, we have to

  • Exercise Regularly
  • Eat well
  • Sleep Well

Dowry System

Dowry System :

While India is considered a land of deep culture and holistic traditions, the other side of it makes us feel sad too. The deep rooted deep-rooted social evils in our society has influenced many people in all classes till today.  However education has developed, technology has taken over the old living style and working culture has blended communities, a set of people have not at all changed.

Dowry system is one such evil that can even be considered an extreme social atrocity. Money has become a major part of a marriage and this makes marriage a dealing to accept the bride in the family.  Under the Dowry Prohibition Act, Dowry is considered as a demand for property from the bride’s family to the bride groom’s family, which is more or less an agreement to marry the bride.

The practice of giving and demanding dowry has been a part since many years in the society. People have not realized that sooner of later this atrocity is capable of  breaking the bonds inside a family.

It is a shame on our country that despite so many laws promogulated by the Government has promulgated we are still not free from this sick system. Dowry system should be fully eradicated from our country. Though people are educated the thought deep inside them needs to be redefined. Educating people on the drawbacks of social atrocities is much important in eradicating Dowry System from India. There are two ways of doing it. Educating men on what they should not do when it comes to Marriage. Men who are getting married should be clear that Marriage is a bond of love and happiness; not money. Only when the person who is directly involved is made aware, we can find a solution to the problem of Dowry System.

One another way to meet the curse called Dowry System is to educate women on what they are capable and they are not toys that are sold and paid at the same time. A woman, whether she is literate or illiterate, poor or rich, young or old should learn that Dowry system is an evil and encouraging it by accepting what is happening around is a crime. Women from all corners of the country should unite and question people who exploit them.

This will not happen immediately, but for gradual changes, we should support:

  • Women Empowerment
  • Women Education
  • Equal Rights for Women in all places

Only when the society starts an accepting a girl child as it does with a boy child, can this problem be solved. We should not expect the whole country to change; better is start changing ourselves so that we can all together light up the darkness one day.
