This way we can give our coming generations a good environment to breathe.

India at Commonwealth Games 2018 and 2010

Commonwealth games 2018, blog , review

India has been doing well in the Sports for last few years at International level. Who can forget the wonderful memories of Commonweath Games held in India. Now is the time to see the rocking performances of our athletes in the Commomwealth Games 2018 in Australia.

Meet Borobee – Your guide for CWG 2018

This time the Commonweath Games are being held at Gold Coast , Australia from 4 April to 15 April. There was a tough competition between Hambantota (Sri Lanka ) and Gold Coast City( Australia ) but the Gold Coast City won by getting 43 votes compared to 27 for Hambantota.

Commonwealth games, blog, india , review, performance

Opening Ceremony of CWG 2018

There was a grand Opening Ceremony held at Carrara Stadium, officially opened by Charles, Prince of Whales. There are around 71 nations  participating  in 275 events. P.V. Sindhu was the flag bearer for India in the opening ceremony.

Performance of India in CWG 2018

Since we have entered in the last phase of the events , let’s see India’s performance so far: India has won  total 29 medals which include 14 Gold, 6 Silver and 9 bronze medal till date. The maximum medals are won in Shooting i.e. 12 followed by Weightlifting with 9 medals.

The performance of women needs an appreciation as they have won 7 gold medals with the total of 13 out of 29 medals.Men have done well by getting 15 medals .

Few of the names to be mentioned here are Sushil Kumar  in Men’s Freestyle 74 kg wrestling and Rahul Aware in 57kg . In Shooting , Shreyasi Singh , Heena Sidhu , Jitu rani,Poonam Yadav are few to mention here.

Future Events:

Indian hockey played in Commonwealth games

Winning Moments for Indian hockey team

As hockey is our national game , we must look forward to get some medals. Women’s hockey team has played well but lost the chance to win bronze medal. Men’s hockey team has entered in the Semifinals. They have to face New Zealand  in Semi finals.

Let’s pray for them to come out as a winner.

Comparison between 2010 and 2018 Commonwealth games

It is difficult to compare the performance in both the Commonwealth games because the confidence goes to the next level when the host is your country. The crowd around you is so motivating , hence  you get bound to show your best. You put all your efforts to bring laurels to your country.

It was the first time in the history of Commonwealth Games India won 38 golds and more than 101 medals in 2010. It is not difficult to achieve the same rather more than that but we have to think how we take this Games.

Why not this time ?

Unfortunately, in India sports have never been given due importance . We want our kids to become doctors , engineers but not sports person. The life of a sportsmanis considered very hard and full of struggles.

People like you and me have to encourage our children to play games whole heartedly. Government has to play a major role in this . Many names which are shinning  today at this event will be lost in the coming years. Few lucky ones will survive for few months and then, they will become the history.

Role of media can also not be denied as they can run all the non sense news throughout the day as a Breaking news while the positive news are ignored as they can’t increase their TRP.

There is time to think above all these things and take a strong move towards building a nation which is much more capable of  doing this.

Common wealth games 2018,blog , review

Give some recognition to all those who are winning medals for the country so that feel proud to share their story with coming generation. We  are a country which has talent in every nook and corner hidden under the layers of soil.

Gear up to remove those layers of soil to bring that talent to the world.

Jai Hind , Jai Bharat

Different Personalities around us in the society

Human beings are social animals,that, they can’t survive without society. The society comprises people around us. Since morning till night, from Monday to Sunday, years after years we meet lot of people.

The people around me and you are almost similar in many charactersitics or we can say that they have same kind of personality.

PERSONALITY

Personality

According to the dictionary , 

It is a combination of characterstics or qualities that form individual’s distinctive character.

Some of these traits are inherited and some are accquired through the kind of enviornment they are living in.Personality defines what kind of person you are.

INFUENCE OF DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES ON US

You can’t deny the fact that people around us have lot of impact on us as it is rightly said

A PERSON IS KNOWN BY THE COMPANY OF PEOPLE HE IS SURROUNDED BY.

The most difficult things can be achieved easily if you are surrounded with people having positive attitude. This become worse to worst if you can’t understand the basic nature or personality of a person you are living with.

Person

DIFFERENT TYPES OF PERSONALITIES AROUND US

let’s see the faces of some personalities who keep revolving around most of us. Some of you may have encountered whilefew of these or may meet soon in future.

EASY GOING PEOPLE :

Personality

Take it easy

These are the people whose personality does not change as per situation. They react towards all the situation in a same manner always. Their basic traits remain same and are emotionally strong. They don’t take things to the heart and remain calm. Take it easy ,dear is their attitude towards life.

OPPORTUNISTS :

Opportunitist personalities

These are the people who always seek oppourtunity in each and every situation. They have an ability to change the things according to their need. They know how to crack the situation for their benefit. You may or may not be knowing what they are planning for you .

EASILY INFUENCED :

giphy.gif

This category is for those who have low esteem. They lack confidence and depend on others for decision making. They are emotionally weak and can’t control their emotions. Hence, get easily influenced by the people around them. They are easy prey for others.

MASKED PERSONALITY :

tumblr_o4bvzvi95q1tuxm3lo1_250.gif

These are the most difficult to understand. They know how to hide the emotions and feelings behind the face. They can also be called as FLAT FACED as they carry same expressions throught the day. NO SMILES NO WORRIES. They do not get easily attached with other and have few friends. They are always in their own world.

EMOTIONAL FOOLS :

Emotional fools personality

These are the ones who are always ready to help. They can’t see others in trouble. They are ready to extend their helping hands despite of knowing the fact that this can lead them to trouble. Such people , many a times, lose their money because the other person know that he/she will not say no to me when he/she see me in trouble. They easily fall in love and later cry.

These are few to mention. There may be many more waiting for you and me. Just now I am thinking in which category do I fall in.!!

5 Things In My Travel Bag

Where the sun covers  the crown with silver
And the sand makes the golden path
Where the sound of rivers crosses my ears
I would like travel there with you
And with my travel bag !!!

If you are a traveller, you can understand my these poetic words well and the importance of the last line.
There is one thing which always accompany us , is a travel bag, either you are travelling alone or with your partner. You can’t imagine a trip without your travel bag . Can you ? Definitely not !

Travel, travel bag, things required for travelling

What excatly do you carry in your travel bag? The answer may vary from person to person but there are few things which you will find in every traveller’s bag such as camera, some dry snacks, a cap apart from passport , clothes etc. Once you are out from your place,it is really difficult to go back and get the things. So , pack your bag carefully and keep all the necessary things otherwise be ready to face hard time.(I have already face a lot of trouble due to this carelessness, which I will tell you later in the post)

5 Things in my travel bag:

1. Sunscreen and moisturiser :  

Who can challenge the Sun? No one , specially if you love your skin. I always carry a  suncreen to protect my skin. It’s SPF depend on the place I am visiting. I prefer high SPF when visiting a beach to avoid sunburn.

2. Phone charger and battery bank:  

I can’t afford to forget this. I remember when I paid more than double the price of my phone charger. I always carry my battery bank too because while visiting the different places in the city, you never know when does the battery of your phone say good bye ?

My travel essentials, travelling,

My travel essentials- sunscreen and mobile accessories

3. A pair of Sunglasses : 

I love my Raybans as it protects my eyes from sunrays and made me look smarter too.( as my friends say)

4. Basic make up essentials:

 I don’t like heavy make up. A simple BB cream, blusher, an eyeliner and  lipstick with some wet tissues are enough for me. You can also find my favourite deo in my bag. Don’t get surprised if you see an after shave as my better half always tell me to put it in my bag only. I think I can do this much for my love.

Education17048.wordpress.com, travelling, make up essentials

My travel essentials- shades, make up accessories and sling bag

5. A small side bag:

I always put a small sling bag in my travel bag so that I carry few of the important things in it while going out of the hotel for city tour. It is must for a traveller.

I am really curious to know what is in your travel bag ?

Have a date with my Coffee Love

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Life is full of ups and downs and we keep on looking around for positivity , inspiration , happiness and reasons to celebrate.

We feel sad when no one is around to cheer us up. It’s then you need to ignite your passion with the company of your favourite food and drink. Believe me , it works and you start enjoying your own company.

Whenever I feel depressed ,unmotivated and my energy levels go down , there is something which rejuvenates me and makes me feel better. It not only gives a company but brings my innerself out.

That is A Date –

 A date with my love, my Coffee.

Coffee, super blogger challenge

I love to have a coffee in any form – hot or cold. If I get a company, its good, if not , I alone can enjoy my cup of coffee.
It is a big stress buster for me. Even the recent studies have proved that drinking a few cups of coffee is  good for our health.

History of  Coffee

Do you  know who discovered coffee and how did it reach to us ? The answer is  really interesting . It was not discovered by a well know historian or scientists or any researcher. It was discovered by a shepherd. Watch this video showing it’s origin and a brief history of coffee.

Good News for the coffee lovers

Recent studies have shown that if we drink coffee in limit and without sugar and without milk or with less milk, it boosts the health of our heart and also helps in preventing lung cancer , Parkinson disease and diabetes-2 also.

Coffee-A best friend for some

Many times I go to cafe to order coffee and have seen many people standing in a cue and thinking of their order of coffee. I think there is only a few number of people who know the real difference between types of coffee though they are well conversant with their names like Expresso , cappuccino , latte or Mocha. These are only few names to mention.

Types of Coffee in the World

There are more than 20 kinds to coffee in the world. There are many kinds of coffee beans grown but most of the coffees are prepared from mainly two kinds of coffee beans- Coffee Arabica and Coffee Robusta. Coffee Robusta is more bitter and stronger in taste. Here are the few names of the different types of coffee drinking by the people in the various parts of the World.

  • Expresso
  • Cappuccino
  • Mocha
  • Latte
  • Flat Milk
  • Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Chai Latte
  • Egg Coffee
  • Doppio
  • Mazagran
  • Borgia
  • Frappé
  • Spiced Latte( My latest love) and list goes on.

Know Your Love :

  • Expresso :  If you are in love with Expresso, then it has 7g of  ground coffee in the filter and has brewed for 20 mins to make it 30 ml. You can have a double dose of your love with 14 grams to make it 60- 75 ml.
  • Cappuccino :  It has expresso coffee , milk and  foamed milk in same proportion i.e. 60ml in same order.
  • Latte : It has more of milk in quantity compared to the quantity of the coffee, double or more than that.Thus , it tastes less of coffee compared to Cappuccino.
  • Mocha : It gives you a flavour of expresso coffee with hot chocolate, topped with whipped cream. I am sure you can resist falling in love with it.
  • Macchiato : You can find it in Italy as they have invented it. It has coffee with only foamed milk on the top. In Kosavo, you will find it with cream on the top.
  • Flat Milk  : It has expresso coffee with microfoam milk( steamed milk with some bubbles) Unlike Cappuccino which has macro foam on the top.
  • Chai latte : As the name suggest, expresso coffee with a flavour of masala tea.
  • Mazagran :An expresso without milk with a flavour of lemon juice. Yes ! A coffee with lemon juice with a little of sugar and ice cubes. A must try.
  • Spiced Latte : Now , time to describe my latest Love❤❤. It has Expresso and milk with flavours of spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.

So , next time you order your favourite Coffee , feel the taste of and enjoy the real flavour of it or find your new love like me. I am also eager to share my new love. Till then , fix a date with coffee at your favourite place , may be  at a Coffee Shop, Workplace or everyone’s favourite- Home Sweet Home like me.

Caution : Coffee contains caffeine. Excessive intake may be injurious to your health . Consume it at your own risk.

He will be caught in his own creation
He was not knowing one  fine day
No space to move and  no air to breathe
He  tries his hard and push  himself
Into his Struggle to come out some day

He knows it is very painful
but he continues his efforts..
He  grapples ,tussles and
struggles for his emancipation
Why me?  He cries bitterly
as freedom is his tempation

Ah! He finally manages to come out
transformed  into  a  new being
He is happy to get a power to fly
And the  colourful wings
Now she is a beautiful butterfly 

He thanks God Almighty,for choosing Him to go to through this trouble
What for ? As now he understood
HE wanted him to be more powerful
As he was not knowing what he could

Sometimes she flies here and there
Sometimes she sits on flowers
Change is life….
Change is beautiful…
Gives this message to the world…..

Emotional Quotient:a friend or foe

 20170308_121540

Everybody in this world want to be a successful person but there are few who taste it.What is the measure of success is hard to define.Usually we believe that a person who scores well in exams say 90% is intelligent  while a child who scores say 60%is tortured (sorry to say this word but a bitter truth is that the child has to go through mental trauma). Here I would like to quote that 90% is says more about IQ (Intelligent Quotient) but what about EQ (Emotional Quotient).

IQ is important but EQ is nevertheless.

20170307_151307

Emotional Quotient plays important role in real life situations whether at home with family, with friends or at the job place with boss and colleagues.  There are certain situations which demands to have a cool mind and analysis of that moment when you and the people around you are going through the  strong emotional storm . In such case you have to understand your own emotions and others too. There is guarante that you will be able to handle this if you are emotionally strong which in turn mean have  high Emotional Quotient .

aa1a8863e58d490a845c7c46d57bd4d6

Emotional Quotient hence means to understand one’s own emotions and others too. It includes analysis and interpretation of emotions to achieve the target goal.
Let’s have an example

You are running a business and someone who is utmost important for you  and  your Company needs to be hospitalised due to serious illness.Your employees are under stress. You too are facing an emotional stress. Here, which is more important? 


EQ or IQ or A GOOD COMBINATION OF BOTH.You can judge you self. 

Let’s talk about Leadership. Leader is the one who has an ability to lead a team to achieve certain goal.He motivates his team members and condition them  in a way that they can face  every situation. Can we consider the academic performance be the criteria to be a Leader???

Can we consider only academic intelligence as a reason for success????

There are many other factors involved which creates a the path for success. Only Academics can’t be a reason of success as I have discussed in the previous post

 Moreover the definition of success is different for different people. Is there only two types of intelligence or some other  forms  are also existing? I will surely discuss in the coming posts .

 In nut shell what I  can say that  how the child has conditioned for real life’s hard truths and face emotional storms is really matter.

                               SO,

      APPRECIATE  THE   KINDS   OF    INTELLIGENCE YOUR CHILD HAVE 

                                     AS 

APPRECIATION CAN DO WONDERS !!!
