World’s tallest railway bridge- Chenab bridge
May 10, 2017

The world’s tallest railway arch bridge is being constructed in Jammu connecting Kashmir over the river Chenab. This bridge is said to withstand the high intensity of blasts and also the worst natural disasters like earthquakes and more.

This is the first time globally that a bridge is being constructed so strongly as to withstand the high-level explosion of trinitrotoluene (TNT). The safety oof the bridge architecture is being consulted by the Defense Research and Development Organization. The bridge is constructed by Konkan Railway Corporation Limited on a budget of Rs. 1200 crores.
This Chenab bridge is 1.3 km long with a height of about 359 meters and is 35 meters taller than Eiffel tower in Paris and Five times the height of Qutab Minar in Delhi.
The bridge connects the crucial link of 111 km stretch between Katra in Jammu and Banihal in Kashmir which is a part of the Udhamour- Srinagar- Baramulla section of the railway project. This project is aiming to link Kashmir with the rest of the country. The project site is located only 60km from Pakistan border. The construction work was started back in August 2004 with a deadline of April  2007 but have missed several deadlines and is in the process of construction still then.
The engineers constructing the bridge says that even if the 17 piers of the bridge has been blown off the bridge would result in a collapse and also it can withstand up to two and a half loads of TNT blasts. The after effects would be just some minor repairs says the engineers.
The construction of railway links in Kashmir dates back to the year 1892 where the King of Kasmir, Maharaja Pratap Singh laid the foundation for a railway link between Jammu and Srinagar which was later abandoned in 1925 when the king died. Also, some railway lines were between Pakistan and Jammu for sugar trade which was also abandoned after partition in 1947.
The material used to construct this bridge is 63-millimeter thick special blast-proof steel and concrete steel which can withstand explosions. The reason for using this is because the bridge is in a zone which is prone to frequent terrorist attacks. A system of aerial security, online warnings and a continuous monitoring system on the bridge are provided for security purposes. The bridge is a massive steel arch bridge with the ability to withstand temperatures as low as -20-degree celsius and a wind speed of about 200 kmph and also it is cost economical. The company AECOM is the team behind the construction and providing technical guidance in design and construction of the bridge.
Although the construction of the bridge is delayed if it is completed it will be of national importance and serve as an important pathway for the commuters. It is good to know that none of the extremist groups have made a fuss or created any sort of trouble while the construction of the bridge as till date there is no single news of any nuisance and unwanted disturbances in the construction of the bridge. If they can maintain peace this will be a huge success for the nation and its people.

How to be an idealistic person- It really helps
May 9, 2017
An idealistic person is a one who never cares about what others think and be determined in their goals and stick to their plans. It is hard to be idealistic throughout the life but being one will surely make you successful and helps in achieving the intended goals. Some might think you are crazy because if you are idealistic, you will never change your course of path even if the earth rotates in the reverse direction. This is one of the major characteristic attributes of highly successful people. They are all running successfully because they never give up. They never backed off when they faced failure. They never stayed lying down on the ground when they were hit badly by failure. They refused to stay defeated. They refused to be weak and kept running learning from those failures. So, just remember, “Failure is temporary. Move quickly past it. What lies beyond the failure is the lesson -Tom Bilyeu.” This idealistic quality can be developed by practice as it lies in each and every one of us.
1. Writing down the goals clearly
This is the very first step you have to take if you want to be idealistic. Write down your goals clearly, making a list. See this often whenever you feel low. This will act as a motivation for you.
2. Defining your goals positively
When you are about to express your thoughts on your goals to the people make sure you express them in a positive manner without offending anyone’s feelings. The way you express should be a motivation for others. Everybody is unique and all of us look the same thing in a different perspective. Positivity is important.
3. Not changing your goals for others
After defining your goals some people may laugh at you and even make fun of your goals. But you have to stay strong and shouldn’t change your goals for the sake of haters. Remember people who are laughing and making fun of you will always be making fun. Never waste your precious time for them.
4. See positivity in everything
The world may look tougher and the circumstances may change badly for you providing you to face a lot of obstacles and difficulties while traveling towards your target. Despite the circumstances, look for opportunities and create them from those obstacles. Use those obstacles as steps and ladder for your success. Always hope for the best.
5. Read a lot of biographies of famous and successful people
While reading has a number of benefits, reading biographies and stories of successful people helps a lot in becoming an idealistic person. Their struggles and ways of how they solved the problems and how they overcame the difficulties will give you an idea of looking at the problem and finding a solution for it in a different perspective. This will motivate you to stay stronger during difficult times remembering about the successful people you have read. Also reading about successful people improve your leadership and management skills which are added advantage for your idealistic character.

Social sector- For reforming the nation

Social sectors are the ones like NGO’s which helps the ones that really needs the help the needy. This sector has now many youngsters who want to create a change and try something differently in their life. This sector is filled with people who doesn’t want to go to a regular college and be an engineer or a doctor. This is more than that. There are reputed colleges and fellowship programs available for those who want to pursue their dream as a social worker. We should be lucky because we have a family who is always there for you to take care of you, to worry about you, to feed you when you are hungry, to get you good and even costly clothes and the clothes that you like, give you education, a warm and cozy room with all the gadgets etc. You should really be thankful for that. There are still millions who were very poor not even afford a single meal a day, wearing shabby clothes, sleeping on platforms, eating from the dustbin, drinking water from sewage living in a dumpster. Not having money or anything to buy them the basic necessities. Imagine living one day like that. Can you even imagine? Whose fault is that they are living like that when we can sleep in an air conditioned room in our houses. People, it’s time to think and start acting. Even though you don’t pursue a degree from the social work institutes or universities you may still follow the fellowship programs available in your place. It melts my heart whenever I see a small child begging in the busy roads of traffic selling some pens, toys, sun shield. Sometimes even they beg for money for food.

One day me and my friend while returning from college saw a mother and child who were begging for money in the traffic. We felt really sad for the girl as she was around six to seven years old. So, we went and asked her mother why she is allowing her little child to beg in the signal. Her response was really shocking. We asked about here whereabouts and why is she living in the streets. She said she was abandoned by her husband as he is a bad drinker and he will beat her and her child daily. So she said she had left the house avoiding her husband and started to live on the road. She would still send her baby girl to school on weekdays and she would sell some things like pens, caps, earbuds etc and on weekends her baby girl would join her. She had a baby boy who was around a year sitting with hungry eyes on his mother’s lap. We were so moved by the lady’s story we wanted to help her but we couldn’t. Why because is our parents didn’t like this kind of activities. When we go and said that they said there are organizations to look for them so you just focus on your life. So, question yourself, who are the people behind these organizations? It is people like you and me who strive to bring a change in this society, helping the abused, protecting children and the needy voluntarily without compulsion. But even if you are going to pursue your career as a social worker then go and join in a reputed university.

Some of the reputed institutes include- 

# TATA Institute of Social Sciences

# Jamia Milia Islamia 

# Delhi School of Social work 

# Madras School of Social Work 

# Nirmala Niketan 

Some popular social sector fellowships

# Teach for India Fellowship 

# William J Clinton Fellowship 

# Gandhi Fellowship 

# Azim Premji Foundation Fellowship 

# Prime Minister’s Rural Fellowship 

Thank you for reading friends. Please share this with your friends if any of them is interested in doing social work. Thank you.

Interesting facts and myths about water
May 8, 2017

In summer water becomes the most priceless thing in the world for all of us. We will be in the water, drinking, bathing, having lemonades but still, we won’t be able to quench that prolonging thirst however hard we try. Do you agree with this my friends as I will be like this in summer? When I see water I will transform into Gollum, “My precious.” LOL.  We will be hearing a lot of facts about how much water to drink and all but is everything true? Well, there are some myths in that too. Let’s see what are all the true facts and what are all the myths.

The true facts about water
1. Drinking eight glasses of water a day is necessary
This is indeed a true fact that on an average we need to drink at least eight glasses water in order to stay away from dehydration and other problems. However, if you cannot drink eight glasses of water correctly doctors suggest that to keep a general rule of drinking two to three liters of water a day.
2. Drinking water helps in weight loss
Although water doesn’t directly involve in reducing your weight, drinking water at regular intervals will keep you full thereby limiting the intake of food. But when you are extremely hungry having a glass of water will replenish your digestive system thereby prevents you from overeating.
3. Drinking water while eating will affect digestion
Doctors say that drinking water while eating will dilute the stomach enzymes which interferes the digestion process. Also, drinking water during meals will add more volume to the stomach which causes bloating and acid refluxes. Therefore it is advisable to drink water before having a meal and about 30 minutes after taking your meal. This will keep the digestive juices flowing.
4. Drinking water removes toxin from our body
Dr. Jasvinder Anand, Senior consultant, Internal Medicine, Medanta says that drinking water is essential for proper functioning of kidneys which are solely reliable on how much water we drink. The sufficient amount of drinking water will help in excluding Urea which is one of the major toxins in our body. Also, drinking enough water helps in preventing constipation problems and good bowel movement, and also water acts as a lubricant for the colon. Proper drinking of water will help in preventing digestive ailments.
These are some true facts about the amount of drinking water a day and what are the benefits that we get from drinking enough water. So, now let’s see some of the myths that we believed to be true but they are not.
1. Water need decreases in winter season
Rupali Datta, a Delhi-based nutritionist says that this one of a major false belief. She says that even though we don’t feel thirsty in winter our body uses more energy to keep itself warm for which it requires hydration. The air in the winter is also much dry so we need to drink water in order to keep our mouths, throats, and noses moist. Also, our body loses one to two liters of water in urine, 500 ml in sweat, 300-400 ml while breathing in both summer and winter. Despite the seasonal changes our body will be functioning as normal and it is our duty to keep it hydrated.
2. Drinking water too much
Though drinking a lot of water in excess will not have any adverse effects on our body Dr. Ranjish Monga, Head of Gastrology, Gurgaon. Except for elderly people who have high blood pressure and on a low sodium diet can drink excess water only on a medical advice otherwise it will cause electrolyte imbalance. Otherwise drinking excess water at times is not a big problem.
3. All drinks are good for hydration
People often have the false assumption that having a cup of coffee or tea will hydrate the body and replaces the drinking of water. This is a false assumption studies shows. Often coffee or tea will make us expel more water from the body than usual. The biggest rascal is alcohol. Drinking alcohol not only causes often urination but also leads to vomiting and after effects are quite discomforting.
4. Drinking a liter of water early in the morning will keep our digestive system healthy
This is another false assumption and people should stop drinking a liter of water early in the morning immediate after waking up. This will lead to flushing out a whole lot of electrolytes on an empty stomach. But if you feel thirsty having a glass of water is just enough as anything more than that will be unnecessary.
5. You will dehydrate if you don’t drink enough water post workout
Nutritionists say dehydration occurs only when you lose 2% of your total body water. You can measure this by weighing yourself before and after workout sessions. If you are an athlete, bike racer then you will be needing 200 ml of water every 20 minutes in order to maintain the glycogen stores. Otherwise if you just workout only mildly a tender coconut or lemonade will balance the water need.
Most of the myths that I have mentioned was believed by me as true facts. So, let me know in the comment section which are the ones that you believed to be true and which are the myths that you believed. The right amount of drinking water will help us stay away from diseases.

High heels- A fashionable torment
May 8, 2017

High heels are the fashion now, and its usage by the women have slowly increased in the recent years. Some workplaces make it a customary practice to wear heels as one of the rules in the dress code. The history of heels dates back to the 1400s where the fist known heel known as Chopines worn by the Venetian prostitutes and the wealthy empires in Italy and Ottoman to show their wealth that didn’t have to walk. Later it evolved to Lachets then Pompadour heels and then the Stiletto in 1953. Thanks to Roger Viver for inventing this wonderful shoes along with it brought many health ailments. Stilettos were actually worn by men on those days which evolved as a reason for heeled shoes for men. This is why cowboy shoes have heels. Doctors and physicians say that it is not bad to wear high heels but wearing them for too long will land you in trouble.

We all know the famous London-based Nicola Thorp who started a petition against wearing high heels as a part of work culture. Thorp a temporary employee had been sent home as she did not abide by the appearance guidelines of the company which required her to wear two to four-inch heels. Wearing heels can be a fashion but it has both short and long term problems for women.
Dr. V Ramnarayan, consultant orthopedic and podiatric surgeon in Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialist center, Chennai says that high heels are a common cause of joint pain, low back pain, and ankle sprain. In addition to that, women who wear heels are likely to develop shortened Achilles tendon.  Achilles tendon is the band of fibrous tissue that connects the calf muscles to the heel bones.
He explains that while wearing high heels, 70% of our body weight is shifted into the ball of the foot which weakens the surrounding ligaments. This will result in ‘hot foot’ or metatarsalgia. Also wearing high heels exerts pressure on thighs and hip which increases the curve of your spine thereby causing back pain.
Also continuously wearing pointed toe shoes results in developing Hallux Valgus or Bunions, hammertoes, and even calluses leading to athlete’s foot.
So, what is the alternative?
Podiatrist suggests anything below an inch tall is suitable for wearing for long hours. They also recommend women to wear “fplatforms” which allows the pressure distribution evenly. Also, the material they suggest is leather or rubber and it is good to stay away from plastics, synthetic, and vinyl.
But the sad truth there are occasions where you are supposed to wear high heels and look tall. So in that situations, the podiatrists suggest to wear them not more than two to three hours. This is for those who don’t have any foot problems. For those with any foot problems then it is good for them to stay away from it. Also, if you are in a compulsion of wearing high heels to your workplace then make sure you do some stretching and strengthening exercises for your feet. One such exercise is that stretching the Achilles tendons, spreading the toes and rolling the feet over a tennis ball will be helpful, podiatrists suggests.
So, wear what is good for your feet as health is important than looking nice.

Dark or White- Every girl is beautiful in her own way
May 8, 2017

What are we going to do with the skin color? Do we remain beautiful and young with the flawless skin that we had in our twenties in our sixties as well? Absolutely no. The skin ages along with us and when we die it just goes away and only the skeleton remains. So, why struggle to make it look whiter and more beautiful day by day using the chemical cosmetics?

We live in the world where a girl with a white skin is considered to be beautiful and if she is dark then her life is over. Even have a glance at the matrimonial advertisements- female of this community with “white skin” is wanted. Despite the campaigns and movement which stresses that color is not an issue still people are wanting their brides to be white. Why not look for a girl with a good respect, courtesy, reverence, etiquette, well educated etc? Why not look for these qualities rather than the color?
Fact on skin damage:
Ozone gas is suspected to be one of the primary causes of pollution- related skin damage. The outer layer of our skin contains lipids. Ozone is said to oxidize them by breaking down the skin’s barrier function. Looks like it is time to encourage afforestation to reduce the pollution and ozone gas from depleting our skin.
The cosmetic industry uses actors and actresses who are promoting the product with the message that white is good. Most of the advertisements portray a black girl after applying the particular cream becomes white and fair. The word “Fair” is portrayed wrongly here which implants a negative thought in the minds of dark girls. This is another way of discriminating women. This continues till she gets a good job where she is nervous about whether she would be selected because she is dark and unfair. Many brands still think a dark model as “un- sellable.” Here women are more affected than men.
The physical damage caused by  the very cosmetics that we use daily:
In 2014, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), India tested fairness creams and found that 44% of the cosmetics contained mercury. Cosmetics with mercury is banned in India. Only 65 parts per million are allowed in eye drops and 1 part per million of unintentional use is allowed in other finished cosmetics. Even fairness creams which don’t have the words whitening or fair contained mercury. So, dermatologists are advising to stay away from creams that have these words- light, anti- marks, glow and radiance.
The World Health Organization states that kidney damage is one of the major issue caused by the use of skin lightening creams which contains mercury. Other effects include skin rashes, skin discoloration, reduction in the skin’s resistance to bacterial and fungal infections, anxiety, depression and even psychosis.
In 2016, a paper entitled Women’s Disempowerment and the Market for Skin Whitening Products revealed an experimental result on a research on the fairness cream stating that the products contained the bleaching agent which is considered as a carcinogen and banned in Europe and Australia.
Therefore skin lightening is not only a psychological problem but also a serious health issue. Dark or white every girl, every woman is beautiful in her one way and everyone has their unique style and that is how God has made them. So let’s start to make our inner beauty more beautiful rather than making our physical beauty more beautiful. Embrace yourself however you may be and show the world what you can do as physical beauty and skin color has nothing do with that.
Thanks for reading. Good luck. 🙂
