Drive safely!!

On my way to office today, i met an heart thundering incident. A car hit two people (one female and one male) and ran away in speed. The police reached late and the crowd was trying to help these people., but unfortunately both of them died on the spot.

Well the accident was over and i came to office, but the images of the incidents kept running throughout the day and i was surprised that how could that guy ran off after creating such a blunder, will he be able to forgive himself ever. The man and the woman who died in the accident seem to be married, he actually destroyed two families.

Hit and run is a serious offence not only infront of law but also humanity, one should understand that we have no right to ruin anyone's life just like that. Most of accidents are the result of rash and negligent driving and the morning incident confirmed the same.

while driving we should keep certain things in mind to avoid accidents:
  • Don't drink alcohol while driving
  • Get plenty of sleep before you drive.
  • Do not use your cell phones while driving
  • Do not show off publically that how fast you can drive. Don't pretend you're in a video game.
i would like to make a public appeal here that we all should avoid rash driving it can be dangerous not only for others but to us also. did any one of you faced any incident like this.??

Importance of RIGHT TO VOTE

Thursday was an important day in the capital of India, Fourth phase of general elections was held here. In India elections are been held in phases because most of the security personnel are required to move around the country to facilitate the polling of around millions of people.

One of my close friend went to cast vote and he is been offered an amount of Rs. 150/- to cast vote by a well known political party. The incident not only clearly portrays the condition of our polling systems but also contributes to demotivates the young generation by highlighting their cheap methods of earning votes. Also this clearly mentions that political parties are not having any reasonable agenda on which they can be confident enough to earn votes. Most of the population of our country is illiterate and so get easily influenced by the illogical speeches of our political leaders. There are a ton of schemes and programmes for the education of the children as well as the adults. but very few of them actually works to give a sincere output.

Working for an organisation which works towards providing educational assistance to children of slums i get to know about the realities of the government schools. it was shocking to note that a student of 8th standard was not able to read and write and he has been passed in all his previous classes because according the government rule no one can mark a child as fail in his result upto 8th standard. well the rule must have something good as it actually decreases the terror to being failed among the students but then it is the responsibility of the respective authority to maintain theiir standards too. the aim should not be completing the targets it should be making them educated in way that they can be able to to contribute towards the development of the country.

I also believe that criticising government or political parties does not solve the problem we as citizens should also realise our responsibility and understand that we together make the country and if we are sensitive enough to make it survive positively then its worthless to blame others.
In a democratic country like ours we all should cast vote but not under the influence of any monetary benefit (as incident of friend mentioned above).We are responsible for the government we criticize whole of 5 year. We need to understand the importance of our RIGHT TO VOTE and choose the government which is we feel is competent enough to run our country.

Understanding People

Humans are indeed an interesting species, and very hard to understand at times. Sometimes It becomes difficult just trying to understand what they must be thinking when they do the things they do. They are strange and different from each other may thats the reason of all kind of inventions in the world and also this makes the world volatile and interesting.

At work i have to deal with different categories of people , interview them and assess them for the particular responsibility. Usually whenever i go for an interview, the first 10 minutes gives me an impression, which to a large extent determines whether the candidate will be suitable for the job or not . In these first ten seconds, i observe his impressions like nervousness, seriousness, etc. These first seconds also influence to a large extent the rest of the conversation and any further contacts, may be that why its been said that "first impression is very important" .

There can be many other ways of understanding human behaviour, this one is mine in a particular situation. Though i believe that most of us behave differently in different situation. So i would like to know your way of understanding people. Do you believe in first impression formula??
