Smoker vs non-smoker viral video will make you quit cigarettes for good

The video shows what 1 pack per day of cigarette for 20 years can do to your lungs.pc:ht

While anti-smoking ads and disclaimers on cigarette packets may or may not be effective, this viral video may just do the trick. It comes in time for World No Tobacco Day (May 31), and may encourage you to kick the butt.

A North Carolina-based nurse Amanda Eller recently posted a couple of videos on Facebook that show the difference between healthy lungs and a black-coloured cancer-ridden lung. It is especially relevant in India, given latest reports suggesting 6.25 lakh children smoke cigarettes daily in India, according to the Tobacco Atlas report. Continue reading

13 Reasons Why to Live

pc: infinitysolutions

1. LIFE is an invitation to learn, a school. We can learn something from every moment, good or bad.

2. LIFE is not static, it’s in constant movement, much like the waves of the ocean. Each wave that comes brings with it new experiences, and each one is different. So just like the bad ones can sometimes show no mercy, the good ones also come and refresh us. Nothing last forever.

3. LIFE is a gift; some beings (children) depart too soon and don’t have the fortune to know life. Those who have it should enjoy it.

4. LIFE is not only our own. It also belongs to those who surround us. We should take care of ourselves because we are important to others, even when sometimes we are not aware of that.

5. Each new day is a new experience. If we don’t live it, we don’t know what we’re missing.

6. We are the designers of our LIFE; it is our challenge to Continue reading

HOW TO FIGURE OUT WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE

How to Get What You Want: The Four Ps

Because I am capable of making only small moves toward personal improvement, I find it helpful to break down the process of clarifying desire into steps. I call them the four Ps: Pushback, Possibilities, Preferences, and Pinpointing. Let’s consider them.

Step 1: Pushback

While visiting China, I heard a story of a wise man there who taught his acolytes by holding a little songbird on his finger. When the bird tried to leave, he’d drop his hand so it couldn’t get enough lift to fly away. Lesson: The ability to soar often depends on pushing back against something you don’t want. My feminist friends and I did lots of this; every time we identified things that felt wrong to us in a deeply authentic, visceral way, we were articulating the Pushback.

Since most humans are expert complainers, I’ll bet you’re feeling some level of Pushback right now. Somewhere in your life there’s a sense of resistance, Continue reading

Delhiwalo : A suitable boy wanted

Sultana Abdullah is a retired Air India hostess who spent more than 30 happy years on the national carrier’s in-flight cabin crew. She is now 60 and is looking for a bookish romantic handsome man to marry.

pc: ht

A 60-year-old woman with her own apartment in a posh central Delhi locality is looking for a bookish romantic handsome man to marry.

The white coiffured Sultana Abdullah is a retired Air India hostess who spent more than 30 happy years on the national carrier’s in-flight cabin crew. These days, she is often seen cycling around her colony’s bylanes.

Ms Abdullah’s principal qualities — in her own words — include her “wicked sense of humour”, “unfailing loyalty to friends” and the fact that “I check my email only once a month.” Her ideal man should be between 50 and 65 and with common sense. He must be proud of his Indian heritage but should have western sensibilities. “I prefer a happy balance of liberal and conservative instincts.” The suitable candidate should be fond of good music and must not talk politics around the dining table under any circumstances. He should be sufficiently wealthy to take care of his comforts — “at least.” Continue reading

Chhattisgarh to recruit 35000 transgenders in police force

RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh police will hire transgender constables in the next couple of months as part of the recruitment policy and deploy them to combat Maoist extremists whenever required.

The state government has asked police to hire transgender people in accordance with a Supreme Court judgement.

“We are set to recruit them if they pass a mandatory written exam and physical test,” said Pawan Deo, the state’s additional director general of police (recruitment), on Thursday.

In 2014, the SC declared transgender people as “third gender” and ruled they have equal privilege over the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution. Continue reading

OddEven 3 is on hold, NGT denied exemption to women

NEW DELHI: The Delhi government temporarily shelved  its plan on Saturday to introduce a five-day road rationing arrangement after the National Green Tribunal denied exemption to two-wheeler riders and women. The drive would have mandated that vehicles with odd and even registration numbers ply on alternate days.

“We respect the NGT’s order, but the existing public transport system won’t be able to take the load of three million additional passengers who otherwise use two-wheelers,” Kailash Gahlot, state transport minister, said on Saturday. “Also, keeping women’s security in mind, the government has decided to call off the scheme for now.”
