Rather we humans are being cruel to our Earth by our selfish activities. Mahatma Gandhi said, “Earth provides enough to satisfy every...

A 7 year girl was raped by her own grandfather & a 15 year old girl was raped by her own father. These are only the representative cases, probably hundreds or thousands of such cases mi...

Life is another name of struggle. Every living thing born in this world struggles in one way or other to survive in this world, and every creature feels happiness, sadness, mercy, anger, fear etc. in their lifetime and so it is for human beings too.

Yesterday I took a pen & paper to write an exciting & informative article about some global issues which I intended to post in VOY blogging page but lot of topics mingled in my mind & finally I decided not to write about them & instead to write about my own state of mind during the exam time.
