In democracies like the one I live in, politics is, whether we like it or not, an integral part of our lives. In everything we read, everything we eat and even in everything we touch is a story interwoven with politics. We know of people who have given up their lucrative careers to come into politics and do community service; we know of committed “career politicians”, and we also know of the greedy and the slovenly type who live off public property. Therefore in politics, a...

Everyone's struggled with procrastination. I can procrastinate with reading, watching TV, eating, even watching videos about how to stop procrastination! Sometimes, it feels as though I would rather do anything but study for a Chemistry test. We know that we have deadlines - flashing, bolded dates on calendars and diaries, but somehow, we just can't seem to start working. As deadlines loom above us, we suddenly find another YouTube video that we have to watch, a friend we have to c...

Its seems to me that this summer is much warmer than the previous summers we have had. The rain has not even been constant, it is not so often that rain starts in December. Mostly it begins to rain constantly and often late October.

But what will happen to our country if there is no rain? The gases that are let out into th...

Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

Frankly speaking, I don’t like politics very much. However, being a youth and a responsible citizen of the nation, I listen to political news and discussions to understand the political situation of the country. Unfortunately, Nepal is presently facing severe political instability despite the fact that there should have been political stability in this phase, as we held the second election for drafting our constitution by 22 January 2015. The first constitutional assembly was not...

Gender equality In the course of recent history, a growing problem has plagued the world and has also gone unnoticed to all except those who must endure it. One may think that it is the rise of terrorist networks or perhaps the surge of diseases, however this one problem in particular is a problem that has not received much coverage at all, yet affects roughly around three billion people every day. This wide spread struggle endured by many is the rise of gender inequality. T...
