social networking

A way of living- social networking
 “Networking is not about hunting. It’s about cultivating relationships”. This is 21st century! People around the globe are available just at a click of the mouse. Today social networking is grouping people with common interest. On professional front especially at work places, universities etc. it is an important space to gather and share first hand information and experiences.
Well! Anyway the topics and interests are as varied and rich as the story of our universe. There is never a scarcity of talks or topics. When it comes to social sites i.e social networking websites, who can forget facebook and twitter. E-mails are eventually becoming smitten and facebook is attracting eye balls around the globe. From teens to octogenarians all are facebook obsessed. A cyber space has changed the map of the world. Socialising includes visiting each other’s profile pages and possibly even contacting them.
From revolution to debating, from nationalism to national integration, from politics to politicians, from revenge to envy and then to flirtism, greed of every emotion is satisfied here. You may dream to get your prince charming here and end up meeting a male chauvinist. Mind you people, cupid is always at work here.
As a matter of fact, social media is all about sociology and psychology more than technology. It is the best example of integrity in diversity. There are numerous websites on cyber space, some are focussed i.e they have a relevant reason for existence other than just socialising.

Book review, I too had a love story

A love story is somewhat like a sieve which tends to allow all sorrows to stay on the top while the rest collects below .In the hustle and bustle of daily life, I came across the saga of a couple which made me recognize a new horizon of ‘love’. I too had a love story is a novel inspired by a true tale. It tends to make you ponder upon a new dimension of love, life, death, joy, sorrow and every beautiful emotion which still exists somewhere in this grim world. Moreover, the past tense of the title tends to attract your attention. I too had a love story, is a debut novel of the author,Ravinder Singh .
Well generally we categorize a love story as a story of a boy a girl and a problem which is solved by the end and the story end and the story ends on a happy note .To dispel your illusions I too had a love story is definitely not one of them. the book is emarked with a tragic end which explains the logic of past tense of the title. The book is a perfect blend of every possibly existing emotion of the world. Everyone who will come across this book will be able to relate to its own love story somehow.  Like every story it has a simple approachable boy Ravin and a charming girl next door Khushi. Their dreams aspiration and emmence love that is still waiting to be bloomed. Alas!! thing don’t happen as he had thought as destiny had other plans for them. You would be able to feel every pinch of emotion which the author has tried to portray through his words. The simplicity of the language and story will bind you to read every single word of the book. If you are looking for a literary piece this book this book is definitely not the one for you. Giving out more about the story would not do justice to any aspiring reader. but I can definitely Assure you that you will find yourself empathizing with the author effortlessly.                      Anyone who has been bitten by the “love bug” would find it sensitive enough to cry his eyes out by the end. the book doesn’t involve any of the lavish or extravagant stuff. Some books take you for a surprise and this is one of them.
The story tends to struck a chord with almost everyone who comes across it. it leaves you spell struck with some very basic gut unanswered questions like Is love beyond external beauty?
Is love just skin deep?
Can modern day gadget like cell phones and the www.era era of the internet bring you the love of your life?
How would you react when a beautiful person makes all your dreams come true and then one day goes away form you…………..forever?
Well all I would like to say is that not all love stories are meant to have a perfect ending. Some stories are left incomplete. Yet they are beautiful is their own way.

Just wana brag a minute
Well!! You know how good I am at dancing. Everyone as usual was highly impressed by the act.
Oh!! You can’t imagine how ravishing I was looking at the ceremony. People seemed to be amazed by my flawless beauty. We all encounter phrases like these nearly every day of our life.
“He who is humble is confident and wise
He who brags is insecure and lacking.”
Yawn!! Age old stories. Phrases like these are a thing of past now. In today’s scenario bragging is neither considered crass nor a thing for wackos. Though it still infuriates people. Bragging is a part and parcel of both success and popularity today. Though bragging is not an attractive trait, but lets be honest, the one how catches the big fish doesn’t go back home through an alley. Bragging can produce many benefits in life, it forms part of genuine attempt to convey the good points out yourself to others in need of being persuade of your virtues. But then the question arises how to brag without being narcissistic? One should brag in a way that it still attracts reverence by the people. Moreover bragging modestly about yourself gets people to attract to you, learn more about you, and shows that you have a great self esteem.
One can easily attract eye-balls while bragging by following some guidelines. First of all keep the word “I” out of context. Because using the word “I” in every sentence labels you as arrogant, self-centred and self-absorbed. But, it isn’t possible to talk about oneself without using the word “I”. So it must be taken care that “I” must be toned down in terms of self reference.
Consider using phrases such as:
“my skill set is”
“my ability to do this can be demonstrated by”
Secondly look forward to acknowledge compliments given by people but do not try to return the compliment immediately as it soundless sincere.
Be dauntless to recognise your own achievements. A thumb rule is only to brag about something which you would compliment someone else on. That way, you are sure to be less self-centred..
So, blow your triumph blissfully.
