CBSE Board Exams Retest - A Total Failure Of The Indian Examination System

Hey Shouters

Board exams played a crucial part in all of our lives. Where we belong to today, may be is the consequence of how we performed in our Board exams. Students start preparing for their exams months or even years before the exam takes place. After incessant and dedicated hours of hard work, they finally give and finish off their exams, good or bad, but they finish off with it and the enormous amount of pressure and trauma that comes with it. Now, imagine you wake up in the morning to a news that you need to give one of your papers again. How are you supposed to feel about it?

CBSE has declared a retest for the subject Economics for students who appeared in Class 12 boards and a retest for Math for students who appeared in Class 10 Boards.

This News took the whole nation by a shock as no one was expecting this. The papers had been leaked and in order to make the whole process of evaluation fair to all the students, this decision was taken by the Central Board. But the consequence of taking such a drastic decision which could affect the future of such a huge number of students has led to the development of a cloud of trauma and fear and most importantly, a feeling of anger and protest against the Central Board of Education in India.

Even though the decision has been taken “For the Students”, but in reality it has become a nightmare for them. It's unfair on all the grounds. While the number of students who might have benefited them due to paper leaking are may be in hundreds but the number of students who are badly affected by the decision are definitely in lakhs. The decision is against the very essence of the exam as the students who had worked day and night and had given a wonderful exam will also have to reappear and their exams might not go that well this time. Also the students, who couldn't perform well in the exams, get another chance to perform which is definitely unfair to the former.
Imagine the condition of those students who after months of hard labor, have already left for a vacation trip to get some refreshment and they get to know that they need to give an exam again!

The fault lies with the Central Board if a paper gets leaked and not the students. The importance of the Board Exams is known to all of us and an incident like this is really tragic. It has undermined all the efforts put in by the students. The decision taken by the board needs to be thought over otherwise it may lead to drastic consequences. A country’s future lies within the hands of the students who promise to develop and run our country and hence it’s the primary duty of the Government to take care of all the interests and needs of the Student Community of its country.

5 Things To Stop Expecting From People Right Away

Hey Shouters

Expectation is a beautiful thing when it is met, Isn't it? But what about when they fall apart? Probably not as beautiful as the seemed to be. Well, we all are social beings and we so often get connected to other people. With connections, comes expectations and with expectations comes the fear of not fulfilling them. What i feel is, its the beginning of the end, an end to that beautiful time that you might have had, if and only if and only you had not expected!

While expectations are not really a bad thing to have, the thing that matters the most is what are you really expecting. Are you being 'just' in the things you are expecting? Probably you yourself don't know this answer, or may be you do know it deep down your heart but are not ready to accept it as you feel you can expect the whole world from the person you are connected to and who you care for.
But are you really correct in having such unrealistic expectations? 

Falling apart of expectations can be really tough to handle. Its very important to self realize what to expect and what not to! In this post, I would like give a list 5 Things That You Should Stop Expecting From Others Right Away:

1.   Stop expecting (and needing) them to like youYou might feel unwanted and unworthy to one person, but you are priceless to another.  Don’t ever forget your worth.  Spend time with those who value you.  No matter how good you are to people, there will always be one negative person who criticizes you.  Smile, ignore them, and carry on.

2. Stop expecting them to know what you’re thinking.
People can’t read minds.  They will never know how you feel unless you tell them. Your boss?  Yeah, he doesn’t know you’re hoping for a promotion because you haven’t told him yet.  That cute guy you haven’t talked to because you’re too shy?  Yeah, you guessed it, he hasn’t given you the time of day simply because you haven’t given him the time of day either. Well, communicating your thoughts and feelings is very important in this aspect. Keep it simple and tell people what You feel.
3Stop expecting them to fit your idea of who they areLoving and respecting others means allowing them to be themselves.  When you stop expecting people to be a certain way, you can begin to appreciate THEM. Accepting the way a person is, make that person feel confident, not only about himself but also about the bond he share with you. If you do not like the person, them simply move on.

4Stop expecting them to agree with you You deserve to be happy.  You deserve to live a life you are excited about.  Don’t let the opinions of others make you forget that.  You are not in this world to live up to the expectations of others, nor should you feel that others are here to live up to yours.  In fact, the more you approve of your own decisions in life, the less approval you need from everyone else. Just be honest to only one person, and that is to yourself and you are ready to go.
5Stop expecting them to respect you more than you respect yourself -True strength is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles.  It’s about having faith and trust in who you are, and a willingness to act upon it.  Decide this minute to never again beg anyone for the love, respect, and attention that you should be showing yourself.
Now just for a second, imagine you had no expectations at all from anyone and there is no one expecting you to meet his/her expectations. Didn't all the fear just vanished for that single second? I am sure it did. Expectations are the key to all the fears that exists within us. Well, being emotional beings, we can't stop expecting , but we can at least be realistic in what we expect. Lets start "Accepting" in place of "Expecting" and World would become a more happier place to live in :-)

“Expectations were like fine pottery. The harder you held them, the more likely they were to crack.”

The Journey of a Woman

Hey Shouters

Today being the International Women's Day, I would like to dedicate this post to those who I feel are the base on which this beautiful universe stands-all the strong,empowered and courageous women of the world.

Just thinking about the number of a roles a woman plays in her journey of life , gives me goosebumps. Let us live those beautiful roles with this post.

  So according to me the first role that a woman plays is that of a daughter. It is often a saying that

 daughters are her father's favorite. Indeed it is true. She starts getting life lessons right from the start.She understands the duties she needs to fulfill and and apart from all these , she loves her parents to the core of her heart, even after being married and having other responsibilities,
her love and responsibility towards her parents never gets a back seat.

The role of a sister is indeed a beautiful one. The amount of love that persists in a brother sister relationship ,just can't be imagined . This love is unconditional and unadulterated with any negative motive. Being an elder sister she tries to compromise on things that could bring about a moment of happiness for her brother. She is the true guide and the person with whom we can share everything.

The role of a wife is what makes a woman strong. She has to leave her home to come and start a new living all together, in a new place. The amount of courage that it takes is beyond our words. She has to manage her responsibilities towards her personal as well as professional life. Even after all the works she does, she never fails to cheer her husband up, when he needs her.

The most important important role that a woman plays, is that of a MOTHER. Right from the starting second, when her baby comes to this world, her journey of endless care and nurturing starts. She sacrifices the wishes of her own self, to fulfill the wishes of her children. Even after her children makes a hundreds of mistakes, she corrects them and keeps her children away from all the negativity that persists. If given a choice to sacrifice her life for the sake of her children's happiness , she would happily take it.

I believe that the amount of contributions that the women do, cannot be acknowledged in just a single day. We should respect and empower our women community 365*24*7 .A community prospires only if the women in the community are treated equal. 

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”– Diane Mariechild

Semester Breaks: A time to Utilise.


The feeling we get  once our semester exams end and our semester break starts is indeed out of this world. We feel like to rest and sleep whole day long. Doesn't it feel like heaven? Tbh, I wouldn't get out of bed even if a meteor struck me :|
 But I feel, Sem breaks are the only time which are worth utilizing and spending productively. It's the only period when we have our own time when we don't have any other college related work.

So this blogpost is about the ways one can monetize and spend their sem break in a fun and productive way! Read on to find out more :)

1. Apply for Scholarships and Internships

If there was ever a time to apply, it’s now! You don’t have to spend the entire break applying for scholarships, but even if you devote a few hours to your scholarship applications, it will make a world of difference in your search. After all, it only takes one to win.

2.      Plan Next Semester’s Schedule

What? Here are we searching ways to enjoy holidays and this college crap again?

I know.. But this is the time to get a jump start on planning next semester while you have time and there’s no time like the present!
Additionally, you should start creating a game plan for next semester now, before you get too busy to do so later.         

3Revamp your Resume, Cover Letter and/or Essays
Whether it’s a job, internship or college application resume, cover letter or essays, updated documents are always good to keep on hand at all times – after all, you never know when you might need them!
Opportunity knocks the moment you’re least expecting it so it’s always best to be prepared at a moment’s notice.
As a result, take the extra time during your break to work on all your important documents, adding any extra information you have had since you last updated them.

4Volunteer Work
The holiday season is an excellent time for charitable work. Along with the satisfaction of helping the less fortunate, students can polish resumes and graduate school applications by volunteering. Whether it’s visiting a nursing home, organizing a gift drive or working the phones for a local non-profit, volunteering is a good way to help others while sharpening life skills.                                                                                   
5Take a Holiday Road Trip
Once we leave college and enter the full-time workforce, vacation time is scarce — maybe a couple of paid weeks each year for those who are lucky. Adapting to a five day-a-week grind with little time off can be tough. So, it’s important to seize vacation opportunities when they’re available. A quick road trip with friends or family can generate memories to treasure forever. It’s also a great way to recharge batteries for the upcoming semester.                                                                                  

"Productivity is never an accident. It's always a result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning, and focused effort."                                                                                                                                                                                                Anonymous

Being Single


So, today being Valentine's day, I would like to dedicate this post to that group of people who proclaim to be happier than all the rest. Yes, my friends, I do am referring to the people who proudly call themselves ' SINGLE'.

Now, first of all, all those who are single, have an unbelievable optimistic spirit of
of happiness.They try and make others believe how happening their lives are. For some, it may be true, but for the rest, it's more of an attempt to not to get tempted by the bait of getting into a relationship.

It is true to say that life is indeed difficult for single people. Having no one to do the late night talk, no going out on dates, having to sit and enjoy watching memes made on relationships.
But even after all these hardships, the amount of confidence that these people possess is unbelievable.

They don't hesitate to give relationship advices to their friends!!

How many of us had our Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. news feed full of the "Winking Girl" a.k.a Priya Prakash Varrier, the girl who stole the heart of each and every Indian guy within 10 short seconds? The video had been about high-school love and what better time to make it viral than a few days before Valentine's Day.

The girl became an overnight sensation with her mischievous expressions and her I'm-cooler-than-your-average-schoolgirl vibe. The video spawned and endless abyss of memes and trolls on the Internet but all of it boils down to one thing, and that is having a person who can make your heart flutter and make you feel butterflies in your stomach!

Now, the only thing that comes into rescue is HAVING A CRUSH. Now, this a beautiful concept. The best part about being single is that you can have crush on anyone, even on people already in a relationship. Having a crush on someone is indeed an amazing experience in itself. Looking at her all throughout the day, waiting for her to start a conversation, imagining and making all the future plans till your marriage and even beyond. BUT ALL MERE IMAGINATION.

The interesting part about having a crush is that your friends come to know about it even before you know it. But never follow the advices given by your single friends. You will only end up spending your valentine's day with them.

But having a bunch of friends is indeed  amazing. You may start ignoring and spending lesser and lesser time with your friends once you are in a relationship, but the day you break up, it is them only who you will find standing by you, trying to cheer you in all the ways possible, supporting you even you did something wrong.

"Single doesn't have to mean lonely. Single simply means, I'm resting my heart until it's ready to love again,"                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Anonymous

The pursuit of a Dream Life


It is true to say that our lives have become extremely busy and from day to night we are engaged in work that we might not even like doing. But, even then we continue doing it.

The question here is WHY?

The answer given by most of us to this "WHY?" is "We don't have a Choice".

I would like to believe that this is not entirely false.  

"Why don't we have a choice?"
Because, right from the starting of our journey, our lives get predefined, not by us but by others!
There is a golden path that has been shown to most of you, a journey which starts with words,

"Do well in your Class 10 boards, get your desired stream and life would be easy going."

The reality is, a lot of us don't even get the chance to select the stream and subjects we want to study.

The next thing that we get to hear is

"Do well in your class 12 boards, get admitted into a good college and life would be easy going".

And this chain goes on to just focusing and doing well in academics, getting a job and then having an easy going life. But in reality, Life gets only gets harder and harder..

We put aside everything, every desire, every dream, every innovative idea that we think of, in order to achieve something that has a specified path to reach and the end result is known. We prefer following such a path not because we want to, but because our family and society wants us to.

"Why should we just abandon the path we have been following for so long?"

Imagine that you are excited for a movie but someone tells you the entire story, including the ending. Will you still be that excited? Probably not!

So, how can we enjoy our life if all the things are already decided? There would be no uncertainties, no risk and hence, no excitement.

We people do have this tendency of postponing things thinking it not to be the right time.

My friends, what I feel, the time when one decides to do something that he wants to, be it starting  his new business startup or writing a blog, is indeed the "right time" :)

The excitement we get from the ideas that will follow our journey.. those sleepless nights thinking about "What if my idea fails/succeeds?", and then finally getting towards the end..

Even failure would not be as bitter as never trying to do what we want to! Because, be it a success or a failure, but atleast we won't have that guilt of not trying..
This guilt is something which sits within you.. that feeling of not being able to enjoy life your way is an immense contributor to stress and depression, as I mentioned in my previous post..

"The rat race for survival is a bitter factor"

People have become so busy 
in taking care that they don't cross the deadline to achieve their monthly target, that they cross that fine that separates us from robots. Instead of running after something that has no value to you, engage yourself in something that speaks to you on a level other than just survival.

Never stop believing yourself. Be practical and make endless efforts in achieving what you desire.

You need not care about what anyone thinks but be honest to yourself.
One day when you will achieve your goals, life would really be EASY GOING :)
