Things that you should not be doing as a leader

by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Long before I was a traveler and blogger, I used to work for a local newspaper. Although I didn’t like my job, I was pretty good at what I did. Considering my performance and dedication, the company promoted me to a higher level as a Team Leader. I was told what my duties will be, however, was not informed how to handle the team. I was still able to do my work with the same enthusiasm and manage my team’s work at the same time.

Things kept going like this until one day a meeting of all the leaders took place. It was a kind of workshop on Leadership and Leadership Qualities. It helped me in learning a lot of things that I didn’t know before. We were told that a Leader must be professional, friendly, and at times, strict also. The Leadership Qualities that were told to us were:

  • Resilience
  • Confidence
  • Delegation
  • Empathy
  • Humility
  • Communication
  • Influence
  • Vision
  • Accountability
  • Positivity
  • Integrity


While these are good qualities ...

Drop It Youth - Fight against Plastic Pollution
08. February 2020 at 20:06
by Sainath Manikandan
We live on a blue planet, with oceans and seas covering more than 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface. Oceans feed us, regulate our climate, and generate most of the oxygen we breathe. Oceans are facing threats as a result of human activity.

Every year, an estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in the world’s oceans. The forefathers of Abu Dhabi owed their living to the waters of the Arabian Gulf and it continues to teem with life. One of the world’s largest and densest colonies of dugongs live here, as do many seabird colonies. Several hundred thousand migrating shorebirds visit each year. Abu Dhabi also hosts approximately 110 km2 of mangroves. But these waters and the plant and animal species within them now face immense threats, on several fronts due to plastic pollution. My campaign aims to reduce the carbon footprint.

Dealing with Another Kind of Poverty
08. February 2020 at 19:59
by Simona Kovachevska
The real question is not whether the education is a way out of poverty. The real question is whether alleviating poverty is the best way for improving the education. How does changing the point of view change the story?

We were supposed to stand on the brink of a new era regarding the constant technology development, economy growth, globalization and sustainability. However, standing on that brink may last longer as the recent tests in education showed disappointing results. The reading proficiency among students does not reach satisfactory levels and as long as the reading skills are considered crucial for understanding and specializing in any subject in future, this could be the new challenge we are facing with.


Recently World Bank introduced the concept of Learning Poverty which means being unable to read and understand a simple text by age of 10. According to the brief from World Bank 260 million children are not participating in education processes and 53 percent of children in low- and middle-income countries, or even 80 percent...

Do’s and Don’ts in a Writing Competition
21. January 2020 at 21:48
by Tochukwu Benedict Ezeifekwuaba
Why do people enter a writing competition? Few enter to practice. Some enter to motivate themselves to complete their stories. But there is a reason why everyone who enters a writing contest needs…..to Win! As an editor, writer and a proofreader that have been judging a hundred writing contests during those times, I have discovered what it entails to ruin chances and win an entry.

Let us get the obvious out of the way. Submitting grammatically correct and proofed entry in the needed genre that attains the needed word count and following the contest theme is just the minimum or the least requirement if you intend to win a contest. If you actually want to lose a writing competition, you can do all or any of the following:

-          Unknowingly or knowingly go against the grammar rules: if you intend to win, observe and discover the accurate and the necessary grammar. Again, I do not actually need to inform you about this or do I?

-          Do not proofread: Do I actually need to inform you to proofread? Personally, I am so lenient when it entails typos. If the piece is...

by Deepak Lal
The emptiness of the heart is what makes me remember the Gautama Buddha. It is the feeling of nothingness when you own nothing but yourself. Buddha tried to know the secret of happiness, death, life, sufferings. and how to escape from these all.

Understanding the whole scenarios behind the hidden curtains of unknowing minds, Human Being stays in a state of deep slumber and unconsciousness, that’s why he becomes unknown to the realities of life and happiness. Humans always want to unlock the doors of happiness for the peace of mind and heart. For this, Millions of people are born around the globe to teach you, give you thy keys, and make you a learned person in terms of your social life. They teach us the very lessons of living a life. Siddhartha Gautama is one of them. 


Whenever I hear or listen to the word Buddha, one thing strikes my mind that is Emptiness of Heart. Emptiness is throwing away all that you have, in order to make a space in a heart for the One Who is in us. It is the Human nature that he desires or longs for some...
