Some Guilty Pleasures.

Do you feel that life is boring? If yes, you are a person engaged in a single task. It may be day jobs, studies or something like that. Happiness is to be sought and found. Pleasure-seekers generally miss it. People often think that money can bring happiness. But this is not true.

In this generation, everyone is behind money which could only bring unhappiness. To feel free one should avoid it, at least while you want to be happy. In this beautiful world, you cannot be bored. Frankly saying I never had any chance to be bored. Sitting in house will surely bore you. So try to get out of the house. It is just a place for resting. I found out my pleasures in the following activities.

Sight seeing.

There are many beautiful things around your house. You never had seen them in your busy life. Try to find it. In my childhood days, I used to cycle a lot around my house just to see lakes, I loved them most. It used to be happiest time of my childhood. You can also go to such nice places which are not crowded. Because crowded place will certainly withdraw our attention from these sceneries.

Spent time with family.

I used to do it regularly. You will feel relaxed when you spent your time with brothers, sisters or even with parents. Keep half an hour of the day for this purpose. Talk to them everything and anything you know. Thus they will also feel happy. Don’t try to spend your time with family to fight.

Friends.

It has turned out to be a part of human life. Try to spent time with your friends. This doesn’t mean that you should be online with them. This will bring any pleasure neither to you nor to him. Try to meet in real world. A friend doesn’t mean your collage buddies. It can be anyone who you feel is a true friend. Times spend with your friends is the most precious in a day. So try to practice it.

Journeys.

Try to conduct a long trip for at least once in a year. Traveling can provide entertainment as well as education to a person. Try to discover more places. Avoid traveling by airways as it won’t provide you enough pleasure. You should experience each part of a journey. So travel through land as far as possible. I love to move by train. Even though it moves faster, one would be able to see our beautiful nature.

These are the ways I found pleasure. Any games will also provide me happiness. But I won’t get any time for it after practicing all these things. Practicing these things could also turn your life. Be happier in life. It occurs only once.

Blogging strategy- How to keep it updated.

Do you worry about how to keep the topics in the blog updated? If yes, you are somewhat like me. I didn’t know what does bloggers mean updating. I thought that a post have to be edited frequently to kept it updated. It is a wrong idea. After reading many blogs I came to know that the problem with me is that I don’t know any basics about blogging. You too may be feeling like this. Now here are some basic information’s about blogs that one should know.

Blog is a technique of website in which one can create comments and write opinions on a particular topic. As the internet grew to what it is now, people wanted to know which website is updated regularly. For those who are unfamiliar with this concept, blogging is a proactive approach of responding to website content with one’s feelings, thoughts, fears, opinions and comments. A blog is simply written in a friendly format like news which is updated frequently. A blog works similar to a newspaper or something like that which provide new information frequently.

A blog serves the sole purpose of educating and entertaining people. Just like a good daily news program, or local newspaper, good blogs provide you with education and entertainment. A good blog is that which contains a lot of contents and entertains people. A blog is a website which is always being updated with up to date information. This is the most important sentence of this post. Try to practice this frequently.

And this is what blog is. To call a blog, blog it should contain a lot of information. If you dealt well with these things, you may be able to understand what updating of blog actually is. It just means that you should keep your blog in motion by posting at least five posts in a week. If you are able to do so frequently, your blog on one day will turn out to be a good one.

A blog is a website which is always being updated with up to date information.”

Gambhir’s decision was proved right by some brilliant bowling performance by Dirk Nannes and Maharoof. Kings XI lost their wickets at regular interval. Only Ravi Bopara tried to do some work for Kings XI. He lost partners and ran short of them. But still he managed to score a fifty run.

After the loss of AB Devilliers wicket, Gambhir decide to win the match by himself. He played a captain’s knock of 72 runs and guided his team to the victory lane.

The game was an example of how twenty-20 cricket is all about. There was some brilliant batting, bowling and fielding. Both these teams fought very well to the last over of their innings. At the end Mumbai Indians defeated Rajastan Royals by a narrow 4 run margin.

After winning the toss Mumbai Indians had opted to bat first. Most batsmen tried to prove that the decision was correct. Sanath and Sachin had given Mumbai a good start. But they were not able to continue. It was two youngsters, S. Tiwary and A. Rayudu, who took the game away from Royals. These two batsmen had made a mammoth 110 partnership for the fifth wicket. When they departed Mumbai was sitting pretty with a score of 180 with several balls left in the innings. And at the end Mumbai managed to score a mammoth total of 212 with the loss of six wickets.

They had no happy moment in the game till the arrival of Yousuf Pathan who hit a 37 ball 100 to take the Royals to victory lane. He hit the ball around the whole side of the park. Again some brilliant fielding by Mumbai had put them back in the game when Pathan was run out by Sathish on his own bowling.

The game was completely filled with entertainment. Youngsters have played well for their franchises as they showed courage even when they lost it. At the end Royals just managed to score 208 runs with the loss of seven wickets which was 4 runs short of Mumbai Indians score. The whole effort made by Pathan ended in vain.

KKR v/s DC match 1 result.

This match was a great start to this great event. Kolkata Knight Riders have won the inaugural match of the IPL season 3 by defeating the defending champion Deccan Chargers by 11 runs.

Deccan Chargers after winning the toss elected to field first. Adam Gilchrist’s choice to field first turned out to be a good decision when Chaminda Vaas in his first over scalped two important wickets of the Knight Riders. It was a moment of success for Deccan Chargers. But suddenly Knight Riders felt relieved when Brad Hodge had started some fireworks. But it didn’t last long. At the half time of the first innings, Knight Riders just managed to score around 5.7 runs per over. But the Deccan Chargers had managed to take 4 important wickets of Knight Riders.

When Angelo Mathews and Owaish Shah joined at the crease, no one would have thought that the game would turn around for Knight Riders. In the next ten overs, these two batsmen managed to score 104 runs without giving a relief for the defending champions. Thus Knight Riders managed to score 161 runs with the loss of 4 wickets, which no one would have imagined them to score. It was a good total in a twenty 20 match.

When Deccan Chargers started their batting, they might have thought that it would be a nice batting track. But Charl Langeveldt proved that it is wrong by taking the edge of Gilchrist’s bat. But Brad Hodge at second slip was not able to hold on to one of the toughest chance. There was several such incidents when the ball went passed the Knight Rider fielders. Gilchrist was again dropped by Charl Langeveldt when seem to be going good.

But Gilchrist and VVS Laxman gave a good start to the Deccan Chargers as they managed to score around 8 runs per over at the half stage of the game. But then again Knight Riders had turned the match after the half stage. They scalped two quick wickets and that too of the important batsmen’s in their lineup. Suddenly the game turned around as Knight Riders managed to take wickets at regular interval and thus reducing their run rate.

At the end, Deccan Chargers managed to score 150 runs with the loss of seven wickets in twenty overs which was 11 run shorter than the score made by Knight Riders. As a fan of Kolkata Knight Rider, I am very happy that they had made a good start in this 45 day event. And at the end the score board looked like this..

• Kolkata Knight Riders won by 11 runs
• KKR Score: 161/4 in 20 Overs
• DC Score: 150/7 in 20 Overs

IPL match results.

Environmental degradation.

This is not an idea that struck me in a sudden. I has been working for a long time on this topic and found that our lives had made great worry for the future generations in a way that I can even post a million posts under this category. I wish each and every person in this world should consider these things given under.

Environmental degradation, as the name suggests, is the large scale depletion of the Earth and its resources. These depletions are mainly caused due to the human activities. Animals and human population behave similarly and pollute their habitats, exhaust natural resources necessary for survival. This did not start in the past century or so. Man has been depleting Earth since he was born. Following are some of the environmental problems facing the world today.

Soil.

Degradation of productive soil is one among million problems. Productive farmlands and forests are converted into deserts. Once the whole world was under forest but now they have turned out to be a rare sight to see one. Even this is the same thing which is causing most problems to human kind as Earth had started responding.

Water.

Human use on water had increased such that millions of other animals don’t even get a single drop to settle their thirst. The replacement of the water by rain, snow and other forms of precipitation are not able to change shortage of water supply. Water pollution is one of the causes for this shortage.

Air.

Air consists of about 20 percent of oxygen. But when the Earth evolved it was not so. Its atmosphere contained mainly carbon dioxide and there was hardly any oxygen. Green plants converted this carbon dioxide into oxygen through photosynthesis. Eventually, the rate of oxygen began to increase. Animal life must have oxygen for respiration. Thus, animal life is completely dependent on plants. But now these plants are destroyed. Hence we are calling our death. Air pollution is another important hazard the world is facing today. Mass planting is needed to avoid the end of the world.

This is just an introduction to this topic. Causes and effects of these problems will be given in a detail in the coming posts. I started posting about this topic to make you people know that you can change the destiny of the whole world. Take initiative to protect our world. Plant at least a tree to save our lives.

Before destroying any environmental resource, think of these following lines. “We have not inherited this Earth from our fore fathers. But we have borrowed it from our children’s.” Famous lines by a famous person. Sorry, I can’t remember his name.
