Warning! You Are Slowly Killing Yourself By Doing These 5 Things

Written By Pathikrit Banerjee

Life is the biggest reality show on this planet, everything is so unexpected. There are challenges everywhere; each incident brings out a different side of our personality. Some things hurt us deeply, yet we can’t change anything about them. From the atmosphere inside our workplace to the relationships we are in, imperfection is present everywhere. We do so many things for the people we love, but it doesn’t always come back. This creates depression and we can feel our self-confidence becoming lesser and lesser. You deserve some love too. If the people around you are not giving it to you, it is time for you take up the responsibility. Your journey matters, your emotions matter, “You” matter.

1. Feeding the negative thoughts: Negativity is present all around us, it is very easy to let it inside our brain. Social media promotes perfection; we constantly keep comparing our life with others. Acceptance is the key here; it bridges the gap between expectation and reality. It is not a quick process, acceptance comes slowly. But once it arrives, the confusion is cleared. You have integrity, always value that. Your struggles can’t go to waste; keep marching on the path you have chosen for yourself.

2. Next Addiction: This is a strange addiction in which your mind tells you to search for better things. From a better job to a better relationship, next addiction will never let you settle. Be happy with the things you have right now and try to fix the weak areas.

3.Trying to please everyone: People are different, you must accept this quickly. They have different agendas and your job is not to fulfill that. You have limits, never cross those boundaries to please someone. People should see your weaknesses and learn to accept you.

4. Overthinking: Nothing kills your happiness faster than overthinking. It is a toxic thing; you need to remove from your system. It never solved any problems; it always exerted extra pressure on your mind. Keep yourself occupied with various things, there should be no room for negative thoughts inside your mind. Break the imaginary cages and free your spirit, good vibes are precious.

5. Holding on to the past: We all have made mistakes in life, it is natural. Everyone wants to press the “undo” button at least once, but life gives us only one shot. Instead of thinking about the mistakes, we should try to learn from them. This is the only way; we can make the future better. Remembering those troubled memories only brings us pain, it keeps us captive. The past can never hurt us, if we don’t let it.

4 Texts You Should Never Send Your Ex (Bengali Version)

Written by Pathikrit Banerjee

Texting is cool in many ways. It perfectly hides our feelings and puts us on a comfortable ground. We can express some feelings through texting, which we can’t express in person. Late night texting brings out our softer side. We are often weak and vulnerable. As the night progresses, all types of crazy thoughts come to our mind. The first thing that comes in this list is texting our ex. No! Hell No! Don’t even think of doing this. Well as they say, don’t look back; you are not going in this direction. The past is behind us for a reason, we should never concentrate on what could have been.

But, I want to send this message so bad.

Well, have you heard of an option on your phone known as “Delete”? Yeah, that. Use That. Texting can lift the covers of some unfinished business and things may not go along so well. One careless text can bring the apocalypse and you will not want that in a lifetime. Focus on the good things. Text your friend, crack a joke. If you are still not satisfied, try sending some inspirational quote in your family’s WhatsApp group. Life moves on, so should you. Forgive and forget, let karma do its work. So what are the texts you should avoid? Once go through this list, it might actually save you.

1. Kemon achis? (How are you?) – This is lame and simply pathetic. You should have no desire to know about your ex’s present condition. If you are so concerned about that person? Why did you live them on the first place? And, if you were on the receiving end of the betrayal, you should never ever text that person again. Think about your self-respect. Move on, man! “Kemon Achis” can initiate all kinds of answers and trust me; you are not prepared for that.

2. Ami Ajo Tokei Valobasi! (I still love you) – Oh Boy! It gets lamer and lamer. Relationships don’t come with a warranty card. Things can end anywhere, anyhow. Love is a divine emotion, if it doesn’t work out, let it be. Relationships can’t work forcefully, when the spark dies, everything dies. Remember, you can’t keep anyone in your life, who doesn’t want to stay. Let everything go, see what stays. Still love that person? Keep it in yourself. Don’t ever go to the same thing that broke you.

3. Kar Sathe Achis Ekhon? (Who are you with now?) – Seriously? Why do you have so many questions? Focus on who you are with. This question is so dangerous, that it can easily start a fight. The other person is not supposed to answer this question and it is none of your business. For the last time, stop thinking about it.

4. Amar Kache Please Fire Ae (Please, Come back to me) – Saving the dessert for the last. This is it folks, this is it. Nothing can be more pathetic than this. Sure, you would love to have that ‘special’ person back in your life. But, why make a weak request? Accept the changes in your life and thank god for the new beginning. Everything happens for a reason.

Well, this is the end of this segment of –“Awkward Texts”. We will surely come back with more compilations later. Relationships are hard, it is very hard to think practically, when emotions overpower us. But always keep your head high and face life boldly. You were born to do amazing things.

The Festive Flavour! What Makes The “Puja Season” So Special For Foodies?

Written by Pathikrit Banerjee

As Goddess Durga defeats the demon “Mahisasur”, the festivities begin in full swing. People from all cultures mingle to treat their taste buds. Bengalis are known for their “food adventures”, they always have a handful of delicious experiences to share. This city of culture loves the Goddesses; the enthusiasm for this festival can’t be described in words. The artisans go through a back-breaking process to breathe life in these idols, the happy faces in the pandals is their biggest reward. The city gets lit up in a beautiful fashion, there are colours everywhere. This is not just a feast for the mind; it is a feast for the soul.

Exploring the True Meaning of Durga Puja

We can’t imagine Durga Puja without the rhythmic beats of the dhak, the themed pandals, the colourful attires and the addas. But the gastronomic delights can’t be ignored; there are lots of good foods. Pandal hoppers move from one pandal to another and eat a variety of items. It fills their heart with joy, this is their main focus. From roadside stalls to fine restaurants, every place is filled with foodies. The diets go on a rest for these four days; spicy food gives a forbidden joy. “Puja is equivalent to junk food, we want nothing else,” said Krishanu Banerjee, a student of the 12th standard. “We rarely eat homemade food in the Pujas, it just doesn’t make sense,” stated Sarbani Mukherjee, a MBA student.

Cultural Revolution – A Big Change is Happening

The typical Puja scenes are gradually changing, people have changed their preferences. The connected generation’s idea about ‘Puja’ is different; they prefer their personal space more. It is an era where people are starting to prefer “Virtual Durga Puja Tours”, the long line in the famous pandals can be a major turn-off. “It is just too tiring, the crowd is maddening, we get exhausted after a few hours,” said Ritam Sen, an Engineering aspirant. The best conversations always take place over good food. Millennials just want to connect with each other and have their favourite dishes; crowded places don’t attract them anymore. In a span of five years, we can witness a new Kolkata, but food is something that will always bring people together.

Russia Calling: A World Of Opportunities Waiting For Indian Students

This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity and students simply can’t afford to miss this. The Russian Education Fair just ended in the city of Kolkata and there were some major takeaways from the event. The contemporary world presents many challenges and Russian education handles them perfectly. A total of thirteen Russian Government institutions participated in this fair which was held on 12th May, 2016 at the Russian Centre for Science & Culture, Kolkata. The top Medical and Engineering universities of Russia interacted with the students and they got a clear idea about the higher education scenario of the country.

Why Education Fairs are important?

The approach of marketing has changed quite a lot in the recent past and customers are tired of targeted messages. Exhibitions handle this issue differently as customers attend the event with a much more relaxed mindset. Educational institutions have increased in number and the competition in student enrollment is huge. Education fairs have become extremely important for both students and teachers. Volgograd State Medical University, Tver State Medical University, Northern State Medical University, Moscow Aviation Institute and several other renowned universities participated in this fair and they provided both UG and PG Programmes in medicine, engineering, sports management, aviation, aerospace and other disciplines.
