Effects Of Playing PUBG: Is It Really Bad For You?

PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround, better known by its acronym, PUBG, is an epidemic in today’s world. Well, those are not my words. Those are the words spoken by some renowned person who I won’t mention here for some reason. However, that’s not the point. There point here is what if PUBG is not a harmful game at all? What if what we read in the newspapers and what we watch on the television about the mishappenings related to PUBG are not true at all. 

Is playing PUBG bad?

Is it bad for you to play a game and have some really good time? What’s the harm here? Well, if you ask me personally, I would say that there is no harm in playing PUBG or any war game for that matter, as long as you know that you are not addicted to it and it doesn’t affect your work and personal life.

Let me tell you one interesting fact here. A lot of my friends choose to play PUBG rather than having a conversation with me. I know some of you might be able to relate to it. This has become common everywhere. Now, you might be thinking that I am talking negatively about the game just because I don’t like to play the game. No. That is not true. 

I was a big-time PUBG addict a month back from now. I would come back from work and dive right into the sofa and play PUBG for three to four hours straight. That is how addicted I was to this game. No, let me rephrase that. I was addicted to the adrenaline rush I would get after I own the game. “Winner winner, chicken dinner” as they say. 

However, I consider myself lucky to have come across a story in the newspaper where they reported a story of two brothers who got into a fight over the game. The consequence of the fight was gruesome as one of them got seriously injured and got hospitalized. Two days later he died. Yes, he just DIED because of a game. Now please stop making excuses that events like this do not happen every day. 

Stop playing the game and look around you. 

While you might not find accidents like these happening around you, you will surely observe that a lot of people get affected by the game. PUBG is a pleasure for the player who is playing. The people around you – family and friends are affected badly. Yes, I might have started sounding like I hate the game and I’m trying to convince you to stop playing the game. But, I am just trying to bring across the facts from an onlookers perspective. 

With violence being its essence, and the amount of time spent playing PUBG, it has some serious impact on youth’s mentality. What is surprising is that it is not just the youth who is addicted to this game. A lot of grown-ups play the game and have become promoters of this game. It is sad but it is true.

So, where is it leading us?

I’m not judging this game in any way. It is fine to play any game just for fun a little while. I remember a time when we used to play games like Tic Tac Toe. There was so much fun playing the game and there was no agenda to make the game addictive. Even today you will find the online versions of the Tic Tac Toe 2 player game. They are interesting, fun and there is no objective to make you addicted to playing these games again and again. But, that is not the case with games like PUBG. They are designed to make the player spend hours playing it. The effect is so much that players spend six to eight hours playing the game daily without even realizing it.

As per reports from a recent statistics, in the United States, most people are spending six hours on these games every single day. The numbers are no less in India, a country which has seen tremendous growth in internet users in the last couple of years.

But, it makes me feel like a hero. Why shouldn’t I play it?

How to write content that gets shared

If you are a content writer and find that people do not share your content, this article could be really helpful. In this article, I’m going to talk about the various techniques that generate tons of social shares for your content.

To start with, let me tell you that writing content isn’t a problem. Yes, your content does affect your social shares, but that actual reason for fewer shares is something else. If you are getting less traffic on social media sites that means people aren’t even reading your content.

apps-blur-button-close-up-267350

Now, I’m gonna share with you how to write content that generates more social shares. Based on all to tests I have done I can tell you, it’s not really about the content, it’s actually about the headline. I’ve learned that seven out of ten people read your headline, but only three out of ten people will read the rest of your content. But if you want to generate more shares for your content it’s all about the headline. And here are some ways you can write amazing headlines. 

Make sure a headline is neither too short nor too long; it should be around five to seven words. When your headlines are too long, for some reason, it’s just overwhelming and people don’t wanna share. When it’s too short people don’t really get what your contents are about and they’re not really going to share it. 

The next thing you can do is use adjectives while writing your headline. When you use words like effortlessly, people will be more eager to know about the content. For example, “five ways to effortlessly lose weight” that’s way better than “five ways to lose weight”. Everybody wants to know about the easy route.

The third tip when you’re writing headlines is, create some mystery. For example, the ten benefits of lime honey juice, number six will shock you. Now people will be keen to know, what’s number six? People are much more likely to share your content. Now if your number seven is a plain point, people are gonna be like oh I don’t trust this guy anymore. I’m not gonna share his content. So don’t trick people, give them really amazing content.

The next thing is you can make your Headline more unique by giving it a stunning look. For this, you can use some online tools like Bold Text Generator. Bold Text Generator is a tool that can convert your normal fonts into bold fonts. You can use this tool to create bold and fancy texts and add extra charm to your headline. 

Make sure when you are using these tactics you have amazing tips and techniques. It’s really that simple. If you do that with your headlines, you are going to generate way more social shares. Generating social traffic isn’t just about your content.

It’s more about your headline. Hope these tips will help you to increase the views and shares of your content in social sites.

How I am travelling the world on a budget

Travelling is one of the best things that a human being can do in today’s age. It is known as a stressbuster and for a good reason. There was a time when I was stressed with all that was happening in my life. I was worried about keeping my job and providing for my family. But, things have turned around when I started travelling

You might be wondering how I manage to do my regular 9 top 5 job and travel at the same time. Well, as a matter of fact, I no longer do a regular day job. I work part-time and I do other odd jobs online whenever I find the time. The best thing about this job is that it gives me the liberty to work from anywhere and not worry about paying my bills. 

person-standing-on-hill-2819631

While I manage to earn enough to fund my travel, I also make sure to not blow up my budget. I strictly follow some rules which help me travel within budget. These rules work very well for me. I hope it does the same for you. Go through this list and find some interesting tips that can help your travel the world on a budget:

  1. Create a budget

One of the initial things that I do every time I go on a trip is set a travel budget. I make a spreadsheet and list all the things which need to be accounted for. From the tiniest expense details like buying snacks to higher expenses like flight tickets and hotel bookings, I plan and record all my expenses and make sure to never go overboard on my daily budget.

  1. Travel via local transport

Once I land in a new country, the first thing I do is figure out the best way to find local transports for travelling. There is a lot of information online on this topic but I choose to do my research on the spot and find the means of local transport right after I reach the country. The reason I prefer travelling in local transport (mostly buses) is because it is comparatively cheaper than other means of transportation. This is a strategy that has worked for me every time.

  1. Look for cheap accommodation

Plan your accommodation well in advance. There are some online portals where you can find cheap hostels. These are places where you can connect with other travellers from different places all over the world. There are websites where you can arrange your stay with the local people of the place. One such website is Couchsurfing.com. The best part of this strategy is that I can save enough money to afford going to the best places for partying at night. Last year, on my visit to Rome, I visited some of the best places for nightlife entertainment. Here is a website which has all you need to know about nightlife in cities from different parts of the world. I find the information here very useful during my journey. Make sure to check it out.

These are some basic things that I follow during my travel to ensure that I can travel more and spend less

Education system of India

Education is a process of giving or receiving a systematic set of instructions to acquire any skill, knowledge, values, thoughts, and habits. It can be through teaching, story-telling, and discussion. Now, let’s talk about the education system in India. In ancient times, the Gurukul System of education was followed. In this, students who want to seek education go to Guru’s place or Gurukul to attain education. This system of education was not only confined to science and mathematics but covered all aspects of life including values and beliefs. The good thing about this education system was the strong bond between students and teachers. The system went on for many years until the education system has changed to Modern Education System. 

adult-boys-children-city-618116

The Modern System of education came in 1830 under British Raj. This system was brought to India by famous British historian Thomas Babington Macaulay. Unlike the Gurukul system, this system of education was confined to science and mathematics, focused on classroom teaching, and the relationship between students and teachers was not as strong as in the Gurukul system. Not all were benefited from this system, and the reason was the lack of schools, teachers, and knowledge. 

By the time India got independence, the education system in India was not up to the mark, and many political leaders had realized the importance of education. The reason behind that was the poor literacy rate of rural and urban India. To tackle this problem the Union Government of India established several Education Commissions from 1948 till 1966. Finally, to make education better an education policy was adopted by the Parliament in 1968. This made education compulsory for all children up to the age of 14. A lot of other key steps were taken in this policy and it also assured better training and qualification of teachers. This policy increased the literacy rate of India and also increased the reach of education.

In the current education system of India, vast improvements have been done due to the availability of high tech devices, mobile phones, and laptops. Today’s education system enables the reach of education and lessens the dependency on teachers. It also provides more educational Institutions and the growth of opportunities. In the current education system in India, students are more focused on theoretical knowledge. Students concentrate more on acquiring a good percentage and grades rather than values and practical knowledge. From one point of view, it seems quite right because a high CGPA is essential for admission to a good institution and to find a better career option. Since I have mentioned the term CGPA, I will explain a bit about it. CGPA is the short term used for Cumulative Grade Point Average. It is simply an average of grade points used in schools and colleges to measure the overall academic performance of the students. Few of the Indian Institutions use CGPA whereas in general most of the Indian educational institutions use percentage for grading students. However, students can convert percentage to CGPA by using some tools. Many websites are available on the internet that can be used to convert percentage to CGPA. 

Offline War Games

Many people love war games, for them playing war games is the best way to pass the leisure with fun. But their happy mood gets stains when their data’s speed starts to play with them. And that part is the worst about playing war games on slow data.

Thus, we need a few war games which use data only once as to be downloaded. And then let the users enjoy it longer without any data related distraction. 

And those games are said to be offline war games. Here are some of the best offline war games.

Hurdles of playing online

Playing games online is not that simple deal. You have to go through several obstructions to play and have to face few consequences after playing as well; as

  • Yes, data nowadays is very inexpensive (Rs. 359/ unlimited calls + 1.5 GB data per day for 84 days). We are getting it almost free.
  • But cheap is not always best; with fewer charges we are having a poor quality of data in terms of speed and accessibility. 
  • Data flows properly only until a short period of time, after that it starts lacking; Causing sudden interruptions. This irritates players a lot.
  • Also using systems with enabled mobile data or wifi function leads to extra consumption of the battery.
  • Rapid charge and discharge process of battery results in degradation of its fine quality.
  • When few energy processes like charging, using data and playing games are all done together, then even your system may start to perform malfunction.

Hence, the idea to play games online does not sound intelligent!

But, now the questions like “should I stop playing?” or “Is there any alternate way to keep playing?” arises.

I must answer “yes, there is something like an alternate way to keep playing with the exact enthusiasm as with online games”. And that is offline games.

Why offline games?

  • There are no worries about the internet or its speed after installing offline games once.
  • They less affect the battery or system as compared to online games.
  • You can play them at any corner of the World, without begging someone for the data.
  • You can resume your game from the point where you left; this is not possible in online games.

Benefits of offline games

There are many benefits of offline games over online games. Let’s go through them one by one

  • Offline games are beneficial in terms of the system’s life over online games.
  • Offline gaming saves your time.
  • You can never get irritated due to network speed issue.
  • You can resume your game from the point where you left it.
  • You do not need data after installation.( updating is an exception)
  •  Offline games are less addictive than online games; so your playing remains the same and do not over power you.
  • Offline games also do not contain ads (additional graphics displaying for the sake of advertisement of any product).

Diversity

India is a diverse country. Indians have a rich and diverse culture. There are so many customs and languages in India that you will be amazed. Every state in India has its own diverse culture. They have their own dresses. They have their unique cuisines. In spite of having so many differences, there are a lot of examples where you can see the unity among Indian people. This is what makes India a unique country and this is what makes India one of the best countries in the world.

Bollywood Magic

When talking about India, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind is Bollywood. There is so much craze for Bollywood in India that it has become this country’s trademark for people living outside India. It would be an understatement to say that Bollywood has just entertained Indians. It has actually influenced a lot of people’s lives in India. This is another reason why living in India is awesome.

Cricket Cult

With all the diversity and uniqueness in India, there is yet something that unites people all the time – cricket. Cricket is not just a game in India. It is a cult that brings together people from all walks of life. If you go to any Indian household, you’ll definitely find someone or other who takes interest in cricket. It has become a part of people’s lives here and it has made India an amazing country to live in.

Good governance

In the past five years, India has seen tremendous growth in various sectors, thanks to the Government of India which is making every effort to make the country progressive and prosperous. The current ruling party in India has set a benchmark for good governance through various social welfare schemes for the citizens of India. Schemes like Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and others have made people believe that the governance of this country is in good hands.

That was our take on the various reasons for India to be considered one of the best countries in the world today. There is a lot more about India that makes it the best. One of the best things that I have liked about this country is the Government’s initiative to solve the major problems in the country. Launching schemes like the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana is a clear example of how this country is on its way to becoming the world’s best country in the near future.

Things that worried me always

As a child, I was afraid of a lot of things. There were stories of ghosts and there were TV shows which scared the hell out of me. But, more than that, there were other things that worried me the most. These were things related to my study. I was worried about passing my maths and science tests.

This sense of worry had always been there throughout my school life. Although I passed those tests most of the time, it was after having spent many sleepless nights hovering over thoughts of what if I fail. This is the reason why a lot of times I spend alone wondering what I did wrong to feel this way and why others don’t feel the way I do.

black-and-white-man-model-25759

Ten years down the line, while I have a stable job and a regular life, this fear of math is still there. My job though doesn’t involve much number crunching. However, it is one of the most technical jobs of today and at times I find myself in a mess. I remember once having to look back into my textbooks for learning power factors. I consider myself lucky to have come across this online power factor calculator which helped me get over this complexity.

While I made use of the power factor calculator to solve that problem in hand, I had a thought that made me act the way I had never done. I decided to punch my worries right in the face. To start with, I took upon this fear of maths and analyzed my fear and thought of all the ways that I could use to get over this fear. I started reading about maths. I started solving tough equations and I started doing all that needs to be done to conquer the fear of maths.

It took me a year and a half to get rid of this whole math fear. Now I’m so confident in anything related to numbers that I get things done quicker than ever before. This has led to multiple promotions at work and I’ve developed a new sense of confidence in myself. Now I’m always looking for mathematical equations to be solved or anything related to numbers. It is no longer a fear for me. It is now a game.

The dilemma of a 90s kid

I’ve always thought of myself as a lucky kid to have been born in the 90s. There has always been something special in my life to carry on till I reached adulthood. The memories of the time spent in the 90s always make me feel like going back in time and experiencing those days again. The nostalgia is extreme at times and there have been a lot of instances where I’ve shown my over-excitement when talking about my childhood. 

The dilemma

While everything seems to be going so well in the present, there are days when I feel out of place, especially when I have a conversation with teenagers of today. Till a few days back, I used to think that I know all the new slang and cool terms used by today’s younger generation, but I was wrong. The new generation of kids have so complex terminology that it is really difficult to keep up.

Why am I talking about teenagers? 

I’m talking about teenagers because I have a bunch of teenagers in my colony who constantly stay in my sight. I’m a freelancer and I spent most of my day working in my apartment alone. But, when I get bored, I do get out and play cricket with these teenage guys. That is when I get into a dilemma. I wonder if my generation is the perfect or is it just my misconception I have.

adults-black-and-white-casual-1374542

I’ve no answers yet. But, I can tell you that playing with those teenagers is a good feeling. I sometimes realize that the feeling is not different from the time when I was a kid and played cricket with my friends. This makes me wonder how I, as a kid from the 90s, am different from these kids.

Social media

Social media makes me feel a little updated with the modern world. However, I do sometimes observer that teenagers today are taking over the internet and making us feel puny. That is when I find myself questioning – how do I stay updated constantly? What do I do to become cool like the kids of today? Well, I have no answers.

Gaming

Sometimes, I just give up thinking all these and start playing with my gaming consoles from the 90s. Yes, I still have them with me. Sometimes, I play mobile games too. I recently got to know about this website called gamesnowifi.com. This has been a great resource for finding the games from my childhood. I’m not good at the online games of today and these are great for me. But, of course, I want to play the games of today. I wish it could be easy as the games of the 90s.

Conclusion

That was my take on life as a 90s kid. I hope you found this post useful and informative. In case you have any queries or suggestions related to this post, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

India In Details

There are a lot of things that I could tell you about India. It is one of the best countries in the world for a reason. Not just one reason. There are actually a lot of things that make this country one of the best in the world. When it comes to being tolerant, India is an example to the world. For centuries, this country has been conquered and ruled by people from other parts of the world. It has been tolerant towards this conquests and has never tried conquering another nation for as far as history goes. While India’s tolerant attitude is certainly a praiseworthy aspect of the nation, there are a lot of things that you need to know about India which will blow your mind and make you wonder at the greatness of this nation.
