For most people in our modern-capitalism world, money is the first thing, and sometimes the only thing that measures success in their life. Money can buy power. Money can buy fame. Money can buy time. Sometimes money can even buy a life. So money has become the first common goal for everybody. However, there is something else that can be the measurement of success in life but in actual this is not true.
Success in human life is often measured by numbers. Therefore, everything that can be counted can be used as a measurement. Again, these measurements vary with each career.
The definition of success differs from person to person and field to field. One could take economic success as a touchstone to label a person successful in life, ignoring his of her other failures, like divorce, health, inefficiency, etc. Others may look at a capacity for overcoming challenges, irrespective of what someone earns and the nature of their private life. So who is a successful person and who is a failure? Do school and college grades and examination results provide a way of predicting or ensuring future success? If that is true, then we should encourage as many young people as possible to go to university and work hard to gain formal qualifications. But is it true? Aren’t some college drop-outs like Bill Gates and Richard Branson hugely successful icons of success? And should we automatically consider the millions of young people who have not had the opportunity to gain academic certificates to be failures in life? Success never depends upon grades. If success and opportunities
were measured by grades then the corporate world and potential marriage partners would not ask for biodata in resumes, where other qualifications are also mentioned. Nor would they interview the prospects in order to find out what they are like as people, rather they would give a blind appointment to the people with the best paper qualifications. So qualifications alone are never enough, success depends.
Independence Day 3
Independence Day is a day when people in India pay homage to their leaders and those who fought for India’s freedom in the past. The period leading up to Independence Day is a time when major government buildings are illuminated with strings of lights and the tricolor flutters from homes and other buildings. Broadcast, print and online media may have special contests, programs, and articles to promote the day.
Movies about India’s freedom fighters are also shown on television.
The president delivers the ‘”Address to the Nation” on the eve of Independence Day. India’s prime minister unfurls India’s flag and holds a speech at the Red Fort in Old Dehli. Flag hoisting ceremonies and cultural programs are held in the state capitals and often involve many schools and organizations.
Many people spend the day with family members or close friends. They may eat a picnic in a park or private garden, go to a film or eat lunch or dinner at home or in a restaurant. Other people go kite flying or sing or listen to patriotic songs.
Independence Day is a gazetted holiday in India on August 15 each year. National, state and local government offices, post offices and banks are closed on this day.
Stores and other businesses and organizations may be closed or have reduced opening hours.
Public transport is usually unaffected as many locals travel for celebrations but there may be heavy traffic and increased security in areas where there are celebrations. Independence Day flag raising ceremonies may cause some disruption to traffic, particularly in Dehli and capital cities in India’s states.
The struggle for India’s Independence began in 1857 with the Sepoy Mutiny in Meerut. Later, in the 20th century, the Indian National Congress and other political organizations, under the leadership of Mahatma Gandhi, launched a countrywide independence movement. Colonial powers were transferred to India on August 15, 1947.
The Constituent Assembly, to who power was to be transferred, met to.
Short Essay- Success
Success is something that we all seek. However, do we really know what it is, and how do we achieve it? Webster’s dictionary tells us that success is a “favorable result,” or secondly, “ the gaining of wealth, fame, etc.” I find it extremely discomforting that the accepted definition of success is directly attributed to “the gaining of wealth or fame.” Does that mean that if I’m rich and famous I will be deemed successful? For me, the word “success” has a much deeper meaning. Success cannot be measured in dollars and cents-but in heart and soul. The true meaning of success can only be defined by the individual.
The society we live in today has a tremendous influence on our definition of success. Our modern culture portrays movie stars, professional athletes, and entrepreneurial tycoons as the epitome of the American success story. They drive fancy cars, wear expensive jewelry, live in mansions, and have money to burn. By implication, they are successful. If this is true, then why are so many of these supposedly successful people going to jail, committing suicide, becoming drug addicts, and changing their marital status on a monthly basis? Has this version of success made them happy? Our perceived notion of a successful life is a direct result of mainstream media.
We have been taught to believe that fame and fortune are equal to success and happiness, and that money makes the world go round. Money can make life easier and provide us with things to make our life more comfortable. Money does not, on the other hand, make life better. It can buy you a large house, but it will not help you live a larger life. Money will not assist you in forming a life-long relationship with a husband, wife, son, or daughter. All the money in the world will not afford you this form of success. This version of success comes only through commitment, patience, unconditional love, and sacrifice. In our pursuit of monetary success we have become blinded to the small,.
