News and Updates


Social Media is effecting human life in many aspects like health,family relations, etc. So,I'll be discussing each aspect in detail below. Firstly, I would like to describe or define what is a social media,many of them may be know that,but I would just like to mention that. WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA? Social Media is a platform,computer-based technology that facilitates the sharing of ideas,thoughts and information through the building of virtual networks and communities.  Social media originated as a way to interact with friends and family but was later adopted by businesses that wanted to take advantage of a popular new communication method to reach out to customers. The power of social media is the ability to connect and share information with anyone on Earth, or with many people simultaneously. There are different types of social media namely, Social networks,Social news, Microblogging ,Bookmarking sites,Media sharing,Community blogs,social review sites,video hosting sites,Image shar

Rising in 2020 - EARTHQUAKE outbreaks

INDIA has witnessed 127 miniature earthquakes in the first half of 2020.From  the far east of Arunachal pradesh to the far north of kashmir, the south  to capital Delhi itself , miniute temours became a daily basis news.An increase in detected earthquakes does not mean an  increase in earthquake per se. Population increase,habitation spread,and advances earthquake detection technology all contribute to higher earthquake numbers recorded over time. According to long term records since 1990,we expect about 16 major earthquakes in any given year. In past 44 years there was only 11   times major earthquakes found. The year 2010 had largest earthquake record  with 24 earthquakes more than or equal to 7.0 magnitude. Other years it was 16 per year.
Earthquake may cause additional damage and hampering recovery if continuous. Since 2015 over 10,000 people died due to earthquakes and tsunamis.

Little was understood about earthquakes until emergence  of seismology at the begining of 20th century.seismology  which involves the study of all aspects of  earthquakes,has yielded answers to such long standing questions as  why and  how earth quake occurs.

An Earthquake is a perceptible shaking of the surface of  the Earth,resulting from sudden release of energy in the earth's crust that creates seismic waves.

 Major Earthquake mainly occurs in belts coinciding with the margins of tectonic plates. The most important Earthquake belt is the Circum -pacific belt, which mainly affects coastal religion of pacific ocean - those of New zealand ,New Guinea,Japan,The Aleutian Islands,Alaska, the western coast of North and South America.80% energy released in earthquake come from this. It is known as  pacific ring of  fire as associated with volcanic activity. The 2nd is alpide Belt passes through mediterranean region eastwards from Asia and join circum -pacific belt in the East Indies. 15% energy released here .


The energy released by elastic strain,gravity,chemical reaction or even the motion of massive bodies. All of these elastic strain  is the most important cause as this energy is only that is stored in sufficient quantity in the earth to produce major disturbances known as tectonic earthquakes.
 Some earthquakes are associated with volcanic activity.circum -pacific Belt are example.
Man made earthquakes due to poor planning in infrastructural activities like fracking for oil,dambuliding etc.
Another reason can be cooling of earth detected by scientists. It cause contraction of the earth's crust which also volcanic disturbance causing.

Particularly In Indian perspective in 2017 suspected ,Indian tectonic plate is slowly going underneath Eurasian plate per year. May be due to this energy accumulation in this region there is greater magnitude Earthquake.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people. For one, it is a sense of accomplishment, non- violence for another, salvation to a few and a lot more to others. But what peace exactly is? And how can we attain it? Peace is acceptance. A vision of seeing things and extracting optimism out of it. Peace makes life easier. To be satisfied is what peace is. To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
