Never give up

Failure is only opportunity  to begin again, this time more intelligently.            -Henry Ford World is a movie of ups and downs, we all are its main characters  trying to make our way up to the top. Only thing which makes the difference is our attitude, that do we push forward to overcome problems  or just simply  give up. Never give up doesn't mean to keep doing same thing in same way what we need is to analyze and be smart enough to change when needed. A real life example of the physi. Of never give up is " Japan " a country which has faced nuclear bombings and still face tsunami  and earthquakes  from time to time. But still it bounce back. Your life is in your hand you are its director, give it an ending  you like. Just have courage and stand up to the problems. One thing you need is " never give up".

TAMIL COMMUNITY AND CASTE

CASTE

Why caste? Who formed caste system? What for it is? For whom does it benefit? Who were all affected?

There arises an uncountable number of questions when we start a conversation on caste. As there is no origin or an individual discoverer of caste, making it even more complex. It just evolved and attained various forms in the society, in general, it is  time variant in nature. Each defines himself as a top caste and compares it only with a caste/ community lower than his/hers. It doesn't mean like only privileged communities, boost themselves rather, people used it as a upgrading tool wherever required. Like, if they are benefitted by showing up their caste, they would outbreak it via asking their native land.

Natives of the State 

 As in Tamil Nadu, to say in real each district has its own dominated community. Coimbatore- Gounder, Vanniyar; Thirunelveli - Nadar; Ramanathapuram - Mukkulathor; Madurai- Thevar and so on. These information almost are known to every tamilian who has an idea and impact of community in their life, in fact they can't even sustain in society without knowing these.

Politics

This might sound pretty unethical to outsiders who are unaware of the candidates of each dominant party selecting their elective members for a particular ward/ district. Keenly observing, each party will hold a diversity in its selection of leading members. But actually people are fine with it, Tamil Nadu is the only state in India, which has been ruled by state-level parties either single-handedly or in alliance with the national parties. Majority parties are only DMK and AIADMK, other parties could neither match the outstanding competition between them nor sustain in the battle.

Unity in Diversity

Behind all the scenes, when it comes to tamil culture and language, they are all one in a hand. The ideology of language and heritage seems to be same for all tamilians. Being the longest surving language in the world, it outstandes in its poetry and literature which is most experienced when written in its true style "Pure Tamil".Tamilians value heritage and tradition and stand united when issues arise especially on jalli kattu protest, NEET exam and many others.

Can we imagine living without community?

It is quiet difficult and unimaginable when it comes to a state comprising 100+ communities in it. Many reformers had tried to throw off community and articulated to live unison as Tamilians. The surnames of keeping their community names behind the names are widely wiped off from the state. This is still an identity in most other states in India like Kerala, Andhra and other northern states. This surname idea is held out of the state only by the refinement in ideologies of people by Periyar, Anna and Babasaheb.

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
