If not perfect then atleast puts you on your way to perfection.
Since early ages, men has always worked hard to stride forward. Being at the top of ecological cycles, men has always wanted to dominate things. Competition not only prepares you for a certain test but also adds value to your overall perspective. A normal level test may fetch you some marks but a national level competition or Olympiad gives you experience and provides you with utter confidence which makes you a different person altogether. A student should always look for new opportunities and should work hard to achieve their dreams. Hence participating in Olympiads and national level competition is recommended because:
1. The exposure the new learning: by competing in such exams, students gain additional knowledge. They learn nee ways to answer the questions in new smart and short way. The exam pressure makes students sharp minded hence allowing them to tackle questions with undisputed skills.
2. Understanding of concepts and their application: participation in such exams makes students mind broad and more receptive towards new ideas. Students not only learn new concepts but also learn how to apply them
3. Self-analysis: through such exams, students get to analyse themselves at the local, national and international level and hence allowing them to excel.
4. Awards and Recognition: Awards boost student’s morale. Winning boosts up the confidence of students.
5. Moral and psychological benefits: such exams put the student's skills to the test. They allow you to go on after a loss and work even harder after a win. Hence making a student’s personality neutral.
Winning in such exams is not guaranteed but very few institutes provide you skill development with new knowledge.

The infinite space has bewildered humans from long gone centuries. Everyone has at one point of time in their whole life of going to space for once or just place your feet on the surface of the moon. For many, this may just a dream or a figment of their imagination. But some people work hard and do every bit to put their dream on the mechanism of reality. Rakesh Sharma is a name not unknown to any citizen of India because he is the first Indian citizen to travel into space.
Rakesh Sharma was Born on 13 January 1949 in Punjab. Having an acute interest in the army, he joined Air Force as a cadet in 1966 at the age of 18. Proving his mettle and through his extreme hard work and dedication, he was commissioned into the Indian Air Force in 1970 to become a pilot. In 1984 he became the first Indian citizen to enter into space when he flew aboard the Soviet rocket Soyuz T-11. Rakesh Sharma spent 7 days 21 hours and 40 minutes aboard while conducting various experimental sessions. Upon his arrival, he was conferred with the honour of “Hero of the Soviet Union”. He was also conferred with “Ashok Chakra” by the Indian government.
Tarannah-e-hind or saare jahan se achcha hindustan humara was penned by the talented poet Muhammed Iqbal in 1904. The poem which guarantees goosebumps is warmly accepted by everyone. The lyrics of the song were earlier just mere words but these words were externalised by the words of Rakesh Sharma. When the former prime minister of India late. Indira Gandhi asked Sharma through an official television news conference that how does India look from space, Rakesh Sharma proudly answered “ Saare jahan se achchha hindustan humara”. He mainly worked in the field of biomedicine and remote sensing.
Sharma’s sheer hard work and dedication made him what he is today. The reputation respect and appreciation which he garnered was a result of his determination and focus. Rakesh Sharma truly made every Indian proud by achieving such feat. Due to this his name is externalised and will be remembered by every generation with loads of respect. Hats off sir.
Raising children is no child’s play
The feeling of raising the next generation may be full of burden and responsibility, but the issues which parents have to face makes this progress nerve wrecking. The job is not easy, to sum up. Children are always characterised by a bundle of mischief and trouble. Working on them sometimes seems so troublesome. They are generally very curious with unharnessed energy. Many parents complain of their child having concentration problems. They easily get bored from things and then shift to other things hence making it difficult for parents to stabilise them. Hence here are few tips to help you increase your child's concentration
1. Playing helps: children learn more by playing. Not with gadgets but my normal regular toys. The games should include those which develops their thinking, skills and knowledge.
2. Make a comfortable environment: a soothing and comfortable environment allows your child to be themselves hence building their personality. The ambience should not be loud rather soft and soothing.
3. Healthy eating habits: food rich in proteins such as eggs, almonds have the ability to raise awareness and concentration level. Eating junk food or sugar rich food harms child’s development.
4. Adapting a set routine: A child needs an overall growth hence time should be devoted to each sphere of growth. Strong discipline and routeing should be imposed to utilise time fully and efficiently.
5.Sleeping and mid breaks: mid breaks and rest are known to boost concentration. Bathroom breaks, hunger pangs should be controlled before as they then interfere with the study.
6. Divide work in small bits: a pile of incomplete work looks like a mountain but dividing them into small bits help them to concentrate well as they get the confidence to do them.
7. Understanding their methodology: every child has different needs. Some learn better by audio, some by visuals. Hence one should analyse their methodology which matches their concentration level.
8. Reward system: everyone hopes for a reward in lieu of their hard work and efforts. Children expect appreciation and praises. Hence they should be regularly appreciated which makes them more dedicated towards their work and concentrate well.
With a generation that is earmarked with upcoming future professions like becoming a doctor or an engineer. With the country so obsessed with these professions, pursuing a career in space science still seem off the thoughts. With the advent of technology and lifestyle, myriad alternatives have now found significance. A career in space science is a great option as it provides a budding and esteemed career. If new discoveries about planets and extraterrestrial life fascinate you then a career in space science is surely suited for you.
Space technology is a broad term which itself includes astronomy, and astrophysics, planetary atmosphere and aeronomy, earth science and study of the solar system. With the boom in the knowledge about space, space science has further been categorised in cosmology, stellar science, planetary science, astronomy and astrology. In order to pursue a career in space science, one should have strong and thorough command over physics, chemistry and mathematics. Graduate courses could also be taken in the favoured stream of relevant disciplines like space technology which is offered by ISRO or other 4-year B.Tech course or 3-year B.Sc course. Upon obtaining a graduate degree, one can then opt for a postgraduate degree in space science related fields. If you have a knack in a certain subject, then one can also opt for a PhD in it.
Space science has a lot to offer. Depending upon one’s qualifications one can explore job option in ISRO, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), Hindustan Aeronautical Laboratories (HAL), and National Aeronautical Laboratories (NAL). One can also be absorbed as faculty in universities or committees and can publish papers, guides for publication. Astronomers and astrophysicist can also be absorbed by government/national observatories, space research agencies, science museum and planetarium. Some other employment includes employment in simulation centres, space centre operators, military operations etc. It also offers a great remuneration for budding scientists, where an individual can earn up to ₹2.5 lac per annum.
Space has enchanted various scholars and every citizen alike. Space had over the time created much curiosity with many of its observers left puzzled. The huge sphere called as space has much which is not yet deciphered. Space has a lot to be answered about which is surely gonna spell bound its observers in future years. The mystic spheres, the unanswered phenomenon will create more questions whose answers are yet to be found. Although no one can guarantee you the complete information about space, today you can get to know a few facts about your enchanter. Read on some amazing facts about space and remain ever curious.
1. There are thousands of other planets waiting to be discovered. : apart from eight planets in our solar system, we have 1800 confirmed new world and 3000 other to be officially confirmed.
2. Your skin of feet peels off in space: in the microgravity environment, astronauts do not use their feet to walk, hence the skin of the feet starts to soften and flake off. Astronauts even need to take off their socks carefully or hence skin flakes may float in the environment.
3. On Venus a day is longer than its year: Venus completes its one revolution in around 224.7 earth days whereas it just rotates on its axis in 243 earth days. Hence making its day longer than its year.
4. The astronauts were placed in a quarantine after returning from the moon: astronauts of Apollo 13 i.e Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin upon their arrival fro the mission to the moon were isolated in a quarantine machine to check if they haven't brought any deadly disease with them.
5. Approximately one million earth can fit inside the sun: since the sun makes up to 99.8% of the total solar system hence one million earth can fit into the sun
6. You experience increased height in the solar system: in the microgravity environment and absence of gravitational push, your spine straightens up and hence your height could increase up to 5cm.
7. Space is not that much far away: space begins from a universal marker of Karman line which is just 100 km from earth’s surface.
8. You can cry in space but your tears won't fall off: due to the absence of gravity our tear drops rather float.
