#Ishmeet&Bansaricreations_”ANIMAL CRUELTY”

The purpose of this blog is to present a convincing argument against the practice of animal cruelty.

Most of the animals found on the street are abandoned by their house owners, the bulk of those animals are either cats or dogs. With reference to abandoned dogs, those animals who are not managed, end up reproducing breeding puppies that are not desired and so are assaulted through the neglect and are left alone to suffer within the cruel world of roads.

The tough conditions that street animals go through are major issues in animal welfare these days. Nearly seventy fifth of five hundred million dogs are out on the road. The injuries suffered from fending for food are rarely treated. Tumors, infection of skin and open wounds are usually found on the road animals that go untreated and cause nice suffering for the bruised and unattained animals.

Preventing animal cruelty is in all of our best interests. Studies have shown that cruelty to animals is a sign that other abuse is taking place in the home. Those same studies show that children who witness animal abuse are at a greater risk of becoming animal abusers themselves.

Preventing animal cruelty is no easy task, but together we can make great strides. You can contribute by:





Grade X – A journey similar to a game.

Estimated 20 lakh students enter grade X every year (correct me if I am wrong); I was one of them last year.

Frankly speaking, for me, the year’s journey was similar to that of the boy in the game – HILL CLIMB RACING.  This game I just mentioned is a racing game, you have to drive in various terrains, sometimes on slopes and other times on narrow bridges. When accelerating too much you run out of fuel and when you drive well you get diamonds and extra fuel ……. And the year was similar with this game, How? – I started with full energy, gone through good times when hard work pays off and hard times when things when opposite to what I imagined and I didn’t know what to do.

You get extra fuel when you stay consistent, that is your parents and teachers are on your side and they believe in you more than you do in yourself. And lastly the diamonds –  friends who help you sail off smoothly, the trips,  movie treats, birthday parties and the free periods, these things gave me good memories which I’ll keep safe in my heart along with the moments which made me feel devasted.

The final exams ended the day before yesterday and now for the coming month or two, I’ll be restless and a little scared about the results. Knowing the fact that results don’t matter and I won’t be much affected by it too …. Still there resides some voidness in me until I see my final results. Hoping for the best, I’ll move on to the following tasks that spread out for me and continue working hard as usual.

Prompt #12 March 2023

Where would you go on a shopping spree?

I would like to go to Centre Market, Lajpat Nagar, Delhi. This market has all the stuff which one wants, from clothing to home decor and electronics and everything else. It is said that half of the population of Delhi gets their clothes and accessories from there only because of a special reason, the market has all the goods at cheap rates and most of the things are ‘first-copy’ of the famous brands. Last year I even visited there and I got a couple of bedsheets and a pair of shoes. I Just loved the vibe there. Food Stalls there are very famous too, especially Ram Ladoo…. I just can’t wait to visit there again.

Elevator Speech💡

I will begin this post with a very interesting story, Back in 1983, John Sculley was the president of Pepsi. Sculley had dedicated his career to Pepsi and was widely believed to be a serious contender to become PepsiCo’s chairman one day. As a result, Sculley constantly turned down offers from corporate headhunters, trying to lure him away to run other companies. One day, he received a call from the top headhunter in New York, telling him Apple Computers was looking for a CEO. Although Sculley was intrigued by Apple’s rise to become a Fortune 500 company in only six years, he said he wasn’t interested. The headhunter urged him to just meet with Jobs, so he agreed to meet Jobs while there, when he met Jobs, Sculley was shocked by Apple’s headquarters, completely unimpressive. Jobs told Sculley that Apple was going to be the most important computer company in the world, and Sculley was impressed with him. Jobs was fascinated by Pepsi’s marketing. But at the end of the meeting, Sculley reiterated that he wasn’t interested in leaving Pepsi. A few weeks later, Jobs flew to New York and dropped in on the Pepsi president. Sculley still resisted the offer. While intrigued and flattered, Sculley kept declining the job offer. Sculley still refused. So Jobs flew up to New York again and asked Sculley to reconsider one last time. Sculley said thank you, but no thank you. He had invested too many years in Pepsi, and he had a future there. That’s when Jobs looked Sculley in the eyes and said, “Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?”

That challenge hit Sculley like a fist in the stomach. After all the meetings, the huge salary offer and the stock options, it was that one sentence that haunted him. It gnawed at Sculley. It wouldn’t let him sleep. It was so powerful, that it finally convinced him to leave Pepsi behind and join Apple.

That question from Steve Jobs is considered one of the best ELEVATOR SPEECHES in history.

So, there is a thing called an ELEVATOR SPEECH. It is a pitch that is brief and powerful enough to change a person’s mind during a short, one-minute ride. In other words, sometimes it doesn’t take long at all to change a person’s mind. One minute is all it takes. Often what changes a person’s mind is not eloquent words……but the desperation in other persons’ eyes or sympathy for that person. But nothing can change a person’s mind more easily than when you tell the truth despite everything. So, have the guts to hear and accept the truth. Most Importantly is to SPEAK LESS AND HEAR & OBSERVE MORE

Food Wastage: The world’s dumbest problem

When we are told to think about the stuff that’s hurting our planet, what things come to our mind first? Things like smokestacks, cars, oil spills, deforestation. But one thing that skips our mind, is all the food we throw away. In India, food wastage generated is 50 Kg per capita per year which equals 68,760,163 tonnes per year ( Acc. to Food waste Index Report 2021, from UNEP ).

Essay On Food Waste For Students & Children In Simple English - Wide Academy

All of this wasted food is a huge contributor to climate change. If global food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, just behind China and United States. So one can come to the conclusion that it is an enormous problem. However, it is one of the easiest ways to address climate change.

It takes a ton of resources to produce food. On top of that, it takes a lot of effort to store and transport it and when food decomposes, it isn’t just stinky but it releases a lot of methane {a greenhouse gas }. We’re trashing our planet to grow food that no one eats. Actually, no one likes wasting food, it’s just something that we haven’t been paying much attention to. Of all of the challenging problems out there, reducing the amount of food is one of the easiest.

Well, to understand the reasons behind the food waste, we need not be an expert, one of the reasons is that we don’t really think while buying, we never question ourselves that ” Do I really need that?” and another part of the reason is that we overbuy as we have tons of space to store it in. By the way, we love and are comfortable in empty spaces in our houses but we are uncomfortable when we see our refrigerators empty. And the last reason, which is quite relatable is that when we have a big plate we tend to put more food, whether or not we can eat it all.

So it turns out that the ways to prevent food wastage are simple and small, like, changing the size of the plate according to our limit of having food and changing our behavior and attitude while buying food, can have a profound impact on nature. And it doesn’t take much effort, because the effects are so less on us.

None of us is perfect. Wasting less food isn’t going to happen overnight but we can always try. And if we do have extra food, then let’s at least try to get it to people who could use it. I would like to end my last post of the year 2021 with a small request to all the readers that let’s be more careful about our actions as the aftermath is super dangerous for mother earth and for us also. Our small steps can help prevent the current climate situation getting worsen.

Child Labor

In simple words, child labor refers to work that is mentally, physically and morally dangerous to children. It interferes with their schooling; they get deprived from the opportunity to attend school. Children engaged in child labor are cheated off of a happy childhood as well as the fun, learning experiences in their years. A majority of them leave behind the path of education, and is compromised on becoming a literate individual.

When it comes to the reality of child labor in India, there’s a sharp contrast between what the laws really mean and what the ground reality is, India is one of the highest concentrations of child labors in the world.

If I talk about the causes (which are pretty clear to all of us) like Poverty, Lack of access to education, disease or disability and cheap labor.

Child labor is not just forcing kids to do things which are harmful them, like making them work in factories, mines or force them to beg. Reality shows are also a kind of child labor, probably disguised.

Reality shows are enrolling kids as participants, and such shows not only destroy the kids emotionally & physically but also take away their innocence from an early age, kids are made to face such harsh lights and they even have to apply a lot of cosmetics, which are not good for their tender skins.  Employment of child actors was common in television channels, but the number has rose in the last decade or so. Their might be a reason for this, so after reading out many articles and reports. I have actually come out to conclusion that there are mainly to two reasons and one of them is the “raining money” Kids are given cash prizes upon winning the show and their sponsors these days are giving more prizes and cash awards, to be more popular and well known. The other reason is the so called “Extra- curricular activities” supporters claim that participation in reality shows are an extension of the extra-curricular activities enforced in schools, over the years. Students are pressured into participation and most of the times, it ends up damaging their academic careers.

To wrap all of it, I would like to say child labor directly or indirectly is not good for children, every child ought to have a respectable education and he/she should not have deprived of it, no matter what the reason behind the child working at a tender age.

I hope that my message was clearly delivered to all my readers, this post is a bit wordy as I wanted to cover up all the points, if anywhere I have made mistake or wrote down something inappropriate, do comment below and help me improve myself.

Thank You : )   

PLASTIC : A Precaution or A Problem.

Plastic, a versatile, affordable and ever-present thing. It makes our work easier and gives us a lot of

conveniences. They have formed an essential part of our lives now. We use them almost every day for various purposes. And now in this current scenario the use of plastic is more than it was expected because plastics have been essential to keep the hospitals running and protecting our frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is most necessary element in the production of the medical equipment and protective gears used by us and mostly by the frontline workers.

Many big companies are coming up to help our frontline worker, For instance, the luxury auto brand Ferrari,  announced that it will produce the thermoplastic components needed for respiratory valves, while Apple designed plastic face shields for medical professionals and is shipping millions of them.

As we can see that, the demand of plastic products such as masks, gloves, gowns and disposable bags increases, one thing is clear: Plastic is going to be very big problem for all of us, especially in this pandemic and we are quite familiar with the actions which is going to cause this.

Here are some lesser known facts, which is probably going to force all of to rethink about our lifestyle and attitude regarding plastic and the pollution it is causing : –

  • Since the 1950s, around 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide.
  • In some parts of the world, using plastic is already illegal.
  • 73% of beach litter worldwide is plastic.
  • A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute.
  • Worldwide, about 2 million plastic bags are used every minute.
  • 90% of plastic polluting our oceans is carried by just 10 rivers.
  • Plastic is killing more than 1.1 million seabirds and animals every year.
  • The average person eats 70,000 microplastics each year.
  • The average time that a plastic bag is used for is … 12 minutes.
  • Over the past 50 years, world plastic production has doubled.

We all stand on a road with wo diverging paths. The first one is where we need to stop or reduce the use

of plastics or else the future in which there is more plastic in the ocean than fish is very near. The other is a sustainable model of living and working that will benefit us long into the future – this one will create a healthier, more equitable and more livable future for all of us.

E – Waste : A critical issue but a relief in Covid-19

In Simple language, E-waste is when an electronic device which not in use is thrown in an inappropriate way. E-waste has always been a serious issue as it is not overlooked and the devices are inappropriately disposed. The United Nations has described it as the world’s fastest-growing waste stream. Every year, humanity generates tons of electronic waste, or know as tsunami of toxic garbage.

In India, Electronic waste is emerging as a serious public health and environmental issue . Our Country is the “fifth largest electronic waste producer in the world”; approximately 2 million tons of e-waste are generated annually and an undisclosed amount of e-waste is imported from other countries around the world.

See the source image

E-waste is not hazardous if it is stocked in safe storage or recycled by scientific methods. The e-waste can, however, be considered hazardous if recycled by primitive methods. E-waste contains several substances such as heavy metals, plastics, glass etc., which can be potentially toxic and hazardous to the environment and human health, if not handled in an environmentally sound manner. E-waste recycling in the non-formal sector by primitive methods can damage the environment.

Now, a new analysis has found that the world’s e-waste junkyards will be getting a slight reprieve due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As with other seemingly positive environmental side effects of the coronavirus, this one nothing to celebrate.🎉🎊

In 2019, the global population created 53.6 million tons of e-waste but in 2020, despite an increase in sales of devices like laptops and tablets for home working, learning and demand for entertainment during isolation and quarantine, the sale of electronic equipment worldwide decreased compared with sales estimates based on previous years. Which will directly or indirectly affect in decrease of E-waste generation.

However, the pandemic has given a dip in E-waste, which may give nations a little bit of breathing space and time to strengthen their recycling infrastructure, but if not paid attention it will be again a major issue for the human health and increase in climate change.

#Book Review 3 _ Ahimsa By Supriya Kelkar

The book Ahimsa is taking place in 1942 and  is about a ten-year-old Anjali whose mother  has just quit her job working under the British  Raj for undisclosed reasons and a rising  Independence movement is about to take her  entire life !! The book opens up with a black Q  which states Quit, is painted on the side of  her mother’s ex-boss’s wall.

Anjali gets unwillingly involved in the turmoil.  She has to give up her biases against the Dalit  community or the so-called untouchables and has to  sacrifice her lovely foreign-made ghagra-choli  for khadi clothes 😦

It takes one into the journey of ahimsa—a  practice of nonviolence towards all living  things. The point of view of the author is to share the stories of the unsung heroes of  India’s Wars of Independence and the book is inspired by  the author’s great-grandmother’s experience working  with Gandhi Ji.

I would surely recommend this book because of the simple language and an exciting story. You will get a chance to see India’s independence through the eyes of the young,  ten-year-old child.


Body Shaming: The size of the person does not determine how the person is !!

Society doesn’t just find humor in degrading a woman’s body; they also find humor in degrading a man’s body. Body shaming has become a problem for both genders. People take their own insecurities and aim them at other people to make themselves feel better about their own body. . Body shaming is causing teens nowadays to be more insecure.

People, with pure intentions of insulting someone, constantly throw comments in public places like – “her body is so flat,” and “He’s fat, that makes him so ugly,” and “you need to lose weight.” Nobody chooses the body they have. Everyone is born into that body without a choice. If someone is healthy then it should not matter what they look like to anyone but their own.

We should not be body shaming rather we should be motivating, supporting, and encouraging each other. Until everyone realizes that, body shaming will continue to be an issue. Body shaming is an issue that will not be solved unless everyone learns how to accept their own body.
