Will India and Pakistan Fight in New Year 2017

Ever since India carried out its surgical strikes across POK (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) in the late September this year, the speculation over a possible India-Pakistan War in the upcoming New Year 2017 is gaining momentum. Those advocating for war must realize that it’s not a cricket match – one game and it’s all over – war rages on. It destroys the lives of several men-in-uniform, their families and even innocent citizens as well when the situation goes out of control.

Defense Experts are of the view that a war should only be the last option. Considering the upcoming assembly elections in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP), Modi-led NDA (National Democratic Alliance) government at the centre, with BJP as its ruling coalition partner, can wage a war against Pakistan to strengthen its position in the forthcoming poll. It’s going to be a fatal four-way contest at the UP poll with all major political parties; Congress, BJP, SP and BSP are in the fray.

Possible Reasons Why India-Pakistan War Should Be Avoided

1) Massive loss of human lives on both sides of the border.

2) GDP of both nations will tumbledown due to war. After effects of the war will haunt both nations’ economies for a long time.

3) Possible ill effects of any war would be felt in massive unemployment, inflation, loan burden of international financial institutions and retardation in developmental process.  

4) China’s possible involvement in the war will escalate further tension in the region leaving the fate of the massive chunk of the people into jeopardy.

5) Historically, India and Pakistan have fought against each other for record four times; 1947, 1965, 1971 and 1999, but none of them yielded any viable and concrete solution as yet. War mongering Pakistan had already lost four battles against India; fighting one more war could further impact its already decrepit economy.

Why India-Pakistan Will Fight a War in the New Year

With the year almost coming to an end, there is a growing possibility of war between these two erstwhile nations. Pakistan as a neighbor has always hurt India badly using ‘terrorists’ as its non-state actors. What’s more shocking is the fact that each time India asks Pakistan to act tough on terror; latter invokes Kashmir issue – though these two subjects are asymmetrically different.

Obviously, if Pakistan continues to harm India with deadly terrorism as an element to its foreign policy, how long will India bear the brunt? Most terrorist attacks in India had directly or indirectly Pakistani hands involved in the same. It’s high time our neighbor should divert its attention towards checking in the growing frustration of the Baloch people and other discontented citizens of the country.

Pakistan must fight growing corruption, illiteracy, unemployment, terrorism and communal violence first before it aims to take on India militarily. As of now, the possibility of India-Pakistan war in 2017 is wide open unless Pakistan really undertakes to fight terrorism in reality. But from hindsight, a war between India and Pakistan is almost imminent. However, India and Pakistan should try to solve their disputes first by using dialogues and mutual consultation before taking such a drastic decision as war.

Top 10 Habits To Become Successful This New Year

Everybody seems to be confused at this one. Nobody can say with absolute clarity that which is the shortest route to success. However, there are certain unmissable habits that successful people inculcate in their lives. Well, you can always observe these habits in the daily life of successful people.

However, if you think that by merely imitating a lifestyle of a successful person you can easily kiss success then it’s wrong. Every person has different responsibilities and daily schedule. So, the best way forward is to imbibe these good habits in your life this upcoming New Year – the perfect time to initiate a new year with a goal to accomplish.

Be Organized: Well you have grown up enough to organize your life well. The first step towards doing the same is to wake up early, work entire day long and then go to bed early for sleep.

Read lots of Books: Reading is not a pastime. It acquaints the readers with valuable life lessons to take by and follow in their own lives. This New Year, renovate your book shelf and try to read those books which you haven’t read before.

Look After Health: Success is not all about earning a million bucks. You have to look after your health as well. In pursuit of success you can’t take your health for granted. Also you should take care of your family’s health as well. So, eat healthy and stay fit and fine. Try to include healthy food in your diet.

Donation and Charitable Activities: Success looks best when the same is shared with the people. So, when you nurture a dream to achieve success, try to live up to it by donating and helping the poor and destitute people with whatever way you can.

Pick a Target to Accomplish: “A ship without knowing its destination may get lost even if it has the capacity to travel a long distance” – similarly you can’t be successful in life without having that fire in the belly. Pick a goal for yourself and then try to concentrate on it with hard work and determination.

Be Punctual: For every work you undertake try to complete the same on time. Always remember that successful people always do their task timely. They are punctual and maintain punctuality with whatever they do on a daily basis.

Proper Mindset: Nothing in this world can be achieved without being mentally cautious about what you about to do next. To fulfill your aim, you should have right frame of mind to pursue your dream crossing all odds. Hindrance will be on your path but you have to win over them.

Prioritize Your Stuff: It is important that you should prioritize all your upcoming works this new year according to their urgency. Once you prioritize your stuff then you should proceed towards completing them as per the time frame you decided. For example; anything relating to health should be topping your priority chart.

Keep Learning: One thing that you can do continuously throughout your life is to keep learning newer things. And whatever you learn helps you directly or indirectly to become a better person than what you were yesterday.

Smile a Lot: Successful people exude their level of confidence and charisma from time to time. While doing so they never forget to put that radiant smile on their lips. So, if you also wish to grab success then practice it daily and smile a lot.

Start it right away from this New Year onwards. You will be definitely successful in the near future.

Top 5 Places to Avoid This New Year’s Eve

Every one of us wants to celebrate the New Year’s Eve with full excitement and zeal, but often we take a wrong decision while choosing an appropriate place for New Year celebration. Though you easily search for party spots to enjoy your New Year’s Eve to the fullest, there is hardly any information on places that you should usually avoid on that particular day.

Therefore, I am mentioning here top 5 places and spots that you should always avoid on the New Year’s Eve for a celebration purpose. It is certainly dangerous to celebrate the New Year’s Day with your family at these unusual places.

1) Forests: Adventurous spirits inside us often compel us to do things which we usually don’t try. On New Year’s Eve always listen to your own rational mind before venturing out for any celebration. Even if your heart wishes for a quirky celebration this New Year, just ignore it.

It is very risky to celebrate at forests as you never know when an untoward incident will take place there. Wild animals could pounce on you at the spurt of a moment or even a dangerous insect may sting you. So I strongly advice everyone of you to never think of making a forest as your celebration spot.

2)    Celebration on Boat and Ship: A journey through ship and boat is amazing but not at the time of New Year when there is a change of weather and the overcrowded public. It won’t be a good idea altogether.

It does not just make you feel more uncomfortable with the frequent change of weather and high speed of the vehicle, but also keeps you constantly disturbed. Especially, when you have children with you then don’t dare to celebrate New Year’s Eve on ship and boat – the curiosity of a child and their inquisitiveness often leads to mishaps. So completely avoid ship and boat.

3)    An Abandoned House: Don’t do something excessively different this New Year. Even if an abandoned cottage is available on rent in your vicinity, don’t accept it as your celebratory spot. An abandoned house is often an easy prey for antisocial elements and goons. To stay away from unwanted tension never even think of an abandoned house as a place for a celebration. Also, abandoned houses are often viewed as a safe haven for negative forces such as satan and evil spirits.

4)    Unknown Den: Celebrating important occasions at den has now become a trend. Take any important day of celebration and people throng to decorated dens especially made for those purposes. But I would rather suggest you to pick some other possible places to enjoy your New Year’s Eve and the following week. Frankly speaking, New Year celebration at den is the weirdest idea ever. The problem of lack of oxygen supply and scarcity of light always lead to an accident at these places.

5)    Desert: Even if you are residing in an area that is near a desert, for celebration purposes you mustn’t pick it as your celebratory spot. In deserts, there is not just a scarcity of oxygen supply but extreme heat waves during the day and cold waves at night make it horrible to plan a day out there. People used to get dehydrated at deserts so we must avoid it. Also, shops are located far away from desert hence any celebratory plan at these places is not good.

What Not to Do This New Year

One thing that is just inseparable from New Year is analyzing how you spent the last year and whether it went as per your expectation or not. While a few people may answer in the affirmative but as a matter of fact most people would agree that the last year wasn’t the one he expected it to be. There must have been some mistakes from his side.

Here are some of the things that you must not do this New Year for your betterment. After all, human life is all about striving for perfection and excellence.

1) Overeating and Laziness: Honestly speaking, these are the beginning of making your life more problematic. Overeating is a very bad habit. This practice must be stopped. Laziness is another bad habit that you also forego this year. When people sit idle they eat more, and similarly when people indulge in overeating; this makes them feel heavy and laziness as well. These two are interrelated to each other.

2) Killing Time on Social Media: According to a recent survey, social media has emerged to be the main pastime for youths. This is definitely not a good sign. Staying active on social media for long hour means staying cut off from the society. This does affect our inter-personal skills. What’s more shocking is the fact that it has taken the form of addiction when people never mind spending more than three-four hours on internet.

3) Give up the habit of being late: Be it office or home, Punctuality is a good sign of your focus towards professional and home life. This new year onward give up the habit of reaching your home or office late and try to stay as punctual as possible most of the time.

4) Be sober and calm: You are grown up now, be sensible and try to behave accordingly. This things sound heroic during childhood but not any longer. Learn the art of forgiving and don’t hold grudge against anybody. In case of any misunderstanding you should reach out to that person and discuss freely with him or her.

5) Don’t be spendthrift: Instead of spending money on useless things, try to save it. It is actually a good habit because it helps you from the uncertainties of future. Be practical; you won’t need so many things at once, when you actually need only a handful of things. Remember it always you go to shopping spree next time.

6) Don’t Overburden Yourself With Debt: If you can actually manage your day to day expenditure without taking debt then don’t indulge in such things. By taking debt you will actually part ways with your hard earned money in the form of interest. Rather I suggest you to go for debt for personal loan only when your income is little enough to fulfill your dream of buying a new house or car.

7) Avoid Stress and Tension: Don’t focus on problems, try to focus on the solution instead. Everybody is suffering from one problem or other but that doesn’t mean we should always think about negative things only. Learn the art of stress management and try to stay happy and tension free.

8) Give Farewell to your Addiction Habit: Just stop it this year. You should know that cigarette doesn’t do any good to your health but may actually affect your body severely in the long run. Occasional smoking is okay, but you should avoid it as much as possible.

9) Don’t Watch TV for Long: Watching TV is necessary for entertainment purpose but not at the cost of your 8 hour sleep. Rather I suggest you to watch TV for a couple of hours and don’t fail to complete your 8 hour sleep. This new year keep a limit to it.

10) Don’t avoid Reading and Writing: I know it’s not easy to concentrate on books and novels when you have a plenty of gadgets at your disposal. But try to ensure that you read and write at least with 2 pages daily without any aid from gadgets. These are good habits and can be an enlightening exercise without any fear of getting distracted due to ever-flooded apps that rule the gadgets.
