Intelligent Quotient or IQ is a number used to express a person's mental ability that consists of problem-solving skills, memory, knowledge of the world, and visual processing. People with high IQs manage to get high-paying jobs as they beat the average Joe in any academic skill test. But, what if, someone with a high IQ has problems managing their emotions and ends up abusing someone at work. No one wants to work with a toxic person no matter how intelligent that person might be. This is where the Emotional Quotient comes into play. Yes, a high IQ can get you a high-paying job, but you can lose your job if you don't have high EQ. Emotional Quotient refers to a person's ability to perceive, control, evaluate, and express emotions. People with high EQ are good at working in teams, making friends, understanding others, and expressing themselves. They are more open-minded, less judgemental, empathetic, and often liked by most of their colleagues at work. They put themselves in


  In our country India, a person’s worth is determined by the ranks and marks he gets in an exam. This is the bitter truth. But is it really fair to judge a person based on the marks in some random exam? Parents force their kids to study harder to get into those fancy colleges like IITs, nits, aims etc. But they don’t understand that only some people can get good grades while others get average marks. Some may even fail the exam. Failure is a part of life. Parents should understand that they should prepare their children for failure. They should tell them that it is ok to fail.  Life is not always about winning. It’s more about experiencing failures and learning lessons from it. Exams are just a small part of life. If you don’t become an engineer or doctor, it doesn’t mean the end of the world. You can pursue other careers. There are so many opportunities out there, but Indian parents want only IITs and AIIMS for their children. Indian students are one of the most depressed in the worl


  BOOK REVIEW: 4.5 out of 5 STARS. This book goes into detail about the inner workings of the human brain to explain how habits are formed. It focuses on habit formations at various levels such as individual level, organizational level, and society level. It talks about famous organizations like Starbucks, Pepsodent, and Alcoa while explaining how their leaders drove their companies towards success by sticking to certain habits. The author talks about something called keystone habits which trigger many other habits. The author mentions the vital link between habit formation and the basal ganglia, an interior part of the brain. He talks about the craving brain, the golden rule of habit change, the power of a crisis, the Saddleback church, and the Montgomery bus boycott. The writing is simple and easy to understand. The personal stories of the characters and their achievements were inspiring to read. It's clear from the book that the author has done enough research in presenting the

Serial Killers: They Live to Kill by Rodney Castleden

  BOOK REVIEW: 3 stars out of 5. If you are new to true crime fiction and love reading about serial killers, then you will find this book interesting. Serial killers are the most violent and dangerous killers in human existence because they do not feel any empathy or remorse like normal human beings. They keep on killing until they are caught. They are also good at pretending to have normal lives while killing people constantly without any guilt. The author has categorized serial killers into various groups and covered different timelines. From ancient Kings to modern serial killers like Ted Bundy, the menacing list of serial killers gives us an idea about how serial killers operate and choose their victims. But the author has concentrated only on European and American serial killers. There is no mention of any modern serial killers from India and Latin American countries. Notorious persons like Saddam Hussein and Joseph Stalin are also included in the list of serial killers since they


  GENDER SEGREGATION:  Today, I am going to discuss gender segregation in our country. Of course, gender segregation happens in many conservative countries, but I will focus on India. Gender segregation or gender separation is the physical, legal, or cultural separation of people according to their biological sex. In schools and colleges across India, teachers separate the girls and boys into the “girls’ row” and the “boys’ row”. Many educational institutions in India separate girls and boys from each other within the same class so that female students won’t mix with male students. Boys and girls not only sit apart but barely talk to each other. There are girls-only schools and boys-only schools too. Have you ever given a thought about the consequences of separating girls and boys at such a young age?  Boys begin to assume girls are bad influences and girls would assume the same. “Don’t talk to girls,” says the conservative mother who assumes that her son would be spoiled by the girls
