Many of us might be familiar with a story of a young girl who under performed in her LSATs and was pushed to take up the job of door to door sales of fax machines; later emerged as one of the most popular women entrepreneurs owning a hosiery company with a revenue worth billions. What makes the Spanx founder Sara Blakely's success story attractive is the backstory of successive failures.
The majority of us somehow fail to relate to success stories of people born with silver spoons. A blend of poor economic status, tormented childhood and hardships in college and a struggle filled initial few years of work is what toils the best for the rise of a heroic figure. The lack of a college degree provides an added essence to the backstory.
Blakely's success story is no different. Failed at stand-up comedy because she wasn't funny enough, failed twice in LSATs but discovered her aha moment when she accidentally created something, a discovery that the women all over raved about. She cut the feet out of her pantyhose and created a rescue garment for the women, she later introduced her shape wear line which boomed making her the youngest self-made women billionaire.
A mother of four, a woman who loves fries and is afraid to fly, there is something that is unusually attractive about Blakely. I believe its her laugh. In most of her photographs she is wearing a scarlet red lipstick and laughing- blissful, bubbly, bright and unrestrained: radiating a sense of fearlessness.

One of my friends suggested trying out the newly opened restaurant near college. It was a Saturday afternoon and was the last day of college of the week, so I thought why not! After making myself comfortable in the green leather couch I took the menu card in my hand and started scanning it and my eyes caught hold of Prawns roast masala curry. And chemeen (which is the Malayalam word for prawns) being my favourite was given the first preference while I began placing the order to the waiter.
The last time I ate prawns was 7 months back when I visited my dads place in Cochin. So I was eagerly waiting for the arrival of food, or should I say prawns curry? I kept looking at the waiters who were passing besides my table; each time a waiter passed I hoped he was the guy who is bringing me my prawns curry. I was beginning to lose patience, so I took my phone and began playing Templerun, my favourite game. I soon got engrossed in the game and reached the last level. The strong aroma of mint leaves hit my nose and as I slowly lifted my head I saw a waiter standing beside my table with a plate of neatly marinated prawns curry. I threw my phone away and took a spoon of the curry and put it in my mouth.
It was a spice fest in my mouth but the flavours were so good that it leaves you wanting more despite the fireworks. I mixed the thick gravy with the plain boiled rice and the taste-exquisite! The next thing I remember was licking my fingers after the meal; after all it was a perfect southern coastal seafood cuisine. When I realised what I was doing, I turned towards my friends and other people in the restaurant, embarrassed and conscious and was relieved on seeing that none of them noticed me as most of them were engrossed in eating the food and didnt really care about the eating gestures of the other person. I suddenly missed home.

As the GST countdown begins in India, here is a quickie for the novice readers.
GST stands for Goods and Services Tax Laws and will be implemented from the 1st of July.
The primary aim of GST is to streamline the uneven tax regime of the country. Although when we look at the larger picture, the GST aims at growing the economy of the country by increasing its business game in the global by evicting the indirect interstate tax barriers. Here is a quick overview of the differences between the new tax system and the existing one.
Intrastate Sales- CGST + SGSTVAT + Central Excise/Service tax - Income will be shared between the Centre and the State
Interstate Sales- IGSTCentral Sales Tax + Excise/Service Tax- Single tax from the Centre.
Where CGST is the central government regulated tax
SGST is the state government regulated tax
IGST is the central government regulated tax on interstate sales
When we hear refugees the most striking correlation

When we hear refugees the most striking correlation we make is with the people displaced in the Syrian civil war or the image of the dead body of the young Syrian boy on the beach shore that went viral on the internet.
The refugee crisis is a never ending yet very challenging one that needs global attention. There is no intricate or well established system made to solve this problem. The displacement of people from their native country to a foreign land is not just financially binding but emotionally exhausting. And a very interesting aspect of this crisis is its widespread presence-from Sudan, Istanbul to Europe the refugee crisis and migration issues is very common.
The main problem here is the ignorant behaviour and cold response of developed countries towards this alarming situation. The problems with migration are many. Infiltration is an issue that most local governments fail to address. There are various examples which prove that many young children adopt dangerous measures to get an entry into a country. Most of these examples are infiltration cases into America. With all the pompous stories that people hear about America, young children try to get into the country through illegal ways often putting lives to danger.
Talking about the refugees who seek help in foreign countries, resettlement is a major problem. The refugee camps are often unsafe and lack basic facilities so the life in the camp is very miserable. Often medical aid is not provided on time and this could cause health issues to the individuals.
The number of deaths during border crossing is significantly high and this is definitely an alarming situation. On one hand we have people fleeing persecution in Myanmar who suffered for weeks on board boats while the neighbouring countries were debating on who should be extending help on the other hand we have trafficking happening in the border. These are serious issues that need to be looked into and treated as an important matter of concern.
As we all know that the World Refugee Day is nearing, the need of the hour is to spread the word across and address this concern by standing together in solidarity with the displaced people. It's our responsibility to urge the governments of our countries to look into this matter and find homes for these deserted people.
We can broadly classify the revival of metaphysical poems,
especially Donne's works, into the following seven:
1. The 1st stage of metaphysical revival (1870s)
We can broadly classify the revival of metaphysical poems, especially Donne's works, into the following seven:
Alexander Grossarts edition of John Donnes poems- 1872
Grossarts edition on poems of George Herbert, Crashaw, Marvell and Cowley- 1870-1880
Edmund Gosses biography of Donne-1899
During the late 19th century metaphysical poets such as Francis Thompson and other American critics observed the sudden interest among poets in writing about Donne.
2. In the 19th century
Donnes poetry and personality was widely studied.
From the mass of Donnes criticism there emerged three closely related concepts of man- Donne the rebel, Donne the mystery and Donne the unique individual
3. Conceptions of thought & feeling, psychological realism and modernity of metaphysical poets were merged (late 19th and early 20th centuries)
The idea was largely discussed in T.S Eliots essays on The metaphysical poets, Andrew Marvel and John Donne.
The critics argued that intellectual devices could play a significant role in the expression of sincere personal feeling.
Grossart was one of the first critics to stress the quick transitions between thought and feeling in the work of the metaphysics.
Also American critics like Lowell, Schelling and Edward Bliss Reed began thinking in the same manner and spoke about Donnes contribution to the development of intellectualised emotion.
4. Emphasis on psychological realism, their fidelity to psychological process and to the flux and flow of complex experience
A significant contribution to this idea was made by T.S Eliot.
The psychological realism was later accompanied by an increased sympathy for a mixture of wit and seriousness.
5. By the 1st decade of 20th century the concept that complexity, obscurity and harshness prevented sincere personal expression was reversed as they seemed to be qualities that reflected fidelity to the truth of experience.
6. The poets of early 20th century insisted that they were modern
It was the tendency to compare 17th century and modern poetry initiated by Keats, Herbert, Shelley, Crashaw and John Keble.
A significant climax contribution was made by Eliot.
7. The members of Gregorian poet critics including Brooke and Walter De la Mara began Comparing Donne with contemporary poets. Comparisons were made between Donne & Brook and Donne & Shakespeare.
