Capital Punishment for Child rapists? – #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Image by https://soapboxie.com/

Following the barbaric rape cases that have surfaced in recent times, a prodigious public outcry is witnessed across the nation where people are demanding justice for the victims of such heinous crimes.

The most recent of all is the Asifa Bano rape case. An 8-year-old girl in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir was kidnapped, held captive in a temple, raped repeatedly and murdered. This case has triggered a huge public outrage; like the one witnessed in the infernal Nirbhaya case in December 2012 where a girl was fatally gang-raped in a moving bus.

Many such cases have surfaced from time to time that shocks us to our very core. Moreover, such cases compel us to question the efficiency of our current judicial system in curbing such offences and bringing justice to the victims of such heinous crime.

The question that is spreading like wildfire across the nation right now is whether capital punishment (death penalty) is fitting for child rapists or not.

Rape, in general, is considered as one of the most barbaric and inexcusable of offences. The sheer mental, physical and emotional trauma that one goes through cannot even be put in words.

And to inflict all that mentally, physically and emotionally slaughtering trauma on a child is gruesome and appalling. We can’t even begin to imagine the effect it has on an adult, let alone a child.

Due to the recent spine-chilling cases looming over our heads, there is an apparent need to make some amendments in the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act.

In the present scenario, there is a 3-year imprisonment for sexually harassing a child, 5-year imprisonment for sexual assault and 10-years imprisonment for aggravated sexual assault.

Now, there are talks of adoption of capital punishment for people convicted of raping a child below the age of 12.

“I have been deeply, deeply disturbed by the rape case in Kathua and all the recent rape cases that have happened on children. I and the (women and child development) ministry intend to bring an amendment to the POCSO Act asking for death penalty for rape of children below 12 years,” Maneka Gandhi was heard saying in a video, which was uploaded on Twitter.

Many might be against capital punishment thinking that although the anger is justified, the law should not be amended based on a mere public outrage. Moreover, some say that a death penalty will not a serve a deterrent in such cases. That the people willing to commit such crimes will not be afraid to do it just because of the fear of being hanged.

However, in my opinion, the adoption of capital punishment or a death penalty for people convicted of raping a child, is judicious.

Not only will it serve to bring justice to the victim and her family, but will also act as a deterrent, at least on some level. It may even instil the victims and the family members to come out and report the case, as a majority of rape cases go unreported due to the social stigmas attached to it. Moreover, a chemical castration can also serve as a deterrent and inhibit people from getting involved in such crimes.

Be it life imprisonment, chemical castration or capital punishment, such heinous crimes shall not be neglected. The culprits must be penalized duly. Justice should be served in a befitting manner and not in some form of a monetary compensation given to the victim’s family.

Feel free to comment down your thoughts below and contribute in this debate by being an active part of it.

Are you pro-death penalty for child rapists and child sex offenders? Do you think that adopting capital punishment for the crime will act as a deterrent? Do you think it will engrave a fear of death in the minds of future culprits?

Or are you of the opinion that death penalty should be abolished?

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

All of us are aware of the hassles of styling our hair daily. Be it straightening the hair for a party or curling the hair to revamp your style, the struggle of styling the hair is real. Not to mention the harmful effects it has on our hair. The heat from the hair straightener or the curling iron or just a mere hair dryer invariably damage our hair when used day-after-day.

Thus, most women out there suffer from severe hair fall. The split ends and the intense hair fall leads to the deterioration of the hair. Moreover, the scorching heat of the summer season, a large amount of suspended particulate matter in the air present as a pollutant or the contaminated water we unknowingly use to wash our hair, all of it takes a toll on our hair.

So, how do we stop it? We can’t just stop styling our hair and end up looking like a mess. All of us want to look good. All of us desire to be the best possible version of ourselves. Be it a mom of 3 kids who is always running around the house doing chores and taking care of her kids, or a pop celebrity always on the road – touring, all women want to be able to look in the mirror and feel good about the way they look. Not only does looking good instils in us a tremendous amount of confidence, but it also pushes us to go out there in the world and conquer our goals.

Thus, the way we look, the way we dress, ends up being of utmost importance. And as we all know, the way we style our hair decides how we look.

So, how do you look good, enjoy the ease of styling your hair every day without damaging your hair?

5 Fitness Tips from My Daily Routine – #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

The everyday struggles of earning bread for the family has resulted in all of us being callous about our fitness. As a result, most of us are becoming indolent and sluggish. We are befalling to be work-shy and end up procrastinating not only when it comes to sustaining a healthy lifestyle, but also in our day-to-day activities. Moreover, with summers just a short distance away, the sluggishness is on the rise. Thus, there is a need to necessitate the incorporation of fitness into our daily routine.

I, being a workaholic, have often struggled with being drained throughout the day and found myself procrastinating and unable to take care of my health. However, I wanted to change my lifestyle to address this issue. I wanted to be energetic and lively. So, I made some changes in my daily routine AND IT WORKED LIKE A WONDER.

People often don’t realize the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle. Not only does it keep you active, but it also results in you being efficient in whatever it is that you do.

Here are the 5 fitness tips from my daily routine that resulted in a new and rejuvenated me.

  1. Start your day with drinking 2-3 glasses of lukewarm water.

Image by https://www.inlifehealthcare.com

It’s funny how we fail to integrate something as easy as drinking water in our daily routine. I cannot stress the importance of keeping ourselves hydrated enough. Starting your day with drinking 2-3 glasses of lukewarm water will help detoxify your system and give you a much-required jump start. It’s also beneficial for your skin.

You may use INSTACUPPA to help consume more and more water.

INSTACUPPA is a 100% food safe, FDA approved product which helps you infuse water with all the natural fruits, vegetables and herbs that you can think of.

  1. Exercise

Firstly, exercising does not mean going to the gym. You don’t necessarily have to go the gym to work out or burn calories.

Maybe go for a 15-20 minute run every morning or a brisk walk in the evening. As long as you manage to incorporate some form of physical activity in your daily routine, preferably something that increases your heart rate by 50% i.e. some form of cardio, you’ll be good. Lack of physical activity will only make you sluggish.

Secondly, exercising daily will not only keep you physically fit, but will also have a soothing effect on your cognizance.

  1. Count your caloric intake

Image by http://www.koreatimes.co.kr

We need to be aware of the number of calories that we consume daily. Whether you want to shed fat, lose/gain weight or build muscle, you need to know your daily caloric intake and eat accordingly.

I have already written an article on the importance of counting your calories. DO READ my article for to know more everything from calculating your daily caloric intake to using it to lose/gain weight.

  1. Meditate

Image by https://www.wikihow.com

Meditation doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to sit alone with your legs crossed and eyes closed. You can learn to meditate anytime, anywhere. Be it on a bus, or while travelling or during a break, just close your eyes and focus on your breathing for 10 minutes. Try it right now. You will be amazed by how calming/soothing you’ll find it. However, solely focusing on your breathing and not giving in to any other random thought process is not that easy and will take some practice. Remember, it’s not just about being physically fit. Your mental health is just as important.

  1. Stay away from Junk Food

Image taken from https://www.pinterest.com

No amount of exercise will result in you getting closer to your fitness goals as long as you eat junk food. You need to keep away from junk food/food that is full of preservatives and shift towards organic and all-natural homemade food. A balanced diet is essential.

5 Things That Make Me Happy

We, as human beings, have an innate propensity to seek happiness. Our whole life is being guided by an indefinite intention to attain happiness. Blinded by this crippling desire to “be happy”, we often find ourselves to be crawling in the mud in hopes of achieving the lifelong dream, that is to “be happy”. Our definition of happiness seems to be flawed. We tend to seek happiness in materialistic things. Be it the new iPhone X or a new car, the idea of owning a new piece of technology or a shiny new toy appeals to us, and thus, indeed make us happy. However, this happiness is ephemeral. It is short lived. It cannot be sustained forever. Over time, a newer version of an iPhone would launch or a new desire to own another asset would develop, compelling us to get behind it. Such a mindset often leads to disappointment in an individual. One cannot just keep buying new things, right? Not being able to buy/own a thing that you think will make you happy will lead to disappointment.

Thus, we need to define the term “happiness” first. Someone might experience happiness in travelling and exploring different places across the globe, while someone else might find it in writing/reading a book or in music. Whatever the case may be, it won’t be the same for everyone and it certainly won’t be something materialistic.

Since people are so eager to find happiness in frivolous titles or in shiny new things, they often miss out on the areas, that if conquered, may lead to true happiness. Such areas go unnoticed in our prime and haunt us in our dotage.

Here are the 5 things that make me happy.

  1. Travelling

Ever since I was a kid, I have been enamoured by the idea of being able to explore every nook and cranny of the world we live in. Thus, I have always found myself to be keen on travelling around the world and interacting with different individuals living in different places. Not only does travelling bring me immense happiness, but it also brings a certain sense of calm to my demeanour. Moreover, being able to interact with different people has helped me perceive the world through different lenses. I have travelled 5 countries on 3 different continents, namely Dubai, Paris, London, Kiev and Hong Kong, and I hope to never stop travelling. Feel free to check out the article I wrote about my trip to Dubai.

  1. Family & Friends

Parag Iphone 384

I have always been the guy who gave preference to my family and friends over work. Spending time with family is an absolute necessity. I see people drowning themselves in work or being depreciated in the quest for money. What they don’t realize is the importance of friends and family in our lives. My friends and family provide me with the emotional and mental support in times of distress and help me conquer my goals.

Every achievement is accentuated when I’m with my friends and family. I am thankful to have such amazing and caring people in my life.

  1. Blogging

Blogging has been a new-found obsession for me. Being a social media influencer for over 5 years, I always wanted to dive into blogging. From starting my own blog 3 months ago – techandtravellife.wordpress.com, to now having built my own website – techtravelandlife.com, blogging does make me happy. Moreover, I recently bagged my first international campaign for cars.com. Being able to monetize my passion is a pure bliss. To check out my international campaign for cars.com – Click here

  1. Progression

Being a competitive guy, progression is something that I have always fixated on. Setting daily, monthly and yearly goals and then working hard to achieve them, all lead to progress. Thus, for me, to always keep progressing in life is not only a conscious mandatory choice, but it also makes me happy.

  1. Life

One of the most important thing in life is to be grateful for being alive. There is a 400 trillion to 1 ratio for us to be born as a human in this world. However, we just walk around cribbing about our problems and fixating on the things that didn’t go right. I tend to fixate on the fact that I’m alive and healthy. Gratitude towards life itself and this feeling of being alive fills my heart with jubilation.

Learn to Travel – #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

 

05 hitchhiking in Australia

Image by https://tomislavperko.com

 

Be it the innate curiosity of a child, the rebellious nature of a teenager or an adult – eager to escape, all of us have this immense desire to travel and to explore, irrespective of the stage of life we’re at. However, we do not satiate our desires but often inhibit them. A child wanting to travel is turned down by the overprotective parents. A teen’s willingness to explore the world alone is crushed beneath the mountain of expectations and the urgency of accomplishments.

Then comes the helpless adult human being, unable to step out of the monotonous routine that she/he trapped herself/himself in, just to sustain the feasibility and cost of living. At the end of it all, we are left with the regret of not exploring more, of not extracting more out of life, and of not following our passions; eventually settling for less.

Thus, one needs to travel. One needs to learn how to travel.

There are a lot of myths associated with travelling, like it’s not safe out there or that you need to have a lot of money to travel. Well, that’s not necessarily the case. You don’t need to have a lot of money to travel. Just a bit of courage to start. We all talk about how one day we’re going to travel and explore every nook and cranny of the world, but that day never really comes. Not for most of them out there making such claims. Thus, you need to start now.

Talking about the travel expenses, it can be divided into three categories.

  1. Transport
  2. Accommodation
  3. Food and everything else

Your travelling expenses can be minimised if you take note of the following few travelling tips.

  • Hitch Hike – Don’t shy away from asking for a lift. More than often, someone will stop and offer you a ride. Feel free to engage and interact with them and exchange stories.
  • Volunteer for Transport/Accommodation – As you travel, you may come upon many opportunities where you can work interchange for accommodation or a free ride forward.
  • Get a sleeping bag – You may save money by camping by the side of the road and saving money.
  • Start a blog/vlog – With internet on the rise, you may start a blog or a vlog. You can use it to document your journey and share your experiences with the world. You might even make some money.

All these will certainly minimise your travelling expenses and make it more affordable. This is not a lavish way of travelling, but you will be able to tour the world and earn priceless experiences. Who knows, you may even find yourself.

Just have the courage to step out because “to travel, is to live”.

Eager to buy/sell a car? Head onto CARS.COM

“Sponsored Post”

Buying a car is like cashing in on your dreams. All of us dream to own a car that not only gets us from A to B but also satiates our lifelong fantasies of cruising in a superlative automobile. Be it your first car or the 10th, the dopamine rush that you experience whilst buying a new car is euphoric.

We all know that one cannot just keep buying a new car every time she/he wishes to witness the above-mentioned feeling of euphoria again; not unless you’re highly affluent or inherited a great deal of money recently.

So, how do you sustain the state of being in a euphoric trance? How do you relive the rush you felt whilst buying your car?

The answer is simple. You invest in a sturdy, pleasant automobile that you can rely on throughout the years.

More than often, people end up buying cars on a hunch. They just walk into a car dealership and go with their gut. Thus, one often ends up with a sub-standard vehicle with minimal features and double the price. You need to be aware that you will not be able to savor the purchase if it burns a hole in your pocket. Be it in terms of a huge loan (because you bit off way more than you can chew in the heat of the moment) or the continuous depreciating value of your car, you need to make sure that you make a wise purchase and extract the most out of it.

Now you’re probably thinking that the points listed above are valid points but how do I make a wise purchase?

The answer is CARS.COM

Cars.com is like an online Walmart for cars. Just like you walk into an aisle and see a wide variety of products for you to choose from, you can “walk into” this online portal and choose from a wide variety of cars that are listed. All the information is at your disposal at the click of a button.

Cars.com will help you in finding a reliable car, at the best possible price.

Finding a reliable car using CARS.COM

  1. Research – One should always research before making such a substantial purchase. This is where CARS.COM will help you out significantly. All you have to do is log onto CARS.COM and put in the specifications of the type of car that you wish to buy and VOILA!!! Just surf through the results and stumble across your ideal car.
  2. Reviews and videos – The more you know about the car you wish to buy, the better. You can read the reviews written by people who already bought the car and you can watch videos related to the one you are interested in.
  3. Compare – CARS.COM provides a smooth and user-friendly interface when it comes to comparing cars. You can compare up to 4 cars and can easily determine the best possible choice for you.
  4. New or Used – Whether you want to buy a new car or you want to go easy on those staggering finances and opt for a used car, CARS.COM provides you with both the options. You may also trade in your previous car and walk away with a brand new one. No more dealing with multitudes and finding a buyer for your car. No more hassle. Trade in and experience the joy of being the owner of a new Batmobile. Oh wait, I meant to say automobile*.
  5. Sell your car – If you are not looking to buy a new car and you just wish to sell your car at the best possible price, guess what do you have to do? CARS.COM, that is correct. You may sell directly to a dealer using quick offer or you can even sell it yourself and make a tad bit more money by hogging up the “dealers profit”.

Even if you don’t want to do any of the above and are just curious to find the value of your car, you can do that too. Curiosity killed the cat, sure, but in your case, your curiosity may result in you selling your car and ending up with a new one, at the best possible price. Thanks to CARS.COM

5 things I learned from the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

Screenshot (11)

 

With the commencement of week 6 of the Super Blogger Challenge 2018, the stakes keep getting higher and higher and the competition is intense. Everyone is putting the pedal to the metal and aiming to be the first at the finish line. With hundreds of immaculate articles pouring in week after week, the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 has certainly come to life.

Taking part in the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 has not only proved to be a learning curve in my otherwise straight line graph but has also revealed a lot of insights which may have gone unnoticed if it wasn’t for this competition.

Here are the 5 things that I learned from the Super Blogger Challenge 2018.

  1. Importance of community

Being born and raised in this capitalist dog-eat-dog world, almost all of us are selfish in our ways and seldom do we put others above us.

However, Super Blogger Challenge has taught me the significance of a community and the joys that come with it.

The Super Blogger Community is a well-knit online blogging community with individuals from diverse backgrounds coming together and encouraging each other to do well. Every active member of this community is keen on interacting with others, be it through the comments or by giving shout-outs. The Super Blogger Challenge has done a breath-taking job in bringing together such passionate individuals and forming a group that represents the online blogging community in India and across the globe.

A few of the fellow online blogging “comrades” that I had the pleasure of interacting with online are listed below.

And many more…….

 

  1. Creating a platform

Super Blogger Challenge has been a key specimen in demonstrating that if people are provided with a platform to excel, they will make the most of it.

Thus, if ever given the opportunity, we all should unite and build platforms for others to grow and branch out. Not only will the likeminded people pour in, but they might also end up investing in the venture and promoting it to varying degrees.

 

  1. Branding & Marketing

What I am truly impressed with is the strategic thought that has gone into making this whole challenge a success. To start a blogging competition to create brand awareness about different products and to widely increase the online reach for the products, is pure genius.

Not only is everyone aware of the products like INSTACUPPA, but many are even buying it. That is how you put a good product in front of an audience and just watch it sell.

Moreover, the Super Blogger Challenge has resulted in bringing many aspiring and talented bloggers to the surface and in the eyes of a huge audience.

 

  1. Interactions

The best part of this Super Blogger Challenge is that we get to interact with different people across the nation and form friendships. We get honest feedback on our articles and everyone in the community is actually interested in each other’s posts. They don’t read it just for the sake of it. I’ve learned a great deal from this challenge and the importance of building social friendships with like-minded individuals is at the top.

 

  1. Promoting authentic content

Last but not the least, the importance of promoting authentic content. Everyone these days is fixated on plagiarising to succeed. People don’t give credit and end up reaping the benefits of someone else’s labor. Thus, it is an absolute necessity to bring good authentic content to a wide audience, so that the writers/bloggers can be accoladed for their hard work. Not only would this limit the ongoing plagiarism, but it would also encourage and push people to write their own content; which is exactly what the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 is doing.

Conquering Super Blogger Challenge 2019 #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

The ongoing Super Blogger Challenge 2018, has been a massive hit in the online blogging community. With over 64 individual blogs and websites taking part in the Super Blogger Challenge 2018, it has not only showcased an outstanding reach in the blogging community but has also managed to capture a wide audience throughout the nation.

Hosted by healthwealthbridge.com, fashionablefoodz.com and allaboutthewoman.com, the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 has been blooming within the blogging community and outreaching the masses. With its 5th week in process, out of the set 10 weeks, it has witnessed an incremental response. Now that we’ve come halfway in this journey, the stakes are higher, the audience is well-versed, and the prizes are enormous.

However, if you were unable to dive into this year’s Super Blogger Challenge, or if you are laden with regret that you were not able to take part in this experience, do not get disheartened. The Super Blogger Challenge will be back in 2019 and it will be bigger, better and have more vibrant prizes. So be ready to ride the learning curve and maybe even conquer the Super Blogger Challenge 2019.

Following are 8 tips that might be of some help to you in conquering the Super Blogger Challenge 2019.

  1. Perseverance

Being a successful blogger is not a piece of cake. It is not the tide that you can easily ride and then reap off the benefits. To be a successful blogger, you need to put in the work 24/7 and never give up. You need to find out the things that you are passionate about. You must post regularly. To stand a chance at conquering the Super Blogger Challenge 2019, you should be a successful blogger who posts relevant content.

  1. Abide by the rules

If you want to do well in any competition, you must abide by the rules. These rules are a set of guidelines provided by the organisers that you cannot and must not ignore. Following the rules will make sure that you aren’t disqualified from the challenge. A few examples of rules and regulations of this year’s challenge is that you must tag the 3 hosts at the end of your article and you must mention that your article is written as a part of the Super Blogger Challenge 2018 and cannot/should not be copied or reproduced in any way.

  1. Build an audience

For a blog or a website to do well in any competition, having a loyal audience provides you that extra edge. Try posting regular content that you think would appeal to the audience a lot more. Posting content that your audience can relate to will ensure them revisiting your blog/website again thereby converting a potential web surfer to a loyal audience.

  1. Always be on time

The sooner you post your blog and link it to the parent landing page, the sooner will more and more people be able to read your article, thereby adding to your views and your online reach. It is a first cum first serve basis. So be quick to post your article. Do not wait till the last day to post it.

  1. Interact with your audience and build a social media presence

Building a social media presence should be a must for every blog/website. First you need to be able to capture the attention span of the audience and then you need to form a bond with them. To build a bond, always interact with your audience and be open to feedback. Always reply to any comments and take keen interest in your audience.

  1. Be Creative

To stand out in any competition, you must be creative, and you must be unique. You need to figure out a way to appeal to the audience a lot more. Whether it be through your relevant and high-quality content, or through your massive social media prowess, you need to hack into the mindset of your readers and cater to their needs.

     7. Keep an eye on competition

To be at the forefront of any competition, one should always keep an eye on the other participants. Always be sure to check out the ones in the Hall Of Fame and the ones in the top picks of the week. Read the articles that have been nominated in the HALL OF FAME  or as the top pick of the week and aspire to build on that. Be appreciative of their posts and try to incorporate the same passion and commitment in your own articles.

     8. DO NOT PLAGIARISE

This is something that one should never do. Not just in a competition, but also in life. You shall never use someone else’s work and claim it to be your own. You shall never copy extracts from somewhere and post them online claiming it to be yours. Always be authentic. If you ever end up taking reference, GIVE DUE CREDIT. Do not try to hog up/feast on someone else’s credit. Plagiarism is both morally and ethically WRONG.

Feeling dehydrated? #INSTACUPPA to the rescue. #SuperBloggerChallenge2018 #Instacuppa

In our day-to-day lives, we often end up consuming beverages that not only have an adverse effect on our health but are also continuously deteriorating us from within. Think of all the beverages or drinks that you consume in a day. Have you ever bothered to even check the ingredient label at the back of your soda can or your juice box? You probably haven’t. It’s not your fault. You are just not aware of what is happening today in the food and beverage industry. Hopefully, this will change after you’re done reading this article.

The beverages that you drink regularly are laden with harmful preservatives and additives that rack and ruin your health. These additives and preservatives are added to increase the shelf life of the food or beverage, or to add flavour or texture to it. All of this is done to make sure that the product lasts longer and tastes better, thereby appealing to a wide customer base.

BUT AT WHAT COST? The big companies are using harmful preservatives and chemicals to increase the shelf life of their products while completely disregarding the health of their consumers. All of this just to maximise their profits. By the looks of it, they are most certainly not going to develop a moral conscience about it any time soon. So, it is our own responsibility to be aware of the stuff that we put in our body.

If you ever find yourself chugging down a beverage of any sort, just check the ingredient label once. You will be shocked to find out the number of harmful preservatives and chemicals that are used in its processing.

This is what the ingredient label of a cold drink looks like.

Moreover, the number of calories that you consume as you go down on these beverages is the reason why you are not physically fit. Lack of awareness about nutrition is the reason behind the drooping health standards in India.

Thus, there is an actual need to address these issues.

So, what to do? How do you stop consuming these beverages and shift to a healthier diet?

  1. Start consuming all natural and organic drinks and focus on a clean, healthy diet.
  2. Drink lots and lots of water.

Studies have shown that people who drink 4-5 litres of water everyday are considerably fit and healthier than those who reside on drinks and beverages for quenching their thirst.

But you can’t just keep drinking water all day, can you? You must have tried it many a times and failed.

Believe me, we all have.

Thus, finding an alternative is an absolute necessity. This is where a revolutionary product comes in.
