It is often heard that despite their efforts people are not getting desired result. There are many people in the world who work hard from day to night for nominal money with no prestige. Since daily life of each individual depends upon the earnings from the work they do, they keep moving forward with the hope that one day they will get the desired result for their work. Do you know ‘keep moving forward despite odds’ statement is very inspirational when stated in words but when someone faces it in action then only one can understand that it is not as inspirational as it appears. In reality, when odds appear in life, we begin to struggle. Many people struggle in different ways, some people struggle to win and some people struggle for not to fail and some people struggle merely for survival. Some people make their dreams into expectation. It depends upon the expectation of the persons that they are expecting from that certain kind of activity.
In 1997, when first book of Harry potter was published then no one thought that one day it will create a history from where a new world, a magical world will be born which will be admired and wished to live within by the people in the future. Even the fact is that the description of the magical world in the Harry Potter movies is one of the reasons why it became popular. Moreover, an entire generation grew up by reading Harry Potter books and watching its movies and today it became a household name for some people also. There are many people who wish to move and live permanently into magical world if it exists. After 8 movies of Harry Potter, the saga of adventures of Harry Potter and his friends came to an end at the Hogwarts. But its essence is still alive in the form of Fantastic Beasts movie series. In common terms of chronology, events of Fantastic Beasts movies happened way before Harry Potter and Voldemort were born. Personally I feel that it is a way to pay tribute to the most important and loving supporting character of the Harry Potter movies whose contribution is not lesser than any main character and that character is Albus Dumbledore.
Due to pandemic people all over the world is in chaos. In these situations, many are getting unemployed. Companies are getting bankrupted and firing their employees. Those who are searching for new jobs online are mostly scammed and robbed online. In this situation one of the legit, easy and profitable money making technique is starting a YOUTUBE channel. It is getting popular since people are locked inside their houses. Many people are starting their own YouTube channel and are getting success but million dollar question is what contents will cause cash inflow? Every channel in YouTube is not a successful channel despite the channel’s marketing is best but still it loses its popularity after sometime. After researching, I found that channel’s success depends upon the content that is shown. I observed that some channels which started few months ago have thousands of subscribers but those channels which are present on YouTube since many years are unable to attract hundreds of subscribers. So if a person is really serious of starting YouTube channel then that person must decide contents of YouTube channel. There are some suggestions which are gaining popularity in different age groups.
The world is changing and people are advancing technologically but still social stature of some people remains same. Even today cases of racism, caste-ism and untouchability arise from various parts of the world which is quite disturbing news. It is knowledgeable to all that humans are free to choose their region, language and profession. No one should be offended by the choices of other but some people feel that they are superior to others even though they have nothing to be proud of. Due to this reason, differences in society arises which causes unrest between various communities and division of opinions takes place. When the thoughts of each individual varies upto larger extent then the struggle to compromise arises which results in assaults between the individuals, communities, societies, localities, cities and ultimately between countries. People always forget that difference in opinion is the reason that the world had to tolerate two world wars which cost many lives physically, mentally and socially. Because of difference of opinion only there are people who remain narrow minded and they become stubborn to accept those who are different from them. It is one of the reasons why still there are many people who hides their sexuality and lives under shadows inside their closets. They still fear that some will not accept their sexuality even though constitutionally it is not a crime. Because they feel that people forcefully accept their sexual preference due to laws but they are despised by them inside. Actually, it is not fault of them as they are thinking so that people will hate them because in the past there are many cases where individuals are persecuted because of their sexual orientation. Though they are incidents of the past which can be heard as story but the terror which it gave birth still remains in dormant state of people’s mind. Even those who are unrelated to these incidents still fear that one day they also might face the same consequences as those victims faced. This is the reason why there are many who belong to LGBTQ community but still they are hiding their sexuality. One of these incidents which are even painful to hear and read is during the Second World War. Though there is no strong evidence behind this but that thought itself made my blood become cold while reading it. It is said that during Second World War, Hitler gave an order which states that all those who are homosexual and bisexual must be executed. Officially it is stated that about ten thousands of men and eight thousands of women were executed in Germany because they were either homosexual or even doubted as being homosexual but some stated that the actual figures of execution is much more than the official figures may about three times more, which is very disheartening to hear. So, just imagine those who are actually out there wishing to declare their sexuality openly to the world but tormenting them by constant hiding in their closets fearing that when may another Hitler will rise and again may execute the people like them. When people are not feeling safe, how can they truly feel freedom? There are still many countries which feel that homosexuality is crime and criticizes those countries that support them under the blankets. There are even some people who publicly support homosexuality but privately they despise them. If this type of mentality is being maintained by the society and its individuals then what is the use of having constitutional freedom, where even your own family members and friends hate and torture you. Similarly there are some cases from some countries which states that an individual is captured and tortured by performing abnormal acts in order to make his homosexuality disappear magically. People often find it weird to accept that particular individual is homosexual but they forgets that the person who they are hating is their friend or relative, they never think of emotional turmoil that person went through in order to come out and accept his/her sexuality in front of others. Hence these sort of matters must be taken care that no person should be harassed based on their sexuality and if that thing really is to happen then more awareness must be created especially in the remote areas who take more time to accept that. When such scenario arises when people are not judged based on their sexuality then only true freedom can be attained and more people can live peaceful without any fear.
There are many things in this world whose presence causes possible threat for livelihood of many other people. Some of those things can be avoided whereas some can be discarded but there are some which can neither be avoided nor discarded rather these create obstacle in development of some persons. That thing is drug addiction i.e. controlling emotional suffering with some medications temporarily. There is no end to it because as long as people who are suffering emotionally like depression, frustration, failure etc. they resort to these sorts of things and these things will be recommended to other people also, to handle their emotional problems. Hence it will ultimately spread like wild fire. Luckily, there are various organizations that are coming forward to help and constrict the spread of drug addiction, especially among young generation. There are even various medications which are available in market which will control drug addiction but there is another thing which is even worse than drug addiction. Surprisingly, this problem can develop in any person without any drugs or medication and it has the ability to destroy many lives. That problem is known as obsession. Yes! Obsession is more dangerous than drug addiction. It may sound small and silly problem; many may ask that how can obsession be more dangerous than drug addiction. I agree that mild obsession can never hurt anyone but when it becomes severe then it becomes a possible threat to the one who is obsessed and also to his surroundings. It creates psychological disorder in the brain. So, what is obsession and why it is considered dangerous? Obsession is psychological thought process which occupies a person’s mind and drives that person to extreme conditions. It is considered dangerous because when it is not checked and improved at correct time then it may lead to Obsessive Compulsive Order famously known as OCD. Basically it is anxiety disorder which causes suffering and permanent impairment to brain. Initially it is difficult to detect OCD but the researchers have classified some possible symptoms of OCD into four types. These are Contamination and washing, Symmetry and arranging, Doubt and harm, Unacceptable or Taboo thoughts. When OCD becomes severe then it becomes OCPD i.e. Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. In OCPD, the person undergoes personality disorder which is actually very dangerous because it will further result into split personality disorder. Hence everyone must take care their obsession doesn’t become inconvenience to others. Scientifically love and obsession are related because love is a healthy emotion which makes the heart feel light and happy. It spreads positivity whereas obsession can be said as excessive love which is an unhealthy emotion which makes the heart feel heavy and sad. When someone is obsessed, they forget the difference between correct and incorrect. The only thing they wish for is to complete the task to which they are obsessed. Is there is a way to recognize obsession and if there is then how to avoid it? Clinically symptoms have been stated above as four types of obsession. When a person is involved with excessive cleaning and fear of falling ill then it is first type of obsession i.e. contamination and washing. When a person starts worrying relentlessly about unorganized and unarranged things wherever they observe that and whatever work they do, they make sure that result is organized and symmetrical which is second type of obsession i.e. symmetry and arranging. The persons who have doubts about chances of accidental harm like checking locks of door, checking knob of cooking gas cylinders etc are symptoms of third type of obsession. The persons who shows the signs of irregular characteristics such violent and sexual nature thoughts towards young women and children, thinking bad about religious figures etc are symptoms of fourth type of obsession i.e. taboo thoughts. The fourth type of obsession is ‘purely obsessional’ in nature. Generally obsession takes place in successive steps inside someone’s mind, it may be due to abnormal childhood or due to abusive and violent guardians etc. which forces the victim to make artificial attachments to those for which they wish for. Eventually in time it becomes obsession. There is no particular cure or medicine for obsession but in Psychological science there are series of activities which will control obsession. These are: finding an alternative to the thing to which you are obsessed, gradually reducing the time spent with the thing you are obsessed with, setting up her goals and gradually prioritizing them day by day, occasionally try to distract yourself from obsession, developing new hobbies and skills, adopting and modifying new habits in your day to day life. These are some of common ways to overcome obsession. Hence we must take care of obsession which is why for me it more than dangerous than a drug addiction.
