A saint asked his disciples, Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, Because we lose our calmness, we shout for that.
But, why to shout when the other person is just next to you? asked the saint. Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?

A (An)

  • A and AN are called indefinite articles.
  • Indefinite means not specific.
  • Use A(AN) when you are talking about a thing in general, NOT a specific thing.

Examples:

  • I need a phone. Not a specific phone, any phone.
  • Use A(AN) when talking about a thing which is new, unknown, or introduced to a listener for the first time.
  • Also use A(AN) when you are asking about the existence of something.

Examples:

  • I have a car. The car is being introduced for the first time.
  • Similarly, use A(AN) to introduce what type of thing we are talking about.

Participatory Notes

  • Foreign Investments in India can broadly be classified into two categories :
    • Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and
    • investment made by Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIS).
  • However, there are number of restrictions in place which makes it difficult for foreign money to enter Indian markets and hence many investors prefer P-Note route to park their money in India.

  • There will always be fellow entrepreneurs with more funding, better connections or years of experience. One thing, however, that puts us all on a level playing field: the number of hours in a day. Figuring out how to effectively spend the 24 hours in each day is one of the most challenging parts of being a business owner.
  • When I first started out, I thought the main perk of working on my own as a publicist would be being able to do things, according to my own schedule. I didn’t have a daily routine. My schedule would just depend on my mood.
  • After about a year of functioning in this way, I realized that I needed to work during more normal business hours if I really wanted to grow my company. I decided to create a schedule and I still stick to one today. Not only did this make me feel significantly less stressed, I was getting more done in fewer hours!

BASICS

  • There are only two certain things in life – Death and Taxes.
  • A lot of planning goes into taxes.
  • Yet in India, apart from a life insurance policy, not enough thought goes into death.
  • The reason for this could be cultural.
  • Indians are superstitious and believe that talking or planning about something means that will happen.
  • Well guess what, Even if u don’t discuss about death, it will happen!
