Smoking Should be Banned in Public Areas
Should smoking be banned in public areas? Some people say that it is dangerous while others say that they are addicted to smoking which is why they start smoking here and there. But for me I strongly believe that smoking should be banned in public areas and especially where there are kids!
People who don’t smoke say that smoking should be banned in outdoor public areas because it creates pollution. Also inhaling the smoke can cause breathing problems and cancer.
While the other group says that smoking should not be banned! They say that the smokers have the right to smoke anywhere. They also say that if people are scared of getting sick they should avoid going to public places. They also say that smoking tobacco is better than using other drugs
I disagree with the people who say that smoking should not be banned. For me I would strongly prefer to ban smoking because smoking is polluting the air around us. And it is also dangerous for our health both smokers and non-smokers.
For these reasons, smoking should be banned from outdoor public venues. If they want to smoke, the government should provide them with specific areas where they can smoke.
How to Bake a Cake
Do you want to know how to bake a cake? You might have gone bored eating the same sweet every day such as cookies or cupcakes, right? So why not try to bake something different today! Below I have written some directions about how to bake a cake. So better not waste time and let’s get started.
To bake a cake you need half a teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of butter (room temperature), 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 2 cups of sugar, 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs, and last but not the least materials for frosting (optional).
First, use the electric mixer to shred butter for a minute or two. This will smoothen your butter. I would prefer you guys use unsalted better because it is kind of better!
Next, after the butter is smoothen, slowly add sugar while the mixer is on. Do this step slowly otherwise you might get messed up! It’s up to you how much sweet you want the cake to be so you can put the amount of sugar you want. Mix sugar and butter until it gets nice and fluffy!
Then, add two teaspoons of vanilla essence. I would prefer vanilla extract rather than using the artificial vanilla flavoring!
Next, add eggs and mix them with the batter. You have to add eggs one at a time. Be careful with this step because you don’t want your eggs to be spreading all over the kitchen and having the kitchen smell like eggs.
Then, take a separate bowl and mix 3 cups of flour with 1 tablespoon of baking powder and a half teaspoon of salt. If you use salted butter then do not put salt. Mix these dry ingredients properly.
Next, add flour to the batter in three stages, while mixing them together.
After mixing the batter pour it into your greased baking pan and put it in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for about 25 to 35 minutes.
Finally, you can decorate your cake with the frosting if you can make one following my recipe that I’ll explain may be some other time. And enjoy eating your delicious cake!

“SUCCESS!” People die to hear this word. Everyone needs success in his/her life. We do many things in order to become successful. However, being successful is not just a cup of tea. Success is gained only by hard work and determination.
They say that ‘Rome was not built in one day.’ Similarly, success is not just the story of one day. We have to work hard and get the best out of ourselves to be successful. We face many ups and downs in the path of success.
We do not gain success in our first attempt. We fail many times and these failures teach us something important. These important things help us a lot in the path of success. Some people lose their hope and give up whereas there are others who face these problems with all their courage and never give up as well as look out for their mistakes and try to rectify them. These determined people become successful one day or the other and set up an example for the whole world.
We all know about Thomas Alva Edison. He was the man who gave light to the world through one of the greatest inventions of all time, a bulb. He did not invent the bulb in his first try. Even he was unsuccessful. He tried for about thousands of times to invent the bulb. It was his determination that made him successful. He never gave up and had a positive perspective. He always said, “I have not failed. I have found 1000s of ways that are not working”.
Therefore, it is important for us to understand that we will face many problems in our path of success, but we have to change our perspective and look at these failures as the stepping-stones of success. BE DETERMINED TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

Hello Everyone, Namaskar! You might be wondering what does “Namaskar” mean right? So to tell you, it is a greeting in my language! Now you might be thinking that is it a greeting from China, Japan, Nepal, or India. If you guessed India then you are surely correct. Yes, I am from India, my country, my mother land!
India is a very beautiful and populous country in the world! It is best known for its spices, festivals, grand weddings, beautiful sceneries, delicious foods and dances! Many people around the world celebrate Indian festivals, dance on Indian songs and the most amazing thing of all is that people also watch Indian movies and some of them are also translated into different languages.
India is the biggest democracy and has 29 states and 7 territories. Our country has many land features such as rivers, mountains, and lakes. India has a lot of interesting places like Golden Temple, Taj Mahal, and Amer Fort.
You might find India a bit crowded since it has a big population. One thing, when it is summer time in India it is really hot there and when it is winter then you might find it even worse. It can be extremely cold. But there is one season which you might love! Rainy season! It is really fun jumping here and there and getting wet in the rain.
If you go to India then you must see the tigers and the wildlife of India! It is really fantastic. India has the largest population of Indian elephants. Our country has a mix of different animal species. India also consists of many national parks such as, Kaziranga National Park and Bandhavgarh National Park. Valley of Flowers National Park is also one of the best parks. It is full of beautiful flowers and mountains! It is like being in heaven! I am sure that after visiting these places you will be so much amazed.
One more thing which will amaze you is Indian food! The different varieties of delicious food from different states are very famous! They look so good! Some of the most famous food is samosa, jalebi, gulab jamun, rasgullla, kaju barfi, chicken tikka, paneer pakoda, and idli sambar.
India is also a land of many festivals! The main festivals which are celebrated in India are Holi, Diwali, and Raksha Bandhan. Holi is also known as festival of colors! We use colors to put on other people. This is a celebration for arrival of spring and celebration of victory of one of our prince over an evil named Holika! Diwali, also the festival of light is a celebration of the return of two most known gods to their home after a long exile for 14 years in the forest! On this day people light up their houses, wear new cloths, participate in family prayers, and share sweets with other people. Raksha Bandhan symbolizes the bonding of brother and sister. On this day sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s arm wishing him wellbeing! And the brother vows his sister to protect her!
So this is all about my country, India! What do you think? Please share below in the comment box. And don’t forget to share something about your country too!
