by Deepak Lal
The emptiness of the heart is what makes me remember the Gautama Buddha. It is the feeling of nothingness when you own nothing but yourself. Buddha tried to know the secret of happiness, death, life, sufferings. and how to escape from these all.

Understanding the whole scenarios behind the hidden curtains of unknowing minds, Human Being stays in a state of deep slumber and unconsciousness, that’s why he becomes unknown to the realities of life and happiness. Humans always want to unlock the doors of happiness for the peace of mind and heart. For this, Millions of people are born around the globe to teach you, give you thy keys, and make you a learned person in terms of your social life. They teach us the very lessons of living a life. Siddhartha Gautama is one of them. 

Whenever I hear or listen to the word Buddha, one thing strikes my mind that is Emptiness of Heart. Emptiness is throwing away all that you have, in order to make a space in a heart for the One Who is in us. It is the Human nature that he desires or longs for some...

Overall, the World Youth Forum is a great opportunity for youth and students around the globe to build their capacity and open up their eyes, as well as for young entrepreneurs to present their projects and acquire crucial skills while exchanging their unique perspectives.

In December 2019, I had an incredible opportunity to attend the third edition of World Youth Forum in Sharm El-Sheikh, the city of 'peace' in beautiful Egypt where I represented Myanmar and join over 7,000 youth from 164 countries. The World Youth Forum has been held in Egypt since 2017 on an annual basis. Among a number of international conferences I have attended, this is one of the most engaging and professionally organized platforms for youth leaders.

The forum allowed us to freely exchange our perspectives on the global issues around peace, creativity, and development. We were able to inspire each other's experiences and present our fresh ideas and solutions throug...

by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Many people go to the gym every day and still don’t get the results they want to. Eventually, this leads them to quit the gym. However, no one actually wants to quit. You started going to the gym because you wanted to get fit and it is a great thing. But lack of knowledge and improper training are the factors that make people quit.

The trainers in the gyms nowadays do not have time to train everyone and hence, people don’t know if they are doing the exercises properly or not. And the biggest reason for poor results is improper exercising.

I’ve met many people who struggle with proper workout and a balanced diet. I love to help people with my experience because I am physically fit with the help of my diet and workout plan (not bragging). I have managed to bring together a set of some steps that will help you a lot with your workouts, be it gains or losses.

Get Ready To Build Your Legacy With These Eminem Quotes

by Kunal Bansal Chandigarh
Eminem is one of the greatest rappers alive right now and there are a lot of reasons for the same. Marshall Bruce Mathers III took birth on October 17th, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. He was born in a broken home and his father left him when he was just a couple of months old. Young Marshall grew up without a father and with a mother who was addicted to the drug known as Valium.

Mathers had trouble in school because of him being bullied all the time, mostly for being the ‘New Kid’. He had no interest in studies except the English language. Marshall always got fascinated with every new word he came across. In the triumph to grow his vocabulary, he started keeping a dictionary with him and searched for every new word he came across (he probably still does it).

In spite of all this, he managed to make a name for himself as Eminem and Slim Shady in the Rap game. Throughout these years, he has proven that he a force not to be messed with. All thanks to his amazing lyrical ability, mind-blowing vocabulary, astonishing wordplay, and butter-like flow. Eminem knows how to set an example and inspire people with the things he says.

22. December 2019 at 19:09
by Maulline Gragau
According to UNESCO 2016 Statistical Report, more than 200 million girls have undergone female genital mutilation in 30 countries. Pursuant to the data, 44 million of those who have undergone the cut are aged 14 years and younger. With 56 percent, Gambia is one of the leading countries with a high prevalence of FGM within this age category and is followed closely by Mauritania and Indonesia.

Somalia, Guinea and Djibouti are among the countries with the highest prevalence of FGM among women and girls aged 15 - 49. They stand at 98, 97 and 93 percent respectively.

Female Genital Mutilation

Female Genital Mutilation refers to a number of procedures such as clitoridectomy and infibulation performed on young girls and women and varies across regions and cultures. Some of the procedures are life -threatening and almost always affects one's quality of life. Women activists have always argued that the practice not only violates the rights of women and girls but also undermines their position in society. Recently, I visited Merca and Mogadishu with a good friend of mine Fauziyah (not her real name) who runs a rescue/counselling centre for young girls and wo...

Social media bill: bad business for youth development in Nigeria
22. December 2019 at 19:05
by Victor Oyelade
If you are Nigerian, news in town is that of the reading and debating of the Controversial Social Media Bill. The Bill has generated lots of attention within and outside Nigeria given that it has passed the second reading in the Nigerian Senate. It seeks “Jail” and “death penalty” for offenders for putting out false information or “Hate Speech” on Social Media. Here is why I believe such a Bill spells doom for Youth Development in Nigeria:

“It will take us backward”. Recently, the Federal Governments announced that it will be making available

a Sexual Offenders Register. Also, the Kano state govt. recently announced a law that only girls who have

completed secondary school education can be legally married. Social Media has played a huge role in

achieving such inspiring feats in the crusade against rape and child-bride syndrome. Reports on social

media {genuine and false) went viral. They’ve all contributed their one cents to sanitizing our clime.

Imagine what an absolute withdrawal of this power will do?

“It will lead to reduction of Youth Champions and Advocates”. Campaigns like #BringBackOurGirls, which

helped put pressure to secure the release of some chibok Boko Haram victims, were brought to limelight
