Peer pressure, social media and a host of new age ailments have resulted in the ‘”Fear of missing out” (FOMO). Millennials, boomers and Generation Z are feeling it the most. Each time one says “yes” to something in the fear of feeling left out.

This results in one abandoning their own path by pretending or proclaiming to admire what is currently popular or widely discussed. It’s all about courage; courage is what one needs to stay your course and gratitude for your own path to keep one grounded.


Social media can often stem up this pervasive anxiety due to the basic foundational unprocessed belief acted out and the observable behaviors are noticed like “Pleasing others”, or “Acting out to be perfect” – these are common drivers from the famous Eric Berne theory of transactional analysis. Dr Paras Life-Leadership Coach and Founder of Matrrix shows you you can tune into your critical inner in order not to abandon your path or your boundaries for your own special adventure.

Reframing your mind

This factor highly emphasis on effectively framing and re-considering things in a different perspective by using the filter perceptions to create a perfect meaning for the mind.

The filter we see within us and outside are two different phenomenon for example- When you look at a young woman post a picture on Instagram with a caption which includes brand tags such as #ShoesfromJimmyChoo or #T-shirtfromforever21 etc. it may instantly give you a feeling of “wow! Her world is so awe-inspiring”!

We need to change this perception and give it a new possible meaning that the reality of life isn’t about just wearing brands or having an expensive cell phones, it’s all about what kind of integrity we create for ourselves.

Re-check Your Behavior

You can gain confidence by just aligning your behavior. Examine the current scenario with your inner reality and correct your behavior. Recheck the commitment you have made to yourself and your dreams and thus align your higher self with your wisdom and core values towards life.

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social.

What Is Bullying?

Bullying is a pattern of recurrent aggressive behavior in which one person (or a group of individuals) in a position of authority intentionally intimidate or abuse another individual to cause bodily or emotional harm to that other. Bullying may take place in either a physical or verbal manner. Bullied individuals, as well as those who bully others, may have long-term repercussions.

Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social. Bullies utilize their position of power — such as physical strength, knowledge of something embarrassing, or popularity — to exert control over or damage other people. Many people assume that bullying occurs solely during childhood; nevertheless, bullying does not necessarily stop after a person reaches the age of adulthood.

Copper earrings

Silver and gold have always been preferred when it comes to wearing jewellery. Right from the times of monarchy in India, wealth and riches have been associated with wearing gold and silver for the various properties they have. Copper is a metal that has always been worn by the poor. It is not a metal that carries a significant association with health or wealth, but wearing at least one article of copper is extremely beneficial for health.

Copper is a reddish-brown metal that cannot be worn on its own. It has to be worn in the form of an alloy to prevent a reaction. Copper oxidizes in air and forms a green layer on it when exposed, much like the Statue of Liberty. Usually, bangles, chains, or rings of copper always have brass and traces of silver in them which helps with stabilizing its reactivity.

Traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market.

By Md Waquar Haider

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.

The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.

Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.

According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.
