Let’s fight corruption

August 29, 2010

Have u ever imagined India without corruption . If not, now just close your eyes and think of it. Isn’t it pleasant? Isn’t it exciting? Isn’t it wonderful to have an India without corruption!! Then, when everyone can imagine so why it is that corruption still prevails in our country? Is the fault in us or in the community? What ever be the reason we are now suffering.

India today is totally in the hands of corruption. Money is the bottom-line of all the game. Money is required even to get access to the basic necessities that are required in day to day life. We pay some people so that they do those duties that they are lawfully supposed to do. Does this mean that, no one is raising one’s voice against corruption? No, that’s absolutely not the case. There are people who raise their voice against it. But do they get the common man’s support? Few are not courageous enough to fight alone and the other few sacrifice either their principles or their lives due to lack of support. Does this mean that common man is not interested in having an India without atrocities? Again this is a rhetorical question. For the common man to support any movement against corruption, he must have knowledge about it. Half of the country’s population is below the poverty line where they cannot afford a paper or a television. The others who get the knowledge about the movement and are willing to support despite any hardships that they may face are only about 10-15% of the population.

So what should be done? It is our responsibility to awaken the others of the society. Inspiration is the greatest strength. Provide them that. We shall reach out to the slums and the schools , awaken them to abolish corruption. Encourage youth politics. Youth politics that are not hereditary are the need of the hour for the country. Let us all join hands and give this country its past glory.

Come; let’s join hands to fight corruption.

Top 5 Secrets Of A Great Leader
If you were not naturally handed the characteristics of a good leader, you should learn to fake it! A lot of people naturally own at least a few of the qualities needed to be a good leader, but they don’t know how to make it work for them effectively. Learning exactly what makes a good leader can help anyone, no matter how shy, become an effective leader in the workplace as well as in their personal life.

There will come many circumstances in which strong leadership qualities will work to your advantage. Whether it is fighting for a hot new job or convincing a friend to do something, the qualities of a good leader will extend themselves into literally every part of your life if fully embraced.

So what makes a good leader, and how can you become one? There are five characteristics of a good leader that can be absorbed into your life right now.

Keep A Positive Attitude
This is one of the most important qualities of a good leader, but it may not be a simple one for a number of people to mimic. A warm smile is a good start. What makes a good leader successful is a warm, enthusiastic attitude that looks at the bright side of life. If you appear to be friendly and approachable, others will feel more open to listening to you. If you want others to follow you, a positive outlook and a healthy amount of excitement for life become essential characteristics of a good leader.

Watch Your Actions
What makes a good leader stand out from others who fail at leadership is often daily behavior. Never expect others to follow the rules you disregard yourself, or to listen to your advice when you ignore it yourself. What makes a good leader successful in many common circumstances is their leading example of acceptable actions.

Boost Your Self Esteem And Confidence
While it is one of the essential qualities of a good leader, it is nearly impossible to pretend you have it. Appearing to know exactly what you are doing and where you are going is essential if you expect others to follow along. What makes a good leader reliable is the ability to hold their head high even when things are uncertain. Remaining calm in the most troubling moments is what makes a good leader trustworthy and relied upon by others.

The Guidelines of Effective Management
The characteristics of a good leader often resemble common managerial skills. Handing over a task to ensure that the main goal is accomplished is necessary for a leader. The best leadership qualities are those that make others want to do as you tell them, and of course that positive attitude helps.

Maintaining High Standards
An effective leader expects only the best from themselves and others. It is essential to build up the self confidence of others, so that they will deliver the best work possible. The strengths of each person need to be discovered so the team is as successful as possible.

Essentially, what makes a good leader stand out from the crowd is a high level of self confidence, and the ability to make others feel confident as well. For those that lack in these skills, it is time to start practicing these qualities until they come easily.

Fix Corrupt Drivers and Errors
by Vinny

Having Windows drivers that work correctly is vital in order to prevent crashes and to keep your computer running efficiently. In many cases your drivers will continue to function with no problems, but from time to time some driver problems will arise. Luckily, corrupt drivers and other driver errors don’t have to be more than an inconvenience when they arrive. It’s possible to repair or replace any Windows drivers that give you trouble, making sure that they don’t cause unneeded problems or keep you from being able to optimize your PC.

If you have the installation disc for your Windows installation, you should be able to perform a repair function by inserting the disc into your CD or DVD drive while Windows is running. If you have corrupted or damaged Windows drivers, the system will repair or replace them automatically while the repair program runs. Attempting to repair Windows at the first sign of trouble is a great way to prevent crashes and keep your copy of Windows from encountering massive slowdowns and other running problems.

How To Use Recycle Bin Recovery.
Posted on May 19, 2009
by Allie Sanchez

We’ve all experienced that sinking feeling when we realize that we’ve deleted a file by mistake that we actually need. This might just be a file that you’ve created at home for fun or a file that you have been creating for work purposes. Either way, accidental deletion can seem like a real headache.

Don’t, however, panic too quickly here. You have access to an in-built solution on your computer that could see you find your file again in minutes and get it back where it belongs. This solution is sitting on your desktop although you may not have noticed it before. It is known as the Recycle Bin.

The Recycle Bin works just like a waste paper basket that you might have by your computer desk. Say you jot down some notes on a scrap of paper and when you are done with it you throw it away. A little later you realize that the scrap of paper also had a phone number on it that you need.

So, what do you do? Reach down into the bin, rummage around until you find your piece of paper and take it out. This is basically how your computer’s Recycle Bin works. Like a real bin, until you empty it the Recycle Bin holds the files and data that you have deleted or thrown away from your system.

To get a deleted file back from this utility you first need to open it up to check if the file is still there. Your Recycle Bin will show you a list of the files that you have deleted. When you find the file that you need to restore all you need to do is to click on it and then click on Restore.
The file will now move out of the Recycle Bin. It will be placed back in the location into which you originally saved it so you will be able to open it, read it and work on it once again. But, what if you have emptied your Recycle Bin already?

If you have already emptied your Recycle Bin then you may not be able to use this method of file restoration. If you are at this stage then it’s kind of like having emptied your waste bin into the garbage. But, you’d still know that your scrap of paper that you originally threw away was still in the garbage somewhere. You might just need to dig deeper to get at it.

The same goes for files that you have deleted even if you’ve emptied your Recycle Bin. Files are not automatically completely deleted from your computer even after you’ve emptied your Bin here. You may not be able to find them via standard links but the data that they contained will still be stored on your computer in the background.

The easiest way to find and restore files in this state is to use a specialist software product that can search for deleted files. These programs can help you source and restore accidental deletions which can be real useful in this scenario.
