Top 10 Moments of Respect Between Fierce Rivals

Posted: 31 Jul 2013 09:02 PM PDT

Be it in the sporting field, politics, scientific discoveries, academics or in a battleground, history is replete with incidents when a strong and fierce adversary has won the appreciation on the stronger, better or winning opponent. Perhaps earning respect from an adversary is the greatest honour for someone who goes down gallantly in any competitive contest. Picking out best moments of respect earned among fierce rivals is no easy task but here we pick out ten such moments which would figure among the top ten lists:

10. Alexander the Great and King Porous:

Greek conqueror Alexander in his quest to expand the empire deep into Asia encountered a fierce opponent in King Porous on the plains of Indus valley in North India in 326 BC. Winning the hard fought battle on Jhelum River compelled Alexander to treat the vanquished king with respect for the bravery displayed on the field. Even in defeat Porous was gracious enough to demand respect of equals that the victor did willingly agree to. Before advancing further, Alexander not only restored the kingdom of Porous but also gained a client king to administer the vast empire which stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to Indus River.

9. After Battle of Waterloo, exiling Napoleon Bonaparte to St Helena:

For attempting to revive the French Empire, Napoleon Bonaparte first having escaped from exile and then losing at the Battle of Waterloo on 18th June 1815 could have heavier price for daring to take on the allies, led by arch rival Britain. It was out of respect to one of Europe's ablest administrators and fierce conqueror that the British forces spared his life and banished Napoleon to St Helena, a small island in the Atlantic where he died 6 years later.

8 Mark Antony appreciations for Marcus Brutus:

Dramatically played out in Julius Caesar play by Shakespeare, the rivalry between Mark Antony and Marcus Brutus is a classic political rivalry following the assassination of the great Roman. Though the Caesar funeral speech of Antony, before it ends turns ironic and incites an irate mob, but even in the dramatic version the noble qualities of Brutus did get his bitter rival to praise them publically

7. Tennis stars Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova:

The on court rivalry among these two female tennis players was legendary but Navratilova after winning a gruesome game at the 1985 Australian Open acknowledged before the crowds, "If somebody had told me in 1973 that Chris and I would play each other 67 times, I think I would have quit right then." From 1973 to 1988 the two players faced each other 80 times, of which 60 were in finals and 14 of them at Grand Slam title matches.

6. Chess: Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer

It was not a rivalry of two grandmasters of Chess but one of two cultures who stood across the dividing line at the height of the Cold War. American grandmaster Fischer defeating Soviet Union icon Spassky in the 1972 World Chess Championship has been considered the match of 20th Century. Though Fischer defeated Spassky, ending a 24 year unbroken supremacy of Soviet grandmasters in the game but the sportsman that Spassky was could not stop him from applauding one well played game of Fischer. Later in life when Fischer faced jail for defying American laws, Spassky defended him.

5. Boxing: Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier

This rivalry in the ring and outside the ring did have the two great boxers, between 1971 and 1975 fight three times, of what has been labeled as the fight of the century and is considered one of greatest boxing bouts in history. Though Ali got the better of Frazier in two of the three slugfest bouts and though Frazier never actually forgave Ali but that did not stop him in 1978 from appearing on This is Your Live Tribute to Ali where he referred to him as a 'great guy'

4 Cricket: Pakistan players celebrate Indian teams 1983 Cricket World Cup win

On field and off field India-Pakistan rivalry ever since the two countries were partitioned from one nation in 1947 is legendary but guards were let down in  the summer of 1983 at Lords ground London, when India beat reigning two time champions West Indies to lift the World Cup. The win gave ascendancy to Asian cricket but for once, the India-Pakistan rivalry was kept aside on the day of the historic win.

3. Business: Steve Jobs and Bill Gates

The rivalry between Jobs and Gates has shaped the world of computers as we have it today. Though both went onto build world class companies but the two never lost respect for each other, while fiercely competing in businesses and innovative technologies. Ultimate tribute to Jobs was handed out by Gates as "We did lots of tablets well before Apple did but they put the pieces together in a way that succeeded."

2. Business: Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla

Current wars DC versus AC unfolded birth of commercial electricity into modern life. Though it was AC or alternate current propagated by Tesla that won the day but he and Edison had become bitter rivals much before that even though the two of them at collaborated on the project earlier. Much is made out of the acrimonious rivalry between the two but Telsa as quoted in Seifers biography remarked of Edison, "I was amazed at this wonderful man who, without early advantages and scientific training had accomplished so much.

1. Politics: Pak president Prevez Musharraf salutes Indian PM Vajpayee

Public display by politicians grudgingly acknowledging respect for a bitter rival are rare but the former Pakistan President surprised many at one gathering when after delivering a speech about how to taken regional and India-Pakistan relations forward, Musharraf before taking his seat on the dais saluted the then Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who could not acknowledge it because the salutary gesture was made behind his back.

Top 10 Tips To Improve Your Vocabulary

Posted: 30 Jul 2013 10:36 PM PDT

Do you want to improve your vocabulary? Do you find yourself using the word awesome to describe everything good? Do you dream of being an author but feel your vocabulary is not strong enough? If for any of these reasons or any other reason, you want to learn vocabulary then you need to know the right way to do it. Memorizing words from a list is the most common and the most stupid way of going about learning vocabulary. We learn words in context of their use and by using them ourselves in our own sentences. Learning a word in isolation is like learning to swim in your living room. If you’ve tried to memorize words from a vocabulary list you know what I mean. Thankfully it is not as hard as it seems to learn new words. Here are top 10 tips to improve your vocabulary.

10. Join A Word Of The Day Email List:

There are many such sites which offer to email you one new word every day. This is a great way to start improving your vocabulary. Usually these emails contain the word, its meaning, pronunciation, origin and examples of use in a sentence. It only takes a few minutes to go through such an email and everyday you are introduced to a new and interesting word. You might not remember all of them but it is a good place to start.

Join A Word Of The Day Email List

9. Read A Lot:

If you want to improve your vocabulary then you have to become a voracious reader. Read whatever you can get your hands on. But mostly try to read good writing that has a good vocabulary and good grammar. Reading cheap writing is hardly useful as you won’t find any new words in there. The more you read, the more exposure you get to new words.

Read A Lot

8. Look Up Unknown Words Immediately:

Going along with the above tip is this tip to look up unknown words immediately. It’s no point finding new words while reading if you don’t look them up immediately. A lot of times when we read and find a new word that we don’t know, we try to guess at what it means according to the context of the story and if we find something that makes a little bit of sense we move on with reading the book. It’s because the book is interesting and we don’t want to put it down to pick up a dictionary. But if you want to improve your vocabulary get in the habit of doing this. Making notes of the words to look up later means that you might not look it up if you don’t get the time later so do it right at the moment. It will also help you to appreciate the writing better as well.

Look Up Unknown Words Immediately

7. Memorize Spellings:

When learning new words a lot of us just focus on the meaning and how to use it in sentences. But we must also learn the spellings of the words. This ingrains the word in our memory and we’d be less likely to forget it. When you start looking at the spelling of a word you will also find more about the origin of the word from the root of the word which helps again in better understanding the word and its use.

Memorize Spellings

6. Learn New Words From Other Sources:

Reading is not the only source of learning new words. You can also learn from other sources such as movies, songs, TV and other people. The idea is to stay open to new words all the time. Whenever you hear a new word, try to find out what it means. The more open you are to new words the more your vocabulary will improve.

Learn New Words From Other Sources

5. Do Word Puzzles:

Doing word puzzles and playing other word games such as scrabbles is a great way to improve vocabulary. Since the focus is not on word learning but rather on playing, it makes it easier to learn new words. Do it for the fun and also learn new words on the side; there couldn’t be a better deal than that.

Do Word Puzzles

4. Read Various Topics:

One important thing to remember is to read various topics and genres of books. Also read magazines on various topics and read newspapers too. Different genres use different words in different ways. If you stick to one style or one topic you’ll be limiting yourself to a small area of knowledge. Reading different topics will ensure that you come across a wide variety of words.

Read Various Topics

3. Write Daily:

The best way to memorize words is to write them in sentences. Writing is important and if you want to improve your vocabulary you have to start writing daily. You can write a journal or a blog or just write sentences in a vocabulary journal. Writing will also help you to remember the spellings and get deeper into the history and usage of the word.

Write Daily

2. Read The Dictionary:

It sounds a dorky thing to do but one great way to improve your vocabulary is to read the dictionary. Just open a random page and look up a random word. Once you get in the habit of reading a dictionary it can become addictive. You can learn all about the word and see the synonyms in the thesaurus as well. When reading the dictionary you’ll find that one word leads to another and that one leads to another and so on.

Read The Dictionary

1. Use New Words In Conversations:

The most important tip to improve your vocabulary is to remember to use the words in normal conversation. Some words might be too formal for conversation but use them anyway. This is the best way to remember a word for a lifetime. Once you use it in a real life conversation you’ll never forget it again. Remember to not use too many formal words in your speech though as otherwise people will think you are just a pretentious snob.

Top 10 Stupidest Comments Made By Indian Politicians

Posted: 30 Jul 2013 10:20 PM PDT

Just 10? Yes, just 10. And chances are you would have made your own list by now, what with so much of stupidity gushing out the politicians' mouth. Ranging from funny to downright offensive, the statements do no good other than expose the very figures we voted in once, and make us sit-up, take note and remember to not go to the poll station half-asleep or hung-over the next time around. Hopefully, we will not make news for quoting these gaffes out of context! The top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian Politicians (in ascending order) are -

10. Digvijaya Singh:

India is better than Pakistan, where blasts take place, every day, every week.

This man knows how to steal the limelight away from Mallika Sherawat – for his gift of the gab, only. What a comparison he makes! By all means, love your country, but such a senseless comparison does no good – neither to the neighbor nor to the fact that terror does attack India all too often. Were you not told in your moral science class to aim higher, and not compare lower, Diggy?

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

9. Mamata Bannerjee:

I am a simple man.

You read that right, unless you heard it directly from the horse's mouth on prime time. On a popular news channel, Didi was found confusing sexes and exchanging genders without really realizing why the camera man was giggling behind the lens, or the country laughing. I know I too went 'tch tch' watching the derisive jokes that followed such a confidently spoken statement. But you know, it is silly, isn't it? Such a case of lost in translation has never been seen before. Thankfully, twitterati was not within the reach of her palms. Didi-dada-didi, dumb-dee-doo … !

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

8. Lalu Prasad Yadav:

What does dating mane?

Now, Lalu ji's middle name is humour and the last name phunny. But it is certainly hard to believe he would not know the meaning of dating. was a dating website launched back in 2005, apparently named after Lalu and Rabri's matrimonial bond as sweet as freshly rolled laddoos. When Lalu ji was asked what he thought of it, he asked the reporter what dating means. Either his army of issues did not ever date, or they forgot to update their daddy on the latest. I wonder if Rabri ji knew what it meant?

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

7. Narendra Modi:

The middle-class is more beauty conscious than health conscious – that is a challenge. If a mother tells her daughter to have milk, they'll have a fight. She'll tell her mother, “I won't drink milk. I'll get fat.”

Too many Modi fans on the planet all too suddenly and so I duck under the table as I use this quote as stupid. Are all the young girls refusing to drink milk wondering why he would say this? This is the chief minister of Gujarat in response to a question on what he was doing to check malnutrition. His implication – Gujarati girls appear malnourished because of their efforts at remaining fashionably thin. Well, hopefully this Prime Ministerial candidate will not explain away other serious problems besetting the country with similar heights of silliness!

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

6. Rahul Gandhi:

We will stop 99 per cent of the attacks, but one per cent of the attacks might get through and that's what I am saying.

Just what are you saying, baba? We are very happy that you are saying something, even if not doing anything, but at least keep it simple and sensible. All those foreign degrees and still! If all the blasts in various cities were 1 per cent, I am kissing the ground you walk on for preventing the 99 per cent you talk about. Really! Tip – do exchange notes with mummy ji before you leave for your next press conference, or village visit.

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

5. Sushil Kumar Shinde:

This is a serious matter. This is not the subject of a film.

Sexist and offensive, such a remark is just not acceptable coming from a man who is globalised enough to consult an eye doctor in US of A and enjoy the position of Home Minister when at home. The remark was made against former actress and SP MP Jaya Bachchan when she interrupted him during a debate on violence in Assam. Mr. Shinde, it would have been better for your sake if it actually was a movie review discussion. You would have had much more to contribute there, than in the subject of internal security of the country!

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

4. Mulayam Singh Yadav:

Only girls and women from affluent class can go forward. Remember this, you (rural women) will not get a chance. Our rural women did not have that much attraction.

Reeking of stupidity and falsehood, both, this is what Mulayam Singh said while addressing a rally in Barabanki – a reason as to why the Women's Reservation Bill will not benefit the rural women. Because, they are not attractive! Really, beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and the beholders name is certainly not Mulayam.

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

3. Kapil Sibal:

There was zero loss to the Government as a result of giving 2G licences to new players in 2008.

Communications and IT Minister did not seem to be very "with it" when he suggested this. Apart from contradicting the big daddy of audit called CAG, with one sweeping statement he made Rs. 1.76-lakh crore turn into zero. Sircar family, make way! Magician Kapil Sibal is now here, and he knows how to erase big fat numbers and turn them into "presumptive loss". Perhaps, even pen down a cat-bat-mat rhyme for the same. Such multi-talent, don't you think?

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

2. Om Prakash Chautala:

Marry off girls to prevent rape.

When CMs give such solutions for tackling the increasing crime of rapes you really want to strip them of the Gandhi topi and everything else they acquired over and under the table, thanks to your vote. Does not this remind you of what a certain Khap leader had said about girls being married at 16 so that their sexual needs are met and they don't need to go elsewhere?  If only we could get our hands around such necks and show them what we women reading this really desire doing for now – 16 or not!

Top 10 stupidest comments made by Indian politicians

1. Jitender Chhatar:

To my understanding, consumption of fast food contributes to such incidents. Chowmein leads to hormonal imbalance evoking an urge to indulge in such acts.

Some statements are so stupid they make you cry with their abundant stupidity. This is what this Khap panchayat leader's "understanding" tells him, about why rapes happen. Understanding of what, pray tell Mr. Chhatar. Of culinary expertise or aphrodisiac ingredients or human anatomy? Clueless was a word tailor-made for you. Thus proved!

Top 10 Signs Of An Unhealthy Relationship

Posted: 30 Jul 2013 06:45 PM PDT

Relationships are complex because when two individuals come together, it is highly unlikely to find a perfect fit. Despite this fact, with a little bit of work most relationships can work. People try to look for that perfect partner and many times give up on very good ones. But often the opposite happens and people try to make it work with the wrong person. There are signs that can warn you if you are trying to make the wrong relationship work. If you see any of these signs, get out of the relationship immediately as it will best for both you and your partner. Look out for these top 10 signs of an unhealthy relationship.

10. Your Partner Ignores You In Public:

If your partner is very close and nice to you in private but ignores you in public then it is a sign that they are not comfortable with showing their affection publicly. This usually means that they are ashamed of you and think that they can do better. In such a situation it is better to leave your partner before they leave you for someone they think is a better match for them.

Your Partner Ignores You In Public

9. Your Partner Is Overly Protective:

People can be very protective of the ones they love but some people are overly protective. This is a sign of an unhealthy relationship. They might love you but if they try to protect you from every little thing, so much so that they don’t let you be independent then they are stopping your growth as a person. They want you to be dependent on them as it makes them feel. If you do something on your own it will make them angry. A healthy relationship is one where both persons respect the independence of others. It is important to understand that people need to face problems to grow. Trying to protect them from every problem is suffocating to that person.

Your Partner Is Overly Protective

8. Your Partner Gets Jealous Often:

Many people are considered to be the jealous types, who don’t want anyone else to even come close to their partners. This again is an extreme of love and like every extreme is unhealthy. If your partner gets jealous too often, it maybe because they are insecure or too possessive. This type of relationship can be very smothering and suffocating to your growth.

Your Partner Gets Jealous Often

7. Your Partner Constantly Criticizes You:

If your partner is always criticizing whatever you do then it can be very hard to live with them. It’s because they don’t appreciate you. This type of relationship is common with a dominant type personality. They don’t appreciate you but still want to be with you just so that they can carry on criticizing you for the rest of your life. This is definitely not a relationship you want to be in.

6. Your Partner Makes You Feel Worthless:

Another trick used by dominant personality types is to make their partners feel worthless all the time. They might do this by commenting on your personality or looks or by criticizing your work. They do this to remind you that you are worthless and they are doing a favor to you by staying with you. This helps them stay in control of the relationship.

Your Partner Makes You Feel Worthless

5. Your Partner Makes You Feel Guilty:

Another manipulative technique is to make the partner feel guilty. They try to emotionally blackmail their partners by crying and repeatedly reminding them of how they hurt them. This is a passive type of dominance in which the person takes the role of the victim to gain control of the relationship. It can be hard to get out of such a relationship but it is the best thing to do.

Your Partner Makes You Feel Gulity

4. Your Partner Constantly Compares You To An Ex:

If your partner is always comparing you to their ex then it is not a good relationship. Even if they praise you in comparison to their ex it still means that they haven’t completely forgotten about their ex. They might be trying to convince themselves that they love you and it’s better to not wait for the result and get out while you can.

Your Partner Constantly Compares You To An Ex

3. Your Friends And Family Don’t Like Your Partner:

If your friends and family don’t like your partner it’s usually because of a reason. Your close friends know you well and they try to look out for you. If they can see that your partner is not the right fit for you, the least you can do is to consider their point of view. Often in love people ignore the bad points of their partner and don’t understand why their friends don’t like them. Try to be unemotional and look from the point of view of your friends. It might be that your relationship is not as healthy as you thought.

Your Friends And Family Don't Like Your Partner

2. Your Partner Is Physically Or Verbally Abusive:

This is the red danger light flashing kind of a sign. If at any time of point your partner abuses you physically or verbally, get out of there immediately. Don’t try to rationalize about how it only happened once and how it was your fault and how your partner was very angry. No reason is good enough to justify abusive behavior. If you tolerate it once it will only get worse from there.

Your Partner Is Physically Or Verbally Abusive

1. Your Partner Submits To Your Every Whim:

If your partner is the sweetest person on planet earth and accepts everything you do or say then it is a sign of an unhealthy relationship.
