A study on the influence of social networking in India showed that about 68.5 per cent of India's web population accessed social networking sites in February last year , visiting sites on an average of 13 times. An average user spent about 2 hours 10 minutes on various sites. One side it is appreciable that people are more enthusiastic to share what is in their mind and to keep their relationships alive through various sites. Through the social websites lot many have got back old friends and lost relatives. Thanks to the masters who innovated the idea of online platform to care and share.
At the same time one can’t just simply avoid the harms of these sites. For example whether it is a professional or fun type or socializing network, one would share all the personal data on the sites and then from the very next day itself one can see unwanted mails pouring into their inbox as it is very easy to take the email ids from social websites.
The problem would not stop here, from the social networks one can find friends’ friends. And then someone can send emails or photo or links which would be sending by indirect friends. Tagging and commenting on face book is a good example. When one gets the notification that his/her friend is tagged on someone’s photo or wall, they would get tempted to know the context. Then it might take one to some other site and it may ask to login to some other applications which is similar to that of the particular social network home page. And even if one won’t login also, mails from the site would find a place in ones inbox.
Another trouble of social networking is making friends unwantedly. The main victims of the issue are teenagers, the more excited group who generally won’t follow the proverb “look before you leap”. They simply keep on adding all the strangers into their friends list as they interested with number of friends in the list than whether they know the particular person or not which end up in some or other problems for them. Most of them keep their photos and contact details in “Public” which are really risky.
Moreover psychologists have found out that these kids may find the real world boring as in the virtual world things happen much faster, with a click of the mouse and so they will look to more extreme types of behavior to get a kick out of life. At the same time making new friends with strangers may develop their quality of social interaction and communication skills which would result both in negative and positive ways on them.

Summer has started and so as the people also stared looking for holiday destinations. They are busy exploring the new destinations as well as the offers on the holiday packages. With the overwhelming joy, thinking on the fun holidays, most of them becomes careless about the safety measures, giving a sad end to the happy journey.
It's important to take the proper measures in planning a safe holiday trip. Checking the vehicle, using hand-free devices, and getting the proper amount of sleep are a few things which have equal importance with the places to visit and the stay.
There are a few things which one has to remember while planning a trip.
- Sleep at least seven to nine hours the night before the trip
- Stop every two hours and walk around
- Be a defensive driver and watch for fatigued or drunk drivers
- Schedule a routine maintenance check on your car before leaving (tire pressure, oil, battery, windshield wipers, etc.)
- Pack emergency equipment including first aid kits, flashlights, water, and blankets.

Recently only I saw one of my friend’s comments about Kerala… It is not Gods own country...it is dogs on country. Now I also agree with her on her comment on the particular context which forced us to change our concept about the beautiful place.
It was on February 1st 2011, Soumya, 23 year old was raped and killed while she was on her way to home in train. The interesting part was she was travelling on the secure compartment for women- ladies compartment. Travelling alone in the ladies compartment of a Shornur - Ernakulam passenger train, Soumya was pushed out of the running train to the tracks by a male goon and then raped her. She died on Sunday after battling for life for five days in hospital.
This time the police was more active and the CRIMINAL was arrested within a few days… One should appreciate them to take so many efforts to track the culprit.
Whatever happened is happened… The poor girl with lots of dreams about her life is now a memory for everyone. Coming to the present, now one can hear lots of howling from here and there about the issue - the security of women in trains. But when would the new measures be implemented is a question for which “Don’t know” as answer attached with.
One other part of the issue is that the government recognizes the seriousness of matters only when some tragedy happens because of it. Most of the novel changes that have benefitted the public are the outcome of some or other tragedies, especially when it comes to women as well as students. Even the educational loan gained its popularity with easy bank rules since a student committed suicide because of economical issues to continue her study.
After the incident also male passengers boarding the ladies compartment is a regular sight. So my dear sisters better get in to the general compartment while travelling in Kerala… It might be crowded, and you may be stared at or nudged. But it’s safer than the ladies compartment at the end of the train with so called security and no connectivity with the rest of the train.
