लोग मन्जिल को मुश्किल समझते है,

लोग मन्जिल को मुश्किल समझते है,
हम मुश्किल को मन्जिल समझते है,

बडा फरक है लोगो मे ओर हम मै,
लोग जिन्दगी को दोस्त ओर हम दोस्त को जिन्दगी
समझते है.

आदते अलग हे हमारी दुनिया वालो से,
कम दोस्त रखते हे मगर
लाजवाब रखते है-

क्योंकि बेशक हमारी माला छोटी है-
पर फूल उसमे सारे गुलाब रखते हे…

-अमिताभ बच्चन

Top 20 Universities / Educational Institutions in Asia

Every student who research about joining a university for higher studies wants to know which are the top of the line varsities out there. Well, there is no one single formula or algorithm to create a standard list of such institutions –but some attempts are seen as almost a standard for the rank of an educational institution.

QS World University Ranking is one such attempt. Every year a fresh list of top universities in the world is created taking into account the performance during the previous year as well. For the year 2013-14, following are the TOP 20 ASIAN UNIVERSITIES as per the QS World University Rankings:
National-University-of-Singapore-NUS

National University of Singapore (NUS) [Singapore]
University of Hong Kong [Hong Kong]
The University of Tokyo [Japan]
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology [Hong Kong]
Kyoto University [Japan]
Seoul National University [South Korea]
The Chinese University of Hong Kong [Hong Kong]
Nanyang Technological University (NTU) [Singapore]
Peking University [China]
Tsinghua University [China]
Osaka University [Japan]
KAIST – Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology [South Korea]
Tokyo Institute of Technology [Japan]
Tohoku University [Japan]
National Taiwan University (NTU) [Taiwan]
Fudan University [China]
Nagoya University [Japan]
City University of Hong Kong [Hong Kong]
Pohang University of Science And Technology (POSTECH) [South Korea]
Yonsei University [South Korea]

These rankings are important because students use them while deciding about where to study. Higher ranking institutions get creamy layer students. Indian varsities need to improve a lot if they want to be ranked among world’s top and thereby get best of students from other countries.

Top 10 English Classic Books That People Say They’ve Read But Haven’t!

More than half of these people admitted that they showcase unfinished classic books on their book-shelves. The survey also found that among these “only-to-show-off” books are those classics which have been adapted into films or those which are studied during film making courses.

George-Orwell-1984

A recent survey has unearthed a fact that is not very surprising. The survey has discovered that people usually say they have read this-and-that English classic book –but in reality they haven’t read it.
George Orwell’s 1984 tops the list.

George Orwell’s 1984 tops the list.

Survey respondents revealed that they want to appear as a well-read intellectual person and that it why they lie about reading classics. The survey was done on over 2000 people in London. More than half of these people admitted that they showcase unfinished classic books on their book-shelves. The survey also found that among these “only-to-show-off” books are those classics which have been adapted into films or those which are studied during film making courses.

For sure, nowadays, reading habit is on decline and people perhaps prefer to watch a story made into a movie rather than reading a thick printed volume.

Here is the list of top 10 English classic books that people keep with them just to show off:
1984 (by George Orwell)

With 26% people say aye, this dystopian drama tops the list.
War and Peace (by Leo Tolstoy)

19% people keep it for the sake of it
Great Expectations (by Charles Dickens)

18% people show it off on their shelves but never read it.
The Catcher in the Rye (by JD Salinger)

15% people never finish this book.
A Passage to India (by EM Forster)

12% people just let it be there on the shelf in their drawing room.
The Lord of the Rings (by JRR Tolkien)

11% people will lie about having read this book about which it is said that “the English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and those who are going to read them.”
To Kill a Mocking Bird (by Harper Lee)

10% people decorate their shelves with this book but don’t finish reading it.
Crime and Punishment (by Fyodor Dostoevsky)

8% people show it off
Pride and Prejudice (by Jane Austen)

8% people keep it unfinished (including myself!)
Jane Eyre (by Charlotte Bronte)

5% people have it but don’t read it.

This survey merely confirms what many have been suspecting since long. As respondents also confirm, it only human to be attention seeking and people would lie about umpteenth number of things in order to project themselves in a glorious way.

 

Top English Language Mistakes in India – Part 1

You must avoid making these mistakes while using English language. People in India are so used to with these wrong usage that they don’t realize making these mistakes. But such mistakes show your professional abilities in bad light (especially when you communicate with native English speakers)

Not that ONLY Indians make these mistakes but the truth is that Indians do make a lot of weird and sometimes funny mistakes while using English language.

child-bear1

Let’s and Lets

Let’s is a short form of “let us”. For example, “let’s play football”

Lets is used when permission is involved. For instance, “he lets me use his car”
Repeat and Repeat Again

There is nothing like “repeat again” because the word “repeat” itself means doing something again.

Incorrect: Please repeat your statement again
Correct: Please repeat your statement
Revert and Revert back

Here the problem is similar as to with “repeat and repeat again”… there is nothing like “revert back”

Incorrect: I’ll revert back to you
Correct: I will revert to you
Than and Then

The conjunction “than” is used to compare whereas “then” is an adverb pointing to time.

Incorrect: Sachin Tendulkar runs faster then Dhoni
Correct: Sachin Tendulkar runs faster than Dhoni

Incorrect: He had gone and than she realized
Correct: He had gone and then she realized
Usage of “na” and “to”

North Indians use these two unnecessarily words to pose questions as well as to make statements. For example:

“He is to very smart na”

Here “o” of to is pronounced as in “go” and “a” of na is pronounced as in “jar”. Both to and na are nonsensical and totally unnecessary. Such usage should be avoided. Take another example:

Incorrect: “You are going na?”
Correct: “You are going, aren’t you?”
Use of second form of verb after “did”

Incorrect: I didn’t saw him
Correct: I didn’t see him

Remember, “Did” is always followed by the first form of the verb.
Overuse of “only”

Indians use the word “only” for adding emphasis. This is not exactly wrong except that in India “only” is overused to emphasize. In Hindi, there are words that we use to emphasize something. One such word is “hi” as in “Ramesh ko Nagpur jana hi hai”. English language lacks such words. Perhaps this is the reason, Indians make use “only” to replace “hi”.

For example, Indians tend to translate “main to aisa hi hoon” as “I am like this only”. However the correct form would be:

Incorrect: I am like this only
Correct: This is how I am
Can vs. May

“Can” denotes the ability of doing something whereas “may” denotes asking for the permission for doing something.

Incorrect: Can I take this magazine?
Correct: May I take this magazine?

If you say “Can I take this magazine?” –you are actually questioning your ability to take or lift a magazine. Of course you are strong enough to lift it and therefore you can take it. But when you say “May I take this magazine?” –you are asking for someone’s permission to have the magazine.
Cousin and Cousin Brother/Sister

I must credit Mr. Y.Singh, my English teacher in 9th class, for telling me about the right usage (although, having done my entire schooling in Hindi medium schools, at that time I was least bothered about such nitty-gritty of English.)

In standard English “cousin” is used for both the sexes –brother or sister is not attached with this word. Although, it makes sense to use “cousin brother” or “cousin sister” because these terms are more informative –but, unfortunately, in English these are wrong terms.

Top English Language Mistakes in India – Part 2

Second part in the series mentions a few terms and phrases that are understood only in India. These are either wrong, antiquated or nonconforming to standard English. Therefore, use of these terms or phrases should be avoided.

Prepone

This is perhaps the best example of a word from “Indian English”. In India, it is very common and is understood by every English speaker. However, world at large does not really understand the meaning of this word.

Prepone is used as an antonym of “postpone”. Indians cleverly ask “If something could be postponed; why can’t it be preponed?”. I support the usage of this word because it’s logical and there is a situation that this word can easily convey.

Although, I guess, prepone was recently included in the Oxford English Dictionary –but still it is considered an invalid word by most of the native English speakers.

English language mistakes in India

A month back

To say that something was done before such and such time elapsed –the right word is “ago” and not “back”.

Incorrect: I bought this house two years back
Correct: I bought this house two years ago

Do the needful

Although, there is nothing wrong with this phrase but it is now considered obsolete and therefore it has become part of the archaic English. Its use should be avoided.

Discus about

You just “discuss” something –“discuss about” is wrong because “about” is implicit with the word “discuss”

Incorrect: I want to discuss about your tour
Correct: I want to discuss your tour

Out of station

This phrase is also obsolete –although it used to be of significance during British Rule. The officers East India Company used to be posted to particular “stations”. When they used to be out from there for some work –the officer used to be called “out of station”

Incorrect:
The CEO cannot meet you because he is out of station
Correct: The CEO cannot meet you because he is out of town

Passing out

In India, the meaning of “passing out” is taken as “to graduate” or completing studies from an institution. However, the real meaning of “pass out” is to lose consciousness. So, we should hope, no one actually passes out upon knowing that s/he has successfully completed studies.

*In military context, “pass out” is considered as a valid term for completing training. That’s why we get to see passing out parades.

Incorrect:
He has recently passed out of college
Correct: He has recently graduated from college

Order for

Here, the preposition “for” is unnecessary. You order something –not order for something.

Incorrect: Let’s order for a pizza
Correct: Let’s order a pizza

Kindly revert

First of all, use of the word “kindly” has been antiquated. You should use “please” instead. The second problem with the phrase is that the word “revert” actually means “going back to an earlier state”. For example, if you press a sponge pillow –it reverts to the original shape when the pressure is removed.

Incorrect: Kindly revert at the earliest
Correct: Please reply as soon as possible

Do one thing

Saying this is entirely wrong (especially if you are going to ask the other person to do more than one thing). “Do one thing” is understood only in India. This phrase is somewhat meaningful if you are going to give exactly one instruction. But that’s rarely the case. Therefore it’s better to avoid using it.

Acting pricey

When someone is not paying attention –you tend to say s/he is “acting pricey”. Instead of this you should use “snobbish” or “arrogant”.
