Consumerism


    Consumerism is the act of acquiring goods and services that are beyond our needs or financial capabilities for the sake of superficial perception of success. It is the unnecessary and excessive consumption of goods that supposedly prioritises the consumer's needs and strengthens our economy. It has both pros and cons but its cons definitely outweigh its advantages.
        The concept of consumerism has been adopted globally. Conspicuous consumption has been normalised and idolised by the world so much so that it has started to cause an economic crisis, which is the opposite of its ideology. Despite its disadvantages it has been on the rise and even more so in the past few years. 
The cause of consumerism and its increase
  1. Advertisements are one of the main driving forces behind consumerism. They are a key factor in pushing consumers to make decisions. Even if a person is not interested in purchasing any goods or services, advertisements can spark curiosity which leads to impulse buying. If a person has gained interest, then advertisements can encourage a person to make a purchase.
  1. The false perception of success brought by conspicuous consumption has caused people to forget about their needs and indulge in the falsehood. People tend to forget their realities for the fear of missing out, and the joy of catching up with people.
  1. Social media is undoubtedly one of the major factors promoting consumerism. Especially since social media takes so much user data which is used for targeted advertisements. The main purpose of social media is to advertise and earn ad revenue.
  1. Life style inflation is another reason for the steady rise of consumerism in the recent years. It happens when the things that an individual used to perceive as luxury becomes a necessity.
Effects of consumerism 
  1. Consumerism is a huge problem for the environment. It involves using an excessive amount of energy and resources for producing goods that are beyond our needs. It is one of the leading sources of carbon emissions due to processes involved like manufacturing and transporting. It also produces a lot of excess waste, which is concerning for the environment.
  1. It creates issues between people and their financial freedom. The constant influence of social media influences people to keep up with trends and gadgets while risking their own financial stability.
  1. It promotes materialism in our society with creates burden for our societal relations. It is harmful for our society.
How to control it?
  1. The first step that we need to take to become a conscious consumer is to ask ourselves a few questions. When we are about to buy impulsively, we need to ask ourselves, do we really need it or was it a fleeting urge? will it be used more than twice before being forgotten? And did you truly want it or you were influenced into buying it?
  1. If you were influenced into buying it then you need to remember about who is truly benefiting from your purchase. Is it you or the influencers and companies that benefit from your purchase.
  1. We should always prioritise practicality over appearance. 
  1. We need to make small adjustments in our lifestyle and, adopt accordingly to gradually get used to it.
    I would like to remind everyone that sometimes, purchasing goods and services for our happiness is completely fine. The problem arises when we cannot control our urges and our financial stability. We should be able to identify between our wants and needs, and make clear plans to become financially stable. It's a step we have to take for our and our environment's  prosperity.

Child rights

Children are small and tender.They depend on their elders.Every childs future depends on their care facilities  and opportunities he/she gets during his/her childhood.Children should get their rights no matter if a child is rich or poor,is strong or weak,has parents or is an orphan .

Ever child should get the following rights
Right to food.

Right to entertainment and relaxation.
Right to health facilities ,etc.

Children have certain duties as well the duties are as follows

Obeying and listening elders
Loving,caring and teaching younger ones.
Taking care of personal hygiene,etc.

Some children are lucky because they get to perform their duties and they get their rights.While most of the children have to work to earn their daily bread.If a child does not get their rights we should do the following things
We should approach elder for help.
We should approach other agencies for help like VDC(Village development community)or UNICEF(United Nations International Children Emergency fund)etc.

We all should do our best to help all children of the world to get their rights.

Sharks

Shark!It is a word which frightens swimmers and surfers all over the world.Many people think that the sea is full of dangerous creatures like sharks.They think that the sea is full of dangerous creatures like the sharks.They think all sharks attack humans.

But most types of sharks do not attack people.There are more than three hundred and fifty different varieties of sharks.Strangely enough,the most harmless sharks are usually the largest!
The basking shark,the whale shark,the hammered shark,the goblin shark and the megamouth sharks are all harmless.Only about four sharks are very dangerous to humans.They are the great white shark,the tiger shark,the bull shark and white-tip reef shark.The largest known shark lived more than 16 million years ago but is now extinct .It is called the Megalodon shark.It was more than twenty meters in length .The largest shark around today is the whale shark,which is whale shark,which is about twelve meters in length .Sharks have been around for about 400 million years.That means there were sharks in the oceans long before dinosaurs walked on the earth!Sharks are such good survivors that they have changed very little in the last 120 million years.Sharks eat fish, seals and other sea animals .They find their food by sight ,sound and smell .Sharks, like cats,have very good eyesight.They can hunt easily in clear or murky(dark and dirty)water.They can also hear very well in the water and they can smell food hundreds of meters away.

There are only about seventy-five shark attacks in the world each year.And only about ten people are killed by sharks .But each year,people kill millions of sharks because shark meat is considered a delicacy(a dish that everybody enjoys but is generally very expensive) in some countries.

Flowers are of different colors ,types and different shapes and sizes.

I love flowers just not their smell because of the attraction of the mixture of colors in them.My favorite flowers are rose and orchid.A
