How to delete and revoke whatsapp messages you sent by mistake?

Uuuffff…. Galti Se Mistake Dear! Now you no more need to use this word!

Finally, we get relieved from the stress of texting wrong messages to someone or to a wrong person by our silly mistake at Whatsapp.

delete and revoke whatsapp messages you sent by mistake

Yes…Now you are stressfree from texting the wrong message by your silly mistake to someone because you have the option now to delete that wrong sent message to your closed one. We all know that sinking feeling when you accidentally send a screenshot of a conversation, a b*tchy comment about a friend, or ‘cheeky’ selfie to the wrong person on Whatsapp. WhatsApp is adding the ability to delete and revoke messages after you’ve sent them.

Oh the shame, the guilt, the horror!

Several times its happened with us that we text something to the recipient which we feel it may spoil our relationship with that particular person and then again we ask apology from that person for that sent message. Well, fortunately, the brainiacs over at Whatsapp have come to our technological disaster rescue and revolutionized the way we interact on the app forever.

How its act?

WhatsApp has rolled out a new feature that allows users to delete text messages sent out erroneously to the wrong recipient or chat group. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.

“Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake” read a note from the messaging provider.

Here’s how you go about it:

  • Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete.
  • Tap and hold the message. Optionally, tap more messages to delete multiple messages at once.
  • Tap Delete at the top of the screen > Delete for everyone.

The time limit for doing the act…

As handy as this feature is, there are some limitations that are worth bearing in mind such as the time limit. A sender can only delete messages for everyone within seven minutes of sending. Once seven minutes have lapsed, there is no way to delete messages “for everyone”. Messages may only be deleted within seven minutes of being sent. After that, they’re as permanent as any message sent by WhatsApp. It’s a slightly annoying limitation, but then again, we imagine most people will have read the message within seven minutes, so the time limit likely won’t affect too many users.

Why it matters to You?

WhatsApp has more than one billion active monthly users worldwide.

Ever sent a message you instantly regretted? At least one major messaging app is letting you do something about it. Everyone’s been there. Maybe you’re carrying on multiple conversations at the same time, or perhaps you sent something while in a fit of anger. Either way, everyone has sent messages that they wish they could take back, and now WhatsApp users have a way of doing just that.

Conditions for the service…

This feature will only work if both parties have the latest version of WhatsApp installed for iPhone, Windows Phone or Android. If your contacts are slow with updates, then this feature won’t work for you, and you won’t receive any warning that the deletion request was unsuccessful.

The final caveat regarding this feature is that it might not be available for everyone just yet. WABetainfo noted that WhatsApp was being very slow in rolling out this feature. If it hasn’t already been activated, you can try reinstalling the app, but there’s no guarantee that the new feature will be functional. In that case, your only option is to wait, but we imagine WhatsApp will begin speeding up the process.

So, now get ready to reinstall the most friendly usable chatting app of our daily life naming Whatsapp!

Amazon Key – Receive your Amazon package even in your absence

Amazon gifting Santa to their customers! Ops! Not for a day or a week but for forever…….Yes, Amazon brings Santa for us!

In our busy schedule lifestyle, we all now prefer to buy things from online which gives us the freedom of choosing the items as per our wishes by sitting in our home or at our office or while walking in the street and place order by putting the pin code of our residing area. But in this whole process till date, we faced a problem and that is our absence in our residing area for taking the parcel from the delivery person of the particular company.

Now just think for a second that you are as usual busy in your schedule without bothering about to receive your ordered parcel and ‘Santa Claus’ came to your residence and keep silently your parcel in your drawing room without giving you the headache of your strict presence in your home for receiving that ordered package then how will you react to that circumstance after return at home?

Yes, the first time something unusual happening which makes you mesmerized about the home delivery system of packages by Amazon but definitely not by Santa instead by their driver or delivery person.

Several times, it may happen that we are out of home, and the delivery guy is about to reach our home for package delivery and when they arrive at our home and found that the door has been locked and none is being present over their then those delivery guy at anyhow try to contact us either by calling or sending SMS to our mobile number so that they could hand over the package to us within the said time and after get connecting the call with them when we replied them that we are at the office or at the outing then those delivery guys have to return with the package at their company by receiving only another confirm date of the presence of ours so that they could hand over the parcel to us.

Now in these whole long procedure, both the donor and receiver have been undergone with the trouble because not only the company guys facing the trouble but including the customers also who possess the headache of receiving their parcel by making themselves present in the home by keeping aside their other vital tasks. 

Amazon key will deliver your package even in your absence at home…………..

Amazon Key

Amazon, world’s largest e-commerce portal, and the company which introduced drone-based deliveries of packages, a service that allows a driver not only to drop a package off at your doorstep but also to go inside your home — even when you are not there — to make a delivery, has now introduced Amazon Key, which aims to revolutionize the delivery mechanism.

With Amazon Key, you can allow delivery guys inside your home, even if there is no one present at your home!

Amazon completes 1st drone delivery

Cities go all out in bid for new Amazon headquarters

On a first glance, this may seem blasphemous to say the least, but if we understand how it works, and it’s implications for other services, then we will find that the concept is wonderful.

Even magical to some extent.

Now, the only question is.. Will netizens and online shoppers accept this new system?

Cost of Amazon Key: The Mesmerised Concept Of Delivery

The service is called Amazon Key and launches November 8 for Prime members. So, you can allow the delivery personnel to enter your home, and deliver the package. And yes, it is safe as well. Amazon Key contains Amazon Key In-Home Kit, which costs $249.99 or Rs 16,000/- and solves all your problem related to deliveries.

The in-home delivery service will come at no additional cost for the 85 million Amazon Prime subscribers, after they purchase the Amazon Key In-Home Kit, starting at $249.99, which includes the new Amazon Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock.The service can give people “peace of mind” in knowing that their orders “are waiting for them when they walk through their doors.”

How its work?

  •  Amazon Key works by alerting customers by phone when a driver arrives at their home and scans their package. That triggers a signal to the Amazon Cloud that verifies the driver, and then the Amazon Cloud unlocks a smart lock on the front door.
  • Amazon will authorize the delivery and will turn on the camera which will be installed in your home. 
  •  The delivery guy will now open your home because Amazon has authorized it.
  • Meanwhile, a camera inside the home begins recording, and customers can watch the delivery live or watch the video later and get confirmation of the delivery.When the delivery guy leaves, the door is locked again. Refer this video also to know more about how it works.

Is it safe to allow some stranger in our home during our absence?

Observers and analysts have slammed Amazon for introducing this ‘weird’ delivery mechanism, as they claim it can endanger the whole house, and things can get stolen.,

“But we’re opening a whole can of worms by allowing a human inside our homes when we aren’t there: What if he slips and falls? What if Amazon says the package was delivered but it wasn’t? What if the dog gets out?”

For all these queries Amazon focused on many aspects like,

  • “Amazon is really focused on safety and security for all of our customers across the board,” he said. “These drivers are the same drivers that you know and trust to deliver your Amazon packages today. They’re background checked, and they are approved to deliver for Amazon.”
  • Larsen acknowledged the cybersecurity concerns some customers may raise when using technology that controls access into their home, saying “all of the devices are encrypted.”
  • “The data traveling between the devices and the Amazon Cloud is encrypted,” he said, adding that Amazon has an “over-the-air update system so we can update all of the devices if we need to.”
  • Amazon Key users have the option to turn off the smart lock whenever they choose, requiring a physical key for entry.
  • In addition to delivery services, people can use Amazon Key to remotely allow friends or family members to enter their homes without a key. Amazon announced that it hopes to use the new technology to let service providers, such as housekeepers and dog walkers, have access to homes.

Norms for the delivery driver

Amazon says the delivery driver will not be given an access code or key. The service isn’t just for deliveries. Amazon says you can also use it to let family and friends into your house when you’re not home. And it will work for certain services like home cleaners, pet sitters, and dog walkers.

It’s not the first major retailer to experiment with remote delivery access.

Last month, Walmart announced that it was testing a service that allows a delivery driver from the startup delivery into your home, mostly for groceries. It will even give the delivery person access to your refrigerator. In the Walmart service, the driver gets a one-time passcode for a smart lock, and you can watch the delivery on security cameras.

Conditions for Amazon Key

Now, this concept is so cool, that it can be easily implemented for other service providers as well, such as home cleaners, maids, pet sitters and more. Amazon Home Services, the division where service providers enlist their services would be soon combined with Amazon Key. On the other hand, investors have given this new concept a green signal and explain that this is as safe as hiring Uber for a cab or Airbnb for a room.

The crucial aspect here is the authorization, which Amazon provides, and the camera which allows you to witness the whole process.

Only few cities in US are right now eligible for this new Amazon Key powered deliveries right now.

So don’t lose hope friends, that you couldn’t explore this new amazing facility right now but hopefully soon we all get this magical Amazon key for our daily online usage of shopping.

Which Accounts are exempt from linking Aadhaar to bank accounts?

What is need of link Aadhar to the bank account?

The Reserve Bank of India on Saturday issued a clarification, saying linking of Aadhaar with bank accounts was mandatory in cases under the prevention of money-laundering rules. The central bank was responding to news reports that quoted an RTI reply on linking the 12-digit biometric number with accounts by December 31.

Link Aadhaar to Bank

On 14 October, a fresh petition was filed in the Supreme Court challenging the government’s decision to link bank accounts and mobile phones to the 12-digit unique identity number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI).

Some news items have appeared in a section of the media quoting a reply to an RTI application that Aadhaar number linkage with bank accounts is not mandatory. “The Reserve Bank clarifies that, in applicable cases, linkage of Aadhaar number to the bank account is mandatory under the Prevention of Money -laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017 published in the Official Gazette on June 1, 2017. These Rules have statutory force and, as such, banks have to implement them without awaiting further instructions,” the RBI said.

The government had notified under PMLA that every bank account should be linked to Aadhaar by 31 December, failing which the accounts will become inoperative.

Should you wait for the Supreme Court ruling then?
Considering that the rule to make Aadhaar mandatory for opening new accounts has already been enforced by banks following the finance ministry directive, it would appear that as per current situation, existing account holders will not be given an exemption. 

How to Link Aadhaar Card to Bank Account – Online/Offline?

Linking Aadhaar Card with Bank Account via Online & Offline Mode | Updation of Aadhaar details to Bank Account for LPG Subsidy

Our Government is encouraging people to update Aadhaar card details with their respective bank accounts. People often get confused with the process of Linking Aadhaar card with the bank account. The process is actually quite easy and can be completed easily. I will be explaining the methods that will be applicable to almost all Banks. No matter if your Bank is State bank of India(SBI), Punjab National Bank(PNB), Oriental Bank of Commerce(OBC), HDFC, ICICI, Canara, Axis Bank or any other. 

Linking Aadhaar Card with Bank Account :

This can be done in following two ways :

OR

 This is an extremely easy method but it is important that you have availed the internet banking facility as well as you need to make sure that your Bank is giving this facility

What exemption given to accounts?

Exemption given only to small accounts. Not all types of bank accounts will become un-operational if they are not linked with Aadhaar before the deadline. Small accounts are exempt from this directive as these can be opened even without Aadhaar.
A small account is a bank savings account where:
1. The aggregate of all credits in a financial year does not exceed Rs 1 lakh;
2. The aggregate of all withdrawals and transfers in a month does not exceed Rs 10, 000;
3.  . The balance at any point of time does not exceed Rs 50, 000. 

Why its become mandatory?

The government in Budget 2017 had already mandated seeding of Aadhaar number with Permanent Account Number to avoid individuals using multiple PANs to evade taxes.

The Reserve Bank clarifies that, in applicable cases, linkage of Aadhaar number to bank account is mandatory under the Prevention of Money -laundering (Maintenance of Records). Rules, 2005, mandated quoting of Aadhaar along with PAN or Form 60 by individuals, companies and partnership firms for all financial transactions of Rs 50,000 or above.

This year in June, the government had made Aadhaar mandatory for opening bank accounts as well as for any financial transaction of Rs 50,000 and above.

“Existing bank account holders have been asked to furnish the Aadhaar number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) by December 31, 2017, failing which the account will cease to be operational,” the government notification had said. According to reports, the RBI had not issued any notification for linking of Aadhaar number with the customers’ bank account.

In RTI reply, RBI was quoted as saying: “The Government has issued a Gazette Notification GSR 538(E) dated 1 June 2017 regarding Prevention of Money laundering (Maintenance of Records) Second Amendment Rules, 2017, inter-alia, making furnishing of Aadhaar (for those individuals who are eligible to be enrolled for Aadhaar) and permanent number (PAN) mandatory for opening a bank account. It may be noted that Reserve Bank has not yet issued an instruction in this regard.”

The report also revealed that the central bank has not even filed any petition with the Supreme Court on seeking explicit permission of linking the two said documents. “RBI has not filed any petition with the Supreme Court,” the RBI said in response to the query. 

Income Tax Department Live Chat Online Helpline – Solve your doubts instantly

The Income Tax Department has taken yet another initiative to help the taxpayers with their basic queries about the tax filings. The Department has launched an ‘online chat’ service to answer the taxpayers’ questions related to income tax.

On the main website of the Income Tax, a window has been hosted by an icon stating ‘Live Chat Online – ask your query.’ This “Live Chat” window will take questions on tax matters from Monday to Friday between 10 a.m and 5 p.m.

10639611_804352842950599_8609516485440023381_n

Once you click on the icon, it will take you to a new window where you will have to write your name, email ID and query to start the chat.  

The Income Tax department launched an app that allows entities track Tax Deducted at Source (TDS), pay taxes and apply for Permanent Account Number (PAN).

It will also help people link their 12-digit biometric identifier Aadhaar with PAN card. The mobile app Aaykar Setu, launched by finance minister Arun Jaitley, will be available on Android phones.

This is a very important step forward by the CBDT ( Central Board of Direct Taxes) and the principle reason being technology as a very powerful tool becomes an enabler. With the app most of the work the assessee can discharge without any external help sitting at home, the minister said.

Last year, the I-T department had set up a newly dedicated directorate within its establishment to monitor and resolve grievances of taxpayers.

How to download this app?

The new initiative is a step by the I-T department to directly communicate with the taxpayers on a range of multiple informative and useful tax services aimed at providing tax information at their fingertips.

This is the first mobile app by the CBDT and can be downloaded by giving missed calls to 7306525252.

A window has been hosted on the main page of the department’s website www.incometaxindia.gov.in — with a prominent icon stating ‘Live Chat Online- ask your query’.
The module compiles various tax tools, live chat facility, dynamic updates, and important links to various processes within the I-T department in a single module.

The taxpayers will also be able to receive regular updates regarding important tax dates, forms, and notifications on mobile numbers registered with the department.

All taxpayers who wish to receive such SMS alerts are advised to register their mobile numbers in the Aaykar Setu module.

How this app will act?

The app is in the series of actions taken by the Central Board of Direct Taxes to provide better taxpayer services and reduce grievances.

#Taxpayers can seek answers to their basic questions and doubts regarding direct taxing issues by means of the online chat option available on the Income Tax department’s official website.

#“A team of experts from the department and independent tax practitioners has been deputed to answer the general queries of a taxpayer. The first-time initiative is aimed to enhance taxpayer services in the country,” an Income Tax officer told PTI.

#The officer added that other features would be added to the online chat system based on the feedback the department receives.

#The officer further said that an option has also been provided to the taxpayer for emailing the entire chat to their IDS for future reference.

#Displayed on the main page of the official Income Tax website, users can simply click the icon marked ‘Live Chat Online- ask your query’ to log on to the chat room page. To enter the ‘chat room’ users are only required to enter their email id after which they can ask questions as a guest.

#The chatting option comes with a disclaimer: “The replies are based on the opinion of the expert and in no manner it should be interpreted as the clarification by the income-tax department on any matter.”

What is the aim behind this step?

This is a very important step forward by the CBDT and the principle reason being technology as a very powerful tool becomes an enabler. With the app most of the work the assessee can discharge without any external help sitting at home,” the minister said.

The app is in the series of actions taken by the Central Board of Direct Taxes to provide better taxpayer services and reduce grievances.

The Central Board of Direct Taxes or CBDT, the apex policy-making body of the tax department, recently decided to enlarge the ambit of the 2006 Tax Return Preparer Scheme (TRPS) by making the service “digital” and covering all the 708 districts of the country.

A senior official working on the project reportedly said the aim was to ensure hassle-free and ‘from home’ tax filing service to assessees without they taking pains to go to a Chartered Accountant or a person who has expertise in filing tax returns.

Apart from the online facility, the department is also planning to help taxpayers on the ground. Earlier this month, the Income Tax Department proposed to appoint 7,600 additional experts to assist small taxpayers in filing ITR.

How the app become helpful?

#“The app reduces the physical interface between assessing officer (AO) and assessees. Physical interface has many unintended consequences it is time-consuming and can lead to improprieties,” Jaitley said.

#The tax department, he said, has endeavored to reduce interface and a lot of it has already happened.

#“It has become far more convenient. Secondly, it also makes compliance far easier.”

#“It also helps us in improving the image of the department. For the reason that one of the not so acceptable alibis given by those who don’t comply is we don’t comply because of the harassment that compliance involves. Not that this reason has much reason in it, but today this reason gets eliminated more the interface is reduced,” he said.

#Jaitley said an external audit must be done to see how much of the interface has been reduced and which are the other areas where it can be done.

#”The replies are based on the opinion of the expert and in no manner it should be interpreted as the clarification by the Income Tax Department on any matter,” it says.

What did psychologists say about the selfies?

Psychology about Selfie

Selfie is a part of a trend of performing on social media. People try to portray the life they want others to see, and they create lots of photographic evidence of themselves being fun and interesting. Selfies are often saying, “I was here,” “I’m attractive,” or “I’m interesting and successful.”

selfie-1022967_1920

The act of taking a selfie could make people self-conscious and more aware of how others view them. This may occur because the act forces us to focus on ourselves, much like looking in the mirror. When we become self-aware, we also become more sensitive to the extent to which we are living up to social standards and norms. If you’re walking down the street minding your own business and then notice someone on the street corner staring at you, you are likely to become more aware of your appearance and actions and more concerned with how that person is judging you. This awareness of how others might be judging us or reacting to us is called “social sensitivity.” Online audiences can have the same effect on us as offline audiences. Consistent with this idea, studies have shown that posting information about oneself on social media is associated with more social sensitivity.

Selfies are like self-validations “hey, I’m important”. It’s obsessive. Everyone wants to brag how awesome their life is. It’s like a competition. No one wants to feel less important. No wonder, teenage depression is on the rise. 

How it affects our self-esteem?

Human beings have a natural tendency to follow the gaze of others, and we have been coached since birth to follow arrows directing us to where we should be looking/going.

Taking and sharing selfies may also affect self-esteem. Increased self-awareness generally tends to lower self-esteem, suggesting that taking selfies should make us feel worse about ourselves. However, presenting ourselves to others in a desirable manner tends to increase our self-esteem.This suggests that the act of taking a selfie might reduce self-esteem, but the act of sharing it might increase self-esteem.

Researchers wanted to see how both the act of taking a selfie and the act of sharing that selfie with others affected social sensitivity and self-esteem.

Self-esteem was measured by examining the physical size of participants’ signatures. People with lower self-esteem tend to write smaller signatures. So the researchers asked participants to sign their own names with a pen both before and after the experimental manipulation. Any change in the size of the participant’s signature would indicate a change in self-esteem caused by the photo-taking and/or sharing.

The researchers also found that participants in the selfie condition who merely saved their photo showed a larger reduction in self-esteem from the start of the experiment, as compared to those who shared their selfies on social media. This suggests that the act of taking a selfie can make us feel worse about ourselves, due to the increased focus on the self. However, sharing it with others largely improve this effect. Perhaps this is due to the expectation that others will like and approve of the selfie. The effects in this study might have been even larger if participants also received feedback on social media, such as Facebook likes. On the other hand, a lack of positive feedback could send self-esteem plummeting further.

Why people posting explicit images of themselves on social media?

Only people who rely solely on other people’s opinion of them for ‘validation’ would do this, and they’ll use any ‘hook’ designed to incite a positive response, inciting positive sexual reactions a method known to ‘work’, especially for males is just one tactic.

The more pictures you post of yourself promoting a certain identity buff, sexy, adventurous, studious, funny, daring, etc. the more likely it is that others will endorse this identity of you.

There are many other methods, such as ‘declarations of value’ saying how much ‘better’ one is than ‘others’, or insinuating the same though tone or grammar, in any case, those who do this will continue until they (a) the negative response outweighs the positive response, (b) that tactic doesn’t ‘work’ anymore no response, or (c) until they get a sense of, or ability to judge, their own self-worth.

Facebook became not just a social network but a means of proving one’s social reach. Posed group photographs, tagged pictures and friend counts were signifiers of social net worth, and a sign of healthy participation in the digital world. As Facebook rose to prominence, so did its model of what it meant to interact online. The subject of MySpace bathroom selfie with its tableaux of bathroom counter mirror, face, and upper body always looked alone. Selfies were for people without friends, the savvy moved on to more advanced networks.

New Software has also contributed to the selfie renaissance. For teenage social media users, who generally prefer on-the-go mobile application, like Instagram and Snapchat, the self is the message and the selfie is the medium.

 The psychology of selfie

People seek attention and don’t get enough from their real life, it’s caused by a doubt in self-value. Just like other animals, humans also equate size with dominance and submission.

If you hold your camera straight out, you’ll take a selfie that accurately represents what you really look like. But what if you hold the camera above or below face level? When you take a selfie from above, you make the face and eyes look larger, so you appear shorter and younger. And if you photograph yourself from below, you emphasize your jaw, making yourself look taller and more dominant. People would manipulate camera angle when taking selfies as an impression management strategy. 

model-395574_1920

Two processes are at play, intersexual attraction, and intrasexual competition.  Intersexual attraction refers to the set of strategies that people use to arouse the interest of members of the opposite sex. In intrasexual competition with each other as they vie for the ladies’ attention.

Women are attracted to men who dominate other men, but they also expect those same men to be supportive toward their spouses. Likewise, women rely more on social influence than physical size or strength to establish their position in the pecking order.

People will manipulate the camera angle of their selfies depending on their intended audience. In one study, they examined self-portraits posted by men and women on internet dating and professional networking sites. In this case, the internet dating sites were viewed as contexts for intersexual attraction, and the professional network sites as contexts for intrasexual competition.

Specifically, they made the following predictions:

  • Men will take selfies from below when their audience is other men (to show dominance).
  • Men will take selfies straight on when their audience is women (to show supportiveness).
  • Women will take selfies from above when their audience is men (to show submission).
  • Women will take selfies straight on when their audience is other women (to show supportiveness).

So, people really do manipulate the camera angle of selfies to create an impression of dominance or submission. But are other people actually influenced by camera angle? To explore this question, the researchers took pictures of men and women, each from all three camera angles above, straight on, and below.

Another set of participants then viewed these photos and rated them on a number of characteristics related to dominance and submission. They also rated the attractiveness and other physical characteristics of the person in each photo. As predicted, the men were perceived as taller and rated as more dominant and attractive when the camera angle was from below. And conversely, the women were perceived as younger and rated as more submissive and attractive when the camera angle was from above.

These results show that people really do manipulate their perceived height to indicate dominance or submission. Furthermore, people actually are influenced by these attempts at impression management. But what’s the take-home message?

Why lonely personalities has the addiction of selfie?

Those who constantly take pictures of themselves are more likely to be lonely, scientists warn. However, they are also more likely to be vain and attention-seeking too.Constant self-snappers are also more likely to be vain and attention-seeking too, a study revealed. 

Researchers in Thailand assessed the personal habits of 300 students and looked at how often they took pictures of themselves. The participants, mostly females aged between 21 and 24, were interviewed to see if they had narcissism, attention-seeking, self-centered behavior or loneliness personality traits.

A vast majority spent more than 50 percent of their spare time on either their mobile phone or scouring the internet, they found. Concerning the relationship between selfie-liking and the control variables, the analysis showed that selfie-liking was positively associated with the intensity of social media us.

Experts believe both men and women who have lonely personalities tend to take more selfies for approval from other people. Individuals with higher degrees of loneliness tend to report selfie-liking to a greater extent.

The lead researcher said, ‘Not only do individuals who become obsessed with taking selfies tend to feel that their personal lives and psychological well-being are damaged, but they may feel that relationship qualities with others are also impaired.
‘Taking selfies allows individuals to control what other people see in the photos, it is not surprising that those who exhibit these narcissistic characteristics tend to like selfies because it helps them achieve this personal goal.

While many people consider taking selfies to be an enjoyable activity, those who take selfies need to concern themselves with the unhealthy behaviors that might be associated with this activity as well. Some experts have argued that selfie-taking behavior can be linked to mental illness.

However, psychologists suggest that it is not an addiction but a symptom of body dysmorphic disorder a form of anxiety.This could be the reason why individuals who like to take selfies tend to focus too much on themselves and express less concern about others.

Caution for both men and women

Here’s the advice for men: If you’re trying to impress other men in a professional context, take your selfies from below. This will signal your dominance. But if you’re trying to impress women in a romantic context, take your selfies straight on. This will show your supportiveness.

And here’s the advice for women: If you’re trying to impress other women in a professional context, take your selfies straight on. This will demonstrate your social intelligence. But if you’re trying to impress men in a romantic context, take your selfies from above. This will make you look younger and more attractive.

Despite our modern beliefs about gender equality, the dynamics of intersexual attraction and intrasexual competition are still deeply ingrained within us. However, this doesn’t mean we’re powerless pawns of our evolutionary past. Rather, it means that if we understand how these dynamics work, we gain power over them and can wield them to our own advantage.

Link Aadhaar to Bank

Need of linking Aadhar with Phone………..

The government had announced that all mobile subscribers, including those having pre-paid SIM cards, to have their phone number linked to Aadhar without fail. There are over 100 crore mobile subscribers in India.
The government of India is expanding the scope of Aadhar linkage.The government has already mandated quoting of Aadhaar, the 12-digit Unique Identity Number (UID) issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India), for the filing of income tax returns (ITRs) or applying for Permanent Account Number (PAN). All SIMs (mobile phone numbers) not linked with Aadhaar will be deactivated after February 2018, according to a report by news agency Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) citing informed sources.

Aadhaar Linking to Mobile Phones online

 

The government is moving ahead with linking of Aadhaar with mobile SIM cards, the agency further said. That means mobile phone service users will have to link their Aadhar with mobile numbers. Telecom companies had been earlier instructing users to start the process of linking Aadhaar card with phone numbers

 Sources told news agency IANS that linking of Aadhaar and mobile is being done as per the orders of the Supreme Court passed in February this year in the Lokniti foundation case and all SIM cards have to be verified with Aadhaar within a year from the date of judgement, with all unlinked phones to be deactivated thereafter (after February 2018).

Alert from telecom operators……….

Many Telecom Operators Like Airtel Bharti &Vodafone & IDEA & BSNL is Sending The Below Message to Link Aadhaar Card With Mobile Number

‘Sarkari Nirdeshanusar, Apke Mobile Number Ko Aadhar Card Se Jodna Aavashyak Hai. Aadhaar Link Karne Ke Liye, Nazdeeki Airtel Retailer se Sampark Karein’ …………

If you had purchased SIM by other documents like id proofs like license, voter id etc, you will have to verify your phone SIM again using Aadhaar Card number.

  Vodafone India said: “Aadhaar based re-verification is to be done only once on a number.

What kind of qualities in women attract men?

qualities in women attract men

Men Are Attracted to Valuable Women. Men fall in love with women through 7 main stages, which are Appreciation – Infatuation- The Attraction- Impression- Conviction- Reaffirmation- “I Love You”.

But, appearance is the first thing that attracts men. Then, men will steadily get to know the woman, mainly the personalities of her. There’s something so unbelievably sexy about a confident smart woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. So, somehow it can be said that the way men fall in love is from outside to inside.

Look at yourself as a color. You may not be everybody’s favorite color but one day you will meet someone who needs you to complete their picture.

portrait-2674656_1920

For immediate attraction to men or women, there are 4 S’s in any situation…

  • Straight – Have the confidence to stand up straight.
  •  Smile – Show an enjoyment of life and welcome attention.
  • Style – Show something unique.
  •  Something – Every person has something they are particularly attracted to. Is it red hair, tallness, sexy shoes, spicy smell or geeky glasses? That is the mystery.

What attracts a man to a woman?…………

Face………. Appearance is the first thing that attracts men. She should be cute. The face is the most defining feature of Women, especially when they have big beautiful eyes. I don’t mean she should look cute, but be cute on the inside. She should be affectionate, funny, flirtatious, mushy and should make her man want to just hold her in his arms and never let go. But they still love that face, the spots, the freckles and every little imperfection on it. Maybe beautiful eyes, a crooked nose or deep dimples. They can find something so weird in the face, so beautiful, it blows your mind.

Curves………. Men love curves. they are programmed to respond to the softness of a woman’s body and demeanor in this sharp-edged world, and contrary to popular belief they are very much in love with the bothering love handles or embarrassing thighs. They don’t judge when they see curves.

Smile………. The smile is the best painkiller in life. Dealmaker. The ability to make another person laugh is a gift. That gift is indeed one of the most prized qualities in a woman that a man seeks. It fills him with happiness and energy. Being witty emphasizes quick thinking capabilities, which in turn alludes to intelligence. If you ever find a guy out of your league, just flash a smile, he will respond. Every man responds to a genuine smile. And again, not looking for a celebrity here. Just flash those gorgeous gems and see the magic. The smile is the only thing that attracts men to women and women to man. The smile is the most beautiful thing we are blessed with unless it is unbiased.

Happy ………… By the time a man is 25 or so, he should know that a happy girlfriend/wife is important. If it takes too much effort to keep a woman happy, because that’s not her natural state, many men will move on. They want a girlfriend, not another job. A happy woman is an amazing sight to see. The character trait of being happy is incredibly attractive. People, in general, are put off by melancholy and angst. A happy person is an attractive person because people want to be around them. This is true for both men and women.

Successful woman ……….. I think success is attractive to both sexes. There are many advantages but as far as relationships go, if a woman is busy and good at what she does, she will be happier and that helps at home too. This is provided she is also wise enough to not take out any work-related frustrations on her man but usually, the successful ones realize this. So it’s a good thing all around. Success, yes. As long as it is accompanied by confidence.

With success comes confidence, control, ambition. Those are all very attractive if you can handle them. I know men that portray confidence, success, power, but they surround themselves with smaller, weaker personalities. The same thing would happen with a successful woman in a relationship. An insecure guy wouldn’t be able to handle that, because they are not that, whether they pretend to be or not.

Directness ………….. Men really like women who mean what they say. Are you interested? Say it. Are you not interested? Say it. Saying no when you mean yes and saying yes when you are not fully interested removes any sort of trustworthiness that women have. Seriously, no games. Say what you mean. Like you, men don’t like to be played with.

Confident men use humor to see if she can be fun if she has a friendly, open-minded and welcoming personality. He will sexualize in his tone indirectly and directly to see if she is his equal but also if she can have fun.

Integrity ………….. If she is honest and has a nice soul, she is definitely a beautiful woman. Lying is one thing which neither gender likes it. So being truthful n honest makes a woman come across as a potential partner.

Physical attractiveness………. Men like beautiful and sexy women. Men are attracted to youthfulness. However, beauty and sexiness depend upon the way a woman carries herself. Elegance plays a huge role in enhancing everything about a woman. Of course, body type, fragrance, dress etc come into play.

 Men love it women who are open and honest about their desires and turnoffs. Physically, Women have beautiful bodies as long as they take care if it, and have good hygiene. It is usually in their art, to be beautiful. Every Women is beautiful and unique. I look more for the personal character traits, then the physical traits, but they usually follow each other equally.

Cleopatra was no hot stuff. She was an average looking woman but she knew the ways of men and understood what they valued the most. She had the knowledge and skill to seduce men and keep men’s attention. She was surrounded by beautiful women but men were drawn to her.

Imperfections ………….. Makeup is not necessary I have found women who can make me be amazed at how such a beautiful sculpture created by an architect for Cytherea as a gesture of her elegance could be living. The style is also a major thing I notice. Men like a woman who has her own look and is comfortable in the clothes she wears.

Have to stress the point again, because we are so much obsessed with the cover girls that we forget being organic is being sexy. Almost every guy agrees too much makeup is a turn-off. They want to see some natural beauty in you. The mole is absolutely okay, so is the buck teeth. They tend to associate you with your marks and scars, and it makes you uniquely attractive to them and distinguishes you from rest of the crowd.

There’s probably some science behind why some faces are considered beautiful, but again, I think this is subjective. I personally like women who look unique and are comfortable in their own skin.

Composure…………Men love nothing more than a woman who can handle situations calmly. No erratic behavior. No irritability. No yelling. No crazy stuff. I am not denying that some men are irrational. However, those irrational people are not attractive. When a person knows that they’re not always right and are willing to reason, the attractiveness quadruples.

Quirks ……………Every person has a quirk. And your quirk may make you more adorable. She should understand men. Men love being the knight in shining armor. She should understand that men love acting tough in front of their girls. Knows how to flirt/banter and women who can comfortably tease them and display a good sense of humor.

Optimism………. A woman who knows how to be positive in adverse situations is definitely worth being with every single moment. For she will push her man to do his best throughout his life.

Loyalty………….. This counts the most. Everything is acceptable but for example, if you answered with “yes I did” to his “Did you have sex with him?” he’ll be heartbroken for sure. Just be loyal, to your friends, to your family, to your man and all to those who matter. And don’t be over possessive, rude, ignorant. Also, avoid gossips. 

Crazy and smart……….. Like one hundred percent full on retarded. She should make us do things we’d never even consider in our wildest dreams. She should get both of us to do stupid, incredibly stupid things just for the thrill of the deed and of being together. We should be able to have meaningful discussions, talk about the global political scenario, the world economy, climatic change, war, poverty, hunger, life, and death.

Understanding……….. This is very important if you want to attract men. Here I’m talking about men and not boys. You must never judge too early whatever might be the situation. 

Acceptance ………..I won’t say all women are fault finders and criticizing all the time, but too many out there to do. Isn’t afraid to accept her mistake and change her mind. They don’t compare. A non-judgemental, non-messy partner, is what any guy desires.

Femininity……………  Men Are Attracted to Feminine Energy. The soft voice. The softer touch. Makes sure she’s heard. One of the biggest mistakes most women do is they show a lack of feminity, in that they are emotional cold, they are up to their ass with this bullshit mainstream romance in hiding their intent to the man they desire.
Don’t ever think he isn’t also talking to other women to decide who shows intent to him, vulnerability to him, and that includes not just feelings but her sexuality in the tone of voice, in behavior. It will be a deciding factor no matter.

Independence…………. An independent person is attractive because there is no love lost when each of them has to do their own stuff. There is no compulsion to do everything together. There is no need for constant pampering. A relationship is a teamwork. Each needs to know how to do their own work independently in order to play. Has an informed opinion even if it doesn’t match mine.

Resemble his mom……….. If a man found there is a girl who is similar to his mom, he would rather give up the former. Maybe because right from the childhood they saw their moms as an epitome of a perfect woman, that they desire women similar to them.

Caring ………… She certainly should be considerate of other’s feelings. If ever someone is in trouble and if she helps that person out without expecting anything in return, that’s really commendable.

Behaviour…………. The most important. How you treat people around you, your opinions and your behavior matter to them. Treating him respectfully and sweetly, if not flirting at the first conversation, makes a very good impression upon them. So if you like the guy, just don’t come into a vulgar mode. Most probably he will run far and never come back.

Kindness…………. I find kindness more attractive than mere beauty. Absolutely! Looks is what makes men attracted, but the kindness is what makes us remains. It is one of the traits that make someone immensely attractive to any guy for her pleasant company.

In my opinion, beauty is a too common trait among women. I find all women beautiful. I find their smiles all attractive. And with relatively little effort, women with more modest look can improve their appearance amazingly. But kindness is a deeper trait of the personality of the woman. It is pleasant. It’s more scarce than beauty I think. It is refreshing to be around a kind woman.

                        Frankly, women are still unsure what attracts men to them. Hot bodies and gorgeous faces are in, but getting the right man is still a difficult task at hand. If a woman has all these traits, I guess no man would ever stray and every man will love his woman passionately.

Sometimes none of the above. Sometimes they just like a girl, without rhyme or reason. The world stops for him when he sees the girl, and they’re not going to trade that for anything in the whole wide world. This is something completely unique to guys only.

“Men Are Attracted to Women Who Connect With Their Hearts!”  

 

Yes, it is true love and it can happen!

Nelson, 25 years old the final year student of Medical, has an intense affection for his beautiful 22 years old friend Justine, pursuing her management. He always finds the excuse to stay with her even he would go to the extent of creating situations so that he could be with her as long as possible.

“One day we will never have to say goodbye, the only goodnight!”

a-couple-in-love-2683606_1920

His all acts don’t surprise Justine, as he treated her like a precious diamond or a delicate doll. The care and the gentleness with which he handles her would melt her heart. His subtle hints like talking about family and kids were enough for her to read his mind. As a man talks about kids only with his love whom he loves because he wants his kids to look alike her as he knows only she will be a great mom to his kid.

“I only want two things in this world,

I want you and I want Us!”

Therewith time they gelled decently. Nelson completed his interns and now he has been connected with a private hospital and Justine also doing good in a multinational company. Now the couple is planning for their marriage but Justine’s parents have some issue in regard of groom’s caste and community.

Nelson when came to know about Justine’s parent’s non-acceptance then he started to plan everything rather give up on her when Justine started freaking out because guys have the solution to all the problems when it comes to living with their love. He cannot imagine his life without her. He would create such a scenario that no one would get a hint about their relation, till their names had been beautifully scribbled on the wedding invitation.

“I love you more than words can show

I think about you more than

you could ever know,

until forever this will be true

because there is no one

I would ever love the way

I Love You!”

When dreams shattered………….

They spent their days happily. Abruptly one day she developed a skin disease. Slowly Justine started to lose her beauty. She lost the pigment from certain areas of her face and body, causing whitish patches, often with no clear cause, which greatly reduced her self-confidence and self-image. She would no longer think of the good things in her life and all she would think to be about this disease she unluckily has. The disease itself would not ruin her life as much as she herself would ruin it thinking about it. Nelson realized that Justine not only lost her self-confidence also she lost the desire for alive.

She tried to skip from her husband at bed because of her growing ugliness. Nelson afraid to lose her for something as sex and he respects her too much to see her naked. For him, she would have to initiate the talk if she wants to have it if it happens otherwise, its an alert.

He kissed on her forehead more than her lips, again he would never ask her to sleep with him against her wish because he respects her decision and wouldn’t stop loving her even if she says NO for intimacy. Love is accepting a person with all their failures, stupidity, ugly points. Love is seeing perfection in every imperfection.

Nelson: I LOVE YOU!

I’m who I’m because of you!

You are every reason, every hope

And every dream I’ve ever had,

And no matter what happens

To us in the future.

Every day we are together

Is the greatest day of my life.

I’ll always be yours!”

When responsibilities abolish the pain……….

Destiny once again torturous with them and on a fine day while returning from office to home he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. The incident completely turned Justine’s life.

For Justine now the whole world is around her adorable husband Nelson. She now even forgets about her own skin disease which made her ugly and agonized so much that she lost the urge to live the life.

Her husband’s blindness engrossed her life so much that since morning to night, she stayed beside him for his every small basic need of daily life so that her husband never felt for a second also that he had lost his vision and with time, Nelson also became completely dependent on his wife.

She never let a mere disease hamper or have an effect on the aspirations of her life. She never let such a situation affect her emotionally or in any manner whatsoever. She doesn’t just sit and rue over the fact that what life has done this to her.

Nelson never ever for a moment seen her sad or unhappy. She told him how she had faced difficulties and unpleasant situations before. Now in facts, she was entertaining and hilarious at times. She manages all the things of her life very well even in caring their relationships also.

“Justine: I love you!

Nelson: I love you too!

Justine: Prove it, shout it to the world.

Nelson: ‘Whispers in-ear’ I Love You!

Justine: Why did you whisper it to me?

Nelson: Because you are my world!”

Everything is predestined………

Despite her gradual ugliness their married life continued as usual because for Justine her blind husband didn’t aware about her ugliness and hence there wasn’t any difference in their married life.

He continued to love her and she also loved him very much. But as days passed she lost her intact beauty gradually. Love is a feeling when you don’t want to sleep because the reality is better than your dreams.

One day she died instantaneously. Her death brought him great sorrow. For Nelson, it’s the utmost traumatic phase to cross that but he finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town as soon as because that place tortures his wife’s memory, their golden days of togetherness.

While leaving the town a man from behind called and said, “now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you. He replied I am not blind. I was acting because if she knew l could see her ugliness it would have pained her more than her disease. So I pretended to be blind. She was a very good wife. I only wanted to keep her happy because everything is predestined.”

Distance can stop me from kissing you,

 but it cant stop me from loving you.

Till my last day, I’ll be loving you!”

Attitude makes a difference in Life!……………

A person who is capable of turning the negative into a positive one. It is something which not really everyone has. Every day we see people depressed and unhappy with some of the issues in life. Some issues are not really even issues if we see. Nelson just got a greater perspective of life with her and how not to bog down when life feels unpleasant. It is simply the way you see life and how important it is to see the good aspects of life.

Attitude does make a hell lot of difference! You can either make your life wonderful or awful just by the mentality you keep. Love means caring for other’s happiness more than your own. Howsoever painful the choice may be.

Sometimes it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s shortcomings, in order to be happy. No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That’s the spirit of forgiveness.

Yes…it is true love!…………

Love happens when two people are emotionally and physically compatible when they care for each other when they can think of a future together. Unfortunately, physical appearance can only attract, not make someone fall in love.

 Yes, men take time, but when they do fall in love, they are compassionate. You will never see as loyal a guy as the one in love. Other girls just fail to charm him. Lust disappears. He will want the whole of you, know about every single pore of your body. He will bleed at the thought of you departing, he will dream about future kids with you, he will want you to own his money.

Things that you cannot imagine. The way you sleep, the way you hold him in public, in private, the way you observe him, the way you listen to him talk, the way you own him. Carry yourself well in front of his company, that’s all he expects. Nothing more. But when it comes to love, physical appearance rarely matters. Looks fade away. Looks subside, I mean to portray about true love here. The spirit of pure love is forgiveness, unity, and togetherness!

“Love is an invisible bond that combines two souls together!”
