There are various types of pollutions caused by us which I have discussed in the in my last post or the second last post.

So friends, what are you waiting for? Save the enviornment and take small measures to keep your surrounding enviornment clean.

Hear are some steps-

1) Minimize pesticide use.

2) Put leaves in a compost heap instead of burning them or throwing them away. Yard debris too large for your compost bin should be taken to a yard-debris recycler.

3) Use a microwave when- ever you can instead of a conventional oven or stove.

4) Plant trees to shade your home.

5) Walk or ride your bike instead of driving, whenever possible.


6) Join a carpool or vanpool to get to work.

7) Paint with brushes or rollers instead of using spray paints to minimize harmful emissions.

8) Use solar power for home and water heating.

9) Avoid slow-burning, smoldering fires. They produce the largest amount of pollution.

IPL(Indian Premier League)

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a league for Twenty20 cricket championship in India. It was initiated by Lalit Modi, who served as the league’s first Chairman and Commissioner and Board For Control Of Cricket In India (BCCI), headquartered in Mumbai and is supervised by BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla,who serves as the league’s Chairman and commissioner. It is currently contested by nine teams, consisting of players from around the cricketing world. It was started after an altercation between the BCCI and the IPL.

There have been six seasons of IPL since it was played first in 2008. It comes after every year. It was last played in 2013. Now let me tell about its history.

FIRST SEASON

The inaugural season of the tournament started on 18 April 2008 and lasted for 43 days with 59 matches scheduled, out of which 58 took place and 1 was washed out due to rain. The winner of first season was Rajasthan Royals.

SECOND SEASON

The 2009 Indian Premier League season, also known as IPL 2, was the second season of the Indian Premier League. The tournament was hosted by South Africa because of the General Elections in India and was played for 37 days from 18 April to 24 May 2009. The winner of second season was Deccan Chargers.

THIRD SEASON

The third season returned to India and it was the first IPL tournament that was broadcast live on YouTube. The final four matches of the tournament were screened in 3D across movie halls in India. Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians in the finals to win their first title.

FOURTH SEASON

On 21 March 2010, it was announced in Chennai that two new teams from Pune and Kochi will be added to the IPL for the fourth season. However, the bid around the kochi franchise turned controversial resulting in the resignation of minister Shashi Tharoor. But on fifth December 2010 it was decided that Kochi will take part in the fourth season of IPL.

Chennai Super Kings won their second consecutive title after defeating the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the final. 

FIFTH SEASON

Fifth season was organized in 2012. It was the first time in IPL that spot -fixing case and various other hurdles came to news. The fifth season of IPL was won by KKR (Kolkata Night Riders).

SIXTH SEASON

The season started on 3 April. Nine teams are participating in the sixth season.

On 26 May 2013, Mumbai Indians defeated CSK by 23 runs for their first title win. Dhoni scored an unbeaten 63 of 45 balls and Kieron Pollard was declared Man of the match for his unbeaten innings of 60 runs from 32 balls.

This was the IPL history till 26 May 2013. Now the next tournament will held in  2014.

Animal Cruelty

Cruelty Towards Animals

All living things have a right to live on this Earth but, we, very often become, totally, insensitive to their pain, only because they don’t have a  animals can’t speak the language of humans, voice.

Cruelty means inflicting pain and causing suffering. Animal cruelty is a nationwide problem rapidly growing in today’s society.

Animals are being beaten and starved everyday and millions of helpless animals die each year because of heartless owners. There are many forms of animal cruelty; some of the most common forms are scientific research, abandonment, and mistreatment.

Companies test products on animals for the safety of humans. Monkeys, rats, mice, dogs, and cats are some of the candidates used for laboratory research.

When God created this planet he had a specific purpose for all living things But Man in his greed had recklessly been plundering the natural abode of animals, killing them for pleasure, for food, for their skin and other parts of the body, and training some to serve his needs.

In many religions, animals were worshipped in the past and any cruelty towards them was condemned by the society and so their rights were protected, but, today we are becoming insensitive not only towards animals but also towards other human beings.

So let us join our hands together and take a decision to save the helpless animals.
