14 Unmarried – Worst Thing Ever

These 14 People Prove That Being Unmarried Is The Worst Thing Ever

 

1. APJ Abdul Kalam

images.indianexpress.com

A man who inspired generations, became one of India’s best Presidents, and made a mark with his scientific mind most definitely did not need marriage to validate his existence. Honestly, guys, I can’t be sarcastic with him. So take that, annoying auntyjis.

 

2. Jon Hamm

peopledotcom.files.wordpress.com

One of the many reasons I watched Mad Men and seriously considered a career in advertising is…unmarried. After winning a Golden Globe, running a production company, and being completely in love with his girlfriend of 10 years, you’ve got to pity Jon for never bowing down to societal pressure and getting married.

3. Oprah Winfrey

cbsnews3.cbsistatic.com

Producer, actress, award-winning everything, talk-show host, and healer of several wounds, Oprah should have REALLY taken time out from living life on her own terms to find someone nice and get married. Her life must be so unfulfilling. 😦

4. Karan Johar

HOW DARE THIS FINANCIALLY STABLE, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED INDIVIDUAL HAVE A CHILD WITHOUT A SPOUSE!? Of course, he’s won awards, given us movies that have become an undeniable part of Indian pop culture, and hosts a successful talk show. But someone please tell him that he needs to get a legal document to validate his happiness immediately.

5. Al Pacino

s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com

This Academy, Emmy, and Golden Globe Award-winning filmmaker and father is basically living proof that all those shiny trophies don’t mean shit unless you’ve given someone a shiny ring. Sigh.

6. Matthew Perry

www.azquotes.com

The person who made Chandler Bing and his truly beautiful, sarcastic one-liners iconic is unmarried AF. He went on to become a pop culture icon, battle his demons with the support of his loved ones, and re-establish himself as a mainstream actor. Argh, the poor man.

7. Lata Mangeshkar

i.ytimg.com

I guess she was so caught up in becoming a living legend and singing songs that can move people to tears that she forgot to get married. Hmpf.

8. Kangana Ranaut

78.media.tumblr.com

National Award winning actress, a woman who repeatedly fights back, holds her own and made her mark, Kangana needs to get that shaadi business done ASAP mostly because she clearly needs someone else to fight her battles. Poor helpless thing.

9. Ratan Tata

www.livemint.com

Humanitarian, philanthropist, industrialist, Ratan Tata needs to be told that he is unmarried because he’s obviously been far too busy making a difference to have noticed.

10. Harper Lee

2.bp.blogspot.com

The woman behind To Kill A Mockingbird‘, easily one of the best novels of well…any century, Harper Lee was probably too busy making people aware of racism to have gotten married. Such an incredibly sad life.

11. Kiran Desai

www.outlookindia.com

What’s the use of writing a Man Booker Award winning book if you don’t at LEAST sign those wedding papers, right?

12. Barkha Dutt

qph.ec.quoracdn.net

Honestly, Barkha, if only you took a day off from your award-winning journalism to find your perfect match. I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed.

13. Sushmita Sen

media2.intoday.in

The tale of Sushmita Sen’s spinsterhood is heartbreaking. But on the bright side, at least she has her two beautiful daughters, her films, and that kinda shiny Miss Universe crown to help her through her difficult life.

 

 

14. Priyanka Chopra

media.giphy.com

A former Miss World, a chart-topping singer, a Padma Shri recipient and easily one of India’s most recognizable faces, poor lil’ Priyanka is proof that all your achievements are of no use unless you have a spouse to share them with. Someone please tell her that her ovaries are drying up and she needs to have kids ASAP.

Sincerely

Dear World,  Sincerely, Introverts Everywhere.

Yes, we could just tell these things to you, but we don’t. And we can’t. That’s the point.

So here’s the thing: I’ve always been the most introverted one in all the friends’ groups I’ve ever been a part of. And chances are that you’ve got one of those quiet little creatures in your own gang of friends too. And I bet you’ve had a frustratingly hard time trying to figure out what goes on in that little mysterious head of theirs. Mostly because they won’t just tell you.

Well, as the strange introvert friend myself, let me tell you: if you’re having a hard time figuring us out, we’re sorry. But we’re having a way harder time trying to understand and explain ourselves too! So, to all those souls who wish they could understand their introvert friends better, here are some of the things we wish we could tell you.

1. We have some of our best conversations only when we are talking to people one-on-one.

Source

It’s in the comfort of being with someone who truly knows our weirdness that we can engage in any real conversation.

2. We introverts have MULTIPLE layers of comfort firewalls to push through before we can even start saying “hi” without freaking out.

Source

So if we’re being super-awkward around you, it’s because our process of “getting comfortable” is still work in progress.

3. If you’re lucky, you might catch us at one of our rare extrovert-y moments (on a drunken night, perhaps?).

Source

But please don’t be upset when we crawl right back into our shell the next day. We NEED it.

4. The thought of initiating conversations with new humans terrifies us, which is why we might not always show up when you invite us to events.

Source

But we’d still like you to invite us! *Cute smile face*

 

5. If we get strangely quiet when you introduce us to new people, it’s not because we aren’t friendly. We like making friends!

Source

It’s because we’ve now entered panic mode. Which means: whoops, our brain has just left the building. Help us?

 

6. We’re so much better with words than on awkward phone calls.

Source

Which is why you might find us not taking your calls, but then texting long paragraphs of deeply sentimental stuff right after. Also, being able to make the right emoji choice and endlessly re-read our text drafts REALLY helps!

7. We value our personal space.

Source

So as much as we love hugs, we love retreating into our bubble afterwards more.

8. We need breaks from social interactions.

Source

We had a great time hanging out the evening before, but the next day, we will not be making ANY plans because we will be happily recovering with a snuggly blanket and a good ol’ TV binge.

 

9. We fear you’ll get bored of us someday.

Source

In a world fuelled by endless chatter, we introverts fear that our extended silences will not be “fun enough” for our friendships.

10. It amazes us too, but we like hanging out with people more than you might think.

Source

It’s just that we will be leaving a party earlier than most people because we’ve exhausted our social interaction powers for the day.

11. We love surprises, but we aren’t really fans of being surprised with people.

Source

So please let us know if there are going to be more than two people involved – I swear, we’ll totally act surprised.

12. If we like you, we are totally okay with us being silent together for long, long periods of time.

Source

In fact, psst here’s a secret: we love silences. It gives us a break from constantly, obsessively thinking of things to talk about.

 

13. If you become our special person, we will take that fact very VERY seriously.

Source

We are the absolute best at listening, offering advice and just being there. So no matter our introversion and the many qualms that come with it, let us know when you need us and we won’t let any of the above get in the way of us making you feel better.

Some True Words /Small difference makes life tough for them.

Gender dysphoria (GD),  or gender identity disorder (GID), is the distress a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth. In this case, the assigned sex and gender do not match the person’s gender identity, and the person is transgender. There is evidence suggesting that twins who identify with a gender different from their assigned sex may do so not only due to psychological or behavioral causes, but also biological ones related to their genetics or exposure to hormones before birth…..

 

 

Transgender people are those who have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their assigned sex. This small difference makes life tough for them. Today i am talking about those who live in our society  , but most of the people ( society) never except them . Yes today i am writing on transgenders .Transgender ( khusra ) reflects a group of people who enjoy the least amount of respect or rights in Pakistan. Due to the controversial nature and typical mindset of people, the subject of Transgender rights in Pakistan is not even discussed now a days if i am not wrong . Mostly our societies / people  do not even consider them as a part of their community.

 

According to recent research studies conducted on transgender-ism, approx one out of 50 children are identified with a transgender tendency/ potential.

It means about 2% population of Pakistan is affected by transgender-ism.

here are several other issues that are faced by transgenders in Pakistan; such as:

  1. There is no government aid or support system to help these individuals live a normal life.

  2. Government institutions and other governing bodies are known to harass these individuals.

  3. In case of any criminal victimization or even sexual harassment, these individuals get no help/ support from the community or government institutions.

  4. Due to literally no job opportunities and financial security, most members of the transgender community is forced to make their living by prostitution.

Pakistan’s transgender community takes another step forward

http://aje.io/z27jy

  (Rights) Bill 2017  passed

The Senate decide on Wednesday approved a bill for the protection of transgender person rights, empowering them to determine their own gender identity by Senator Dr Karim Khawaja, on the condition that it goes on to become a law, will allow the trans community to be recognized.

The bill strictly prohibits organisations and companies from discriminating against transgenders at the workplace. It allow transgenders to obtain a driver’s license and passport. It will also give them the option of getting their gender corrected in the  (NADRA) records.

 Transgender in the Emergency-Room

According to a recent survey, about 70 percent of transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals have faced serious discrimination in a healthcare setting.

 Death Rate / suicide Attempts

n a new study, 30 percent of transgender youth report a history of at least one suicide attempt, and nearly 42 percent report a history of self-injury, such as cutting.

A case in Pakistan got flamed when a transgender was shot by unknown militants. The administration got confused whether they should take it to the male ward or female ward in the hospital. Meanwhile, he died.

Reason of  suicide Attempts

Mostly after the rejection from their families side , transgender people have increased risks for health problems, including suicide, substance abuse, depression and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which causes AIDS. They also faced these challenges like  poverty, violence, incarceration and discrimination in housing, employment and healthcare.

  1. Almost 54 percent experienced a low amount of family rejection, about 31 percent experienced a moderate amount of rejection and about 14 percent experienced a high amount of rejection.
  2. And  42 %  reported attempting suicide at some point in their lives, and about 26 percent reported abusing drugs or alcohol.

Poverty Rate of Transgenders

According to a 2015 survey conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality, 29 percent of transgenders surveyed live in poverty and 30 percent had been homeless at some point in their lives. Their unemployment rate was 15 percent.

 

Rights of Transgenders in Islam / and as a citizen

As wl as according to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Supreme Court of Pakistan agreed to give transgender equal rights like other citizens of this country with protection under the article 4 and 9 of the Pakistani constitution 1973.
. In 2013, they got as same rights as all citizens of Pakistan. And the federal and provincial governments give them basic rights of employments, education, health, work in governments different departments during the comparable period of time .
More targeted prevention approaches are needed in combination with increased welfare and employment opportunities to address the specific needs of transgender people. Recently I have studied that nine out of ten trans-people do not consult doctors even in case of serious illness, because of the mistreatment they know they will face in health services.

Country’s first school for transgender

The first school for the transgender community was launched at an event at the Alhamra Open Air Theatre, Gaddafi Stadium, on Sunday. The team said more than 40 aspiring students from the transgender community have already registered with the soon-to-be-operational school. The school will be formally launched through an opening ceremony at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore’s Alhamra Hall,

Pakistan’s first transgender news anchor

Marvia Malik, a 21-year-old news anchor, hit the airwaves last week in Pakistan for what was a landmark broadcast. Malik is transgender, the first to ever deliver the news on television in what is a conservative Muslim nation. Malik made her debut on Kohenoor, a local TV news station in Lahore. She worked as a makeup artist in order to fund her higher studies, before pursuing a career in mass media, graduating with a degree in the latter from Punjab University. She plans to follow through with higher studies. She then applied for a position at Kohenoor News. Regarding the breakthrough with her becoming a news anchor, Marvia has stated that, “Our society treats transgender people shamefully, degrading them, denying them jobs, laughing at them and taunting them.I want to change that

Our society treats transgender people shamefully, degrading them, denying them jobs, laughing at them and taunting them,” Malik said. “I want to change that.”

“My parents never accepted me as their child,” she said. “They will never accept me.”

” She also faced bullying at school and after graduating from high school, was kicked out of the house by her parents.

She said “I cannot express the love and respect I have received here since I began work,” she said. “I have not felt any discrimination.”

But Malik persisted working as a beautician to pay her way through journalism school at Punjab University. The news, she says is her calling in life.

My grades don’t define my intelligence

15439796_1286235761449306_4773488036194252846_n.jpgThe last paper for the final exams of the semester was almost ending when the instructor came to announce that our marks for a course had already been put up on the notice board and students could see them once they finish with the paper.

I was super-excited and confident too. Achieving good grades and already making it to the top three in the class had made me confident. As soon as the paper ended, everyone rushed towards the notice board while I chose to stay calm and sit on the bench. I was expecting someone to come over and congratulate me for scoring the highest, as it happened most of the time. However, what followed was a situation I’d never experienced before.

A crowd of competitors came up with the news that I had cleared the course, but with C grade. I would have been okay (not happy) with the news if my intelligence would not have been questioned.

Just a few moments ago, I was among the most brilliant students in the class. However, the moment I was declared to have gotten C grade in a course, I became a duffer. Everyone just had the same question for me, “What happened to you? How come your grade fell?”

It was very astonishing for me too. There were several people around me who had even scored worse than me, but still they stood around expressing surprise on my marks, as if to degrade me. I could find no other option but to escape to the girl’s common room to find some space to gulp down this bitter truth.

The bitter reality was not that I got a C grade, but it was that my classmates were so concerned about how a topper’s got such poor marks. I was the hot topic and everyone around somehow had the opinion that if I was really intelligent, I would not have scored poorly in any case.

The teachers also congratulated only the ones who were top scorers. What if once I wasn’t able to prove myself? Was all the previous hard work and reputation of no significance?

That moment, I felt what the other students would have felt in previous semesters. While I would have remained busy celebrating my superiority over others, they must have been made to believe that they were not intelligent or capable enough to meet the required standards.



At that moment I realised how the criteria of talent, intelligence and capabilities were confined to grades. It was hard to accept how I was being defined by whatever I had scored and not the fund of knowledge that was within me. This trend, however, had emerged since I went to my school for the first time. I was overloaded with gifts and appreciation whenever I got a good position and scolded the moment I didn’t make it into the top three. I remember how I studied hard not because I wanted to clear my concepts, but because it was necessary for me to grab a position to avail all those lovely gifts as a child. It didn’t mattered whether or not I had an understanding of what was being taught in the class, if I was able to somehow score high, that straight away meant that I was good at studies.

Unfortunately, in pushing children to adopt the “learn and write” method, the idea of building their intelligence and testing them on the basis of their capabilities has been ignored totally. I wanted to scream to make everyone realise how unethical it was to judge someone on their grades, to discuss and ask the reasons for their failure. But, unfortunately, I had been part of the same practice too. I always enjoyed the appreciation that I got after scoring high, ignoring the fact how my smile and cheers would have made others feel down.

I realised how I and the other students had been forced to chase grades and judge others and ourselves too on the basis of grades only. It is the cruellest reality of our society that the one who fails to produce the desired results in exams is regarded as a symbol of failure in real life too.

Sadly, the complex education system in Pakistan and many countries fails to accept the intelligence in students without having its proof on a piece of paper. It is not necessary that everyone is good at rote learning, some might retain the basic concepts which are enough for success.

Due to what I faced that day, I realised there might be many Steve Jobs in our country, who may be college dropouts or C graders but have the potential to prove it to the world that grades don’t define them. If our society too would have provided open space to those who want to prove themselves by their skills and not by their grades, we would not have been reading the inspirational stories of Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, instead we would have been producing them.

It’s high time that parents and teachers should understand how important it has become to keep grades aside and judge students on their abilities. Giving superiority on the basis of grades is just another form of modern slavery, within which personal and professional growth is totally impossible.

Visual Basic The Quiz Program – File Handling

 Introduction

This page contains instructions to make a simple quiz in Visual Basic. It introduces the Structure statement for creating user-defined data types and how to read from a text file containing the question data for the quiz.

The Structure Statement

The data types we have used so far only store one type of information. The structure statement allows you to create variables which store more than one type of information.

For each question in our quiz there are several data items to be stored,

  • Question Text
  • 4 Possible Answers
  • The Correct Answer

This translates to Visual Basic as the following code,

Private Structure myQuestion
Public strQuestionText As String
Public strSuggestion() As String
Public strAnswer As String
End Structure

Study this code carefully and then copy it to the code window (at the top where global variable declarations go.

Just below the structure statement, we will declare the variables that we need for the program. The first line declares an array of variables using our structure.

Dim strTheQuestions(9) As myQuestion
Dim intCurrentQuestion As Integer
Dim intCorrect As Integer

Adding The Text File To The Project

To add the text file to the project, click on Add Existing Item on the Project menu. Choose the questions file. In the properties for the new object change the value of the Copy To Output Folder to Always.

Reading The Text File

We need to read values from the text file to store in our data structure.

The first job is to make sure that our program references the correct code libraries for File IO operations. Above the Public Class Quiz line at the top of your program, write the following lines,

Imports system
Imports System.IO

The following code reads from the text file and stores the results in our structure. This code should be placed in the load event handler for the form.

‘open up a stream to the file we need
Using sr As StreamReader = File.OpenText(“questions.txt”)
‘counter variables for loops to read in question data
Dim intQuestionCounter As Integer, intAnswerCounter As Integer
‘Loops through each question
For intQuestionCounter = 0 To 9
‘reads the question text of thenext item
strTheQuestions(intQuestionCounter).strQuestionText = sr.ReadLine()
‘initialises the array of answers
ReDim strTheQuestions(intQuestionCounter).strSuggestion(3)
‘reads in the set of suggestions for this question
For intAnswerCounter = 0 To 3
strTheQuestions(intQuestionCounter).strSuggestion(intAnswerCounter) = sr.ReadLine()
Next
‘reads the answer for the question
strTheQuestions(intQuestionCounter).strAnswer = sr.ReadLine()
Next
End Using

Initialising Global Variables

The variables we declared at the top of the form need to have their initial values set, we do this beneath the code we have already written inside the load event handler for the form.

intCurrentQuestion = 0
intCorrect = 0

Designing The Form

The form is set up to be able to display a question at a time. There is a label called lblQuestionText, a list box called lstAnswers and a button called btnNextQuestion. Your form should look something like the image below,

Writing A Procedure To Display A Question

Questions will be displayed on the form on 10 occasions. It makes sense to create reusable code to do this. The following procedure can be used to display the correct information in our controls.

Private Sub showQuestion()
lblQuestionText.Text = (intCurrentQuestion + 1) & “. ” & strTheQuestions(intCurrentQuestion).strQuestionText
Dim intcounter As Integer
lstAnswers.Items.Clear()
For intcounter = 0 To 3
lstAnswers.Items.Add(strTheQuestions(intCurrentQuestion).strSuggestion(intcounter))
Next
End Sub

The last line of code within the form’s load event handler should be a call to this procedure,

showQuestion()

Programming The Button

When the button is pressed, we need to check that the user has chosen an answer. If they have, we compare their answer with the actual answer. If they are correct, we add 1 to their score and increase the question counter by 1. If all of the questions have been answered, we tell the user their score.

If lstAnswers.SelectedIndex = -1 Then Exit Sub
Dim strUserAnswer As String
strUserAnswer = lstAnswers.SelectedItem
If strUserAnswer = strTheQuestions(intCurrentQuestion).strAnswer Then
intCorrect = intCorrect + 1
End If
intCurrentQuestion = intCurrentQuestion + 1
If intCurrentQuestion = 10 Then
MsgBox(“The quiz is over, you scored ” & intCorrect & ” out of 10.”)
Else
showQuestion()
End If

Extensions To The Program

Better Feedback / Alternative Input Methods

The program functions in a very basic way. There is little feedback to the user and there are many ways to allow the user to select an answer. You could change the theme of the quiz – and make the questions a tad more challenging. You could also build on the code that you have copied from this page to make a Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? game. You could also tell the user which questions they got wrong and end the quiz in a less abrupt manner.

More File Handling

You will need to use the MSDN help file that comes with Visual Basic. Search the help to find out how to write information to a text file. There are several examples showing how to do this. You could then make an editor to allow you to design quizzes to use with the program.

You might also want to use the OpenFileDialog and the SaveFileDialog to allow you to choose the files that you want to edit.

A final enhancement would allow the user to choose their quiz by selecting the appropriate quiz file.

Programming Might Not Be That Hard

programming-languages

If you think that coding has been overwhelmingly hard to understand, then you might have a minimum chance to discover the essence of programming. On the other hand, no matter how you felt coding as difficult task to accomplish, but end up finishing it, programming might not be as hard as you think. In fact, coding is a part of a long process taken in a single programming project.

Besides coding, programming involves requirement analysis, specification, software architecture, coding, debugging, integration, maintenance, and software testing. Those steps are what you basically need to proceed one by one as you are creating a computer software. So, in very simple words, programming urges you design, build, and evaluate a computer software, as if you are constructing a house which is able to occupy the inhabitants’ various activities.

However, many people do not find those general points as programming’s challenges. The implementation is obviously what they bother, particularly about writing programming languages.

You should have understood that computers do not ‘speak’ the same language as what we use. What is written on a particularly computer software’s interface is our language, human’s languages, since the software is made for us to understand its instructions. Yet, the software itself does not receive the terms as its language, but rather as a constructed command which has been ‘translated’ into human languages.

2014%2f04%2f30%2fae%2fcomputerpro-a015f

Fortunately, today, more people use the kind of programming language which is easier to be used. The language is named ‘high-level language’. Its characteristics, compared to ‘low-level language’ are depended on natural language or mathematical notation which are basically more easily to be understood by people in general.

Because of that language, programmers today, find it easier to design computer software. In addition, because of that language too, we do not actually need to worry about different alphabet, grammar or syntax that we find in high-level language. By using certain programming language, programmers would majorly need to use alphabets, grammar or syntax that they use in English. So, if you think it is hard, you might just have not get used to it.

Consequently, it does not take years to master programming skill. If you can get those mentioned basic points about programming alongside its language use, then it would not take you so long to complete the learning by implementing your lesson. Therefore, it is somewhat logical for one to build her/his own computer software after taking the course not more than a couple of months.
