"Temme abt yourself ?"-- my experience and thoughts on it..

"COULD U PLS TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF ?"-- This is a question that opens almost every interview . Unfortunately , many candidates fall at the first hurdle , stumped by this deceptively simple , yet surprisingly difficult to answer question .

This is a question that is bound to feature in almost every interview that you attend over the course of your career , and is always a good idea to prepare a standard script . Afterall , with minor changes , your statemnet can be used for different interviews .

Begin with a brief introduction , explain your current responsibilities , concentrate on your most recent work history or achievements , avoid going back more than 10 years .

Conclude with a statement about future career goals and job aspirations . You can also end with an affirmative or insightful query that will set the pace for the questions that follow . A good question will give you the opportunity to engage the interviewer in a conversation and alleviate nervousness .

Remember , a brief , succint and to the point explanation about what you have to offer to the company is what the interviewer will be expecting .

Schools these days in Chennai-India

Schools are institutions where discrimination based on caste , creed , religion , and economic background is expected to be discouraged . Of late discrimination based on performance by school authorities has SADLY become the norm . This makes students classify their classmates .

Segregation of students into various performance groups makes the students alter their self esteem . tsudents are under constant pressure to prove every day to belong to certain group . Stigmatisation and discrimination makes some students prone to depression and develop suicidal ideation .

Adolescents have empathy for their frns . To not appreciate this quality , but insteat simply expect the student to achieve greater things is not value education .

Schools are temples of learning . School authorities should ensure that stigmatisation , discrimination , categorisation , segregation , selfish progression and such should not form a part of its curriculum .

LONDON (AFP) - The first flight by a commercial airline to be partly powered by biofuels and billed as heralding a eco-friendlier and cheaper era of airline travel took place on Sunday, Virgin Atlantic said.

A Virgin Boeing 747 jumbo jet, carrying biofuels mixed with kerosene, traditional jet fuel, made the short trip between London and Amsterdam with no passengers on board.

Virgin Atlantic chief Richard Branson described the flight as "history in the making".

  • A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always withthe same person.

  • Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway.

  • Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and theother is husband !
