62% of Indians had first-hand experience of paying bribe to government officials which is supposed to be done free. India holding 87th rank in Corruption Perception Index and still we are experiencing corruption in police station,RTO offices ,Thaluk and in every Government organisation from top to bottom though the amount varies habit is constant.
It is a fact both bribe giving and taking is crime but being a common man if a policeman asking you to pay and move what you do we have to pay 50 or 100 as per their demand .A common man doesn’t have boldness or money to face the aftermath.
5Th Pillar the Chennai based Non Governmental Organisation brought a solution to this .Think of the situation officials feeling ashamed of your money.5th pillar introduced Zero rupees note with an intention to put an end to corruption even in small level, the note looks like 50 rupees note but 5 misses here. You can get this note from them so whenever a government officials asking you bribe you can give them Zero rupees note the smartest way to make them realize.
Remember one thing you cannot use this note elsewhere except as a bribe so whenever you step in Government Organisation be sure you have this note.
First they conducted trial run in Chennai when it is well received by both ends they started distributing across India everyday they are distributing thousands of notes.
This new thinking has to be appreciated .If you have anyother ways to stop corruption please comment down below.
Thala Ajith making headlines for his self-confidence, boldness, and humbleness in Tamilnadu. He was listed by Forbes in India’s Top 100 celebrities for the year 2014.Popularly known as Thala in South India-born in Secunderabad started his film career in supporting roles in 1990 later got opportunities to become the protagonist in Tamil cinemas. This gentleman is not only acting but also teaching us some lessons to come up in life.
1.keep your passion live
He was passionate about racing at the age of 18 but it is costlier to follow up his dreams so to support his passion he worked as an apprentice, did press ads and small TV commercial advertisements. When the chains were worn out his friends helped him to buy a new one and helped him with tyres to pursue his passion. He had chosen film as a career to earn and support his passion for racing.
It doesn’t matter what you are doing now but keep both eyes on your passion, if you are not satisfied with your job don’t lament earn money from your job for two years save some money and invest it in your passion, the job you are working is not the destined one but your passion is final.
He is not only famous for his name or acting but also being confident and bold.He made a bold statement in front of then Chief Minister of Tamilnadu that goons are forcing him to attend the public meeting in which he was not interested .It was well received by fellow actors Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan.
One day we are going to die to be bold and die as a warrior don’t hide or be a coward in facing your problem be bold and face it don’t run away .Third persons are nothing to you, don’t fear for them if you are right in your decision and sayings. There are people in office though their boss sounds wrong they support them its fear of losing a job.
It’s not only his boldness but also his simplicity despite a star. He went to school for his daughter’s admission and stood in a queue to cast a vote. His respect and support for his co-stars and low-level labours in movie set are widely spoken.
But nowadays we need not be a star to disrespect others if we own a car then we start showing our attitude right from waiter to security in the gate. We never lose anything if we respect people irrespective of their professions.
These are the three important lesson we extracted from his life story if you feel we missed many please comment down below we will add it up.
If you feel I left out some interesting points please let me know in the comment. Don’t fail to like, share and comment down.

In everyday conversation at least one time we use the word “Magilchi”(happy in English) but we never made it as WhatsApp status or appreciated like this before but when he said “Magilchi” it became a magical word which is making some magic in your thinking in your speaking the way you address others. Rajini knows some magic to attract mass right from child to old but he didn’t learn it in a single day his life simply inspiring common man to work hard and get what you want .Here we are listing few important lessons we should learn from superstar Rajinikanth
1.Don’t follow others follow your heart
Right from his school days Superstar Rajinikanth was interested in acting and did many dramas in Ramakrishna Math and after schooling he worked as coolie, carpenter, and Conductor but when he came to know that Madras Film Institute offering acting course he wished to join and improve his acting but his family was not supportive of his decision but this gentleman knew that time itself he followed his passion with the help of his friend Raj Bahadur who motivated him and supported him financially.
When everyone joins engineering without thinking about our passion and interest we blindly join and make the four years ineffective .Remember one thing you cannot achieve anything in your life if you don’t follow in what you are interested. Just imagine if Rajini didn’t take that bold and risk decision that time.
It means you need not go against your parents go in love with your passion and dreams everything is on its way to reaching you.
2.Prepare yourself for your dream
When he performed a play he got noticed by Tamil film director K.Balachander he advised him to learn Tamil ,Yes Rajini is basically from Marathi family his parents thought him the Marathi language well but not Tamil so he has to work on it. Rajini took his word serious and put more efforts to master it .Obviously, he suffered and worked hard in past before pronouncing “Magilchi”.
We dream a lot but have you ever questioned yourself am I suitable for this? Graduates are simply blaming the college or Government for unemployment though it is one of the reasons they should groom themselves instead of searching job for one year, do two six months course in a year make your resume suitable for the job .Dreamers lament but not doers like Rajini.
3.Be humble and don’t stop working
Though he was popular and topped the industry then he visited temples before his every release and he continues it .Even without a story, his film can make a box office hit but still he believes it is God’s blessings.
Whatever the heights we reach be humble and believe time may bring you down anytime.
He announced that he would contribute 10 million to interlink Indian Rivers he met then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to gain support for this project. Naman Ramachandran, the author of “Rajnikanth”(Biography) made a statement Rajinikanth has given half of his income to charities but unpublicised.
It’s not only Rajinikanth almost all the successful people are philanthropists ,teaching us only one thing when you are growing to get from the society after you grown to give it back to the society.
If you want to share some other interesting learnings from Rajinikanth please feel free to comment down.

Avoid Facebook Ad
In a race to increase more likes than your competitor doesn’t spend thousands and sometimes lakhs in a Facebook ad it’s costlier than any other promotion to get likes here we explain why.
For example when you promote your Facebook page for Rs.100/- estimated likes for Indian audience (example) only filtered with age from 15 to 65 the estimated likes will be 2-8 as per Facebook stats. But in reality, you get 30-40 page likes.
We promoted our page for Rs.100/- and we got 33 new likes means Rs.3.03/- cost per like. Which is quite costly already you are bootstrapped are you going to invest this much in increasing page likes.
Try cost-effective ways to increase page likes
1.Money for likes
Announce paisa for likes in Facebook ask people who is ready to increase page likes for you and in return he gets money you can decide your amount for example if a guy gets 100 likes for your page you can pay Rs.50/- (Re.50/- per like) in that you can increase likes at low-cost Rs.50/- is small amount to transfer so you can recharge his mobile transfer to e-wallet.
It is a simple job for him he will invite his friends from your page and also motivates others to like your page and don’t forget to get the screenshot of Facebook notification from his account before paying him.

What are you going to do? The first question you have to face after your graduation or even in your final year. If you get placement in your campus then you are lucky I say more than talented if you are not then the rest may be difficult.
As of data emerging from 2011 census Ten million Indians with graduate, post-graduate and technical degrees are looking for job which means 15% of all Indians with the highest level of education. So it’s not only you but many.
One of the reasons behind is there is a gap between Corporate expectations and your college learnings we need to find and fill the gap so here comes the Chennai based emerging start-up first.jobs to fill the gap founded by College Of Engineering ,Guindy alumni AJ BalaSubramanian and PR Madhan. SocialTalky fired few question about first.jobs got an interesting and excellent reply from them.
First.jobs’ mission is to help fresh graduates secure their first job and serve recruiters to find fresh talent. “First Jobs – Fresh Talent” is our mantra.We do this by making it easy for all the stakeholders, the candidate, the college and the company.We aggregate profiles, jobs, assess candidates, alert with job offers, streamline communication between candidates and recruiters. Our audacious goal is to become the first place for first job.
What inspired you to start this initiative?
Madhan and I ( A J Balasubramanian) co-founders of Techruit Technologies, have been working in this space for over a decade.We have identified the problems in finding fresh talent and finding right jobs. Our analysis shows that this is a major pain point for most of the companies and all the candidates.
Behind our mission is a social cause. Our business is a social venture with profit resulting from the value and service we provide to our stakeholders.
What makes you stand unique from your competitors, what is special in you?
Unlike others in this space, we are not just after the top cream. Our studies show that the bulk of the requirement for candidates and jobs are in the middle of the Pyramid. The top performers are being chased by all and they don’t have problems in getting jobs. When you move to the middle, there are many problems due to the complex matching process involved.
In fact the problem is due to the various criteria one applies for finding and selecting a candidate as well as the candidate accepting a job subject to many criteria.
In most cases, the selection process is complex for both the candidates and recruiters. We are also very clear that we cannot charge big fees from our stakeholders. Like most of the problems that we have in India, for our service to be successful, it has to be of great value, easy to use and it should be priced very low.
The Candidates who are searching for job are struggling without income. We have to be sensitive to this. We don’t want our candidates to spend lots of money and effort.
Imagine, if someone has to travel to different cities and attend many interviews at distant locations, the cost and effort that goes in to this.
Our goal is to reduce that. Eventually, we would like to make it very easy for the stakeholders to connect, apply, evaluate, match and recruit easily. We have developed a cloud mobile application to solve this issue. We have many features being added through continuous feedback and development.
Why people should try you?
People, especially recruiters should try for the following reasons a. They can save their time and effort, in identifying talents, evaluating with (online our test engine)
b. They can manage the recruitment process – filter, communicate with the candidates with SMS, emails, Mobile push notifications
c. They would save lots of efforts and time.
d. this is particularly very useful for growing companies, who may not have human resources and infrastructure. This system helps them to identify the right talent without spending lots of money or effort.
Candidates should try our services because
a. They can manage the entire process from a single point, easily
b. They would never miss an opportunity, they would be getting alert 24 x 7 through mobile app. No need to login and check spam folders.
c. They would save time, effort and money in communicating and locating
d. Candidates would get alerts based on their preference, which helps them to filter unwanted things and increases the chance for their fitment.
e. our analytics would also give realistic picture to the candidates about their rating and prospects so that they can focus on succeeding.
Plans on future first.jobs
Our plan is to become the destination for first job and fresh talent and we would like to enrol about 5 million candidate profile every year and help them secure their first job by working with various types of job providers. We want to integrate with maps etc. leverage the system to share information with other stakeholders and help Placement officers and recruiting companies for managing campus drives, as well as pooled and open freshers drive, in which case companies can conduct drives with specific profiles of students in specific geography and demography.
We would become a robust clearing house for first job and fresh talent.
We would increase the thickness of our market place with more and more profiles and companies, we would also make sure our data is of best quality validated and rated, we would also make it easy for conducting business, we would also reduce congestion which often starts when markets become thick. Right now we have started our operations in Tamilnadu and South. We want to go National and go Global.
We are actively talking to a few angel investors. So far, we have bootstrapped with our own investment and internal cash flow. If we can get additional funding, we can scale rapidly. This is a very important problem to be solved, if we want Indian youths to get what they deserve. For every company which sells a product, the important thing that they all must realize is that we need people who can earn. We are creating the customers for the rest of the industry, he added.
Hope this need of the hour start-up will help the fresher to start his life.
