Know About India’s 14th President – Ram Nath Kovind.

The ruling party NDA with Narendra Modi being the Prime Minister of India after several discussions with oppositions and alliance parties laid rest to all speculations as the BJP Parliamentary Board  decided to name Ram Nath Kovind as the President candidate. The announcement of his name was quite similar to the naming of Yogi Adityanath as the Chief Minister of the Uttar Pradesh which came out nowhere being seen in the race for it.

The biggest political party up against BJP, INC disclosed their presidential candidate almost a week later naming Meira Kumar to be their face for the current presidential elections.

Who is Ram Nath Kovind?

Former Bihar governor Ramnath Kovind on 20thJuly,2017 was elected as the 14th President of India.The NDA’s presidential candidate won with over 7 lakh votes against Opposition candidate Meira Kumar.

Kovind, 71, is a Dalit leader and will take oath as the 14th President of India on 25th July,2017. Kovind was born on October 1, 1945 in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur Dehat district. He came from a modest background and worked his way from the ground to the top of the political pyramid. He married Savita Kovind on 30th May, 1974. They have one son and a daughter.

Kovind is a lawyer by training. He attained his B.Com and LLB degrees from Kanpur University and had a successful career as a practicing lawyer. He served as the Central Government’s advocate in Delhi High Court between 1977 and 1979. He was also standing counsel in Supreme Court between 1980 and 1993. He was made Advocate-on-Record at the apex court in 1978 and continued his legal practice at the Delhi High Court and Supreme Court till 1993.

Kovind held key positions in parliamentary committees during his 12-year stint as a lawmaker. Besides serving as the Chairman of Rajya Sabha House Committee, he was member of Parliamentary Committees on Welfare of Scheduled Castes/Tribes; Home Affairs; Petroleum and Natural Gas; Social Justice and Empowerment; Law and Justice.

Kovind’s Political Career

Ram Nath Kovind joined the BJP in 1991.He donated his ancestral home in Derapur to the RSS.Kovind had served as the head of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s SC and ST wings and served two terms in Rajya Sabha–1994-2000 and 2000- 2006. He has also been the national spokesperson of the BJP.

A distinguished statesman and orator, Kovind has addressed the United Nations as India’s representative in 2002. Between 1977 & 1978, he also served as the personal assistant of Prime Minister of India Morarji Desai.

After his tenure in the Rajya Sabha, he was sworn-in as the 36th Governor of Bihar in August 2015. He was sent to Bihar ahead of the assembly elections. As Governor, he was praised for constituting a judicial commission to investigate irregularities in promotion of undeserving teachers, mis-management of funds and appointment of undeserving candidates in universities.

Challenges For The President

Challenge for the 2nd Dalit President Kovind is to match the political acumen, assertion and independent nature of K.R.Narayanan who was the first dalit President of India eleted in 1997.  Narayanan was one of the most assertive presidents of the country who upheld constitutional values to the core. At the outset, he was the first president who exercised his franchise by standing in a queue like an ordinary citizen of the country. This can be considered as a revolutionary step in democratic politics, because presidents before him feared to be dubbed as partisan.

The  particular challenge for Kovind is to cushion the pain and agony of Dalits, who have been suffering for the past three years. How will he restore the lost pride of the Dalits? Moreover, will he be able to succeed in making reforms for their effective representation in different institutions of government if he becomes president of India?

I’m a student of Non-Medical and I want to get good score and crack  my entrance exam – JEE-Mains. I want to know the tips and strategies to score in the exam.

10 Tips To Crack JEE-Mains

As the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is around the corner, aspirants are gearing up their preparations.  They should focus on building a strong and solid foundation of scientific and technical knowledge. For JEE-Advanced, first a student must qualify the JEE (Main) exam with a good score. From 2017 onwards, the 12th board exams wouldn’t be taken into the consideration. Lakhs of students apply and appear for JEE-Mains exam but only 10% are able to qualify but you just need a well planned strategy to qualify this exam. Always remember –   Believe You Can Do It!

   1.Start Early

A student keen to crack the JEE exam, should start early preparation, preferably from Class XI onwards. Right from the beginning, a student should put in adequate efforts to prepare for the exam. Apart from an early start, the basics and fundamentals should be strong enough to crack an easy or a difficult question.  One should start preparing for the exam just after the 10th Exams over , you don’t have much time, so try to utilise that time.

   2.A well-prepared subject-wise chart

A student can do well in the JEE (Main) exam, if he/she has a thorough grasp of the concepts. However, for JEE (Advanced), comprehension, reasoning and analytical ability, skills are required to solve problems. Students should give ample importance to three subjects- Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics-and get all the fundamentals right in Class XI and XII itself. All the three subjects are equally important so one should devote equal time to these three. Study table for each subject and it’s topics should be listed and prepared.

   3.Know the exam

Before starting your preparations, it is essential to understand the format of the exam, type of questions, level of difficulty, marking patterns, eligibility, syllabus etc. This will help you to have a focused approach towards the exam. JEE-Mains examination is a 90 Multiple Choice Questions. The paper is divided into 3 sections ( Physics / Chemistry / Mathematics ) with 30 questions each. The duration of the examination is 3 hours which means you will have approximately around 90 seconds to attempt each question.

    4.Time Management

The time duration of the exam is three hours and with multiple choice questions and negative marking, managing time and speed is very important, which will come over time and with practice. Time management is one of the most important factors responsible for good marks.

DON’T make the same mistake others are doing. This can be your edge for gaining above everyone else. Manage your time to get the best results possible. Time can make or break your result. There is no better time to start than from NOW. If you have only 2-3 months left to prepare for your exams, then don’t join or continue any coaching or tuition lessons. This time is only for self-study and revising all the notes you have prepared so far.

   5.Solve Sample Papers and Previous Year Question Papers

When one is done with preparation and has done all the chapters, the most important thing is to solve the previous year question papers and sample papers that come pre JEE-Mains examination around 2-3 months before exam dated. Another way is while you have done 1 chapter go through all the questions asked related to it in the last few years. In market you will easily find books with chapterwise questions asked in JEE-Mains. Atleast solve 10 previous year question papers as it helps you get an idea about the level of questions and some what pattern of the question paper. Solving Sample papers and previous year question papers helps you with a quite great question bank and practice and analyze you how well you are prepared.

   6.Track progress

You need to periodically solve mock test papers and monitor your progress. This will help to identify your weak areas and concentrate on improving your speed and accuracy. If you are following the tip#5  then tip#6 goes hand in hand as it is really necessary to figure out your accuracy,  speed and the areas where you need to work much harder.

  7.Relax and meditate:

Usually as the time passes by and the exam approaches the student undergoes lots of emotions in forms of anxieties or depressions feeling low at times, in need of motivation, tired, in need of break. Learning meditation, yoga, or any other form of relaxation techniques as it suits you. Such techniques have a stress relieving effect and help you have a higher degree of concentration. One might get exhausted preparing for the exam but yoga and meditation will definitely help you in getting positive energy and refreshing you, your mind and your soul.

   8.Revise thoroughly and take breaks

Do not get complacent with your mock test results. Revise thoroughly and take short breaks at regular intervals, re-energize yourself and start again. Scoring good in mock tests or sample question papers or previous year question papers does not mean you know everything. Never get over confident about anything. Stay positive and just be confident.

    9.In depth Analysis of selected topics

Analysis of everything you do is must. It will give you an idea about your weaknesses and strengths. If you have to crack JEE-Mains, It is the most important thing to do, so that the selected topics are bulletproof! You need to take analyse your performance and topics on which you need to work harder. Analyzing a topic would help you to make a good total.

    10. During The Exam Time

Just before exam begins , be calm and stay positive don’t let your anxieties or nervousness take over you. Revising concepts would be great only if it does not burdens you or puts any sort of pressure. When the exam begins take care of time. Set your watch as per the examination hall time. Always read the instructions given at the front page of the question paper. Since, it’s MCQ’s carefully fill the option in your OMR sheet and circle it darkly and properly because the computer scans the answer sheet and accordingly your answers world be evaluated. In case you don’t properly shade your answer you might not get reward for an answer that was supposed to be correct. Since it’s 90 questions you won’t have enough time to cross check and solve. It is better either to tick the questions you have attempted or encircling the un-attempted questions.

You may get stuck on some questions, but don’t waste too much of your time on a single question. If you don’t know a particular question’s answer, skip that question and attempt that question later.

After you have completed your exam, if time left utilize it in solving un-attempted questions.

Cracking JEE-Mains exam is not an easy task. You will have to work hard and try to follow and implement all the above tips for getting better results. 


And always remember!

Toppers don’t do different things, they do things differently

Top 10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2017 : Movies To Look Out For

Hollywood movies in 2016 had a great business year. The Hollywood movies such as The Captain America: Civil War did extremely well at the screens. At the same time, many films failed to impress the audience. For instance, Batman vs Superman: The Dawn of Justice or Suicide Squad which were among the most anticipated movies of 2016 failed to do well.

These mentioned Hollywood movies are worth geeking out about, and they will get all the attention they deserve when they roll around – just not in this list. Nonetheless, a diverse array of dramas, comedies, and possible franchise-starters are also set to debut in the coming months.

The top 10 most anticipated Hollywood movies of 2017 are:

9.THOR Ragnarok ( NOVEMBER 3 )

The third entry in Marvel’s Thor series sees the Norse god of thunder (Chris Hemsworth) embark on some sort of intergalactic journey. His mischievous brother Loki will surely be involved. The Hulk and Doctor Strange. Cate Blanchett plays the film’s villain Hela. Tessa Thompson is the new love interest Valkyrie (Thor’s old beau, Natalie Portman, has decided she doesn’t want to make any more Marvel movies). The Thor movies are almost criminally underrated, much happier to indulge in fun mystical antics without too much needless exposition, and anchored by Hemsworth and Hiddleston’s comedic chemistry.Ragnarok has a fantastic director: New Zealand’s Taika Waititi. Definitely infinity stones will be seen.

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know


Demonetization is basically the act of stripping a currency unit. Demonetization becomes necessary whenever there is a change of national currency. The old unit of currency is recalled and needs to be submitted to the banks and the government offices.  Demonetization results in change of denominations, structure or complete scrapping of the currency.

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

Recently the INDIAN government under the directions of Prime Minister of India called off 1000 and 500 notes and introduce a new denomination of 2000 and a complete new note of 500 leading to demonetization.

Other countries where demonetization occured – THE SOVIET UNION, GHANA, BRITAIN and many more.

Indian 500 and 1000 Rupee note and demonetization:

The demonetization of ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes was a step taken by the Government of India on 8 November 2016 while the PM was addressing the nation, ceasing the usage of all ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series as a form of legal tender in India from 9 November 2016.

New series of 500 and 1000 denominations

As per the sources and media spokesperson, only six persons knew that such a thing was going to happen and the RBI governor wasn’t among them. It is said that the RBI governor was sent a letter addressed by the PM of India a day before if they were ready to do so i.e. on November 9 , 2016.

Modi declared circulation of all ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi Series as invalid. He announced the issuance of new ₹500 and ₹2000 banknotes of the Mahatma Gandhi New Series in exchange for the old banknotes.

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas


This is not the first time in the Indian history that the demonetization has occurred.

History of Demonetization in INDIA:

Previously too India has witnessed Demonetization.

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

In January 1946, banknotes of 1000 and 10000 rupee were withdrawn. New notes of 1000, 5000 and 10000 rupee were introduced in 1954. The Janata Party coalition government had again demonetized banknotes of 1000, 5000 and 10000 rupee on 16 January 1978 as a means to curb counterfeit money and black money.

Initial guidelines by the RBI

The RBI laid down a detailed procedure for the exchange of the demonetized banknotes. Following are the key points:

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

  • Citizens will have until 30 December 2016 to tender their old banknotes at any office of the RBI or any bank branch and credit the value into their respective bank accounts.

After December 31, 2016 people would need to submit some type of affidavit stating that the money is white and varying on the amount of money submitted the person is eligible to pay a fine and may be sentenced to jail in case he is found guilty of keeping money or tax evading.

  • Currently withdrawal limit from the ATM is Rs. 24000 per day but with a maximum cash withdrawal limit for a week.
  • The old banknotes can be exchanged by filling up a requisition form along with a valid ID proof.

The Indian government was very clear with the guidelines as it kept on modifying these guidelines as per the need, as per the money available in ATM.

Exceptions in case of the Demonetization era of the INDIA:

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

Initially, Exceptions were given to petrol, CNG, and gas stations, government hospitals, railway and airline booking counters, state government recognized dairies and ration stores and crematorium to accept the old ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes until 24 November 2016.

International airports were also instructed to facilitate an exchange of notes amounting to a total value of ₹5000 for foreign tourists and out-bound passengers.

They had to submit an affidavit after  December 31, 2016proving that their money is white.

A heavy fine would be imposed on the person failing to show the submitted money as white.


  • SUPPORT – Several bankers appreciated the move in the sense that it would help curb black money. Businessmen also supported the move adding that it would also accelerate e-commerce. The public too supported this move at a large-scale.

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

  • CRITICISM – CM of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee called the new declaration “drama”. Former World Bank Chief Economist, Kaushik Basu, said that the ‘damage’ is likely to be much greater than any possible benefits. It has also been noted in the media that black money holders keep only a small fraction of their ill-gotten wealth as cash. Hence targeting this cash may not be a successful strategy.

  • India’s EX Prime Minister – Dr. Manmohan Singh had said it might seem like a great step in the short-term but the results would be different in the future.

  • All the opponents came together as one to fight against this decision.
  • BSP leader Mayawati too had different opinions and on her birthday did a press conference.
  • Reaction of the Indian People:

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

A difference of opinion was seen in the citizens of India. Some people stated this decision as a strong step against the black money fight which other governments before them failed to do so. A different group of people stated that the implementation wasn’t done as it was needed. It was a failure of the Modi government.


  • Cash Rush – The scarcity of cash due to demonetization led to chaos, faced difficulties to exchange them as endless lines outside banks and ATM across India, became a daily routine for millions of people waiting to deposit or exchange the ₹500 and ₹1000 banknotes since 9 November.
  • Effect on illegal activities – The move was seen to fight corruption, many people did surrender their black money. Another impact was on terror-  funding in Pak and Kashmiri Militants.
  • Cashless Economy – Modi aimed towards digitalization in INDIA. On the eve of 31st December Modi restated his decision of making INDIA a cashless economy. Online transactions were seen on a large scale after the demonetization.
  • PAYTMOnline mobile wallets came up and PAYTM was one who made huge profits. In case of visits to Dominos, McDonalds, KFC etc you would find “PAYTM accepted here” on the entrance door. A larger population of people were seen moving onto PAYTM wallets and doing transactions via PAYTM.

Evasion of Demonetization:

People still found a way to evade the demonetization or evading the submission of black money and these were:

Demonetization in India: Everything You Need To Know | Shubhideas

  • Gold purchases

After demonetization, long queues of people were seen shopping gold.

  • Municipal and local taxes

Many people who evaded tax, paid of the dues with fines.

  • Multiple bank transactions

It was seen that people were doing multiple bank transactions.

  • Dumping

Many people instead of simply surrendering their money , they preferred dumping them.

Yet the fight against the black money is on even after the Demonetization and everyone needs to do his/her bit. Switching to cash-less economy or making online transactions won’t harm.
