Failure as Experience
In my opinion, we should discourage the use of the word "failure." It has been used so negatively in day-to-day life that it can only demean and demotivate people. Failure essentially means not achieving success in a particular attempt, but it can be better defined as gaining experience. Thomas Edison didn’t fail 999 times before inventing the lightbulb; he learned 999 ways not to make one.
In professional life, failure actually means accumulating experiences. When we start calling failures "experiences," we don't get demotivated or feel down. Instead, we can start again with new insights and renewed enthusiasm. Instead of asking how and why someone failed, we should ask what they learned from the experience and what their next plan is. Failures can be the best lessons and strong foundation stones upon which the palace of success can be built.

Those Amiable Souls
Yes, we are all humans, and we know how to treat people. Even today, there are those who treat others with respect and kindness, even if they haven't received the same in return. As we grow up, we realize what we've been through, but we might not take the time to reflect on how good we are. Whenever someone was dejected, we were there to help them through it. However, when people decide to change, it's not always easy, and the changes they make can sometimes hurt others' feelings. Even a small change in behavior can feel like a knife to the heart. Changes are necessary, but they should be made in a positive way, because what goes around, comes around.
Remember to keep appreciating those who care about you; otherwise, their kindness could turn into resentment. You might regret it one day if you treat people with ill intentions. Treat people well, because one day they might stand up for you. As the saying goes, "the more you give, the more you receive."

Pollution is a major problem that occurs when harmful substances get into the air, water, or surrounding environment. It can come from factories, cars, or even from the way we dispose of our trash. Pollution is harmful because it can make people and animals sick, and it can also cause changes in the weather. This is why pollution is such a serious issue.
We can reduce pollution from vehicles by reducing the number of trips we take in our cars, avoiding the burning of leaves, trash, and other materials, and by not using gas-powered lawn or garden equipment. These actions can help lower the amount of pollution we create.

The Internet of Things (IOT) refers to the network of physical objects that are embedded with sensors, software, and other technologies, allowing them to connect and exchange data with other devices and systems through the internet. These devices range from ordinary household items to industrial tools. Today, there are more than 7 billion connected IoT devices, and experts expect this number to grow from 10 billion in 2020 to 22 billion by 2025. IoT has become one of the most significant technologies of the 21st century. We can now connect everyday objects like kitchen appliances, cars, thermostats, and baby monitors to the internet via embedded devices. 
With the aid of low-cost computing, the cloud, big data, analytics, and mobile technologies, physical things can share and collect data with minimal human intervention. In this hyperconnected world, digital systems can record, monitor, and adjust each interaction between connected things. While IoT has existed for some time, advancements in cloud computing, machine learning, analytics, connectivity, and low-cost, low-power sensor technologies have made IoT more accessible and practical.

Child Labor: Robbed of Childhood
Pretty dreaming minds. No rights even to dream!!  
Sparky, glittery eyes, Supposed to work without sleep!!  
Soft little fingers, No pens! Only bricks and blood!!  
Too-short tender legs. Shaking hard to reach the estimated wage!!  
No schools, no future for others. No work, no food for you!!  
"Ban child labor," says the society. Who made you poor?  
Being born poor in this society is not your fault.  
But in this poor society, it becomes your fault!
This beautiful poem, written by 'nivi,' made me think about this two-faced society that suppresses children in extremely poor households, forcing them into child labor. Child labor involves compelling children to take on responsibilities typically meant for adults, which robs them of their childhood. It is a common issue in underdeveloped countries. In child labor, children are made to perform tasks in environments that are mentally and physically harmful, depriving them of their fundamental rights. These rights include their opportunity to enjoy their childhood, receive an education, and find peace of mind.
