Who was Alexander the Great| The Essay Blog

By |August 6th, 2020|

History is all about the study of great men. Now how do you define great? Some were called the great because of their accomplishments, others for their reputes or legacy, and many for their legends of courage and bravery. This essay is about a man-Alexander the Great- who was called great because he gained all the above three.

 Alexander III of Macedonia got famous with the tag ‘The great’ instead of his real full name.  He was born in 365 BCE to a king known as Philip the Second. Alexander was tutored by one of the best philosophers of the ancient […]

If Every Man Would Sweep His Own Doorstep, the City Would soon be Clean

By |August 5th, 2020|

‘You have got to clean your own house first before you tell other people that they aren’t doing it right’ – Dan Webster

The above phrase is simple in speaking but deep in its meaning. It is not only talking about cleaning a person’s house or making the area or city cleaner but it is stressing on the importance of self-help. It is a common realization that a person who cannot help his own self can never help others. The above sentence ‘If Every Man Would Sweep His Own Doorstep, the City Would soon be Clean’ […]

Compassion Is the Antidote for all Sickness

By |August 4th, 2020|

‘Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace’ Albert Schweitzer,

When was the last time you felt at peace by doing injustice to someone? Hard to remember right, because there is no way that you feel at ease by hurting others. Human is selfish. He might hurt others for his own interest and goals. He might pretend that he does not care but every time he hurts someone, he will feel irritated and complexed without understanding. To further move on with the essay, […]

Peer Pressure In Today’s World

By |July 24th, 2020|

Ever heard about Johari Window Model? If not then you definitely should. The kind of world (fast, competitive, artificial, and technological) we are living in today, it has become very important that we understand ourselves. In the world where every person is battling one way or the other, if there is somebody who can help you understand and overcome the battle, it is you yourself. Talking about the Johari Window Model, it is a system specifically made to help people better understand their relationship with their own selves. In 1955 two American psychologists Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham introduced a […]

Democracy Is A Culture Rather Than A Process

By |July 18th, 2020|

The word democracy is not as common in its meaning as it is as a process today. The term that first got originated in the 5th century in Athens, is being used in so many parts of the world today with great pride and esteem. The word gets defined differently by different people but the majority explains it in words of Abraham Lincoln, ‘Government of the people by the people for the people’.  The involvement of people in this method is what makes it different from other forms of rulings.

The definition of democracy in its easiest form can be […]

Lack of Discipline is the national disaster

By |October 20th, 2019|

History has never provided us with an example of a nation or an individual who flourished with an undisciplined lifestyle.  The developing countries see the developed nations with amazement wondering how they have managed to become a symbol of respect and attraction. Crediting the success of most peaceful nations like Iceland, Norway, or Denmark to the government only would be an unjustified thing to do. No matter how much rules the government enforces on its citizens to follow, one can never grow unless and until he adopts them as disciplines.

Just like an aimless life that destroys individuals, undisciplined […]

Take the Stress Out of Starting a New School Year

By |September 12th, 2019|

For some students, it’s the need to get good grades. For others, it’s the homework. There’s also the pressure to be cool and fit in.

Let There be more Light at the Corridors of Worship Places

By |June 17th, 2019|

The critics of faith have been arguing that religion has harmed the world more than benefiting it.  Yes, it’s true that many of the major wars on the earth have been fought in the defense of religion as the famous Battle of Badr and Battle of Uhud in Islam or the Crusades in Christianity but relating the modern chaos to religion is not right. The difference between the old wars and the current is a matter of intention.

Muhammad (PBUH) fought not only in the name of religion but also against injustice, dishonesty, and oppression. Through the conquest of Makah, […]

Brains, Like Hearts, Go Where They Are Appreciated

By |January 29th, 2019|

Stephen R. Covey once beautifully wrote;

“Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.”

This is the hard reality of life that man forgets bad experiences sooner or later but not bad words. Words hold such a power that leaves a long-lasting effect on the listener. If they are good, they will motivate the person to do more and if they are bad they will make him think over it for hours and months or years. In […]
