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 […]

There comes a time to put aside principles and do what’s right

By |September 12th, 2019|

‘What if’- a word that comes out of a person’s mouth abruptly when he thinks about the consequences of something he is about to do. Equally, this word has been used by humans after things turned out opposite for them. At these kinds of moments, this word depicts nothing but their infinite regret and fear. Many a time, life puts a man in situations where nothing comes out of his mouth other than, ‘What if’. This is the time when men desire a way back and change things.

As Deborah Tannen once said,

‘We all feel wistfulness and regret about roads […]

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, […]

Globalization: A Blessing Or Threat?

By |June 13th, 2019|

The world was never this much integrated as it is today. The man of today’s era cannot imagine the world working without this interconnectedness. From economic to political to socio-cultural to technological subjects, this world is linked. With each passing minutes to hours to days to months to years, we are learning something from each other. For many, globalization has taken over the process of nationalism. If the world is being known as a global village today, then it is only through the process of globalization- mixing of everything. An ideal global village gives the picture of a community free […]
