Driving Safety Tips

Driving Safety Tips


Seat belt is made for the safety of a person using vehicle in case of an accident. It saves the person from a grievous injury. Regular use of safety belt may save a person at the time of crises. In case of sudden stop the vehicle, driver may go forward and hit the steering wheel or windscreen may cause a severe injury. This goes for everyone in your vehicle.

The Science of Seat Belts

The modern three-point automotive seat belt was the brainchild of Swedish aircraft engineer Nils Ivar Bohlin, who, ironically, spent the early years of his career designing aircraft ejector seats. Nevertheless, Bohlin's invention - a three-point combination lap and diagonal belt positioned across the pelvis and rib cage - has saved thousands of lives since its introduction in 1959.

Seat belts today, of course, are an accepted part of routine vehicle operation for millions of drivers and passengers. Unfortunately, millions of other vehicle occupants continue to put their lives at risk by ignoring these critical restraint systems.

Seat belts are a marvel of complexity and simplicity. They combine Bohlin's strong three-point harness with a relatively simple pendulum and ratchet mechanism that locks the belt in sudden-stop situations. This design helps improve the comfort of belt wearers, as the belt is not locked in position under normal operation.

As with any safety system, however, seat belt performance is dependent on proper use and fit. If the belt is not positioned correctly on the vehicle occupant's body, it can fail to provide adequate safety in the event of a collision or rapid deceleration

Using cell phone is dangerous while driving the vehicle to the driver as well as public on the road. It is distract the attention of driver, which is most dangerous. It is an offence.


Helmet is not made for fashion. The use of the helmet is not to impress others while riding two wheeler. It is most important safety gear, which saves the head injury and brake the scull in case of a serious accident. Helmet is must for safety of a two wheeler rider.


Be in "Q" at the bus stop. Enter in the bus from the rear door and get down from front door. Always stand in one side and keep a passage for the conductor. Offer your seat for the senior citizen or woman. Take exact change for the fare. Hold firmly while traveling, to avoid a serious accident if bus stops suddenly. Do not take out your hands out of the bus. if you find any unattended item in the bus, report to conductor or driver immediately.


* Where there is a footpath, you must use it.
* Where there is no footpath, walk on the extreme right of the road to face oncoming traffic. Walk in single row and be constantly alert.
* Do not walk on cycle tracks.
* Do not step onto the road without ensuring that it is safe to do so.
* Do not loiter on the roadway and be particularly careful at blind corners.
* Before you step on the road stop at the kerb. Look right, if clear look left, if all clear look right again. If all clear, cross and keeping a careful lookout all the time.
* Where available always use pedestrian crossings, central refuges, subways and footbridges.
* Do not step out from behind a stationary vehicle or slow moving bus or cars without making sure the road is clear.
* Do not cross the road diagonally. Always cross at right angles. Walk briskly. Do not panic and run.
* Watch your step on wet and slippery roads. A fast moving vehicle will take longer to halt on a wet road.
* When crossing at cross-road look out for vehicles coming round the corner.
* Do not cross until you have the "Cross Now Signal" or "Green Signal", even then look out for the rash driver.
* Do not cross the road until the policeman directing traffic beckons you to cross. The signals given by a policeman controlling traffic must be obeyed.
7. Never place the shoulder belt under your arm. Broken ribs can cause serious internal injuries.
8. The back seat is the safest place for children to ride. Child passenger safety seats should be properly installed in the middle of the back seat.
9. Secure loose articles throughout the car. Flying objects during a collision can cause injuries.
10. Be sure the car is in good mechanical condition. Check tires, hoses, fluid levels and batteries.
11. In case of an emergency during a long road trip, keep a first aid kit, a blanket and some food and water stored in your trunk.
12. Allow plenty of time for the trip. Be prepared to stop frequently for rest, food, exercise and restroom visits if you are traveling with children.
13. Provide children with a new activity (coloring book, crossword puzzle book, cassette tape) to keep them entertained.
14. Always STOP to rest if you feel tired. Don't wait for your chin to hit your chest. Also, stop if you feel agitated or are near an aggressive driver to give yourself a minute to calm down.
15. Consider refueling when you are down to 1/4 a tank of petrol in case the next petrol pump is far away.
16. If driving, sit at least 12 inches from the steering wheel to give the air bag room to inflate.
17. Obey the speed limits. Speeding tickets are expensive. Speeding also can cost us our lives.
18. Avoid becoming distracted while driving. Common distractions include talking on a cell phone, eating and applying make-up.
19. Do not drive under the influence of certain medications (read the warning label or ask your doctor). NEVER drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
20. If you have vehicle trouble, pull onto the shoulder of the road away from traffic. No one in your family should accept a ride with a stranger. Drinking & Driving
Avoid driving after drinking. Let someone else like your friend / spouse drive the car if you have been drinking. Pursue the drunk driver to let someone else drive the vehicle.
• Cell Phones Studies show that using a cell phone can put your driving safety at risk. Learn how to use your phone safely.

o Place calls when you are not moving or before pulling into traffic.
o When available, use a hands free device.
o Position your wireless phone within easy reach.
o Do not take notes or look up phone numbers while driving.
o Do not engage in stressful or emotional conversations that may be distracting.
o Use your wireless phone to help others in emergencies.
o Get to know your wireless phone and its features such as speed dial and redial.
• Accidents

When safe driving habits fail, accidents happen. Car accidents can be very stressful -- it can be difficult to think clearly. Read the tips below to learn what you should do to minimize the damage after a car accident.

o Make sure you and your passengers are OK. Move as far off the roadway as possible, but stay at the scene of the accident. Warn oncoming traffic by activating your hazard warning lights or setting flares.

o Call the police to report the accident.
o Contact your Insurance Company / Agent if you are insured or your vehicle is insured.
o Do not admit fault for the car accident or discuss the car accident with anyone other than the police and your claims representative. Stay calm and resist the temptation to get upset or argue with the other driver, even if you believe the car accident was his or her fault.

o Exchange vital information with the other driver involved in the car accident. Write down the name, address, phone number and license numbers for all drivers and witnesses, particularly those who were not riding in a vehicle involved in the accident. Ask for the insurance companies and policy numbers for drivers involved in the car accident.

• Road Rage

o Avoid taking more than one parking space, Avoid parking in a disabled space (if you are not disabled)

o Avoid stopping in the road to talk with a pedestrian or other driver

• Safety Equipment
Seat belts, air bags, and head restraints can keep you safe when used properly.

Air Bag Safety

Automotive air bags are supplemental passenger restraint systems designed to cushion the contact between a vehicle passenger and the steering wheel, dashboard and, in some cases, vehicle doors. Air bags do not restrain the passenger in the seat, nor do they prevent backseat passengers from being thrown forward during a front-end collision.

Clearly, air bags save lives. Unfortunately, some drivers assume that air bag safety reduces the importance of seat belts. This simply isn't true. In fact, the lack of seat restraint can actually reduce the air bag safety due to the increase in the potentially damaging impact force between the vehicle occupant and the deploying air bag.

Remember, air bags are deployed with explosive power. To practice good air bag safety, place children 12 years and under in the rear seat, with seat belts securely fastened.
Here are some tips to ensure that your belts provide the safety you and your passengers deserve

Always wear your seat belt, and insist that your passengers do the same. One non-restrained passenger can seriously injure others in the vehicle.

Seat belts help prevent internal injuries by spreading the force of a collision across two of the human body's strongest areas - the pelvis and upper chest. To ensure the proper distribution of force, the lap belt should be positioned across the upper thighs, and the diagonal belt across the chest.

Never slip the diagonal belt behind your body; the lap belt alone cannot prevent you from being thrown forward and out of the vehicle. The lap belt also must be used at all times. Without this restraint, your body would simply be thrown under the diagonal belt and into the dashboard or steering wheel.

Make sure your belt fits snugly against your body; if it is too loose, you could be injured by being thrown against the belt itself. If your seat belts don't seem to operate correctly, or you cannot adequately adjust them, return the car to a dealership or qualified repair shop for assistance.

If your vehicle is fitted only with lap belts (pre-1974 models), contact a dealership for an upgrade to a three-point harness. Aftermarket kits are available for many vehicle makes and models.

Tips for safe driving with your kids

• Child Passenger Safety

Car seats, seat belts, and other devices are essential to safe driving with your kids. Learn more about what you can do to keep your kids safe in case of an accident.

Child safety seats and seat belts are essential for protecting your children in case of a car accident. However, these child passenger safety devices must be used properly to be effective. As a driver, you are responsible for child passenger safety -- we can help you understand how to keep kids safe while driving.


On average, seven children age 14 and under are killed in traffic accidents each day. (Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) Non-use of seat belts is a conscious, albeit life-threatening, decision by thousands of adult drivers and passengers. Unfortunately, children often are the unwitting victims of this behavior. In fact, research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that when a driver is unbuckled, children in the same car are properly restrained less than 25 percent of the time. A recent survey of 423 grade school children conducted by Progressive found that 67 percent of children surveyed said they learn driving safety "from a parent." Only 47 percent of children surveyed, however, said that the first thing their parents do when getting into a car is put on a seat belt. Facts such as these have led Progressive to support programs like Operation ABC Mobilization: America Buckles Up Children, which proposes stronger enforcement nationwide of child passenger safety laws. Progressive also has developed television Public Service Announcements calling attention to the importance of the use of proper child safety restraints.

Seat belt tips for child passenger safety:

All children age 12 and under should be buckled up in the rear seat of the vehicle.

Children should ride in an appropriate child safety seat until 8 years of age.

Holding a child in your lap provides no additional safety. An unrestrained 10-pound infant would instantly be ripped from an adult's arms in a 30-mph collision.

Don't place a single belt over yourself and a child. The child could be crushed by your body in the case of a front-end collision.

A seat belt must be adjusted to the size of a child. As is the case with adults, the lap belt should cross the child's upper thighs and the diagonal belt should cross the upper chest and a point between the neck and the center of the shoulder.

Children should continue to use a belt-positioning booster until the lap/shoulder belts fit properly and the child's legs are long enough to bend at the edge of the seat.

Child safety seat tips:

Safety requirements change as children grow. Learn the basic facts for proper use of child safety seats.

Infants - From birth to one year or 20 lbs., infants should be placed in rear-facing child safety seats in the back seat of the car. The harness straps should be at or below shoulder level.

Toddlers - From one year/20 lbs., to 40 lbs., toddlers should be placed in forward-facing child safety seats in the back seat of the car. The harness straps should be at or above the shoulders.

Young children - Children over 40 lbs., but less than 4'9" in height should be placed in forward-facing booster seats in the back seat of the car. Lap belts should fit low and tight across the thights, and shoulder belts should fit snugly across the chest and shoulder to prevent abdominal injuries.

Child passenger safety facts:

Safety education is working. Car accident fatalities for childern under five dropped from 706 in 2000 to 668 in 2001. The number of fatalities for childern ages five to 15 dropped from 2,105 to 1,990 in 2001. (Source: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration)

Child safety seats save lives. Correct use of a child safety seat can reduce the risk of accident-related injuries and deaths by more than 70 percent. (Source: NHTSA)

Seat belts can ensure child passenger safety. Six out of 10 childern who die in passenger vehicle crashes are unbelted. (Source: NHTSA)

• Teen Drivers

Teen drivers have the highest crash risk of any age group. Per mile traveled, they have the highest involvement rates in all types of crashes, from those involving only property damage to those that are fatal. The problem is worst among 18 year-olds, who have the most limited driving experience and an immaturity that often results in risk-taking behind the wheel.


Eighteen-year-old drivers have a higher rate of crashes in which excessive speed is a factor.

Single-vehicle crashes

More of 18 year-olds' fatal crashes involve only the teen's vehicle. Typically these are high-speed crashes in which the driver lost control.


Eighteen year-olds' fatal crashes are more likely to occur when other teenagers are in the car. The risk increases with every additional passenger.

Night driving

This is a high-risk activity for beginners. Per mile driving, the nighttime fatal crash rate for 18 year-olds is about twice as high as during the day.

Low belt use

Teenagers generally are less likely than adults to use safety belts.

What Parents of Teenagers Can Do

When parents understand the risk factors involved in letting 18 year-olds get behind the wheel, they can act to improve the situation for their own children.

Don't rely solely on driver education

High school driver education may be the most convenient way to learn driving skills, but it doesn't produce safer drivers. Poor skills aren't always to blame for teens' crashes. Their attitudes and decision-making skills matter more. Young people naturally tend to rebel, and peer pressure influences them more than advice from adults. They often think they're immune to harm, which is why they don't use safety belts as much and why they deliberately seek thrills like speeding. Training and education don't change these tendencies.

Restrict night driving

Most nighttime fatal crashes among young drivers occur between 9 PM and midnight, so teenagers shouldn't be driving much later than 9 PM. The problem isn't just that late-night driving requires more skill. Outings late at night tend to be recreational. In these circumstances, even teens who usually follow all the rules can be easily distracted or encouraged to take risks.

Restrict passengers

Teen passengers in a vehicle can distract a beginning driver and/or lead to greater risk-taking. Because young drivers often transport their friends, there's a teen passenger problem as well as a teen driver problem. Almost two of every three teen passenger deaths (62 percent) occur in crashes with a teen driver. While night driving with passengers is particularly lethal, many fatal crashes with teen passengers occur during the day. The best policy is to restrict teen passengers, especially multiple teens, all the time.

Supervise practice driving

Take an active role in helping your teenager learn how to drive. Plan a series of practice sessions in a wide variety of situations, including night driving. Give beginners time to work up to challenges like driving in heavy traffic or on the freeway. Supervised practice should be spread over at least six months and continue even after a teenager graduates from a learner's permit to a restricted or full license.

Remember you are a role model

New drivers learn a lot by example, so practice safe driving. Teens with crashes and violations often have parents with poor driving records.

Require safety belt use

Don't assume that belt use when you're in the car with your 15 year-old means belts will be used all the time, especially when your child is out with peers. Remember that belt use is lower among teenagers than older people. Insist on belts all the time.

Prohibit driving after drinking

Make it clear that it's illegal and highly dangerous for a teenager to drive after drinking alcohol or using any other drug. While alcohol isn't a factor in most crashes of 18 year-old drivers, even small amounts of alcohol are impairing for teens.

Choose vehicles for safety, not image
Teenagers should drive vehicles that reduce their chances of a crash and offer protection in case they do crash. For example, small cars don't offer the best protection in a crash. Avoid cars with performance images that might encourage speeding. Avoid trucks and sport utility vehicles - the smaller ones, especially, are more prone to roll over.

• Be prepared

Often, we don't think about what we need in an emergency situation until we're in one. Whether you have a flat tire or another roadside emergency, you should have the following items in your car:

o Spare tire (be sure to have it checked each time you have your tires rotated)

o Jack, Scissors, Tool box with screwdrivers and wrenches, Small hammer, Jumper cables

o Car Owner's Manual

o Blanket

o Flares

o Fuses

o Snack food

o Sealant for small leaks in tires

o Duct tape

o Fire extinguisher

o Empty Petrol can, Can of motor oil

o Portable radio with spare batteries

o Emergency phone numbers of family and friends

o Insurance information

o Car registration

o Flash light with spare batteries

o First aid kit

o Bottled water, Pre-moistened towelettes

o Tire pressure gauge

o Paper and Pen or pencil

o Window scraper for ice

o Cellular phone

o Reflective vest


:-Driving without effective driving license

:-Driving unregistered vehicles

:-Driving without permit or with breach of conditions attached to it

:-Driving under the influence of drink and drugs

:-Rash and negligent driving

:-Non payment of any type of tax .

Benefits Of Yoga

Yoga through meditation works remarkably to achieve harmony and helps the mind work in synchronization with the body. How often do we find that we are unable to perform our activities properly and in a satisfying manner because of the confusions and conflicts in our mind weigh down heavily upon us? Stress is the number one suspect affecting all parts of our physical, endocrinal and emotional system. And with the help of yoga this things can be corrected.

At the physical level, yoga and its cleansing practices have proven to be extremely effective for various disorders. Listed below are just some of the benefits of yoga that you can get. Benefits of Yoga

1: Yoga is known to increase flexibility; yoga has postures that trigger the different joints of the body. Including those joints that are not acted upon with regular exercises routines.

2: Yoga also increases the lubrication of joints, ligament and tendons. The well-researched yoga positions exercise the different tendons and ligaments of the body. It has also been found that the body which may have started doing yoga being a rigid one may experience a quite remarkable flexibility in the end on those parts of the body which have not been consciously worked upon.

3: yoga also massages all organs of the body. Yoga is perhaps the only exercise that can work on through your internal organs in a thorough manner, including those that hardly get externally stimulated during our entire lifetime.

4: Yoga acts in a wholesome manner on the various body parts. This stimulation and massage of the organs in turn benefits us by keeping away disease and providing a forewarning at the first possible instance of a likely onset of disease or disorder. One of the far-reaching benefits of yoga is the uncanny sense of awareness that it develops in the practitioner of an impending health disorder or infection. This in turn enables the person to take pre-emptive corrective action

5: yoga offers a complete detoxification of the body. It gently stretches the muscles and joints as we;; as massaging the various organs, yoga ensures the optimum blood supply to various parts of the body. This helps in the flushing out of toxins from every nook and cranny of your body as well as providing nourishment up to the last point. This leads to benefits such as delayed ageing, energy and a remarkable zest for life.

6: yoga is also an excellent way to tone your muscles. Muscles which have been flaccid and weak are stimulated repeatedly to shed excess fats and flaccidity. But these enormous physical benefits are just a "side effect" of this powerful practice. What yoga does is harmonize the mind with the body and these results in real quantum benefits. It is now an open secret that the will of the mind has enabled people to achieve extraordinary physical feats, which proves beyond doubt the mind and body connection. In fact yoga = meditation, because both work together in achieving the common goal of unity of mind, body and spirit which can lead to an experience of eternal bliss that you can only feel through yoga. The meditative practices through yoga help in achieving an emotional balance through detachment. This in turn creates a remarkable calmness and a positive outlook, which also has tremendous benefits on the physical health of the body.

Diwali - a Spectrum of Spectacular Illumination of Lights and Life's Festivities

Diwali, a diminutive form of Deepavali, etymologically means a row of lights ('Deep'- light and 'Avali'-a row). Hence it is festival of lights. The name Diwali originates from a tradition involving lighting small ceramic oil lamps, called diyas. Diwali that is on the 15th day of the month of Kartik is a holiday and is celebrated with fervor and gaiety. Indian communities float diyas in rivers and streams and place them outside temples. Being a New Year day all financial transactions remain closed on this day. Lord Ganesh, the elephant-headed god, the symbol of auspiciousness and wisdom, and Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity and wealth, are worshipped during Diwali. Traditional sweets called naivedya are made and shared and songs are sung to honor the goddess.

In each of the simple traditions and rituals at Diwali there is a tale of significance and credo. Apart from the celebration of Rama's return to Ayodhya, historically too, the origin of Diwali can be traced back to ancient India, when it was probably an important harvest festival.Legend holds that after the goddess Parvati played dice with her husband she declared that anyone who gambled during Diwali would prosper throughout the upcoming year. Today, families gather and play cards, dice and other games.

India is known throughout the world for it's celebratory fervor.Celebration of Diwali begins from Dusshera, which comes twenty days before Diwali. Lord Rama destroyed Ravana on this day and hence it is celebrated as a day of victory. Brilliantly decorated tableaux and processions depicting various facets of Rama's life are taken out and scenes from his life enacted out in a popular form of drama called Ramlila.

Diwali is a festival of joy, splendor, brightness and happiness. It is t celebrated with great enthusiasm by all Indians all over the world. The uniqueness of this festival is its harmony of five varied philosophies, with each day to a special thought or ideal.At a metaphysical level, Deepawali is a festival s, the latter is destroyed and reduced to ashes by fireworks is the belief of the people. On Diwali day, everywhere in India, at dusk when darkness unfolds itself, one can see a spectacular illumination of tiny flickering lamps adorning in rows - at homes, buildings and streets. People visit the places of their relatives and friends to wish them on the occasion and exchange gifts. Feasts are arranged and gaily-dressed men, women and children go to temples and fairs, visit friends and relatives. Diwali is also celebrated outside India mainly in Guyana, Fiji, Malaysia, Nepal, Mauritius, Myanmar, Singapore, Srilanka, Trinidad and Tobago, Britain, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Africa, and Australia among the Hindus world over. Places as far as Southern America have record of celebrating Diwali.

Uniting all members of the community, young and old, rich or poor, the lighting of the lamps represents a way of paying obeisance to God for attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and valoured fame.

However, Diwali is a holy tradition and cannot to be put in the shade by the lights.

Diwali Story

Diwali Festival is celebrated all over India on October. Normally India is having thousands of local festivals according to local culture and traditions. India is truly a diversified country with multiplies languages and different cultures in various parts of India. Since the Indian civilization is one of the oldest and evolved from different parts of India and joined the festivals very different from one place to another.

Diwali is the Universal Festival of India:

If we study the Festivals of India, we can see lot of variations in the festivals from south to north and east to west. In Kerala you can find onam, in Tamilnadu you can find Pongal,Telegu new year in Andhra Pradesh, Pohela Baishakh in Bengal, Baisakhi Festival for Sikhs etc. Almost all of this festival is totally unknown to states than it is celebrating. In addition, we can see the same festival is celebrated in different parts of the country on same day with different legend. In addition, the celebration will be different. However, the Diwali (Deepavali) is celebrated across the India in every state irrespective of culture and Languages. This makes Deepavali as a universal festival of India.

Deepavali the festival of lights:

Diwali is not the original or correct name of this festival. The correct name of the festival is Deepavali (I think only in Kerala still they use the correct name) and the word Diwali is a short form of Deepavali.Deepam means is the flame of lamp in almost all languages in India. Therefore, as the name suggests on deepavali day the houses will be celebrated with lighted lamps all over India. The temples also will be decorated with lamps and will have a divine look for Diwali. Therefore, as the name suggests we can see on Deepavali day that all houses are decorated with lighted lamps in all over India.Another Tradition is Diwali sweets, which will be prepared and distributed to nears, and dears by every family.

The Story of Diwali:

As normal to other Indian festival diwali also got more than one legend attached to it. As normal in Indian festival diwali also point to Hindu Religion.

  1. Lord Rama returning to Ayodya:-The most famous legend behind the celebrations of Diwali is about Return of Lord Sri Rama (Prince of Ayodya) to Ayodhya after Winning Rama-Ravana war. Lord Ram was staying in forest with his wife Sitadevi for 14 years to full fill his father's Promise given to one of his wife. At that time The Demon king Ravana of Sri lanka has kidnapped the sitadevi. Therefore, Sri Ramachandra conducted the war with the help of monkey soldiers and won the war. He returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita and younger brother Lakshmana after completing the promise. To celebrate the joy of this occasion people of Ayodhya decorated their home with lamps to show the love and affection to their Prince. Therefore, from there people of Ayodya started decorating their home with deepam on that day of every year.

  2. Incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi: Once upon a Time The Devas and demons the churning of the ocean, which is known as 'Samudra Mathan' by the demons on one side and 'Devas' on the other side. Samudra mathan was done in order to extract 'Amruth' from underneath of sea, which will help you to live forever. People believe that Goddess Lakshmi (of wealth and prosperity), was incarnated before Amruth from sea on samudra mathan, on the auspicious new moon day, which is 'Amavasya' of the Hindi month of Kartik.

  3. Lord Krishna Killed Narakasura: Narakasur was the demon king ruler of Pragjyotishpur, in South of Nepal. He had defeated lord Indra the king of Heaven. He stole the magnificent earrings of aditi Devi Indras Mother. Narakasura also imprisoned thousands of daughters of gods and saints. Lord Indra was a relative of Lord Krishna's one wife Sathya Bhama. Lord Krishna defeated narakasura and freed all women from his jail. To celebrate this occasion people decorated their houses with Lamps.

Gifts in Diwali Festival

While choosing Diwali gifts you have to consider the choice, temperament of the recipient and the budget. Selecting an appropriate gift for the dear ones is the most difficult task.

As far as Indians are concerned, every relation ship is important whether it is a relationship with a brother, sister, parents, friends or any other family member. A wide range of gifts are available in shops and markets which makes the Diwali even sweeter. Gifts can be offered as the recipients’ favorite sweets, dolls, cakes, cookies and bouquets. You can give traditional mouth watering Indian sweets as sweets are the most expected gift on Diwali.

Diwali gifts also include candles and candle holders, divine gifts, sculpture, patchwork, jewelry, collection and spun glass. You can also gift house hold and office decor products such as clocks, bookends, plaques, wall hanging and many more. You can also give Diwali gift hampers as they will get according to your budget. The traditional gifts on Diwali are the silver gifts and these silver gifts are available in a huge variety and with trendiest designs. Besides silver crockery items, you can also buy Lakshmi-Ganesha silver coins as Diwali gifts.

Decorative pieces are another type of gifts which people would like to receive from others. You can give decorative pieces to decorate their house on the occasion of Diwali. Other items such as chinaware, traveling bags and kitchen gadgets which have great utility value are suitable as Diwali gifts. You can also present things associated with puja such as Puja thalis, idols of gods, candles and incense sticks.

Diwali gifts for brothers should be elegant, expressive and graceful which coveys your feelings to him. Gifts such as mobile stands, floral candles and Ram Durbar and Ferrero Rocher chocolates are suitable to give as gifts for your brother. Gifts for the sisters can be embroidered bags, cotton suit and Thali and silver utensils.

Time Management and Attitude

The key to time management is not a perfect system. It is not learning to prioritize tasks like a pro. It does not even have much to do with how many tasks we have laid out in front of us. Time management inevitably boils down to a simpler, very personal, consideration. Time management is an exercise in attitude. Our personal attitude and disposition toward time and its use will have a far greater impact on our ability to manage time than any strategy ever can. So, what is the proper attitude to take toward time management? It really boils down to a three-pronged approach. First, we must stop seeing time as an enemy. Those who approach every day as if it were a race against the clock will eventually tire. Fighting time day in and day out is a Sisyphean proposition wherein no real progress is ever made. When we recognize that time is an inevitability that can never truly be conquered, we will begin to notice a shift in perspective. We will begin to approach time as a natural fact and will try to live within it successfully instead of trying to crush it or stretch it to fit their imagined needs. Second, we must begin to truly value time as a precious commodity. Time, after all, is the basis for all things. Without it, there is nothing else. It is a true prerequisite to all aspects of our lives and is the foundation upon which all of our eventual goals will be enjoyed. By recognizing the value of time, we can begin to approach it differently. Our attitude can transform from being one of disdain or distaste to one of appreciation. We will begin to infuse all of our time with a certain giddiness, excitement and appreciation that will make us more efficient and active. We will also learn to reject wasting our truly precious time. Third, we must stop seeing time management as an end in itself. Our goal should never be to create more time--time is inevitably finite. Instead, we should approach time management understanding that each minute represents a new window of opportunity and our goal should be to experience as many of those windows as possible each day. When we stop looking at time management as an end and recognize it as a means to a greater end, we can make better prioritization and other decisions. We end up with more control of our lives and can stop trying to measure our success or failure based purely upon what time we were able to finish our workday. Of course, time management strategies and systems can help us with the nuts and bolts of all of these things, but in the end, the true value obtained from time management is not just freeing up a few hours to watch a movie in the evening. It runs far deeper. By having and nurturing the right attitudes toward time, we can not only get more done, we can enjoy life more in the process.

How to achieve a good work-life balance

Finding work-life balance in today's fast-paced world is not a simple task. Spending more time at work than at home means you miss out on a rewarding personal life. Then again, if you're facing challenges in your personal life, then concentrating on your job can be difficult. Whether the problem is too much or too little focus on work, when your work life and your personal life feel out of balance, it can result in stress. *How work invades your personal life. There was a time when employees simply worked a nine to five job Monday to Friday, however, times have changed and the boundaries have blurred for many workers. The reasons for this is that people feel pressured to work longer hours to protect their jobs, also if you work for an international company you may have to be on call around the clock. We now all have the ability to work almost anywhere, from home or even whilst on holiday. If you have already experienced some of these challenges then you already know how easy it is for work to invade your personal life. *Working overtime. Sometimes working overtime is important. It's a choice you can make to adjust to a new job, or to pay the bills. If you work for a company that requires mandatory overtime, you won't be able to avoid it, but you can certainly learn to manage it. If you decide to work overtime for financial reasons or to climb the career ladder, remember to do so in moderation. Learn to say no if you are too tired, or when its affecting your health or your home life. It isn't easy to juggle the demands of a career and personal life, in fact for most people it's an ongoing challenge to reduce stress and maintain harmony in the key areas of their lives. Prioritise the tasks you need to accomplish, then do them in the order of importance. Be realistic in planning your schedule and focus on the things you know you can achieve. Develop ways to work more efficiently at home and at work. Consolidating or combining jobs may be more time effective. Most importantly try and look on the bright side of things, life, as they say, is too short. *Home Life. Allow yourself some down time at home, even if it's just an hour here and there, devote that hour to yourself. Do something relaxing like taking a bath or reading, have some fun with adult sex toys. Remember, if you're too tired, you won't be able to concentrate at work, by learning to relax you'll cope better with the demands of maintaining a good work-life balance.

*** *** LIGHTING *** ***

1) Use light translucent shades- opaque or dark shades require bigger lamps.

2) Use CFL lamps instead of flouresecnt & GLS lamps .

*** *** HEATING AND COOLING. *** ***

1) Have the ceiling insulated with at least 50mm of fibrous or foam insulation.

2) In timber framed or brick homes the walls should also be insulated. Block off any chimneys not being used - A lot of heat is lost there.

3) Unless you have full home conditioning close the doors of the room/s being heated or cooled. Doors and windows should fit well because draughts can wastea lot of energy. Close curtains to stop heat escaping.

4) Reverse cycle air-conditioners provide 2 to 2.5 times as much heat as an element type heater for the same electricity consumption.

5)Proper zoning of a house conditioned by a ducted system can cut energy consumption to a half or even third.

6) Shade windows during summer to keep sun of the glass

7) Don't leave heating or cooling appliances on when rooms are unoccupied.

8) Evaporative coolers are very effective when installed correctly. The operating cost of an evaporative cooler is only a fraction of that of a refrigerated unit.

9) A student can be kept warm with a 150 watt infra red lamp fitted under the desk.

10) Localized under carpet heating gives economical armchair comfort

11) People heating is more economical than space heating.-use radiators multi-heat radiant heaters, wall strip heaters ,fan heaters.

12) Electric blankets are the cheapest form of bedroom heating.

*** *** COOKING *** ***

1 Keep the door closed. Ever time you open it the temperature drop about 20 degrees (c)

2 Cook several dishes at the one time.If you are cooking small items use the frypan.

3 When cooking small quantities use one sauce pan with dividers.

4 Keep food warm at 70-80 deg(c) Higher temperatures waste electricity and over cook food.

5 Use oven heat for plate warming.

6 Use utensils with flat bottoms and well fitting lids.Make sure they cover hotplates

7 To cook vegetables the water doesn't need to be boiling furiously - a gentle simmer is enough.

8 Fan type ovens reduce cooking costs.

9 Use bright clean hotplate reflectors to send the heat upwards where it is wanted.

10 Pressure cookers can save up to 25% of power.

11 Use small appliances eg. griller,crock-pot,wok,etc for appropriate foods.

12 Thaw frozen foods before cooking - this saves about 15 minutes cooking per 450 grams (one pound).

13 A microwave is very economical for suitable functions -it is excellent for reconstituting food.

14 Don't use grill-boiler plate on top of range for utensils not large enough to cover it.

15 Don't boil water on a hotplate - use an electric kettle

16 Make sure your oven door seals properly.

*** *** REFRIGERATION *** ***

1) Select a fridge that uses waste heat for defrosting etc. These fridges are usually cheaper to operate.

2) Buy the size you need , extra capacity uses extra power

3) If you already have a chest or upright freezer buy an "all though " refrigerator instead of a fridge freezer combination.

4) Defrost before the ice build up is 1 cm thick.

5) Open the door only when necessary

6) Make sure the door seals well. If a piece of paper will slide easily between the cabinet and the door seal is not good enough

7) Keep dust and fluff brushed off the coils on the back or bottom of the fridge.

8) Put the fridge in a well ventilated position.

9) Place your fridge away from direct sunlight or any source of heat. Don't put hot food into a fridge or freezer.

*** *** CLOTHES DRYING *** ***

1) Use solar energy to dry your clothes instead of using dryer .it costs nothing.

2) Operate your dryer using the fan alone. Only switch the heater on if it is really necessary.Vent the dryer outside the house and don't let lint block the vent.

3) never overload or underload the dryer - you get most economical operation with the correct load

4) Switch off when the clothes are dry enough - over drying makes them feel harsh and waste electricity

5) Tumble dryers are more effective than cabinet dryers

*** *** WATER HEATING *** ***

1) Off peak low pressure storage heaters are generally the cheapest overall.

2) Water restrictors and low flow shower nozzles will help to save water.

3) Insulate hot water pipes from storage heaters for at least a metre from the heater as heat can be conducted along these pipes and lost to the atmosphere.

4) Install a storage heater of 125 liters or more to run off peak tariff - which is about half the normal rate.

5) Normally you will use less water for shower than bath

6) Fill your electric kettle or jug from the cold tap.Running off a lot of cold water from the hot pipes is wasteful and expensive

7) Don't have you hot water set too 70 deg (c) is usually hot enough . Otherwise it costs more to heat the water and it loses more heat while being stored.

*** *** ACCESSORIES *** ***

1) Dimmers save power and enable you to obtain pleasant changes of mood in your lighting.

2) Use plug-in timers to control such things as fryingpans, crockpots,radiators.lights and air conditioners

*** *** CLOTHES AND WASHING *** ***

Don't buy a large machine if you don't need it. For the occasional big wash an extra cycle or two is cheaper than under using a large washer

Adjust the water level to economically wash a partial load.Otherwise it is better to wait until you have a full load.But don't overload your machine

Your washer may have features than can save your money.Soak cycles remove stubborn stains in wash cycle. Suds savers allow you to re use hot water

Use correct type of detergent and cold or tepid water will wash clothes effectively

*** *** WATER HEATING *** ***

1) Off peak low pressure storage heaters are generally the cheapest overall.

2) Water restrictors and low flow shower nozzles will help to save water

3) Insulate hot water pipes from storage heaters for at least a metre from the heater as heat can be conducted along these pipes and lost to the atmosphere

4) Install a storage heater of 125 liters or more to run off peak tariff - which is about half the normal rate

5) Normally you will use less water for shower than bath

6) Fill your electric kettle or jug from the cold tap.Running off a lot of cold water from the hot pipes is wasteful and expensive

7) Don't have you hot water set too 70 deg (c) is usually hot enough . Otherwise it costs more to heat the water and it loses more heat while being stored


1) Use a good local light near the machine . It is more effective and more efficient than a large central light. Keep overhead lights & fans in the plant in off condition whenever not required / during lunch breaks & shift ending. This saves substantial amount of bill

2)Don't allow dripping water taps .Sixty drips a minutes means about @1200 litres a month go down the drain. And you have to pay for it

3) Dont allow the leaking air pipe lines. This causes the air compressor to run for doing nothing . And finally you have to pay for it.

4) Use CFL lamps . they use about a quarter of electricity used by ordinary florescent lamps and they last about eight times as long. They can be switched on and off as often as you need without affecting operating cost.

5) Good lighting means avoiding glare and gloom by using the right amount of light in the right way. Avoid using the overhead lights in day time . Simple Transparent sheets give enough natural light

6) Use personal fans and ceiling fans for relief from hot weather instead of using Air conditioners . Fans cost much less to run than air conditioners

7) Many air- conditioning systems operate at 22 deg (c). You will still be comfortable if you set the control for 24-25 deg (c) in summer. and 18-19 deg (c) in winter and you will use a lot less electricity

8 )If you operate Air conditioner than leave room conditioner "fresh air " and "exhaust air " controls in the closed positions unless you want to freshen the room air. Switch off the Air conditioner when you are off the rooms

9) Set fan at high speed for a room conditioner to work most efficiently

10) See that air- conditioner filters and condenser coils are kept clean.

11) Optimisation of time for switching on the heating & requiremnt of cooling water for plant trials

12) Cost of Running DG Set can be saved by proper decisions for plant trials
