Astrology’s effect on today’s modern world!!

Astrology’s effect on today’s modern world!!

I wake up on certain days hoping that my day goes well. Sometimes the day ends with me being one of the happiest people out there in the world. And on other days, well...I’m just relieved that, the worst is over. The feeling comes with a saying from a famous movie called Lion King, where Timon goes,’’you gotta put the past behind ya!”. True in many ways.

What if you could have an insight into how your day was going to be? Or say, your not sure about a certain decision and seeking the advice on what is best. People like to be told about things that give them hope. They like to be constantly reminded of how things could go well or how everything is going to be fine.

Horoscopes can do just that. With the submission of a few details of yourself that are accurate and precise, you can now get a brief summary of how your day is going to be. It may not always be the kind you expect it to be though as most of us hope only for the best. Though in some cases, people tend to do otherwise.


Researchers like Hyeongmin, Kim, Katina Kulow and Thomas Kramer have summed up a statement by saying how horoscopes played a huge role in western societies and the impact it had on a person’s decision.

In the study, subjects were given a less-desiring horoscope and were given two options to choose from-
A gratifying option of going to a party or a noble alternative of cleaning their household.

Results showed that certain individuals who felt they were in complete control of their fate did not show any hesitation in preferring to go ta a party. Even after being presented with a less-satisfying horoscope.

Curious about having a peek at your horoscope? Well go ahead and take a look!

It was observed that the people who were normally opposed to a less-pleasing horoscope were the kind who would give in to the thought process. And so wouldn’t hesitate when it came to something that pleased them.

Whereas the individuals who were more likely to believe that their fate is sealed would not think much or take any unnecessary risks. And they would normally spend the rest of their day without getting distracted.

Researchers have come to the conclusion that people who felt fate could be altered are likely to give in to a 2nd thought when they came across an unpleasing horoscope. A way of remodeling their fate. But instead, researchers have been shot with backfiring results. As people have proved to be risk-takers and are eagerly waiting to confront something as they believe that it to be the ultimate way of neutralizing their fate.

Tips on overseas education

Tips on overseas education

Education is very much global today. All the renowned universities being interlinked under the
international education organizations, students can select any country to complete their education.

There are several reasons why students move abroad for studies; it can be financial, social, status
related, professionalism etc certain countries are so backward in education and people who opt for
quality education may fly abroad.

Certain students move abroad as the job opportunities are higher aboard than the native country. Yet another group of people select a foreign nation for education because of the financial status.

The fees structure for the same course in different countries may differ largely. There are some facts and tips every student who dreams of studying abroad should consider.

Take a Look at what World Bank has to say on Education.

How to select the right college and university?

Selecting the right college or university is most important as an unwise choice may cause in irrevocable loss of money, time and energy. When you select a college or university abroad to continue your studies make sure that the university is approved worldwide or at least in the countries you are planning to work in future.

Websites, counselors etc… may help you with this regard. Make a detailed study of the
course, curricular and syllabus of the college which you are planning to enter. The fees paid once may
not be refunded which makes it impossible for a person to quit a college and join another one. Be clear about the accommodation facilities, class timings etc… before you board the flight to the country.

You can always take the help of Study loans.

Financial aids for foreign study

For a typical Indian student, foreign study can be steeply expensive as when compared with the global education costs, education India is quite cheaper. Yet people consider foreign education aiming at the possible high returns and the global exposure.

I just thought I should share this small bit of interesting fact that I learn about India.  Though the normal trend of all Indian parents is to make their child an engineer or doctor, they also look into the Rashi or rather the Horoscope of the person in question.

As per Indian culture, they believe that certain zodiac signs are exceptionally good at certain jobs. So, this would help them choose the course of education that best suits the stars. The Kundli Report says it all!

There are several options a student can rely upon for finance to purse foreign education. Family funds, bank loans, scholarships, bursaries, sponsorships etc…are the common source of income for a foreign scholar.

Many countries permit the students to work for designated hours a week. But expecting to earn from the part time work alone is a stupidity as if you fail to get a job, then you may run out for financial aids. Possessing a bank loan is good option and if you get some part time jobs the income would be sufficient to meet the living expenses.

Consider your personal interests

Selecting a renowned university and country of your dream is only secondary when certain other
personal interests are considered. Make a study of the nature of the course offered in different

For example, the same course may take different time periods in different countries. If you
can complete the course in one year in UK, moving to US where it may take two years is not advised.

See if the country is friendly with your nation and the university welcomes foreign students without
hesitation. Less complex visa processing is to be preferred as a minor issue in your permit may end up with deportation.

Fulfill the eligibility criteria before you move abroad

Each course and each country demands certain eligibility levels from every foreign student. Though, the university provides you with the student visa, be careful to cross check the demands of the country before you take the flight. Certain language certificates like TOFEL, IELTS etc… are mandatory for English speaking countries. Possess the certificates before you apply for the course in foreign universities.

Be careful that your eligibility matches perfectly with university criteria and requirements of the particular country.

Know international laws and practices

Having basis knowledge of the laws of the country you are planning to move into may help you to be
safe and hassle-free. There can arise several issues regarding the accommodation, part time job,
vacations etc… if you are not aware of the laws of the country.

Also you may be denied of certain privileges every country offers to foreign students. Know your rights as well duties as a foreign student.

Most countries offer the privilege of working for a year or two after completing the course. Availing this option may help you to attain enough work experience and also help you earn handsome income soon after completing the course.

communication and Computer engineering. 

Let us see four of these in detail:

Mechanical engineering : 

This branch of engineering is focused on design, construction, operation and maintenance of mechanical equipments like power plants, mechanical engines and all sorts of machines. A degree in mechanical engineering enables a person to pursue a job in any manufacturing unit or mechanical industry. This is one of the leading branches in engineering in India.

Can our Horoscopes play a part in our education and career?

I know there are so many to choose from. But in the midst of all this, there will be one that meets our skills, preferences and sun signs. From experience, I feel you need to look at two vitals before choosing a course for yourself or your child.

First one is:
Check your Horoscope. Not every profession meets the preference level of all zodiac signs. Choose out which star sign you belong to and then look at the most optimal careers that will fit your life. 

Second one is:
Look out for the jobs that are most in demand around the world. Check out their pay scales and also in which countries they are in high demand.

How to apply for the course of engineering?

The study of engineering comes under the technological universities in India. There are several technological universities with number of institutions functioning India. These institutes offer courses on each of the streams of the engineering for selected students. 

The students selection is happening based on competitive exams conducted by the university level, state level or college levels.
AIEEE is the entrance exam that selects the candidates according to the scores for different streams of engineering. 

Any person passes the examination with other eligibility can seek admission in any of the renowned colleges in India. Students who secure top scores can utilize the government subsidies in fees and can complete the course at the minimal expense.

Yet another option of joining a college for engineering is getting admitted in the management seats. 

Every college is allowed to reserve certain number of seats for students of own preferences. Only a few number of students get at the top ranks of AIEE exams. 

But for those who have passed the exam, but couldn’t get the required score or those who couldn’t appear for the examination, the management seats are great help. 

The fees will be high for such students as it is decided by the college management.

A student can pursue the course in any college of his/her own preference. There are quite a good number of renowned colleges around the country which offer quality education and placement assistance. 

It is important to get admitted into a well equipped and professionally renowned college as the institution of study is important to obtain a highly paid job in a firm.
